After it was reported Rex Tillerson was out as secretary of state, many in the media and Dems like Nancy Pelosi did a fast flip-flop. The Dem narrative when Trump brought Tillerson on board was that it was more proof of Russia collusion. Now that Tillerson’s out, Dems are saying Trump made the move because Tillerson was being too tough on Russia. ABC News’ chief foreign correspondent helped push the new Dem spin on that story:
Tillerson stood by the Brits 100 pecent against Russia. That's why he got fired–because Trump won't.

Not that the Dems needed any more help from the media, but we’re sure they’ll appreciate this effort anyway:
Thanks for reporting the ‘Why’ of the story. What’s your source, because you certainly wouldn’t report personal speculation as fact.

You’re a ‘reporter.’ Please feel free to report to me the facts that back up this opinion. Jesus, journalists this shouldn’t be this damn hard: collect facts, write a story at about the 8th grade level and let the audience draw they own conclusions. Stop editorializing https://t.co/AAeWDGEXe7

It’s too bad the media gives people so many reasons to put the name of their job in sarcastic quotes.
