After Widely Promoting Three False Anti-Trump Stories in Less than Two Weeks, MSM Can't Understand Why People Think They're Biased

Jusie Smollett being interviewed

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the timespan of less than two weeks, there were three separate unconfirmed anti-Trump news stories, where virtually all main-stream media (MSM) outlets pounced and broadcast them without first verifying the details. All three of these stories ended up being false. Now MSM spokespeople are worried that people might jump to the false conclusion that the MSM is biased.

On January 17th there was the false story saying that the Mueller investigation had documents proving that Trump told Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

On January 19th there was the false story that a group of boys wearing MAGA hats instigated a confrontation with a a group of native Americans at the Lincoln Memorial.

On January 29th there was the false story that Jussie Smollett was beaten up and doused him with bleach by two white men who yelled, "This is MAGA country!" Now it appears the whole attack was faked.

After three such incidents in such a short period of time, MSM spokespeople are confused why some people might "jump to the conclusion" that the MSM is biased.

"The MSM is not biased," said CNN's chief media correspondent Brian Stelter. "So virtually all the MSM uncritically broadcast anti-Trump stories that later turned out to be false, and did this three separate times in less than two weeks. So what? That still doesn't mean we're biased."

When asked if he can remember an instance where the MSM made a similar mistake that made Trump look good, Stelter replied, "That's not a fair comparison...we never broadcast stories that make Trump look good."
