CNN’s incredibly slow backpedal about the Covington kids story continues, and the spin is dizzying:
THUD: Brian Stelter shares take pinning Covington story on ‘America in 2019,’ trips HARD over ‘journalism in 2019’ https://t.co/j3IzdemS0c

CNN's Brian Stelter pushed the story about the media smearing the Covington Catholic High School students all the way to the bottom of his "newsletter."

Sharyl Attkisson’s memory was jogged by that one:
I didn’t see the kerfuffle—I was traveling—but it makes me remember the Ferguson policeman whose career/life were destroyed only to have Obama AG Holder find, a yr later, there was no evidence for “hands up don’t shoot” and it was likely fabricated by witness. #wasthereanapology https://t.co/mvRRmqlwA0

It isn’t that the media is expected to never make mistakes, but that they keep making similar ones over and over again, which might mean they’re not “mistakes” after all.
Exactly . . . "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" was another lie perpetrated by the Press. https://t.co/j3IdsdWacN

Not only was “Hands up, don’t shoot” not proven, it was disproven by the forensic report in the document released by the grand jury. Yet most of the press continued on with the narrative.

The whole situation is just terrible. The media is complicit in this nonsense.
