MSNBC host went on TV and apologized for the lie that could end his career

Published

MSNBC viewers were giddy.

One network boasted about having the story that would bring down Donald Trump’s Presidency.

But 24 hours later this MSNBC host went on TV and apologized for the lie that could end his career.

When Democrats learned Deutsche Bank had some of Dona;d Trump’s tax returns they believed the momentum was on the side of impeachment for the first time since the Mueller report went belly up.

The excitement reached a fevered pitch when “Last Word” host Lawrence O’Donnell claimed a single source told him Trump’s tax returns showed loans that were cosigned by Russian oligarchs.

Lawrence claimed this was the smoking gun that would prove Donald Trump was in league with the Russians.

There was only one problem.

It wasn’t true.

Trumps’ lawyers sent a letter to MSNBC demanding they retract a false and defamatory story.

Under fire, O’Donnell went on the air Wednesday night and retracted the story, saying he reported something he had no idea was true.

Breitbart report:

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” host Lawrence O’Donnell retracted and apologized for a report that President Trump had received loans that were co-signed by Russian oligarchs.

O’Donnell said, “Last night, on this show, I discussed information that wasn’t ready for reporting. I repeated statements a single source told me about the president’s finances and loan documents with Deutsche Bank. Saying ‘if true’ as I discussed the information was simply not good enough. I did not go through the rigorous verification and standards process here at MSNBC before repeating what I heard from my source. Had it gone through that process, I would not have been permitted to report it. I should not have said it on air or posted it on Twitter. I was wrong to do so. This afternoon, attorneys for the president sent us a letter asserting the story is false. They also demanded a retraction. Tonight, we are retracting the story. We don’t know whether the information is inaccurate. But, the fact is, we do know it wasn’t ready for broadcast, and for that, I apologize.”

This story encapsulates the Russia Collusion Hoax.

The conspiracy theory about Trump working with the Russians would often see major media outlets promise a bombshell scoop that would prove Trump was a traitor.

The story would rocket around social media — with so-called “journalists” taking great delight in sharing it — only to see the story collapse within a matter of hours.

    So a SO CALLED journalist reports a story that wasn’t true (like most of the time) to the brain dear watchers that can not come to a conclusion on their own…the brain dead think he is the most credible news source in America and start spreading the lie all over the media to other brain dead liberals and then they tell a lie long enough to them it becomes fact….see if you can find ONE post on facebook/twitter/other where a liberal posted the second time and reported it was a lie….I betting you can’t…and in interviews with ANTIFA they will be screaming that Trump had business dealings with Russian Oligarchs…. THUS the liberal truth rages on.

    Dan Rather was fired by CBS for issuing an inaccurate report questioning President George W. Bush’s military service. O’Donnell’s false report is comparable. Don’t expect MSNBC to toke effective corrective actions. The network is permanently cursed with black eyes and a bloody nose.

    Rigorous verification and standards process? Since when does MSNBC – or any of the lamestream media, for that matter – have such standards?

    You don’t have to dig too deep to learn that the Trump organization has been helping launder the flight capital of Russian oligarchs for decades. Real estate is one of the best ways to hide money. How did Donnie small hands go from bankruptcy to paying tens of millions of dollars in cash for properties like his golf clubs in Scotland and Ireland? He’s Putin’s useful idiot. I challenge all of the Trump supporter to do a little research. There is rarely smoke without fire, even in this post truth world grifters like the Trumps have helped cultivate. You’re being taken for stooges.

    Lawrence O’Donnell on MSLSD (MSNBC) career is over. This news network is so corrupt it should be shut down with all its delusional reporting and drug addiction.

Jim Acosta just made one mistake that has Trump seeing red

Published

on

Fake news CNN’s Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta is no stranger to being in the spotlight.

He has made a career out of attacking Trump on national television.

But now Jim Acosta made one mistake that has Trump seeing red.

President Trump has been proactive during the outbreak of the coronavirus, giving the American people daily briefings so they can stay up-to-date with accurate information on what the government is doing to fight the virus.

This is increasingly important for Trump to do while the Fake News Media is spending all of their time fear mongering and using the pandemic to play political games and attacking Trump.

