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.

What?! Bloomberg Op-Ed Calls for China to Reopen Infamous Wet Markets

Eat the bat, bigot.

Published

on

In what could only be called the most bizarre of takes, Bloomberg’s David Fickling is lauding China for reopening the infamous wet markets from which the coronavirus is thought to have originated from.

The piece, titled ‘China is Reopening its Wet Markets. That’s Good,’ argues that the wet markets offer ‘clean, fresh produce’ and a valid alternative to traditional grocery and food stores.

Political figures from across the world have been calling for China to finally meaningfully ban the markets. A wet food market in Wuhan is suspected as the place of origin for the Chinese coronavirus. Many scientists believe that a virus common to bats was passed to a pangolin(an anteater-like creature) and adapted to a form that made it transmissible to humans.

Fickling argues that the exotic wildlife trade represents only a small share of commerce at the infamous wet markets, where live animals from vastly differing categories of the animal kingdom are kept in close proximity and slaughtered for human consumption.

Fickling makes an utterly reaching claim that China’s wet food markets are concisely analogous to western farmer’s markets. When have you ever seen animals like bats or pangolins for sale- let alone offered live- at your local farmer’s market?

He claims that only a “small minority” of wet food markets offer exotic animals such as bats as pangolins. But it appears that it only took a single interaction between the two animals for an extant virus to adapt to a new form that made it not only transmissible to humans, but poised to create the greatest international health pandemic since the 1918 Spanish Flu.

The opinion piece largely appears to be a reactionary elitist dismissal of the populist demands for China to eliminate a scientifically veritably dangerous biological threat to mankind. We can’t merely take the risk that these markets are going to clean up their act, considering that the next epidemic to emerge from the dangerous markets could prove to be even more lethal than the Wuhan coronavirus.

OPINION: For the Sake of Mankind, End China’s Wet Food Markets. End Them Now.
