Guess How Many Days it Took NBC to Issue Correction for Trump’s Comments on Robert E. Lee?

Published

NBC took two full days, that’s 48 hours, to issue a correction concerning comments made by President Trump about Robert E. Lee, which just goes to show little the mainstream media cares for journalistic integrity.

No longer are the major networks concerned with making sure the American public are equipped with the facts, informed on the hot issues of the day so they can make up their own minds. It’s all about creating a narrative that forces people to think a certain way, to make loyal robots for the Democratic Party. It’s sad, really.

On Friday, the media outlet tweeted that Trump called Confederate General Robert E. Lee “incredible” and included an edited clip of Trump saying Lee “was a great general.”

Except, as The Daily Wire previously reported, Trump was not praising Lee out of the blue (despite constant media claims that Trump is a white supremacist), and he never called Lee “incredible.”

Trump was actually talking about what an effective general Lee was (which is undisputed by historians) and how difficult it would be to defeat him. And Union General Ulysses S. Grant was not viewed as a great general but he ended up beating Lee anyway. Trump’s point was that someone who is flawed (as Grant was with his drinking problem) can defeat someone with all the right credentials.

It wasn’t until Sunday afternoon that NBC issued a corrected tweet with Trump’s full remarks, admitting the president never called Lee “incredible.”

It’s nice of them to finally make a correction for a story they obviously got way wrong, but the fact remains that if they hadn’t been in such a rush to attack President Trump, if they had effectively done their duty to perform due diligence and do some basic fact checking, this whole thing could’ve been avoided.

Journalists and the outlets who publish their work have a responsibility to provide the information the public need to stay up on important issues. They do not have a duty, nor a right, to force feed a specific view of the facts down the intellectual gullets of their viewing/reading audience.

People are smart enough to draw their own conclusions. They don’t need leftist media to do the thinking for them.

Video: Biden Says Drunk Driving Is Not A Felony for Undocumented, Won’t Deport Because of It

He said what?

Joe Biden was speaking. Look out! Some crazy quotes are heading your way. For example, the 2020 Democrat frontrunner literally said he won’t deport illegals for drunk driving. No joke. His words. Think about that for a second. How many people have died from reckless, intoxicated drivers? Has Joe considered the fact that nobody would get hurt (or killed) by an illegal if there aren’t any illegals in the country? How can Democrats support this kind of rhetoric? Is Joe’s own family cool with this kind of talk? If so, why?

It couldn’t be more clear. With President Trump, it’s “America First.” With liberals, it’s “Anyone BUT America First.” The only reason that “America Second” was a winning strategy in 2008 and 2012 was because Barack was a minority. The left was desperate to get a black man into office, regardless of his policies. If Joe or any other Dem thinks the “America Second” strategy is going to work against Trump in 2020, well, best of luck – because it ain’t happening.

WATCH: Schiff Admits Trump’s Impeachment Is About Stopping Him From Winning Re-Election

Bing…Bang…Boom!

He admitted it, folks. The impeachment of President Donald Trump is strictly political. Of course, conservatives knew this from day one. The mainstream media has yet to catch on, but maybe now they will get a clue. Maybe. On Wednesday afternoon, radically far-left Congressman Adam Schiff said something that should end this charade once and for all. And yeah, Schiff’s words are a very big deal. From Daily Wire: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), who is serving as a Democratic impeachment manager during President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, admitted on Wednesday that Democrats’ partisan impeachment was about stopping the president from being re-elected. Schiff said, “The House did not take this extraordinarily step lightly. As we will discuss, impeachment exists for cases in which the conduct of the president rises beyond mere policies, disputes to be decided otherwise, and without urgency at the ballot box.” He added, “Instead, we are here today to consider a much more grave matter and that is an attempt to use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election,” Schiff continued. “For precisely this reason, the president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewsHour/status/1220056517510156298?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220056517510156298&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fschiff-admits-in-senate-trial-that-impeachment-about-stopping-trump-re-election WATCH: Rep. Adam Schiff: “What we’ve seen here is far more serious than a third rate burglary of the Democratic headquarters.” “Where is Howard Baker?
