Michael Schmidt, the New York Times “journalist, on so-called Comey memo to fake news anchor Brian Williams: “Someone that had seen [the memo] had recounted details to me.”
America got punked by this NYT squirrel Michael Schmidt with his James Comey memo, although you can’t blame him when it’s the entire media from both sides who decided to ignore the most crucial part of his story: the memo was recounted to Schmidt over the phone a Comey associate, the memo was never verified, never seen or read by him, but being a Trump hit piece, that’s all that matters.
Schmidt has been called out for getting a story wildly wrong before thanks to his anonymous sources. Schmidt, citing his anonymous federal law enforcement sources, claimed that one of the San Bernardino terrorists had talked about jihad openly. She didn’t.
His boss even reprimanded him and called for “systematic changes” to the way Schmidt and Carlos Slim’s blog use anonymous sources.

Schmidt’s open admissions on MSNBC confirm GotNews reporting Wednesday that Schmidt hasn’t in fact seen the relevant Comey documents.
