Fox Business issues correction for botched Trump approval poll

Lou Dobbs botched Trump approval number

The Fox Business Network issued an on-air correction Thursday after the network aired a poll graphic — later shared online by President Donald Trump — that incorrectly displayed the president's unfavorable rating as his job approval rating.

“It’s been a quite start to the day for President Trump, though he did send out a tweet this morning from the Lou Dobbs show last night on Fox Business," Washington correspondent Blake Burman said on behalf of Fox Business. "That tweet featured a poll that was not entirely accurate, which Fox Business would like to correct."

TVNL Comment: What does 'not entirely accurate' mean?  Dobbs' poll numbers were totally accurate by a long shot.  They were either accurate or inaccurate.  Period.



Press group asks judge to lift grand jury secrecy in Mueller report

Reports file FOIA document for Mueller probeThe Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request Monday for the release of grand jury materials used in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his investigation into Russia's election interference.

Trump demands NYT and WP have Pulitzers rescindedPresident Trump took to Twitter late Friday to rail against The Washington Post and The New York Times for their coverage of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
