Reported and withdrawn as false reporting this week alone.

1. Flynn's testimony: Last Friday, ABC News reported that former national security advisor Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that President Trump, while still a candidate, directed him to contact Russian officials. But later in the day, the network issued a "clarification" that the direction came when Trump was president-elect. That changed the impact of the story entirely as it's a common occurrence for presidential transition teams to reach out to foreign governments.

2. Deutsche Bank subpoena: Reuters and Bloomberg both reported on Tuesday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation had subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for information on accounts relating to President Trump and his family members — seemingly confirming that Mueller had expanded his probe to investigate the president's financial dealings. The WSJ defused that bombshell in a follow-up report stating that the subpoenas actually dealt with "people or entities close to Mr. Trump."

3. WikiLeaks emails: CNN reported this morning that senior Trump campaign officials, including Trump himself, received an email from an unknown sender on September 4, 2016 that linked them to what could have been unreleased WikiLeaks documents. WaPo issued their own report later in the afternoon that the email was actually sent on September 14 — and linked to a trove of documents that WikiLeaks had publicly released a day earlier.


All you guys should just keep your powder dry on all the FakeNews. Get out of your echo chamber of lies and get all your news from me. It won't go as badly and won't keep crushing your hopes and dreams.

On the FakeClimateChange news front, it was just revealed that the ocean rise data was falsified. It hasn't risen. These "scientists" seem to fake a lot of stuff.

I love how Fox had this in their Entertainment headlines:

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainmen...-trump-campaign-had-wikileaks-sneak-peek.html

And CBS here:

NEW: Donald Trump Jr. was offered access to hacked Democratic data during campaign. A source who received the email in question tells CBS News there were about 20 people cc'd on the email. http://cbsn.ws/2y8Kkj5

Someone pointed out that:

CBS News had the email, the date was cropped out, and they fake news’d the headline. Still haven’t deleted the tweet. Our media is a disgrace.

These are not small issues.

When will the MSM and Dems learn from the Repubs and Fox News? There are new rules. Never admit your mistakes. Stand there and deny, deny deny. It's not a lie if you believe it. Eventually, everyone moves on and you win.

Please name the stories from FoxNews news shows (not Hannity or opinion shows b/c that would open up a whole can of worms for the MSM too) that were erroneous and not retracted. For that matter, the list of retracted stories would be very short compared to the MSM.

Not one of these is from a FoxNews hardnews show as I specified. Website headlines? Website errors? Fox and Friends? Hannity? Even those were retracted, which is what I asked.

The errors listed by diehard were of network news telecasts and major news organization reports.

So answer the question honestly instead of answering the question you want. Let me repeat it for you as I posed it before:

Please name the stories from a FoxNews hard news show that were erroneous and not retracted?

You’re a BSing fraud.

What they need to learn is to stop fabricating lies. But then where would you get your info?

It's too bad Gopher Alum beat me too it. I was going to get on a list of Fox News being biased/wrong right after I get done with my list of soul crushing Gopher football losses.

Oh, I see. Let’s just pretend that alum or you could answer the question I asked. If you have a list, it must be true.

“It’s not a lie if you believe it.”

If you had a real response to my question, you’d answer it. You don’t have an answer and alum’s was pathetic.

Your google works. You watch Fox News on a daily basis. There's nothing anyone can post that you won't dismiss. It's a pointless exercise.

Put on your big boy panties and admit the cnn's of the world are utterly useless and "make" the stories to fit their agenda. Admit it.

You made the accusation that FoxNews reports Fake News and doesn’t admit it. I challenged you or anyone to find Fake News that a hard news (non-opinion) Fox News show had reported and not corrected. I further said the number of misreported stories by their hard news show was negligible, period.

Alum puts up some short BS list of Fox internet stories that include a wrong word in the story and the Seth Rich story that Hannity ran before shutting it down. All of which were corrected, btw. That’s all you’ve got?

The MSM makes those mistakes everyday. I’m talking about misreporting like diehard listed.

