WaPo did a page one retraction:

Source: WaPo; No Russian Involvement!

Absolutely no link to Russians. Way to go fake news...

I think yourself and many others are confused as to the definition of fake news...

If a source posts a retraction, that means they are admitting that they were wrong.

Mistakes happen, it's a good thing to see a retraction, much better than what most purveyors of actual fake news do who typically ignore anyone who says they're wrong...

Turns out they were right :-(

WaPo ran a retraction story as their main article as of 10pm and it's supposedly the front page for the print edition.

Edit: I see you saw the post and replied now. Careful for that first step...

I think you are confused. They are printing the retraction because every major news organization called them out. This isn't the first time this has happened with WaPo.

They were called out for over sampling during the run up to the election and after being called out fixed it. Their poll went from a 14% tilt to a 2% "within the margin or error".

The Washington Post is full of Sh't.

Stop reading it.

Clinton's owners, sponsors and partners desperately trying to provoke war with Russia before Trump get inaugurated on the 20th. Deceleration of war or state of emergency is their only hope of stopping it.

No, it's you who is confused.

This is fake news:

The Washington Post article is wrong news.


It is the result of trying to be the first to break a story.

I accept your apology.

I wasn't aware an official definition for fake news had been agreed with all parties. Has there been, or do just want it to be the way you want it to be?

Funny, you were fine with it HERE




Exactly.

It's amazing that the left create the 'fake news' attack on others and then when they are caught time and time again pushing fake news, they say 'get over it'.



Why are you calling me out on calling something fake news but applaud it when the 'left' gets called fake news?

Sounds like it's YOU who want it the way you want it.

Pathetic.

I guess the irony is lost on you....

You didn't even read it properly, did you? I didn't say they were wrong, hard to take you seriously when you can't even properly comprehend the English language.

Yes, infowars are the heroes for pointing out that the Washington Post got it wrong!

How many bs, fear mongering, rubbish articles have infowars written over the years??

Please tell me you are intelligent enough to be able to read a story and do a little bit of fact checking to determine it's validity? I'd hate to think you were they type to just say "I don't like the source, so waaaaaaa!!!!"

See Chad, the irony here is that when Alex Jones calls you out for posting bull#, you really need to take a good hard introspective look at yourself.

Seems reading is hard for you too.

I never said they were wrong.

I'm saying they're bold to go on about fake news..

Infowars are pro chemtrails too...how's that cognitive dissidence going for you?

No, you are just too dense to understand. This was indeed fake news. Wrong news gets a point or two wrong. Fake news completely makes up a premise. The WaPo completely made up the story and did not vet any information.

Again, it's not the first time the WaPo has been caught with their pants down. You can really embarrass yourself if you dig in on this.

LOL, and you say I have reading comprehension issues. I'll say it nice and slow for you in hopes that you catch it this time.

Infowars might be the source, but the story is truthful. Much like if CNN posted it, we would all assume it was fake until proven otherwise. And again, the irony here is that since Infowars is such a bull# site, and AJ is so often wrong, to have his site point out the glaring mistake in the WA Post, is well, ironic.

Hopefully you read this slow enough that is sinks in.

Yes, I'm well aware of the irony.

Hence the meme....

after the Iraq WMD fiasco, anyone who believes anything the CIA says without seeing solid proof, deserves to be fooled and treated like a fool.

I certainly disagree with you here as one who thinks the whole Bush clan are working for someone else besides 'Merica, i am a conservative who saw the WMD issue during the Clinton Presidency before the war, you know Gassing Kurds, obtaining yellow ore and such. Ask the Kurds if they had been victims of WMD and they will tell you. ISIS used the leftover and killed themselves in one video.

So infowars gets a free pass do they?

Nope, not in my book.

Fake news doesn't get retracted, it gets left out there for the plebs to continually lap up and parrot.

I'm not defending Washington Post, not in any shape or form, so don't try to make out I am.
