“Lib ‘journalist’ blasts Twitchy for ‘fake’ pro-abortion photo, ends up eating crow:”

In The Atlantic Wire, senior writer Elspeth Reeve has produced an execrable article entitled “The Conservative Meme of Satan-Loving Texas Pro-Choice Protesters Is a Bit Off.”  Why is the conservative meme off? Because “only five protesters yelled about Satan.”

Yes, five. Just like the video linked by Twitchy and others shows.

As Twitchy reminds its readers, “Elspeth Reeve … such a stickler for factual accuracy!”

It’s particularly ironic that her “correction” appeared in what’s left of the Atlantic, particularly given their own faith-based issues in recent months:
