Journalist Suggests Media Start By Assuming Trump Is Lying And Then Do “Backwards Fact Check” [VIDEO]

“I’m done being Talmudic about ‘is it a lie, what’s his intent’. Who could know intent with this man? He lies every minute, he changes his story second to second. We should just say he’s lying, folks. Start from that premise. He is a liar. If you can prove he’s not telling a lie, great – we should fact check him backwards maybe, see if anything he’s telling us is true. I think we’ve wrestled with it long enough for 18 months that we can call him a liar without being self-conscious and nervous about it, even by some of the highest standards of legacy journalism.” – Baltimore Sun columnist David Zurawik, speaking today on CNN.
