The New York Times just got clobbered by press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
McEnenay called out the Times for false reporting in regards to Russian bounty intel that they claimed President Donald Trump was briefed on.
She didn’t stop there though. McEnenay then suggested that the Times give back all their Pulitzers.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany blasted The New York Times Monday over what she claimed was "false" reporting about whether President Trump was briefed about intelligence that Russia paid Taliban-linked militants bounties to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
McEnany took issue with the Times' "erroneous reporting" that President Trump was briefed on the intel, saying that the president is only briefed on verified intelligence and claiming there were "dissenting opinions” within the intelligence community. Trump himself has denied on Twitter that he or Vice President Mike Pence were briefed on the matter.
McEnany wrapped up the press briefing by slamming the Times' "absolutely irresponsible decision" to "falsely report" that the president was briefed.
"I really think that it's time for The New York Times to step back and ask themselves why they've been wrong, so wrong, so often," McEnany said. "The New York Times falsely claimed that Paul Manafort asked for polling data to be passed along to Oleg Deripaska before having to issue a correction. In June 2017, The New York Times falsely wrote all 17 intel agencies had agreed on Russian interference before having to issue a correction that it was only four agencies.
President Trump weighed in on Twitter, proclaiming he nor Vice President Mike Pence were briefed on any such bounties.
The New York Times has had a tough go with telling the truth, and Americans are sick of it.
Maybe it's too much to expect the New York Times to tell the truth.
After all, they've been getting away with it for so long now...
