We told you earlier how many blue-check journos and libs are in the process of sharing this article from 2014 on the conditions at Obama-era camps for unaccompanied minors crossing the border, which is embarrassing enough.
But when you make a mistake, just fess up to it, ‘eh? Because this just makes things worse. CNN’s Hadas Gold:
Deleted previous tweet because gave impression of recent photos (they’re from 2014)
— Hadas Gold (@Hadas_Gold) May 27, 2018
“Gave impression”? Really? Because Gold actually typed in “First Photos of separated migrant children at holding facility.” It’s not the auto-generated headline when you share an article to Twitter from the website:
No you did not “give the impression”. You flat out said it. pic.twitter.com/kGJ2PmPVgT

More likely this:
"Deleted previous tweet because it accurately reflected events that occurred during Obama's presidency"

Also of note, why didn’t she recognized these photos from the Obama years?
buried lede is that there are a lot of reporters today who don’t recognize these vividly terrible photos from four years ago. https://t.co/NhHkeXG8GA

Jon Favreau, Shaun King, Linda Sarsour and other libs just committed the greatest self-own in the history of Twitter https://t.co/gDEi2HwwcF
