On Monday, former President Donald Trump responded to The Washington Post making multiple massive corrections to their story that accused Trump of tampering with the Georgia elections, calling the Post’s claims a “hoax.”
The damning quotes from an unnamed “source,” that Washington Post now admits Trump did not make, were used by Democrats in his second impeachment trial.
The Washington Post corrected their bombshell story that originally claimed Trump pressured Georgia’s top elections investigator, Frances Watson, to “find the fraud” in his state’s election.
The Post also claimed that the then-president supposedly told her she would be “a national hero” if she found any discrepancies.
Actual audio of the call was published last week by The Wall Street Journal, which proved the Trump quotes were false.
The quotes were used against Trump during his second impeachment trial.
Obviously this is a major correction and story. This is no mere typo.
The Washington Post, which cited the quotes to one person who was an anonymous source, corrected their story Monday.
Trump’s statement read, “The Washington Post just issued a correction as to the contents of the incorrectly reported phone call I had with respect to voter fraud in the Great State of Georgia.”
“While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt a non-story, the original story was a Hoax, right from the very beginning,” Trump blasted.
The former President also noted that media bias seems to “slant one way.”
Trump added, “You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way—against me and against Republicans.”
“Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do the least harm—for example, after an election is over,” Trump wrote.
Trump said news coverage of the coronavirus vaccine was part of this bias.
Trump said, “Look no further than the negative coverage of the vaccine that preceded the election and the overdue celebration of the vaccine once the election had concluded.”
“A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press,” he continued. “This latest media travesty underscores that legacy media outlets should be regarded as political entities—not journalistic enterprises.”
Donald Trump then “thanked” the Post for its update to their story.
“In any event, I thank the Washington Post for the correction,” Trump wrote.
