NBC News tweeting a story that is in part about President Trumpâs response to the latest filing from the Mueller investigation isnât sitting well with Democrat Sen. Brian Schatz:
Dear NBC, you are doing it again. This is not some minor media criticism or partisan complaint. You have become a vector for an obviously lie. You seriously have to cut it out. https://t.co/AaqOlHeWUG

So is he accusing a media outlet of pushing âfake newsâ or something?
For some reason itâs okay for this politician to criticize the media. No pearl-clutching over âassaults on a free pressâ

âWeirdâ is right! As usual, itâs only OK when a Democrat does it.
We must stop these irresponsible press outlets from
quoting people accurately, without editorial comment https://t.co/dnsQHGbzfr

Why do you hate freedom of the press, Senator?

And it wasnât just Sen. Schatz â there was an avalanche of criticism for NBC News by many who would much rather get back to slamming Trump for daring to question the mediaâs methods.
