News Or Opinion: Reuters Says ‘Without Evidence’ About Trump Tweet On Hillary

Written by Wes Walker on August 29, 2018

With fewer reporters and greater reliance on Press Pools for news sources, you would hope for professional objectivity in the coverage, wouldn’t you? Would you call this ‘objective’?

In response to a news story about China having gained access to Hillary’s email, Trump fired off a tweet.

The next day, a Reuters headline reacted to that tweet.

Here are the Tweets in question:

Here was Reuters in response.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Twitter early on Wednesday China hacked the emails of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton but did not offer any evidence or further information.

That cynicism was echoed in the headline.

Trump, without evidence, blames China for hacking Clinton emails

Apparently, in Journalism land, there is no such thing as a web search. You’d think they would have at least heard of Google, what with the hard tilt they seem to have toward left-leaning articles.

To anyone whose head wasn’t planted firmly between both cheeks, this would be an easy thing to figure out. We covered the story here.

Confirmed: China Has A Copy Of Hillary’s Classified Emails … And Strzok Knew About It!

The story that originally reported it included names, dates, and a reference to a judicial hearing.

The Chinese wrote code that was embedded in the server, which was kept in Clinton’s residence in upstate New York. The code generated an instant “courtesy copy” for nearly all of her emails and forwarded them to the Chinese company, according to the sources.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found that virtually all of Clinton’s emails were sent to a “foreign entity,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, said at a July 12 House Committee on the Judiciary hearing. He did not reveal the entity’s identity, but said it was unrelated to Russia.

Two officials with the ICIG, investigator Frank Rucker and attorney Janette McMillan, met repeatedly with FBI officials to warn them of the Chinese intrusion, according to a former intelligence officer with expertise in cybersecurity issues, who was briefed on the matter. He spoke anonymously, as he was not authorized to publicly address the Chinese’s role with Clinton’s server.

Among those FBI officials was Peter Strzok, who was then the bureau’s top counterintelligence official.

So we’ve got a news story citing the names of the agency, and two of its officials, one Congressman, The FBI official, Peter Strzok, and the date of the House committee on the Judiciary hearing.

If he were citing some of CNN’s anonymous sources, like Lanny Davis, it would be a ‘valid’ story.

But Trump’s reference to a fairly widely-reported news story with some actual names and date?

That’s described — in a headline — with the words ‘Without Evidence’.

Is that an editorial, or a news story?

Sites like ours are up-front about our political leanings. But they are supposed to be ‘the professionals’.

Can you imagine that people actually accuse the Media(D) of being biased?

What Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow and the Rest of The Media (D) STILL haven’t figured out yet is why we call them ‘Fake News’.

Let’s spell it out for them. In a shirt.

Because you know they won’t be able to figure it out on their own.

The problem isn’t just the lies they tell…

It’s the truth they DON’T tell…

And the opinions laced right through them.

It’s propaganda:
