Skip to comments.Atlantic Editor Now Admits Key Detail of Anti-Trump Hit Piece May Be Untrue
Posted on 09/08/2020 7:15:47 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, admitted that a key detail of his article about Trump could be wrong during an interview with CNN on Sunday.
When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed the rain for the last-minute decision, saying the helicopter couldnt fly and that the Secret Service wouldnt drive him there. Neither claim was true,” Goldberg wrote in his piece published last week. According to Goldberg, President Trump was overheard saying he wanted to cancel the trip to the cemetery because its filled with losers.
At least fifteen Trump administration officials who were with Trump on that trip have now disputed the Atlantic report, including former national security adviser John Bolton.
FOIA documents have also definitively proved that Trump’s visit to the cemetery was canceled due to weather. When Goldberg was asked about evidence that the cancelation was due to inclement weather, he admitted that it was likely true.
Im sure all of those things are true, he told CNN.
This admission by Goldberg completely undermines his entire story. Goldberg claimed the trip wasn’t canceled because of weather. Evidence proves this claim is false. Goldberg now admits that weather causing the cancellation is true. Why should we believe anything else in the story when the foundation of it is admitted to be incorrect?

Damage done, though I dont think much damage on this one. A new week- theyll come up with something fresh were supposed to light our hair on fire over
The Democrat trolls are out and active - this morning on WIND 560 AM a guy called and said that his entire family were veterans - Son was a Marine, etc. The caller claimed that no one in his veteran family will vote for Trump because of the Atlantic article.
He went on to say that his extended family were church going Dutch Reform Christians and that None of them would even consider voting for Trump.
The Trolls are well paid....
It stopped Trump’s post-convention momentum.
“Damage done, though I dont think much damage on this one. A new week- theyll come up with something fresh were supposed to light our hair on fire over”
Do not underestimate how stupid most Americans are.
Fine. Now make restitution for your unfounded slander.
Lets see how much is a presidents reputation worth?
The Atlantic should be sued by the Trump administration outrageous accusations by a liberal publication that have no basis in fact should be challenged.
Next bogus charge please. They will not stop until after the election.
This has drawn attention to those anonymous sources who are asserting that Goldberg is a pedophile.
When I read articles like this, it makes me wonder whether Putin has to deal with the same kind of shit, and assuming it’s just as bad over there, I can better understand his response to it.
“It stopped Trumps post-convention momentum.”
Evidence? Please don’t cite phony polls. How about the huge boating armadas turning out for Trump? Do they count? They also happened after this BS story was relesed.
It stopped it cold - they were REELING with Nancy’s haircut, Trump winning on the rioting, and their poster-boy shooting a Trump supporter in cold blood. None of that discussed now.
That is the POWER that the Left still has.
I don’t know about now, but it used to be when something like this happened over there, the story, along with the writer, conveniently disappeared....
Just fake news for the corrupt media to hang out there and trick a few people. It won't work, Trump will win 3 debates and have a vaccine in October, that will seal the deal.
No one will hear the retraction, the point was to damage Trump in the eyes of the military and that has been done.
RE: Is this Goldberg Luciannes son?
Nope. She has two sons, Joshua and Jonah.
Jonah was the National Review editor and the NeverTrumper.
Pelosi’s screw up was discussed plenty. It’s all over social media still and that video has been viewed by millions. Meanwhile the violence is also discussed and video put up daily. You seem to think if the networks ignore the story no one will see it but the traditional media is all but dead and if you want to believe surveys and polls than consider that the credibility of the media is at historic lows.
My guess is you are one of those who will believe anything in print or that you see on TV and since 99% of TV media is pro Biden you think the Nation must be as well. Just like in 2016 when I’m am sure you felt exactly the same.
A lot of this has been creative twisting of Trumps words. He very well may have said on occasion what was in it for them? or they died for nothing referring to soldiers. This is grotesquely contorted from the true meaning.
Many of us especially those with Libertarian leanings have said the same. Thousands of our children have been maimed and killed for the military industrial complex, and yes, for nothing. Theyve been lost in places like Vietnam, the Korean War, the Persian Gulf campaign, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, ad infinitum. What was in it for them? What was in it for us?
In the end...
The editor should be drawn and quartered for his sins against America
