The New York Times Retracts the Sicknick Story
Like so many fake news stories about Donald Trump and his supporters, millions of Americans believe the Sicknick story as truth; even a correction won’t change their minds.
By Julie Kelly
February 14, 2021

In a quiet but stunning correction, the New York Times backed away from its original report that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was killed by a Trump supporter wielding a fire extinguisher during the January 6 melee at the Capitol building. Shortly after American Greatness published my column Friday that showed how the Times gradually was backpedaling on its January 8 bombshell, the paper posted this caveat:

UPDATE: New information has emerged regarding the death of the Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick that questions the initial cause of his death provided by officials close to the Capitol Police.

The paper continued to revise its story within the body of the original January 8 story: “Law enforcement officials initially said Mr. Sicknick was struck with a fire extinguisher, but weeks later, police sources and investigators were at odds over whether he was hit. Medical experts have said he did not die of blunt force trauma, according to one law enforcement official.”

What’s missing, however, is how the Times first described what happened to Sicknick. “Mr. Sicknick, 42, an officer for the Capitol Police, died on Thursday from brain injuries he sustained after Trump loyalists who overtook the complex struck him in the head with a fire extinguisher, according to two law enforcement officials.”

The account of Sicknick’s death was reported as fact, not speculation or rumor. Further, it appears that the anonymous sources were not law enforcement officials but people “close” to the police department—which means they could have been anyone from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to inveterate liar U.S. Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to the Democratic mayor of Washington, D.C., Muriel Bowser.

Not only was the Times’ untrue story about Sicknick’s death accepted as fact by every news media organization from the Wall Street Journal to the Washington Post, political pundits on the NeverTrump Right also regurgitated the narrative that Sicknick was “murdered” as did lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

In an outrageous effort to create more favorable optics before the impeachment trial, House Democrats honored Sicknick in a rare memorial at the Capitol Rotunda on February 3. Joe Biden, in a statement issued after Donald Trump was acquitted Saturday afternoon, repeated the lie about Sicknick. “It was nearly two weeks ago that Jill and I paid our respects to Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who laid in honor in the Rotunda after losing his life protecting the Capitol from a riotous, violent mob on January 6, 2021.”

The Times’ correction might be one reason why Democrats on Saturday reversed their demand to subpoena witnesses. House impeachment managers cited the original January 8 Times’ article as evidence in their impeachment memo: “The insurrectionists killed a Capitol Police officer by striking him in the head with a fire extinguisher.”

Any arrangement to compel testimony would have provided Trump’s legal team with an opportunity to expose yet another myth in the Democrats’ “incitement” case against the former president.

Now that the Times has essentially retracted its explosive article, will other news organizations, pundits, and lawmakers follow suit? Unfortunately, like so many media-manufactured stories about Donald Trump and his supporters, millions of Americans already believe the Sicknick story as truth; even a Times’ correction won’t change their minds.

The truth in all matters related to Donald Trump is only of secondary concern, if at all. And once again, reporters who egregiously exploited a man’s untimely death to score political points against a man they revile won’t be held accountable. Another hoax down the memory hole.

Glad I don't pay attention to any of it anymore outside of talking to the Looney Tunes here. I've never even heard of this story.

Good thing somebody was impeached for this Fake Event. What kind of idiot believed this story at all, anyhow? Other than Libtards in Congress, as evidence for Impeachment.


Did they bother to point out that 3 of the "5 dead" died of natural causes, including heart attack? Oops, I mean the Covid.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.






Sure, why NOT manufacture events and spread your stories about them all over the globe? Isn't that what the 'news' is for?

Did everybody pass over the news that he died of heart attack?

So this brings the total to 5 heart attacks out of 5 who died, right?

And now we have Impeachments for heart attacks. yay.

Yes, apparently they were so serious about launching an insurrection they were going to use - poleaxes and staves.

Your link is from Jan 14 when people ASSUMED the rioters were armed, and that narrative was all over the 'news' AS IF it was true.

By why believe a recent CNN transcript when you can keep harping on your narrative?

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/2103/03/cnr.06.html

JOHNSON: How many firearms were confiscated in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds during that day?

SANBORN: To my knowledge, we have not recovered any on that day from any other arrests at the scene at this point. But I don't want to speak on behalf of Metro and Capitol Police, but, to my knowledge, NONE.

JOHNSON: So, nobody has been charged with an actual firearm weapon in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds?

SANBORN: Correct. The closest we came was the vehicle that had Molotov cocktails in it. And when we did a search to that vehicle later on, there was a weapon. But --

JOHNSON: How many shots were fired of that we know of?

SANBORN: I believe the only shots that were fired were the ones that resulted in the death of one lady. (probably by police since she was shot from inside before the building was breached)




Yep, those 'insurrectionists' WERE NOT ARMED.

FBI Counterterrorism Official: No Firearms Recovered During Jan. 6 Capitol Breach
By Jack Phillips
March 3, 2021 Updated: March 3, 2021

An FBI official on Wednesday testified at a Senate hearing that she has no knowledge of any guns being recovered from suspects who were arrested during the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.

When asked by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) about whether firearms were recovered or if any suspect was charged with firearms offenses, FBI counterterrorism official Jill Sanborn responded: “To my knowledge, none.”

But in the hearing, Sanborn also said that before the Jan. 6 incident, “We knew they would be armed, we had intelligence that they would be coming to DC, but we did not have intelligence that they would be breaching the Capitol.”

“I believe that the only shots that were fired were the ones that resulted in the death of the lady,” Sanborn also testified, referring to the officer-involved shooting of Ashli Babbit.

Johnson previously told news outlets that the term “armed insurrection” used by some Democratic officials, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and mainstream news outlets is incorrect as no guns were recovered.

Videos posted online appeared to show some alleged rioters in melee battles with Capitol Police officers. In one instance, a man was seen hitting an officer with an American flag. A firearm was also recovered from a van containing Molotov cocktails near the Capitol complex, according to reports. Officer Brian Sicknick died either during or after the melee, but officials have not released his cause of death—while his mother told the Daily Mail last week that she believes he died of a stroke and wasn’t beaten to death by a fire extinguisher, as some reports suggested.

All of those Armed Insurrectionists who were not armed nor insurrectionists.

Plus the bombs that Nancy's goons planted the day before.


What more fitting for an Impeachment for nothing more than what Nancy dreamed, scripted, and perpetrated.
