MSNBC Hack O’Donnell Retracts His Lie About Donald Trump’s Bank Loans With Russians

From Fox News

MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell kicked off his show Wednesday night by apologizing for running an unverified report that directly tied President Trump’s finances to Russia, which he retracted.

“Last night on this show, I discussed information that wasn’t ready for reporting,” O’Donnell said. “I repeated statements a single source told me about the president’s finances and loan documents with Deutsche Bank saying ‘if true’– as I discussed the information– was simply not good enough. I did not go through the rigorous verification and standards process here at MSNBC before repeating what I heard from my source. Had it gone through that process, I would not have been permitted to report it. I should not have said it on-air or post it on Twitter. I was wrong to do so.”

He went on to acknowledge the letter he and NBCUniversal received by Trump’s legal counsel demanding a retraction and an apology for the “aforementioned false and defamatory” reporting and threated to take legal action.

……On Tuesday night, O’Donnell and fellow far-left MSNBC host Rachel Maddow discussed how Trump was “able to obtain loans when no one else would loan him any money” when he tossed out the unverified speculation.

……The “Last Word” host and MSNBC were widely panned by critics for running the story, calling it “grossly irresponsible.” The White House blasted the report, pointing to “left-wing outlets” that have “weaponized the media.

“Rigorous verification and standards process”?  

Your network is comprised of rancid leftwing assclowns who belch bullshit. You never let facts get in the way of your agenda.

This was O’Donnell’s original claim:


MSNBC is just one of the leftwing media outlets that pushed the “Russian collusion” hoax, and has attacked President Trump since he announced his candidacy.

If you think their meltdown in 2016 was entertaining, just wait until he’s re-elected in 2020.
