Under Trump, reporters who write the truth will be called a 'liar'

Post  fatbob5 on Mon Jan 23, 2017 4:51 am

For most journalists, being a member of the White House press corps is their dream job.
Being up close to the President, reporting on events which will enter the history books is the pinnacle of their career.
But for the foreseeable future, the job will be a poisoned chalice, because even if you accurately report events, the President will call you dishonest.
That's what I take from yesterday's extraordinary comments by Donald Trump and his press secretary Sean Spicer.......

Trump plus acolytes do seem to have a tenuous grasp on reality

the picture used in that report showing crowds is obviously fake news as the trump picture was taken hours before the actual inauguration. Which is why it appears to show thin crowds.
That is what is meant by fake news.



I watched it on TV and that picture bore no comparison with the crowds at the actual event time.

now whether there was more or less than other events is debatable as there are no actual figures available or released by the parks department.

Apparently the weather on Trump's inauguration day was pretty foul...certainly not the sort to tempt huge crowds to stand outside on a January day.

Also, didn't Obama's inauguration coincide with a very special event in the US constitution, the bi-centenary of Abe Lincoln's inauguration as President?

My own feeling is that the spin doctors on both sides, plus the media, are all squaring up to each other like boxers before a championship fight.

TV viewers were around 40million
however the point is that the MSM has presented the picture on the right as being the turnout, where in fact that was taken several hours before the event happened. , whilst the picture on the right of obamas day was taken during the event itself.

Jon Gaunt and his couple of little helpers who he calls SlushPuppy and Snowflake went over there and covered the event. He went periscope and said the whole place was heaving

,.........According to the Washington Metro Area Transit Authority, 193,000 rides had been taken on the D.C. Metro as of 11 a.m. Friday, compared with 513,000 by the same time on the day of Obama’s inauguration in 2009................

.........“Only one news organization had a still photographer atop the Washington monument for the inauguration and I assigned him to be there,” Bourg wrote on Jan. 22. “This photo by Reuters News Pictures staff photographer Lucas Jackson was taken at 12:01:18 p.m. on Friday and not much earlier as many people are trying to claim.”

The New York Times tweeted photos from Getty Images in 2009 and the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee for 2017, writing that both were taken 45 minutes before the respective presidents’ swearing-in.......
