“Adjectives abound and mainstream media’s reporting of the unexpected January 6 hearing this week, bringing you what’s ignored sensationalized, misleading or just plain false. Here’s your media malfeasance for the last week of June.” – Kristi Leigh
Well, MSM certainly sensationalized Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony on Tuesday. They ignored the lack of cross-examination and brushed their favorite word debunked aside. At a time when that word might have been best used. Shortly after Hutchinson’s heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend Trump’s been messing around testimony. The Secret Service sources were quick to contradict. NBC News Chief White House correspondent Peter Alexander had this to say “A source close to the Secret Service tells me both Bobby Engle, the lead agent, and the Presidential limousine/SUV driver are prepared to testify under oath that neither man was assaulted and that Mr. Trump never lunged for the steering wheel.” – Kristi Leigh
“Now, despite that Snopes wants to make sure you believe that the Secret Service did not debunk Hutchinson’s testimony. Strange because the article itself points out that both Ornato and Engel have appeared before the Committee on the record and behind closed doors at the committee’s request. Those sessions were recorded, but not used in Tuesday’s hearing. I wonder why. The article also points out “(Note: Hutchinson referred to the presidential limousine known as “The Beast.” However, Trump rode in a suburban that day.)
But wait, there’s more. ABC News says Hutchinson testified she wrote a note dictated by Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows, but former Trump White House lawyer Eric Hirshman is claiming that note regarding a potential statement for then-President Donald Trump was written by him. With all of these inconsistencies wouldn’t the public have been better served to have fact-checking articles on Hutchinson’s testimony? With such a devastating recounting of January 6, what did she actually say clearly? ” – Kristi Leigh
