It’s the Republican National Convention, so not only will those in the mainstream media with the official title of fact-checker be calling out all the lies; everyone in the media will be fact-checking every speaker.

Not anymore he can’t.

Brian Stelter told us we’d be hearing a lot about fake news during the RNC, and he was right. CNN’s bringing it as always.
