ABC NEWS FORCED TO APOLOGIZE AFTER FALSELY CLAIMING PAUL MANAFORT PLEADS GUILTY TO MANSLAUGHTER

ABC News issued an apology Wednesday after a graphic falsely claimed that former Donald Trump aide Paul Manafort pleaded guilty to manslaughter charges.

The network was covering the president’s remarks on immigration during a meeting with members of Congress at the White House when a lower third graphic blared: “Manafort pleads guilty to 5 charges of manslaughter.”

Mr. Manafort, the president’s former campaign chairman, is not charged with manslaughter, but is facing a slew of other charges, including money laundering, witness tampering, tax fraud and obstruction of justice.

ABC News apologized for the error on Twitter.

“We regret and apologize for the false lower third graphic that aired during our special report,” the network said. “We are investigating how incorrect information was in our system and how and why it was allowed to air.

“We apologize to our viewers and to Mr. Manafort. There simply is no excuse for this sort of mistake.”
