Newt Gingrich has called the 'bombshell reports' from the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal "garbage".
From The Blaze:
A very combative Newt Gingrich assailed the reputations of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal over their bombshell reports that have landed squarely on the Trump campaign for a week. He made the comments Friday on Fox News.
“They’re garbage,” he said. “The fact that this city is fascinated with garbage is a sad commentary. I’m with General Keene. Here you have a president going to a historic meeting with over twenty Arab leaders, but the story is no sources, no names, in either the New York Times, or the Washington Post, none.”
“And yet these are ‘bombshells.’ No they’re not,” he said. “They’re just more of the left-wing hatred for [President] Trump.”
“Trump was clear on CBS News,” he continued, “he told Lester Holt, he wanted to fire Comey. He thinks Comey was irresponsible. Y’know, now you have a leak that says, ‘gosh, Trump actually meant what he said on CBS.’ This stuff is just – all of this is done by the left.”
“There’s a Harvard study out that shows there’s more media hostility to Donald Trump than any president in modern American history,” Gingrich added, “tonight’s another example. They could have said, ‘president leaves on historic trip to bring together the Arab world to fight terrorism.’ President leaves on historic trip to go to Israel and meet with both Palestinians and Jewish leaders. President goes on historic trip to meet the Pope. Oh no! They come up with garbage in order to smear the president as he leaves the country.”
“I think it’s disgusting, and I think it’s really sad that the Washington Post and the New York Times have ceased to be newspapers and purely become left-wing propaganda instruments.”
