This morning the FBI released a statement about the hostage situation on Saturday at Congregation Beth Israel Synagogue in Colleyville, Texas that runs counter to previous comments in an Associated Press report:

An AP tweet yesterday that linked to a story quoting an FBI official said the following: “BREAKING: The FBI says the Texas synagogue hostage taker’s demands were specifically focused on issue not connected to the Jewish community.”

It’s looking like there was an initial attempt to set a narrative that nobody was buying because the backpedal has reached the point of tweets getting deleted:

So, a bit of “fake news” was originally put out there? What a shock.

The AP’s story quoted an FBI official as well, but it appears that the original attempts to set a false narrative was a massive fail.

Modern “journalism” involves passing along whatever the media’s told without question (unless the info is coming from select Republicans).

Yep, it never fails!
