MSNBC Caught in Huge Lie
 
MSNBC was recently caught spreading fake news again. The network was called out for giving a journalist from Media Matters a verified checkmark from Twitter when he actually was not verified.

According to The Daily Caller:

MSNBC featured a tweet Wednesday from Media Matters’ Bobby Lewis — but the displayed graphic included Twitter’s “verified” blue check, which Lewis does not actually have.

The tweet MSNBC shared was a selectively-edited quote from radio host Michael Savage, which was reconstructed to suggest that Savage was simply angry with President Donald Trump for “attacking white supremacy.” 

 

The full quote, which makes it clear that Savage’s concern is that the president made a statement in facilitation of the leftist narrative that conflates everyone who is worried about illegal immigration with white supremacists, is as follows:

I was very disappointed in the president attacking white supremacy. He is now saying everyone who is concerned about the illegal alien invasion is a white supremacist? He suddenly has joined who? He’s like Jake Tapper now, and the rest on CNN. That was a mistake, Mr. President. I am sorry. That is going to cost you thousands, if not tens of thousands of votes.

...

MSNBC was caught trying to give more relevance to a person who spends his mornings live-tweeting "Fox & Friends."
