CNN isn’t reporting this afternoon that the United States has struck Syria. Steven Cook, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, apologized for spreading the false report, but not before sending shockwaves through Twitter in the space of five minutes.

Skeptics confirmed the story for themselves by switching over to CNN.

Sorry you guys.

Heck, CNN’s newsroom has demonstrated that CNN is not a reliable source for breaking news either.
