Fake news NBC posts correction after falsely claiming Putin ‘does not deny’ having compromising info on Trump
By Joe Newby - June 5, 2017

On Sunday, NBC News was forced to post a correction after falsely claiming that Russian President Vladimir Putin “does not deny having compromising information” on President Donald Trump.

According to Breitbart:

To promote the debut of Kelly’s “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” program, NBC News tweeted, “EXCLUSIVE: Putin does not deny having compromising information on President Trump in interview with @megynkelly.”
CNBC, NBC’s sister station, did not send out fake news, linking to the same story after tweeting, “Russia’s Putin denies having compromising information on Trump.”
Reuters also reported on the interview and tweeted, “Putin denies having compromising information on Trump.”

CORRECTION: Putin denies having compromising information about President Trump, calls it nonsense http://nbcnews.to/2rzYXdH 
Here’s the relevant part of the NBC article:
Asked whether “you have something damaging on our president?” Putin — who once worked as a KGB recruiter — replied: “Well, this is just another load of nonsense. Where would we get this information from?”
“Why, did we have some special relationship with him?” Putin asked. “We didn’t have any relationship at all. There was a time when he used to come to Moscow. But you know, I never met with him. We have a lot of Americans who visit us.”
The well-known spin master then attempted to turn the tables.
“Right now, I think we have representatives from a hundred American companies that have come to Russia,” Putin said. “Do you think we’re gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something? Have you all lost your senses over there?”

Breitbart added:
On Saturday evening, the network again displayed its blatant anti-Trump bias when NBC Nightly News’ twitter account, for some reason, decided to mock Trump’s suggestion that terrorists were behind the London Bridge attacks by sending out this tweet: “Pres. Trump has used Twitter to share news report on London incident. We aren’t relaying president’s retweet, as the info is unconfirmed.”

Pres. Trump has used Twitter to share news report on London incident.

We aren't relaying president's retweet, as the info is unconfirmed.
