Comparing Fact against Fiction

July 8, 2020 |

Byron York of the Washington Examiner compares what President Trump said at Mount Rushmore to what Trump-hating media outlets like the New York Times and the Washington Post told their readers that he said. Their "reporting" reflects reality about as accurately as a Picasso portrait with three noses.

Let this stand as an important lesson: from now on, and especially until the election, do not believe anything that these media outlets tell you that Trump (or for that matter, any Republican) said. Go to the Internet and check out the original source. That’s what my staff and I have been doing for years, and we’ve had to issue far fewer corrections than the New York Times does.

It’s sad that this is necessary, but these outlets have willingly quit the journalism business to become 24/7 Baghdad Bobs for the Democratic Party. Believing that you know what Trump said because you heard it from them would be like thinking you really understand Israeli government policies because you watch Al Jazeera.

    To relate to young people who were not at least 10 years of age by 2003, the writer needs to expand on the term "Bagdad Bob(s)". Actually, as I remember, "Baghdad Bob" was none other than one Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf. Perhaps a hyperlink to Wikipedia would be in order.

    He became a favorite of comical ridicule as he would say the most outlandish things about how the Coalition Army was being routed while the American tanks were in downtown Bagdad with a cable wrapped around Saddam's statue in the city square.

    Our "modern free press" is saturated with Baghdad Bob(s). They went to "journalism school" in order to learn how to craft mass lies about what people think and feel.

    The Big Book reminds us the Devil (angel) is the Father of all Lies.
