On Friday morning, President Trump hammered the fake news media by calling out their silence on the recent indictment of former Obama White House counsel, Greg Craig.
“President Obama’s top White House lawyer, Gregory B. Craig, was indicted yesterday on very serious charges. This is a really big story, but the Fake News New York Times didn’t even put it on page one, rather page 16. Washington Post not much better, “tiny” page one. Corrupt News!” Trump tweeted.

Craig was indicted on Thursday for work that he did in Ukraine in 2012 which was uncovered by the Mueller probe.
Here’s more from the Gateway Pundit:
Former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig was indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday on charges stemming from Mueller’s probe related to work he did for Ukraine in 2012.
Craig, 74, served as legal counsel for Obama from 2009 to 2010 and worked as senior legal counsel to Bill Clinton during his impeachment.
A federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment Thursday on charges of making false statements and concealing information about his Ukrainian lobbying efforts.
Greg Craig worked with Paul Manafort, but since he’s a long time Clinton-Obama fixer, the media ignored the story.
So what does the media have to say about his indictment. Let’s keep in mind that they had wall to wall coverage when Manafort was indicted.
Check out what NewsBusters reported in relation to the lopsided reporting from the media:
On Thursday, the combined evening airtime allowed by ABC, CBS, and NBC for the indictment of former White House lawyer Greg Craig was one minute and 15 seconds. Both ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News sprinted past the story with 16 and 17 seconds respectively. NBC Nightly News offered a little bit more time (42 seconds) but it was still under a minute.
With the collusion conspiracy on their minds, those same networks went into a feeding frenzy in late October 2017.
NewsBusters previously documented that following the indictments of Paul Manafort and deputy chair Rick Gates, the evening programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC dedicated 33 minutes and nine seconds on related news, while spending 22 minutes and 14 seconds on all other news for the day. Doing the math, that meant they spent 60 percent (59.86 percent) of their total airtime on news sparked by the indictments.
Breaking down their previous coverage even further, we see that ABC and CBS both spent 70 percent of their airtime to the developments (69.6 percent and 71 percent respectively). NBC dragged the average down by dedicating only 39 percent of their airtime to Manafort related news.
Not biased at all! The media is definitely working in the best interests of the America people by only reporting news that make the Right look bad.
Now that the tables have turned, we will be seeing a lot more indictments of people on the Left in the coming months and years.
There will come a point where the media will HAVE to report the real news! It’s time to hold them accountable!
