CNN chief reporter caught making up quote from US general regarding russia
What the CNN chief reporter claims the general said:

quote:


Jim Sciutto
?Verified account @jimsciutto

Breaking: Top US general in Europe: "I don't believe there is an effective" US response to confront #Russian cyber threats - NATO Supreme Allied CMDR-Europe Scaparrotti



Reuters reporter calls out CNN reporter:


quote:

Idrees Ali
?Verified account @idreesali114

Idrees Ali Retweeted Jim Sciutto

Full quote actually makes it far less dramatic: " I don’t believe there’s an effective unification across the interagency, with the energy and the focus that we could attain."


Jim Scuttio has not taken down the fake quote yet. It will get thousands of retweets.

Well, best thing you can do is respond with the correction to those who do retweet. Can you put up the link to the second one?

He didn’t make anything up. Out of context perhaps

Then don't quote him. That is disingenuous.

Perhaps.

But it is highly unethical to place quotation marks around shite that's paraphrased.

ETA. Ahh.........I see he didn't place the marks in.

See, even the CNN dude knew he was full of shite.

It definitely changes the meaning of the quote. One means it is not as good as it could be, the other something different.

I had some dealings with Scaparrotti in a previous life.

He is an intimidating dude.

All I get is that ole CNN Jim isn't intelligent enough to parse the quote, so instead he dumbed it down
