As Twitchy reported earlier this morning, Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald pushed out a total lie about Trump supporters booing astronaut John Glenn, the American hero who passed away yesterday. It was a staggering example of how such lies from the Left can spread.

Curious, isn’t it? How the media wants to lecture everyone ELSE on “fake news,” when they are the perpetrators.
Yes, just a mistake to slander people you despise because of who they voted for. It happens. https://t.co/l9NDGCjPeR

So weird! It’s almost as if alleged journalists do that on purpose, but that has to be crazy talk, right? Well, Eichenwald didn’t get away with it this time. Happy warriors schooled the tool and it was awesome.

@kurteichenwald Booing was aimed at protesters who disrupted Trump's praise of Glenn.

Remember – retraction journalism is worse than clickbait. Just say whatever the fuck you want and "correct" yourself later. Damage done. https://t.co/qlS05Xjcho

"I believe I was in error" translates to "I suffer chronic butt hurt and I am an insufferable ass". Basically. https://t.co/ISKR1i5P5u

Snort. Yep, keep digging, media. We LOVE it and so does President-elect Trump.
And some exit advice for the poor fool:
Hey. It might help if you try objective and unbias journalism. https://t.co/uxrUowubzU
