Former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Congressman Keith Ellison stayed firmly in their seats during a two-minute standing ovation for Carryn Owens, widow of slain Navy SEAL Ryan Owens. Senior Chief Owens was killed during an anti-terrorism raid in Yemen. President Trump honored him and Carryn during a joint session of Congress. Fact-checker Snopes.com wrote that the claim was FALSE, saying that an unrelated picture of the two Democrats had been used. IJR’s Benny Johnson proved the lie of this assertion with two tweets. The Democrats stayed seated and did not applaud during the emotional two-minute ovation. Benny says that Snopes has retracted the story and scrubbed him altogether from the piece. He explains what professional journalism really means in 2017. Originally aired on Cam & Co 03/03/17.
