Ari Fleischer calls out media for hooker scandal lapdoggery; See why

By

Ha! That’s crazy talk!

As Twitchy reported, news broke Wednesday night about a Washington Post exclusive that uncovered a White House cover-up involving the secret service hooker scandal. Breaking news? We were there, but where was the mainstream media (aside from busily being shocked that the White House is untrustworthy)?

Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer immediately called out the MSM on it, who were still neglecting the story on Thursday morning.

CNN "top stories" at 9:30: PA shooting. Adrian Peterson. Markets. Isis. WH cover up of investigation of a donor's son isn't "top news".

CNN other stories: Ebola. Police Killing of Black Teen. Still nothing since 9:30 on WP scoop.

Huh. Funny that. Perhaps they needed time to come up with a false narrative first?

Look 4 WH 2 turn story into a sex story re 1 person's pssbl action. But story is Elec. year cover up of embarrassment involving donor's son.

Real story is also interference in IG investigation to hide an embarrassing incident during re-elect campaign.

Bingo.

@AriFleischer Maybe @jaketapper will cover it today? https://t.co/eh7gCM3sMh

@DCDude1776 @jaketapper I'm certain Jake will cover it. But it's not getting typical coverage of major news every 1/2 hour.

— Ari Fleischer (@AriFleischer) October 9, 2014

Tapper weighed in.

@AriFleischer @DCDude1776 I reported much of it 2 years ago.

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) October 9, 2014

Yes, both the White House press secretary and the deputy press secretary frantically scrambled to use that as pitiful spin when the story broke. But there’s a slight problem:

@jaketapper @AriFleischer @DCDude1776 Yes, you reported only what the WH said, "nothing here, move on". How about the rest of the story?

— Jack Murrell (@iu70us) October 9, 2014

@iu70us @AriFleischer @DCDude1776 nope

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) October 9, 2014

So, what say you CNN? Eventually they did run some sort of report.

@AriFleischer it was 2nd story covered in 1st block of show. And we are doing it at 11a.

— John Berman (@JohnBerman) October 9, 2014

@JohnBerman Did I miss it? I don't think it aired yet in the 11am hour.

— Ari Fleischer (@AriFleischer) October 9, 2014

@AriFleischer up next!

— John Berman (@JohnBerman) October 9, 2014

So there’s that.

@AriFleischer @JohnBerman I was stunned to see CNN run the story early this morning. Will MSNBC ever mention it?

— Ted Frank (@Colonel_Ted) October 9, 2014

MSNBC? Well, here is an exit MSNBC prediction:

Now that the WH hooker scandal is out.. I fully expect MSNBC to re-start coverage on #Bridgegate
