Cameron Harris committed a huge ethical violation by fabricating a story that the 2016 election was rigged. I feel that the worst part about it was that he felt a sort of pride that people believed him for quite awhile. He skillfully crafted a fake story and even included photographs to make it seem real. People like this one are one of the reasons journalists are getting a bad reputation.
