[See NewsBusters for more.] CNN's Joh Avlon joined CNN Tonight host Michael Smerconish on Tuesday for another of of his pretentious "reality check" segments. This particular instance involved using the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor to hype the possibility of a second civil war.

Coming out of a commercial, Smerconish suggested that 2021 is not that different than 1941, "Today marks 80 years since the infamous surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, a day that would change the course of our nation's history. Just as the strength of our democracy was tested then, we find ourselves yet again in a different but just as dangerous war on truth and democracy and science."