I get it. It’s a Liberal narrative that you all love. You can’t answer the challenge on Fox News hard news b/c it was total BS, just like most of your theories.

Like I said, these stories, like the link below, happen EVERYDAY in the MSM. But they are not even close to the significance of the stories that diehard posted, which are much more critical Fake News that displays a MSM bias about significant ‘fake’ events and a desire to ‘get Trump’.

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment...on-post-writer-fake-news-tweet-012249141.html

I couldn’t care less about these kinds of fake news stories except that the high frequency displays obvious bias. Horrible reporting, but insignificant.

What's with this "hard news" bull$hit? That's such a lame excuse. So because lies are being told on "opinion" shows.....you don't consider them news (despite being on the Fox NEWS Channel) and it doesn't matter if the anchors lie or and spew misinformation.

Good god, KFC. You've got to be joking.

OPINIONS with bias are being offered on Fox News. The bias is known and guys like Hannity are billed as conservative commentators. On the MSM they are claiming to offer straight news and they are lying about it. They have been not only caught in their bias but in their eagerness to even lie if needed to get their message across. They think they can get away with it because of their supposed straight news billing.

There’s a difference between “hard news” and opinion shows or news show opinions. Hard news is reporting, what NBC, ABC, CBS claim to do. I realize you probably get what you think is news from MSNBC and CNN opinion shows, but those are not news reporting shows. Neither is Hannity and others.

Here’s a clue, when someone says “I think” or “I suspect” or “I believe” or “IMO”, that’s not news. When ABC’s Brian Ross ‘reports’ misinformation, when Reuters or AP report misinformation, or when CNN reports misinformation, that’s Fake News. If one of MSNBC’s or CNN’s opinion show hosts makes an unfounded accusation, as they so often like to do, that’s misinformation based on their opinion, not Fake News.

Hopefully, this will help you distinguish the difference going forward. You’re welcome.

Much of the time that they report fake news, it’s just b/c it’s so hard for Liberal Democrat MSM reporters to get their bias out of their thinking. If they hear one source suggest something that they are inclined to believe is true or has happened, they don’t bother to verify it. If it fits their biased thinking, they presume it to be true. Report it, look stupid, amend it, but usually move on as if nothing happened. And the rest of MSM cooperates by playing it down.

Mission accomplished with the original FakeNews. Corrections mean little to their progressive audience. That is demonstrated right here in tOTB. Even in these thread. The original lies lives forever and the correction, if ever noticed, is ignored. Then mission complete.

If it's a lie....it's a lie. There's no distinction there. If you think that opinion shows don't do any reporting then you are VERY dense. So yeah.....your "hard news" excuse is completely bull. Just another lousy "opinion" by beej and KFC.

If we held MSNBC accountable for every stupid, incorrect thing that came out of Maddow’s, O’Donnell’s and Morning Joe’s mouths, MSNBC would be doing 50 corrections a day.

It makes sense that someone who gets as much wrong as you do, wouldn’t care.

Excuses, excuses, excuses. You must get tired making excuses all day for any and every republican screw up. Misinformation and highly idiotic posts are what you bring to the board.

Come on Howie. I’ve made it clear in my original challenge:

Please name the stories from FoxNews news shows (not Hannity or opinion shows b/c that would open up a whole can of worms for the MSM too) that were erroneous and not retracted. For that matter, the list of retracted stories would be very short compared to the MSM.
The only story of the above listed that was a news report was a W/E anchor that “misspoke” about a resignation and he retracted it shortly after the mistake on that very hour.

The rest is all Fox and Friends. Fox and Friends IS NOT a hard news show. It’s like Morning Joe. People giving their opinions. And ALL of these stories were fully retracted.

You lose again!

When major news outlets make a mistake, they retract or correct the story, and very often someone is suspended or fired. In those situations, Conservatives decry the state of the modern media and use those cases to ignore any news they don't like.

On the other hand, the President of the United States lies to them daily, including many lies which are eminently verifiable, and they place all of their trust in him, even reversing course on positions they had held for years.
