Interesting article in 'Politico' today
by Andrea Mitchell, who has covered seven presidents.
“I have never seen anything like this where people just flat-out lie. You know, black is white and white is black, and they mislead you. It's really disconcerting to see the podium in the White House briefing room being used to mislead or misdirect or obfuscate.”
The White House staff is using the briefing room as a daily disinformation machine and a president and secretary of state outright undermining the ability of reporters to do their job.
Oh, and another thing she’d like to get straight: She’s not, she insists, some pro-Clinton hack. “I’ve covered seven presidents now,” Mitchell tells me, “and have not endeared myself to any of them. That’s the job. We are adversarial.”
I realize lies are nothing new to the FOXSheep, BUT, the rest of us, incl Andrea Mitchell, REALLY don't like it....
