The original ABC quotation of Fleischer that aired on “Nightline” said: “[Spicer’s Saturday] briefing made me uncomfortable. It was too truculent, too tough. It looks as if the ball was dropped on Saturday.”
Here’s what Fleischer actually said:
@Nightline proves Spicer right about MSM’s dedication to negativity. Here is what I told them in a taped interview: 1/4
“It looks to me if the ball was dropped on Saturday, Sean recovered it and ran for a 1st down on Monday.” 2/4
Here is how they chopped my quote: “It looks to me if the ball was dropped on Saturday” after ABC referred to “deliberate falsehoods.” 3/4
If this is how the press reports, Trump is right to go after them. 4/4
When the press distorts someone’s quote and twists their words, we all have a problem. 5/5
