Our Republic’s fall will have many causes, but chief among them will be the habit of some Americans to use ‘The View’ as their fount of news. The panel of cackling borderline idiots is so far removed from what is going on that they have to use a telescope to read the headlines.
When ABC’s Brian Ross sprinted to the camera to report, “[Flynn is prepared to testify, we are told by a confidant, against President Trump, against members of the Trump family, and others in the White House. He is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate Donald Trump, ordered him to make contact with the Russians, which contradicts all that Donald Trump has said at this point.”
As everyone soon learned, reports American News Hub, the report was false. In spite of this, Joy Behar took time out on ‘The View’ to read verbatim, what Ross had reported. She could barely contain herself while reading the quote and exploded into raptures of ecstasy She afterward tweeted out the false report to her mindless fans.
This video of Joy Behar cheering the Flynn news this morning is a good case study for how partisans disseminate information. She has only the smallest, most basic idea of what has happened, and she treats it as a game changer anyway. You wonder how "fake news" spreads? Watch: pic.twitter.com/NFVUIMj2K2

Most likely the posting would have remained up if Kellyanne Conway had not drawn attention to it.
“Why is this celebratory tweet (and clip) on @TheView still active when their network @ABC was forced to correct the grievously false reporting it is based upon?” she asked on Twitter.
Shortly later, the lie was pulled, but not before being read and accepted as gospel by View zombies.
The question is, where was Twitter’s penchant for labeling this ‘fake news’ and an unverified report? Why didn’t they deactivate Behar’s account like they did to investigative journalist Laura Loomer and others?
We all know the answer to that.
