Nobody asked, not a soul, but CNN’s Oliver Darcy thought he needed to alert the world to the fact that OANN’s White House correspondent Chanel Rion brought her own chair to Press briefings.
Except he couldn’t manage to get the story right.
For anyone who isn’t familiar, Oliver Darcy is a reporter, editor and political commentator who works for CNN and struggles to get his stories straight while crying for anyone he doesn’t like to be banned from the world.
In the latest gaffe from Darcy, the CNN reporter thought he’d take a shot at OANN. Complaining and whining that President Trump allows the popular alternative news networks to have access to White House press briefings.
Here’s my new profile of OAN. I wrote about Trump’s repeated promotion of the little-watched network, the channel’s history, its conspiratorial nature, and why it’s dangerous for POTUS to be elevating such voices during a public health emergency. https://t.co/Erq6GI9NxM— Oliver Darcy (@oliverdarcy) May 8, 2020
Within this shambles of a thread that reeks of anger and jealousy, Darcy points out that OANN‘s lawyers sent a complaint to the White House because their reporters have to stand when other reporters from so-called bigger networks are allower to sit. Seems like a fair complaint. But that’s not the big news here. Darcy complains that Chanel Rion “even tried setting up her own folding chair in the briefing room.”
On one day in April, OAN personality Chanel Rion even tried setting up her own folding chair in the briefing room. She was told she could not do that, and was seen later carrying it back off White House grounds. https://t.co/Erq6GI9NxM pic.twitter.com/pZN6diGxhm— Oliver Darcy (@oliverdarcy) May 8, 2020
Except, he is wrong. Dead wrong.
Chanel wasn’t told she could not do that. In-fact she was allowed to bring the chair and ultimately ended up leaving it in the West Wing of the White House where it resides currently for Chanel to use whenever she needs.
Aw, @oliverdarcy… getting the story wrong again — and over a CHAIR!— Chanel Rion OAN (@ChanelRion) May 8, 2020
I brought this chair in each day and brought it out each evening. The next day I left it in the basement where it rests now, ready for the next briefing.
Leave my chair in peace, @CNN! It is a good chair. https://t.co/5B2SnXwXRZ
For the record, no one “told” me anything about the legality of this noble chair. Some malicious member of the press corps TAPED it up so it wouldn’t fold open.— Chanel Rion OAN (@ChanelRion) May 8, 2020
For the curious, the chair rests safely in the West Wing and has been for the last three weeks.
Hello from the WH basement and Chanel’s chair. 👋🏻 pic.twitter.com/cHNDGNP8f1— Jenn Pellegrino OAN 🇺🇸 (@JennPellegrino) May 8, 2020
Ya couldn’t of just asked, Darcy? This is seriously embarrassing for you and the fake news network you work for. But then again, this is the level of journalism we’ve all come to expect from mainstream reporters and media outlets like CNN.
Shout-out to OANN’s Chanel Rion for putting Darcy on blast.
