After DOD Denial, ABC Still Pushing November Intel Report Story
ABC News ^

Posted on 04/08/2020 7:44:43 PM PDT by East Tennessee Redhead

Even after an unambiguous, direct denial from the source of the alleged report, ABC is still pushing the story that:

"As far back as late November, U.S. intelligence officials were warning that a contagion was sweeping through China’s Wuhan region, changing the patterns of life and business and posing a threat to the population, according to four sources briefed on the secret reporting."

Buried deep in the article is a clear and direct denial:

"The Pentagon did not comment Tuesday, but on Wednesday evening following the publication of this report, the Defense Department provided a statement from Col. R. Shane Day, Director of the NCMI.

"As a matter of practice the National Center for Medical Intelligence does not comment publicly on specific intelligence matters. However, in the interest of transparency during this current public health crisis, we can confirm that media reporting about the existence/release of a National Center for Medical Intelligence Coronavirus-related product/assessment in November of 2019 is not correct. No such NCMI product exists," the statement said."

Yet, the narrative remains front and center on the ABC news site.

Did this come up in the presser today? Trump said “I haven’t seen that.”

Of course they denied it. At PDJT request/orders so he can make more money on the drug company he must own making HCQS. Oh, and Z paks too.

President Trump won’t have any time to read it for a while because he will he spending the next 2 years signing every single stimulus check that gets paid to American taxpayers. :-P

The left and the media ascribe too much excellence to our intelligence agencies. They did not see the fall or the Iron Curtain coming, or 9/11. Whatever they do, does not seem to be of much use to the USA.

You shouldn't have changed the headline.

You now risk having this thread pulled.

ABC is Disney.
NBC, MSNBC are Comcast
CNN is ATT

The country is getting screwed by the few elites running these corps.

I hope President Trump doesn’t sign them personally. Check kiting is a series offense. 😈

The NCMI report was made available widely to people authorized to access intelligence community alerts.

In that case it would have leaked. Maybe we would have known through HUMINT on the ground in China. But those assets were pretty much liquidated during the previous administration:

No problem. Have ABC come up with the informants and copies of the intelligence assessment so they can be publicly scrutinized.

Well, they’re journalists, so they get to decide what’s true.

OK, fine. So where was the House Intelligence Committee probing the matter to get to the bottom of it? Oh yea, huh? Impeach, impeach, impeach!

Any story to this effect does NOT help the left, at all! Can’t have it both ways, unless, of course, the dems have the media in their hip pocket. Oh yea, huh?
