MSM simply can’t help it — they lie even when the world knows the truth

NYT reporter who called Sessions corrupt forced to correct statement: Actually, he meant Loretta Lynch

New York Times Washington Editor Jonathan Weisman was forced to retract a tweet Thursday after he insinuated Attorney General Jeff Sessions was corrupt.

Weisman asserted that former FBI Director James Comey testified Sessions asked him directly to call the Russia probe “a matter.” The only problem was the director testified that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch approached him with that request over the Clinton investigation, according to The Washington Times.


“At one point the attorney general directed me not to call it an ‘investigation’ but instead to call it a ‘matter,’ which confused me and concerned me,” Comey said about Lynch during his testimony in front of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “That was one of the bricks in the load that leads me to conclude I have to step away from the department if we are to close this case credibly.”

The director went on to add that the language suggested by the former attorney general mirrored that of the Clinton campaign during the 2016 election, leading him to believe that Lynch shouldn’t be a part of the investigation.

Washington Free Beacon reporter Alex Griswold caught Weisman’s mistake, reminding the editor of the highly influential New York Times that the statement was made about Lynch, not Sessions.

Griswold asserted that the editor privately apologized before deleting the tweet.

An honest mistake and he apologized, but funny how we can all manage to mishear so badly– and hear exactly what we want to hear.

Weisman didn’t immediately return a request for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation.



Oh what webs we weave when we start down that path to deceive…. LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ALREADY BURNING…………..

The MSM and in particular this group really need to get rid of all their reporters and start over (maybe hire older employees who have given up on finding jobs but actually have smarts and work ethics). Pitiful…

    I have always said if the 9/11 hijacker/Arab Muslim terrorists wanted to make a statement, one of them should have “landed” on the Slimes.

    The NYT cannot “start over” with new reporters because the Times’ editorial stance is dictated by its owners, the Sulzberger family. These people are prototypical secular leftist Jews, the sort of Jews who hate Israel for its success in a region dominated by failing Muslim regimes.
