Even in light of a national tragedy like the shooting of a Republican congressman, CNN cannot help but be partisan and divisive.
The network tweeted a photo of bipartisan lawmakers praying for Rep. Steve Scalise’s recovery before Thursday’s charity baseball game, but only gave credit to Democrats.

The video shows both Republicans and Democrats engaged in a pre-game moment of unity, but CNN found no need to mention the Republican’s presence.
Compare that to Fox News’ Fox Nation who credited both parties.

And then they wonder why the nation is as divided as it is.
Many on social media decided to set them straight.

Those are both parties praying on the field. Unreal that CNN will go THAT far to distort the truth.

These are Republicans and Democrats but that would muddle the CNN narrative of Only Dems are Good https://t.co/netzNJUeoZ

They corrected it within the thread, not with the same type of publicity they spread the first, fake news tweet with.

I honestly don’t understand why it’s so hard for anyone at CNN to just tell the truth.
BOTH teams were gathered on the field for prayer.
