Accuracy in Media

A staffer for a congressional Democrat tweeted out an edited video of an event at the Trump White House, where President Donald Trump allegedly ignored a wheelchair-bound child when he shook hands with everyone else.

Liberals were outraged and the tweet was retweeted (i.e. re-shared) by the likes of Keith Olbermann and author J.K. Rowling. The irony is that when the allegation was debunked, the staffer deleted the original tweet and apologized, “Deleted an earlier tweet because it turned out to be missing some context. Apologies.”

Here’s the video that the staffer tweeted out:

Another fake news outrage over a nothing burger.
