Daily Mail: Retraction on Melania Story

      In a move rare in today's "we stand by our story" media, the Daily Mail issued a retraction and apology on the story suggesting future First Lady Melania Trump was an "escort".   The story was based on something in a Slovenian gossip magazine...Boy, that's sourcing.
     Mrs Trump was outraged.  People hear bits and pieces. Last night a patron looking to needle me said he had heard Mrs. Trump was a hooker.
     Just goes to show how easily such stuff makes it into the body politic.

The damage is done. Only a dannie would suggest there is balance in today's media. It has reached a point of absurdity.

They retracted it because Trump sued.

Gee whiz 8:04, I thought all lawyers were Democrats. How else could a hero sue for a fall off a swing set, as it were? In that case, the school had to settle.

Oh, damn blame the Clintons... nothing better to do.

Dannie, I don't see where the original post nor any of the responses mentioned the Clintons. Are you going to be ok? Stress, as it were. It has got to be tough to defend the Skank at every turn. You must realize how stupid you sound, every day. Semper Fi, to the party that is.
