The Steele Dossier, which the liberal media used relentlessly to smear Trump for four years, has completely fallen apart.
Many people in media likely knew it was garbage from the start, but that didn’t stop them from reporting on it endlessly.
Over at the liberal Washington Post, they are scrubbing multiple reports, adding edits and notes to articles so they won’t look like fools as time goes on and people refer back to their false reportage.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Washington Post edits and adds editor’s notes to at least a dozen Steele dossier stories
The Washington Post has amended at least a dozen reports investigating the genesis and fallout of the Steele dossier, an opposition research project that is almost certainly a work of total fiction if not Russian counterintelligence propaganda.
Two articles in particular, one from 2017 and one from 2019 , have undergone significant edits, with major portions of the reporting removed entirely. Both stories also bear lengthy editor’s notes.
The 2017 story, titled originally, “Who is ‘Source D’? The man said to be behind the Trump-Russia dossier’s most salacious claim,” identified businessman Sergei Millian as a key source for the dossier. Millian, for his part, adamantly denies contributing to the effort to collect dirt on former President Donald Trump.
The 2017 Washington Post article has been amended to remove the assertion that Millian served as a source for the dossier. A video summarizing the report’s original topline has also been removed. The headline likewise has been changed so that it now reads, “Sergei Millian: High-level access to Trump or unwitting bystander?”
Does the Washington Post think no one has noticed this?
RT this – don't let it get buried
On Friday, @WashingtonPost removed major portions and made substantive corrections to two big stories about the “Steele dossier,” Executive editor SALLY BUZBEE said the paper could NO LONGER stand by the ACCURACY of those elements of the story.

While the Washington Post has been forced to take the drastic step of effectively retracting two major articles involving the Steele Dossier, don't expect this to prompt much wider reflection about the journalistic failures of Russiagate. Because that'd indict the entire industry

The media lied to advance a political narrative. No one should ever let them forget it.
