The Associated Press (AP), a mainstay of the mainstream media for generations, was forced to delete a tweet and issue a correction after providing false information about today’s hearing in the ongoing House impeachment inquiry.
“Contradicting the testimony of his own ambassador, President Trump says he wanted ‘nothing’ from Ukraine and says the #ImpeechmentHearings should be brought to an end,” the AP wrote in a Tweet on Wednesday.
The original tweet can be seen here:
However, what the AP published was factually incorrect because Trump was merely referencing what U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland testified before Congress.
“I finally called the president… I believe I just asked him an open-ended question, Mr. Chairman,” Sondland said to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). “What do you want from Ukraine? I keep hearing all these different ideas and theories and this and that. What do you want?”
“It was a very short abrupt conversation, he was not in a good mood, and he just said, ‘I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky to do the right thing,’ something to that effect,” Sondland added.
Trump basically echoed Sondland’s comments when he talked to the press after the hearings concluded.
“Here’s my response that he gave—just gave. Ready? You have the cameras rolling? ‘I want nothing.’ ‘That’s what I want from Ukraine.’ That’s what I said. ‘I want nothing.’ I said it twice,” Trump said.
“Now, if you weren’t fake news, you’d cover it properly,” he added.
AP eventually released a tweet owning up to their mistake.
“An earlier tweet that didn’t make clear that President Trump was quoting from Gordon Sondland’s testimony in which he was quoting Trump has been deleted,” they wrote.
The AP is not alone in trying to spin the hearing against Trump. Other fake news entities are working overtime trying to bias the public against the President as well.

However, the public is not buying it as Trump’s approval ratings soar in key battleground states as the Democrats double and triple down on their witch hunt against the President:
Support for impeachment has slipped in Wisconsin, according to Wednesday’s Marquette University Law School Poll.
And for the first time, President Donald Trump has surged ahead of all four top Democratic rivals in potential head-to-head matchups.
Just 40% of Wisconsin registered voters believe Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 53% disagreed, according to the survey.
The fake news is no longer able to prop up the Democrats’ impeachment efforts with their false and misleading reporting.
Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
