When John Brennan and James Comey say that Russia spread fake news stories to slander Hillary Clinton and puff up Donald Trump, the first example I would cite is the false report by Brett Baier of Fox News on Nov. 2 that Hillary Clinton was about to be indicted.
Two days later, Baier admitted on camera that his report was wrong.
When I Googled “Hillary Clinton indicted” on Nov. 5, it produced five pages of “conservative” and “alt right” web sites reporting Baier’s false story before it produced any articles citing his retraction.
