A fake news reporter resigned on Friday after a tweet making an unverified claim that yesterday’s Annapolis, MD newspaper shooter wore a “Make America Great Again” hat while carrying out his heinous act.

“I am ashamed of my tweet, which taints the good work of fair-minded journalists everywhere,” Conor Berry of The Republican wrote in his resignation letter. The Republican is a partner of Mass Live.

“We need to be more vigilant than ever to be fair and accurate in a climate in which we are scrutinized and criticized,” said Wayne Phaneuf, executive editor of The Republican. “The Republican newspaper and our partners at MassLive.com are committed to report the news with the truth paramount.”

Berry tried to manufacture a story, but ended up being the story.

Yesterday, a gunman opened fire at the Capital Gazette, a newspaper with which he had a longstanding grudge. He killed five and injured others.

Big League Politics reported:

“Jarrod Warren Ramos, 38, of Laurel, MD has been named as the suspect. Ramos reportedly lost a libel claim against the paper in 2012.

Ramos was found guilty of harassment in 2013 and sentenced to probation. He lost an appeal for a trial by jury in 2015.

In an email exchange between Ramos and several staff members of the Capital Gazette from November 2016, Ramos lashed out at the paper for apparently removing a comment he made from a story they ran about his harassment case.”

BLP Passage Ends.
