Welcome To The Information Age

Diane Rehm, who otherwise is a reasonable and reliable interviewer, blew a whole in the bottom of the boat yesterday.

WAMU radio host Diane Rehm falsely stated in an interview with Bernie Sanders on Wednesday that the Vermont senator has dual Israeli citizenship.

In an unusual exchange in the middle of the interview with the recently declared 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, Rehm said she got the information about his alleged citizenship from a “list.” Rehm’s show is heard on National Public Radio-affiliate stations across the country.

She later apologized and explained that she’d read about his citizenship on Facebook.  Yeah, the same place your crazy uncle posts pictures of President Obama as a witch doctor and your source for videos of cats dancing with chipmunks.
