Apparently she never tweeted the fact she couldn’t confirm the main allegation in the article

Apparently she is scum. I say apparently because the only thing I watch on Fox (AKA Paul Ryan network) is Tucker. I’ve seen her in the past - a full on neocon warmonger. But haven’t watched anything on Fox xcept Tucker for many months, and that won’t change.

Isn’t that nice. She should give an apology to our President in both social media and tv. Thought she was a competent reporter. Guess not.

She is scum and confirmed nothing. Names, or it never happened.

You can verify that someone said Trump said something.

Doesn’t mean it really happened.

Last paragraphs of Breitbart expose:

But Griffin said (to Bret Baier) she could not confirm “the most salacious” part of the Atlantic report, which claimed that Trump had called World War I solders buried at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris “losers” and “suckers.”

Notably, Griffin did not tweet that she had failed to confirm the headline claim of the Atlantic piece, which was titled: “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’.”

Real journalism is dead in America.

So let me try to write something that passes for journalism these days:

Evidently Jennifer Griffin never actually beat a puppy to death with a baseball bat. However, an anonymous source told somebody who told me that Griffin apparently took a drunken swing at a puppy, but missed.

Where do I go to collect my Pulitzer Prize?

Tell me. How does one confirm and anonymous report?

The Breitbart author of this expose, Joel Pollack, is I think a Harvard Law grad. More I Q than Griffin and Baier added together and squared.

Bolton said it never happened and he hates Trump so it is most likely another fired employee making stuff up.

Hmmm. Story perfectly timed with Biden’s emergence from his basement.

Botched story will result in more Trump votes. They never learn to avoid Rope-a-Dope.

Those “Boycott Fox” calls are starting to make more sense to me. Maybe Tucker should start his own network.

So she “confirmed” the anonymously sourced story, which Bolton, an actual witness, denies.

This says more about FOX than Trump.

That is intentional deception and textbook gaslighting. She should be fired.

I caught a minute of Fox and Friends this morning.

The Jedediah chick was arguing that even though the story is without sources it could still be true so you can’t dismiss it.

This bubblehead kept saying that since President Trump has said bad things about McCain in the past then he MIGHT have said some bad things about the military people now.

She was using the FAKE BUT ACCURATE argument.

She didn’t confirm anything. She stated she heard similar anonymous rumors and gossip. That’s all.
