Daily Beast Unrepentant After Spreading RussiaGate Conspiracy Hoax for Two Years

The fake news outlet was tight-lipped about its reckless coverage of the Russiagate hoax.

The Daily Beast, one of the Democratic Party’s loss leaders in media, has a nasty habit of labeling everyone who dares question The Daily Beast’s Media Matters-approved talking points as “conspiracy theorists.”

Monday, the proverbial shoe was on the other foot after Attorney General William P. Barr found no evidence of wrongdoing by President Donald J. Trump’s campaign during the 2016 election. The site lent credence to the bogus Russian collusion conspiracy theory for the past two years.

Big League Politics reached out to some of The Daily Beast’s squirrelly j-school dorks who were responsible for cranking out bylines suggesting that POTUS was an agent of a hostile foreign power to see if they felt remorseful, embarrassed, or apologetic for their coverage of RussiaGate hoax.

Specifically, we contacted reporters (that term is used loosely in this context) Spencer Ackerman, Betsy Woodruff, Michael Tomasky, Sam Brodey, and Asawin Suebsaeng, some of the site’s most prolific Russian collusion conspiracy theorists.

Not one of these hoaxers who mislead the American public and sent rabid leftists into a frenzy with their irresponsible Trump/Russia coverage had any comment about their work over the past two years. Neither did the site’s editor-in-chief, Noah Shachtman, who presumably green lit the collusion conspiracy theory stories.

We know they received our inquiries, though. A white knight who is presumably connected to some of the reporters at Daily Beast took exception to our email inquiries, and Tweeted at me to express his malcontent, calling them “creepy.”

Jonathan Franks is an unremarkable blue checkmark liberal who describes himself as an advisor to low I.Q. Trump-hater Montel Williams. Williams seems fairly capable of embarrassing himself publicly without the help a team, but the confirmation that The Daily Beast staffers received BLP’s emails was certainly helpful!

If the conspiracy peddlers at The Daily Beast do not want to apologize today, that’s fine. But there will be a reckoning for the mainstream press over their despicable coverage of Trump’s non-existent Russian “collusion.”

The media will not simply wipe the egg off its face and move on, as though they weren’t complicit in perpetuating the most damaging hoax in American political history.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins

Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.

Published

on

Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.

Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.

Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.

Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.

It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.

Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
