Politico essentially retracted the entirety of an article published last week reporting that President Donald Trump owed tens of millions to the Bank of China from a real estate deal brokered with the Trump Organization in 2012.
Politico reported the borrowed funds were scheduled to be paid back by 2022 in the piece headlined, “Trump owes tens of millions to the Bank of China – and the loan is due soon.”
Trump’s “tens of millons” in debt held by the bank however, is non-existent, and was sold off by the China-owned financial institution shortly after the deal. Even worse, Politico admitted their reporters never reached out to the bank to inquire about the loans.
“Politico received a statement from a representative for Bank of China USA, which had not been contacted beforehand, that the bank had sold off, or securitized, its debt shortly after the 2012 deal.” Politico wrote in an editor’s note. “A spokeswoman said the bank has no current financial interest in any Trump Organization properties.”
Great investigative reporting, Politico! ……NOT!
You might know how it was that Diamond & Silk got kicked out of Fox News.
They suggested someone do some INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING on the incredibly high number of coronavirus deaths being counted in some states.
Maybe, they suggested, these numbers are being inflated.
Maybe there’s money to be gained in doing just that.
So, instead of investigate, Fox News simply fired them.
Today I quit Fox News.
Maybe someday I’ll tell them, but why bother.
100 percent fed up.
Since most of thw M.S. Media gives is nothing but the usial Fake News why should we be surprised that its mostly Fake News
@Nan G: Cut the cord in 2012 no more cable 100 channels of crap. Then they hired Paul Ryan. Yes the numbers are highly inflated. Exactly how accurate are the tests, there are many different tests. You tube now pulls anything that goes against WHO recommendations, yes the same one that repeated Chinas propaganda as gospel.
Google, face book and cable tv are on my 100 % fed up list.
Opening up America no shirt no shoes no mask no service.
Where is Americas Straw that breaks the camels back?
Of course, the gullible idiots that believed the story still do because no one is reporting on the “mistake”.
Another example of a story sounding too “good” to be true but too “good” to pass up.
@Deplorable Me: #4
Yep. I’m reading comments on other websites from Lefties that still make the claim a week later.
If it weren’t for my webcomic, my time online nowadays would be measured in minutes. I’m sick of the hatred and lies.
@Petercat: Liberal media promotes their lies, then quietly “corrects” it without attempting to reverse the damage they’ve done. Anyone that thinks their primary mission isn’t to lie and support the Democrats is a complete idiot, and probably not even all that useful.
