Another day, another MSNBC analyst shares bizarre fake news from the Ukrainian front.
One month ago MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance shared pictures from the woods claiming he was in Ukraine fighting against the Russians. This was just nuts.
Now MSNBC war expert and retired 4-star General Barry R. McCaffrey mistook a video game for Ukraine war footage. The Post Millennial reported:
On Monday, retired four-star general and MSNBC “military analyst” Barry R. McCaffrey posted a clip of video game footage to Twitter. Alongside it he claimed it was a display of strength from Ukraine’s air defense. It’s actually footage from a video game.
The clip in question came from YouTube’s “shorts” section, and is titled “Russian MiG-29’s Get Shot Down By Air Defense System | Arma 3 #Shorts #Airdefense #Arma3.”
Benny Johnson on Twitter reported on this war game tweet and exposed that the brilliant Max Boot also shared it.
And now WaPo Columnist @MaxBoot is amplifying this “harmful misinformation”
These are the same people who lobby Big Tech companies to deplatform conservatives over “mean Tweets” and memes.

What’s the deal with fake news pushing the war story that Ukraine is winning over Russia? They use video games and dress up in military gear to make their point. This is seriously dangerous fake news.
