Did the Washington Post Correct a Report About Trump’s Call With the Georgia Secretary of State?
After the Washington Post issued a correction to its article reporting on a December 23 phone call between former President Donald Trump and Georgia’s top election investigator, Twitter has been abuzz with different accounts of what actually occurred.
A widely shared tweet from freshman GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn falsely claimed that, “The Washington Post just RETRACTED their story on Trump’s phone call with Georgia’s Secretary of State.”
The Washington Post did not “retract” its story about the January 2 phone call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger; the paper issued a correction to an entirely different article about an entirely different phone call. The correction in question is related to a December 23 phone call Trump had with Georgia’s top election investigator, Frances Watson.
