The media is quick to attack “fake news”; unless the fake news attacks Trump.
This week a video emerged that implied VP Pence had staged handing out PPE, but used empty boxes.

“Mike Pence pretending to carry empty boxes of PPEs into a hospital is the perfect metaphor for who he is and what he’s doing,” Jimmy Kimmel said while narrating the clip. “A big box of nothing, delivering another box of nothing.”
However, the full clip was not shown and after it emerged Kimmel was forced to make an apology.
Jimmy Kimmel is lying.

What the video Kimmel aired failed to show was Pence putting the boxes down and joking with an aide how the empty ones would be lighter to carry.
Sadly Kimmel’s apology was done with a jibe at the Trump administration.
it would appear that @vp was joking about carrying empty boxes for a staged publicity stunt. The full video reveals that he was carrying full boxes for a staged publicity stunt. My apologies. I know how dearly this administration values truth. https://t.co/hI9cO4lxcX
