Why we can’t trust the media as the media once again blows an important story!
From Red State April 30, 2019
Buried in the Post report and absent from the headline is this pretty important line way down in the body.
“When Barr pressed him whether he thought Barr’s letter was inaccurate, Mueller said he did not, but felt that the media coverage of the letter was misinterpreting the investigation, officials said.”
In other words, Barr pushed back on Mueller’s silly complaints and got him to admit that Barr hadn’t misrepresented anything. Then we see Mueller fold and say he’s actually just upset with the media for misrepresenting the matter.

I can see why the WaPo would want to avoid headlining this “Mueller conceded Barr’s letter was accurate, criticized the media coverage.”1526:35 PM – Apr 30, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy58 people are talking about thisView image on Twitter
After 22 months of not giving a shit about the media running rampant w/ speculation, Mueller finally took a stand on the issue after Barr released his letter. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/mueller-complained-that-barrs-letter-did-not-capture-context-of-trump-probe/2019/04/30/d3c8fdb6-6b7b-11e9-a66d-a82d3f3d96d5_story.html?utm_term=.05ae03bc8d7d …6937:01 PM – Apr 30, 2019445 people are talking about thisTwitter Ads info and privacy
Barr doesn’t play games and that’s why he’s so good at his job. Could you imagine Jeff Sessions ever standing up to Mueller like that and calling him on his nonsense? Of course you couldn’t because he’d never do so.
Meanwhile, the media talking heads on the left are reacting as expected.

That’s literally the opposite of what the Post report actually says, but MSNBC is gonna MSNBC.
Frankly, I’m kind of enjoying the freaking out at this point. These people are always in the process of losing their minds and it’s decent entertainment. Barr should continue to play hardball with Congress and tell the media to pound sand on their complaints.
