If you wanted to completely discredit a media (and political opponent) that you believe is out to get you, how would that be done? If you were to leak many false stories and the media were to publish without verifying, how would that turn out for the media? Over time would they still be credible? Would it also leave an opponent looking incompetent as they latch on to every narrative supporting their cause?
How would the media counter? Perhaps by actually investigating and reporting verifiable facts. But they just can’t control themselves. When one has a bias and can’t account for it in their reporting it’s very difficult to see the facts.
Just thinking out loud….
And the democrats think the Russians influenced the election huh?
On Wednesday, a group of African-American teenagers tortured a white man with special needs and streamed the horrific acts on Facebook.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked if President Obama had any comment about the video.
“I haven’t spoken to the President about it, but I am confident he would be angered by the images that are depicted on that video,” Earnest told the reporter.
The reporter asked Earnest if this rose to the level of a hate crime.
“I think it’s too early to tell. I certainly don’t want to predict where the investigation will lead,” Earnest told the reporter. “I wouldn’t speculate at this point to what degree federal officials would get involved for considering those kinds of crimes.”
CHICAGO (AP) — Hate crime, battery charges filed against four black suspects accused in beating of white man streamed live on Facebook.
White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan
The CIA’s top officer in Kabul was exposed Saturday by the White House when his name was inadvertently included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in President Obama’s surprise visit with U.S. troops.
The White House recognized the mistake and quickly issued a revised list that did not include the individual, who had been identified on the initial release as the “Chief of Station” in Kabul, a designation used by the CIA for its highest-ranking spy in a country.
Who needs an Edward Snowden? I guess that’s the only way the President would know who’s on the list is if it were in the news.
Obama Learns about scandals from who?
I’m not the only one noticing.
"Forget for a moment that Republican outrage," said King on his CNN show this morning. "More and more Democrats in key 2014 races are calling for the president to get a spine, they say, and fire his Veterans Affairs secretary. And what more and more Democrats are saying privately is scathing, calling the president and his team detached, flat footed, even incompetent.
