WaPo Deletes Content Based on Debunked Steele Dossier

The Washington Post is in the midst of a significant cleanup effort.

The outlet just completed a mass-edit of content that had been based on the Steele dossier.

With indictments having come down against the main source, the publication is clearly trying to right the wrongs it reported in 2017 and 2019.

Delete, Delete, Delete

With the Steele dossier now completely discredited, major stories that WaPo broke that relied on the dossier must now be corrected.

Sadly, however, the corrections will do little to correct the perception those stories created at the time.

In the correction for the March 29, 2017, article, the editor’s note stated, “The original version of this article published on March 29, 2017, said that Sergei Millian was a source for parts of a dossier of unverified allegations against Donald Trump.

“That account has been contradicted by allegations contained in a federal indictment filed in November 2021 and undermined by further reporting by The Washington Post.

“As a result, portions of the story and an accompanying video have been removed and the headline has been changed.

“The original account was based on two people who spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide sensitive information.

“One of those people now says the new information ‘puts in grave doubt that Millian’ was a source for parts of the dossier. The other declined to comment.”

For the 2019 article, the editor also noted that any references in that article from the original 2017 report had been removed.

The real problem here is that the content inside that dossier had been contested from the outset, but the media was so intent on removing Trump from office that it just ignored the reports.

The correction is great, but as mentioned above, the damage has already been done.

  1. Corrupt VIGILANTE MEDIA! Freedom of the press to tell an unbiased story is so important to the American way of life! When and how can these people be held accountable? DO YOUR JOB!

    1. The damage has been done to the TRUMP Administration but Justice has not and these people need to be made accountable and prosecuted.

    1. Yes, this is not enough to correct the horrendous lies the WaPo printed aboutthe Trump administration.

    1. Somehow all these msm groups should be punished with strict action for all the lies they have spoken or printed.

  2. They need to have a public apology to the Republican Party, Donald Trump. It’s called slander. It was done on purpose just like constant accusation of racist to anyone that questions their policies if poison.

      1. Bob Woodward needs prison time. Period. Where his coverage of the real story of collusion on the Biden gang of thieves? Trump hating does not fully explain this totally evil man. Public humiliation on CNN, MSNBC., ABC, CBS and NBC will put some credibility back into these left leaning scum bags.

  3. A friend of mine was in sysops for the government and he said ,It does not matter what actually happens in any situation it totally matters what people think happened ,that’s wear the fake news come in .

  4. It’s rare for people to read corrections in the paper let alone acknowledge them. P a papers know this and count on that. Reading a paper these days is like believing everything you read on face book….don’t believe it. But then I don’t believe what comes out of the mouths of any elected official. It’s about greed and power.

  5. All Democrats are two face and all media is ran by democratic Liars and they are like the communist media in China they only let you know but they want you to know even though it’s a complete lie and you see right through it. Let’s get the Democrats and the rhinos out of power vote far Republican down the line in 2022 . Let us all take over the house and the Senate Republicans that will fight for our freedom

  6. Too little, too late. The election was already rigged and stolen from the best President this country has seen in years!
    Words are “like an arrow set in motion it cannot be taken back”. Damage already done, and boy is there a lot of damage!

  7. OK, NOW everybody has been exposed to the TRUTH and knows beyond any shadow of a doubt that the Liberals Lied and broke countless laws to get their way !!! WHO HAS BALLS ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT !!!! TALK IS CHEAP, LET’S SEE SOME ACTION, LOCK THESE LIBERAL CRIMINALS UP, SET UP FIRING SQUADS AND MAKE THEM PAY FOR THEIR CRIMINAL ACTIONS, JUST LIKE THEY DEMAND THAT WE MUST DO !!!
    HANG SOME OF THEM, SEND SOME TO GITMO, BUT DON’T JUST SET BACK AND ALLOW THEM TO GET AWAY WITH BREAKING THE LAWS OF THIS COUNTRY !!!! REPUBLICANS ARE SNIVELING COWARDS AND THE LIBERALS KNOW THAT THEY WILL NEVER BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE, THAT’S WHY THEY CONTINUE WITH THEIR CRIMINAL ACTS AND WILL NEVER STOP AS LONG AS WE ALLOW THEM TO GET AWAY WITH THEIR UNLAWFUL ACTS !!!!
    F**K JOE BIDEN, F**K LIBERAL CRIMINALS, and F**K YOU IF YOU AGREE WITH THEM !!! # LET’S GO BRANDON !!

  8. The WashingtonPost and their employees are unlikely to survive the first day of the 2ndAmericanCivil War

  9. When historians a hundred years from now look back, what will they be viewing? What really happened at the time, or the most recent revision adapted for whatever is the current spin? Just erase the real history. 1984 has truly arrived. George Orwell should be awarded for his prescience.

  10. Scumbag Washington Post. I never read it because it is all trash. They hide everything Democrat or Liberal. They are no better than CNN or any of the rest of the corrupt media

  11. Thank the Lord we still have a choice not to read their lies and take the WashPo. If you choose to read and let their lies twist your minds so be it. It is those that support it by buying and advertising with them.
