NY Post reporter says ’was forced to write fake story’ on Harris, quits

Laura Italiano, a reporter with New York Post, resigned from her media company after she alleged that she was ’ordered’ to write a fake news story on Vice President Kamala Harris. The now-retracted story was about migrant children getting a copy of Harris’s book as part of their ’welcome kits.’ Italiano tweeted she resigned because it was the ’breaking point’ for her.

The fall person always the lowest end of the food chain… what about the editor in chief who made the final say in what was published and what wasn’t…?

This is the kind of employee that keeps media outlets in check. Good on her, and shame on the NY Post. I hope we see the same courage from others in her field.

Is anyone supposed to be surprising? This is many magnitudes less spectacular than the revelations from CNN. Independent journalists are the only ones getting the job done and reporting the facts as best they can. The rest is propaganda organizations not news organizations. Do your own research and go directly to the source. This story changes nothing.

On the whole, this is a good thing. I do have to wonder, however, if this isn't just red meat for people like me to ignore worse lies. I cite the narrative on lockdown versus MIT research on Covid transmission indoors. Research that already existed in fragments of science like Aerodynamics, which is why I had a great convo on twitter with a jet pilot who was 13 on a 1 to 10 scale of not surprised to hear of the MIT research. They literally tried to kill more people by locking us down, though hanlon's razor suggests ignorance because they were listening to Fauci who should know better since he's the "expert", can't apply the razor to him.

So says CNN and The Guardian. I hope the irony isn't lost on them but it probably is. Although I agree it is nice when a journalist outside of the independent media takes a stand for their own integrity.

I am gladdened by reports that we have journalists in this nation that refuse to manufacture and distribute fake news to us. Now if only we had more.

Wow, it’s EXTREMELY SURPRISING to see NOT A SINGLE COMMENT about how many repub pols parroted the (laughably outlandish) story. Liberals are annoying, but holy wow, I grew up in the rural south, so I’ve long known repubs are uneducated swine, but they’ll now literally believe anything you tell em. Which makes sense, if u believe in christianity I dunno what more we’re to expect

I’d say this is news, but every left leaning outlet did this sort of thing during the Trump era. So it’s not surprising that the right is using the lefts tactics.

Forced to write it? Kind of funny, usually when you refuse something, it's not weeks after you've already done the thing. This was bad reporting and the reporter responsible had to bite the bullet. This reads like a release from her PR team trying to save her career by throwing them under the bus. Equally lazy reporting. This app is desperate to die

No all you have to do is check her Twitter timeline she "quit" after the story she wrote was corrected. She "quit" because she embarrassed the publication by writing a false story and they likely were allowing her to save face by "quitting" and being given a positive reference instead of being fired. She's not standing up for any principals or she wouldn't have written the story, or at minimum she would have quit immediately. She did neither of those things because she had no intention of quitting until it was exposed she lied.

Interesting, though I am curious to what manner she was 'forced' to write the story.
