What the heck is going on with the mainstream media?

Their desperation to over sensationalize the lackluster Russia probe is costing them any small bit of credibility they still had left!

New - York - Times - Scoop - Security

The New York Times got ahead of itself again with yet another supposedly hot scoop involving former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland, the Russians and the 2016 presidential election.

The story, now titled “McFarland’s Testimony About Russia Contacts Is Questioned,” reported originally that an email sent by the former Trump transition official indicated she lied to Congress this summer when she was questioned about disgraced Gen.

McFarland - Contradicted - Herself - Russia - Contacts

“Email Counters Aide on Flynn’s Russia Contact”

McFarland - Contradicted - Herself - Russia - Contacts

It then reverted to back to: “McFarland Contradicted Herself on Russia Contacts, Congressional Testimony Shows,” and then changed twice more:

“Email Counters Testimony On Flynn by Former Aide”

Former - Aide - Testimony - Russia - Is

“Former Aide’s Testimony On Russia Is Questioned”

Multiple headline changes are not the worst of it. Not by a long shot.

Version - Dec - Report - Lines

The original version of the Dec. 4 report began with the following lines:

An email sent during the transition by President Trump’s former deputy national security adviser, K.T. McFarland, appears to contradict the testimony she gave to Congress over the summer about contacts between the Russian ambassador and Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn.

Ms - McFarland - Lawmakers - Anything - Interactions

Ms. McFarland had told lawmakers that she did not discuss or know anything about interactions between Sergey I. Kislyak, who had been Moscow’s ambassador to the United States, and...
