CNN reported the other day that Twitchy regular Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) “grabbed a crowbar” before leaving his office on January 6 when rioters took over the Capitol, which, to be honest, was pretty awesome.
Alas, it wasn’t true.
According to this correction, the California Dem grabbed a “ProBar energy bar” which would be slightly less effective for use in self-defense:

Take a bow, CNN:
I'd like to think that, had I reported this story, that I would stop and think: Wait, why would Ted Lieu have a crowbar in his office?
In reality, this is the very definition of too good to check. https://t.co/zdeSSu1KKL

But we really would’ve respected Rep. Lieu if he did have a crowbar in his office for just such a situation:
