Posted on 03/15/2021 6:32:06 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
The outlet quietly admitted that the former president never asked the state’s top election investigator to “find the fraud,” but rather encouraged the official to “scrutinize” ballots.
The Post’s full, seven-sentence correction attributes the misquote to faulty “information provided by a source”:
Hours after The Washington Post made a correction to its story that it had “misquoted” former President Donald Trump, the former President issued a blistering statement.
The bad reporting from WaPo claimed Trump told Georgia’s top elections investigator “to find the fraud,” in December. The Post says this quote was false and they lay blame on an unidentified source.
“The Washington Post just issued a correction as to the contents of the incorrectly reported phone call I had with respect to voter fraud in the Great State of Georgia. While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt a non-story, the original story was a Hoax, right from the very beginning. I would further appreciate a strong investigation into Fulton County, Georgia, and the Stacey Abrams political machine which, I believe, would totally change the course of the presidential election in Georgia.
“Fulton County has not been properly audited for vote or signature verification. They only looked at areas of the State where there most likely would be few problems, and even there they found large numbers of mistakes. We are seeking to find and reveal the large-scale election fraud which took place in Georgia. Many residents agree, and their anger caused them not to turn out and vote for two Republican Senators in the January election.
“The Consent Decree signed between Raffensperger and Stacey Abrams was not approved by the Georgia State Legislature, and therefore should be deemed invalid, and the election result changed. Why the Governor and Raffensperger ever approved this Consent Decree is one of the great questions? We look forward to an answer.
“You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way—against me and against Republicans. Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do the least harm—for example, after an election is over. Look no further than the negative coverage of the vaccine that preceded the election and the overdue celebration of the vaccine once the election had concluded. A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press. This latest media travesty underscores that legacy media outlets should be regarded as political entities—not journalistic enterprises. In any event, I thank the Washington Post for the correction.”
When a source provides faulty info the source should be exposed.
And yet that is what the bitch used to have him impeached after his loss.
“Create the fraud” would be wrong, but “find the fraud” just sounds like what it is, a request to find out why the ballot count is suspiciously and blatantly off from reasonable expectations.
Damage is done.
Fake “so sorrys” are meaningless.
I won’t forget.
This was not an 'error'. This was a lie.
You can’t hear God’s truth if you’re busy listening to the devil’s lies. Why anyone would believe anything they say is beyond me.
That’s what they do and it’s intentional. Get it out there and it is forever true in the minds of the left.
Prof Di Dongsheng and friend.
At a Nov 28, 2020 panel in Shanghai, Prof Di Dongsheng, mused over the narcissism endemic to Western elites
(like the Biden Crime Family, Cong Swallwell, GA Secy of State Raffensberger)
and the ease to which they are brought under the spell of the Communist People’s Republic.
Communist Chinese operatives w/ hidden agendas conscripted “prominent Americans and institutions” who were even willing to work against the interests of their own country.
The professor related his own triumphs as a CCP operative in recruiting new and useful American “friends.”
America’s top pols fell easily to China’s leveraging of insatiable Western appetites for power, influence, and money. NOTE Prof Di Dongsheng is Vice Dean of the School of International Relations at Renmin University (the school for children of the CCP elite).
MUST READ REFERENCE At a fund-raiser for turncoat Republican, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger,
he actually spoke Mandarin to hit up Chinese attendees for campaign contributions.
So its easy to understand why he screwed Trump last November.
Raffensperger is in the pockets of the Chinese-—they tell him what and what not to do.
Raffensperger is a plusperfect example of political crud--- a lowdown US pol willing to work against the interest of his own country to stay in power.
Mission accomplished....the Election has been stolen.
Bezos is the source.
It served its purpose for the libtards. All that matters.
Similarly, all the incorrectly run pcr tests that ran 35-40 cycles to grossly hyperinflate covid case numbers served their purpose as well.
“attributes the misquote to faulty “information provided by a source””
Full audio recording of the call was available. I listened to the whole thing. There’s no need for “a source” to attribute information through when anyone can listen to the whole thing.
What if the source answers to the name of “Jeff?”
Yep. This is exactly like Harry Reid’s after the fact acknowledgement that he lied about Romney cheating on his taxes by simply smirking and saying, “He didn’t win, did he?”
Was that audio available when the WaPo article was written?
Nope Trump should be able to sue the Washington post for Damages. You got to hit them where it hurts.
