BuzzFeed’s Trump Story Latest In Long List Of Russia Bombshells That Weren’t

The Daily Caller

excerpt:

BuzzFeed News’ latest disputed report about former Trump attorney Michael Cohen is just the latest in a long line of Russia “bombshells” that turned out to be anything but.

The Special Counsel’s office disputed a Thursday night report by BuzzFeed claiming that President Donald Trump directed his lawyer to lie about a potential business deal in Moscow during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The BuzzFeed report was used to float impeachment proceedings and obstruction of justice charges against the president, but Mueller’s team disputed the core premise of the reporting.

“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

BuzzFeed is currently standing by the story, but unfortunately for the press, the obsession to prove collusion has dampened their journalistic abilities, leading to a seemingly endless list of corrections, retractions and apologies.

We’ve compiled a list of some of the worst media screwups when it comes to Russia.

1. CNN Accuses Don Jr. Of Wikileaks Collusion

Last December, CNN’s Manu Raju reported that Wikileaks emailed Donald Trump Jr. to give him access to stolen documents a full ten days before they were released to the public.

Unfortunately for CNN, it turns out their sources gave them the wrong date. Don Jr. actually received an email with access to the stolen docs on Sept. 14, 2016, after they had already been released publicly.

2. ABC Tanks Stock Market With Fake Flynn News

ABC was forced to suspend Brian Ross after he falsely reported that former national security adviser Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that then-candidate Donald Trump ordered him to make contact with the Russians.

The stock market dropped a few hundred points at the news — but it turned out to be fake.

ABC clarified that Flynn was actually prepared to testify that Trump asked him to contact Russia while the administration was transitioning into office. Pretty standard preparation for an incoming president.

Cuomo: ‘Mueller Didn’t Do The Media Any Favors Tonight’

The Washington Free Beacon

January 18, 2019 10:30 pm

Excerpt:



CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said Special Counsel Robert Mueller "didn't do the media any favors tonight" and handed President Donald Trump a gift when his office refuted a BuzzFeed News report implicating Trump in a felony.

BuzzFeed reported Thursday that Trump had directed longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, citing two anonymous sources in law enforcement, leading Democrats to say it would be grounds for impeachment if true. However, a spokesman for Mueller's office said in a statement the report was "not accurate."

Discussing the developments with former Obama solicitor general Neal Katyal, Cuomo sounded annoyed.

"Mueller didn’t do the media any favors tonight, and he did do the president one, because as you saw with Rudy Giuliani and as I’m sure you’ll see with the president himself, this allows them to say, ‘You can’t believe it. You can’t believe what you read, you can’t believe what you hear, you can only believe us,'" he said. "‘Even the special counsel says that the media doesn’t get it right.'"

Uh Cuomo, your bias is showing. Notice the word "News" is missing from his little rant, "Mueller didn't do the Media any favors". And notice too, the Idiot he's talking to still says there needs to be an investigation...:rolleyes:

Well, Chris, when the media LIES and they create fictional events to further their biased agenda and get CAUGHT, y'all need to take the punishment for your crimes!

If you can't butch up and face the music, get out of the game, you sanctimonious asshat.

While I am against abortion, sometimes I wish certain parents would have believed in it. After all, what's good for the babies of NY should have been good for the governor of NY and his whiny brother.

So, Cuomo thinks it’s Mueller’s job to do the media “favors” by letting it’s wishful thinking stand as fact. How about the media just stop fantasizing and stick to simply reporting actual facts?
