    Never forget how powerful the Left is...not because of the rectitude of their ideas (conservatives eat their lunch in debate), but because they control the means of dissemination of information.
    They can report what they wish, and not report that which opposes their narrative.


    Sometimes they get caught.


    1. "Multiple Outlets Retract Stories on Trump-Admin Child Deportations that Relied on Obama-Era Data

    2. Multiple news outlets on Tuesday retracted articles indicating that the Trump administration currently holds over 100,000 illegal immigrant children in detention, after it became clear that the statistic reflected child detentions in 2015 when Barack Obama was president.

    3. The United Nations released a report on Monday claiming that 100,000 children were being held in U.S. immigration detention facilities, but the report’s author, human-rights lawyer Manfred Nowak, then clarified to the Associated Press that 2015 was the latest year for which Nowak’s team could find data.


    4. “Reuters decided to withdraw its story after the United Nations issued a statement on November 19 saying the number of children in detention was not current but was for the year 2015,” a spokesman for Reuters told the Daily Caller. Reuters deleted the story entirely, without putting up a replacement, and NPR promised to update its story in light of the correction.

    5. Reports from the Associated Press, Reuters, NPR, and Al Jazeera all misrepresented Nowak’s data as representative of current detention levels."

    "...Reuters and AFP deleted their stories after the U.N. clarified the numbers were from 2015, when former President Barack Obama was in office. AFP did not immediately respond to a request for comment on why it no longer felt the numbers were newsworthy after being informed they were from 2015.



    NPR retracted its entire story at 6:53 p.m. Eastern time, issuing a notice that it would be posting another story with “more complete information.”

    “We have temporarily withdrawn this story because the study’s author has acknowledged a significant error in the data. We will post a revised article with more complete information as soon as possible,” NPR’s page reads.


    Aljazeera updated its article, which is now headlined “UN expert corrects claims on children in US migration.” The article notes that the data is from the Obama administration, but a large portion of it is still dedicated to scrutinizing illegal immigration under Trump.



    NPR and Aljazeera did not immediately responded to a request for comment from the DCNF."

    Trump sent out this:

    The @DNCWarRoom slammed Joe Biden's "disgusting," "white nationalist"-driven detention of 100,000 migrant children in violation of international law. Sounds pretty bad @JoeBiden!

    Ya know who has NEVER had to retract anything because it was always true? Assange/wikileaks. So he had to go away. And Snowden. And Manning. America can't handle the truth.
