Media admits it falsely reported Security Advisor nominee Michael Flynn spread ‘PizzaGate’ theory

The mainstream media has cried “fake news” so many times that they can’t keep their loose handle on the facts straight anymore.

The Washington Post and other liberal “journalists” falsely reported that National Security Advisor nominee Michael Flynn spread the #PizzaGate conspiracy that triggered one man to charge a Washington, D.C., pizzeria with a rifle.

“PizzaGate” is a theory that claims Hillary Clinton and her campaign manager John Podesta operated a child sex ring out of the Comet Ping Pong pizza joint.

The Washington Post claimed retired lieutenant general Michael Flynn spread the conspiracy theory on Twitter:

The restaurant’s owner and employees were threatened on social media in the days before the election after fake news stories circulated claiming that then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her campaign chief were running a child sex ring from the restaurant’s back rooms.

Even Michael Flynn, a retired general who President-elect Donald Trump has tapped to advise him on national security, shared the stories.

What Michael Flynn was referencing when he tweeted about “sex crimes w/children” was the TRUE story that Anthony Weiner — the husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin — is being investigated for soliciting sex with minors.

Liberal media then ironically pushed the conspiracy theory that Flynn was pushing the PizzaGate conspiracy theory.

Like a pack of hyenas, other mainstream media reporters piled on and blamed Flynn for inspiring the deranged armed man who threatened Comet Ping Pong with a rifle.

With egg on its face, the Washington Post later wrote a separate story confirming that “Michael Flynn’s tweet wasn’t actually about #PizzaGate.” But by then, the damage was done, since many people believe its original piece.

Adding to the confusion, General Flynn’s son, Michael Flynn Jr., apparently defended PizzaGate in a tweet.

The tweets enraged CNN anchor Jake Tapper so much that he cursed out Michael Flynn Jr. on social media:

“Michael, the police called [PizzaGate] a fictitious conspiracy theory tonight. Does someone have to die before you take that sh*t seriously?

Spreading this nonsense is dangerous. It is not the site of the satanic pedophilia cult. It is a f*cking pizzeria.”

Michael Flynn Jr. has since been let go from the Trump transition team.

“The younger Michael Flynn was helping his father with some administration and scheduling duties … he is no longer involved with transition efforts,” said Trump rep Jason Miller.
