GORKA TAKES ON "FAKE NEWS INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX"
Former Bill Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart, a CNN analyst, apologized for making up a story about two Republican senators discussing the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump.
Lockhart posted a fictional story on social media on Jan. 22 that included no disclaimer. The news analyst claimed that he overheard a conversation between two GOP senators who only watch Fox News.
“‘Is this stuff real? I haven’t heard any of this before. I thought it was all about a server. If half the stuff Schiff is saying is true, we’re up [expletive] creek. Hope the White House has exculpatory evidence,” Lockhart tweeted.
After the post circulated widely on Twitter, Lockhart said that he might have made up the conversation.
“Ok maybe I made up the convo, But you know that’s exactly what they’re thinking,” he said, defending himself. “Everyone relax,” he said in another post. “This is satire. Satire to make the point that Senators that are deciding the President’s fate who only watch Fox News have never heard this stuff before. Because Fox is part of the coverup.”
On Thursday, Lockhart apologized for the fabrication in a series of posts on Twitter.
