Media Now Admits They Lied About Trump Committing Vote Fraud in Georgia

The Washington Post is now admitting that its “story” about how Trump told the state of Georgia to “find votes” for him was all fake news because the paper now says that the president never said any such thing.

You may recall the story in the aftermath of the 2020 election when the media claimed that Trump called Georgia’s Secretary of State demanding that she go out and manufacture enough votes to make sure he wins the Georgia election (which he lost).

The media also claimed that Trump told Sec. of State’s office investigator Frances Watson that she would “be a national hero” if she invented enough votes to help Trump win.

The media loudly accused Trump of trying to commit vote fraud.

But now the Post is admitting that the whole story was fake news.

On Monday, the paper quietly published this “correction”:

Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator,” The Post’s article now reads at the top of the story. “The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so.

Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find ‘dishonesty’ there,” the correction continued. “He also told her that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now.

Of course, the “correction” now is meaningless. The fake story already helped send two Democrats to the U.S. Senate from the Peach State.

The lie served its purpose. This was no “mistake.” Pushing this lie was the plan.

President Trump issued a statement slamming the Post for its “hoax” story and noted that these sort of “corrections” always reveal how biased the media is.

“You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way — against me and against Republicans,” Trump’s statement reads. “Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narrative are buried, ignored, of delayed until they can do the least harm.”

Trump is exactly right.
