NBC News and MSNBC had to issue major corrections to their “feds wiretapped Trump attorney Michael Cohen” story after that turned out to be untrue, and New York Magazine’s DC correspondent is concerned… that Trump will use that as further validation for his “fake news” accusations:

It’s actually a “shame” the mainstream media again didn’t know a story was true before publishing it, but for some obviously the real downside is that Trump’s slams on the media’s honesty and accuracy have been again proven justified.

It’s such a predictable approach.

Perish the thought!

NBC News and Nuzzi lost Piers Morgan over this one:

A little introspection on the part of the media might do them some good, but that’s not likely to happen.
