That’s aged like fine milk left out in the summer sun. In fact, NPR and other “journalists” didn’t want to “waste their time” on something that wasn’t helpful to the Democrat nominee heading into a presidential election.

“Misinformation” seems to be a one-way street and spreading it around is just fine as long as the people doing it are on the “correct” political side.
Just your daily reminder that a publicly funded news source hid the news that everyone now knows was completely true. https://t.co/Sckl62BUBt

NPR did their part as they saw it (and as the Dems saw it) so to them it was a job well done.
