Oops! NY Times, other media hoaxed by fake Pope Francis Twitter account

We last wrote about New York Times reporter Robert Mackey when he used a progressive blog as a source for his smear job on Steven Crowder. On Wednesday, he reported at The Lede that Pope Francis has a Twitter account.


NBC Washington and Boston.com also reported on the account:


The @JMBergoglio account quickly attracted more than 100,000 followers.

But oops! It was a fake.


Twitter dropped the ban hammer on the fake @JMBergoglio account and corrections were issued.


Those media outlets had plenty of company.
