WATCH: One Journalist Brilliantly Calls Out Biden Admin For Their LIES After Trying To Take Credit For Trump’s Accomplishments   by A.M. Smith  2/25/2021

 One reporter in the Press pool seems to have   remembered that journalism is about reporting facts   not regurgitating talking points.

 On Monday, Matt Lee, an Associated Press reporter   with a host of by-lines in a variety of media sources   over his career, called out State Department   spokesman Ned Price for attempting to take credit for an accomplishment for the work done under the Trump administration.

Price was discussing the updated report sent to Congress regarding the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, an $11 billion Russia-backed project that would transport natural gas from Russia to Germany. This project would make Europe even more dependant on Russian energy.

President Trump was quite vocal in his opposition to the pipeline saying that it could turn Germany into a “hostage of Russia.” In 2019, Trump imposed sanctions on firms assisting in its build. The sanctions worked.

During Monday’s presser, Price was implying that it was the Biden administration that was responsible for 18 entities scaling back their involvement in the pipeline construction.That’s when a random act of journalism occurred — Lee confronted Price on the Biden administration claiming credit for Trump-era policies. It got a bit heated, and then Price backpedals furiously

The AP's Matt Lee slammed Biden spokesman Ned Price for taking credit for the Trump administration’s Russia policy, during the State Department briefing on 2/22/2021.
