A Quick Test Of Your Knowledge

Here's a quick quiz that's particularly appropriate given the uproar over recent statements.

Who is it who said the following:  “For years, ... media outlets have just been pumping out all kinds of toxic, crazy stuff.”

When was the statement made?

Here are your choices:

1.  Whoopi Goldberg on The View in 2014.

2.  Donald Trump at a rally in Indiana in July 2016.

3.  Barack Obama at a campaign rally in October 2016.

4.  Harry Reid on the floor of the Senate in April of 2015.

5.  Steve Bannon on in June of 2016.

So who did you choose as the person accusing the media of pushing "toxic, crazy stuff"?

The correct answer is 3.  President Obama made the statement less than two weeks before the November 2016 election when he was out campaigning for Hillary Clinton.  Obama attacked the media and no one paid much attention.

Keep that in mind as you read the wails and screams from the media because President Trump has pointed out that they public dishonest phony stories.  Maybe you can figure out why calling it Fake News is worse than calling it "toxic, crazy" news.  The answer is simple:  Trump has an R after his name rather than a D.
