[Ed. – What’s important here is the length of time the chyron was up and how many viewers saw it and are now claiming the former Trump campaign chairman is a killer.]
If you were watching ABC News during President Trump‘s remarks to pool reporters earlier, you may have seen, um, this:
As you probably deduced right away, no, Paul Manafort did not plead guilty to manslaughter.
It’s weird why the chyron error was so specific, but it was up for approximately 7 seconds and ABC News has now apologized:
Statement from @ABC News: We regret and apologize for the false lower third graphic that aired during our special report. We are investigating how incorrect information was in our system and how and why it was allowed to air. (1/2)
