#Fakenews outfit TIME, forced to issue a correction after false story

In a Dan Rather-esque ‘fake but accurate‘ manner Time Magazine has issued a retraction for their fake news story that liberal hand-wringers world wide republished and spread by social media.

The Daily Mail reports: Quote:

Time magazine has issued a correction to a controversial cover story about a Honduran migrant girl who they said was taken from her mother by US border patrol agents after it was revealed that the pair were never separated at all.

Three-year-old Yanela Denise became the unintentional face of the now defunct family separation crisis after photographer John Moore captured her agonized face screaming as her mother was questioned by agents on June 12.

After the picture was taken, the pair were taken together to a family detention center. Yanela’s father has since told DailyMail.com that they are ‘safe’.

As millions shared Yanela’s photograph on social media and attached to fundraisers for other children who have been separated from their families, Time used it on its cover.  The magazine photoshopped an image to place her at the foot of a towering Donald Trump and the words ‘Welcome to America’ appeared next to it.

In the story, despite Moore having told the magazine that he did not know what became of the girl after he took the picture, the journalist wrote that she had been taken away like the thousands of other children who have been.

Time issued its correction on Friday after US and Honduran officials, along with the girl’s father, confirmed that this was not the case.

‘The original version of this story misstated what happened to the girl in the photo after she (was) taken from the scene.

‘The girl was not carried away screaming by US Border Patrol agents; her mother picked her up and the two were taken away together,’ the magazine said.

Editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal stood by using the picture, saying that while Yanela herself may not have been taken by agents, the photograph and her desperation in it encapsulates the mood of the issue. End quote.

What a bunch of weasels. They can’t even bring themselves to admit they lied.

I’ve seen usually sensible people banging on about this as if it were true, then when confronted they run with the Dan Rather excuse too. Such is the dishonesty of the liberal media.

The real news is that the woman and child were illegal immigrants who were busted. The woman has been an illegal and deported alien before. The mother was never separated from the child, and the policy is Obama’s, not Trump’s. That doesn’t seem to stop dishonest people saying otherwise.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
