NBC Runs Cover for Biden Releasing Merchant of Death

‘Griner or no one...’

(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Regime collaborator media organ NBC News edited its Thursday article about WNBA black, lesbian, anti-American player Brittney Griner’s release from Russia to support President Joe Biden’s version of the story.

Griner was recently traded for the notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, who is also known as the “Merchant of Death.” Left out of the roundly criticized prisoner swap was U.S. Marine Paul Whelan, who the Biden administration left dangling in Russia.

Initially, NBC said that the Kremlin gave the White House an option to choose between freeing Griner or Whelan in exchange for Bout, according to the Daily Caller.

“A senior U.S. official told NBC News that the U.S. government had sought to have both Griner and Whelan released as part of a swap with the Kremlin, which wanted the return of Viktor Bout, a Russian arms dealer who has served 11 years of a 25-year sentence in the U.S.,” NBC said.

“But the official said Russia has treated Whelan differently because he is an accused spy, and that the Kremlin gave the White House the choice of either Griner or Whelan — or none.”

However, NBC’s alleged news editors changed the paragraph so people would think that the Biden administration had Griner as the only option.

“[The] Kremlin ultimately gave the White House the choice of Griner or no one after different options were proposed.”

At the bottom of the article, a correction said that the article initially “misstated” the administration’s choice between Griner and Whelan, but that the administration had to negotiate between “Griner or no one.”

The article also reported that the sister of Whelan, who’s been imprisoned by the Russians since 2018, had been informed of the deal Wednesday.

Vladimir Zherebenkov, Whelan’s Russian lawyer, reportedly said that releasing Griner is “more humane” because she is a woman and an Olympic champion. Zherebenkov also argued that his client is a former Marine, which makes it easier for him to be in custody.
