ABC News apologies make covering Trump ever tougher

The “A” in ABC now stands for “apology.”

Just as the alphabet network’s news division was high-fiving itself about landing the first Oval Office interview ith President Donald Trump, ABC found itself in the awkward position of issuing several public apologies related to its coverage.

The timing of the mea culpas couldn’t be worse — journalists everywhere are fighting accusations by White House and Trump supporters that the mainstream media is dishonest and spreads “fake news.”

The first blow came late Tuesday when executives at ABC News apologized for a misleading edit of a quote from former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer — that portrayed him as being harshly critical of President Trump's press secretary Sean Spicer.

Trump told the Associated Press when he did not pick them first, "I don't owe you anything" The mainstream media are losing viewers and readers. They know the public are looking to alternative media, your sbynews, the Drudge Report, and others for the news. They are now in damage control. Finally have a president who isn't afraid of confrontation and won't back down. It's about time!!!! I totally love this president!!!!!!

CBS news also needs to issue an apology to all white males. Especially blue collar or non-college educated white males for their disparaging remarks concerning us during their election night coverage with Scott Pelley, and the other liberal aholes that did the coverage that night. It was certainly wonderful to see their confused expressions on their faces when they lost!!! One reporting stated, "we have a rebellion here" !!!
Since that night I stopped watching them and shot them an email to their website. I wasn't alone, there were thousands of comments like mine telling them what they thought of their nasty comments about "non college" educated white males!

And they call blog-sites 'fake news'. The media is the only institution people trust less than politicians and attorneys.
