The media is in panic mode after President Trump racked up another major victory on Thursday. The president ordered the airstrike that removed yet another one of the world's most dangerous terrorists from the face of the planet. Earlier, Matt and Leah covered some of the liberal media's more ridiculous attempts to spin the death of America's sworn enemy as a huge disaster for Trump and the entire world. But the hits just keep on coming.
The New York Times returned to their deep well of fake news in order to criticize Trump after the death of Qassem Soleimani. New York Times reporter Farnaz Fassihi was able to find propaganda pushed by an Iranian terrorist organization, which she then shared on Twitter as if it were real news. The propaganda came from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and claimed that ballistic missiles were striking a U.S. military base in Iraq. The Trump Administration designated the IRGC a Foreign Terrorist Organization back in April 2019
Fassihi tweeted, "Breaking: Unconfirmed reports of ballistic missiles hitting largest US military base Ain Al-Assad in #Iraq & massive explosions, via IRGC Telegram channels." Hours later, the reporter deleted her original tweet.

The Times reporter was also criticized for initially sharing a video of the terrorist reciting poetry when news about the airstrike and Soleimani's death first broke. Apparently in the Trump era, it's important for the liberal media to humanize any terrorists that are killed under orders of the president.
No bad economy, no Baghdadi, no quid pro quo, no Soleimani -- Trump better leave the liberal media with something to campaign on or we should expect to see a lot more fake news ahead of this year's presidential election.
