Posted on 05/01/2021 8:48:53 PM PDT by Rennes Templar
The New York Times, The Washington Post and NBC News walked back their reporting about FBI's communication with President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani regarding Russia.
The Washington Post was the first to report on Thursday that Giuliani was warned that he was the target of a Russian influence campaign last year. The newspaper, citing people familiar with the matter, also reported that One America News (OANN) was given similar warning.
But the Post issued a correction on Saturday saying that it removed assertions that Giuliani and OANN had received such warnings.
"An earlier version of this story, published Thursday, incorrectly reported that One America News was warned by the FBI that it was the target of a Russian influence operation," the correction reads.
"That version also said the FBI had provided a similar warning to Rudolph W. Giuliani, which he has since disputed. This version has been corrected to remove assertions that OAN and Giuliani received the warnings," the paper said.
A spokesperson for The Post had no additional comment when reached by CNN.
The New York Times similarly reported on the FBI's contact with Giuliani.
The subject of the Times article was the FBI's investigation into Giuliani and stated that the firing of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was at the center of the probe.
The Times had written that Giuliani had received a "formal warning" from the FBI about Russian disinformation.

” stated that the firing of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was at the center of the probe.”
Since when can a President not fire an ambassador who is opposing his policies and working against his interest? Ambassadors have zero due process rights to their position.
Fake news goes marching on.
Giuliani supposedly was lobbying for her ouster, which somehow constituted lobbying for the Ukraine, as if it’s their business whom POTUS sends over to represent the US. She was a corrupt, evil b!tch, interfering in Ukrainian law enforcement by telling them to drop the investigation against Burisma. Giuliani might have agreed with Trump’s decision to fire her and said so, but anyone with a lick of sense would have said the same.
I’ve enjoyed hearing Giuliani on the talk shows, including Mark Levin, telling us the TRUTH.
I how most news is sourced these days. Hopefully Rudy can sue them for something.
Lol! All three in record time?? That must have been some attorneys letter!
Are on the threshold of having political dissidents being arrested and held as political prisoners? We have seen this recently with examples, but it seems it is fixing to go to the nuclear level.
I think Rudy knew what these guys where going to do and was ready
Fake news cries wolf again.
Partisan media shills alert.
“People familiar with the matter” = malicious rumor-mongers. It’s what constitutes the news these degraded days.
I can’t imagine any other reason, since “journalistic integrity” hasn’t mattered much to these operations for years, and there’s little chance their reputations will ever be restored, retractions and corrections notwithstanding.
Still, I have little doubt the average low information voter is still under the impression Rudy is crooked (and PDJT by extension), or his office wouldn’t have been raided.
So, msm mission accomplished.
This is all so obscene.
So they want us to believe that Yovanovich is the pure as driven snow victim of Russian influence exerted on Trump using OANN and Giuliani as intermediaries?
And we should believe it, because all that Michael Cohen, Carter Page, Papadopolous et al Russian collusion stuff turned out to be true?
People are too stupid to know they are being gaslighted.
Ibought a fifth of Russian Vidka the other day.
That night I got a call from the FBI.
They said I was the victim of a Russia Influence campaighn.
Apparently the distillery is owned by Pooty himself.
“Za vas !”
The left in America detest Russia ever since Putin interfered with Obama’s Arab Spring and made Obama the official Putin Bend Over Boy.And what really mad them mad as hornets is that COnservatives applauded Putin for doing it. The Alinsky left still have not gotten over it.
The facts of this remain pretty much unpublished. Obama and Hillery at State organized destabilization protests throughout the middle East, creating massive numbers of refugees , just like the Dems have in Central America, using Googole, facebook and Yahoo.
These refugees were headed to the Crimea via Turkey when Pooty slammed the door on Obama by invading Crimea to prevent this mass migration of Muslims into Russia.
The Dems are still not over it, these masses of Obama refugees migrated into the soft underbelly of Eastermn Europe instead. Pooty laughed all the way to the bank as he sold gas and oil to Germany and others.
Obama and Hillery screwed the pooch. Butno one even wrote about how Putin got the best of them.Of course President Trump understood all this and also understood why Putin invaded Crimea,Obama and Hillary caused it. Trump drew the line and made Putin stay out of Ukraine.Watch Biden do enough stupid things to invite Pooty to walk into Ukraine unimpeded.Biden does not like Ukraine’s present truly representatibe government, it is not corrupt enough for Joe.They have the goods on Geriatric Joe and Hunter.
So, they all got it wrong at the same time? Hmmm....
Goose stepping all the way.
