If it were a lie or internet meme ABC News wouldn't have admitted to it and apologized.

It's okay, Salty. We all understand the classic liberal in you means your first instinct is to claim it was a lie and ABC didn't do it instead of showing outrage that a major news network blatantly lied in a disgusting way.

ABC News released a statement apologizing for the error.

“We regret and apologize for the false lower third graphic that aired during our special report,” the statement read. “We are investigating how incorrect information was in our system and how and why it was allowed to air.”

“We apologize to our viewers and to Mr. Manafort,” continued the statement. “There simply is no excuse for this sort of mistake.”


Not an accurate representation of a white person.
