How three major news organizations all got a story about Rudy Giuliani wrong

The Wash­ing­ton Post, the New York Times and NBC News all report­ed Thurs­day that the FBI had briefed the lawyer to Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump that he was a tar­get of a Russ­ian dis­in­for­ma­tion cam­paign dur­ing his efforts to dig up unflat­ter­ing infor­ma­tion about then-can­di­date Joe Biden in 2019.

In fact, the news orga­ni­za­tions lat­er said in cor­rec­tions append­ed to their sto­ries Sat­ur­day that Giu­liani had not been briefed by the FBI.

The orig­i­nal sto­ries were pub­lished after Wednesday’s FBI raid of Giuliani’s office and home, part of a crim­i­nal inves­ti­ga­tion of his activ­i­ties in Ukraine. In the cor­rect­ed ver­sions of their sto­ries, both The Post and NBC report­ed that the FBI was aware that Giu­liani was a tar­get of a Russ­ian oper­a­tion — and that it planned to warn him about this but ulti­mate­ly did not.
