Washington Post “Made Up Quotes” in January, Corrects the Story Two Months Later

The Washington Post attempted to quietly issue a massive correction on a January story in which they mischaracterized the contents of a conversation between Trump and Georgia election officials. Now the left is accusing the right of doing what they were literally just caught doing.
