Media cries Wolff again



On January 2018, Michael Wolff released his book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House." The media immediately hailed it as the book that would bring the Orange Man down.

After all, President Donald John Trump had threatened to stop its publication.

Then people read it and realized Wolff was lying.

Newsweek reported, "President Donald Trump and his circle aren’t the only officials calling parts of Michael Wolff’s new book on the early days of his administration fake news.

"Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Thursday said a story involving him in the book 'Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,' to be released Friday, is 'a complete fabrication, literally from beginning to end.'"

New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman told CNN, "I believe parts of it, and then there are other parts that are factually wrong. He believes in larger truths and narratives. So he creates a narrative that is notionally true, that’s conceptually true. The details are often wrong.

"Conceptually true"? Is that like the New York Times's "fake but accurate" excuse for Dan Rather forging a letter failed attempt to stop President Bush's re-election?

The lies were so blatant and wild that Atlantic monthly reported, "Fire and Fury Is Actually a Coup for Trump."

Nearly 18 months later, Wolff is about to birth a sequel, "Siege."

Bob Mueller already called him out on a lie in the new book.

The Guardian reported, "A new book from Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff says special counsel Robert Mueller drew up a three-count obstruction of justice indictment against Donald Trump before deciding to shelve it – an explosive claim which a spokesman for Mueller flatly denied."

Mueller.

Not the president. Not Kellyanne Conway. Not Sarah Sanders.

Mueller.

The Guardian -- which actually did do due diligence in its reporting -- said, "In an author’s note, Wolff states that his findings on the Mueller investigation are 'based on internal documents given to me by sources close to the Office of the Special Counsel.'

"But Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, told the Guardian: 'The documents that you’ve described do not exist.'"

Sometimes I ask myself, "Does the media want to be believed anymore?"

  2. Should be "due" diligence, otherwise spot on.

  5. When Larsen stopped appearing in the paper I was not happy, but it seems as if the paper is replacing Larsen with funny stories. I'll stick with Larsen.

  7. I keep hearing about this so-called “alt-right” and what a clear and present danger they pose to the Republic. Meanwhile, people swallow huge bucketsful of anti-Trump lies like this garbage and THAT’S not dangerous?

  8. Looks like this isn't the time of the Wolff, or even the Wolf. When I saw the headline I thought this column was going to be about Naomi Wolf, who got caught in a huge error in her new book in an interview; how embarrassing!

    Feminist Naomi Wolf, advisor to President Clinton & VP Al Gore, had claimed a lot of people were executed for sodomy in the 1800s in England; turns out she misunderstood, and none of those executions probably happened at all! The BBC interviewer nailed her on the spot!

    Those pesky facts again; always getting in the way of a good Leftie lie!
