As tempting as it would be to call this fake news, technically speaking, members of the Democratic congressional baseball team are shown gathering for a prayer before Thursday night’s game. That’s … a really big team.

It’s possible there might be some Republicans mixed in with that crowd, who gathered at second base, the position played by Rep. Steve Scalise, who remains in critical condition after a second surgery Thursday.

Those are both parties praying on the field. Unreal that CNN will go THAT far to distort the truth.

I honestly don't understand why it's so hard for anyone at CNN to just tell the truth.
BOTH teams were gathered on the field for prayer.

CNN tweeted, then doubled down and retweeted without fixing the error. Both teams featured in the picture. Please fix.

Quite obvious this is BOTH teams. Why would you intentionally mislead people? This is pathetic and the kind of behavior that foments hate

Come on CNN…not helping the cause

People mock Fox News for "fair and balanced," meanwhile CNN acts as the PR arm of the Democrat party.

And suddenly it's ok to pray

CNN’s certainly working on a fix … but if you’re going to mention Republicans praying, then you’re stuck trying to fit words like evangelical and fundamentalist and Christian and women’s health care into 140 characters.
BOTH sides, not just Democrats. Subtle propoganda like this is why the country is so divided and you're doing it on purpose. #CNNisISIS

This is weak, CNN.

That is both teams. Are you serious with this? And you wonder why no one trusts you anymore. You expose your insane radical bias daily

Perfect chance to not keep losing credibility….blown…..

There was that long wished for bipartisan unity on display right in front of them, and the dropped the ball.

Loretta Lynch recused herself? Looks like CNN added some false memories to the spin cycle https://t.co/rzmEuxMjdl
