Default MSNBC’s O’Donnell: I Apologize for and Retract Trump Loan Story

He is only sorry that he was caught in a lie.

I guess he didn't learn from Dan Rather that promoting false stories can come back and nip you in the ass.

Eric Trump plans to sue. That's why this lying idiot is retracting his statement.

He retracted the story because he failed to follow a standard of journalism practice where two independent sources are needed before making the story public.

The story is that Deutsche Bank records indicate it was making loans to Trump based upon Russian Oligarchs close to Putin were co-signing the loans to guarantee payment. That story has neither been confirmed or debunked at this time.

What we do know is that Deutsche Bank was loaning Trump money when no other banks would because Trump didn't have the assets and/or revenue required to repay the loans. Why Deutsche Bank would loan Trump money, after Trump had already defaulted on previous loans from Deutsche Bank and even sued Deutsche Bank, has been a long-standing question. It makes no sense from a banking business standpoint.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

You missed the most important part, which is a blatant lie of omission...

The one source O'Donnell used has NEVER even seen the documents in question…

Uhhh….Wouldn't that be the FIRST question of a friggin' source?...

No, we don't know the details of Trump's relationship with Deutsche bank. The MSNBC goon reported the rumor without proper sourcing but in typical Resistance crazy fashion you repeat the rumor as fact.

If you watched O'Donnell's show there was no omission on his part. He openly stated that this was coming from a single source had claimed they'd seen the documents and repeatedly stated that it could not be assumed to be true. Perhaps that was a misunderstanding on O'Donnell's part but O'Donnell repeatedly warned viewers not to assume this was true because it was unverified.

Still O'Donnell should have stuck with the established practice in journalism of requiring at least two independent sources before saying anything publicly about it.

How about the established practice in journalism of not being on MSNBC?...

Yet you repeated what amounts to gossip as "what we know" about Trump's relationship with Deutsche bank. It's the same pattern of Resistance backed corruption of the media we saw with Buzzfeed publishing the unproven dossier or Brian Ross falsely claiming Trump told Flynn to contact the Russians before the election. Anything goes as long as it attacks Trump.
