Dishonest journalist abuses the expression “walk the comments back” to describe something that is not a retraction

When you claim X is true, and then you say, “Wait, I was wrong before, X is not true,” that is called a retraction.

Journos sometimes refer to a retraction as “walking a comment back.”

But remarkably dishonest journos can pretend a hated person has issued a retraction when in fact no retraction has been issued. This is because the newspapers try to lie as much as possible when Soros pays them to lie.


On Monday Trump accused the media of deliberately covering up terrorist attacks.
“It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported,” he said. “And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that.”
Spicer later walked Trump’s comments back, suggesting the president meant attacks were underreported, rather than covered up, and said he would release a list of examples.

End quote.

The journos in question cannot do logic. They cannot define coherent statements and prove actual logical contradictions.

However, the journos want their incoherent, subliterate sneering to be revered by the unwashed masses.


After the release of that list a White House spokesperson told the Guardian: “The real point here is that these terrorists attacks are so pervasive at this point that they do not spark the wall-to-wall coverage they once did.
“If you look back just a few years ago, any one of these attacks would have been ubiquitous in every news outlet, and now they’re happening so often – at a rate of more than once every two weeks, according to the list – that networks are not devoting to each of them the same level of coverage they once did. This cannot be allowed to become the ‘new normal’, and the president, for one, is not going to be satisfied until the American people are much safer and more secure.”
The list includes many high profile attacks that received widespread international coverage, including the 178 people killed by gunmen in Paris, the 86 killed in Nice, the 14 killed in San Bernardino in the US, and the massacre of 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub.
It also includes five Australian incidents that received extensive coverage.

Note the meaning of “subliterate” – Of, relating to, or being language that is dialectal, slangy, or full of jargon.
If you intend to write the truth, write in such a way that your words are difficult to misunderstand. Or just look at what mainstream journalists do, and then do the opposite.
