“Let there be no more ‘sources’” cited in news stories, because fake news media “just make them up when they have none,” Pres. Trump declared on Friday.
“Let them say it to my face,” Trump challenged as he called on media to stop making up stories based on nonexistent confidential “sources” on Friday in an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C.
Hostile, “fake news” media are simply fabricating stories, then defending them by citing fictitious “sources,” Trump said, citing a recent example:
“A few days ago, I called the fake news the enemy of the people and they are, they are the enemy of the people. Because, they have no sources, they just make them up when there are none. I saw one story recently where they said nine people have confirmed, there are no nine people, I don’t believe there were one or two people, nine people. I said, give me a break, I know the people, I know who they talk to. There were no nine people. They say nine people. Somebody reads it and thinks nine people, they have nine sources. They make up sources. They are very dishonest people.”
Trump said that, if their charges are true, his accusers cited by the media should be willing to go on record and “Say it to my face.”
