MSNBC cited a fake death total from Iranian State-Run Media.
Reckless for MSNBC to mention Iran claiming 30 US service members were killed when US officials are saying no casualties at this time. https://t.co/JOFrvvv11X pic.twitter.com/19L7yiEbgR

Even CNN called this out:
US official tells CNN that are no reports of US casualties at this time but an assessment is still underway. Reports @barbarastarrcnn

I will at least give it to MSNBC for pointing out where they got the claim. However, should we be pushing Iranian propaganda? What about the Americans watching at home wondering if 30 Americans actually did die.
Sadly, the truth is that MSNBC was using this to attack President Trump.
