THE ANONYMOUS SOURCES OF WASHINGTON POST AND CNN FAKE NEWS


From Daniel Greenfield at Front Page Magazine:
Media fake news is everywhere. 
No, the new health care bill does not treat rape as a pre-existing condition and Republicans did not celebrate its passage with beer.  
The latest media outrage is driven by a Washington Post story about intelligence disclosures based on claims by anonymous sources. The Post’s big hit pieces are mainly based on anonymous sources. 
Its latest hit piece runs a quote from, “a former senior U.S. official who is close to current administration officials.” That’s an anonymous source quoting hearsay from other anonymous sources. 
This isn’t journalism. It’s a joke. 
Last week, the Washington Post unveiled a story based on “the private accounts of more than 30 officials at the White House.” The fake news story falsely claimed that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to resign.  
Rod had a simple answer when asked about that piece of fake news. “No. 
So much for 30 anonymous sources and for the Washington Post’s credibility.  But the media keeps shoveling out pieces based on anonymous sources and confirmed by anonymous sources while ignoring the disavowals by those public officials who are willing to go on the record.  
The Comey memo story is based on, according to the New York Times, “two people who read the memo.” And then "one of Mr. Comey’s associates read parts of it to a Times reporter." 
And his dog.  
The supposed memo contradicts Comey’s own testimony to Congress under oath.

I also know a former senior U.S. official who is close to current administration officials.

(audio: heavy breathing) He told me it was "Colonel Mustard in the kitchen, with the candlestick."

I am not sh-ttin' you.
