    Sean Hannity of Fox News appears at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Md. in March 2016.

    Sean Hannity tried to teach NBC News a lesson Thursday morning, but something didn’t exactly go according to his plan.

    In a tweet posted at 11:29 a.m. on Thursday, the conservative TV host wrote, “Hey fake news @CNNand conspiracy TV @NBCNews read and learn.”

    The link he attached?

    Well, you’d assume it would be reading material for the “fake news” CNN and “conspiracy TV” NBC, right?

    For whatever reason, the reading material turned out to be an NBC News article about the Uranium One deal.

    People were confused, including POLITICO’s Jake Sherman, who responded that NBC broke the story Hannity was speaking about.

    Hannity didn’t seem to ever correct himself — or delete the tweet — but he did post a photo of a television with MSNBC on, showing an article from The Hill on the same topic.

    Was this the intended reading material?

    He then tweeted again asking everyone in the “fake news media” to “pay close attention and try to keep up!”
