It's hard to keep track of all the fake news these days. It seems coverage for the democrats who lie It is no longer good enough for CNN; Now, your analysts arehelping the political judgment of the democrats effort making stories themselves. Case in point? On Wednesday, CNN analyst Joe Lockhart tweeted an atrocious conversation he heard between two Republican senators during the political trial that day, only to admit later that he had invented everything.
On Wednesday morning, Lockhart, who was also press secretary of the White House of former President Bill Clinton and should know better, tweeted this contemptuous conversation he allegedly heard between two Republican senators:
A convo was heard between two Republican senators who only watch Fox News. "This is real? I haven't heard any of this before. I thought it was a server. If half of what Schiff says is true, we are in the crappy creek. I hope the White House has exculpatory evidence
That tweet accumulated more than 8,000 retweets and 34,000 likes, until Thursday morning. Journalists like Jennifer Rubin de la Washington Post He retweeted it as if it were real. Of course, it was fake news. Lockhart waited about 10 minutes before admitting that he had invented it. Can you guess how much attention the "correction" tweet received? Only a fraction of the same commitment.
Keep in mind that Lockhart is a CNN contributor. Clearly, CNN has not yet hit bottom.
