Did CNN Report That Antifa ‘Claimed Responsibility’ for Storming Capitol Hill?
|Alec Dent||Jan 7||37||9|
There is no reporting on CNN’s website to back up this claim, and the image bears signs of being fake: “Capitol Hill,” for example, is misspelled as “Capital Hill.” The real image can be seen here, and shows instead that the chyron reads “The Presidential Election: Congress Counts the Vote.”
Matt Dornic, head of strategic communications at CNN, told The Dispatch Fact Check that the image “has been sloppily edited to spread a bogus narrative” and affirmed that “CNN did not report the information in the chyron.”
