New York Times Tries To Slander Trump Once Again, Gets Embarrassing Beat Down Instead

The New York Times, a once respected news outlet, has lost all credibility. Sadly, today the “paper of record” is nothing more than a rag of propaganda and lies. For years now, they’ve been producing invented stories to attack then-candidate and now President Donald Trump. Even though they were embarrassed with their predictions for the election, they continue to slander Trump. Their latest ploy tries to cast doubt about Trump’s resolve. However, they got serious backlash from the POTUS himself.

The New York Times has a pretty bad track record. They predicted Hillary Clinton would win the election by a landslide. After their titanically-bad coverage, they “promised” to provide more honest reporting in the future. I guess that was a lie too. Their super liberal reporters have done nothing but skew the facts in order to smear the Commander-in-Chief.

They might be as bad as CNN, if not worse. Those who run the newspaper have such a hatred for President Trump, they cannot cover him in an honest light. Much like the rest of the mainstream media, they have ruined their reputation with their dubious stories.

Recently, they published another story aimed at discrediting the President. Of course, it has everything to do with the witch hunt that is Robert Mueller’s Russian probe. The New York Times claims President Trump wanted to fire Mueller and end this joke of an investigation back in June. While there’s nothing wrong with that, they framed it to be another outrageous claim of obstruction of justice.

Mueller III, the special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, according to four people told of the matter, but ultimately backed down after the White House counsel threatened to resign rather than carry out the directive.

Why is this dubious? Because, once again, a liberal outlet is citing “four people told of the matter.” Notice they aren’t quoting people actually involved in the story. Nobody within the White House spoke with The New York Times. They just have four nameless sources who claimed they were told of this. The story is removed from the source, what, four times? And, we’re supposed to believe this is fact.

The story frames the situation as President Donald Trump becoming impatient, angry, and downright obsessed with Mueller’s Russian probe. All to paint the picture that he’s nervous over what Mueller might find. Again, another attempt at by The New York Times to suggest the President is guilty of collusion — not because of any evidence, which does not exist, or actual facts. The New York Times is suggesting this, through hearsay, hints, and a heavy dose of manipulation.

Nonetheless, Mr. Trump has wavered for months about whether he wants to fire Mr. Mueller, which is an omnipresent concern among the president’s legal team and close aides. The White House has denied nearly a dozen times since June that Mr. Trump was considering firing Mr. Mueller. The president’s lawyers, including Mr. Cobb, have tried to keep Mr. Trump calm by assuring him for months, amid new revelations about the inquiry, that it is close to ending.

Of course, Trump is firing back. Because of the bias and dishonesty of The New York Times, the President is forced to become combative. He declared the story fake news, acknowledging that kind of coverage is typical of The New York Times.

As you can imagine, The New York Times has zero incentive to prove what they write. People who are interested in facts won’t believe it. Their rabid, liberal audience, however, will eat it up simply because they already hate Trump and are looking for excuses to bash him. Not once will they stop and consider the story is built on nothing but hearsay. All they need is a little bit of a reason to complain.

This is the state of the mainstream media in 2018. They are not interested in facts or evidence. Desperate, they push rumors and unnamed sources to back their anti-American agenda. It’s no wonder they continue to lose.
