Awful but it really proves Trump’s strategy: Lie, Deny, Never Apologise — — it works!
CNN should have left the story up. They should never have retracted. They could add later stories which clarify. The story isn’t even shown to be wrong… it just wasn’t strong enough to stand up to being sued by Scarramucci.
FOX has no repercussions. Trump has no repercussions. As Seth Meyers recently quipped: Trump NOT lying would be news. Another Trump lie is just ho-hum.
