Fake News Alert: USA Today Deletes 23 Articles After Audit Reveals Reporter Fabricated Sources


Remember when those who delivered the news did their due diligence to ensure the most accurate information was always presented?

Yeah, me neither..

USA Today just deleted 23 articles after discovering that a reporter fabricated her sources.

Gabriela Miranda had her reporting work audited after USA Today received an external correction request.

The internal audit lasted for several weeks, and lead to Miranda resigning.

She allegedly fabricated several of her sources, with some of the people she quoted having not been affiliated with the organizations they claimed.

The New York Post has more on this story:

USA Today said it has deleted 23 articles from its website after an investigation found that the reporter who wrote them used fabricated sources.

The journalist who is said to have used the fabricated sources was identified as Gabriela Miranda, a breaking news reporter who resigned from the Virginia-based newspaper weeks ago, the paper confirmed Thursday.

Miranda’s most recent news story for USA Today is dated April 17.

According to the bio on her website, Miranda was assigned to cover “trending news nationwide” while at USA Today.

“After receiving an external correction request, USA TODAY audited the reporting work of Gabriela Miranda,” the paper wrote Thursday. “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.

“As a result, USA Today removed 23 articles from its website and other platforms for not meeting our editorial standards.”

Here is a reminder that USA Today is a known “fact checker.”
