In an interview with NPR Gen. Kelly blasted the Mainstream Media’s sources as dishonorable and low-level.
Kelly said that frequently stories in the Washington Post or the New York Times were based on “rumor” and cited dishonorable or low-level sources.
“I think the press, and maybe it’s because only certain people talk and those people maybe leak or are sources — and maybe those people aren’t as honorable as they should be,” he said.
Considering the type of leaks we have seen coming from this White House it seems Gen. Kelly might be right on this. Many leaks have been targeted attacks at Trump or other staffers and rarely tell the whole story. It is important to note that former Presidental Advisor Steve Bannon was a major leaker in the Trump White House and was regularly used by the Mainstream Media as a source.
