On Monday, Twitter was pushing and promoting a headline by the New York Times, that got special priority elevation posting in their “Top News” section of the Social Media company, which claimed that the US Attorney General, Bill Barr, was thinking of leaving his position and it was picked up by other media groups, but that headline may not be true.
According to CBS News, the New York Times, seem by a majority of people as biased, the Enemy Media may be wrong. Catherine Herridge reported:
“A DOJ official tells @CBSNews that Attorney General Bill Barr intends to stay as long as President Trump needs him. Sunday NYTimes reported, “Barr Is Said to Be Weighing Whether to Leave Before Trump’s Term Ends”
The New York Times Story has a history of misleading Americans about President Donald J. Trump and his administration. In their article, three authors Katie Benner, Michael S. Schmidt, and Peter Baker have written one story titled, Barr, Is Said to Be Weighing Whether to Leave Before Trump’s Term Ends.
The three authors write, “The attorney general’s future came into doubt after he acknowledged that the Justice Department had not found evidence of widespread voter fraud in the president’s election loss.”
According to the three writers, they got their story from three people who understand Barr’s thinking. There are no official sources or any quotes from anyone, just three mysterious who believe they understand Barr’s thought process. Interesting.
“Attorney General William P. Barr is considering stepping down before President Trump’s term ends next month, according to three people familiar with his thinking. One said Mr. Barr could announce his departure before the end of the year.
It was not clear whether the attorney general’s deliberations were influenced by Mr. Trump’s refusal to concede his election loss or his fury over Mr. Barr’s acknowledgment last week that the Justice Department uncovered no widespread voting fraud. In the ensuing days, the president refused to say whether he still had confidence in his attorney general.”
This begs the question, are the three authors of the one article the same three who “says” that Bill Barr is thinking? Is it possible that the NYT wrote a propaganda piece to push their idea of the election results? Is their article meant to design a conflict and strain the relationship between Barr and Trump?
This is what passes as journalism today and is pass by online fact checkers.
The article then devolved into something like a high school reporter covering a lockerroom discussion of what happened between rival football players at the McDonalds after the Friday Night football game.
America deserves a better press-media than this article presents.
The three authors write,” One of the people insisted that Mr. Barr had been weighing his departure since before last week and that Mr. Trump had not affected the attorney general’s thinking.”
This story written by the New York Times and promoted by Twitter is sophomoric and that is being kind.
