Washington Post FINALLY Admits It “Misquoted” Trump’s “Find the Fraud” Comment

Remember the controversial phone call where Donald Trump reportedly told Georgia’s Election Investigator to “find the fraud” in December 2020 and that she would be a “national hero” if she did? This was a claim that originated in the Washington Post that all of the mainstream media and the Democrat Party ran with. The media acted hysterical that a President could act like this and pressure someone to find fraud where there wasn’t any.

FINALLY they admit that what they originally reported may not have been 100% accurate. After they ran a story without verifying it because of course “orange man bad”, two months later when no one is paying attention they FINALLY release a correction to the story.

“Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to “find the fraud” or say she would be “a national hero” if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find “dishonesty” there. He also told her that she had “the most important job in the country right now.” A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.”

What we now know was said in that December 23rd phone call is that Trump encouraged the official to closely examine the votes and that she would be “praised” when “the right answer comes out” and that by closely examining the votes she will find “dishonesty” there.

When Donald Trump first said that the media is “the enemy of the people” it really bothered me. But the more time that goes on, the more they prove that his claims were right. What else would you call this? They made up quotes that they knew half of the country would believe and ran with that story. Now, two months later, they quietly issue a “correction” and claim that their source fed them these false claims. I would like to know who this “source” was? Were they fired? Is there going to be any consequences? Other then the Washington Post burring this correction, will anyone else apologize for these comments? Why is this not national news?
