Washington Post’s Slimy Anti-Trump Tactic Exposed

Michael Fleischhacker, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons

During the 2020 hotly contested election recounts in Georgia, the Washington Post published a story that alleged Trump was essentially asking Georgia election officials to rig the results of the recount in his favor.

The story quoted then-President Trump as telling a Georgia election official to “find the fraud” and that he would be a “national hero” if he did.

The Washington Post now has issued a major correction to the story which is conveniently veiled behind a paywall:

“Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to “find the fraud” or say she would be a “national hero” if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find “dishonesty” there. He also told her that she had “the most important job in the country right now.” A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.”

The nefarious thing about this retraction is that the phone call where the supposed comments took place was recorded so the reporter – and likely the Washington Post editors – either did not hear the alleged comments but chose to run them without verifying them or chose to grossly misrepresent then-President Trump’s comments to create the narrative that he was asking Georgia election officials to cheat on his behalf.

WATCH the raw video of Trump’s call:

President Trump released a statement about the Washington Post retraction and doubled down on claims the election in Georgia was rigged against him.

“The Washington Post just issued a correction as to the contents of the incorrectly reported phone call I had with respect to voter fraud in the Great State of Georgia. While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt a non-story, the original story was a hoax, right from the beginning I would further appreciate a strong investigation into Fulton County, Georgia, and the Stacy Abrams political machine which, I believe would totally change the course of the presidential election in Georgia.

Fulton County has not been properly audited for vote or signature verification. They only looked at areas of the state where there would most likely be few problems, and even there they found large numbers of mistakes. We are seeking to find and reveal the large-scale election fraud which took place in Georgia. Many residents agree, and their anger caused them not to turn out and vote for two Republican senators in the January election.

The Consent Decree signed between Raffensperger and Stacey Abrams was not approved by the Georgia State legislature, and therefore should be deemed invalid, and the election result changed why the Governor and Raffensperger ever approved this Consent Decree is one of the great questions? We look forward to an answer.

You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way—against me and against Republicans. Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do the least harm – for example, after an election is over. Look no further than the negative coverage of the vaccine that preceded the election and the overdue celebration of the vaccine once the election had concluded. A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press. This latest media travesty underscores that legacy media outlets should be regarded as political entities – not journalistic enterprises. In any event, I thank the Washington Post for the correction.”



    1. On the liberal side of news, which are most newspapers and the main liberal TV news stations, you’ll never see anyone being fired. Politicians and the liberal media never reporting accurate news. Sloppy work, never verifying anything yet they jack up stories thinking nobody cares about truth. If they worked for me I’d fire their asses if they weren’t accurate and truthful. Time to run these idiots out of business.

      1. Wa Poo Poo seems to have a backer with deep pockets because it seems obvious they are not gaining but losing subscribers. No conservative of the 75 million is unaware of the fake news.

          1. got that right. there are so many billionaires controlling information flow the middle American people haven’t got a chance You think the democrats will tax those people? not a chance there are only two classes of Americans any more The haves and the have nots. There is no middle any more

          1. Please tell me who they are, President Trump did not even take a salary in the four years he served, I believe he did a better job than those whom we paid to lead our country

      2. In the old days yes you were accountable. But the way our congress runs things not for now. But watch and see for the light is just coming up on the rise

    2. america needs a real big Boston tea party for the 4 th of July,,,,tar and feather every rino and demorats,,,all guilty of treason and they must recieve their punishment that the law allows

      1. I’m afraid with the way things are going in our country right now it’s really not going to matter soon. This country is going to be unrecognizable as we know it. Not only our enemies within but outside our country that Biden is playing pussy foot with will show him who’s boss. We’ll need another Tea Party soon!!

    3. Whoever “fabricated” the lies will probably get a big raise along with a promotion. Just like they did back in 2018 – an excerpt from a story published a few years ago:

      Let’s not forget that The Washington Post and The New York Times won the 2018 Pultizer Prize for their national reporting of President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia. They were awarded $15,000 in a joint prize.

      The “award winning” journalists include Maggie Haberman, Jo Becker, Matt Apuzzo and Mark Mazetti from The Times and Rosalind Helderman, Tom Hamburger, Ellen Nakashima, Adam Entous and Greg Miller from WaPo.

      They received the award “For deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage in the public interest that dramatically furthered the nation’s understanding of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign, the President-elect’s transition team and his eventual administration……..

      1. Thank you, for this information, and these people have no shame. Now we are stuck with the worst administration in our history, including both Carter and Obama, and that is a tough one to beat. And we’re only a few weeks out.

      2. Perhaps the Pulitzer Prize meant something once upon a time, but now it is just a tool to back lib thinking. My how things have changed!

