The New York Times once again published another false hit piece yesterday on Energy nominee Rick Perry, claiming he wasn’t aware of what the Department does.
These first two paragraphs are the false talking point many leftists have been spreading from NYT.
WASHINGTON — When President-elect Donald J. Trump offered Rick Perrythe job of energy secretary five weeks ago, Mr. Perry gladly accepted, believing he was taking on a role as a global ambassador for the American oil and gas industry that he had long championed in his home state.
In the days after, Mr. Perry, the former Texas governor, discovered that he would be no such thing — that in fact, if confirmed by the Senate, he would become the steward of a vast national security complex he knew almost nothing about, caring for the most fearsome weapons on the planet, the United States’ nuclear arsenal.
Alex Pfeiffer of the Daily Caller destroys this false notion below.
The New York Times interpreted a quote from a former Trump transition official to mean that Rick Perry, President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of energy, didn’t fully grasp the role of the Department of Energy.
That former transition official, Michael McKenna, told The Daily Caller Wednesday that the Times misinterpreted him and Perry “of course” understood that a key role of the Department of Energy is caring for the nation’s nuclear arsenal.
Other members of the real (not fake) media also came out attacking the New York Times.
Speaking of stupid cheerleaders, many, many, many reporters fell for the NYT hit piece on Rick Perry. https://t.co/sGyCKhtDa6

Thin, thin gruel. A guy who wasn't there thinks Rick Perry might have thought a thing and might answer a question this way. FIT TO PRINT!

And of course, New York Times still has yet to either repudiate or fix their original story, but don’t get your hopes high.
They have an agenda of trying to ruin the reputation of every single one of Trump’s nominees. Fortunately, many other members of the media responded quickly to this latest garbage from the New York Times.
