Media Asks For Evidence the Government Spied on Trump Campaign, Sean Spicer Quotes The Media as Proof

by Steve MacDonald

His point is, the press is up there demanding, “Where are you getting this stuff? Your boss is an idiot. What do you mean Trump thinks that Obama wire –” So Spicer said, well, let me tell you where we got it. We got it from you!Rush Limbaugh

The media is naturally upset that Press Secretary Spicer is quoting the media as proof that the media is not just selective in its coverage but selective in its memory.

    That was a nice catch-22. “You can’t quote that we made that up” “Oh, so you admit that you are just fake news?” “No, we’re real but it’s not fair quoting us”

    As for one of the NYT headlines, back around 20 Jan it had “wiretapping” in the headlines, but was changed a week or two ago.

    So, I’m guessing you think James Comey’s flat out denial of wiretapping allegations is fake news too?

      Which wiretapping?
      The wiretapping the NYT wrote about on page one?
      Or government surveillance of just about everyone in general.
      At this point I think we are at the “tip” of the “taps.”

        Tip of the taps. Clever.
        If you bothered to read the NYT story, you’d see that it talks about wiretaps of Russian operatives who may have been in contact with Trump associates (it’s certainly permissible to surveil agents of foreign governments) — not of Trump himself, as the president asserted. Second, Trump was clearly not talking about surveillance of everyone in general, and he intends to keep right on allowing the NSA and CIA to surveil us all as usual. Every Republican of any stature has agreed that there’s nothing to the wiretap allegations, which is more than can be said for the ongoing FBI investigation.

          Here is what I know.
          The NYT wrote about wiretaps catching Trump when it served their purpose.
          When it did not, they changed their headline. Did you bother to read the headline?
          Obama wiretapped reporters and we have an actual IP address to go by with what was done to Sharyl Attkisson. Plus the reporter from FOX. Obama’s IRS Commissioner used that agency against political opponents. He is not above tapping phones – tapping, as in, electronic surveillance of all kinds – and banking it for use in the future. Just like Hillary stole 900 FBI files.
          What is hard to understand?
          Another fact I know is Trump plays the media for fools. Just like a fish on a line, you feed them enough to wear them out.
          They have not figured that out yet because the liberal media have a case of “Lets get Trump” tunnel vision. And they are not that intelligent – for the most part. Cunning and ruthless, they are. But intelligent – not so much.
