Accuracy in Media

The Washington Post made it seem that a top White House official who works for President Trump is under investigation in the Trump-Russia investigation. But, upon further analysis, the Post is vague in their wording, per the Washington Examiner’s T. Becket Adams:

The Post’s Friday scoop, however, which alleges federal officials have identified a top White House official as being a “person of interest” in the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 election, should be handled with caution.

The Post’s report is thin on details, and it makes use of a great deal of suspiciously vague language…

…That’s not saying a whole lot about anything. First off, the sources are implicating a whole group of people (White House advisers close to the president) while deliberately not naming the one “person of interest.” Secondly, that term—”person of interest”—is hopelessly vague.
