In the age of Trump, most of the so-called journalists in print, the internet and TV have decided that they no longer need to use actual sources.
The leftist anti-Trump CNN, NYT, Washington Post and others have their favorite phrases at the ready so that they are able write and broadcast totally fraudulent stories.
You can pretty much look at any story they cover and you see no actual sources.
Just today, I saw many stories about how Trump is mad about the rally attendance and his campaign manager better start looking for a new job. Not one of these stories named any real people as sources.
The story by CNN says that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are “pissed” with Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, because of his predictions of a larger crowd size for the Oklahoma rally.
Where did CNN get their information?
“According to a Trump campaign source.”
Who is that? The janitor’s dog?
The same story, reported by MSN used the phrase “according to four people familiar with what took place.”
Start receiving the latest news from award winning journalist, TV broadcaster and radio host Steve Gruber.
All I ever see in the stories coming out of the leftist democrat media are made-up people.
Which means they can write any story they want. And they do.
Their information comes from…
“Sources close to the situation…”
“A highly placed source…”
and my favorite…
“according to multiple sources close to the White House.”
Who are these multiple sources? The cashiers at the McDonald’s down the street?
Using multiple anonymous sources is a good disinformation campaign. It shows that there are LOTS of people in the White House who don’t really like Trump and they’re willing to keep CNN on speed-dial.
This has been going on for a while now.
I believe I first noticed it when the whole fake Russia story started coming out. In their coup against the president, the media helped the democrats with all kinds of fake stories. Because their stories were all lies, they had to use fake sources for their fake stories to pretend they were credible. And then all of their other friends in the media take the original story and they re-write it so all of a sudden you have 20 stories about the same thing. So it must be true, right?
I remember taking journalism classes in high school and being taught about ethics and using real sources and crazy things like that. All that has been thrown out the window so the leftists can get click bait and take out Trump in the process.
And quite often, the story isn’t even the most important part of the story. It’s the headline that makes all the difference. They need a viral headline to go big on social media. Sometimes the story doesn’t even match the headline. But the leftist media knows their ignorant readers often won’t go past the headline. They’ll just like and share and that will be it. Who needs real sources for that?
