STOP THE ATTACKS: The Media Was Just Caught In A MASSIVE Bias Scandal Over Trump’s Speech…This Is SICK

President Trump has been hammered non-stop for his comments on Tuesday condemning both white supremacists and “alt-left” groups at the Charlottesville rally. Reaffirming his belief that “both sides” were to blame for the violent clashes that resulted in the death of one woman, the president inflamed critics on the left and even some Republicans.

One line from his talk particularly incensed critics- “Okay, what about the alt-left that came charging at us?”- this would mean that President Trump was in some way identifying with white nationalist protestors.

Politico’s journalist Annie Karni pointed it out on Twitter: “Just noticed the use of “us” in this transcript.” From there it was noted by journalists from the New York Times, the Washington Post, and other media outlets:

Except…The transcript containing that dialogue was wrong. President Trump did not say “us”- he most likely said “’em.” After reviewing the transcript and the original video, Politico issued an update saying:

“Okay, what about the alt-left that came charging at [indiscernible] – excuse me – what about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?”

The update was also issued by some of the critics:

But the damage is done. For just one example, take a look at Maggie Haberman’s tweet of Trump using “us” versus her retraction tweet. The “us” tweet has 1,565 retweets and 2,844 likes, and the retraction has 406 retweets and 728 likes.

Ian Miles Cheong from the Daily Caller picked up the inconsistency early- listen to the original video yourself here:

It definitely does not sound like “charging at us.” The media just got caught- whether they did it on purpose would be hard to determine, but this small typo has fueled the flames of criticisms against the president, and it seems unlikely that many of his critics will see the error corrected.
