Rep. Trey Gowdy called out the left-wing media on Monday for constantly citing fake and anonymous sources when it comes to the wiretapping scandal involving President Trump.
“I think Congress is much better equipped to do investigations than journalists are,” Gowdy told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer. “We can’t rely on anonymous sources. We can’t rely on leaked information, classified information which in and of itself is a crime.
“So with all due respect to the reporters, I can’t cross-examine anonymous sources. You can’t even directly examine them. It’s a lot easier to write a news piece than it is to conduct an investigation,” he continued.
“What Congress needs is access to the witnesses, access to the documents, and to understand that we don’t run parallel criminal investigations. We have a job to do, but it is not to investigate crime.”
He is absolutely right. Stop using hidden sources. If you can’t reveal them, they do not count.
It is time to make our media more accountable for the fake news they publish.
