23 Articles Deleted After Reporter Fabricated Sources

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1895: 1st female Ph.D. from an American university, earned by Caroline Willard Baldwin (in Science) at Cornell University.

USA Today had to delete 23 articles after an internal investigation found that a reporter had fabricated sources and gave investigators false evidence in an attempt to cover her tracks.

“After receiving an external correction request, USA Today audited the reporting work of Gabriela Miranda,” the outlet said in a statement.

“The audit revealed that some individuals quoted were not affiliated with the organizations claimed and appeared to be fabricated. The existence of other individuals quoted could not be independently verified. In addition, some stories included quotes that should have been credited to others.”

Miranda had recently resigned from the paper during the investigation, according to the New York Times.

USA Today concluded that Miranda “took steps to deceive investigators by producing false evidence of her news gathering, including recordings of interviews,” the Times reported. “USA Today had a separate story-fabrication scandal in 2004, when the newspaper accused a Pulitzer Prize finalist and correspondent, Jack Kelley, of making up stories and plagiarizing work from other outlets.”

The content of Miranda’s 23 articles was deleted and replaced with an editor’s note that reads, “Editor’s note: This story has been removed from our platforms because it does not meet our standards.

    All MSM needs to investigate their reporters foul spoutings. Their lies are astronomical.

      She performed her task as instructed, don’t believe an editor would let this slip. NYT is about as trustworthy as some chicken tracks made by a bull rooster. They print the lie when the truth is a better story, just like being hell bent on lies i guess, I don’t think anyone is reading them, not out here anyway…

      That’s just not true. A LOT of people read USA Today and believe the lies it contains, just like all of the other leftist publications. That’s why it’s important for these kinds of things to be exposed – perhaps a handful of leftists will come to their senses (doubtful, but it could happen). More importantly, this might keep those who are a bit more neutral from falling to the left. If, as you say, “no one believes” this leftist garbage, then America wouldn’t be in the shape it’s in today, would it?

    I quit reading USA Today over 30 years ago. I was in the Army and noted numerous deceptive articles about the military. During Desert Shield -Storm, USA today printed some articles with headlines about “misconduct and crimes” committed by soldiers. Headlines and lead paragraphs would lead the reader to believe the soldiers were Americans, until a sentence in the last paragraph revealed they were not.
    Around the same time, CNN showed (again) they were political hacks for Democrats.
    When our units returned to Germany after the Desert Storm, a CNN news crew followed Congresswoman Pat Schroeder (D, CO), around Europe. She spent two weeks bashing everything abut the US Military. She said military hospitals, housing, commissaries, and post exchanges were “superfluous gratuities” and a waste of tax dollars.
    There was a German owned and operated Olympic size indoor, heated, swimming pool a couple miles from my unit in Mannheim. Pat had her staff and the CNN crew block the German sign, while she ranted the pool was owned and operated by the Army, supposedly costing taxpayers a million dollars a year.
