The usual mainstream media suspects are at it again with their fake news reports. Shameless lefty news outlets made up a false story claiming the Texas SOS Rolando Pablos refused aid for Houston Hurricane Harvey victims and instead asked for prayers.
The story spread from one sentence in an article from Canada’s CBC News:
“Pablos declined the aid for now, instead asking for ‘prayers from the people of Quebec,'” the article quotes Quebec’s International Relations Minister Christine St-Pierre to have said. “He was very touched by the fact we called him.”
The CBC has not corrected the lie! Please send feedback (it took me a minute to do so) to them. Tell them to correct the lie they told.
The report by the CBC didn’t tell the whole story. The Texas SOS released a statement with a rebuke to the media reports. CBC confirmed that they had misreported the interview.
“Contrary to what has been reported in the media, Secretary Pablos did not decline the minister’s offer, but instead made sure Quebec made contact with the proper Texas state agency,” a spokeswoman said. “The Quebec Government’s office in Houston is in constant contact with local authorities and is arranging for emergency supplies to be shipped shortly.”
Washington Free Beacon reported:
Left-wing outlets that reported on the aid denial included The New York Daily News, Raw Story, Salon, and The Root. Journalists on Twitter spread the story as well, including Texas-based Vanity Fair reporter and MSNBC contributor Kurt Eichenwald.
Yes, THAT Kurt Eichenwald! Remember that he was called out by Tucker Carlson? Why is he still around? He gives media a bad name with his yellow journalism!
Tucker vs Eichenwald:
Why is this guy still working for ANY media outlet?
