WaPo Forced to Correct "RussiaGate" Articles with Information from New Durham Indictment
There are several news outlets that that will never admit they were wrong. And for those who do admit to it, they won't do much of anything to rectify such mistakes. Case and point: The Washington Post.
In a move characterized by The Washington Post itself as "unusual," the publication has recently gone back to revise old articles to reflect new, correct information provided in the course of the recent indictment of Igor Danchenko as a result of John Durham's investigation.
Another major editor's note attached to a Washington Post Russiagate story (see others: https://t.co/56HwMKrW7k & https://t.co/7wuV1rw13x).
This one is essentially a retraction. There's no way for major media outlets can keep evading this accountability. It's crashing down. https://t.co/lPmqVqFISl

Originally, the paper made references to Sergei Millian as the primary source of the infamous Steele Dossier. They've revised these pieces to remove Millian, as documents contained released by Durham make it clear Millian was not involved.
Clarification of new details is a common practice in journalism, but this usually comes in the form of updates or editor's notes to correct misleading or incorrect information. Articles usually are not revised and republished. And though the articles supposedly include an editor's note explaining revisions have been made, the pieces are behind the paywall, so there's no telling what they actually say.
But if The Washington Post is going to go back and perform revisions, why haven't they announced making revisions based on the rest of the information available in Durham's documents? It would seem perfectly clear that the entire Steele Dossier was a sham, a willful attempt to discredit a presidential candidate, one perpetrated by a Russian operative in collusion with the Clinton campaign.
But it would seem no such revisions are being made. Those claims will remain up, while The Washington Post does its best to clean up the edges of their reporting, just so they don't look like idiots. Though, they still look like idiots.
The mainstream press/media has lost all credibility, at this point. And the selective revising of a few details without admitting to reporting on entirely false information seems to only provide more evidence of as much.
