CNN its been 0 days since we lied

This isn’t just CNN “fake news,” it’s outright CNN Fake News Fraud.

CNN political analyst and former Clinton White House press secretary Joe Lockhart confirmed the worst suspicions of conservatives about the honesty of mainstream media figures on Wednesday by using his Twitter account to post a completely fabricated conversation he originally claimed to have overheard between Republican senators about the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

And had the gall to take a jab at Fox News while he was doing it.

Lockhart originally published the post about an hour after the opening of Wednesday’s proceedings, claiming the senators were reacting to information from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (who is himself known to be willing to lie to make a political point).

That would be quite a scoop if it were true.

As it turns out, it wasn’t. About 10 minutes later, Lockhart posted a follow-up, admitting he had made up the quotes, but claiming it represented actual Republican thoughts.

“Ok maybe I made up the convo, but you know that’s exactly what they’re thinking,” he wrote.

After getting a taste of the public reaction, Lockhart stooped even further to advise critics to “relax” — and took another idiot swipe at Fox News.
