Yet, he still has a job!

MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell said Wednesday he made an “error in judgment” and should not have reported on air Tuesday information about the president’s finances from a single source and formally retracted the statement on air Wednesday night.

On Tuesday, the host reported that President Donald Trump’s financial records show that some of his loans have Russian co-signers.

“The Last Word” host opened his show Wednesday night by saying he repeated statements from a single source that weren’t ready for reporting and that he did not go through the network’s “rigorous verification and standards process” before repeating it, and that “had it gone through that process, I would not have been permitted to report it.”

“Tonight, we are retracting the story. We don’t know whether the information is inaccurate, but the fact is we do know it wasn’t ready for broadcast, and for that I apologize…….. Last night I made an error in judgment by reporting an item about the president’s finances that didn’t go through our rigorous verification and standards process. I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air”

O’Donnell tweeted earlier Wednesday that his reporting Tuesday night, which cited a single unnamed source close to Deutsche Bank, did not meet “our rigorous verification and standards process.”
