Media false reporting on Ukraine is right up there with theri false reporting on the Russian collusion hoax

Becket Adams:
If you are leery already of the press’ coverage of allegations that President Trump pressured the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden, botched reports this week from ABC News and Axios will make you only more suspicious.

Axios breathlessly tweeted Wednesday evening: “JUST IN: An adviser to Ukraine’s president tells ABC News that Trump’s insistence for the two leaders to discuss a possible investigation into Joe Biden was a precondition for their now-infamous July 25 phone call.”

As of this writing, that tweet, which is still live, has been shared more than 8,000 times.
The only problem with this story: The supposed adviser to the Ukrainian president is no longer an adviser. In fact, Leshchenko has been on the outside since even before the July 25 phone call, meaning he is (at best) just another guy who heard a thing from another guy.

But it is actually even worse than that, according to Radio Free Europe's Christopher Miller, whose beat includes covering Ukrainian politics. Leshchenko "said he DID NOT tell ABC insistence for leaders to discuss Biden probe was precondition for call," the Radio Free Europe reporter tweeted.

Well, this is awkward.
They later filed corrections to their report which should have rendered the entire story as another meaningless attempt to smear the President with false information.

Someone could probably write a book about all the false allegations against this President.
