Quad Cities Anchor Fooled by Fake Story

KWQC Anchor David Nelson tweeted out a story yesterday about how Presidential hopeful Ted Cruz wants Veterans to to raise funds by selling cookies like the girl scouts.

It was an interesting story to say the least, it was also not true. The fake story, made to look like it came from USA Today, it did not.

It didn't take long for Cruz’s communications director Amanda Carpenter to call Nelson out:

Nelson pulled the original tweet and they offered up this:

This seems to be happening more and more with TV news people. Check the link and the story before rushing off to tweet it. It will save yourself some embarrassment and most of all, help you keep your credibility.

Just saying....