    4. Of course not.
      The media does not even fire people who claim voter fraud when they have no evidence.

      1. They don’t dare to fire anyone when they claim voter fraud, because they know that it is true, and if they are taken to court for such a firing they are going to lose big time.

      2. Keep pushing the” no evidence” narrative… It’s working. 3 more people called in to say they now believe it, thanks to you…

      3. I don’t know about others, but for sure many who signed affidavits of their very experience of fraud, have not been charged with perjury. I was not there but do know that laws were broken in my state..so this is the reason no one is charged the power behind our last election wants to “hush” it all up.

    5. I firmly believe all the leftist media t.v. Newspaper etc will be gone in due time. They have all hunch themselves. This includes all leftists. It will be a wave that will have all of them running. God will prevail backing Trump just watch and see. There will be no witch hunts. It will be like a tornado that sweeps (All) the slim out.

    6. Not fired – not even investigated! The leadership (Kemp, GA State Legislators) need to step up and hold accountable those (Fulton Co. poll workers) who undermined the election and have a forensic investigation of the Dominion machines. SOS Raffensperger, Abrams (not an elected official!) disenfranchised MY vote and compromised the entire election. They must be held accountable.

    1. To expose the vote cheating and take measurers so it doesn’t happen again, that’s why! What side are you on, mbh?

    2. The goal should be a recall of the Georgia senate election because that article coming out in all the MSM a week before the senate runoff, most definitely swayed voters to vote against the republicans or not come out and vote, as it made Trump and republicans look like they endorsed cheating. Where’s the lawsuit on this fake propaganda news for election interference? Who did the article and what editor approved it without verification? They both should be fired and we need to start a cancel culture on WaPoo to bankrupt their dirty asses and any other news organization that went along with this farce! This

      1. Yes cancel culture on the journalists responsible plus the WP
        would be a real good start, give them a taste of the other side and make them suffer some!!

    1. Don’t have to be fired, just 75 million not reading, watching, buying their crap is enough. Owner has to be boosting their payroll because they are failing to support themselves. Sad times, this used to be a good news outlet. Is this a Bezo, Bloomboy or Soro’s owned paper of some other billionaire for the left?

      1. Bezo bought it in 2013 for 250 million. When big tech is so rich they purchase newspapers and print propaganda to sway elections, then we have a serious serious problem in our country.

  1. In my view, the most devastating effect of last year’s colossal voter fraud-fest was it damaged the entire population’s trust in government and big media. In turn, that will damage the people’s willingness to comply with unpopular regulations and laws. Many hope to avenge the pain they now feel for having been cheated.

  2. LISTEN UP…The FAKE NEWS have been TRASHING DJ TRUMP for YRS. ISN’T it TIME for THEM to A MEND Their WAYS and BeCOME the REAL NEWS. REPORTERS have DIED by TERRORISTS Reporting REAL NEWS. LET NOT Their DEATHS…Be in VAIN. From SamuraiQueen. 😄😄😄

  3. So What? It’s not like the rag and/or someone will get sued or fired or both. A little late for this to surface. And the lies can roll on without any repercussions.

  4. It’s uncanny, every time they make a mistake in reporting something on Trump it is always to the negative, and somehow they make mistakes to the positive for all Democrats they cover, it is AMAZING! No one at WaPo ever questions this pattern either, it is awesome.

  5. American people need to protest T every news outlet in this country about fake news& let the politicians keep running their mouths. The fake press is the real problem in this country, get rid of them & we will get our country back

  6. This all started with Adam Schiff standing on the floor of congress and boldface lie about a written recorded telephone transcript on the floor of congress without so much as a reprimand. Elected officials and MSM hold themselves above accountability.

    1. Pelosi does not call for censures for dishonesty, she rewards her liars for a job well done…..in her corrupt world!

  7. The Washington Post should be thoroughly ashamed of itself for its more than a little slimy-antiTrump-tactic! If the WP thinks its done a favour for anyone they’ve really lost their marbles!
    Recind if possible!!!

  8. Watch np news media. They all lie brain washing ignorant democrats that cant research the yruth. Kemp stacey abrahms and SOS all helped in this massive fraud. Time to arrest and prosecute them all iin every state that allowed fraud.

  9. WaPo, NYT, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC etc. are all part of the current Democrat cabal. New York Times published an article by Molly Bash that proudly laid out in detail how the conspiracy worked. Her words “a well funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information, they were not rigging the election they were fortifying it.” “a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes between “left-wing activists and business titans” that assured that “forces of labor came together with the forces of capital…” “The pact was formalized in a terse, little noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO published on election day.”
    There is nothing accidental about what happened, nothing accidental about what is happening. The heinous Executive Orders by Biden and the bills being put forth by Democrats are condoned by the swamp that is controlled by the Chamber of Commerce.
    The most important thing we can do is pay ATTENTION to your local candidates before the primaries. Know who they are, learn who is financing them and where they stand on issues like how your state’s elections are run and how they approach enforcing your laws. Second-call, write or email your representatives, Democrat or Republican, and make sure they know you are NOT happy. Be civil and polite but make it known that you see what’s happening and do not approve.

