Donald Trump Jr Responds To NPR Finally Retracting False Story About Him

Share:

In another example of why Americans increasingly distrust the establishment media to present factually sound, unbiased news, NPR published a report Friday claiming that Donald Trump Jr.’s testimony to Congress conflicted with the current claims of Michael Cohen about the “Moscow Trump Tower” deal discussions taking place in 2016.

After a number of reporters from various outlets called out NPR for reporting what was a verifiably false claim, the network finally issued a correction and deleted its original tweet — but not before the false report had permeated social media and made its way to CNN.

“This NPR story appears to be wrong. It notes that Trump Jr. told a Senate committee that a deal in Moscow died of ‘deal fatigue’ by 2014,” Bump explained. “But that was a deal with the Agalarovs. He was also asked if a deal was in the works in 2015/2016 and said yes.”

Trump Jr. has since responded to NPR’s belated correction.

“I guess this is as close as I’ll get to an apology where yet another ‘bombshell’ bites the dust,” he tweeted in response to the retraction. “Pro tip: don’t just rush to publish anything thinking that it’s the got ya you so desperately want it to be. CNN has the market cornered on that… let them own it.”- READ MORE
