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.