During Trump’s recent briefing, he asked Dr. Deborah Birx to establish a timeline of events for the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Birx has been able to provide real information about what is happening with the coronavirus and she began her time by reassuring Americans that what the Trump administration is doing to fight the virus is working.

She continued, “I will remind you that on February 3rd, the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban. It wasn’t until January 14th that we knew that there was human-to-human transmission . . .”

But Dr. Birx was interrupted by CNN’s Jim Acosta who shouted, “Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away. It’s April.”

President Trump was furious Acosta had flat-out interrupted Dr. Birx mid-sentence and stepped in to say, “It is going away. I said it was going away and it is going away.”

Following Acosta’s obscene behavior, Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley blasted Acosta in a tweet that identified a “press pandemic” in America.

Many Americans think Acosta crossed a line interrupting Dr. Birx.

Turley’s criticism is fair when looking at what fake news CNN and the rest of the media elites have been doing since the outbreak of coronavirus in the U.S.

They have done nothing but fear-monger to Americans, and now that they have the country hyperventilating around the clock, they are playing politics to attack President Trump.

Do you agree with Jonathan Turley? Does America have a “press pandemic” from fake news CNN and media elites spreading fear and playing politics instead of delivering facts and information?

Ted Cruz shut down The Washington Post with one massive reality check

Published

on

The Fake News Media once again failed American during the coronavirus outbreak.

So called journalists popped champagne corks over the ability to blame President Trump for the Chinese virus.

And Ted Cruz just shut down The Washington Post with one massive reality check.

The media is celebrating every bit of bad economic news that rolls in as the government lockdown to combat the coronavirus sends millions to the unemployment line.

Washington Post “fact checker” Glen Kessler relished the idea of the economy – which Donald Trump regularly touted – turning sour and being a weak point in the re-election campaign.

Kessler wrote, “Line from Trump’s State of the Union address that did not age well: ‘Incredibly, the average unemployment rate under my administration is lower than any administration in the history of our country.’”

Ted Cruz slammed Kessler in a tweet by pointing out that the fake news hated the fact that President Trump oversaw an historic economic boom and now did back flips over a once in a century pandemic that deprived the President of this talking point.

This pandemic is showing just how much many journalists root against the country and hope the bottom falls out just because they hate President Trump.

So-called “journalists” are pulling off their masks and revealing that they are Democrats first and Americans second.

CNN’s Jake Tapper flat-out refused to correct AOC when she was caught in this outrageous lie

Published

on

Members of Congress used to be known for only lying to their constituents back home.

And the media was once known as “the arbiter of truth” and an institution of trust and respect.

But that has all changed and now CNN’s Jake Tapper flat-out refused to correct AOC when she was caught in this outrageous lie.

CNN’s Jake Tapper has gone from being considered by some as a respected, impartial journalist to just another left-wing hack who can lie and promote the Left’s with the best of them.

Tapper recently admitted that he allowed Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to blatantly lie about President Trump during a recent interview.

AOC said during the interview, “The beds and the capacity that we need in this country. And we’re hearing it every step of the way from this administration. First, we were hearing that it’s a hoax, then we were hearing that everything was fine.”

This all stemmed from earlier false press reports claiming the President called coronavirus a hoax. The claims were quickly disproven and even corrected by most news outlets.

But clearly not by CNN.

Tapper later even admitted he knew it was a lie from AOC, but chose not to say anything.

“I thought about it, because the president did not call the virus a hoax.” Tapper said.

Tapper went further in trying to deflect from the Congresswoman’s lie by simply accusing the president of being a liar.

“I guess that’s the problem with a politician who lies so often. While I agree that Democrats are mischaracterizing what he said, what he did say was also false so it’s tough to justify taking the time for a fact check when it’s not taking a stand defining the truth,” Jake added.

So, in other words, because Tapper doesn’t like the president and personally believes Donald Trump lies often, he decided not to correct a blatant lie on his show.

This disregard for the truth is so widespread by the media now, Tapper’s decision didn’t receive much coverage.

There was a time not so long ago when ploys like this would have cost a reporter his job.

But we have moved far past that time in history.

The Trump era may go down in history as the time that journalism died its last death.
