I agree that he has a flair for the dramatic. It doesn’t make his larger point that political considerations could have played a role in the way the story was originally told.

Also, as he’s pointed out in other articles these types of misstatements can’t be easily reversed. The majority of Americans formed their opinions of what happened at the capital in the days that followed and stories like a Capital police officer being bludgeoned to death with a fire extinguisher by deranged Trump lunatics surely played a role in that opinion.

So now months late the truth is finally out there but while I’m listening and you’re listening, most people don’t care, won’t hear about it and certainly won’t change their opinion based on it. The damage was done much in the same way the damage was done in the fake Russian bounties story.
