ABC’s Brian Ross put out a false report about Michael Flynn that went viral and made some liberals ecstatic.
From Daily Caller:
“[Flynn is prepared to testify, we are told by a confidant, against President Trump, against members of the Trump family, and others in the White House,” Ross reported. “He is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate Donald Trump, ordered him to make contact with the Russians, which contradicts all that Donald Trump has said at this point.”
This report, was of course, false.
But it immediately went viral, convincing many liberals that here, finally, was the smoking gun for which they hoped to get Trump.
One reaction that was freaky beyond belief was that of The View’s Joy Behar.
This video of Joy Behar cheering the Flynn news this morning is a good case study for how partisans disseminate information. She has only the smallest, most basic idea of what has happened, and she treats it as a game changer anyway. You wonder how “fake news” spreads? Watch: pic.twitter.com/NFVUIMj2K2

She not only read it loud on air, but she tweeted it to her 900,000 followers twice.
As well as this:

No, it’s no secret that she despises Trump.
But her reaction and that of the audience is just sick.
If in fact it were true, if indeed there were actually collusion, that would be sad or concerning one might think. And the thought of how it might tear the country apart would be very chilling.
But it’s sort of impossible to commit election collusion with a conversation that took place after the election.
But for liberals like Joy Behar, it’s damn the country, whatever has them achieve their ultimate political goal of getting rid of Trump is what’s important.
They didn’t care that the false story caused the market to take a dive.
The sharp slide in the stock market came within minutes of an ABC News report that Flynn is prepared to testify that Trump directed him to make contact with Russians. https://t.co/0Muyz3cZfZ pic.twitter.com/PtBgdLY3CC

It took hours for ABC to correct the original false story, it was up pretty much of Friday going viral.
And The View left their fake tweets up for 12 hours and didn’t pull them until they were chastised by Kellyanne Conway.
Kellyanne Conway noticed this morning that at that time the “fake news” tweet from “The View” was still published and they were still helping spread a bogus story. The @TheView tweet was deleted shortly after Conway’s criticism:

They finally took it down after Conway’s tweet.
But not before it had thousands of retweets.
The video Americans probably would have loved to have seen, after viewing this one?
When she found out the truth, the look on her face.
