FAKE NEWS: MSNBC Doubles Down on False Yemen Reporting

Despite reports that President Trump’s first raid in Yemen yielded actionable intelligence, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell continued to call the military operation unsuccessful Friday.

After questioning the Trump administration’s claim that the raid obtained critical intelligence, Mitchell said, “[MSNBC’s] own reporting saying that you can’t call a raid with so many civilian casualties, the loss of an American Navy SEAL, loss of the Osprey, you can’t call that a success.”

Earlier Friday, CNN reported that the military had identified important intelligence data that military intelligence was acting upon.

CNN also pointed out that airstikes in Yemen had increased drastically. MSNBC echoed this point, but failed to connect it to intelligence gathered in the raid.
