In an embarrassing display of flip-flopping, ABC’s World News Tonight anchor David Muir seemingly backtracked Thursday night on a claim from two days earlier that Hillary Clinton was “still so unknown to many in this country” to more appropriately ruling that “but she knows, this is a country divided” that has “very strong opinion[s] about her already.”

On Tuesday’s newscast, Muir had this to say in previewing former President Bill Clinton’s speech in primetime at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) about his wife: “Bill Clinton will give what could be his most personal speech ever as he talks about his wife, later tonight. A woman still so unknown to many in this country, will he say anything that changes their minds?”
