The Mainstream Media, it's just like the Blindman teaching the Frankenstein Monster to Talk: Obama Lies, Good, Iranian Lies, Good, Trump Anything, Bad

Step into Catch 22. Major Major Major Major Garrett, who doesn't know better vs. James Rosen, who does! m/r

When lying about secret meetings was OK 

Exclusive: Jack Cashill spotlights Obama team prevaricating about talks with Iran

Jack Cashill Feb. 15, 2017
If you do not remember when American officials met secretly with an enemy – in this case, Iran – and lied about the meetings, you’re in good company.
The story the media eventually told, the New York Times conceded after the fact, “was largely manufactured for the purpose for (sic) selling the deal.”
Chief manufacturer was Obama aide Ben Rhodes, brother of CBS News honcho David Rhodes.
“The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old,” Rhodes told the Times, “and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.”
Rhodes’ assistant Ned Price laughingly added that he fed the manufactured narrative to the media, “and the next thing I know, lots of these guys are in the dot-com publishing space, and have huge Twitter followings, and they’ll be putting this message out on their own.”
In February 2013, Fox News Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen, the same Rosen who had been singled out for NSA surveillance, wasn’t drinking the Kool-Aid.
