Wait, Chris Hayes (of all people) announced unverified reports from Iranian state-run media on-air? I’m shocked, shocked, I tell you!
MSNBC helped Iran push the false claim that 30 U.S. soldiers were killed tonight in their attack. Zero were killed.
This isn’t just fake news, this is so damn disrespectful to the family members of those deployed.

Hayes defended himself by saying he emphasized the reports from Iran he mentioned were uncorroborated. So, it’s okay to spread propaganda with an asterisk as long as it damages President Trump politically?
