Daily Beast’s Lachlan Markay Recycles Four-Month-Old BLP Story, Calls it ‘Exclusive’

Published

on

Tuesday evening, Lachlan Markay of leftwing rag The Daily Beast published an “exclusive” story on U.S. Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith that Big League Politics covered months ago.

“EXCLUSIVE: Former Facebook prez and Napster founder Sean Parker bankrolled the super PAC of race-baiting Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith,” said Daily Beast editor-in-chief Noah Schachtman on Twitter, linking to the story.

The story was branded as “exclusive” on the site, too.

As Big League Politics reported way back on July 14 (and several times after that):

An old name in Silicon Valley circles and Democrat politics has become a driving force for the election of a recently-appointed Republican U.S. Senator from Mississippi.

Sean Parker, billionaire founder of Napster, the online file sharing service, and early investor in Facebook, has donated $250,000 to the Victory Fund PAC, aimed at getting Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) elected, according to Pro Publica.

Parker was a large Hillary Clinton donor, too. According to the New York Timeshe “gave nearly $300,000 to a joint fund-raising committee for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and dozens of state Democratic parties.”

The substance of Daily Beast’s article was the same as BLP’s. The creative geniuses there even used the exact same thumbnail photo.

But Markay did leave out a few important facts.

He did not mention that Hyde-Smith was a registered Democrat until 2011 when she changed parties to run for statewide office. Given his proclivity for partisan hackery, that omission was likely purposeful. He also left out the fact that Hyde-Smith voted in the 2008 Democratic primary, meaning that she either cast a vote for twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton, successful presidential candidate but disastrous president Barack H. Obama, or all-around scumbag Jon Edwards. Hyde-Smith is hardly a GOP hardliner. That information has been reported at length on this site – and for quite some time now.

Further, campaign finance records are public information, making it a serious stretch for Daily Beast to call this story “exclusive.” It is “exclusive” inasmuch as the entire internet-using world could garner the information in Markay’s article with a simple  Google search, and of course that BLP reported it four months ago.

Markay, who often calls BLP a conspiracy site, apparently has no problem ripping of our work. In cowardly fashion, he did not respond to a comment request for this story.

Apparently, this is the type of work for which one needs a journalism degree. Quick, someone get that man a Pulitzer!

Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’

Published

on

After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.

“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.

Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.

Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:

On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.

Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.

Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.

The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.

Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…

Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
