2. Shapiro has been caught propagating a lie

Reached Tuesday, Shapiro acknowledged “Friends of Hamas” might not exist. But he said his story used “very, very specific language” to avoid flatly claiming it did.

“The story as reported is correct. Whether the information I was given by the source is correct I am not sure,” he said.


But his 'story' (now revealed to be the fictional variety) said:

On Thursday, Senate sources told Breitbart News exclusively that they have been informed one of the reasons that President Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has not turned over requested documents on his sources of foreign funding is that one of the names listed is a group purportedly called ‘Friends of Hamas.’

We know there is no such document. Dan Friedman never said there was a document. So the Senate source made up that lie. But Shapiro has passed it on, without checking. Shapiro needs to stop pretending to be a journalist, and find a more honest profession than what he's doing now. Like running a 3 card trick scam.
