    Default Fake news

    This post is meant to illustrate that all sides may project what is known as "fake, or false" news from time to time.
    This isn't the "alternative" facts either, simply a news outlet that pumped out a false story.

    The office of the Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau has forced Fox News to apologise and retract a “false and misleading” tweet that inaccurately described the suspect in the Québec City mosque shooting as a man of Moroccan origin.

    Kate Purchase, the director of communications for the prime minister’s office, sent a letter to Fox News objecting to misinformation it had put out after the attack on the Québec City Islamic cultural center.
    The Fox News tweet made no mention of the other man arrested, French-Canadian Alexandre Bissonnette, who now faces six charges of first-degree murder and five of attempted murder. Those who know Bissonnette have described him as pro-Donald Trump, anti-immigration and sympathetic to the far right.
    Hours after it was made clear that Bissonnette was the only suspect in the case, the “false and misleading” tweet was still on the Fox News Twitter account and remained in circulation.
    Within hours, Fox News apologised for the error. “FoxNews.com initially corrected the misreported information with a tweet and an update to the story on Monday. The earlier tweets have now been deleted,” Refet Kaplan, the managing director at FoxNews.com, said in a statement. “We regret the error.”
    Now they regret the error.
    So Fox news does exactly what a few people seem to say they don't do ...

    My comments are this.
    The right, as clearly demonstrated, can be violent, deadly and racist.
    Secondly, the news outlet that is always "right", apparently isn't.

    The difference here is that FoxNews does apologize .. Does CNN or any of the other mainstream media outlets follow suit?? Not all the time.. Now don't take this as I am not sticking up for Foxnews but just making a point.. Another example is the New York Times,they run with a story before getting all the facts because they want to be first to get it out there and it is all over the front pages of every newspaper and internet website BUT when proven to be false your lucky to get a detraction and usually it will be on page 12 or the bottom of a website..

    Sorry ... I read spin.

    I might add, after they have already incited the right wing radicals just a little more.

    Now what I did find is plenty of information regarding the Mosque you noted set ablaze by a Muslum reported by non other than Bannon's truth seeking Breitbart while the two incidents in January 2017 missed their radar.

    And the left is no different??? Or is just that their intent is to brainwash the libs.. You could say that a good majority of the bullsh*t at the airports over the weekend was in way to how Trumps ban on people coming from seven war torn nations.. Media went into a full blitz that it was a Muslim ban and failed to say the seven countries that were part of it were put forward from the "OBAMA" administration.. If Obama had done this do you think there would have been protestors ??? Or would it have been racist??

    Trump stepped in crap big time and really didn't need anyone to point it out. I sure wish Crazy would have saved some safety pins for the Trumpster's.

    Your still spinning. The thread was only meant to show FAUX news does the same thing. Nothing more.
    See how much you are attempting to shift the blame.

    However, I expected the proverbial spin machine to crank up and blame the left for the issue.

    BTW ... here is an apology from CNN reporter about a story.
    If you read the story, you will also find that FAUX news issued 2 on-air corrections for stories they presented.
