In case you missed it, this morning on ‚ÄúFOX & Friends,‚ÄĚ Donald Trump once again pushed the debunked Crowdstrike conspiracy theory:

Trump is still, even at this late date, spreading the debunked CrowdStrike conspiracy theory.
There was no one server given to CrowdStrike. And there wasn't a Ukranian company. https://t.co/07Veqf5l2d

This sort of thing is decidedly ‚Ä¶ not helpful.
That said, though, there‚Äôs also something annoying about media firefighters who‚Äôve been more than willing to buy into any conspiracy theory involving Trump calling him out for this:
Can't emphasize enough that this is 9/11-truther, the-moon-landing-was-faked level nutso. https://t.co/UJH42cU6p4

And there‚Äôs something extremely extra-annoying about this response from CNN hall monitor (and resident Fox News expert) Brian Stelter:
Will it even make the nightly news tonight? https://t.co/EQBSrLYyaN

Look, everybody. Mr. Reliable Sources himself is worried that what he believes should be a major story will be overlooked by major media outlets on the nightly news.
Did ABC Epstein cover up story even make CNN news feeds at all?

Kind of like the ABC Epstein coverup you ignored?

I know what won‚Äôt make the nightly news tonight‚Ä¶.#EpsteinCoverup

Dude ‚Äď you actively work to hide the media‚Äôs role in helping a pedophile and you‚Äôre gonna complain about what makes the news?

Did we mention that Stelter himself has trafficked in Trump-related conspiracy theories?
How much play did you give the whole "Melania Trump is missing"? pic.twitter.com/DjmhW6wJlH

A decent amount, in fact.
Don‚Äôt know. What did Zucker tell you guys to put on tonight?

The lack of self awareness you have astounds me every day.

Brian's lack of self-awareness is so astounding I legitimately wonder how he's able to perform basic day-to-day tasks without hurting himself. https://t.co/IdQt0heFDH
