Breitbart News reports that Nigel “Mr. Brexit” Farage blasted Piers Morgan and his team on Thursday for “fake news” over an interview with former President Donald Trump, which Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle described as “deceptively edited.”
“We saw the 30-second clip that Piers Morgan released,” Boyle said in an interview with Farage, explaining how Morgan’s team deceptively edited the clip to make it appear as if Trump angrily stormed off mid-interview.
“Piers Morgan goes over by 40 minutes,” Boyle explains. “Trump’s team says, ‘All right, time to wrap it up, last question.’ Piers Morgan just kind of keeps going, right? He keeps asking more and more questions…
“But the idea that Trump ripped off his microphone, stood up and stormed out of the interview — that’s just blatantly untrue. And again, I’ve never in the 11, 12 years that I’ve been doing this, I haven’t seen an interview this badly mischaracterized and misleadingly and deceptively edited as bad as this one is,” Boyle added.
“I mean, it is … it is … it is the most disgraceful kind of journalism,” Farage agreed.
“I hope that President trump learns from this and doesn’t keep doing interviews with the establishment,” Boyle added.
Trump released a statement slamming the attempt to “unlawfully and deceptively edit his long and tedious interview with me… It just shows, however, what I have to deal with in the Fake News Media. He went out of his way to deceptively edit an interview and got caught.”
