Press Watch: Why was Trump rushed to the hospital? Count on the media to swallow official lies

An unexpected hospital visit is legitimate news. But the White House lied, and the press corps just swallowed it

The complete inability of the political press corps to respond properly to even the most obvious deceptions emerging from the Trump White House has never been more evident than over the weekend, when Trump was rushed to Walter Reed hospital and his press office provided an explanation that was not remotely credible.

Yet despite knowing full well that the explanation was full of lies, our elite political reporters put those lies in their headlines and lead paragraphs, leaving their readers and viewers either duped or reduced to trying to discern the truth through some form of tea-leaf reading Kremlinology.

Is there no lie so blatant the Washington press corps will refuse to spread it? The question comes up almost daily.

On Monday morning, for instance, we were greeted with news alerts about Trumpís tweet in which he laughably and preposterously asserted that he was ďseriously consideringĒ testifying before the House Intelligence Committee. Thatís bunk.

1. Who wants "Colonoscopy Day" written on their public schedule?

HIPAA and all. He used the trip to drum up base sympathy. IMHO

2. Maybe he hurt himself during a tantrum...

like breaking a window or something and he won't come out of his room until he can ditch the bandages or whatever..? A cut or broken finger from punching something, maybe?
