Fake News: WaPo Fabricated Viral Claim That Sean Spicer Was Hiding in Bushes

Published

After the Washington Post claimed that Press Secretary Sean Spicer was “hiding in bushes” to avoid questions from reporters about FBI Director James Comey’s firing, the paper has once again had to admit that they published fake news.

In an article titled “After Trump fired Comey, White House staff scrambled to explain why” by Jenna Johnson, she made the spectacular claim that Spicer had actually hid in bushes to avoid questions from the Washington elite media.

“After Spicer spent several minutes hidden in the bushes near these sets, Janet Montesi, an executive assistant in the press office, emerged and told reporters that Spicer would answer some questions, as long as he was not filmed doing so. Spicer then emerged,” Johnson wrote.

The claim went rapidly viral, the latest bit of gossip to paint the White House as being run by a bunch of hapless nitwits.

 

Like so many of these stories, the claim ended up being false.

Hours later, the story was updated.

“EDITOR’S NOTE: This story has been updated to more precisely describe White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s location late Tuesday night in the minutes before he briefed reporters. Spicer huddled with his staff among bushes near television sets on the White House grounds, not ‘in the bushes,’ as the story originally stated.”

Essentially, Spicer was standing outside.

The countless articles and viral tweets citing Johnson have not all been updated, however — and this is how fake news is born.

Despite being one of the leading organizations against “fake news,” the legacy paper seems to have a problem with getting their facts straight.

For example, in January, the paper published an alarming story falsely claiming that Russian hackers had penetrated the US power grid through a Vermont utility.

The headline of the story declared, “Russian operation hacked a Vermont utility, showing risk to US electrical grid security, officials say.” But the story was a complete fabrication. The article, which sourced unnamed officials, was rapidly debunked as officials on record stated that there was no evidence that the Russian government hacked or targeted the utility.

Not only was there no penetration of the US power grid by Russia, there was no penetration of the grid by anyone.

Perhaps the Post is correct, and “fake news” is a serious problem. To begin cleaning it up, maybe they should start in their own newsroom.

Trump’s DHS Ignores Far BLM/Antifa Terrorists, Declares So-Called ‘White Supremacists’ to Be Top Domestic Terror Threat

Cops are being shot in the street.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf is the latest Trump administration official to fold to the left-wing narrative to demonize white people, claiming that so-called “white supremacist extremists” are the real terrorist threat, and refusing to name ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter as the top domestic terror threats in the U.S.

“White supremacist extremists, from a lethality standpoint over the last two years, particularly when you look at 2018 and 2019, are certainly the most persistent and lethal threat when we talk about domestic violent extremists,” Wolf said while addressing senators – citing no figures to back his assertion up.

In addition to peddling deep state nonsense against white people, Wolf also parroted talking points about how the evil Rooskies are going to interfere in this election. He claimed that “Russia looks to denigrate former Vice President Biden” and that they are undermining U.S. elections. He seemed to give Iran and China a pass when addressing those hostile nations though.

Wolf’s comments show that the DHS is as compromised as the FBI. Big League Politics has reported about how the FBI has covered for ANTIFA/BLM terrorists while putting the focus on white supremacists as cities are razed by organized gangs of roving savages:

As Black Lives Matter (BLM) and ANTIFA wage war on the streets of America, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is concerned about making sure the thugs stay safe from their opponents as they lay waste to cities throughout the country.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced in a press release on Wednesday that FBI agents had apprehended 42-year-old El Paso resident Manuel Flores for allegedly “posting a threatening communication over the Internet.”

In the offending video, Flores allegedly made several racial slurs and dared BLM activists to try to “stop him” from exercising his Constitutional rights. This caused the feds to intervene in order to protect the organized movement of rioters destroying the country.

“Our office will treat any threats of violence against protesters extremely seriously,” U.S. Attorney John Bash wrote in a statement released over Twitter.

The FBI has carried water for the left-wing agitators since the beginning of the nationwide riots, doing everything they can to paint conservatives and right-wingers as the real threat…

The deep state clearly wants these riots to continue, as it may be their only chance to avoid the Trump administration’s reprisal for their illegal Russian collusion witch hunt and various other criminal activities.

The president’s administration has been subverted and is working to demonize white people for the globalists. The systemic hatred against white people is rising, and the Department of Homeland Security is fanning the flames of this hatred with nonsense.
