Fake News Alert: Liberal Journalist Blames Trump For This

A Reuters editor tweeted soon after the shooting of the Capital Gazette in Maryland, blaming Donald Trump for the shooting.

Fox News reports:

A top editor at Reuters apologized on Thursday night after blaming President Trump for the deadly Capital Gazette shooting in a now-deleted tweet that was sent during a “state of emotional distress,” but he might still be disciplined by the international news service.

Reuters Breakingviews Editor Rob Cox admitted that he “responded emotionally and inappropriately” after being called out for jumping to conclusions prior to the facts emerging. Police said the suspected gunman, eventually identified as Jarrod W. Ramos, targeted the newspaper after a lengthy feud regarding a 2012 defamation lawsuit.

“This is what happens when @realDonaldTrump calls journalists the enemy of the people. Blood is on your hands, Mr. President. Save your thoughts and prayers for your empty soul,” Cox wrote in the deleted tweet, according to TheWrap.

Cox apologized in a seriesof four tweets once it became clear that Ramos’ motive predated Trump entering the world of politics.

Making such an egregious accusation so soon after the event, especially coming a top editor at a national new organization, only confirms to many what they already think of these organizations: FAKE NEWS.
