Accuracy in Media

A new low for CNN: grasping for straws by insinuating that a single typo for an interview was symbolic of Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign in 2016. You can read a part of it below, or subject yourself to the entire article here.

Nearly two years ago the addition of an unintentional “r” helped CNN’s Brianna Keilar land a coveted sit-down interview with then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

There was only one problem: Clinton had actually wanted to speak with Yahoo! Finance’s Bianna Golodryga. But one of Clinton’s aides added a single consonant to Golodryga’s name in communicating with other staffers, and the rest is political history.

The error was revealed in a new book, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, which documents a campaign that was far from letter-perfect in many other ways as well.

    That makes lots of sense. Usually you schedule meetings by only looking at people’s first names, who cares about their last name or the company they work for ? I do that all the time, my boss says i need to meet Brian from telecom, and I randomly choose a Brian from one of the telecom companies my staffer recommends, happens all the time. This is beyond pathetic, like all the leftists and their fake news and their made up childish world
