Even the Leftist media is turning squeamish at the sloppy propaganda their fellow Liberals are spewing against President-elect Donald Trump.
The Daily Caller posted:
Tom Brokaw and Mika Brzezinski slammed CNN and Buzzfeed for publishing an opposition memo alleging Russia has been helping President-elect Donald Trump for years, saying it’s “not even reportable” on “Morning Joe” Wednesday.
CNN first published a heavily hedged report Tuesday, in which they did not reveal the entire memo. Buzzfeed quickly followed up by posting the memo in full under the headline, “These Reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia.” Buzzfeed notes at the top of its piece that, “The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.”
Brokaw was shocked the pair went ahead with the story, and explained that he and others had been chasing the story for awhile, but couldn’t verify it.
Whoa! Tom had this to say.
BROKAW: It’s not even reportable because we don’t have the verification of the various charges that were there. So, it’s been around and an number of organizations have been looking at it for some time, I was surprised when it showed up in this form when it got to the intel agencies and they reported it to the president without any kind of conclusion about the veracity of it. So I think from the Trump organization point of view they’ve got a legitimate beef here.
And then there is this from Mika!
BRZEZINKSI: Tom I agree, you and Engel, everybody should work on stories that look like they are worth looking into. And we should continue to do so, and when you can triple source it and you have evidence then you have a story. Right now there is no story here. … The two outlets that are actually going with this and releasing it are continuing to make the same mistakes they have made in the run up to the election. They let their bias get in the way of actually finding out what facts are and putting them out there.
Have at least a couple in the Left wing media has learned a lesson?
Maybe they have learned that if they want to keep being journalists, they need to straighten up.
