Media-Born FOIA Requests Rise Dramatically as MSM Goes After POTUS

This is what “journalism” is these days…and it’s frankly a bit disturbing.

Published

mainstream media

There has been no doubt in the minds of America that the mainstream media is out to get President Donald Trump, but there has been little in the way of hard evidence to back up those claims.

Sure, the “news” media on television is blatant enough for us to simply accept their biases.  Reports have indicated that nearly 90% of all mainstream coverage of President Trump is negative – a fact that the media defends with circular logic, insinuating that, if Trump didn’t make so many mistake then there wouldn’t be such negativity.

It’s a bit like a dog chasing its tail, at this point isn’t it?

But now there’s another metric by which we can measure the media’s interest in ousting a sitting President:  The sheer amount of requests that they’ve made under the Freedom of Information Act.

The number of Freedom of Information Act requests the Environmental Protection Agency received from mainstream outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post spiked immediately after Republican President Donald Trump took office, according to a Free Beacon analysis of FOIA requests by the media from 2013 to the present.

The figures, obtained through the government’s FOIA online database, reveal a clear increase in requests for information from the agency once Trump was elected president.

The New York Times, for example, made just 13 FOIA requests during the four years of Obama’s second term, sending 3 in 2013, 1 in 2014, 7 in 2015, and 2 in 2016. The number of FOIA requests the Times sent for Obama’s entire second term was nearly quadrupled in the first year of Trump’s presidency alone, when the Times sent 59 FOIA requests to the EPA.

Just how big was the jump?

Reporters at the Times have made 100 FOIA requests since Trump took office just over two years ago, a 669 percent increase of the number of FOIA requests it made during the four years of Obama’s second term.

Again, we will likely hear circular logic from the left side of American politics, blaming the media’s manufactured “crisis in the White House” for their sudden interest in government transparency.

WATCH: Hilarious Little Girl Mocks Ocasio-Cortez, & She Knocks It Out of the Park

This needs to go VIRAL!

This little girl steps up to the plate with the bases loaded and smacks a grand slam out of the park. The way she mocked freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was so on-point that she could probably walk into AOC’s office and nobody would know the difference. The way she adds the months and years on her fingers is priceless. You’ll see… “Like, I’m Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, and like, I want to talk about like, climate change, because like, there’s no doubt cow farts are making the climate change. Like, in July the climate was 96 degrees and in February the climate was 36 degrees. O.M.G. like, that’s a huge change in the climate in only four months.” “Like, I also want to talk about socialism because socialism is so amazing! Like, socialism is actually short for social media. Did you know that? Like, I use social media so I’m a socialist — and like three of the most successful countries in the world are socialist too. Venezuela, Facebook, and Twitter are all very successful socialist countries.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/THeinrich22/status/1119422809183330304?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1119422809183330304&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F04%2Fmust-watch-hilarious-little-girl-does-outstanding-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-impersonation%2F This girl deserves to go viral. Let’s make it happen! Ocasio-Cortez was a major player in making sure Amazon did not build a new headquarters in her home state. Potentially 25,000 jobs were lost along with billions upon billions in revenue. Now, a prominent investor is ripping AOC to shreds for a number of reasons. He even suggests she needs to be educated or voted out of office. In other words, he’s fed up with the freshman Democrat Socialist – just like so many other people around the country. From Daily Wire: Tracy Maitland, president and chief investment officer of Advent Capital Management, blasted socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) at the National Action Network gathering — where Ocasio-Cortez was widely…

LIKE A BOSS!

President Donald Trump was on fire Friday morning, blasting false statements left and right. First, here’s a tweet Trump sent regarding Kimberly Strassel. POTUS says Strassel, of the “Wall Street Journal,” got everything right from the beginning… Kimberley Strassel should get the Pulitzer. She is a treasure (and I don’t know her) who correctly called the Russia Hoax right from the start! Others who were soooo wrong will get the Prize. Fake News! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1119066791161077760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1119066791161077760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-calls-out-the-crazy-mueller-report-says-some-of-the-statements-about-him-are-total-bs%2F Now, check out where the sitting president of the United States actually uses the word “bullshit” in a tweet: Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue. Watch out for people that take so-called “notes,” when the notes never existed until needed. Because I never…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1119207303700471809?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1119207303700471809&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-calls-out-the-crazy-mueller-report-says-some-of-the-statements-about-him-are-total-bs%2F …agreed to testify, it was not necessary for me to respond to statements made in the “Report” about me, some of which are total bullshit & only given to make the other person look good (or me to look bad).

It is now finally time to turn the tables and bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people who have committed very serious crimes, perhaps even Spying or Treason. This should never happen again! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1119341792460247040 Radio legend Rush Limbaugh wants you to know that the Mueller probe was far more of a “travesty of justice” than the Smollett hate crime hoax. Here’s why, per Daily Wire: On his talk radio show Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh drew a connection between the two biggest stories of the week: the Cook County state’s attorney suddenly dropping all…
