A pair of RussiaGate conspiracy theorists at CNN who spent the past two years attempting to destroy President Donald J. Trump are now characterizing his refusal to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner as an “attack” on the media.
Brian Stelter characterized Trump’s refusal to indulge the corporate press as “another example” of the Trump “administration’s attack against the media.”
He justified his claim by whining that Trump is “having a rally this Saturday instead of attending the dinner and I do think it matters mostly because what it means about these tensions continuing to escalate.”
Stelter appeared on CNN Newsroom with fellow anchor Brooke Baldwin.
“You know, say what you will about the press, this is an event that honors the First Amendment,” Baldwin said.
Stelter replied with a diatribe, playing the victim:
Yes. That’s what it’s about, It is an awards dinner and a fundraiser. In the past, presidents have shown up even if they were angry at the press at any given time and, importantly, it’s useful for White House aide to smooze with reporters. It’s helpful for us to get to our sources. There’s some value in these sorts of festive events, but it is, as you said, another example of a tradition at least being put on pause during the Trump age.
When will the self-important hacks at CNN realize that they are unimportant shills of the Democratic Party establishment, and that this sort self-aggrandizement is unbecoming? Perhaps never.
“And it is no secret the President likes to insult the free press but now we’re learning the White House is actually telling the administration officials so boycott the dinner celebrating the First Amendment,” Baldwin whined, reiterating her point that somehow skipping the event is an affront on Americans’ Constitutional rights.
CNN can pretend that it deserves your respect. But after attempting to sabotage a duly elected president, it doesn’t. And it never will.

Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
