    Drive-by Media Retracts False Reports About Guliani

    NY Times, Washington Post, NBC correct articles on Giuliani
    The Associated PressBy DAVID BAUDER - AP Media WriterMay 3, 2021, 4:18pm












    FILE - In this Nov. 19, 2020, file photo, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani speaks during a news conference at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington. Federal agents raided Giuliani’s Manhattan home and office on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, seizing computers and cellphones in a major escalation of the Justice Department’s investigation into the business dealings of former President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer.

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Washington Post, New York Times and NBC News all issued similar corrections to stories regarding Rudolph Giuliani, former President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, and his dealings in Ukraine.
    The corrections, to stories that ran last Thursday or Friday, take back reports that the former New York City mayor had been warned by the FBI that he was the subject of a Russian operation to influence the American election.






    NBC's online correction on Saturday was the most extensive, and it required both the headline and top of a story that ran a day earlier to be rewritten. The network said it had been told about an FBI briefing of Giuliani by “a source familiar with the matter,” but later learned from a second source that the briefing had been prepared but not delivered.
    The Times' story last Thursday, following up on last week's raid of Giuliani's Manhattan home and office, was broader in focus but included the FBI report. Saturday's correction said the article misstated whether Giuliani had received the “so-called defensive briefing.”
    The Post last Thursday had said that both Giuliani and the One America News Network had been told by the FBI they were targets of the Russians. In a note attached to the story on Saturday, the Post said that its report about OAN was incorrect. The newspaper said Giuliani had disputed the assertion that he had received the briefing, so both the OAN and Giuliani details had been removed from their story.
    It was not immediately clear why the correction said the Post was wrong about OAN but that the Giuliani report had been “disputed.” The Post's Kris Coratti Kelly said in a statement Monday that “it is now believed” that Giuliani had not been briefed.
    Giuliani, on Twitter, said that the Times and Post “must revealed their sources who lied and targeted an American citizen.”
    Neither news organization on Monday commented on Giuliani's demand.

    It's an old trick.

    Run with big bold headlines with the fake story for a few days, wait a week, then run a small retraction on Page 12.

    And the left wonders why we hate the MSM with a purple passion.

    But the allegations are out there and that's what was wanted in the first place.

    Giuliani and OAN's Chanel Rion were hot on the trail in Ukraine if I remember correctly. Russian disinformation? Who knows. Lots of politically connected Americans seem to have been making money in Ukraine, so I am inclined to believe this is a bit more than "Russian disinformation". Sorta like Hunter's laptop is "Russian disinformation". Right, I believe that.

    I also had to laugh when the FBI didn't take the Hunter laptop hard drive copies. The FBI already knows THAT is Russian disinformation, they're looking for some OTHER Russian disinformation.

    So the FBI is still looking for "Russian" interference in the election, but not interested in systemic fraud in 6 USA cities/metro counties? Right here in the USA?

    Nope, ain't buying it. Political hit job fishing expedition. That seems to be what the FBI does best.

    Let's review. Democrats claim that the elections were the most secure in history, yet Biden says he put together an election fraud committee.

    Let's review. Rudy is guilty of working with the Russians to influence the election, yet as already stated the elections were the most secure ever.

    Let's review. Trump was accused and impeached over quid pro quo which Biden was actually guilty of.

    Back is front up is down black is white. We live in a very dangerous world.
