이 영상은 마이애미 국제공항에서 촬영된 것도, 허리케인 어마를 찍은 것도 아니었다.
소셜미디어 유저들은 이 사진이 한참 전, 멕시코시티의 공항에서 촬영된 것 같다고 주장했다. 이에 마이애미 국제공항 역시 공식 트위터 계정을 통해 스카비노가 공유한 영상 속 공항은 마이애미 국제공항이 아니라고 밝혔다.
This video is not from Miami International Airport.— Miami Int'l Airport (@iflymia) September 10, 2017
Thank you. It was among 100s of videos/pics I am receiving re: Irma from public. In trying to notify all, I shared - have deleted. Be safe!— Dan Scavino Jr. (@Scavino45) September 10, 2017
마이애미 국제공항 측은 스카비노에게 해당 트윗을 삭제해줘서 고맙다고 했지만, 대중은 그리 만만한 상대가 아니었다. 트위터리안들은 '가짜 뉴스'를 비난하던 그가 직접 '가짜 뉴스'를 퍼뜨렸다며 조롱을 하고 나섰다.
You would hope that the "White House Director of Social Media" would know better about authenticating videos before sharing them with POTUS pic.twitter.com/TTourdnZuO— Jesse Rodriguez (@JesseRodriguez) September 10, 2017
You have a duty to 'verify' before sharing. Literally your job. Your improperly punctuated Tweet skips over that. Not okay.— CindyWheeler (@cincity631) September 11, 2017
Yeah, who would want to verify information was accurate before passing it on to the President?— John Maddening (@johnmaddening) September 10, 2017
Maybe research *before* sharing?— Kevin Binswanger (@Anusien) September 10, 2017
You're not very professional. Why do you have to "share" with POTUS and VP on social media anyway? Aren't they briefed on events?— Amazed in Brooklyn (@Brooklynwatch) September 10, 2017
you didn't think to do proper due diligence before sharing a video during a disaster??— Megan R. Smith (@MeganRSmith83) September 10, 2017
your job isn't to effing crowdsource. You have legitimate sources of info ffs. Fire yourself.— Melissa Byrne (@mcbyrne) September 10, 2017

Fake news eh? Watch CNN or Weather Channel for real news— Craig (@CraigNJ66) September 10, 2017
Fake news, Dan! Might want to vet your sources next time.— Ruby (@motherofshoes) September 10, 2017
Dan! Dan! Dan! Mar-a-Lago's under water! Please share!! pic.twitter.com/K647TgoC9A— SeriouslyUS? (@USseriously) September 10, 2017
