Let me clarify... the meaning of "redact" - from dictionary.com
to put into suitable literary form; revise; edit
to draw up or frame (a statement, proclamation, etc.).
to edit (text) so as to remove or hide confidential or sensitive information

So... to redact a story means you've realized that some part of it was incorrect (or sensitive/confidential) and therefore, the news company redacts it.

For a company NOT to redact any of their stories - especially ones that have been fact checked as being propoganda or outright lies - shows that THEY are the company that has no interest in the truth.

"Everyone makes mistakes, it's how you handle them that defines you."

As for the Wall Street Journal... they are mostly accurate - but they do tend to lean right-center... and are fairly obviously pro-Trump...


Correct^

So why are you here defending News Stations who have redacted & retracted their stories over and over, while trying to assert the wall street journal has integrity issues...

Understand, attacking me, for pointing out facts shows how little you care.

I'm not defending anything... please re-read my comments... I'm replying to your amazingly off-topic comment (which itself was a reply to an even MORE off-topic comment) about how someone who doesn't trust the Wall Street Journal must be an anti-Trumper...

ALL news agencies have some sort of bias - WSJ is right wing, CNN is left wing... etc.... but when a news agency is wrong - and it happens to ALL of them - they redact or flat out retract (yes, there's a difference!) the stories...

That you claim the WSJ hasn't redacted ANY stories leads one to wonder... why? Since there ARE some stories that they've published with inaccurate information, wouldn't it behoove them to "redact" those?

The most glaring, of course, is Trump himself... he has made MANY completely inaccurate statements... but never admits them even after being proven wrong.... his interest in the truth therefore is....?

Again, YOU are the one who stepped in, defending rub900 with your fake news stories, and was unable to accept the truth.

Now you are off on a tangent trying to redeem yourself from your own propaganda. Remember, I have been the one watching and reading American news media for 50+ years... so am speaking with first hand knowledge. I remember when CNN started and I remember how a decade ago (as an American) when CNN starting spewing political agendas, and to now watch CNNs rating drop to less than Internet bloggers... becauze CNN is fake.

CNN is up for sale, you should buy them, you like supporting their lies so much...

I honestly believe you have issues with reading comprehension.... I am NOT defending any news outlets... CNN is not "fake news" nor is the WSJ.... they all have political agendas, they all make mistakes... CNN's website tends to be pretty factual - it's their TV broadcasts that tend to be politically slanted, which is also a byproduct of having to fill 24 hours of live air time... I don't think anyone could be factual 24/7 if they were mandated to do that.

I'm a Canadian and really couldn't care less about how Trump was screwed out of the election (he wasn't) or whether he spouts lies whenever he speaks (he does).

It's pretty easy to fact check anything you want nowadays... maybe pick some examples of something Trump has said and start researching before you rush to defend him?
 
Unlike the Orange Guy, Biden's taxes are public. Just because you don't want to look for them, it doesn't he's hiding them.

Nice tro

Nice trolling.
I' not a troll I was just not aware of that being online. What is ti with people on the left attacking people personally ( usually calling everybody racist ) for having a different opinion. I'm sure that you must have already googled this because that's the way you roll...https://nypost.com/2021/04/06/joe-bidens-unpatriotic-tax-dodge/

You were defending another's post... and tried to attack me for telling you the truth.

It's all right there if you want to read how butt-hurt you are. Plus, I dont think you know the difference between actual News Program vs Show.

And it does not matter how bias Don Lemon is, because He is not "News"... but when an actual CNN News reporters, report a lie... and do not correct themselves "on air".. and hide their 200+ correction on the web page.... and NOT letting the people who watched the exact same news the following day, know that the story the told the day before was false...

Means they are perpetuating the lie... ON PURPOSE!

Everyone knows why CNN and ABC News, and the rest of them do this... while Fox makes ON AIR apologies by the same people who made the error. When you purposely do not correct yourself ON AIR, you know you are spreading fake news...!

