No, Sarah Sanders didn’t steal a Thanksgiving pie photo from PBS

[Ed. – Sorry, haters]

The amateur sleuths of Twitter thought that they had uncovered a Thanksgiving conspiracy today, claiming that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stole a photo of a pie from PBS and posted it as her own. Did Sanders lie about her pie? No. And we’ll show you why.

The origin of this bizarre conspiracy theory seems to have started with random Twitter users before being taken up by journalist and author Victoria Namkung who posted a link to what she claimed was the original photo. Namkung seemed to believe that the “PBS” in the domain name of the photo she posted meant that Sanders had stolen the photo from the public broadcaster.

But the thing is, pbs.twimg.com is just a subdomain that Twitter uses to host photos. It has absolutely nothing to do with the Public Broadcasting Service. The best evidence that Sanders is the original creator of the photo? If you do a reverse image search, it’s clear that Sanders was the first person to post that image to the internet.
