ABC lies again, runs graphic saying "Manafort pleads guilty to 5 charges of..."

ABC, like all the nets, hates Trump and is doing its worst to sabotage him.  One of the ways to do that is to convince Americans that people who worked on his campaign are bad.

And if you click this link you'll see one of the infinite number of ways they do that.  While broadcasting a clip of president Trump talking about "this immigration problem," ABC put a large graphic at the bottom of the screen saying "Special report:  Manafort pleads guilty to 5 charges of manslaughter."

"Gosh," says the low-info voter, "Five counts of manslaughter!  Wow, I'm glad the investigators kept after the guy and finally got him to plead guilty!"

Of course Low-Info Voter doesn't ever see or hear ABC's apology.  And two days later he's forgotten about seeing the graphic.  All he remembers is that Trump hired a guy who killed five people.  He can't recall who it was, but he's absolutely sure he saw that somewhere.

Now it's not a shock to learn that people make mistakes.  But consider two things:  First, it's quite a coincidence that ABC aired this particular graphic as the president was speaking.

Second:  That graphic obviously didn't just write itself.  Some shit-head at ABC took the time to type it in, knowing it was total horse-shit.  And then hit the button to display it.

This was not innocent.  They hate Trump and will stop at nothing to get rid of him.  The apology is worthless.
