CNN Tonight host Don Lemon trapped himself in a lie this week, falsely claiming that the Fox News Channel (or “Trump TV” in his mind) had never covered the White House resignation of Hope Hicks. He offered “apologies for that” on Thursday but it was anything but that as he channeled Dan Rather and Michael Wolff in arguing that the spirit of his lie was true.

During the 10:00 p.m. Eastern hour, Lemon hit pause on the discussion about the White House drama to state that he “said something last night that was an attempt to make a broader point about Fox News and how they downplay bad news about the administration” and “most people understood” what he was saying.
