Talk about “Fake News.” CBS News has copped to using frightening footage of overwhelmed hospitals in Italy, as examples of the dead and dying in New York City!

The once respected network has admitted that the alarming footage of an overflowing ward used during a report on how the coronavirus crisis is impacting hospitals in the Big Apple was actually shot in Italy.

CBS’ breakfast show, “This Morning,” used the footage of a packed ward last Wednesday just after saying the pandemic’s epicenter was “found right here” in New York.

During the broadcast in question, the producers aired a short clip of Dr. Deborah Birx, coordinator of the White House coronavirus response team, expressing her concern about the outbreak in New York City and whether there would be enough medical supplies.

“That is because more than half of the nation’s new coronavirus cases are being found right here,” CBS News reported after Dr. Birx’s clip. “Crowded subway cars may have accelerated the spread. New York’s governor says FEMA gave the state 400 ventilators.”

The segment then cut to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo criticizing FEMA for an apparent lack of ventilators before showing the dire footage of an Italian hospital.

The exact same footage had been aired earlier by Sky News — which correctly identified it as one of Europe’s “most hard-hit” hospitals located in Bergamo, Lombardy, Italy.

CBS News spokesperson backpedaled, saying in response all of the criticism in received, “It was an editing mistake. We took immediate steps to remove it from all platforms and shows.”
