No one is retracting the false Trump said to nuke hurricanes lie but only because they didn’t receive a letter from his lawyers (yet). Lawrence O’Donnell and MSNBC got a letter. Right after he claimed Trump had Russian Oligarch co-signers on some loans.
O’Donnell, eager to rekindle the lefts three and half-year love affair with Russian Collusion, jumped the shark (even for MSDNC) and was forced to retract it.
“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,” he added.
So, business as usual?
Seriously, if MSNBC had a rigorous verification and standards process most of their “news” since before Mr. Trump was elected would have been retracted or never reported.
MSNBC is not floundering like CNN but their ratings don’t need to take more hits over the obvious partisan Trump-bashing that proves but one thing. Every time the president says “Fake News” people know about whom who he is talking.
And the media can’t help but prove him right.
