The left-wing media can’t stop spewing fake news. MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle was forced to apologize after falsely reporting that Fox News held its Christmas party at President-elect Donald Trump’s swanky new hotel in Washington, D.C.
Ruhle bleated the fake news while discussing the potential conflicts of interest that Trump faces as president. On Friday morning, Ruhle brayed:
“Think about the hotel in Washington now. The RNC is having their Christmas party there. Fox News had their Christmas party there. That doesn’t feel a little hinky?”
The only problem is, Fox News hasn’t had its Christmas party yet, and has no plans to hold it at the Trump D.C. hotel. Their party will be held at the Liaison Capitol Hill Hotel, according to a Fox rep.
Almost 5 hours after pushing the fake news, Stephanie Ruhle offered an insincere apology on air.
“This is some serious business that I need to share. I need to apologize to the audience. Earlier today in a segment I stated that the Fox network held their holiday party at Trump’s D.C. hotel. I was wrong. We’ve since learned that neither Fox network nor an affiliate held any party at Trump’s Washington hotel. I stand corrected.
I apologize for the error. I am truly, truly sorry. The mistake was entirely my fault. And of course, I wish all my friends over at Fox a very happy holiday no matter where you have your party.”
It should come as no surprise that MSNBC was the purveyor of this latest bit of fake news, since they employ Brian Williams — the Grand Poobah of fake news.
With a straight face, the King of Make-Believe claimed that fake news led to Donald Trump’s victory. All this propaganda by the mainstream press is why 94% of the public say they do not trust the media.
Oh — and here’s another fake news rumor that has been shot to pieces: Trump tweeted Saturday morning that he will NOT be working on “The Apprentice” during his presidency.
This fake news has been bloviated by CNN, MSNBC and other mainstream media around the clock.
