I see what you're saying, but to me the difference between journalism and punditry is journalists verify their stories before running it.

The profession of Journalism is dead. Everyone is a pundit. In fact, most people in the media are social media addicts who thing Twitter and Facebook is where you get news. Pfft!




Is this what happens when your mind is so open your brains fall out.

The on air apology and retraction...


O’Donnell said, “Last night, on this show, I discussed information that wasn’t ready for reporting. I repeated statements a single source told me about the president’s finances and loan documents with Deutsche Bank. Saying ‘if true’ as I discussed the information was simply not good enough. I did not go through the rigorous verification and standards process here at MSNBC before repeating what I heard from my source. Had it gone through that process, I would not have been permitted to report it. I should not have said it on air or posted it on Twitter. I was wrong to do so. This afternoon, attorneys for the president sent us a letter asserting the story is false. They also demanded a retraction. Tonight, we are retracting the story. We don’t know whether the information is inaccurate. But, the fact is, we do know it wasn’t ready for broadcast, and for that, I apologize.


Notice that O'Donnell simply can't bring himself to properly apologise.
Instead of saying "We don't have any proof that the story is accurate", he says "We don't know whether the information is inaccurate".... once again disgraced liberal caught pushing fake news is trying to position the narrative as something that needs to be proven false.
Clown.

So just as everyone expected it has been proven to be fake news.

Why did anyone think tax returns, which Obama's IRS has, which Obama would have loved to use against Trump, had anything illegal in them? It is a proven fact Obama weaponized the IRS against Conservatives. The IRS apologized for it and admitted it. Liberals keep acting like these are super secret tax returns no one has ever seen. The IRS has them people. Democrats are not looking for wrongdoing, they are looking at what they can twist to embarrass Trump for political gain.

Conspiracy theory?

IRS Apologizes For Aggressive Scrutiny Of Conservative Groups

In a legal settlement that still awaits a federal judge's approval, the IRS "expresses its sincere apology" for mistreating a conservative organization called Linchpins of Liberty — along with 40 other conservative groups — in their applications for tax-exempt status.

And in a second case, NorCal Tea Party Patriots and 427 other groups suing the IRS also reached a "substantial financial settlement" with the government.

www.npr.org...

How is the IRS admitting it, paying money as recompense, and apologizing for it a conspiracy theory?

MSNBC had to retract this story and actually apologized to Trump.
www.foxnews.com...
www.washingtonpost.com... ct=on
Even the left leaning LA Times ran the story of retraction and apology. www.latimes.com...

You probably don't like FOX, but MSNBC is not just left leaning, it has aired fake news and now has openly admitted it. This is one such story. Fake news.

You just can't believe MSNBC or CNN when it comes to anti-Trump or anti-conservative anyone or anything stories. They are the propoganda arm of liberalism spreading hate for anyone or anything even remotely conservative. The liberal media is making sure liberals think every single conservative is evil (racist, sexist, homophobe, dangerous gun owner, bible clinger). They will openly tell lies to make certain people fear and quake at the sight or mention of Trump or anyone or anything conservative.

Of course, all this has accomplished is hardening of the hearts of everyone who voted for Trump against liberals who daily find reasons to declare them all ists/isms etc. At this point they have lost any chance of converting conservatives to vote for their candidates. You can't call someone horrid names over and over and over, then expect them to like you enough to vote for or with you. Just isn't human nature.

Sorry.

As I pointed out over and over again the story makes no sense. The IRS has his tax returns. If his tax returns had proof of illegal activity and lying on official forms we would know about it, because the government already has it.

Yes the Left can't even apologize correctly. It's a journalist job to verify things given to them for their veracity and accuracy. If they can't do either of those, you don't run the piece........unless it hurts Trump.

He didn't verify his source like he should have and issued an apologize under threat of legal action. Like I said in an earlier post, it's interesting that this particular "FAKE NEWS" brought a legal response rather than a twitter tirade that is Trump's normal response to "FAKE NEWS". Wonder what was different about this compared to other times he calls the MSM fake. I think this is still worth keeping an eye on as Congress is still investigating Trump and associated entities for money laundering.


An attorney representing the United States House of Representatives in a legal battle to obtain President Trump’s bank records from two financial institutions indicated Thursday that the Congressional chamber is conducting a money laundering investigation involving Mr. Trump and his family. The disclosure sheds light on House Democrats’ agenda for investigations into Mr. Trump and the future direction of potential impeachment proceedings.


U.S. HOUSE CONFIRMS IT IS CONDUCTING “MAJOR” MONEY LAUNDERING INVESTIGATION INVOLVING PRESIDENT TRUMP

Like I say, one to watch and I wouldn't be surprised if reporters are working this story but need corroboration/verification.

Why would we know? I'm not sure that we would.

While loans from Russia seem shady and add more fuel to the fire - - how are they illegal? Where is the illegal activity?

I don't think even Trump's ardent supporters would argue he is self serving.

No, there are theories and there are lies. Obviously you do not know the difference. But hey being a Uber - Trump - Hater it is not surprising.



Also, MSNBC is not Alex Jones. MSNBC is not being censored either.

Sounds like money laundering..sounds like anyway.


Sounds like a straightforward real estate sale to me. Please explain where you see evidence of criminal activity in it. I hate to keep harping on it, but it's clear that most of you really don't have any clue what money laundering actually is. Money laundering is disguising illegal income. It does not mean "any financial transaction involving a Russian."

BTW, That was a time when a ton of wealthy foreigners were buying US real estate at stupidly-high prices. And most of them ended up losing a ton of money.


Many billions of dollars have been laundered in my neck of the woods in the last few years. Usually via 2 mechanism's..casino's, and real estate. One cant buy a shack now for much less than $800,000.00

I don't know if the OP is true, I'm just pointing out it happens..a lot.

Yes, real estate prices are high these days, but how does that equate to money laundering? We've had real estate bubbles before. In fact, the bubble for high-end condos is in the process of popping right now.

As I said, it's clear that most people who are tossing around the term "money laundering" don't really know what it means.

Here is a report from my area roughly 5 billion laundered via real estate. We are talking 1 year!