  10. ‘Caught’?! You’ve got to be kidding! If it was the news, and it was about Trump, they’ve been lying for well over 4 years! No need to ‘Catch’ them. Everyone knows it.

  11. These comments are self explanatory! From proud Americans, who can see how their country are being distorted by a swamp! Comparing of what it was, the example of the world! Kudos to DJT whose stamina endured the most vicious attack against him!

  12. Hey, guys. “WE” used to have FREE PRESS! NOW ALL “WE” HAVE IS PROPAGANDA! ALL “MEDIA” is controlled by major networks, major “newspapers”, ALL written by the SAME PEOPLE, under the”guise” of “news”. Internet is WORSE! SO! “HOW” can we find out “the TRUTH”? At this point it’s One America News & Newsmax. Sad to say, THAT’S IT! I “remember’ Cronkite, Mudd, Huntley/ Brinkly & EVERY “news channel” had “different news. TODAY “it’s” all scripted to the same STUFF! I’d just BET my bottom dollar that “ALL OF IT” is financed by the Dems!

  13. Now after the damage has been done, you come forward with a correction to your slanderous article. Trump should sue you for defamation of character.

  14. Somehow the retarded Demo RATS think that the TRUTH is more deadly than a Nuclear Weapon! You cannot speak the truth on any social media site or you are completely and permanently banned for life! A con artist used a fake disease to steal an Election, they refuse to give up on the fake disease Covid-19 because they hide behind it and steal our rights away from us 1 at a time until we have absolutely no rights at all! I personally died 8 times during Desert Storm for a country I loved at the time, these jack asses in suits have never EARNED 1 single right they have enjoyed for decades, now in their retarded minds they feel as if they have the right to steal any and all of my personal rights I have earned away from me! News flash Demo RAT idiots New Zealand had to announce that the Cornavirus was nothing more than a Propaganda Campaign to their citizens, that no one ever died of Coronavirus in New Zealand dispite what the media there has stated! In my investigation the findings are very similar here in America Throw the masks away and crack open all Dominion voting machines of the 6 that have been opened showing 76% to 84% FRAUD it is long past time for the TRUTH to be SPOKEN and the fraud in chief took out of office and replaced by our President Donald J Trump!

  15. Then they need to be fined so big that they have to shut the doors. I’m so sick of this left crap. Most ppl are and I see a big fight coming b4 they deplete our army and bring in foreign armies.

  16. We already know that the main stream media is nothing more than a collection of lying, scheming, dishonest P’sOS who try to pass themselves off as respectable “journalists!”

  17. You’re disgusting and a lying rag of crap! You’re not forgivin and you should be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I pray you get what you deserve.

  18. It’s so ingrained in their DNA to lie to serve their selfish hate, they don’t care about our country or us. They hope we are stupid, helpless to object the lies they tell. Dishonest media creates dishonest outcomes.

  19. You have to meet these employees of the Washington Post. They are not normal. They all, and I mean all, cheat on their wives or husbands. They spend most of their day in bars or alleys. They actually think that they are something special. I agree with the ‘special’ self-thought. More like ‘special’ classes for extremely illiterate people.

  20. The Washington Post and those like this so called news outlet continue their disgracful tactics and nothing happens to the person/s who write there lies. Does anyone believe in the truth in this country any more? I’m waiting for the next step in America! Rewrite the dictionary!!!

  21. Just one more fake news article published by the disgusting media against the greatest President in America’s history.
    What a shame, the greatest fraud in history has been orchestrated and assisted so that Pelosi, Schumer, Harris and the cabal behind them can totally destroy the country. People really should storm these media companies and pull the people out and try them in the public square.

    For every fake news article (Russia collusion etc onwards) that the individual has pushed, they gain a demerit point and any achieving 5 points gets punished, flogged in the public square in front of everyone (like the old days, what a great spectacle at last.

  22. A little late with their retraction. The damage has been done. But that was the whole point. They didn’t verify their source or the information and didn’t care. The Washington Post may be ok for want adds and announcements but is worthless for honest news reporting.

  23. These publishers are lying pigs. Who would bother to waste one penny on their lying crap. If your that desperate just go get some fiction from the library they have mire choices and you kniw its not real and heck it’s free.

  24. Nobody trusts click-bait media and have not trusted them since they whitewashed Slick Willy, Mr. Corpse-man and now President Puppet. They cheated in broad daylight, under bright lights and on television. They’ve become adept at covering up their coverups.

