WaPo Admits “Find the Fraud” Was a Lie

We live in an era where history is driven by lies. Prominent examples include the “Hands up don’t shoot” lie, the “George Floyd was murdered” lie, the “Brian Sicknick was beaten to death with a fire extinguisher” lie, and the “find the fraud” lie. Regarding the latter, now that the damage has been done, the Washington Post has released a correction:

Democracy dies in darkness indeed.

As noted at Post Millennial,

The original story made national headlines after the paper falsely printed that Trump demanded that Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, “find the fraud.”

Many interpreted the statement as evidence that Trump was demanding that Republican officials make up cases of fraud in order to tilt the election in his favour, with some, including the Washington Post itself, arguing that it could amount to obstruction, an impeachable offense.

Now that we have a recording of the call, proving that Trump did not say this, can we reconsider the second impeachment, in which the fake quote was used?

No, we cannot. The lie has done its work, leaving an indelible impression.

The phone call was “corroborated” by CNN, which also published the remarks. Unlike the Washington Post, CNN has not corrected their stories on the matter.

Only CNN could rank below even the Washington Post in terms of responsibility and journalistic ethics.

I mean, only CNN and NBC:

NBC also claimed to have verified the false claim…

If anything good has come of the past year, it is that even a half-informed American now knows better than to trust the fanatical “mainstream” media. Unfortunately, thanks to that same media, those who are even half-informed may constitute a minority that can be safely ignored.
