The anti-Trump forces in America have pulled every trick in the book to destroy the President.
And the media have been willing participants.
But the Deep State’s latest attack on Trump just blew up in their faces.
Fake news has been a cornerstone of the conspiracy against the President.
Time after time, the media has run sensationalist stories about the Russia investigation, only to have them proven to be lies in less than a day.
That happened again when NBC ran a story claiming the government had wiretapped Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s phone.
They even reported a tantalizing detail that the spying had picked up a phone call that originated from the White House.
Journalists spent hours speculating wildly about what this meant and if Trump himself was caught on the wiretap.
But it was all a fake news hoax.
NBC was forced to retract the story and reveal that there was no wiretap.
All the government had was routine access to a phone log.
They were forced to issue this correction:
Earlier today, NBC News reported that there was a wiretap on the phones of Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal attorney, citing two separate sources with knowledge of the legal proceedings involving Cohen.
But three senior U.S. officials now dispute that, saying that the monitoring of Cohen’s phones was limited to a log of calls, known as a pen register, not a wiretap where investigators can actually listen to calls.
NBC News has changed the headline and revised parts of the original article.
The media runs stories like this on purpose.
Even if they are wrong, they can issue a correction to claim they are committed to the “truth”, yet knowing full well that it will not get nearly the coverage of the initial anti-Trump “bombshell.”
Just one metric on one platform, but @NBCNews' correction tweet got a quarter of the RTs of the original incorrect report.
There's no substitute for getting it right the first time.

This is a recurring pattern.
The media’s errors in the Trump/Russia/Mueller probe all run in one direction.
• NBC News falsely reported Trump's lawyer was wiretapped
• CNN falsely reported Trump's son colluded with WikiLeaks
• ABC News falsely reported Trump told Flynn to meet w/Russians during the campaign
• Bloomberg falsely reported Mueller issued subpoena targeting Trump allies

These fake news stories drive an anti-Trump narrative among Americans and then when the stories are corrected, it receives a fraction of the viral activity on social media.
Millions of Americans are left believing the initial stories which paint a picture of Trump as a criminal or on the verge of being driven from office in handcuffs by Robert Mueller.
Do you still trust the so-called “mainstream” media?
