NBC was caught red-handed peddling fake news to destroy Trump
CNN is the king of fake news.
But now they have some competition.
NBC reported fake news in attempt to discredit President Trump and ended up with egg on their face.
NBC reported that according to anonymous sources, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen had been wiretapped by the FBI.
The fake news media took this report and ran with it because it played perfectly into their narrative to destroy Trump by pushing the Stormy Daniels non-story.
But just hours after blasting this nationwide, NBC was forced to issue a major correction.
Tom Winter, reporter from NBC “News” who initially broke the story tweeted:
Correction: Earlier today NBC News, and this reporter, said that Michael Cohen’s phone lines were wiretapped. 3 Senior U.S. Officials now dispute that, saying the monitoring was limited to a log of calls (pen register) not a wiretap of Cohen’s lines. We will continue to report.
Instead of listening to the content of all of Cohen’s calls, the FBI simply had a log of who he called and when.
President Trump fired back.
NBC NEWS is wrong again! They cite “sources” which are constantly wrong. Problem is, like so many others, the sources probably don’t exist, they are fabricated, fiction! NBC, my former home with the Apprentice, is now as bad as Fake News CNN. Sad!

People make mistakes.
But major media outlets have let their bias against Trump cloud their judgment.
It may be plausible that this was just a simple mistake, but we never see “mistakes” that paint President Trump in a positive light.
The fake news industrial complex jumps at every chance it can get to “resist” President Trump.
