The List: The Media Has Pushed AT LEAST 109 Fake Stories About Trump

The mainstream media has proven that there’s no story they can’t spin against President Donald Trump – and sometimes there’s no need for spin – they simply make it up.

Former CBS journalist Sharyl Attkisson put together an exhaustive list documenting 109 times the media spread fake stories about President Trump and his administration. Unfortunately I don’t think there’s enough ink and paper in the world to extensively document all of the media’s lies about the Trump administration, but she’s caught plenty of damning examples.

  • Dec. 8, 2017: CNN’s Manu Raju and Jeremy Herb reported that Donald Trump Jr. conspired with WikiLeaks in advance of the publication of damaging Democrat party and Clinton campaign emails. Many other publications followed suit. They had the date wrong: WikiLeaks and Trump Junior were in contact after the emails were published.
  • March 8, 2018: The New York Times’ Jan Rosen reported on a hypothetical family whose tax bill would rise nearly $4,000 under Trump’s tax plan. It turns out the calculations were off: the couple’s taxes would go actually go down $43; not up $4,000.
