You would think after changing the Zimmerman 911 tapes and getting the Boston reports wrong to start, that they just might do some actual report fact checking. I guess expecting this from a radical media that has lied so often for this radical administration is too much.
CBS News and NBC News retracted reports about the identification of the Washington Navy Yard shooter on Monday, just minutes after each network reported that the suspect in question was a Navy chief petty officer named Rollie Chance.
CBS’s John Miller reported that Chance was a suspect before 1 p.m. on Monday. NBC News later reported the same information and continued to do so past 1 p.m., even after Miller reported that the initial reports about Chance were wrong.
Finally, at 1:05 p.m., NBC political director Chuck Todd tweeted: “NBC News: we are now NOT reporting name of shooter; retracting that report. deleting those tweets.”
BREAKING. @johnmillercbs advises the initial reports identifying the suspected shooter as Rollie Chance are wrong.
