CPAC Director Matt Schlapp: Journalists Don’t Get To Say If Trump Is Lying, That’s For The Public To Decide

“We have big political disagreements in this country, and I think it’s wrong for journalists to take that next step. And granted, she’s a comedian, but plenty of journalists do it as well. They take the next step. Just present the facts. Let the American people decide if they think somebody is lying. The journalists shouldn’t be the one to say that the president or that his spokesperson is lying, because what that does to 50 percent of the country is it makes them feel like they’re not credible to listen to anymore.” – CPAC director Matt Schlapp, speaking this morning on CNN. Schlapp’s wife Michelle is the White House Director of Strategic Communications.
