As Twitchy told you, last night, Rachel Maddow breathlessly reported that the White House had altered a video of Donald Trump’s joint presser with Vladimir Putin, calling the White House’s actions “a form of information warfare and it is being waged against us.” Just one teensy little problem: the White House had done no such thing.

But Brian Stelter wasn’t terribly concerned about that. Mr. “Reliable Sources” himself took Maddow’s story and ran with it:

It’s bad enough that Stelter’s narrative got debunked by the friggin’ Washington Post. But it’s downright embarrassing that a White House reporter at Stelter’s own network wound up debunking it, too:

Ooooooooof.

No, but he will be grabbing a second shovel to dig his own grave:

Good Lord.

Something tells us you’re right.
