@charlescwcooke @FrankLuntzr @Julio_Rosas11epeating and reporting are two different things. Of course the quote was reported in news outlets but every article i read (and i certainly do not claim to have read every single article!) was careful to report it as a CLAIM, which remains accurate since he (still) claims this!
Dear all the people in my mentions disputing the FBI data I cited on air showing a spike in hate crimes, please get off this platform immediately and call the FBI because clearly you know something they don’t!
@FrankLuntz @Julio_Rosas11So the story was accurately reported but media outlets should have cast doubts on the reports (inserting opinion/judgement) instead of simply reporting what was being investigated?
When I said there is evidence that hate crimes are being committed in Trump’s name here is just one example of two men who cited him and repeated his rhetoric after urinating on a homeless man’s face and beating him with a pipe because he was “mexican” https://t.co/LDPF0JfxqL
@FrankLuntz @Julio_Rosas11news outlets did not assign truth to his statement, they correctly reported it as a claim which is what journalism is. they reported it as being investigated which it was! the examples of reputable news outlets that you’re quoting in your tweet all reported a claim, not a fact.
Two people ran the president's campaign. One of them just mocked the harrowing trauma experienced by a ten-year-old girl with down syndrome being forcibly taken from her parents. The other one is in jail. This tells us absolutely everything.
Never forget that Republicans made a survivor of sexual violence risk her life to tell every detail of the most traumatic day of her life for a pretend hearing so that they could confirm the man who assaulted her.
