Now That They Don't Need 'Access', Media Admits Trump Lied

With a quick succession of headlines last week, the New York Times quietly unveiled a new chapter in its Trump coverage — the paper was suddenly calling out his lies. “In Turning on Liz Cheney, G.O.P. Bows to Trump’s Election Lies,” a Times headline read. The next day, the Times published, “Cheney’s Replacement Repeats Trumps Lies as Party Looks Ahead.” (In a nostalgic twist, the online headline for that article referred to “False Claims.”) And the following day, a print subhead for a front-page Times article read, “Party Is Banking On Pushing Elections Lies.” The good news: Beltway journalists no longer seeking access to the Trump White House are now detailing his “lies” in news coverage: • “The 15 Most Notable Lies of Donald Trump’s Presidency” (CNN) • “Legacy of Lies — How Trump Weaponized Mistruths During His Presidency” (ABC News) Yesterday, the Associated Press reported, “Allegiance to a lie has become a test of loyalty to Donald Trump and a means of self-preservation for Republicans.”
