Dino Media Twists Trump’s Words — Joanne Yurchak has let us know that the dino media is still playing its games.
Huffington Post takes from President-elect Trump’s interview with Chris Wallace that aired yesterday (Dec. 11) on Fox News that “Trump Says He Doesn’t Need Daily Intelligence Briefing Because He’s ‘Smart.'”
Business Insider shouts in a headline “TRUMP: I’m a ‘smart person,’ don’t need intelligence briefings every single day.”
Here’s what he actually said: “I get when I need it. First of all, these are very good people that are giving me the briefings. And I say if something should change from this point, immediately call me. I’m available on one minute’s notice. I don’t need to be told … the same thing every day, every morning ― same words. ‘Sir, nothing has changed. Let’s go over it again.’ I don’t need that . . .”
It seems a rather sensible allocation of priorities than arrogance.
Journalism is a noble vocation and an important bulwark for a free society. The corporate frauds who control our once major media companies have long stopped practicing it.
