NBC News Wrongly Claims Sen. Menendez (on trial for corruption,) Is A Republican.

The senator’s trial for multiple fraud and bribery charges began on Wednesday.


NBC News has published an article incorrectly claiming that New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez — who is on trial for corruption — is a Republican.
Menendez is actually a Democrat, yet in the lead of an article from Wednesday, NBC falsely identified him as a Republican. Confusingly, they later called him a Democrat in the same sentence.
The article appears to be a wire from the Associated Press, but the original piece on AP’s website does not feature the mistake, suggesting it was added in by NBC.
