It’s Time The Peacock Went The Way Of Old Yeller

For NBC News, it was another in a series of embarrassments on Thursday as it had to correct a story saying federal investigators had placed a wiretap on the phone lines of President Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen.

As it was reported to Fox News, the FBI was just monitoring who was calling NOT the actual calls themselves…

NBC had attributed its original story to two anonymous sources with knowledge of the legal proceedings against Cohen. In an editor’s note preceding the rewritten story, NBC explains that three senior U.S. officials disputed the account, saying that the phones were monitored by a pen register, which records the phone numbers on both ends of the conversation, not the substance of the calls themselves.

NBC moved its original story online shortly after 1 p.m. on Thursday, and it became immediate fodder on MSNBC and other cable networks.

Well, it looks like it’s time we get rid of this Fake News Network. In case you didn’t know  NBC is currently dealing with unflattering stories involving sexual misconduct, secrecy, homophobia and bad decision-making, causing headaches for NBC and its news chairman, Andy Lack.

    “As it was reported to Fox News”…. Reported by whom? If it was the FBI, this is an agency which no longer has ANY credibility (and won’t until at least all of its supervisory personnel are fired.) That’s like the NSA garbage about “we have all of everyones (phone and email) information but we won’t look at it. At some point, folks simply must conclude that the American people canNOT trust the Amerikan government or, at a minimum must follow Reagans “trust but verify” advice when dealing with the swamp. The perpetual problem is “who watches the watchers”?
