“Anything But Correct” News, the alias for ABC News, had a fake news story busted wide open after their “correction” issued hours after their initial news blast. I believe it was intentional. We all know the mainstream news media lack ethics. Truth be known I believe the original news narrative was written around the “correction” was intended to be the actual conclusion to the article. ABC “sources” declared that Michael Flynn was ready to testify that “then candidate Donald J. Trump asked him to contact the Russians during the campaign.” That news blast was sent out immediately following the breaking news of Flynn’s guilty plea to charge of lying to the FBI. Flynn did not plead guilty to meeting with the Russians before or after the election to discuss policy. Flynn did not plead guilty to meeting with the Russians before the election in a collusion effort to derail the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Again stay with me, Flynn plead guilty to lying to the FBI about the meeting, not the substance of the meeting. After all, the FBI already had the illegal unmasking of Michael Flynn through wiretapped transcripts of the meeting so there was no reason for Robert Mueller to offer any plea deal regarding substance of the meetings. Realistically as everyone has reported Flynn would probably plead guilty to protect his son from being charged in the investigation. My two questions are, “How did everyone know his son was under investigation and how did everyone know how Flynn’s son was involved?” Thought lawful investigations and grand jury proceedings were to be confidential and not publicly discussed?
ABC News instinctively knew in the world of revolving 24-hour news cycle that the immediate insinuation would be understood by Americans and pushes the narrative that “candidate Donald J. Trump asked Flynn to meet with the Russian in order to collude, interfere, and everything else the left thinks happened before the election involving the Russians.” The immediate narrative push would be heard and everyone would move on to reporting on the process for impeachment. ABC News instinctively knew that most media corrections are like a falling tree in a deserted forest, does it make a sound. If you don’t see them do you really hear them? ABC never expected anyone to see or pay attention to the follow up “correction.” ABC never expected the other fake news media to lead off their newscasts with the ABC “correction.”
“[A] clarification tonight on something one of Flynn’s confidants told us and we reported earlier today,” Ross said on the program. “He said the president had asked Flynn to contact Russia during the campaign. He’s now clarifying that saying, according to Flynn, candidate Trump asked him during the campaign to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other world hot spots. And then after the election, the president-elect asked him to contact Russia on issues including working together to fight ISIS.” – ABC News stated in its 6:30pm “World News Tonight” newscast. A tweet released by ABC News containing Brian Ross’ initial report had been retweeted more than 25,000 times and reported in multiple news stories online before it was deleted. ABC finally issued a “correction” on Twitter around 8 p.m.
BUSTED! But the lie perpetrated by ABC news had already achieved its fake news effect.
On a side note…if the Mueller investigation fails to bring charges and a conviction for the illegal unmasking of Michael Flynn from intelligence wiretaps we will all know that this investigation was a sham, politically motivated and gross miscarriage of justice. Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein stated that the special prosecutor had authority to investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated” with Trump’s campaign, but also to examine “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”
Following the allegations against Judge Roy Moore for sexual misconduct nearly thirty years ago nearly all of the allegations have been debunked. Still waiting for ambulance chasing lawyer Gloria Allred to release the yearbook for handwriting analysis which we know will never happen. The fake news media ran with the claim that Moore was banned from the Gadsden Mall for inappropriate activity. Has anyone seen in the print or digital media an interview, signed affidavit, police report, or certified trespass letter from the manager or director of operations from the mall? The only news outlet that has reported with an actual interview of the mall manager is WBRC News out of Birmingham, AL. The mall manager in effect said that he had no knowledge of any trespass or inappropriate behavior by Moore. The following link will show the WRBC interview with the mall manager: CLICK HERE TO SEE VIDEO. So if you haven’t seen it yet, you can say you saw it first here on The Trump Times.
