The mainstream media is fake news after all…

On Thursday, USA Today announced that its site has removed 23 stories after an investigation revealed that a journalist working for them was fabricating their quotes.

USA Today in a public announcement was quoted as saying “after receiving an external correction request, USA Today audited the reporting work of Gabriela Miranda”.

Gabriela Miranda has since resigned and but her alleged fabricated stories are creating a lack of trust amongst readers of USA Today

CNN dropped these details:

USA Today on Thursday said that it had removed 23 stories from its website after an internal investigation found that one of its journalists had apparently “fabricated” quotes in her stories.

“After receiving an external correction request, USA Today audited the reporting work of Gabriela Miranda,” said an editor’s note written by USA Today’s managing editor of standards, Michael McCarter.

“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,” the note added, “USA Today removed 23 articles from its website and other platforms for not meeting our editorial standards.”

McCarter’s note included a list of stories that were removed. Readers who click on those links now see an editor’s note that says the article “has been removed from our platforms because it does not meet our standards.”
Some of the stories by Miranda appeared in the print version of the daily paper. A spokesperson for the newspaper said that, as a result, the editor’s note will appear in print on Friday.

In addition, some stories included quotes that should have been credited to others,” USA Today wrote in a message to readers.
