In America, we place one of our highest values on the Freedom of the Press.
So high that we literally made it #1 on the list (Bill of Rights).
But the Freedom of the Press is not absolute.
It is based on a fair exchange of free and honest reporting in exchange for protections to do the free and honest reporting.
When the “free and honest reporting” part of the exchange ceases to exist, then so should the protections we give to the press.
And we might even need to start investigating them if they’re purposefully or intentionally engaging in false reporting (or as Trump would call it, Fake News!).
Beacuse Fake News is truly the enemy of the American public and it’s absolutely REPUGNANT to a free republic!
So it’s this writer’s opinion that Rudy Giuliani shoud be commended for his recent call that BuzzFeed be investigated!
Here’s what Rudy had to say on Twitter:
I commend Bob Mueller’s office for correcting the BuzzFeed false story that Pres. Trump encouraged Cohen to lie. I ask the press to take heed that their hysterical desire to destroy this President has gone too far. They pursued this without critical analysis all day. #FAKENEWS
Now the DOJ must reveal the leakers of this false BuzzFeed story which the press and Democrats gleefully embraced. And maybe House Dems should wait to investigate until the Mueller report is filed. 4 have started already.There may be nothing to legitimately investigate.
Breitbart had this to say on the emerging story:
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” former New York City mayor and President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said BuzzFeed should be “under investigation” for their report based on anonymous source said that claimed Trump instructed his lawyer Michael Cohen to lie about a proposed Trump Tower project in Russia.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office has disputed the BuzzFeed report.
Giuliani said, “Yesterday BuzzFeed published a story that was scandalous. It was horrible. They should be sued, under investigation. They said the president of the United States counseled someone to lie.”
He added, “Michael Cohen is a serial liar. If you can figure out what Michael Cohen is telling the truth, you’re better than I am, Jake. That’s what happened to BuzzFeed. They bought a totally phony story. They weren’t going to buy it unless they got some phony stuff about federal agents and then they went with it because they are the same ones who published the Steele dossier when no one else would do it. Obviously have a hatred for the president.”
