Skip to comments.‘The Thrust of this Article Is No Longer Correct’: NBC News Backs Down from Fake News Hit(TR)
Posted on 12/27/2018 6:41:06 PM PST by KC_Lion
NBC News has finally, a full day after being called out for printing the fake news, admitted that its article published on Christmas alleging President Donald Trump snubbed the troops during the holidays this year is incorrect.
NBC has altered its headline and story, changing their meaning to remove the original anti-Trump thrust, and added an extended editors note beyond the original editors note appended when it was first discovered to be an inaccurate piece. The new editors note admits in no uncertain terms that NBC News printed fake news, and that it was only leaving the article up in the interest of transparency despite the fact that the thrust of this article is no longer correct according to NBC Newss own editors.
NBC News continues to, despite claims of being interested in transparency via its editors note, resist journalistic integrity and accountability on this front, and will not through a spokeswoman name the editor or editors involved in the publication of this fake news hit on Trump. NBC News also, through a spokeswoman, will not answer if there will be any accountability at all when it comes to the reporter on the byline of the article or the editors involved in publishing the fake news attacking the president.

LOOK at those smiles! :)
NBC. Nothing But Crud
Nobody of sound mind believes NBC anyway......so this is a big yawn.
They’re all positively beaming!
Unfortunately, too many people NOT of sound mind watch MSM and vote.
Is that a woman standing nearby anticipating her own moment meeting the President of the United States?
I thank them all for their service.
The ‘editors involved’ were just following orders from NBC anyway. Their jobs have all become GET TRUMP at NBC.
Are news organizations taught how to "thrust" stories on the public?
I think it was CNN that said POTUS Trump brought the Troops a bunch of TRUMP 2020 Hats (which would be unlawful electioneering), which of course he didn’t.
Haven’t heard a peep about that, just something on Twitchy about all the Liberals going on about (the fake) controversy.
Worthless. Absolutely worthless. NBC. MSNBC. CBS. ABC. CNN. The New York Times, The Washington Post. Just plain worthless. I don’t even give them three seconds of attention.
They were trying to say they did it on purpose without saying they did it on purpose. Newspeak.
Did anyone in the MSM bother to mention that the Obamas spent every Christmas of his presidency on vacation in Hawaii?
President Trump is having lunch with the Pope on his yacht when the Pope's mitre blows off his head and into the water. President Trump immediately says: "Let me get that for you, your Eminence!" whereupon he vaults over the side of the yacht, proceeds to walk on the water over to the mitre, picks it up, walks back to the yacht, and gracefully vaults fifteen feet back onto the yacht and hands the mitre to the Pope.
Headlines the next day: Trump Can't Swim!
It would be funnier if it weren't true.
As to the on-or-before-Christmas vs Christmastime, the proverbial twelve days of Christmas are the twelve days after Christmas, ending with The Epiphany, the feast of the Magi, on January 6. The days before Christmas are Advent, the days of preparing for the birth of Jesus.
No longer correct? As though at one time it was?
NBC is lost in the wilderness. They were paid to take care of the NWO. Unfortunately for them, they are buffoons.
