The Immigration Story Was Lie and the Media Doubled Down

The Media has lied about one of the most viral immigration stories.
A viral photo of a crying little girl turned out to be a lie pushed by large media outlets. The little girl was never separated from her mother, her mother is seeking the “american dream” and not fleeing violence, and the father called the mother irresponsible.

If all this is true why did it escape the narrative? Why did TIME publish completely fake news?

The media lied about the immigration story, why?
