Took two days for them to actually watch the tape they initially reported on. Mmkay.

Each lie buys a few more votes.

From the By-Any-Means-Necessary crowd.

VOTE! These people must not gain power.

Yup, the old "correct it later after the theme is instilled in the minds of the public" tactic.

They are desperate and still failing 😃

Well, when they make a CORRECTION that is indeed admitting a mistake. Something Fox News rarely ever does.

In fact there was nothing wrong with calling Robert E. Lee a great general. Politics has nothing to do with it. Greatness in a general is about military skills, and Lee was putting up a hard fight using inferior resources.
Like Rommel. One can praise Rommel, as a military leader, without being committed to the politics of Hitler.

However, even I know that general Grant came from Ohio. It should not have taken much journalistic genius to guess that a politician speech-making in Ohio would be praising the "native son".

Hey Xuen! Don't be disrespecting Akhenaten by comparing him to Obama! 🤣

Akhenaten was a free thinker. Barry was a puppet.

Or you could just admit you lie and not GAF...like the former democrat Senate Majority Leader:

Se n. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) not only refuses to retract the allegation but also seems to take great pride in it. When pressed by CNN's Dana Bash last year about continuing to defend a statement that is not true, Reid responded, "Romney didn't win, did he?"

By-any-means-necessary.

At least many in the public are starting to wake up to this.

The only reason the retards made the correction is because they were called out on it. Imagine being so low-information that even with audio and video recordings of what comes out of Trumps mouth, you decide to lie to the public anyway so as to continue maintaining your 'Trump is a racist, vote democrat' sloppy dribble.

Until it gets soooooooo bad that NBC are FORCED to acknowledge that they lied for political purposes, calling it a 'correction'

Pathetic, these media organizations should have their broadcast licenses revoked when such sloppy journalism is exposed for what it is

You're gonna honestly sit there and tell not only me but everyone who reads your words Fox News doesn't spread fake news?

How partisan are you? It might be time for you to take a step back from your poltiical ideology and reconsider what you actually stand for.

Btw, a CORRECTION means they're not fake news. Fake News doesn't correct itself because it's whole purpose is to spread lies, misinformation, and propaganda.

No, the lack of corrections would indicate that they finish with "fake news."

Since were talking about tweets here:



It was actually the speaker, Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes, who brought the sword. Not that the sword was involved in the violent mob attack by the Proud Boy's though either — McInnes brought the sword for a re-enactment of the assassination of Inejiro Asanuma, a Japanese socialist who was killed during a televised debate when a 17 year-old ultra-nationalist rushed the stage and stabbed him with a sword.

He was a great general. There's no crime, or mistake, in saying that.

His little rag tag army, ill equipped, ill supplied more often than not, gave the much more powerful Union army fits right up to the day the surrender was signed at Appomattox.

I'd match Lee up against any Union general, save perhaps George Thomas, who should have had Shermans spot, save for, you guessed it, politics. Sherman was Grant's boy, and while a good general, wasn't in Thomas' class.

Was he as good as Lee? Maybe. He was certainly as good as Lee's right hand man Longstreet.

There's nothing at all wrong with acknowledging Lee's talents as a general, and as a leader.

Well, Robert E Lee was an incredible soldier too. Just because he was not on the winning side does not mean he was a bad general. Why do people get their tits in a bundle over stuff like this? I suppose I will get my a$$ chewed out for saying a common phrase in day's of old now.

Great. So I think many people can agree the media frequently lies, regardless of the side.

Since this thread was about NBC's current example, is your only comment the one that makes the point 'the other side does it too' or are you more along the lines of the Harry Ried camp?

Exactly.

I don't care if people are offended by my opinion on Lee. He was a gentleman, and a warrior. His actions after the surrender show that for all to see who can be bothered to look.

Some, perhaps even most, of his officers wanted to conduct a guerrilla war, he admonished them to not do that, that the war was over, and that the healing should begin.

That Grant was equally magnanimous in victory, made the aftermath much easier than it might other wise have been. Not that there weren't issues, of course, there were...but it could have been so much worse.

Magnanimity in victory, as well as defeat, as demonstrated by those two fine officer and gentlemen is a lesson some could learn these days...not just in Washington DC, either.
