As many Americans are aware, the mainstream media has touted the narrative that Secret Service is supposedly going bankrupt. They also attributed the cause of said bankruptcy to the President, the size of his family, and their frequent travel. However, reports from The Daily Wire exposed the misleading spin put on the aforementioned story. At this point, the media’s engagement in fake news should come as a surprise to no one.
There is great danger in only reporting on a segment of the facts. Unfortunately, the fake news media does this quite often in order to suit and promote their own agenda. The full statement regarding the Secret Service and stagnant funds is as follows:
“The president has a large family, and our responsibility is required in law. I can’t change that. I have no flexibility. The Secret Service has the funding it needs to meet all current mission requirements for the remainder of the fiscal year and compensate employees for overtime within statutory pay caps. The Secret Service estimates that roughly 1,100 employees will work overtime hours in excess of statutory pay caps during calendar year 2017. Our agency experienced a similar situation in calendar year 2016 that resulted in legislation that allowed Secret Service employees to exceed statutory caps on pay.To remedy this ongoing and serious problem, the agency has worked closely with the Department of Homeland Security, the administration, and the Congress over the past several months to find a legislative solution.”
Amazing things happen when the full story is reported, as opposed to an isolated portion. Likewise, many patriotic Americans have come forth to censure the dishonest press, yet again:

I really don’t trust news anymore. This just proves they’re not even trying to be fair in their coverage of Trump https://t.co/5IfrWm84rj

Dishonest press is highly toxic to the prosperity of this nation. What kinds of times are we living in where the American people cannot count on the media to report accurately and without bias? News reporters have an obligation to do their jobs and accurately inform the American people of events taking place in the world.
We the people frankly couldn’t care less about the personal agendas of news anchors. They should either do their jobs, report fairly and accurately, or be fired. Sadly, what was once considered to be real news is now merely a sounding board for bitter left wingers to manipulate current events to paint illusions. The press has been after President Trump from the get and so far, they have not shown any signs of relenting.
