NBC Couldn't Even Get This Right?

General Flynn resigned last night as National Security Adviser.  The reason was that he had not told the truth to Vice President Pence about some conversations he had with the Russian ambassador in December.  It was the lie that did him in, not the conversations with the Russians which were innocent enough.  So what was the NBC News headline?

Michael Flynn Resigns as National Security Adviser Over Talks With Russia

It seems that NBC couldn't resist trying to make the resignation about Russia rather than about Flynn's not telling the truth.  Russia, you see, ties into the silly narrative that somehow Putin and the Russians have their hooks in the Trump administration.  It's total nonsense, but the media pushes that narrative no matter what.

Even for something like this, the media is still feeding the American people fake news.
