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!

Democrats’ Expert on Misinformation is CNN Hack Soledad O’Brien Who Has Pushed Fake News Incessantly for Years

The Democrats are shamelessly Orwellian.

Published

CNN propagandist Soledad O’Brien appeared before Congress on Wednesday as the Democrats’ expert on combating “misinformation.”

During the hearing, she called for her competitors to be censored and for alternative perspectives from the globalist-mandated consensus to be crushed.

“When news organizations make decisions based on ratings rather than responsible reporting, disinformation flourishes in dangerous ways,” O’Brien said while appearing before Congress.

“Cover the fact that lies and propaganda are being disseminated, but do not book people to lie on your show, because it elevates them and presents a lie as another side. Stop posing every story as having two sides, some stories, in fact, have many many sides, and are more complicated. And also, lies don’t have a side,’ she added, describing her vision for how news should be covered.

However, if O’Brien’s advice were taken by newsrooms, she would never be allowed on anymore due to her record of spreading reckless conspiracy theories about Trump being a Russian asset and other nonsense.

News aggregator @amuse posted some of O’Brien’s greatest hits on the fake news leader over the past few years:

Big League Politics has reported on other times in which O’Brien humiliated herself by posting falsehoods:

As usual, members of our esteemed media were caught lying on Wednesday, this time about the motivations for President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Iraq to visit troops.

Much ado was made when Trump did not visit Iraq on Christmas Day. NBC said that he was the first president not to visit the troops as Christmastime, only to correct themselves after Trump left for Iraq late Tuesday night. This led leftists conclude that the media had “shamed” Trump into visiting our fine soldiers.

“Shaming him seems to work,” CNN’s Soledad O’Brien said in reply to a Tweet by Brit Hume.

Hume had noted that by the time left-wing actress had blasted Trump for not visiting the troops, he had already visited them. Hume blasted O’Brien for her apparent lack of understanding of the concept of time.

“Yes Ma’am,” he said. “Trump read this Tweet when it was posted and time-traveled himself back to yesterday and flew to Iraq. Genius take.”

… What was wrong was the assumption that Trump had to be “shamed” to visiting the war zone. Embarrassingly, these leftists were proved wrong by leftist POLITICO.

“According to a White House official, the Trump administration had been planning the trip for more than six weeks,” said a Wednesday POLITICO piece.

Of course, the piece chided Trump for not being able to keep his trip a secret, citing two of Trump’s remarks about a potential trip to a war zone. 

The Democrats are shameless in pushing their Orwellian agenda. They are at war with objective reality and will stoop to unfathomable depths to achieve absolute power.
