Default Washington Post finally admits mistakes in coverage of Covington Catholic incident

Amazing at how one's tune changes when you're sued for a quarter billion bucks.

This reminds me of the Cohen debacle. Libs placed all their eggs in this basket and it turned out to be a giant lie. Same with the Jussie Smolett debacle.

When the fuq are libs gonna learn to get all the facts before rollin' with a story. Truth apparently isn't a top priority with the left.

Washington Post finally admits mistakes in coverage of Covington Catholic incident

Quote:
More than a month after the original incident, The Washington Post has issued an editor's note correcting it's erroneous reporting on the confrontation between Native American activist Nathan Phillips and the Covington Catholic High School students.

Early reports from the event portrayed the students as instigators who were mocking and harassing Phillips. The imagery of a white teenager wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat while smiling and staring down a Native American man fit perfectly with a narrative many in the media, including at The Post, were eager to jump on.

But, the more details that came out about the situation, the more it became clear that Phillips was not an innocent victim of harassment and ridicule from Trump-supporting students.

They knew or should have known the truth before posting the article.

They knew or should have known the truth and should have apologized after more videos started coming out.

They knew or should have known the truth and should have apologized immediately after being served with the lawsuit.

Wait... we could lose!!! We had better apologize.

Worthless.

Also... apology is behind a paywall. Less than worthless.
