Another example of the corruption and hypocrisy of the media and the dnc.

A story started to make the rounds about how the UN numbers showed that the US was the worst in the western world for child detentions.

The DNC jumped on it, posting this was because Trumps people and their white supremacy.

The afp, reuters, they picked it up and were eager to show how terrible trump was.

Only one problem, turns out, the numbers were from 2015. When Obama was President.

So what did these groups do? Surely they said "oh, this is still an important story, and it rasies questions why child detention under Obama was so bad, and why no one spoke up about it"?

Nope!

Instead, tey announced they were deleting the story.

Here is the tweet the DNC war room removed.



How about the AFP story



Here is the link to reuters retraction.

www.reuters.com...

But remember, the media and the dems really care about child detention, and its not a partisan issue.


It would be hilarious if it wasnt so sad.

Does this even count as a new low? I've lost track.
Either way, at least they're being consistent dragging themselves across the bottom.

They have no shame.

This is all about rewriting history for the
"future socialists" of America.

The greatest achievement of the Trump Administration is exposing the Media for who they really are.

They will never recover!

Maybe Jack Weinberg, the free speech activist from the left, was right in the 60's when he said "Don't trust anyone over 30." Problem is, that generation is in their 60's and 70's, but don't want to let anyone under 30 think for themselves.

Where is the leftist response? Hello? Bueller? Anyone?

I have to assume, then, that this is okay with them.

It’s really funny to see people who claim to care about truth in media get angry at said media for retracting a false story.

That’s what they’re supposed to do. It’s called being accountable.

The story wasnt false.

It accurately showed an agency reporting on children detained.

The media is retracting it because they wanted to use this true story to go after trump.

Once they realized it made their guy Obama look bad, they retracted and removed the story.

Why retract it altogether instead of publishing a correction? The story was true, the target was wrong. Suddenly, when it's their guy instead of trump, it's no longer a UN human rights violation story. Curious, ain't it?

Falsely blaming child dententions on the current administration: yep, they’re ok with that.
Refusal to report on Obama admin child detentions: yep, they’re ok with that.
Detaining children: they’re most definitely ok with that too.

“Being accountable”, yep, that describes the msm. Not.

Sad, really .

They are the epitome of disgusting, pathetic and hypocrisy. So sick of their double standards. Like they say "if they didn't have double standards, they'd have none at all".

a reply to: Grambler

all I have to say to what they did here is this

it shows what a prophet george owell was in his book 1984 when describing how the ministry of truth operates.

he was spot on and I am in much fear that the democrats and main stream press have made it a reality.

but what is more scary is people ARE SUPPORTING THIS .

from postings here supporting the looney left, to tearing down statues, banning books, and other such acts.

to those who use such tactics claiming against fascism are them themselves welcoming it.


as the saying goes

be careful what you wish for
you be damn sorry when you get it.

short answer NO

realistically, I dont think they believe in a bottom and identify it as a win.
