Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee, Wisconsin called out the liberal mainstream media on Thursday, saying that it was in fact them who created the 'fake news' phenomenon.

Clarke called the “hands up, don’t shoot” thoery of the August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri lie, blaming CNN and MSNBC for the spread of fake news.  

“It’s the anniversary of that fateful summer night in August of 2014 that started with the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ lie that was propagated by every mainstream liberal media across this country,” Clarke said. “The New York Times, The Washington Post, the LA Times, the Chicago Tribune, CNN, MSNBC all propagated that ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ lie. It was from that time forward that this concept of fake news was talked about.”
