D.C. ‘Reporters’ Were Wrong (Again) About the ‘We Build the Wall’ Project

Will Sommer of The Daily Beast, a site known as a landing ground for left wing conspiracy theories, implied that the project was a scam. He was wrong.

On Monday, We Build the Wall, a nonprofit that raised money via crowdfund to build a border wall on private land, released a video showing at least a half mile of wall it built in New Mexico with the money it raised, proving the left wing, fake news media detractors wrong.

“Shocker! The GoFundMe Campaign to Build the Wall Is a Bust,” was the headline of a May 10 piece by Will Sommer in The Daily Beast.

Sommer’s piece implied that the entire project, led by triple amputee veteran Brian Kolfage, was a scam designed to bilk money from unsuspecting donors.

“More than a week into May, though, We Build the Wall hasn’t shown any proof that any ground has been broken, and donors say they weren’t invited to any promised groundbreaking ceremony,” Sommer’s piece said.

Sommer quoted one donor with whom he actually spoke, but the rest of his piece relied on a few Twitter and Facebook messages to justify his claim that donors were frustrated with a lack of progress an transparency. The project has hundreds of thousands of donors.

“Donors to the group have begun taking out their frustrations on the organization’s Facebook page, which often hypes the threat of immigrants crossing the border illegally,” Sommer wrote.

He provided two examples of donors asking about the project on Facebook.

Big League Politics reached out to Sommer for comment, but he did not immediately respond.

The extent to which the group will be able to secure the border remains unknown, but it appears that it is attempting to make good on its promises, despite what the armchair “reporters” in Washington, D.C. believe.

FAKE NEWS: Media Publishes Disgustingly Mischaracterized Articles on the Death of Kristi Noem’s Grandmother to Attack Her COVID-19 Approach

The fake news media will stoop to any low to attack conservatives.

On Tuesday the Daily Beast published a horrifically misleading story about the death of South Dakota governor Kristi Noem’s grandmother, which was later picked up by sites like Business Insider and MSN.

Daily Beast “Special Correspondent” Michael Daly wrote in a piece titled “Anti-Mask Guv’s Grandmother Died in Nursing Home Ravaged by COVID” that despite the death of Governor Noem’s grandmother, 98-year-old Aldys Arnold, Noem “continues to downplay the virus, refuse a mask mandate, and ignore the terrible price her state is paying.”

Keep in mind that the primary objective here is not to report Arnold’s death, but to lambast Noem’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and in a sense blame her for her death.

That is despicable enough in itself, but what makes it worse is that Noem’s grandmother likely didn’t even die from COVID. Daly tells us in the second paragraph of his story that, according to Noem’s office, Arnold tested negative for the virus and that no cause of death was given.

12 out of the 13 deaths at that nursing home between November 14 and November 28 were “COVID-related”—the one exception being Aldys Arnold.

To add fuel to the fire, Business Insider writer Kelly McLaughlin ran her story with the exact same characterization as The Daily Beast’s, with a duplicate version of her article also appearing in MSN.

This is the same fake news media that reluctantly covered—or outright ignored—reports of Democratic governors stuffing COVID patients into nursing homes back in the spring. When we say that the fake news media is the enemy of the people, we wholeheartedly mean it.
