Ronald Kessler: NYT Full of 'Scam Artists'

Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now"

The New York Times is full of "scam artists" posing as journalists, author Ronald Kessler told Newsmax TV.

During a Monday appearance on "Newsmax Now," host Bill Tucker asked Kessler about the Times' report that suggested Donald Trump Jr. might have colluded with Russians during his father's presidential campaign.

Kessler ticked off points where the Times report omitted information.

"The New York Times ignored the first sentence of Don Jr.'s statement, which was that he didn’t even know who this person was, they didn't give her name to him before the meeting," Kessler said. "So, he met with this person, he didn't know who it was, had no idea about any Russian connection, and the New York Times suppressed that information because it would have undercut the story.

By contrast, he said, "The Daily Mail, so-called tabloid, ran a fair story. In the lede it said that Don Jr. met with this woman and didn't know who it was."

He also noted that the Times failed to note that the information about the meeting came from White House senior adviser Jared Kushner. "So it was Jared who brought out the information. In addition, this story said it's not clear if any damaging information was given to the campaign. Well, in Don Jr.'s statement he said that this information was bogus, he wasn't interested, the woman pulled a bait and switch and immediately went onto talk about Russian adoption issues. But instead they said it's not clear. "

"There are plenty of indications that Donald Trump is not a puppet of Putin," Kessler said. "For example, he sent missiles into Syria against Russian interests and all this took place during the campaign and has nothing to do with the White House. There are so many issues, as you say, that a lot of major improvements going on under the radar that the press doesn't report on."

Kessler, the author of "The First Family Detail," then gave an example of a story the Times published during the campaign with which he found fault.

"The New York Times ran the story during the campaign saying that Trump met with this beauty pageant winner at Mar-A-Lago and asked her to change out of her clothes," he said. "Well the whole thing was a complete distortion, a complete falsehood...There was no retraction."

"This is basically scam artists. We're talking about scam artists, not journalists. Scam artists who practice dishonest journalism every single day."
