On Saturday, The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway appeared on “FOX & Friends” where she discussed NBC News’ botched report on President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen being wiretapped by federal investigators.
Hemingway noted that it seems as though all of the media’s “errors” go in one direction: they all make Trump look bad, NewsBusters reported.
“I think there are a couple of problems,” Hemingway said. “One is that the media keep using anonymous sources who keep getting things wrong, and there’s no accountability when you’re using anonymous sources. There’s no way you can say, ‘Well, I know I shouldn’t be trusting this person,’ because we don’t know the people who are involved.”
“The other issue is this sort of animosity toward Trump that make all the errors happen in one direction,” Hemingway continued. “This is not the first time there’s been a major correction on a story that’s really big, and they always go in this sort of anti-Trump direction. That suggests that it’s not just what happens sometimes in journalism, which sometimes stories get wrong.”
