Most journalists seem like anti-Trump activists these days but one Associated Press reporter was recently outed as nothing more than a far left political operative.
The Washington Times has the story:
AP outed for anti-Trump piece from leftwing activist
Another day, another media hit on President Donald Trump, it seems.
This one, from The Associated Press, who apparently hired a freelancer who went above and beyond journalistic duties to sneak her way into a “closed press” fundraiser to report on Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway’s comments — and paint them in a negative light, of course.
The wire service added fuel to the fire by publishing the report without a byline.
Here’s the backstory, from Breitbart: Conway was speaking at a fundraiser in New Hampshire a few days ago that was closed to the press. An AP freelancer apparently wormed her way in to the event — a freelancer named Melanie Plenda.
This is what Plenda wrote of the affair: “President Donald Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway has told supporters in New Hampshire they should ‘just ignore’ his critics and the incessant chatter about the scandals dogging him.” She also wrote that the attendees were “largely friendly” to Conway, but “some people in attendance withheld applause when Conway let loose with snarky comments about Democrat Hillary Clinton.”
That’s a real shocker, huh?
