Washington Post Acknowledges They Misquoted Me, Buries Correction

Total634 On Thursday the Washington Post published a 2300 word article about me on the front page of their sports section. The article, which was titled, “Clay Travis is Trump’s Secret Weapon in the Fight Over College Football,” featured just 94 words in quotes from me. All of those quotes were taken out of context More

  1. Can’t believe that the Washington Post, New York Times and the like can remain in business. It’s one thing to have different opinions but to outright lie is totally ridiculous. It’s amazing that I’m this day and age of cameras/recording devices everywhere that they think they can get away with this crap. Glad that Clay published the truth – need much more of that.

  2. Was the media always this dishonest? It sure didn’t seem like it when I was a kid, but I suppose I wasn’t paying much attention to it back then…

    Now more than ever, it bothers me that media can publish just about anything they want that supports their point of view. Their atonement/retraction is never as loud or as broad, and quite frankly, is almost never found by the readers/viewers of the original piece. At least you knew it was coming, and could arm yourself.

    What a farce.

  3. You know how deflating this is? 1/2 the country buys into every day what the W Post, NY Times, the TV media put out for consumption. Fake news – ever hear that uttered. Media – enemy of the people – that would be something to say. Why can’t these companies be sued out of existence. It’s criminal what they do. You can literally change the direction of this country with outright lies. I’ll be spending Labor Day with my in-laws and will hear what a reprobate Trump is. HE IS ALL WE HAVE TO COMBAT THIS! And he doesn’t even need to do it. Please with the egomaniac needs the gig. Like F he’s does.

    • I hear ya, PenGlenn…I have an in-law like that…outside of the family stuff, though, the bright side is the Left is running out of ammo. They tried Russia 2.0, and the lockdown, and “the rioters are white supremacists,” lately it’s that The Prez called our vets and fallen soldiers things I won’t repeat.
      Brazenly (even for Dims) they actually contacted the Joint Chiefs and said they needed the military to remove The Prez when he loses…to which Gen. Milley said fukk off – in an open letter that was sent to the press (which is a very big deal b/c the military always talks behind the scenes only). They would have RUN with that story every day til Nov. 3rd if the military had waffled.

  4. I listened to the Interview. The guy sounded like he was working for his high-school newspaper and needs some serious practice at interviewing people. Clay probably wanted to choke him as he asked his aimless, meandering questions. The article he wrote is nothing like the tone of the interview. He was very meek in the interview and then comes guns blazing in the article. So sad.

  5. I just became a VIP member b/c of this article. I’d never been to your site before…desperately seeking a non-ESPN place to read a little sports coverage w/ some non woke takes on the world. It’s yet another sad day indeed when the MSM passes drivel like the WaPo article as journalism. Keep up the good fight…They’ve only just begun to try to tar and silience you and your team.
    Live your best life!

  6. call me a ‘voiceist’ the child interviewing you sounded like a 26 year old who couldn’t stop saying ‘like’ and seemed to be confused often by what was happening…its seemed like the answers given also were confusing to him at times…he seemed clearly partisan, and not an especially prepared one…again this points to the fact that they still published the garbage they did and begs the question of who has fallen for this and not covered their asses the same way

  7. When I was twelve years old and in a small Catholic School in Oklahoma City, I remember the Dominican Nuns telling me you cannot believe everything you read in the papers. Well here you are. Newspapers are no longer the first source of information for the masses as they were in 1966. This is going on all over the internet and there is no one pointing it out to our young people. Wake up!
