In this thread Hillary Clinton converses with the dead, no righties had any problem with Bob Woodward’s claims then.


Did Hillary deny that she conversed with the dead?
She is also into Voodoo and Chicken Sacrifices....

Yeah, one really freaky old witch she is.....

This is not journalism, it’s gossip


Let's wait for the tapes to get subpoenaed, shall we?


Why won’t Woodward just release them?

I mean people are saying he is already wealthy, so there is no need for him to sell books

This isn’t political on Woodward’s part, just journalism right?

So let’s hear the tapes

Oh that’s right, he does want to sell as many books as possible, as you know

And his tapes are probably anonymous people claiming they heard trump or Mattis say things, with no proof

And it’s all unimportant gossip anyways

Man I should write an anti trumo book and make millions

“A source I talked to said trump is a terrible speller, and can’t eat soup without spilling it on himself “

Your crowd would eat it up and claim it would be a reason for impeachment

Why would he not just release his tape? Because he does not have it.

Exactly! In what weird world do journalists protect their sources?

It's called "professional ethics." Please learn about journalism in a liberal democracy before you start trying to critique it.

Did I?

Can you post when I did?

And you are comparing online anonymous posters to the reactions of people with power, like the main stream media and democratic politicians to their hysterics about people calling trump dumb

It’s now professional journalism ethics to spread gossip and not release your proof of it?

Wow

And further more, the media release tapes all the time to make trump look bad, without them being subpoenaed

In fact Woodward himself has released a tape of his call to trump I believe

So are you saying by releasing that tape he broke ethics standards?

I don't think you understand what the word "gossip" means.

When that anonymous source is directly contradicted by those that the allegations are directed at, only two things can occur for most rational people:
1. The story loses all credibility
2. The source comes forward and makes their allegations public record.

Anything else is a bunch of nonsense

This book must be true because Woodward hasn’t been sued


Do you even know who Bob Woodward is?




Oops, just last week he was embarrassed by his own source for the trump tower story he did coming out and saying that the story was false and he misspoke

Something so damning to the story that almost every other news outlet that ran the story retracted it

But not Bernstein and cnn



EVERYTHING in that is objectively false.

A) Bernstein accurately reported what Cohen's Attorney claimed. Cohen's Attorney does not deny that, but has changed his story now.

B) Bernstein has reported on the changing story.
C) Bernstein reported on Cohen's Attorney's changing story on CNN.

So Bernstein and CNN have fully and accurately covered that story, even when Cohen's Attorney changed his.

Attorney for Michael Cohen keeps changing his story on Trump Tower meeting
By Jim Sciutto and Carl Bernstein, CNN


www.cnn.com...

AND AS A SIDENOTE:

CNN says it has other sources that claim first hand knowledge that Don Jr. talked to Trump about the Trump Tower Meeting before it happened.

Pretty sure that tidbit will be an item in Mueller's final report.

Especially when it seems like Woodward’s book here is about who gossiped about whonin the White House

This is not journalism, it’s gossip

It was an excuse for the WaPo to engage in propaganda, while using Woodward’s book as the basis. Check out these headlines:

Bob Woodward’s new book reveals a ‘nervous breakdown’ of Trump’s presidency

The problem is that Mattis has not made a public statement, Trump tweeted a statement he claims Mattis made. Trump is a questionable source at best.

Propaganda is not necessarily false, you know. Sometimes the truth makes the best propaganda.

1. Cnn first reported Bernstein’s story and said they reached to Lanny Davis for comment and he didn’t have a comment

This was a lie, because Davis was the source of their story

2. Cnn has not retracted the story, which has been done by near every other outlet

They claim to have other sources, but who cares

None of those sources would have more direct knowledge of what Cohen was going to testify too than his own lawyer

This just shows that cnn will stand by a story spread by any random anonymous source, even if the very lawyer of the person denies it

3. Bernstein coming out later and calling out Davis does not absolve Bernstein of his shoddy journalism

He and his network lied by saying the very person that was their source had no comment, and are standing by the story despite cohens own attorney saying it’s not true

And who cares that cnn has other sources that know about the trumo tower meeting

The Bernstein story was about what Cohen knows, and what he would tell mueller

And they lied and were wrong

You are running in a circle that leads back to TRUMP TWEETING mocked up statements by Mattis and Kelly.

Show me actual statements released by the United States Secretary of Defense? He releases statements ALL THE TIME. Why the silence and a weird picture of a typed up doc by Trump that includes quotation marks?
HINT Official Statements by people don't quote themselves?
And they have letterhead and signatures.
And THE ACTUAL PEOPLE issuing the statements release them, Trump doesn't tweet them.

Ditto for the Office of The Whitehouse Chief of Staff.
He doesn't quote himself in statements and he issues his own statements, letterhead, signature and all. Doesn't look to have Trump tweet his statements.

Better yet, they can simply give an interview or call a press huddle and deny it on Camera.
None of that sidestep BS where they say they won't discuss gossip or they have a great relationship with trump.
Deny they said what they were quoted saying.

These guys are trying to balance preserving their jobs with preserving their honor.

Neither has precisely denied they said what they said. Trump has, but they haven't.
