Now this wouldn’t be directed at President Trump now would it? “Of course not!” claims the Post.
And they act surprised and appalled that people see bias in the media.
From the Washington Examiner:
The Washington Post denied Wednesday that its new slogan, “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” is a response to President Trump, who has called the collective news media an “enemy” of Americans.
The paper debuted its new slogan Tuesday night on its website, just below the masthead.
“This is actually something we’ve said internally for a long time in speaking about our mission,” Kris Coratti, a spokeswoman for the paper, told the Washington Examiner on Wednesday.
A whistleblower in the Atlanta office of the Department of Veterans Affairs warned President Trump on Tuesday that the VA is preparing to throw out hundreds of thousands of benefit applications due to an error the VA itself made during the Obama administration.
Scott Davis, a well-known whistleblower who has testified before Congress, wrote an open letter to Trump saying that more than 500,000 of these applications might be scuttled in March unless he intervenes.
“I am sending this whistleblower disclosure to your office due to the urgent need for executive intervention,” he wrote. “VA is planning on declaring over 500,000 Veteran applications for VA health care as incomplete and abandoned at the end of March 2017.”
