WaPo Press Room Erupts in Cheers After Yesterday’s #FakeNews Story Breaks Record Set by ‘Access Hollywood’ Trump Tape Story

Guest post by Joe Hoft

It was reported yesterday by at least two different sources that the Washington Post Press room erupted yesterday when Access Hollywood announced that they set a readership record as a result of last week’s Washington Post fake news hit piece on President Trump.

Lately the Washington Post is known for Fake News stories almost daily.

on Monday they reported the false story that President Trump gave out classified information to Russia in a recent meeting with Russian diplomats. The WaPo didn’t mention in their headline what they mentioned in their post that the President likely broke no law:

For almost anyone in government, discussing such matters with an adversary would be illegal. As president, Trump has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosures broke the law.

Laura Ingraham noted sarcastically how unprofessional the Washington Post team was when its members cheered the report that Monday’s story set a record.

Glenn Kessler, Washington Post’s ‘Fact Checker’ reported:

Applause in the newsroom as Russia-leak scoop breaks the Hollywood Access record for most readers per minute.

One twitter user noted this about the WaPo fake news article:

Russia intel story broke a newsroom record previously held by the access Hollywood tape!”

“The tape everyone ignored and voted him POTUS?”
