New Republic Falls For Fake Picture Of Obama Skeet Shooting On Parody Site

 

 

 

” The liberal New Republic magazine, eager to prove that President Obama participates in skeet shooting even if Jay Carney can’t corroborate it, tweeted a picture of Obamaappearing to hold a shotgun while at Camp David on Tuesday. Shortly after tweeting it, the New Republic deleted it.

The reason? The photo was fake, and came from a parody website called whitehouse.gov1.info.

The site clearly says, “not the White House” on the top of the page, with the banner, “parody of whitehouse.gov.” ”
