Over at MSNBC, you don’t see a lot of fact checking going on.
It’s a pretty fun job they have over there. They can just say whatever they want on live television without having to worry about being right.
A little while back, they blatantly lied about Planned Parenthood three times in a week and everyone just went about their day like it never happened. Very strange.
This week, another lie. Katy Tur went on T.V. and said that Trump’s travel ban is the reason an all-female Afghan robotics team had trouble getting into the United States.
Just one problem. That isn’t true.
From The Daily Caller:
MSNBC’s Katy Tur incorrectly blamed Donald Trump’s travel ban for the visa problems an all-female Afghan robotics team recently dealt with while trying to enter the U.S. for a competition.
The team had their visas denied twice before Trump intervened and granted them entry so that they could attend a national robotics competition.
Unfortunately, Tur is wrong to blame the travel ban for the robotics team’s woes, as Afghanistan isn’t even included on the president’s list of countries with restricted travel.
If you read this site at all, you know the name Katy Tur very well. She’s one of the most unhinged “reporters” over at MSNBC and that’s saying something.
Some of her greatest hits include pushing the infamous “17 intelligence agencies” lie, suggesting that Trump wants to murder reporters, and implying there is a connection between a Trump typo and nuclear war.
Not the sharpest tool in the shed.
