CORRECTION & BACKFILL: THE “OOPS ! THERE IT IS “ EDITION
POLITICO REPORTS THAT NANCY REAGAN NEVER ENDORSED HILLARY CLINTON
NEWS REPORT OF THAT AS A “FACT” WAS A COMPLETE HOAX — DRUDGE REPORT NEVER CARRIED SUCH A STORY — BLOOMBERG NEWS ADMITS ERROR IN REPEATING STORY AND APOLOGIZES
THERE WAS NO INTERVIEW OF NANCY REAGAN BY RON REAGAN, Jr., ON ANY HISTORY CHANNEL SERIES “FIRST LADIES IN THEIR OWN WORDS”
According to a report in Politico, the source of the false report/hoax was “... NationalReport.net, a spoof news site that has tricked many a politician and news organization in the past. The piece was then posted to a website called DrudgeReport.com.co, which doesn't seem to be connected to the actual Drudge Report. *** The piece, which was published just before 5 p.m. on Friday, was deleted within minutes (See “Bloomberg falls for fake Nancy Reagan report” by Hadas Gold, 4/10/15, Politico/ Dylan Byers on Media [http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2015/04/bloomberg-falls-for-fake-nancy-reagan-report-205356.html]).
