Stand by for an instructive example of how false narratives and talking points are amplified by inaccurate media coverage. I will chain the tweest as replies to this one for those who are interested. #Wray #Horowitz #NoBias It’s more reason you cannot necessarily believe what’s reported and repeated, no matter how many are reporting and repeating it.
