There is no end to the lies. Even when caught in the act red-handed they still deny.
Its pretty much anything goes in this day and age, the truth be damned.
When are the American people going to rise up and put a stop to the BS ?




This time, the Associated Press invented an imaginary meeting between EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris, and then alleged that some kind of impropriety happened as a result.





he problem with Biesecker’s piece, which ran over the Associated Press wires on Wednesday evening, is that as Breitbart News has confirmed from both sides: No meeting ever occurred, despite one appearing on Pruitt’s schedule. Sure, both were at the conference and briefly shook hands when introduced, but they never had a “meeting” because of scheduling conflicts.





Administrator Scott Pruitt did not meet privately with Andrew Liveris, the CEO of Dow,” Liz Bowman, the EPA’s spokeswoman, told Breitbart News. “The AP article is inaccurate and misleading. Despite multiple attempts to provide the Associated Press with the facts, this article has not been corrected.”





Rachelle Schikorra of Dow Chemical’s public affairs department confirmed:
I can confirm that a meeting between Andrew Liveris and Scott Pruitt never happened. The two were attending the same conference where an introductory meet-and-greet was scheduled with no topics specified. However that meeting never happened due to schedule conflicts. The two have never had a meeting and have never discussed any Dow products.





The Associated Press originally refused to issue a correction on this despite knowing since at least Thursday, as Breitbart News can confirm—the article ran on Wednesday—that the piece was inaccurate. The AP has caved and finally corrected the inaccurate hit piece on Pruitt. What’s more, the Associated Press is now—while under scrutiny thanks to a Breitbart News investigation—trying to cover up the mistake and not answer questions about the editors and others involved in the grave error, or whether they and the reporter responsible for it will be held accountable.
The AP refused to do anything about its inaccurate reporting for two days, after the original piece was printed Wednesday. Now, Friday evening, the AP is admitting its original piece was wrong by running a new piece that completely undercuts the old one. And, finally, hours later after originally refusing to do it even on Friday evening, the wire service has issued a correction on the old piece.

The press makes so much stuff up these days it is ridiculous. I suppose since they are all doing it, it is acceptable now. Someone in our government needs to put a stop to this practice. The press is supposed to tell the news, not their opinion as to what may be happening based on the authors personal beliefs.

What happened to just telling what is happening, no matter how boring it is.

The press has made s# up since the written word was posted and people could read it.
The US had an office of propaganda. Still do. Spooks in high places in media. Not a new thing at all.

Why all of a sudden things are "fake news" when some are legit untrue while other things are called "fake news" by the same people when it is obvious that the facts are out in the open is beyond my understanding.

Keeping the people on edge and just enough divided to feed the machine and not have anyone curious enough to look to where it is plugged into or the "men behind the curtain".

Is there any evidence for this beyond 'Brietbart says so'?

Not being rude. Just curious.

Well Breitbart is more credible than the AP right now. Not because Breitbart has become credible, but because the AP has nosedived.

Except the AP would have to be in on it since they are the ones who refused to address the topic once they were proven wrong. So are you suggesting the AP is sabotaging themselves?

The AP has admitted it, that's not enough?
