A story in The Washington Post that accused a prominent Washington Post columnist of peddling “fake news” and peddling falsehoods has gone viral.
The story appeared to be a “revelation” by Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), a senior member of the House Intelligence Committee.
But it turned out to be false.
And so, The Washington Times went to town debunking Conaway’s claim, and finding out that, yes, the post wasn’t even a “Revelation,” but rather a fake news story.
The Post was forced to issue a correction after receiving a flood of comments and feedback on its story.
The Post apologized, and apologized again, after receiving more complaints.
But there’s more to the story than meets the eye.
In fact, the story is not just about Rep. Conaway.
It’s also about Rep, Ted Lieu (D-CA), and his efforts to push a false narrative that the US government is waging a war against ISIS and that the President of the United States is somehow “giving orders” to execute the president of the world’s most powerful country.
There’s also a lot more to this story than that, but the best way to learn more about it is to read The Washington Report.
