Moronic NBC Got Tricked into Feeding North Korea Propaganda. The Internet Roasts Them.
If you're having a rough day, just remind yourself: at least you're not NBC right now. The network just made itself look like a parade of giant, furry rumps. So, it's a regular Wednesday. Remember Lester Holt's trip to North Korea? Of course not, because you you don't torture yourself by suffering through liberal media. Allow us to catch you up to speed.

This is the footage they ran of the "flourishing" ski resort. Only problem? None of that was real.
NBC News is reeling after “Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt appears to have been badly fooled by North Korean propagandists -- giving a cheery report from a ski resort in the Hermit Kingdom that looked to be bustling when it was widely known to actually be a ghost town.
Holt -- who returned early from North Korea after scathing reviews -- reported for “Nightly News” from the Masikryong ski resort on Monday, a facility that is the brainchild of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and is typically empty. The resort, built to create the appearance of a prosperous nation, was largely deserted during peak 2017 ski season, according to multiplereports.
But for Holt’s appearance, the North Korean government appears to have brought in skiers — wearing identical outfits — and staged the scene, something Holt did not appear to realize.The resort is a “source of immense pride for a country trying to present a new and modern face to the world,” Holt said during his report.

NBC spreading fake news while praising an evil regime? How leftist of them. If you're ever curious as to why the term "fake news" was coined, look no further than this NBC special. Or almost anything the assorted morons within liberal news vomit onto a chyron.
While we're talking North Korea:
