FAKE NEWS alert! Election officials shred NBC report about extent of Russian hacking in 2016
The lead paragraph of a new NBC News story contains this info:
The U.S. official in charge of protecting American elections from hacking says the Russians successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several U.S. states prior to the 2016 presidential election.
A group of state officials took exception to what’s implied there:
An MSM outlet “misinterpreted” something? NO WAY!
The story itself isn’t exactly breaking news, but the way NBC News framed it was certainly taken issue with.
Maybe they’ll get it right next time. Or maybe not.
