People have a better chance of getting factual up-to-date news from watching old reruns of Gunsmoke than anything that is currently being televised today.



Found this today. www.nytimes.com...

The late fight at Pine Bluff occurred on Sunday morning, the 25th ult., about 8 o'clock. The rebels attempted a surprise on Col. CLAYTON, by 4,000 rebel cavalry. The troops were commanded by Gens. MARMADUKE....

Actual history has Confederate forces as around 2000 and union forces as 700+ 300 freed slaves+ local union aligned militia. Total around 1500 troops.

The New York Times has been fabricating news even way back in 1863.

According to the Times stated over 2000 Confed. casualties when actually only around 40 or so. Same with Union forces.

The NYT has been fabricating news a long time now.


Totally relevant as all of the same reporters are STILL working there! FFS.

This should really be in the Breaking News forum. The MSM are irresponsible hype artists? Whoa!

I did not know that. I hope he has some proof of this.

Looks like Russian Collusion™ isn't going so well, so now he's gotta downplay it for an obstruction charge. Soon there will be nothing.

Here is exactly what he said:
“What I have been telling all reporters is that many stories about our investigation have been inaccurate,” the Mueller spokesperson said. “Be very cautious about any source that claims to have knowledge about our investigation and dig deep into what they claim before reporting on it. If another outlet reports something, don’t run with it unless you have your own sourcing to back it up.”


Thanks for posting an exact quote for a fuller picture. I agree that the OP has the spin wrong.

My first impression from the thread title was that Mueller put out a statement condemning leakers...but, now I realize that Mueller is just giving the people on his team and the media a helpful primer on how to be more credible and compelling when disseminating leaked confidential information to the public.

One anonymous leak does so very little damage to due process rights.

But TWO leakers that can corroborate confidential information independently? Now THAT is an effective way to trample them.

Mueller exemplifies the integrity behind the U.S. Justice System.

That is not what he said, essentially.

Too bad they didn't dig deep when they went after the wrong Cohen for being in Prague.

Its a good thing that our government trusted these irresponsible hype artists with all sorts of classified material in leaks,

insider information on the inner details of the white house,

presidential debate questioned to be given in advance to the preferred candidates,

and anything else they could think of for whatever irresponsible reason.

watch how fast the left starts wanting him fired now..

This isn’t even the political mud pit and the second reply is a straw man attack on “the left”, keep up the good work ATS.


Not a straw man, a likely fact, though not absolute as nothing ever is.

To bad the article made up the connection between Mueller's spokesman comments and Cohen's Prague trip.

Its going to be quite the joke when they try and use
Comey's firing to hang obstruction on Trump.

After Comey's gushing tales of Trump hatred, and
Hillary love its all but tied up.

Maybe he will grow a man bun and wear sandals.

It's not that hard to figure out - he has nothing and the media keep hyping up some fantasy about collusion or obstruction of justice. He's trying to make sure his embarrassment is minimised when he has to admit he has nothing on Trump.

The obstuction of justice fantasy is going to be crushed very soon... perhaps as early as the end of the month.

I don’t, your quality of using a smiley at the end of every post causes me to tune you out.

I was hoping the bill to protect Mueller from being fired would be voted on and passed. But McConnell said no need to do that.
