Trump Calls Media’s Anonymous Sources ‘Bulls–t’ During Event – Crowd Goes Wild (VIDEO)

In the age of Trump, the media has gotten way too lazy and relies on ‘anonymous sources’ way too often.

Trump has certainly noticed. He called the media out for this during an event he did with the National Association of Realtors in DC this week. He called the anonymous sources ‘bullshit’ and the crowd loved it.

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Friday railed against the use of anonymous sources in news reports about his administration, calling it “bullshit.”

The president went on a tangent during remarks to the National Association of Realtors in Washington, D.C., complaining about news coverage of his administration’s approach to Iran.

He disputed that he is at odds with some of his top advisers on the subject, before mocking the way some of the reports use unnamed administration officials.

“Do you ever notice they never write the names of people anymore?” Trump said. “Everything is ‘a source says.’ There is no source. The person doesn’t exist. The person’s not alive. It’s bullshit, OK? It’s bullshit.”

News outlets often quote government officials who are granted anonymity to speak candidly without fear of retribution.

Just this week, an official from the Trump administration detailing its immigration plan did so on the condition they be referred to only as a senior administration official and not by their name.

Notice how Reuters puts a ‘language warning’ on this. Do you think they would do that to anyone else?

People on Twitter noticed the ridiculous warning:

Hey Reuters, maybe Trump said this because it’s true.
