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.

This guy has zero credibility, so who is he to start criticizing Trump. The media in this county doesn´t report facts anymore, just liberal, leftist propaganda. Crawl back into your hole Williams!

Not sure which question we should be asking you:
a) Can´t you be bothered to find someone?
b) You really believe he is the only one that can do this job?

Donald Trump´s chief strategist Stephen Bannon is coming back in from the cold with his combative skills more in-demand as the White House battles investigators and the media. Bannon took a lower profile in recent weeks after reports on his clashes with Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner. President Trump grew increasingly frustrated, as the conflict reportedly sparked a staff civil war in the West Wing, and at one point ask them to ´work it out,´ CNN reported. Now, White House sources are touting Bannon as a ´wartime consigliere´ who can help Trump battle the media and circling investigators, Axios reported Friday.

(Video) After learning that Megyn Kelly‘s NBC News debut would be coming in June, we now get to see a promo for her Sunday show. This promo really plays it safe, which makes sense. Kelly had a very tumultuous time at Fox News between the never-ending attacks from then-candidate and now-president Donald Trump and the alleged sexual harassment she endured from Roger Ailes. Still, it’s very safe. The Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly teaser promises “sharp, strong journalism” and shows some pre-taped footage of her conducting interviews, but leaves it at that.

President Trump resisted some intense lobbying by leaders of other industrialized nations Friday to back the Paris climate-change agreement at a G7 summit in Sicily, Italy. After hours of discussions, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni told reporters that the U.S. position on the Paris accord remains an “open question.” “All others have confirmed their total agreement on the accord,” he said of the leaders of Germany, Japan, Italy, Britain, France and Canada. Former President Barack Obama signed the Paris agreement to limit carbon emissions in 2015, but Mr. Trump is weighing a move to pull the U.S. out of the

Republican Greg Gianforte won Thursday’s special election for the U.S. House in Montana, defeating Democratic challenger Rob Quist despite being charged with misdemeanor assault the day before. Gianforte will now take over former Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke’s House seat. Zinke vacated the seat when he accepted the post of Secretary of the Interior in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet. The election results — with Gianforte winning over 50% of the vote and leading by a seven-point margin — were a major blow to Democrats’ anti-Trump efforts, and to the media’s expectations, after Gianforte had allegedly “body-slammed” a reporter before his final

Now he and his party’s leaders are trying to move on. On the eve of the special election, the wealthy technology entrepreneur flipped out when the Guardian’s Ben Jacobs asked him about the CBO’s score of the health care bill. He now faces misdemeanor assault charges for reportedly throwing Jacobs to the ground and breaking his glasses. “I made a mistake,” the congressman-elect said at his party in Bozeman. “Not in our minds!” yelled
