On Friday, the fake correction went viral on Twitter with many users believing it to be real. “CORRECTION: A previous version of this story misstated that Sen. Ted Cruz was seen wearing a pin featuring a QAnon symbol,” the ‘correction’ read. “It was later discovered this was not a QAnon pin, but a Doritos snack chip stuck to his suit.”
Friends, I regret to inform you that this is not real. There is no CNN Doritos correction. pic.twitter.com/VeeNakOcHj
The funny – but bogus – image was shared on social media by several, prominent verified figures before CNN reporter Daniel Dale declared, “Friends, I regret to inform you that this is not real. There is no CNN Doritos correction.”
After some journalists accusedhim of ruining the fun, Dale added that although the fake correction was funny, some people had started “using it to bash CNN,” and so he felt compelled to set the record.
Not everyone at CNN saw the fun in the image, however. Head of Strategic Communications Matt Dornic revealed that CNN had received inquiries about the image. “I don’t think fake news is that funny,” he wrote.
