Man points camera at ice – seconds later he captures the impossible on film as a piece of glacier the size of the Lower Manhattan falls into the ocean.

Shocking news: Conway Lied Deliberately

Shocking, I know. Who could have guessed?

Last week, Trump's mouthpiece Kellyanne Conway tried to justify his Muslim ban by talking about how Iraqi refugees had planned and perpetrated the "Bowling Green Massacre." This came as quite a surprise to the residents of Bowling Green, not to mention the rest of the country, since this massacre simply doesn't exist. She made it up out of whole cloth to justify a policy.

Conway later claimed that she had simply misspoken a word, and that she was really referring to two Iraqi refugees who had lived in Bowling Green and been arrested for conspiring to help people in Iraq acquire IED's.

Except, no. Cosmopolitan did a bit of journalism to it, and found that she had been using the "Bowling Green massacre" as a talking point with the press all week. In fact, in an earlier interview with Cosmo, she had gone further, describing it as a massacre of US soldiers in Bowling Green.

Which is to say: the entire thing was a deliberate lie by Conway.

I'm not editing any papers right now, but if I were, I'd have a pretty clear directive for my newsroom: no further coverage of anything Conway says. If she does something, like shoot up a school, you can cover that, but her utterances are approximately as likely to reflect reality as those of the guy with the "The World Will End Tomorrow At Noon" sandwich board outside. And frankly, his story is more likely to be interesting.

For those who want more details, the WP has a summary of her "BGM" uses so far here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/02/06/kellyanne-conways-bowling-green-massacre-wasnt-a-slip-of-the-tongue-shes-said-it-before/?utm_term=.98589cfe0d9a
