When a group of media outlets come out with the same story theme on Trump it’s ‘coincidence’?

When a group of media outlets come out with the same story theme of Trump lies it just has to be a coincidence. That’s what the New York Times, LA Times and other newspapers would have you believe. It has nothing to do with a preemptive strike. Right. The fact that they follow the talking points from the Clinton staff is proof enough that they are in the bag for Hillary. 

As Written By Larry O’Connor for Hot Air:

Over the weekend, several major American newspapers printed a variation of the same article pointing out instances, in their view, when Donald Trump has lied to the American people during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The New York Times started the chain reaction on Saturday: “A Week of Whoppers”

Then, the LA Times, Washington Post and Politico followed suit.

As CNN media analyst Brian Stelter points out, the publications claim the timing was a coincidence:

Several of the editors who were involved said the timing was a coincidence. But there was clearly a desire to publish stories before Monday’s debate, when Trump and Clinton’s truthfulness will surely be at issue.

“Never in modern presidential politics has a major candidate made false statements as routinely as Trump has,” the L.A. Times declared on page one of Sunday’s paper.

Politico Magazine’s team analyzed every statement made by both Trump and Clinton for five days and said “the conclusion is inescapable: Trump’s mishandling of facts and propensity for exaggeration so greatly exceed Clinton’s as to make the comparison almost ludicrous.”

Stelter’s sources also claimed there was no coordination with the Clinton campaign:

The four stories were welcomed by the Clinton campaign; aides cited the statistics in television interviews on Sunday.  However, there is no indication that the Clinton campaign was involved.

Marty Baron, the executive editor of The Washington Post, said the timing of the stories was a coincidence.  “We don’t coordinate coverage with anyone else,” Baron said.

So the weekend before the first presidential debate, four major news publications all print the same story, the content and tone of which (calling out one candidate over the other as a serial liar) Stelter concedes is “extraordinary,” and it’s all just a “coincidence” with no …

    Hillary gets a pass from the liberal owned press, Trump is on his own and fair game for “hit and run journalism” – dump a story in the headlines, the truth comes out in the next day or so, the update is ignored……Will any of the press mention Hillary’s earpiece that watchers saw on large screen TVs tonight? There is a certain bias in the press: Senior Deputy Political Editor Mark Murray is married to Obama appointee Sasha Johnson (who also worked for CNN), who is chief of staff at the FAA.
    ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.
    CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications and is an Advisor on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran.
    ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney
    ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary
    ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood
    CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides

    When I saw him on TV, in the first minute I said, that Allen is a soldier. Sure enough.
    First time at this site but I really like it.

    Bookmarked. I will try to add and not detract from the discussions here.

    The media attacks Trump? Oh say it isn’t so!!! I can’t believe that the media would be so biased like that. Its almost like they’re owned by liberal big money douchebags that expect continuous favors from the dementocraps. But that can’t be the case can it? Fcking liars and hypocritical asshats. There is no integrity in journalism today.
