The U.S. President slammed the Peacock network after it corrected its story, from yesterday, that wrongly stated that federal authorities had wiretapped his lawyer Michael Cohen.
The broadcaster quickly corrected the error, that Cohen’s phones were being monitored as part of a pen register rather than a wiretap. “The monitoring of Cohen’s phones was limited to a log of calls, known as a pen register, not a wiretap where investigators can actually listen to calls,” it added to the story.

“NBC NEWS is wrong again! They cite “sources” which are constantly wrong. Problem is, like so many others, the sources probably don’t exist, they are fabricated, fiction! NBC, my former home with the Apprentice, is now as bad as Fake News CNN. Sad!,” he wrote early on Friday morning.
