The Palmieri Report previously reported on The Washington Post being forced to correct articles pertaining to the Steele Dossier.
It was actually worse than we initially reported.
It has now been exposed they were forced to correct over a dozen articles pertaining to the Steele Dossier.
The Washington Post made headlines last week when it corrected and altered two stories that inaccurately identified a key source of the discredited anti-Trump Steele dossier – but the paper also added editor’s notes to at least 14 other reports.
The two stories, published in March 2017 and February 2019, were changed when the newspaper’s executive editor, Sally Buzbee, said she could no longer stand by their accuracy. The post added editor’s notes, amended headlines, removed sections identifying Sergei Millian as the source and deleted an accompanying video summarizing the articles.
The changes came after Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the Trump-Russia probe further discredited the already-shaky dossier when Russian national Igor Danchenko, who is believed to be a sub-source for the dossier, was indicted.
The Post’s media reporter Paul Farhi wrote the indictment suggests “Danchenko may have gotten his information about the hotel encounter not from Millian but from a Democratic Party operative with long-standing ties to Hillary Clinton,” noting Clinton ally Charles Dolan, Jr. could be the unnamed operative when he penned an article announcing the changes.
In 2019, the Post’s politics section Twitter account posted that “Millian, identified as an unwitting source for the Steele dossier, sought proximity to Trump’s world in 2016.”
The tweet was eventually deleted, days following the Post’s correction.
At least one such story now includes an editor’s note that reads:
“An earlier version of this story published March 29, 2017, referred to previous reporting in The Washington Post that Belarusan-American businessman Sergei Millian had been a source of information for a dossier of unverified allegations against Donald Trump. In November 2021, The Post removed that material from the original 2017 story after the account was contradicted by allegations in a federal indictment and undermined by further reporting. References to the initial report have been removed from this piece.”
The Post has additionally amended headlines, removed sections of articles identifying Millian as the source of the dossier and deleted videos that summarize the articles.
