As Twitchy told you earlier, a BBC reporter helped get the ball rolling on a story that turned out to be totally bogus:

The story was debunked not soon after the latest bit of #FakeNews started spreading like wildfire:

But that didn’t stop NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell from running with it in a reply to Trump snark from a HuffPo reporter:

#JOURNALISM! It was just last month that Mitchell said of the Trump administration “I have never seen anything like this where people flat-out lie.”

As of the time this story was posted, there was no correction or retraction in Mitchell’s Twitter feed.
