3. A Major Black Eye': CNN's Stelter Calls Out Washington Post, NY Times, NBC Over Giuliani Retractions




CNN’s Brian Stelter knocked the Washington Post, New York Times and NBC over their retracted stories about Rudy Giuliani following the raid on his apartment by federal investigators.

The three outlets were forced to make public corrections over the weekend after falsely reporting that the FBI warned Giuliani and One America News Network they were being targeted by a scheme to spread Russian disinformation. Stelter called it “a major black eye” on Sunday’s Reliable Sources as he broke down how the three outlets were misled by their sources and retracted their reports shortly after.

“The new story is that FBI planned to warn Rudy and OAN they might be used as Russian puppets, but they didn’t actually deliver the warning,” Stelter summed up.

Stelter was joined by CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy, who outlined the screening process newsrooms use when deciding whether to publish information from anonymous sources. Darcy acknowledged that these safeguards are vulnerable to “human error,” and “sometimes, sources will get something wrong.

5. They probably could not confirm their sources?

Or they did not have at least two sources?

Or the FBI may have informed them that their information was in error?

Or Rudy may have threatened to sue them?

Who knows??

7. Something very odd is going on here. The original story mentioned Ron Johnson too

and Johnson confirmed he had received the briefing.
