Brian Williams: Trump Attacking Media
Because When You Reduce Its Prestige, It
Diminishes the Facts They Report

Breitbart Video, by Ian Hanchett

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/17/2017 10:21:56 AM

(Video) On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour,” anchor Brian Williams argued President Trump’s criticisms of the media were “Because when you reduce the media enough in prestige, they — when they do report facts, those facts are diminished.” During a discussion on Trump’s press conference earlier in the day, USA Today Senior Politics Reporter Heidi Przybyla stated, “[T]he press provided basically the most essential task that the Founders intended for us to do, which was, we outed a public official, who was lying to the public, about the nature of his contacts about what many would define as

I think Brian Williams said the same thing during the Pelloponesian War and the ascension of Charlemagne to the throne in 802ad.

You can also decrease the Media´s prestige by keeping lying incompetents like Brian William around.

This is rich coming from a hack who contributed to the reduction of the media´s ´prestige´ because he lied about his helicopter being shot down. Link below. In that link Williams says " I don’t know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another.” He couldn´t very well say he wanted to make himself into a big, brave hero from the media instead of portraying the pathetic lying weeny that he is.

The press reduced its own prestige, Trump was just arrogant enough to state the obvious. If these jerks would report the truth, there would be no need to call them out for pushing a bogus narrative. If they think the lies they push are "facts", lets see the evidence. Don´t have any beyond "anonymous sources"? I call BS, and so does the rest of the viewing public. Liars!

This guy is a habitual liar. There are approximately 10 major embellishments he´s made over the years. They´ve ranged from being live in Germany when the wall came down to being hit by a missle in Iraq. For nbc news to bring him back is unforgivable. He is the poster child for Fake news! Unless of course it´s Dan Rather. Both are being trotted out to deep six President Trump and his administration. Ray Charles can see the hypocrisy.

and I imagine here is the REAL story about that dead body floating in the street in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina . . .

"well, what happened is this, when I emerged from the taxi, I happened to look down and saw one of those little plastic baby dolls that they put in their King Cakes down there and a moment later, my slacks were spattered by a passing bicyclist . . .

well, I was so upset when the hotel told me they couldn´t dryclean my slacks right away - due to problems from Katrina - that I conflated that little plastic baby doll with the body of a real person."

(please note, the above is suejeanne´s own version of the Katrina story, trying to figure out how Mr. Williams thought he saw a dead body floating along in the street)

Look at the actual quote: "...when they do report facts, those facts are diminished." Focus on the word "do". Williams in unintentionally confirming that the media does not report facts all the time i.e., when they "do" report the facts those facts are diminished. His statement is very telling.

Political hacks and Very Fake News pundits have been trying to make Donald Trump, now President Trump’s, ownership in the Trump International DC hotel a conflict of interest. GSA Feds today struck down those claims.

Republican leaders canceled a vote in the House on the plan to replace ObamaCare Thursday, after leadership´s attempts to lobby enough votes apparently failed -- a major setback for House Speaker Paul Ryan and President Trump. Trump and Republican leaders had spent much of the day scrambling to get both moderates and conservatives on board with the increasingly unpopular legislation. Ryan postponed his press conference twice as he worked with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy R-Calif., Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., to get enough votes to get the American Healthcare Act through the

Yet sufficient action was not taken to prevent them from conducting terror attacks: (Tweet) Since then, I´ve chronicled (in nearly two dozen articles) the

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower.

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

President Trump is facing the first crucial test of his presidency — repealing and replacing Obamacare — and he needs to apply the negotiating chops and deal-making skills he bragged about in his bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” to fixing our broken health-care system. And given his low approval ratings, he needs a win. Dealing with the Obamacare mess has been the core focus of the Republican party for the past 7 years — not to mention a major campaign promise that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. So it’s imperative that the president seal the deal and
