Burning Bibles in Portland?

So last night the right-wing media exploded after protestors in Portland set an American flag on fire, and then threw pieces of paper on the fire.

Russian RT media video showed the lighting of the flag, and reported that Bibles were being burned in the fire. Yes, RUSSIAN RT.

Then, a half-hour later, “Babylon Bee” wrote that protestors were burning bibles.

Within another half-hour, Brietbart, and a half-dozen other right-wing media outlets stated the Black Lives Matter protestors were burning American Flags and Bibles.

A local TV station picked up and said Bibles were burned, https://www.koin.com/news/protests/night-64-portland-firefighters-for-blm-vigils-and-community-healing/
And then “The Blaze”, the “New York Post”, and a dozen other right leaning news sources all started reporting bible burning and flag burning. (It was just two Americans flags, as far as I can tell, by a small group, several hours after a fire was set by the large group).

How the hell do you counter incendiary (no pun intended) false information like burning Bibles?

And democratic leaders at all levels should denounce the burning of an American flag by the Portland protestors. That isn’t called for.
