In an interview with NPR Gen. Kelly blasted the Mainstream Media’s sources as dishonorable and low-level.
Kelly said that frequently stories in theÂ Washington PostÂ or theÂ New York TimesÂ were based on â€œrumorâ€ and cited dishonorable or low-level sources.
â€œI think the press, and maybe itâ€™s because only certain people talk and those people maybe leak or are sources â€” and maybe those people arenâ€™t as honorable as they should be,â€ 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 regularlyÂ used by the Mainstream Media as a source.
