Reuters Deletes Story Meant to Make Trump Look Bad After Realizing it Made Obama Look Bad
Amazing how that happens
Reuters completely deleted a wire story concerning the number of children in migrant detention centers after discovering that the author’s figures were from 2015 and do not reflect the current number of children in such centers.
Adding an editor’s note or something of the like was tossed for a complete revocation, which is always last and worst case scenario in the news world. And yet…
(Reuters) – A Nov. 18 story headlined “U.S. has world’s highest rate of children in detention -U.N. study” is withdrawn. The United Nations issued a statement on Nov. 19 saying the number was not current but was for the year 2015. No replacement story will be issued.
Wire stores are republished a gazillion times over by various news agencies, including AFP.
AFP is withdrawing this story.
The author of the report has clarified that his figures do not represent the number of children currently in migration-related US detention, but the total number of children in migration-related US detention in 2015.
We will delete the story. https://t.co/p30UjEWl7u

Amazing that Trump was able to lock up that many kids when Obama was president. Truly the most powerful man of our time. https://t.co/sv2K2LV2Bu

Good thing the story has been captured.

to the full extent allowed by law.
So typical. They ain’t reporters, they’re just democrat activists.
It was probably another attempt at parody but nobody got it so they deleted it. Yeah, that’s it. A parody.
When anyone tries to claim there is no bias in the media just point them to this story, and drop your mic.
We are blessed to have this man who himself is blessed to have such strong mental health to be able to withstand this constant, withering crossfire from the left.
This image captures it,
They’re not really after me
They really are after you
I’m just in their way
Thank you! I am going to post the Trump quote on FB, and I’ve been sure to save it to my device first.
Reinforcing the point made by Nunes just yesterday.
“Wire stores are republished a gazillion times over by various news agencies, including AFP.”
A lie will travel around the world many times before the truth can tie on its shoes.
IE: it was deliberate.
Proof that the Memory Hole does exist!
Why anyone believes and/or cites the AP, AFP, Reuters, the Slimes or the Compost is beyond me. These are simply untrustworthy sites that should be ignored. At this time I don’t even trust the page numbers in the Slimes and the Compost.
Those darn calendars, tricky stuff. Its good to be aware, at least sober.
Anyone think we’re still one country? Because it looks to me like they’re not pretending anymore.
Same thing happened in 2018 with all the court cases and allegations of child abuse. All the reports were from 2015.
Reuters went corrupt 20 years ago.
