When was the last time the Washington Post got a story right?

Monday, the Washington Post reported:
Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador
That was so wrong that Putin mocked the Post, telling reporters in Sochi:
"I spoke to him [Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov] today. I'll be forced to issue him with a reprimand because he did not share these secrets with us. Not with me, nor with representatives of Russia's intelligence services. It was very bad of him."
Spilling the beans to the Russians?

That was  a lie.

It was Fake News.

And yet the Post suffered absolutely no consequences for lying to the American people.

On May 10:
Comey sought more money for Russia probe days before he was fired by President Trump, officials say
That was  a lie.

It was Fake News.

And yet the Post suffered absolutely no consequences for lying to the American people.

Also on May 10:
[Deputy Attorney General Rod J.] Rosenstein threatened to resign after the narrative emerging from the White House on Tuesday evening cast him as a prime mover of the decision to fire Comey and that the president acted only on his recommendation, said the person close to the White House, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.
That was  a lie.

It was Fake News.

And yet the Post suffered absolutely no consequences for lying to the American people.

We allow this because we were taught that a free press is vital to our democracy.

But what do you do when a press is throwing a tantrum 24 hours a day over an election outcome it just does not wish to accept?

What do you do when the power of the press is used to cover up the massive abuse of power of one president -- Obama who spied on Trump, had the IRS harass the Tea Party, and allowed his Secretary of State to accept millions in donations from foreigners -- while that same press makes up stories daily about the current president?

Democracy dies in darkness?

The Washington Post's endless lies throw a lot of shade on America. A lot.




On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  1. Shouldn't you be asking if the press has ever gotten a story right?
    Think about the Gell-Mann amnesia effect. Whenever an expert in a field reads a press report about something he's an expert in, he sees that the report is erroneous. Then he goes on to read the rest of the paper as if it was written in dictation from God to Moses.
    Put together all reports and have them read by all experts. Will any be correct?
    I think the thing to ask is whether any press report looks like it was written without malicious destructive intent. How many of these have we seen lately?

  2. I'm afraid that nothing short of physical force will put a stop to the hysteria. Personally, I would recommend lobotomies. - Elric

  3. The spread of this fakery to what used to be "trusted voices" is what concerns me.
    For instance, Matt Drudge is either crossing over to the Kristol dark side, or he is merely switching over to a pay for play operation now, as suggested by some (old timer) bloggers like TruePundit. Nearly all top links at Drudge are to the fakepress WaPo, NYT, WSJ, etc.

    When was the last time you saw a Wa Times or Examiner link screaming up at the top of Drudge when it had more significant content (albeit at least 60% fake, as well)?

    I think Don stated this before...The Enquirer has become respectable.

    But, who's kidding who? We have to remember, first and foremost, that a plurality of people out there get yuge blue-pilled woodies from the fake nevertrumper content/hogwash. The faker the better for them.

    1. I've been wondering about that too, Russell. Drudge had always been one of my homepages, but not since earlier this month.

    2. Same here. Matt is going Chelsea Manning on us. It's kind of a bummer going to his site these days. Lotta negative stuff.

    3. Same here too. Down to three sites I read. Much better.

    4. I have noticed the same thing at Drudge. I'm about to give it up. Today they linked a cover at Time Magazine. Time Magazine? I don't even see that rag in doctor's offices any more.

    They've lost our trust, and they've lost what little trust we might have had in the Dems.

    This is how we get more Trump.

  5. I can't wait for all the media to go bankrupt and open the opportunity for some truth tellers to emerge.

  7. Id like to know where everyone's memory went in DC. Id think this should be passed around in response to the famous Comey "Memo"

    1. Yet even FNC is not contrasting the leak of the Comey memo to the actual testimony. Disgusting.
