Media zeroes in on HHS-nominee Tom Price, gets another story completely wrong…

They wanted to sink Senator Jeff Sessions, they failed.

They may get Rex Tillerson, with help from Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.

Here is latest on Health and Human Service nominee Rep. Tom Price….

In their own story, Price didn’t know his portfolio manager purchased the stocks.

Zimmer Biomet is included in a broker-directed account and that the stock was purchased without his knowledge, a Price aide said after the story published.
But CNN asked Price’s office before the story published if there was a broker involved in the transaction, and a representative for the congressman declined to say.
A Price aide claimed the congressman learned about the stock purchase on April 4, 2016 — a few weeks after the source said the financial adviser made the transaction. Price continued to hold about $2,000 worth of shares in the company, the source said, despite having introduced the bill that would have helped the firm just days earlier.

That should be the end of the story.

Nope.

The facts from a former Price staffer…

They tried.
