Exclusive: Washington Post Paid to Run #FakeNews by Clinton CGI Donor

Anyone who reads a report from The Washington Post notices there’s an unmistakable flavor of anti-Trump bias within its stories.
American Lens has confirmed with multiple reputable inside sources that The Washington Post is being paid a “significant” sum of money by a donor with ties to the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) to run disparaging reports on President Trump and the Republican-led Congress.
Multiple sources within the organization have come forward to state that a significant amount of money is being spent by the paper to run anything it can find against President Trump whether it is true, or not. They further confirmed that Hillary Clinton is a long-time friend of the contributor in question.
Executives at the post have mandated each edition of the paper must contain negative Trump reporting. This has led to “a deep mistrust” by many of the journalists in the organization another source said. “No one can tell the lies from the truth anymore,” our source confirms.
Democracy Dying
“The climate of hyper-partisanship has made some of our journalists regret their decision to stay with the paper,” said a senior staffer. “It’s like a bad smell you can’t wash off, nobody wants to be around you and no one will hire you away.”
The Washington Post is engaging in overt malice,” said another source familiar with the matter, “it’s as if The Post is pursuing and rooting for America’s failure.”
 “Trust within the paper is at an all-time low,” said another source.
This revelation comes as The Post ran another report on Monday, citing an unprovable source about national secrets being revealed to the Russian Federation by President Trump.
“Many journalists within the organization are doubting the credibility of these leaks, the innuendo they convey, and they are placing every journalist at risk who works for the paper,” said one insider.
To add insult to Fake News injury, buried several paragraphs in The Washington Post admits that even if the claims are true – and that’s looking like a weak IF –  the President has the authority to share such information.
“As president, Trump has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosures broke the law.”
One of the only named sources in The Post article who actually attended the meeting with the Russian Foreign Minister and Ambassador was National Security Adviser, Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.
McMaster blasted The Post’s report as “false” and told media in a press conference that, “I was in the room, it didn’t happen.”

American Lens has withheld the names of our sources just as The Washington Post has from its stories.
We encourage The Washington Post to take an honest and accurate assessment of its current direction and review the sacred trust of journalism. The entire news profession is greater than the egos of the Post, its owner, editors, and journalists.
