In the correction, CNN admitted that a “previous version of this story misstated” that the Democratic congressman had “grabbed a crowbar before leaving his office.”
It then clarified, “He grabbed a ProBar energy bar,”
But one has to wonder why, fearing for his life, Ted Lieu’s first thought was ‘Where’s My Energy Bar?’.
Of course, no matter how moronic it may sound to rational people.
Starting a sentence off with ‘Ted Lieu‘ pretty much explains any and all idiocy that follows.
both equally important in a siege, imho.

CNN Correction Proves Why They’re The Clown News Network
While normally a correction is posted both at the beginning and also at the of a revised article.
In typical CNN fashion, despite revising its original fiction from ‘Lieu grabbed a Crow Bar’ to the factually correct “Lie grabbed a Power Bar,’ and therefore changing the entire narrative of the story.
The Clown News Network decided to act like they did nothing wrong, and bury their correction notice only at the bottom of the article.
Mistaking a ProBar for a CrowBar is a LowBar for a reporter. https://t.co/qzsIQVt5Cv
