First, a word of explanation. I live in Virginia. The "premier conservative blog" in Virginia is The Bull Elephant (TBE) -- not this one, but the other one. I was banned from TBE because I posted facts that destroyed their lies, misrepresentations, and nonsense. Like Republicans everywhere, they cannot stand to be shown as liars, so, they hid their heads in the sand and banned me.
They are at it again. Here's the opening paragraph from an article on TBE today, Jan 22.
With a robust wag of the finger, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer rebuked the press corps Saturday for their manipulation of the inauguration attendance and an alleged removal of a MLK bust from the White House. Not that I particularly enjoy watching an administration lower themselves to their level. Know how the left gets into full-metal meltdown over people refuting climate data and even calls them “Science Deniers?” This is how I look at anyone who still denies media bias. I would say never in history has there been such staking of sympathy toward preferred political world views, but sadly I would be wrong.
So the clown who wrote this nonsense is supporting Trump's press secretary for rebuking the press corps for "manipulating" reporting on the crowd size at the inauguration. Here are the facts:
- The crowd at Trump's inauguration was dwarfed by the crowd the next day at the Women's March.
- The crowd at Trump's inauguration was one of the smallest in the past two decades.
- There were vast areas of empty seats and empty crowd space at the Trump inauguration.
- All one needs to do is use Google to check out the crowd size that the inauguration versus the crowd at the Women's March.
The press reported factually. Here's a news flash for TBE, Trump, and Trump's press secretary: Get over it.
Meanwhile, one of Trump's spokespeople appeared on CNN today and said, no, they are not lying, they are simply citing "alternative facts." God help us.
