FIGURES: Washington Post Wins Pulitzer for #FakeNews Russia Collusion Click-bait Garbage Can Reporting

The Washington Post had quite a year publishing fake news after fake news on the pretend Russian Collusion crap sandwich.

In May 2017 WaPo ran a series of garbage reports on Russia — For this they were given a Pulitzer?

The Washington Post got punked  in May when they posted a joke about Putin and Trump and ran it as a legitimate news report!

The DC paper has published screaming headline after headline that turn out to be complete trash.
Even the National Enquirer would be red-faced after at this point.

It’s as if the WaPo will print anything for clicks.
They’ve become a click-bait site.

What a disgrace.

Here are the four completely inaccurate reports published by the Trump-bashing Washington Post last year.

1.) The Washington Post was completely off in their fake news reports on Comey asking for more funds to investigate Trump before he was fired.

The Washington Post reported that former FBI Director James Comey sought more resources for his Russia probe just days before he was fired by President Trump.

Too bad the story was complete garbage.

The Department of Justice refuted the report Wednesday saying Comey DID NOT ask Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein for more resourses for the Russian conspiracy probe.

2.) The Washington Post was wrong about Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein threatening to resign

The Washington Post reported that “Rosenstein threatened to resign after the narrative emerging from the White House on Tuesday evening cast him as a prime mover of the decision to fire Comey,” citing an unnamed source close to the White House.

This was completely inaccurate.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told WJLA reporter Michelle Macoluso he DID NOT threaten to quit over James Comey firing.

In fact it was Rosenstein who urged President Trump to fire James Comey!

3.) The Washington Post claimed Sean Spicer was “hiding in the bushes.”

Mr. Spicer WAS NOT hiding in the bushes as the Washington Post reported.

Mediaite reported

The Washington Post offered a correction to their readers on Wednesday, in order to clarify a really strange account about how Sean Spicer tried to avoid talking to reporters after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

Shortly after Comey’s firing set of a political firestorm this week, the White House had to scramble in order to control the impact and respond to overwhelming media intrigue. During this time, WaPo released a report stating that Spicer was hiding in the White House’s bushes on Tuesday night, and that he only emerged from the shrubbery once reporters promised not to film him while he took some of their questions…

WaPo has since amended the original article with an editor’s note saying Spicer was among the bushes instead of inside them.

4.) The WaPo posted a joke by a careless Republican and reported it as fact—
The far left rag reported that Trump was being paid by Putin.

It was another crap story.

But the crap report got lots of clicks and that’s what counts at the Washington Post.

And that is where we are today with the modern-day liberal mainstream media.
They are handing out Pulitzers for clickbait trash.
