Reporter Conor Berry SLAPPED BY KARMA After Falsely Claiming Annapolis Shooter Wore MAGA Hat
Reporter Conor Berry at The Republican resigned after publishing a “snarky, sarcastic, cynical remark” fake news Tweet that falsely indicated the suspect who is charged with killing five people at an Annapolis Maryland newspaper was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
How many other fake stories did he put out there? It’s hard to believe that was the only one off after 21 years. Has he started at CNN yet?
“In a follow-up interview with the Boston Globe, Berry said his tweet was a “snarky, sarcastic, cynical remark,” and lamented that his tweet gave more fuel to critics of the news media that believe reporters try to push a partisan agenda.” https://t.co/LsaaFBANwR pic.twitter.com/javs4Jgp9Q

Liberals keep up this 24/7 Trump Derangement Syndrome and we’ll see what happens comes November.
Folks, My 21-year career as a “journalist,” a fancy term that makes my skin crawl, frankly, came to a screeching halt yesterday with one stupid, regrettable tweet. Can’t take it back; wish I could. My sincere apologies to all good, hardworking reporters and to POTUS supporters.

Berry’s bio on Twitter now reads: “Former newspaper reporter.”
Berry took full responsibility for the tweet in a resignation notice posted Friday on The Republican’s website.
“I am ashamed of my tweet, which taints the good work of fair-minded journalists everywhere,” Berry said. More
When they lie, misinform, distort, spin, divide, inflame & violate their sacred duties while smearing and attacking @realDonaldTrump & his voters 90% of the time, they’re no longer a media but a Dem weapon of war attempting to overthrow a president so ARE THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE! pic.twitter.com/6Ml9T7oULY

The Democratic Party is deliberately whipping up support for disobedience to support their midterm bid. They & their media are literally one step away from calling for physical violence against Trump supporters. This isn’t going to end well.

How creepy to make up this garbage . . tweeting that the shooter dropped his MAGA hat on the newsroom floor before opening fire . . Sounds like the paper pushed him out to avoid a backlash.
Wonder if this so-called journalist fabricated anything else?
