CNN: The Most Busted Name In News

CNN’s editor-at-large, Chris Cillizza, screamed on Twitter yesterday after a video circulated online showing Poland’s First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda appearing to walk past President Trump’s outstretched hand to shake Melania’s instead.
Trump and Melania were on stage with their Polish counterparts, Agata and her husband, President Andrzej Duda, in Warsaw for official photographs when the footage was filmed.
The problem for Cillizza:  the longer cut of the video shows the so-called “snub” was little more than unfortunate timing.
President Duda angrily came to the defense of his wife tweeting: 
Cillizza recanted in later tweets, saying he “laughed” at the video, but that “there probably wasn't an intent. I think Trump was out of her line of sight.”  He added: “It was a funny video of a misunderstanding!  Nothing more!  The same thing has happened to me a billion times!”
T. Becket Adams succinctly pointed out, “Here’s a friendly tip:  Coming across as a girl who is welcoming the Beatles on their first visit to the United States is a very bad and unprofessional look for supposedly professional media commentators.  Try a little dignity please.”
Adams continued, “It would be awesome if we didn’t have to Zapruder the news cycle because reporters can’t keep it together long enough to figure out the truth of certain events.  Can we please just have a little bit more restraint?”
