WaPo Forced To Issue Major Russiagate Correction–Further Discredits Itself

Now, we have this.

Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple just called on CNN to correct their dossier reporting.

He pointed out that CNN claimed multiple times that the debunked dossier was mostly true.

From Breitbart:

A Washington Post columnist criticized CNN for not correcting its reporting that the dossier put together by Fusion GPS and ex-British spy Christopher Steele — which claimed the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia — was “corroborated.”

The paper’s media critic, Erik Wemple, wrote Friday that CNN hosts and reporters had long-claimed the Steele dossier had been at least partially corroborated, lending credibility to the now-debunked document that consisted of opposition research against the Trump campaign paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Wemple noted that CNN host Don Lemon had said in November 2017, “Much of the dossier has been corroborated,” CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer said in June 2017, “CNN, by the way, has corroborated some elements of that dossier,” and that CNN anchor John Vause said in January 2018, “A lot has been verified.”

Wemple also wrote that a February 2017 CNN report by Evan Perez and Jim Sciutto that claimed that U.S. investigators had “corroborated some of the communications” in the dossier. “Narrow though the reporting was, it served as a springboard for broader expressions of confidence in Steele’s work,” Wemple wrote, “That brand of asymmetry helps explain why many people mistrust CNN.”

Fake News vs Fake News…

…They are turning on each other

Both CNN and The Washington Post should be apologizing to the American people for the lies they have spread.
