A 4Chan user has taken credit for supplying MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell with the false information he then went and reported.
NEVER GIVE IT UP: MSNBC’s Lawrence retracts Fake Russia story
In a 4Chan post claiming credit for the hoax, an anonymous user wrote, “here to claim my prize. It’s easy to send an annoymous tip to a a trump hating new organization and watch them report it with no fact checking. I send the attached email to Lawrence O’Donnell yesterday and he reported it!!! I didn’t think it would work but the bait was too juicy. Now he is disgraced and discredited. All nbc email addresses are [email protected] They are begging for tips so I sent one!!,” they added, “Hi Ben Collins! Hi Hilary!”
The post also contained a screenshot of the email that they claim to have sent the host, in which they claimed to be the wife of a Chief Loan Officer for Deutsche Bank. The email did not contain a date or time stamp, so it cannot be confirmed.
We may never know whether this is a true story or not but this would be a fail of epic proportions if it is true. If it turns out that his source is nothing more than a random person who emailed him it will be a new low for even MSNBC.
I’ll keep an eye on this story.
