*Trump Mocked for Calling Anonymous Sources 'Fiction' Hours After Sharing
Story With Anonymous Sources*
by Harriet Sinclair
8/29/18

Another day, another Twitter mishap for President Donald Trump, who was
roundly ridiculed for slamming anonymous sources just hours after he
shared a story based on anonymous sources himself.

The president on Wednesday told his social media followers not to read
stories citing anonymous sources, claiming that was an indicator of â
�œfake news,”appearing not to realize that an earlier story he had
posted to Twitter depended almost entirely on anonymous sources.

“Anonymous Sources are really starting to BURN the media. @FoxNews The
fact is that many anonymous sources don’t even exist. They are fiction
made up by the Fake News reporters. Look at the lie that Fake CNN is now
in. They got caught red handed! Enemy of the People!” the president
wrote.

“When you see “anonymous source,” stop reading the story, it is
fiction!” he added.

The fact is that many anonymous sources don’t even exist. They are
fiction made up by the Fake News reporters. Look at the lie that Fake CNN
is now in. They got caught red handed! Enemy of the People!

But his comments came shortly after he had shared information from a Daily
Caller report that accused China of having hacked Hillary Clinton’s
emails and, in a late-night tweet on Tuesday, suggested that the
Department of Justice should investigate the allegations
[https://www.newsweek.com/trump-accuses-china-hacking-hillary-clinton-
emails-after-daily-caller-1094334].

“Hillary Clinton’s Emails, many of which are Classified Information,
got hacked by China. Next move better be by the FBI & DOJ or, after all of
their other missteps (Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Ohr, FISA, Dirty
Dossier etc.), their credibility will be forever gone! ” the president
wrote on Tuesday evening.

Earlier he had said of the story: “Report just out: ‘China hacked
Hillary Clinton’s private Email Server.’ Are they sure it wasn’t
Russia (just kidding!)? What are the odds that the FBI and DOJ are right
on top of this? Actually, a very big story. Much classified information!â


The catch? The allegations in the report from the Daily Caller came from
anonymous sources, which the publication identified as “two sources
briefed on the matter.”

Eagle-eyed Twitter users were quick to point out the president’s double
standard, with a reporter also commenting that Trump’s White House
conducted many briefings “on background where reporters must agree not
to identify sources by name.”

Uh, but wait your China hacking Hillary story was a Daily Caller report
from anonymous sources. Hold yourself to the standard you hold everyone
else just once in your life!

Just like the sources who told you Obama wasn’t born in the US or the
ones who told you about the 3-5 million illegal votes? Or like the ones
who told Tucker about the white South African Farmers? Sources like that?

Doesn't mention that many WH briefings are conducted on background where
reporters must agree not to identify sources by name.

The president’s comments on anonymous sources came amid his increased
attacks on the mainstream media, and following his recent claim that
Google news was“rigged” against him [https://www.newsweek.com/fox-
news-donald-trump-google-1093830] and that the search engine intentionally
buried news from conservative outlets that supported him and his
administration.
