Right Wing Outlets Were Given Nunes Memo First

The Hill reports:

NBC’s Chuck Todd said Friday that Fox News obtaining advance excerpts of a controversial memo written by House Intelligence Committee Republicans “smacks of a partisan exercise.

“The House Republican Intelligence folks are actually making their partisan case look even worse right now, because they are releasing excerpts of the memo already to friendly media outlets, almost trying to build a narrative and control the headlines, the early headlines, and help feed a feeding frenzy,” the ‘Meet the Press’ moderator said in an MSNBC appearance.

Both Fox and the Washington Examiner, a conservative newspaper in Washington, reported summaries of the memo shortly after President Trump approved its release but before it was made public.
