and yet still they arent the ones who lied in their reporting, making them more reliable than the media outlets who did.

You opinion is not based on any facts. Breitbart is a RAG.

Still waiting on you to cite your source supporting the claim you made about all the intelligence agencies.

It was not Breitbart who had to issue retractions. It was the Associated Press and the NY Times (so far).

Take a deep breath
Melt downs can be stressful.

Fact - Breitbart did not lie in their articles.
Fact - Breitbart didnt have to retract their articles because the nfo in them was false.
Fact - CNN had to retract their stories.
Fact - The NYT had to retract their stories.
Fact - The AP had to retract their stories.
Fact - The AP lied when they claimed Trump would use 100k guardsmen to round up illegals.
Fact - Only 3 agencies were moderately confident Russia hacked.
Fact - The DNC refused and still refuses to turn over their servers to be forensically examined.
Fact - The method crowdstrike used was flawed.
Fact - you still have not provided your sources to support your claim about the other intelligence agencies.

Thanks for the info... Not sure what it has to do with its contents though. Did the AP not retract the articles as the op source claims?

The source in the OP was only reporting on a retraction by the AP, Associated Press.
The quote from the original AP source is in a previous post.
Direct from the AP

And this is the thread about the NY Times retraction 2 days ago:

and yet the AP retracted the stories.

So, again, your point? Or are you claiming the AP never retracted anything?

Maybe next time read the article.. If you did you would have seen the link to the AP -

Clarification: Trump-Russia stories


WASHINGTON (AP) -- In stories published April 6, June 2, June 26 and June 29, The Associated Press reported that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump. That assessment was based on information collected by three agencies - the FBI, CIA and National Security Agency - and published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which represents all U.S. intelligence agencies. Not all 17 intelligence agencies were involved in reaching the assessment.

lol, he may or may not, people retract things all the time, that is what happens why you try and report news as it happens.

That does not mean Russia was not involved, it doesnt change much at all actually.

But of course you are going to go and run with "NA na an ana nboob boo...trump was awesome and telling the truth this WHOLE time and you were wrong...ca ca poo pooo, ha ha"

they did lie and were forced to correct the lie... Just like the NYT had to do.. Just like CNN had to do, just like the AP had to do.

Cite your source for your claim all intel agencies supported the conclusion to one degree or another.

Told by whom? Because somebody lied and if you believe MSM innocent if this, then it would have to be a source in government doing the lying, which would be far more serious.

They were told in public congressional testimony by Clapper that their information was not correct, yet they waited until now to file a retraction. Why did they not correct their reporting right at that time? There must be some reason. Something has changed.

So any retractions to Hillary to win in a landslide/Trump has no pathway to 270 articles in the works?

I guess that means you are going to run around trying to spin false stories that were retracted to keep the russia trump bs alive.

Good point. Who was the first one to publicly spread this lie? In my memory, I think it was Hillary Clinton during a debate. But I am open to correction with evidence. I will research this a bit.

No.. they think she won because they think we use a national popular vote instead of an electoral college.
