Consider the departure of Corey Lewandowski as campaign manager. Cilliza was ecstatic, writing:
Donald Trump fired campaign manager Corey Lewandowski on Monday after months of tensions between Lewandowski and Trump convention manager Paul Manafort. The move reportedly came at the urging of Trump's children -- most notably his daughter, Ivanka. Lewandowski sat down with CNN's Dana Bash for an interview on Monday after his dismissal. It's was, um, a bizarre conversation in which Lewandowski repeatedly suggested everything was going awesomely! and praised Trump time and time again.Cillizza's headline read:
According to the transcript Cillizza posted, Lewandowski did not say "everything is awesome." Not once.
Nor did he say awesomely or awesome repeatedly; again he did not say it even once.
The only person who said awesomely was Chris Cillizza.
It was an awesomely bad post.
And like the rest of media, the Washington Post missed the real story -- that after hiring Manafort, Trump had let Lewandowski keep his position until he could find another job. Days after the two parted company, CNN hired him.
The Washington Post was livid:
Fields told me Tuesday that the aftermath of her filing charges against Lewandowski resulted in death threats from Trump supporters, threats that were also delivered through her mother and brothers, who were told how many hours she had left to live if she didn’t drop the charges.
The 28-year-old, now a contributing reporter at Huffington Post after resigning from Breitbart, said she continues to be targeted by Trump’s army of supporters, and described what happened as “a nightmare that won’t end.”
“I was disappointed and shocked,” to hear of CNN’s move, she said. “A regular person couldn’t even get a job at McDonald’s after what he did.”
She added: “Come on, this is CNN! They call themselves the most trusted name in news.”When it comes to Trump, there's always an orgy of anger at the post. And omissions. The prosecutor dropped the case after video vindicated Lewandowski.
Finally, there was this from the Washington Post:
Cheer up, Posties. Trump will not be nominated. Cillizza has the chart.