  25. Fake news as always for the benefit of the corruption going on the Democratic Party and their leaders . God forbid the Washington Post and others face news outlets actually report the truth and inform the people of the corruption going on without preferential treatment . Journalism is dead there’s not a journalist with integrity to report and inform the people with truth without taking sides or reporting on their own favorite party or their own personal opinions .

  26. When the Republicans gain the majority in Congress in 2022 (Lord, make it so!) we must without fail get laws passed for “media accountability” with stiff fines and prison time for false media, printed or spoken! Unless and until MSM is made responsible and punished for lies and false reporting…..we can expect it to continue!

  27. sickening is the only way to characterize today’s media. The fact that the Washington Post is owned by another anti-Trump slimeball might have something to do with that

  28. As the New York Times,The Boston Globe and The Washington Post they are all rag sheets and the only thing they are good for is to start a fire in my fireplace,I don’t know
    of anyone who reads these worthless papers.

  29. WELL PEOPLE IT IS TIME FOR THE WA PO TO LEARN A HARD LESSON . EITHER THEY START TELLING THE TRUTH AND REPORTING THE TRUTH OR THEY WILL LOSE BIG TIME CUSTOMERS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.. WE ARE SICK AND TIRED FOR TE DAMN LIES FROM NEWSPAPERS AND SILCON VALLEY CRAP AND ZUCKER BERG AND THAT OTHER GUY.. MAKE THEY PAY PEOPLE. -THAT IS THE ONLY WAY TO TEACH THEM -HIT THEIR CHECKBOOK.

  30. The Washington Post lied? I am shocked, as shocked a Claude Rains in “Casablanca” Their motto is “democracy dies in darkness”. It is also their plan to supply that darkness.

  31. It was Raffensberger who wouldn’t let the facts be known. They wiped the Dominion machines so data couldn’t be forensically checked. They should have given the results of the audit but Raffensberger wouldn’t release them. This election was stolen and there will be hell to pay someday.

  32. I wonder if any of us “We the People” did any of the crap that all these bigwigs, Dems, Reps, former Presidents, etc if we did like they are doing and deny all the way to the court would we get away with it? No, we wouldn’t so why in God’s name are these corrupt criminals getting away with it? NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!!! Not even governments!!

    1. Unfortunately Trump didn’t have time to put more Constitutional judges on the bench so we have liberal judges who ignore Article VI which is a law for federal power and judicial duty. The rouge judges take an oath to uphold the Constitution but they are above the law and legislate THEIR law even though they are not ELECTED officials. My niece works for the county schools and she had to take the loyalty oath. Wonder what would happen if she broke it.

  33. Well in days of old the buck stopped at the top. In this case there are many tops. First. the individuals involved should be dealt with singularly, fired, fines, loosing credentials etc. The owner, publisher and leaders of the paper and news media also are guilty. They should loose their licenses, credentials, huge fine, and on and on. There are many to include but it is too horrible to ignore as it leads the citizens and should be judged. As for the politicians, ah, a totally different story. Their job is so sacred and critical that they are asked to be “sworn” in and take the oath to support the Constitution and support this USA. The dictates of failing and honor and carry out those sworn to duties are clearly repelled out. Treason is the huge one and it carries a huge penalty. Representing the PEOPLE OF THE USA is not taken lightly. Our Founding Fathers did not take the forming of this Republic, the developing of our Constitution and Bill of Rights were the envy of the entire world. We were the most blessed people in the entire world except for the covenant between our Lord and His people. We formed this “experiment” UNDER GOD. Our Lord made a covenant with us also.
    We have thrown our Lord out of many places in our country and we are seeing the outcome and the stench of behavior that has resulted. There MUST be a return to our Constitution, our pledge to our Lord, our abiding by our laws and where does that start – AT THE TOP. Again there are different tops, if a senator does not honor is oath – 0UT – punished according to crime and laws, We are standing or the tip of the iceberg. There must be indictments, punishments, and some of them are very serious indeed. Destroying our country is not a mild crime. Treason is not a mild crime, ignoring our Constitution and harming this Republic is certainly not a mild crime. Lord, we trust in you, we honor you, and we love you. There are alot of us out here who pray and look to you for salvation as you promised. We need you to cleanse our country of those who are possessed by evil and destroying what you have given us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  34. The Dems, the “media”, the “press” & the Deep State are terrified of Trump because he has the majority of common sense American patriots who support him AND NO AMOUNT of lying, skewed info or attempted BRAINWASHING will alter that FACT!

  35. What a stupid observation (a made-up one at that). Trump wouldn’t spend all his time and money on something he didn’t believe was true. WaPo is treating Trump like he’s a Democrat.
