For my friends who keep defending the media, and trying to demonize the President using the same language, and words they hear, and the lies they hear in the media. Here is a video of a supposedly respected media journalist. Not just lying! But retracting his lie with a soft retract AFTER the damage has been done live on the Rachael Uglycows show, and now Eric Trump Plans to Sue Lawrence O’Donnell, MSNBC for Defamation, and rightfully so. The false, defamatory report are about the Trump Foundation and its finances.
This was a reckless attempt to slander our family and smear a great company. Apologies are not enough when the true intent was solely to damage and cause harm. As a company, we will be taking legal action. This unethical behavior has to stop. @Lawrence @MSNBC https://t.co/i4X6CcdkCm

O’Donnell then admitted he didn’t “adhere to journalistic ethics,” “rigorous verification,” or MSNBC’s “standards” before he wrote a report claiming President Trump received business funding from Russian oligarchs. The report was based off of one anonymous source’s “evidence.” Which means folks he pulled it out of his ass, and ran with it without fact checking, and now like happend to Rachael on her show with Trumps 2005 Tax returns that showed that Trump had paid more in taxes than CNBC, and CNN that year, and he over paid in some cases blowing up in her face off again not pre reading the report while going on air to gloat on having something they didn’t have. So she should be used to these mistakes as she makes them all the time on top of being a goddamn leftist socialist liar she’s a moron also who allows ANYONE on her show as long as they got something bad to say about Trump regardless of truth or falsehood.
“This single source close to Deutsche Bank has told me that Donald Trump’s loan documents there show that he has co-signers. That’s how he was able to obtain those loans and that the co-signers are Russian oligarchs,” O’Donnell told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. “If true, that would explain every kind word Donald Trump has ever said about Russia and Vladimir Putin.”
Immediately President Trump’s team condemned the report as baseless and demanded an apology from O’Donnell, who later admitted he had never seen the documents his source claimed to have. Shocking! Not that he lied, and that he’s based info on un checked material by a source which doesn’t exist but that he reported this on a show which has had this happen before. Perhaps I shouldn’t be shocked again Rachael is this sort of moron she would let this happen over, and over.
“This is one of the reasons that a majority of Americans have lost trust in the media,” Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.
Trump’s attorney, Charles Harder, said in a letter to NBC executives that Trump’s loans are “recorded, publicly available, and searchable online.”
“Thus, actual malice can easily be proven based on your reckless disregard of the truth and unreasonable reliance on an alleged ‘source’ who you will not even identify in your story and likely is seeking to mislead you and the public for political reasons or other ulterior motives,” he wrote, let’s see how this plays out but I do hope Eric, and company sue the living crap out both Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow.
Lawrence O’Donnell retracts a report on President Trump’s loans. “We don’t know whether the information is inaccurate, but the fact is we do know it wasn’t ready for broadcast, and for that I apologize,” – O’Donnell
