As soon as I read the explosive BuzzFeed News report claiming that President Trump had instructed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, I was very suspicious.
Even before the office of Special Representative Robert Mueller was issued In a statement on Friday evening that the BuzzFeed account was "not accurate", I wrote a post for the New York Daily News in which it would raise questions as to whether it would Indeed, there is credible evidence that Trump corrupted the marital body, or interfered with the judiciary, by luring Cohen to the legislators
It seemed obvious that there were no smoking gun emails bearing such instructions Contained presidents. There would be no eyewitnesses to such an alleged conversation.
BUZZFEED ROCKS MEDIA INDUSTRY ACCORDING TO MUELLER TEAM DISPUTE REPORT: & # 39; MEDIA ERRORS ARE ALWAYS ANTI-TRUMPF & # 39;
Against the impeachment of President Nixon's impeachment and resignation ̵
In fact, Cohen was sentenced to three years in jail in federal court in December after he pleaded guilty to lied to Congress, campaigning for and committing financial crimes.
The spokeswoman for President Trump and his lawyers denied the BuzzFeed report was heavily released on Thursday, even before the testimony of Mueller's spokesman had downed the story.
"Two words summarize it better than any other body can say otherwise, and that's' categorically wrong," said Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary, on Friday.
The anti-Trump experts were like that often misconceived that the only people who cling to their beliefs are Trump opponents who dream in 1965-9010 when he was forced out of office and possibly even jailed.
This was followed by the statement by Mueller, spokesman for Müller on Friday night, in which he said, "Buzzfeed describes the specific remarks of the Special Representative's Office and its characterization documents and testimonies obtained by this office in relation to the testimony of Michael Cohen are not accurate."
In the face of the apparent weakness of the BuzzFeed report, many members of the brigade "Trump at All Costs" were busy digging Trump's political grave Already ba ld after the BuzzFeed report was prepared to dance on it. Prominent Congressional Democrats speculated on Impeachin g demanded President Trump or his resignation – and made numerous false analogies to the impeachment articles presented in the Nixon case.
As is typical of the "get trump" media, wishful thinking took the place of thoughtful thinking analysis and journalistic skepticism.
The anti-Trump experts have been so wrong many times that the only ones who cling to their beliefs are Trump opponents, who dream of being forced out of office and possibly even being dissolved in prison.
These self-proclaimed media experts have lost all credibility.
I wish the media would go back and show the categorical statements and sure predictions of their paid commentators, who have so often proved false. Your exact predictions do not speak against it.
In fact, Buzzfeed has repeatedly misrepresented allegations against President Trump. Even after Müller's office made a rare public statement on Friday evening stating that Buzzfeed's reporting was inaccurate, Buzzfeed defended his allegation that President Trump had asked Cohen to congress the Trump organization on the construction of a Trump Tower lying in Moscow. 19659003] BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith tweeted on Friday evening, "We stand by our coverage and the sources that informed them, and we call on the Special Adviser to clarify what he is denying."
Cohen had said before Congress that the Trump negotiations would have taken place The Tower Deal, which was never completed, ended in January 2016, before the President's primaries began. However, the prosecution later stated that negotiations would not be resumed until June 2016, when Trump would clearly become the Republican presidential candidate.
Now that Mueller's office has declared the BuzzFeed report, Trump said Cohen should not lie to Congress about the negotiations, how could the BuzzFeed possibly say that the Special Representative's office is wrong?
Do BuzzFeed journalists know something the Special Representative and his team of prosecutors and investigators do not know? Do these reporters and editors believe that the special lawyer is not correct? Or do they double to avoid being embarrassed to admit that they were wrong?
The American people are the true victims of "wishful thinking" journalism – the coverage of elements that journalists desire is true, not elements that meet journalistic standards.  The public can not distinguish good coverage from desired coverage, especially when coverage is based on unidentified sources.
The worst offenders are the so-called expert commentators who burden the media with unfounded and biased speculations based on partisan agendas rather than real expertise and experience.
The media should – based on proven accuracy proofs – have standards that their commentators must meet before they can proceed or predict.

. I have to admit that my hope for more accurate reporting and less partisan comments is wishful thinking itself, but there is a place for such thinking. This position is not included in the reporting of facts or the prediction of results.
The task of the media is to report the facts – without endless speculations without a factual basis.
