More Fake News: Trump ‘Opposes’ Israeli Settlementsby JOEL B. POLLAK
The mainstream media are abuzz with reports that President Donald Trump has come out against Israeli settlements. The New York Times was exultant: “Trump Embraces Pillars of Obama’s Foreign Policy,” it crowed.
That kind of story serves two propagandist purposes. First, it provides a kind of justification for Obama’s betrayal of Israel at the UN Security Council over settlements last month; second, it nods at the old NeverTrump claim that Trump would never keep his word to conservatives.
There’s just one problem: the story is false.http://www.breitbart.com/jerusalem/2017/02/02/settlements-fake-news-trump-opposes-israel/
Do the 3 or 4 readers of the NYT care that the story is fake?
