Ben Swann, anchor of the CBS Nightly News in Atlanta, devoted a “Reality Check” segment to the now infamous Pizzagate. As you may know, this explosive story came out in November and was followed by an intense mass media campaign to discredit it.
Ben Swann revisited some aspects of the story and asked “why hasn’t it been officially investigated”?
As expected, backlash against Swann soon followed. Here are some of the headlines that popped up around the web.
Other publications such as the Washington Post published strong worded articles taking aim at Swann’s segment while making sure to never go too deeply into the subject.
“And there’s even more in this gem of video slime, including references to Dennis Hastert and certain photographs, though we won’t dive into those details here.”

The video has been removed from the CBS 46 website but can still be viewed on Ben Swann’s YouTube channel.
