Default Crisis at ABC News as net scrambles to explain false Manafort slur, Trump slams 'Fake

Just when you think the MSM can't sink any lower....

Crisis at ABC News as net scrambles to explain false Manafort slur, Trump slams 'Fake' network

Quote:
ABC News apologized Wednesday after airing a graphic that falsely stated former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort pleaded guilty to five counts of manslaughter -- but the network would not reveal how the embarrassing mistake happened.

During a live ABC News special report on President Trump discussing plans to sign an executive order regarding the ongoing immigration issue of separating families, ABC's on-screen graphic said, “Manafort pleads guilty to 5 charges of manslaughter.”

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.

Quote:
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.”

Why should there be outrage if it was a mistake and they apologized? Who cares?

Let me know when they "accidentally" report a news story damaging or disparaging to someone on the left.
