Litany of Retraction

"There isn't anything I can do to him that he hasn't already done to himself."
--Keith Nelson (Some Kind of Wonderful)

Last weekend Donald Trump called out a Washington Post reporter for photos that falsely reported an underwhelming crowd at a recent Trump rally down south. \The report was later retracted.
Subsequent apology by the reporter adds to the list of nearly daily retractions (another weekend whopper here) by mainstream media outlets for negative press on the president that has been proven wrong. Fake news, quite literally.

This Twitter exchange captures the situation well:

Through a litany of retraction caused by lowering journalistic standards in a quest to destroy someone they don't like, mainstream media outlets are destroying themselves.
