It’s time these filthy reporters and media outlets get fired. President Trump is saying Chuck Todd should be fired for his edits on Attorney General William Barr’s words. He completely turned the story around. The NBC host of “Meet the Press” took a clip of a statement made by Barr concerning former national security adviser and three-star General Michael Flynn, and “inadvertently and inaccurately” used it to the fake news’ advantage.
President Trump slammed Todd in his post on Twitter, saying, “Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd should be FIRED by “Concast” (NBC) for this fraud. He knew exactly what he was doing. Public Airwaves = Fake News!” Trump also tagged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the chairman Ajit Pai.
Kerri Kupec, who is the director of communications and public affairs for the Department of Justice, also blasted Todd and “Meet the Press” for slaughtering Barr’s statement he made when the DOJ dropped Flynn’s case. She wrote, “Very disappointed by the deceptive editing/commentary by @ChuckTodd on @MeetThePress on AG Barr’s CBS interview. Compare the two transcripts below. Not only did the AG make the case in the VERY answer, Chuck says he didn’t; he also did so multiple times throughout the interview.”
Kupec also added the link to the interview. The mainstream media is the arm of the Democratic party, and they are deathly afraid of the truth which is coming out. Not only do they lie and promote false propaganda, but they are now cutting out statements from those who are pushing for the truth and justice. Kupec states how this edit was shoved down the viewers’ throats as it happened continuously throughout the entire interview.
So, check out how this played out. Here is the edited version of Todd’s interview with Peggy Noonan. Todd started it off with, “You brought up Bill Barr. Peggy Noonan, I want you to listen to this Bill Barr answer to a question about what history will say about this. Wait until you hear this answer. Take a listen.”
The slaughtered video was Barr giving his statement, which showed the interviewer asking Barr, “When history looks back on this decision, how do you think it will be written?” Barr replied, “Well, history is written by the winners. So, it largely depends on who’s writing the history.” The clip stopped before Barr was finished. It made it seem like he was boasting.
The clip abruptly ended when Todd rushed in and stated, “I was struck, Peggy, by the cynicism of the answer. It’s a correct answer. But he’s the attorney general. He didn’t make the case that he was upholding the rule of law. He was almost admitting that, yeah, this is a political job.”
This is what Trump and his team are up against every day. The filth and lies of a corrupt media who stop at nothing to make Trump, his team, and the DOJ look bad. It is an ongoing attack and pushed across the mainstream media.
Here is what the full transcript has on the CBS original interview. The person giving the interview asks Barr, “In closing, this was a big decision in the Flynn case, to – to say the least. When history looks back on this decision, how do you think it will be written? What will it say about your decision making?”
This was Barr’s full answer to the question, “Well, history is written by the winner. So it largely depends on who’s writing the history. But I think a fair history would say that it was a good decision because it upheld the rule of law. It helped; it upheld the standards of the Department of Justice, and it undid what was an injustice.”
Kupec was “disappointed” and called the interview a “deceptive editing/commentary” by “Meet the Press” and by the show’s host Chuck Todd. She added, “Not only did the AG make the case in the VERY answer Chuck says he didn’t, he also did so multiple times throughout the interview.”
“Meet the Press” gave a response to Kupec, stating, “You’re correct. Earlier today, we inadvertently and inaccurately cut short a video clip of an interview with AG Barr before offering commentary and analysis. The remaining clip included important remarks from the attorney general that we missed, and we regret the error.”
The truth is, they are not sorry because the mainstream media continues to deceive the American people. They are only sorry because they got called out on it.
