In the latest installment of actual fake news, we have “journalist” Ian Bremmer tweeting a quote and attributing it to President Trump (which he has now deleted).

Nope, Trump never said it, as Bremmer later admitted (and then deleted).

No, the point is that journalists who aspire to have credibility with readers do not tweet out fake quotes from the president of the United States who happens to be traveling internationally.

Bremmer’s attempt at teaching a lesson about Trump ended up turning into a lesson for Bremmer about Twitter spankings.

Even Tommy Vietor went after him.

In the process of trying to make a point about the president in an extremely irresponsible way, Bremmer ended up making a point about his own profession.
