Fox News lied all day about Comey leaking classified info — then spent 10 seconds correcting it

Fox News repeatedly, and breathlessly, reported that former FBI Director James Comey had leaked “top secret information” in his memo about Donald Trump trying to pressure him to drop the investigation of Michael Flynn.

Fox News conveniently pushed the Comey story to deflect attention from the growing scandal over Donald Trump Jr.’s self-professed collusion in agreeing to meet with a Russian government official to receive incriminating information about Hillary Clinton in an effort to help Trump’s election.
