REPORT: Reporter names source after Trump slams NY Times for ‘phony source’ on North Korea story


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

Reporters called out President Trump on Saturday for claiming the New York Times falsely reported that a White House official told them it would be impossible for the president to reinstate a canceled summit meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12.

“The Failing @nytimes quotes “a senior White House official,” who doesn’t exist, as saying “even if the meeting were reinstated, holding it on June 12 would be impossible, given the lack of time and the amount of planning needed.” WRONG AGAIN! Use real people, not phony sources,” Trump said in a Twitter post.

The article goes on to state the following:

Reporters quickly defended the Times, saying the White House official spoke with a number of journalists in an arranged discussion on background, meaning they could not use his or her identity. One reporter, Yashar Ali of New York Magazine and Huffington Post, named the official, to prove Trump is not telling the truth. He reasoned that since he is not a White House reporter who agreed to the on-background terms, he felt okay naming the official.
