JUST THINK OF THE MEDIA AS DEMOCRATIC PARTY OPERATIVES WITH BYLINES, AND IT ALL MAKES SENSE: What media/Dem coordination? Biden campaign has already held a press call about ‘appalling allegations’ in The Atlantic’s crumbling hit piece about Trump.

During a Friday morning interview on CNN, Jeffrey Goldberg, who wrote the story, defended using four anonymous sources with “firsthand knowledge” who claimed that Trump called dead soldiers “losers” and dead Marines “suckers.” The report has been denied by several current and former members of the administration who were on the trip during which the president allegedly made the remarks.

“They don’t want to be inundated with angry tweets and all the rest. And we push hard, and that’s why you have to sort of do this reporting with even more belt-and-suspenders approach. You know, dotted i’s and crossed t’s and find multiple sources for it,” he explained on New Day.

Vietnam. Iraq. Afghanistan. Bad Twitter ratios. One of these things is not like the other, and as usual, an awfully chickenshit excuse from Goldberg.
