As Twitchy told you earlier, NBC News and MSNBC reported that the feds had wiretapped Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and even intercepted one of his calls. Yeah, well, about that:
MSNBC Chyron: “Correction: Feds are monitoring, not listening to Cohen’s calls”

*HUGE* correction from NBC – says feds are “monitoring” michael cohen’s calls, not listening to or recording them.

whoa: NBC is correcting its wiretap story on MSNBC right now, saying it was not a wiretap on Cohen phone. Says it was instead a log of phone calls known as a “pen register,” so couldn’t listen in

MSNBC just corrected on-air their wiretapping story, now say the government was “monitoring” Cohen’s calls.
That is… a gigantic difference.

Pretty darn gigantic, yeah.
The media just can’t stop covering themselves in glory, can they?
This is an immense screw-up. A pen register is comparatively a nothingburger. https://t.co/c8mMntW2HP

The media have to stop blowing stories like this. Get it together, guys. https://t.co/deqDq935R6

There’s only one question left to ask now:
Did they get confirmation from Stormy Daniels lawyer? https://t.co/ffxsCpdmKF
