So-called “journalist” Michael Schmidt of the New York Times, who reported the “smoking gun” memo that James Comey allegedly wrote about a conversation between himself and Donald Trump, told MSNBC’s Brian Williams that he has not actually seen the memo.
Not that it really matter if he did, since what was reported to be in the memo is a lot of nothing.
Schmidt told Williams, “Someone that had seen [the memo] had recounted details to me.”
New York Times Mexican telecom mogul Carlos Slim’s blogger Michael Schmidt told professional liar Brian Williams that he hadn’t seen the memos that James Comey allegedly wrote. “Someone that had seen them recounted details to me,” Schmidt said in what is a breach of journalistic protocol.
Schmidt has been called out for getting a story wildly wrong before thanks to his anonymous sources. Schmidt, citing his anonymous federal law enforcement sources, claimed that one of the San Bernardino terrorists had talked about jihad openly. She didn’t.
His boss even reprimanded him and called for “systematic changes” to the way Schmidt and Carlos Slim’s blog use anonymous sources.
In fact GotNews.com first broke that the San Bernardino attacks were terrorism.
We guess our anonymous sources are better than the Times.
Schmidt’s open admissions on MSNBC confirm GotNews reporting Wednesday that Schmidt hasn’t in fact seen the relevant Comey documents.
