The mainstream media believes it has President Trump and his aides caught in a lie over allegations that former President Obama wiretapped Trump’s phones at Trump Tower during the campaign. Of course, they aren’t applying the same standards for themselves. Take for instance, New York Times columnist Michael S. Schmidt. Back in January, on the eve of Inauguration Day, Schmidt helped write a story all about how the Obama administration tapped Trump’s phones and intercepted communications in order to examine alleged Russian ties. Cut to March 4 — the day Trump posted he was wiretapped on Twitter — and the same Schmidt helped write another article negating his previous story: “Trump, Offering No Evidence, Says Obama Tapped His Phones.” The Lid’s Jeff Dunetz exposed this slight of hand and posted the picture above with the following remarks: This is the ultimate in liberal media bias. In January Michael S. Schmidt perpetuated the rumor that team Trump had Russian connections, and to support his point he said that Trump’s people were wiretapped. However when President Trump claimed his people were wiretapped, the same guy, Michael S. Schmidt said there was no evidence. Either the Times editors and Mr. Schmidt are trying to skew the story, or they are all suffering from a form of dementia and have no memory. This is rich coming from The Times whose current ad campaign screams, “The truth is more important now than ever.” I’m pretty sure the truth has forever been the most important thing, not just when there’s a president in office they don’t like. Schmidt is proving that “truth” for his paper can change on a monthly basis. But at least the NYT is living up to its other ad slogan: “The truth is hard to find,” because it certainly eludes them.
