ABCFakeNews "Reporter" Terry Moran: It's Okay for Buzzfeed to Publish Lies About Trump Because Trump Spread Lies About Obama's Birth Certificate

Nuance.

ABC News reporter Terry Moran suggested Wednesday that it's okay for news outlets to report uncorroborated allegations from a single, anonymous source about President-elect Donald Trump because he did the same thing when he alleged in 2012 that Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States.

[Terry Moran's tweets on this subject omitted; hit the link to see them]


So to parse his line of reasoning, Moran is covering BuzzFeed's malfeasance by suggesting journalists aren't obligated to publish only the truth that can be verified if the person who they’re covering has also spread untrue information. In other words: Donald Trump spreads falsehoods, so we can do the same about him!

The National Laughingstock's Fake News "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler also thought to excuse the media by talking up Trump's Birtherism.

Oh: Formerly relevant writer from the 80s (or writer in his 80s, whichever) and current retard Stephen King says pretty much the same thing.
