Fox News reporter Alicia Acuna, who initially claimed Montana GOP candidate Greg Gianforte "grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands" before slamming him to the ground has changed her story.

From Lifezette:
Acuna's report quickly went viral online, but she admitted Thursday during an interview on "The Laura Ingraham Show" that she misstated theneck grab.

"One of you guys said last night that he put his hands around his neck," Ingraham said. "Which, as somebody who's done a lot of taekwondo and self-defense, to me that seemed, that might not be exactly right."

"You know, and I'm the one who said that,"Acuna replied, "I saw both his hands go up, not around his neck in a strangling type of way, but more just on each side of his neck, just grabbed him and I guess it could've been on his clothes, I don't know."

Listen to the Laura Ingraham interview.

Ingraham askedAcunaif that meant she was changing her story.

"Again, just to clarify, he didn't grab him by the neck with both hands in the way that was initially described, that's not quite accurate," Ingraham asked at the end of the interview.

"No, so it wasn't like he grabbed him around the neck, he had one hand on each side of his neck," Acunaconfirmed.
Acuna also said Gianforte punched Jacobs, which even Jacobs doesn't appear to have claimed happened.




Her story sounded pretty over the top, nonetheless the damage has already been done.
