Trump Lashes Out At 'FAKE NEWS' Washington Post Over Misleading Photo

Washington Post reporter apologizes for tweet on crowd size at Trump rally

After the President demanded an apology, the reporter responded promptly, tweeting directly to the President: "Sure thing". However, National Park Service photos showed that there were far less attendees than former president Barack Obama's inauguration attracted in 2009. Packed house, many people unable to get in. "While the president demanded he be fired, he is still with The Washington Post, and I want, with that, to apologize for my mistake". 'I deleted the photo after @dmartosko told me I'd gotten it wrong. "Was confused by the image of you walking in the bottom right corner".

But the president wasn't satisfied with Weigel's apology.

The Post reporter, David Weigel, had earlier tweeted a photo of the crowd gathered at Pensacola Bay Center for Trump's speech there Friday evening, showing numerous empty seats. The president slammed the post calling it "fake news".

Weigel, who is known for his humorous take to politics, tweeted back, "It was a bad tweet on my personal account, not a story for Washington Post".

This afternoon on Fox News, anchor Leland Vittert brought on talk radio host Jeff Katz to talk about a spate of recent corrections made by the mainstream media when it comes to the Trump administration. The date given for the email on the report, September 4, was actually ten days prior to the actual email's date, September 14: One day after the Wikileaks story went public.

The president's tweet comes after various journalists became targets of Trump and his supporters last week over a series of reporting errors. "Watch to see if @CNN fires those responsible, or was it just gross incompetence?" Everyone knows this is not true, that this could, in fact, be a fraud on the American Public.

The new information, CNN noted, "indicates that the communication is less significant than CNN initially reported". "Their slogan should be CNN, THE LEAST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS!"

CNN has said the reporters won't be disciplined because they didn't break any newsroom guidelines but received inaccurate information from sources.

"They took this fraudster from ABC they suspended him for a month", Trump continued, referring to ABC News reporter Brian Ross's erroneous report that Michael Flynn was directed to contact Russian officials during the campaign.