It's not an attack.... I was asking you if you knew what the meaning of the word "redact" was... you are always quick to attack others on this site - but with 0 evidence....

You like to use "everyone knows" when everyone DOES NOT know... SOME people THINK they know.... HUGE difference!

Now, do you have anything useful to add to this thread? Or do you just want to blast Biden and defend Trump - even though this is about Amazon paying taxes....

People are quick to point at Biden for his LEGAL evasion of paying taxes... how about Trump's taxes...

See, you still can't accept that the fake news media... is fake. And you will go to any length to defend the left's fake narrative.

You are part of the problem. Because of coarse I know what redacted meant, and so do you. You just didn't want to accept the truth. So now TechSpot is filled with crocodile tears from the left....

You have an agenda, I do not. (Also, nobody is bringing up Trump, except you.... because you have TDS.)

Geez people. there is no such thing as a loophole. there is the law.

as bad as law makers are at making laws (that's being kind I think. maybe they are making exactly what they intend) the language they speak is the bills they pass.

these things I keep seeing called loopholes are the rules. we just don't all qualify for them. and yes many of them suck depending on your perspective but that's besides the point

Wasn't it the former Pres at a rally, who thanked Obama & Joe Biden for the tax cuts (ie: loopholes)... that allowed him to pay less taxes, than his Maid...?

Well, Amazon trucks add to the wear and tear on our highways, already crumbling. Amazon does not pay a sou in taxes. In effect, Amazon is getting a subsidy from all of us to deliver the goods. It is not likely that Amazon or Walmart, our two biggest employers, are going to move their businesses elsewhere if required to pay federal taxes. It is high time to revise the tax code so that corporations pay their fair share. For too long have corporations been getting a free ride on taxes, adding to the serious gap between the haves and the have nots. Let corporations scream and holler! How many are prepared to move their businesses elsewhere, away from the most lucrative US market?

Yeah, well loopholes in the tax code have existed for a very long time. Obama did not invent them. They existed way before Obama, probably back to the time of Reagan, maybe even back to Eisenhower. Year after year of lobbying with huge bribes, er, contributions, to legislators has done the job.

Please feel free to provide EVIDENCE of your nonsense.... Please, provide some links... Once again, "everyone knows" isn't evidence...

I'm part of the problem, am I? What problem? Why is the left so terrible? Is it any worse than the right?

But sure, just go TRUMPeting your former leader's blatant lies... we applaud your brilliance.

If you need evidence of the truth, you obviously are not watching all the news networks. Try starting with FOX News. It is the highest rated and most watched in the USA. Probably, because they don't habitually (as a news team) have to recant, rescind or correct their reporting, nor would they do so on a webpage, 3 days later. Essentially, perpetuating and letting their lie stand throughout the weekend... like Jeff Zucker got caught on tape saying.... then pulling the story back mid next week... because headlines stick with people...! (TLDK? You dump fake news on Friday, before the weekend and let it make headlines, then pull it back on wed, when nobody is noticing... <--- is a Jeff Zucker news tactic.)


Many still believe major headlines from years ago, even though they were false and untrue.

ie: We now know, that both Impeachment's were a hoax. And proven on live TV in front of the American People. Who paid a foreign agent to dig up salacious news on their opposing candidate and THEN start circulating the fictitious stories around political backchannels... as a ruse to stir up more hatred for your opponent... as the "disgusting and sick news" about Him, trickled into further Political channels, secretly condemning Her Opponent... knowing it was all a lie.

Who did this^...?



Again, I am not a Trumpster, So cry more.
But understand, that when you use Trump for every feeble excuse and lie you have... it means you don't have a real point and are just complaining about Politics, not law or Constitution.

Once again... just saying “it’s the truth” doesn’t make it so... I await real proof... perhaps look up that word on dictionary.com as well?

Here’s an example of how reliable Fox News is... notice how I provide evidence to back it up?
