Bret Baier Apologizes For But Does Not Fully Retract His Disgraceful Reporting On FBI's Clinton Investigations Fox News host Bret Baier has been forced to apologize for a series of anonymously sourced, Trump friendly reports that Hillary Clinton was about to be indicted and that her email server had been hacked by at least five different foreign intelligence serviecs.
Unfortunately, his apology comes after Fox spent more than two hours of airtime promoting what has been debunked by other outlets. Media Matters explains: During the opening segment of the November 2 edition of Special Report with Bret Baier, Baier cited unconfirmed allegations from "two separate sources with intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations into the Clinton emails and the Clinton Foundation" to claim that "agents are actively and aggressively pursuing" the bureau's investigation into whether Clinton, in her position as secretary of state, engaged in "possible pay for play" behavior b?berry sale in burberry sale store accepting donations for the Clinton Foundation. Baier claimed his sources said the FBI "had collected a great deal of evidence" that suggested Clinton acted criminally, but Baier did not cite any information that would verify such claims. Baier later claimed that the same anonymous sources told him FBI officials are claiming with "99 percent accuracy" that Clinton's private email server was breached "by at least five foreign intelligence agencies" and that the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server "will continue to likely an indictment." Overnight, Baier's anonymously sourced and unconfirmed information was parroted by other Fox hosts, prominent right wing blogs, and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The next day, on America's Newsroom, Baier was forced to walk back his explosive claim of a "likely" Clinton indictment, acknowledging that he "inartfully answered" Fox host Brit Hume's question on that topic and because of that, his reporting "got picked up everywhere." Now, Baier has gone beyond walking back to outright apology. But he has not completely retracted his reporting. From today's Happening Now show (transcript via Media Matters): BAIER: I was quoting from one sourceabout his certainty that theserver had been hacked by fiveforeign intelligence agencies. It's not as though the correct information burberry au sale wasn't out there. As Media Matters noted, several other networks debunked Baier's reporting before he apologized.
On Happening Now, host Jon Scott nevertheless helped suggest that Baier's retraction was only the result of cautious journalism: Meanwhile, the damage has been done. Media Matters points out: But according to Trump burberry official outlet campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, even if Fox's reporting is wrong, "the damage is done to Hillary Clinton" and the facts don't "change what's in voters' minds right no.
