The Washington Post found itself in the middle of another media scandal.
And once again it involved a made up story about Donald Trump.
And now Donald Trump just destroyed The Washington Post over this fake news lie.
On Monday, The Washington Post issued a massive correction admitting that its bombshell January story claiming President Trump pressured a Georgia investigator to “find the fraud” and that they would be a “hero” for doing so used made up quotes.
An audio recording of the conversation showed Trump never said those things.
Donald Trump blasted The Post’s story as a hoax that fueled the Fulton County District Attorney launching another witch hunt criminal investigation into him.
“The Washington Post just issued a correction as to the contents of the incorrectly reported phone call I had with respect to voter fraud in the Great State of Georgia. While I appreciate The Washington Post’s correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt a non-story, the original story was a Hoax, right from the very beginning. I would further appreciate a strong investigation into Fulton County, Georgia, and the Stacey Abrams political machine which, I believe, would totally change the course of the presidential election in Georgia,” Trump wrote.
Trump added that the Fake News Media never makes major errors where stories feature fabrications about Democrats.
The errors only run in one direction – against the Republican Party and Donald Trump.
Donald Trump also ripped the media for trying to downplay or hold off on running stories that were damaging to Democrats in hopes of boosting their electoral chances.
Trump said the overwhelming evidence of bias meant that members of the press should be regarded as political activists and not journalists.
“You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way – against me and against Republicans. Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do the least harm — for example, after an election is over. Look no further than the negative coverage of the vaccine that preceded the election and the overdue celebration of the vaccine once the election had concluded. A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press. This latest media travesty underscores that legacy media outlets should be regarded as political entities — not journalistic enterprises. In any event, I thank The Washington Post for the correction,” Trump added.
