When Cosmo reached out to Conway for comment, she told them, "It was a plot to massacre and they were Bowling Green terrorists".

However, Cosmopolitan reports Conway used the phrase "Bowling Green massacre" on the record with the magazine four days prior to her interview with Matthews. Now, The Daily Beast reports that they dug up another instance of Conway using the false talking point.

When Cosmo reached out to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about Conway's account, it said, an Federal Bureau of Investigation spokesman told the magazine "a couple of your facts seem incorrect". "Most people don't know that because it didn't get covered".

It would be a positive development if Ms. Conway embraced the idea that the term "honest mistakes" can apply to reporters, too, as it would be if everybody - including journalists - doubly committed to getting the facts right, without hysteria or misfires.

World's new longest flight takes off from Doha, Qatar
Qatar Airways, which inaugurated its first flight between Doha and Auckland, New Zealand today, has broken a flying time record. The route covers 14,535km and the flight takes as long as 17 hours 45 minutes when flying into prevailing jet streams to Doha.

That's true, but that's not a massacre in Bowling Green. The New York Times later quoted the cable news network's explanation that declining to host Conway was because of "serious questions about her credibility".

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway has said she misspoke when she referenced the "Bowling Green massacre" - an event that never happened - in a February 3 interview defending President Trump's travel ban on MSNBC. He did that for exactly the same reasons. "I clarified immediately", Conway said.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway recently told an interviewer: "People think I only go on TV", she said of her very frequent appearances defending President Trump and his policies. "I should have said terrorists and not massacre". "On @hardball@NBCNews@MSNBC I meant to say "Bowling Green terrorists" as reported here", she wrote.

ABC's reporting also noted the USA overhauled its refugee screening system in 2011 after the duo were found to be mistakenly admitted into the homeland.

As has been thoroughly documented, there has never been a terror attack in Bowling Green-particularly one perpetrated by refugees, immigrants, or Muslims. "I gave new life to that ABC News investigative report and the fact that these two Iraqi nationals came to the U.S. with a plan of death and destruction".
