Here’s something many of you may not know is going on that is very irresponsible. Journalists and reporters use Twitter alot to get information out to the public as quick as possible. Yesterday, Donald Trump tweeted out how he went to visit Alexandria gunshot victim, Congressman Scalise, in the hospital. Trump said Scalise was in rough condition and to pray for him. Well, reporter, Jim Acosta, sent out a tweet saying the President never visited Scalise at the hospita!. This was read by thousands and even Jake Tapper took Acosta’s word and reported the findings. Well, it turns out Jim Acosta was wrong, and therefore Jake Tapoer. But instead of tweeting out a retraction saying he was wrong, Mr. Acosta just deleted the tweet and called it a day. No retraction, yet tens of thousands of people thought Trump just lied. Luckily real reporters who still believe in fairness captured an image of the tweet in error and tried to spread the correct version of events around while also publicly shaming Acosta. The fair reporters weren’t conservatives, but progressives. They just believe in the integrity of their profession
I don’t understand why Kathy Griffin is blaming Donald Trump for her predicament. He didn’t do anything to her, unless I missed something. It was the public, the left and right, who she outraged. Why obtain a lawyer? I could care kess about what she did…It was artistic expression, but obviously the public didn’t like it. But she’s blaming Trump. All he did was tweet about it, as usual, and said it hurt his family. But that was overshadowed by the public outcry which I can never read right.
