Heaney talks “big lie” strategy on ‘Pressroom

What to make President Donald Trump’s banishment of CNN reporter Jim Acosta? Jim Heaney tells Susan Arbetter of The Capitol Pressroom that Trump’s continued assault on journalists is part of a “big lie” strategy intended in part to destabilize democratic institutions.

Heaney also discusses a recent Investigative Post story on two economic development programs in Western New York that go begging for takers.

Arbetter will discuss state and national politics this coming Tuesday at an Investigative Post event at the Burchfield Penney Art Center. Details and tickets can be found here.
