ABC News will walk away with today’s Fake News award. It is just a trifle of a thing but it has big meaning. They were reporting on the plea deal between former Trump advisor Michael Flynn and Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. That will land him a sweeter deal than what he was facing. In return, the mainstream media is expecting Flynn to give up President Trump and/or his staffers. All this is in quest of the mystical Russian collusion.

There is just one significant problem with ABC News’ report: CNN reported late on Friday that an “ABC News spokesperson” said that “‘World News’ will clarify that this should be president-elect Trump, not candidate Trump.”
NOTE: ABC News has deleted all existence of the video off their twitter account.
