- Fanatical Trump Hater: “It’s Trump damn it! It’s on his advice to Obama. He’s guilty as hell. All the MSM are saying it! You must hate Trump. It is Anti Christian to support Trump. He’s the Anti-Christ!”
- For the record: I am neither a Trump Forever or Hater. If he does wrong I will point it out. If he does right I will also say so. He needs to throw quite alot of Illuminist Deep State SCUM in jail. I am getting tired of waiting.
- Wrong Narrative? AFP & Reuters Scrub Story about 100,000 Detained Migrant Children After UN Says It Happened on Obama’s Watch
Several news agencies have opted to delete a story stating that 100,000 migrant children were detained in US border facilities after the United Nations clarified that the number is years old, predating the age of Trump.
After media outlets published stories trumpeting the 100,000 figure earlier this week, based on the word of UN refugee specialist Manfred Nowak, the expert was forced to correct his initial statement on Tuesday. As it turns out, the figure Nowak cited to reporters dates back to 2015, meaning the dramatic number of detentions he revealed occurred under the watch of President Barack Obama, rather than Donald Trump, who is often assailed by progressive critics over his border policies.
Instead of issuing corrections, however, Nowak’s clarification prompted several outlets to withdraw their stories altogether, including Reuters and AFP, who both said no replacement story would be forthcoming.
At the time of publishing, AFP’s version of the story containing the outdated figure was still live on its website.
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
