How Fake News Erased Billions of Dollars and Affected Your Retirement with False Reporting

. . No comments:

The [ABC] network aired a special report Friday morning shortly after Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the month before Trump took office.

Financial markets shuddered in the wake of the report, with the Dow falling more than 350 points.

But the reporting that aired on television Friday morning was not included in ABC News' written report online, prompting questions about the accuracy of the on-air story.

The network issued a "clarification" on Friday evening, saying that Trump had asked Flynn during the campaign "to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other hot spots."

According to ABC, a Flynn confidant cited by the network clarified that it was after the election that Trump "directed Flynn to contact Russian officials on topics that included working jointly against ISIS."

Still, the error drew scorn across the political spectrum and among journalists, who blasted ABC News for initially only issuing a clarification as opposed to an actual correction about what the confidant had said. [Source]




Stop reading and watching Fake News! 

People in the Facebook comments sections have asked me why I rarely link to MSM articles or when I do I often have them archived. This is the reason why. Moving forward I will start posting more Alternative News articles and columns and when you complain and ask why, I will send you this post to remind you. Stop reading Fake News!
