A media lie that spread like wildfire

Mike Reed - May 17, 2018

Yesterday, Fresno County California Sheriff Margaret Mims expressed frustration to President Trump over her inability to crack down on violent illegal immigrant gang members because of California’s new sanctuary state laws.

Sheriff Mims concluded her remarks saying, “There can be an MS-13 gang member I know about, if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about them.”

In responding, President Trump referred to MS-13 gang members as “animals” and pledged to continue to remove them from the country as fast as possible.  

But if you picked up a newspaper this morning, you’d be reading a far different story. What you would be reading is that President Trump called all immigrants “animals.”

It’s not just a few left-leaning publications that wrongly reported the President’s statement, it’s nearly every major outlet.

To call out just a few….

The Associated Press and USA Today wrongly stated the President referred to all undocumented immigrants as “animals.” (The AP is now in the process of correcting it 15 hours later)

The Washington Post ran with: President Trump called all immigrants “animals.” 

CBS, Politico, and the New York Times misleadingly wrote that the “animals” comment was about “some undocumented immigrants.” 

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell claimed the “animals” remark was about “people trying to get into the country.” 

Of course, Democrat leadership was quick to spread the lie as well…

Public trust in the media is at an all-time low.  With examples like this, it’s not hard to understand why.
