The media has pulled out all the stops in their effort to smear and ultimately stop Donald Trump.
This week, many media outlets ran with a story that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson doesn’t like it when staffers look him directly in the eye.
In fact, the Washington Post reported that State Dept. employees were ordered not to look at him.
Only one problem, it’s fake news…
From Hot Air:
No, not really, insists the Associated Press’ beat reporter at State for the last eighteen years. Matt Lee took to Twitter to dispute this claim, and to lament that bad reporting is making it more difficult to get reporting on real issues at Foggy Bottom needed attention. Lee responded to a tweet from The Hill repeating the Post’s story (via Twitchy)
When challenged on this story, Lee explained that the same claim got shopped to him “weeks ago,” and that his research proved it untrue. Lee also insinuated that these tidbits of fake news are coming from people hired by the Obama administration who have axes to grind.
Another swing and a miss from the mainstream media.
