Breitbart News -- the far-right online publication once led by Steve Bannon -- hilariously identified a Daily Show producer as the host of "Hardball" on MSNBC.
"Hardball" -- which was cancelled in February -- was named after a 1988 book by Chris Matthews, the host of the show.
But in a post complaining about the media holding Republicans to account for going along with Donald Trump's conspiracy theories about the 2020 election, Breitbart writer Joshua Klein mistakenly referred to "Daily Show" producer Matt Negrin as the host of the canceled show.

Negrin mocked the "dumb white supremacist propaganda" on Twitter.
