8 Fake News Stories Being Peddled About Michael Cohen’s Guilty Plea

Post by 1989TransAm » Tue Dec 04, 2018 7:03 am

"Last week, Donald Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about efforts to build a Trump Tower complex in Moscow. Cohen told the Senate Intelligence Committee that the Trump Organization stopped pursuing the project in January 2016, but in pleading guilty Cohen stated that he continued to pursue the Trump Tower project into June of that year. Cohen claimed he lied out of loyalty to Trump and to be consistent with then-candidate Trump’s political messaging.
Following Cohen’s surprise guilty plea, the media and critics of the president wasted no time pushing collusion narratives, conspiracy theories, and outright falsehoods. Here are the top eight examples of the fake news being peddled.
1. Donald Trump Jr. Lied To Investigators
NPR’s Friday morning reporting of the development provides the clearest example of the mainstream media pushing fake news in response to Cohen’s guilty plea. After summarizing the details of his plea, NPR pivoted to Donald Trump Jr.’s role in the Moscow Trump Tower negotiations, and claimed the younger Trump lied about the timing of his involvement in the project."

Surprising to hear NPR elevated to "mainstream" status here.

I disagree, they are IMO, regardless of any bias, the most sophisticated national radio news outlet, I don't think the "mainstream" listening audience can relate, personally, which is sad.

Based on the "mainstream' respondents here, I rest my case :lol: .

They had to make lots of corrections on fake stories

But as the left always does,, believe it right off the hop and never go deeper...when they want it to be so real

There's been about a 100 "stories " now than where " defiantly " going to take trump down, so they said

Waiting........
