Washington Post Fake News

Washington Post corrects news story that attributed inaccurate quotes to Trump

They lied.

Story from Fox News:

The Washington Post made a massive correction Monday to a January report about a phone call between then-President Donald Trump and a Georgia elections investigator, as the liberal paper admitted multiple quotes attributed to Trump based on an anonymous source were inaccurate.

The corrected story was a hot topic on cable news and talk shows that helped spread the Post’s flawed report and media watchdogs feel it points to larger problems with agenda-driven anonymous sources and liberal outlets that rush to “confirm” them.

[…]The Post initially reported Trump had told an official working in Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office to “find the fraud” in the state, which he lost narrowly to Joe Biden, and that she would be a “national hero” if she did.

However, a newly emerged recording of the Dec. 23 call found he didn’t use those words. Instead, Trump said she would be “praised” when the “right answer comes out” and encouraged her to closely examine mail-in ballots in heavily blue Fulton County.

The original headline was “‘Find the fraud’: Trump pressured a Georgia elections investigator in a separate call legal experts say could amount to obstruction.” They changed the headline when they made the correction. Other news outlets spread the lies. The article was used in the oral arguments recent attempt to impeach Trump. People saw it on TV, and they believed it.

It happens often. The New York Times had to correct a story that claimed that Trump supporters bludgeoned a police officer to death with a fire extinguisher. That was later found to be false and retracted, but again, the damage was already done. The news media ran with the lie, and it was used in the impeachment. Again, people saw it on TV, and they believed it.

The news media likes to say that this was just an honest mistake, but the mistakes always go against conservatives. When you look at the political donations of people in the news media, it’s almost entirely going to Democrats. They’re using their power to lie to the public, so they get their candidates elected. And then the Big Tech social media companies rely on the liars to “fact check” the rest of us, and censor us for telling the truth.

Remember that the entire Trump-Russia collusion news story also relied on anonymous sources. But in the end, it turned out that Democrats paid for the dossier that was used by the FBI to justify spying on Trump. I don’t remember anyone in the news media facing consequences for running a fake story for months and months.

By the way, the Washington Post is owned by the CEO of Amazon. I’m already trying to reduce my dependence on Amazon. You might want to think about it. He’s not a good person, and we shouldn’t be making him rich.

  1. Not that I think that anyone (of the l3ftist persuasion that dominates in gov3rnment bur3aucracy) would support it, however, a regulation that states “any false reporting has be corrected in the same manner of publication with the same level and length of visibility” might go a long ways towards producing more accurate and less part1san n3ws.

    1. They just have to pass a law exposing them to lawsuits for false news, and then instruct the judges to clean them out the first time. Finish off the company with one lawsuit.

  2. The Left lies because their father was a liar and murderer from the beginning.

    And bearing false witness leads to murder. That’s why they stand proudly on the backs of 65 million aborted innocents to the same degree that they once stood proudly on the backs of Black people.
