NY Times changed its original headline "Trump urges unity against racism" following backlash from the Left-Liberal twitter mob. Underlines most of the American media is just a mouthpiece for the Democrats.

Tom Brokaw has apologised for his reporting on Richard Jewell, the cop wrongly smeared for the 1996 Atlanta bombing. Comes as Clint Eastwoods movie "Richard Jewell" has just come out.

As mentioned therein, Brokaw also apologised at the time once Jewell was cleared and had noted he was still a suspect before cleared. The article also notes that NBC and others settled with Jewell rather than litigate.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (ACJ) that challenged his libel suit prevailed because they were reporting accurately.

I saw the Eastwood film. Paul Walter Hauser played Jewell outstandingly and the film competently showed how his personality, past and reactions raised the suspicions and how hunches can trigger confirmation bias.

The film, however, steps on its own message by smearing the late reporter Kathy Scruggs of the ACJ who isn't alive to defend herself. Eastwood presented her falsely as a heartless, malicious and sleazy tramp that screwed law enforcement officers for sensational leaks.

Eastwood is catching plenty of deserved heat for that. Even Lin Wood, Jewell's attorney in the ACJ libel case, has condemned it.

Like the Dad's army of Dem cheerliars that post here --they're never 'lying," just indulging in talk that should never be considered true.
