Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein issued a stunning statement Thursday night that appears to be a rebuke of news agencies spreading fake news via fake leaks, namely those from The Washington Post, CNN and the NY Times.
The statement said Americans should think twice “before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials.’”
“Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials’,” the statement read, “particularly when they do not identify the country — let alone the branch or agency of government — with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated. Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations. The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations.”
Rosenstein is clearly slamming fake news but the media immediately came out to twist his meaning.
