Lock Them Up: Media Runs #FakeNews All Night and Morning, Claiming Jeff Sessions Chanted "Lock Her Up" In Turning Point Speech


I've said it before and I will say it again: If you DO NOT want to be called fake news then DO NOT put out FAKE NEWS.

I cannot stand Attorney General Jeff Sessions and there is so much you can use against him that you don't have to make up stuff! The MSM splattered across their pages that he joined in the "lock her up" chant that broke out during his summit.

He did not do this.

He didn't chant it. When he recognized what they were chanting, he said "Lock her up," the former to himself, in recognition, and then said, "I heard that for a long time during the campaign," and then went back to his speech.

But the lying media reported all night and morning that he "joined in the chant" or "chanted." Legal Insurrection has the screencaps of all the #FakeNews. They later began changing the headlines to better accord with reality -- or their "This is an apple" version of reality, anyway -- but did not note that their earlier reports were #FakeNews.

Lock Them Up! Lock Them Up! Lock Them Up!

I'd like to hear that chanted at the media.

In other #FakeNews: Rachel Maddow, the Queen (?) of Conspiracies, says she finally has the proof of treason:

Trouble is, this native Russian speaker says that that's not what was said at all. Because there were multiple voices on the translator channel, and the first words translated were not "Yes I did" but "Because."

All of the rabid left and NeverTrump left (let's face it, they're on the left now) are telling her that That must be untrue because they can read the English chyrons and the English chyrons say "Yes I did." They don't seem to understand that she is telling them the actual Russian words Putin spoke. They just keep insisting that the starting catcher must be right, and it doesn't matter what a So-Called Expert in What Russian Words Actually Mean says.

Because they're so smart.

Even the Washington Post agrees, if you can believe that:

Not only was this question not "buried," the Post notes, but Maddow's claim that Putin answered "yes I did" to the question about whether Putin wanted Trump to win is wrong.

She also noted that the White House's written transcript also excludes the question. Here's what that transcript says.

PUTIN: Options abound, and they all can be found in an appropriate legal framework.

REPORTER: And did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?

PUTIN: (As interpreted.) Yes, I did. Yes, I did. Because he talked about bringing the U.S.-Russia relationship back to normal.

Here's the thing: Thatís also how The Post's transcript of the news conference initially read, too. Ours came from Bloomberg Government and ours, too, excluded the first part of the reporters question in which he begins, "President Putin, did you want President Trump to win the election".

What happened? If you watch the videos, it's pretty clear. At some point in the middle of that question, there's a switch between the feed from the reporters and the feed from the translator. In the White House version of the video, you can hear the question being asked very faintly under the woman who is translating saying "president."

They say that while the provincial, non-cosmpotalitan jingoistic American bigot Maddow is focusing only on the American man asking Putin a question, in fact, a Russian woman began asking a question, and that is what the translator began translating, and what Putin answered. Her question, not his.

Note that while the Washington Post admits Maddow is wrong here, that's all it will do. She has pushed one #FakeNews conspiracy theory after another, and they never, ever call her on this.

She's MSNBC's own gender-ambiguous Alex Jones, but the left is allowed to traffic in conspiracy theories, because the left (get this) enjoys the left's conspiracy theories. Even when they're blatantly false, they still help gin up the base, and they're at least fun to pretend that they represent reality.

See Instapundit for good media quotes, which are claiming, basically, that Trump is lying by denying their own lies and delusions, and this is causing them harm, because their lies and delusions are very important to them.
