CNN Incorrectly States Only Dems Prayed At Congressional Baseball Game


CNN was called out for fake news when they incorrectly tweeted that only Democratic congressmen gathered for a prayer before Thursday’s Congressional Baseball Game.

The CNN Politics account tweeted out a photo with the caption, “Members of the Democratic team gather on the field for a prayer before the Congressional Baseball Game.”

However, as Fox News pointed out, members of both teams actually gathered for the prayer.

Shaking my head @CNN & @CNNPolitics. They really did this. They lie like this with a purpose. #CongressionalBaseballGame

CNN appears to have deleted their initial tweet but they didn’t issue a correction until 8:39 AM EDT Friday, at least half a day later.
