Liberals pounced on a tweet from the Fox News Research account after the terrorist attack in Barcelona that listed other vehicular attacks in 2017, saying that it should have included last weeks attack in Charlottesville, Va.

But in their haste to criticize the tweet, they ignored the European flags denoting the area of the world that the tweet was referring to.
Leaving out the Charlottesville attack is despicable. Shame on you.

It's real easy to use Google to identify recent vehicle based terror attacks. We see you missed Charlottesville. We also know why.

Matthew Gertz from Media Matters for America admitted that he erred.
Deleted this tweet — on closer examination there's a EU flag, which I could not make out on tweetdeck. My mistake. pic.twitter.com/pYyEwcKtx2
