They Need to Retract the Entire Series

WaPo Issues Major Corrections To Reports On Steele Dossier | The Daily Wire

The Post rewrote parts of stories published in March 2017 and February 2019, removing claims in the stories that the Steele dossier’s “Source D,” who is responsible for some of the most salacious and outrageous claims in the document, is Belarusian American businessman Sergei Millian.

“The newspaper’s executive editor, Sally Buzbee, said The Post could no longer stand by the accuracy of those elements of the story,” the Washington Post reported, in a separate story on the changes it made. “The story’s headline was amended, sections identifying Millian as the source were removed, and an accompanying video summarizing the article was eliminated. An editor’s note explaining the changes was added. Other stories that made the same assertion were corrected as well.”

“The Post’s decision to edit and repost the Millian stories is highly unusual in the news industry,” the Post added.

Durham’s indictments have made these stories unsupportable. But don’t worry. They’ll stick with them as long as they can. And it doesn’t matter now, anyway. The stories accomplished their purpose, which was to hinder and weaken President Donald Trump (R-USA). And the corrections won’t get much publicity. People will continue to think that Trump colluded with the Russians.
