Update:

Yeah, bullshit #FakeNews, brought to us by the Washington Post.

The media are not disinterested neutral observers. They are active agents working against the administration, and in everything they say, they should be viewed as adversaries who will lie to advance their own agendas.

In his meeting with Lavrov, Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” the president said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.


I can't decided if this is

a) an actual official quoting Trump word for word
b) an actual official giving the gist of what Trump said, but in Trump speak
c) an actual official's account of what Trump said, translated into Trump speak by a journalist
d) a journalist making up a source to claim that Trump said this, in Trump speak
e) none of the above

Moreover, I can't decide which of these possibilities is the most amusing (except for e, that would just be boring).

Well, I suspect that it is d), since the eye witness to the meeting reported that nothing classified was divulged.

Everything reported by the Washington Post came from an "undisclosed source", which may exist only in the mind of the #Journalist.

That is the problem with undisclosed sources. #Journalists can say anything they want, and there is no way to verify the story.

That's not how Journalism works at all. I understand you are ignorant on how we do our jobs but I can explain to you later when I have the time.

Quickly, news makes its way through editors, producers, executive producers and lawyers before you get to see it. It also requires the lawyers and journalist to fact check the source material multiple times. With that being said, mistakes do happen and that's why retractions are a thing.

Either A or B

Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,”

the president said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.

Also I think I need to emphasis this:

"The Post is withholding most plot details, including the name of the city, at the urging of officials who warned that revealing them would jeopardize important intelligence capabilities."

Since that has already scrolled off the page, it would be helpful if you mentioned something like, "In the story I linked..."

Further, from the story you linked, you should have added, "...according to an official with knowledge of the exchange", which is yet another unnamed, unidentified (possibly imaginary) source, whose accuracy cannot be verified.

That is not a quote. That is hearsay evidence.
