MSM called for 'fact check' on Trump's Medicare op-ed -- they're not going to like the results

President Donald Trump wrote an op-ed for USA Today titled "Democrats 'Medicare for All' plan will demolish promises to seniors" Wednesday.  Unsurprisingly, the op-ed was immediately excoriated by the mainstream media, especially after the Washington Post ran a supposed "fact-check" claiming the editorial "contained a misleading statement or a falsehood" in "almost every sentence."

Glenn Beck reacted to the president's op-ed and its reception by the media on “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” Thursday.

President Trump's op-ed explained that the Democratic proposal would cost an insane $32.6 trillion during its first 10 years, Glenn said. "The president continued by slamming the left’s open-border policies and calling out their socialist policies," he continued.

He noted USA Today’s tweet:

As well as this rebuttal from CNN's Jim Acosta:

"I know I shouldn’t expect journalists these days to do any kind of actual journalism. I mean that’s so old-timey," Glenn said. "It’s painfully obvious that journalists like Acosta haven’t even read the left's proposal on 'Medicare for all.' It is H.R. 676. It has 123 Democrat cosponsors, that's more than half of the House Democrats, and it reads, 'It shall be unlawful for a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act.' So, CNN, how is the president lying?"

Watch the video above to hear more on this from Glenn.
