ABC News FORCED TO APOLOGIZE: Twisted Bush Spokesman’s Words Into FALSE ATTACK On Sean Spicer

Here’s a classic example of how the media lies: Former Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer offered comments on Trump spokesman Sean Spicer and ABC News cherry-picked his words to make it sound like an attack.

ABC News Apologizes After Editing Former Bush Spox’s Praise of Sean Spicer to Sound Like Attack

ABC News apologized Tuesday after the Monday night edition of Nightline edited a quote from former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer in a way that made it appear that he was more critical of current White House press secretary Sean Spicer than he actually was.

“[Spicer’s] briefing made me uncomfortable. It was too truculent, too tough. It looks as if the ball was dropped on Saturday,” Nightline quoted Fleischer as saying.

Fleischer broke it down on Twitter:

ABC News was ultimately forced to apologize:

Nightline Correction

Nightline aired a segment Monday night about the first three days of the new administration including Sean Spicer’s statement to the press on Saturday. As part of the report, we interviewed former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer. In editing the piece for air, his quote was shortened and as a result his opinions mischaracterized. We are fixing the piece online to include his full quote and context. We apologize and regret the error.

This is our biased media, folks.

Only when they get caught and called out do they admit what they do all the time.
