TIME Mag Thugs Correct Misleading Cover – Then Stick By Their #FakeNews Cover Anyway
TIME Magazine this week posted the image of President Trump looking down at a crying Honduran child who they suggest was separated from her mother at the border.
The moving photo was used by the liberal media and and far left activists to pummel the Trump administration for its decision to start strictly enforcing immigration laws at the border.
But it was all a lie.
The mother abandoned a husband and three kids at home in Honduras. The mother was previously deported in 2013. The mother and daughter were never separated. She left her husband and paid a coyote $6,000 to sneak back into the United States.
TIME Magazine later corrected their misleading cover.

This was earlier Friday morning.
But about an hour later TIME Magazine decided to stand by their Fake News cover anyway.
TIME: The June 12 photograph of the 2-year-old Honduran girl became the most visible symbol of the ongoing immigration debate in America for a reason. Under the policy enforced by the administration, prior to its reversal this week, those who crossed the border illegally were criminally prosecuted, which in turn resulted in the separation of children and parents. Our cover and our reporting capture the stakes of this moment.
