White House Correspondents’ Association: ‘We Are Not Fake News’

Written by  Lucas Nolan

The president of the  White House Correspondents’ Association, Jeff Mason, claimed tonight that the media was not “Fake News.”

Mason began by discussing the accomplishments of the media in recent months and their interaction with President Trump, saying, “We have worked very hard to build a constructive relationship with his [President Trump’s] press team.

There are clear dividends from those efforts. The press is still in the White House briefing room, and we are still on Air Force One.”

Mason continued:

In fact, press access under President Trump has been very good. With all of the tension in the relationship, that aspect is often overlooked. We have had several press conferences, repeated opportunities to see and report on the president’s meetings, and with at least one notable and lamentable exception, good access to briefings with press staff and senior administration officials. Nevertheless, we cannot ignore the rhetoric that has been employed by the president about who we are and what we do. Freedom of the press is a building block of our democracy. Undermining that by seeking to delegitimize journalists is dangerous to a healthy republic.

“It is our job to report on facts and to hold leaders accountable.

Just keep telling yourself how relevant you are. You will eventually convince yourself. No one else will believe you... but you.

Tell somebody that gives a shit, asshole.

Maybe "Fake News" can be best understood by looking at post-WWII ABC, CBS, and NBC deliberate use of "Propaganda". All Stations copied news from AP, UP, & IMF and all newspeople read from the same news release. I was happy to see added stations; but they also read the same news notes. It now appears that the Journalist come from the Inbred Ivy League's liberal bias. The East Coast and West Coast pettycoat educated journalist should include the "fly-over" people who understand REAL life.

Jeff's lips look like he just left a "session" with shep smith.

They have worked hard to build a constructive relationship? Are they kidding? All they have ever done is lie about him and cover up for Hillary and Obozo and their crimes against this nation. And they call that a constructive relationship?

The Major Media has "worked hard" to make the Trump Presidency a failure. Mr. Mason, I understand your sophistic comments. Some may call it "Fake" news, but a False Statement is a "LIE"; which you people reinforce.

Right on the money.

What you are is a group of Phonies who are all collectively promoting a Political Agenda. Pause, Step Back, and take a long, hard , look, at what you are doing.
