Former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has been found guilty on five charges for faking a hate crime in Chicago. All along the way, many in the media (not to mention Dem politicians and lib blue checks) covered themselves in more glory and proved yet again why they should never be trusted.
Instead of serving up a helping of contrition, CNN’s Oliver Darcy is taking a different and not at all unexpected approach:

CNN is garbage.
Rather than take the L – of which they have countless – they instead double-down and blame Fox for their own reprehensible reporting. If only those clowns could feel shame; alas, they do not. https://t.co/AC8M2JwMVs pic.twitter.com/qwOgrK3kRz

The “Republicans pounce” approach never stops being pathetic, but this one is next-level.
CNN: "We get everything wrong and it is Right-wing's fault"

Instead of just admitting they were helping push a narrative instead of reporting the facts, it’s easier for some in the media to just accuse those who noticed their hackery of seizing and pouncing.
Another attack in MAGA country!

Slightly more objective headline:
HOW THE MEDIA FELL FOR YET ANOTHER SHALLOW HOAX, PROVING AGAIN WHAT MOST OF WHAT CONSERVATIVES HAVE BEEN SAYING FOR YEARS.https://t.co/tZn3tC9q0c

The corporate media lies… gets called out on it… and tries to play victim.
They all deserve to fail and be unemployed.https://t.co/0jkFa50dvQ

It would be nice for the media to be introspective just once, but that’s obviously asking way too much.
Alternate headline: How the facts make media look bad. https://t.co/FrQPtvzQcZ

Leftist media participates openly in identity politics.
Backs the wrong horse.
Plays the victim.

That’s the revolving door of #Journalism these days.
