Media Faces Backlash for Falsely Claiming Trump’s Sons Didn’t Pay Tab in Ireland

For the mainstream media, recent claims that President Trump’s sons Donald Jr. and Eric “skipped out” on a bar tab during their visit to Ireland are proving to be utterly false, causing further embarrassment for an already mistrusted press.

Now, publications including The Daily Beast and The New York Times are drawing mounting scrutiny after employees have pushed the now-debunked claims of unpaid pub bills.

In response, at least one pub took to social media to set the record straight, noting, “we don’t appreciate being misquoted.”

Social media commenters and conservative pundits reacted in outrage to the latest anti-Trump hit-piece, with many demanding an apology.

The NYT, WP, Buzzfeed, Politico, MSNBC, et al — love to create false nasties — knowing no one will read their apologies. The Time contributor admitted he made up a Trump quote that was headlined. Fake News is a reality that Americans have learned they are having to live with. There are other sites who actually do print the news and not the same trash we read as we check out at the grocery.
