The SPLC unleashed a tweetstorm this morning after releasing a report detailing “Harassment and Intimidation in the Aftermath of the Election.”

But when you click through and actually read the report, you quickly find that those 867 “confirmed” reports are no such thing:
In other word, this is “fake news.” Why can’t they just be honest?
