This Is Why We Call It FAUX News

There was an about-face from Faux News host Tucker Carlson that needs to be made known.

Carlson had devoted coverage over two nights of his show last week to the accusation that CNN had scripted a question for a student (which was never asked) during last week’s gun town hall in South Florida.

The accusation, denied by CNN, still elicited this tweet from Pres. Trump: “School shooting survivor says he quit @CNN Town Hall after refusing scripted question. @TuckerCarlson. Just like so much of CNN, Fake News.”

But it was the conscienceless conservatives on FAUX News who were the ones  hyping and spreading false stories.

The AP reports that Glenn Haab, father of student Colton Haab, admitted that he omitted several words in an email that made it appear as though CNN was scripting questions.

Carlson used two nights to make gross inaccuracies and only backed off when the power of the real press and reporters in this nation took up the call for professional reporting.

The lesson to be learned is that we can see what happens when you peddle false information and insane conspiracy theories in order to pander to your viewership who you know will hang on to your every word without even thinking there might be a chance it couldn’t be true.  Does anyone else see how dangerous this can be? FAUX News knew it couldn’t verify the story, but they reported it anyway just to try and stick it to CNN.
