President Donald Trump crowed Friday morning that “NBC NEWS is wrong again” after the network was forced to issue a correction on reporting that initially said Trump’s longtime personal attorney had been the subject of a federal wiretap.
NBC News issued both on-air and online corrections to state that Michael Cohen, the attorney at the center of efforts to silence allegations of an affair between Trump and porn actress Stormy Daniels, had not been wiretapped but instead had been the target of a “pen register,” a monitoring of limited logs of telephone calls.
NBC NEWS is wrong again! They cite “sources” which are constantly wrong. Problem is, like so many others, the sources probably don’t exist, they are fabricated, fiction! NBC, my former home with the Apprentice, is now as bad as Fake News CNN. Sad!
