US ambassador to Netherlands describes own words as 'fake news'

A rough summary of the interview:
Quote:
Interviewer: "Why did you say there were "no-go" zones in the Netherlands and that cars and politicians were being set on fire in the Netherlands?"

Trump's newly appointed ambassador to the Netherlands: "I didn't say that. That's fake news."

Interviewer plays video of ambassador saying there were "no-go" zones in the Netherlands and that cars and politicians were being set on fire in the Netherlands.

Interviewer: "Why did you call that fake news?"

Ambassador: "I never said the words 'fake news.'"

I think it is imperative that those techniques are stopped very aggressively by journalists.

It requires extra prep work. In some cases it means not doing it live.

I'm glad they confronted the ambassador. And I'm still, even after 10 months shocked at the ambassadors follow up answer.

I’ve noticed that on typically sedate NPR the interviewers have started to say “That’s not true.”

I suggest importing Jeremy Paxman. Trump would have a meltdown being interviewed by him. Even John Humphreys would be a start.
