We have a statement from @OANN and to be honest, I’m not OK with it. One of the only things that made me scratch my head about the reporting from yesterday, was the fact that it was slipped in to a story as an afterthought. If what they are saying here is true (cont)
this is its own story. How did the team there allow this reporter to go on air with something like a Page/McCabe affair and not triple check this first? Why was there such a delay between the story being removed and this explanation? To me now this seems more like a (cont)
mistake than a story- especially since it has the potential for such wide ranging implications. I retweeted the clip because I’ve come to trust the hard work coming from @OANN- I would hate to have to take pause with their reporting from here on out. However, there’s positive!
As soon as @SidneyPowell1 stated that this was Fake News, our twitter family got to work telling everyone that it was. The left would NEVER do something like that. People issued their own retractions and they stayed focused on the truth - what a HUGE breath of fresh air!
We came together as a group to wait for more info and stopped newly sharing the incorrect info - and to me that’s the most awesome thing here. Look, everyone makes mistakes - I’ll make several more throughout my time as well. What’s most telling is how you handle them. (Cont)
IMO, what OANN just did isn’t handling a mistake. It’s slapping a bandaid on one and hoping that no one realizes it. And that’s a shame, because they’ve been doing some really good work. Hopefully they make the necessary improvements. Until then, they’ve lost some capital IMO.
