This story might just make you blow a gasket.
It’s literally stunning what media is trying to pass off as responsible journalism.
But let’s set the stage with this good recitation by OAN’s Liz Wheeler of where we are in the media crazy over the Comey memo.

Now to the meat of the problem.
Listen carefully to this video and see if you pick it up.
Here’s Brian Williams interviewing Michael Schmidt, one of the New York Times reporters who wrote about the ‘Comey memo’ that Trump had supposedly made the comment “I hope you can let Flynn go.”

Did you get it?
Williams asks, “Why is it that the Times has the story, but not the memo?”
Schmidt, talking about the memo/s says, “and someone who had seen them recounted details to me.”
So wait, not only hasn’t he, Schmidt, even seen the memos. But the person he’s talking with doesn’t even have them. That person is ‘recounting details’ that he remembers.
Are you kidding me? This is due diligence? This is journalism? This is what has people screaming impeachment?
This is media saying anything, using anything they feel like, reliable or not, real or not for serving their agenda.
As Jason Chaffetz says produce the memo. Or shut up.
Until you do, there is nothing but three degrees of hearsay going on here….
