The mainstream media's full-fledged feeding frenzy surrounding Buzzfeed's phony anti-Trump hit piece exposed the press's blatant bias this week; with countless networks, pundits, and politicians baselessly predicting the president's impeachment.
"They have shot themselves in the foot time and time again, because they so desperately want this to be the truth, as opposed to saying, 'You know what?"
- September and October 2015: As a Trump Organization lawyer, Michael Cohen receives a proposal for a hotel, office and residential building in Russian Federation that comes to be known as the Trump Tower Moscow project.
Jeffrey McCall, a professor and media critic at DePauw University, suggested to Fox News that when one media giant reports on another outlet, it should "explain its financial interests and connections".

- January 20-21, 2019: Giuliani suggests in TV interviews that Trump remembers conversations with Cohen about the project "up to as far as October, November", or right up until the election. He said his comments were "hypothetical" and "not based on conversations" he had with the president.
During the campaign, Trump asserted multiple times that he had no business interests in Russian Federation. "But now it's time to get precise, you can't be so loose anymore".
At the same time, Giuliani made headlines of his own. Last May, Giuliani went on Sean Hannity's Fox News show and acknowledged that Trump repaid Cohen for hush money payments to Stormy Daniels, the porn star alleging an affair with Trump, a statement viewed then as a misstep but later perceived as an effort to minimize revelations about possible campaign finance violations. I can't think of a person who has been as unfairly treated as this, by both the media and, to some extent, the special counsel. But at other times the president has expressed dismay at Giuliani's scattershot style.
"The President never (emphasis ours) spoke with Cohen about the congressional testimony", Giuliani told the New York Daily News, adding that any talks that occurred would have "happened between the lawyers [and] would have been part of the joint defense agreement".
Just before the media fallout from the BuzzFeed article, Giuliani told CNN's Chris Cuomo that he "never said there was no collusion" between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, a focus of the Mueller investigation, just that the president would not necessarily be aware of it because thousands of people worked to get him elected. The letter of intent was also quite detailed.
"I am afraid it will be on my gravestone".
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not respond to questions Tuesday about whether Trump still had confidence in Giuliani.
