Fox News commentator, author and former NRATV host Dan Bongino has accused Daily Beast’s Lachlan Markay of running a fake news story about his departure from the online television network.
“This story is absolutely untrue and the “reporter” knows it. He texted me on Friday, after hearing I DECLINED A GENEROUS RENEWAL OFFER, this ‘Heard you didn’t renew with NRATV.’ Yet, he lied & wrote I was ‘dropped’ and liberal imbeciles immediately ran with it. This is fake news,” Bongino said, quoting a Tweet from Markay in which Markay linked to his story.
He followed up with a Tweet showing text messages from Markay inquiring about the alleged “cancellation.” Bongino did not respond to Markay’s texts.
The screenshots suggest that Markay was aware of the renewal offer that Bongino referenced, but Markay cited two anonymous sources in his story claiming that Bongino’s show was cancelled.
Bongino demanded a retraction and promised a story on his site, which presumably will counter Markay’s claim.
Asawin Suebsaeng, who contributed to Markay’s report, took a shot at Bongino, too.
“The Daily Beast had never heard he declined a generous offer of any kind, so Dan is (shocking!) splitting hairs here and calling a completely accurate story (Read. It.) ‘fake news’ because why not?” he said.

Bongino fired back.
“Fake news ‘reporter’ writes I was ‘dropped’ after his fake news co-author texts me saying he heard ‘I DIDN’T RENEW,’ and now he’s desperately trying to unwind his bullshit. These idiots dunk on themselves,” he said.
Markay is notorious for playing fast and loose with the truth. Earlier this year, he smeared Students for Trump, claiming that the Federal Election Commission (FEC) was desperately trying to figure out why the organization had not provided information about its “financial backers.” In reality, the group had no financial backers or revenue stream. It was briefly a registered PAC before canceling its status as such.
Last month, Markey recycled a Big League Politics story from July and slapped an “exclusive” tag on it. He did not remove the tag once BLP alerted him to the fact that he was four months behind on the “news.”
Markay did not immediately respond to a comment request about the Bongino story.
Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’
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.”
Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 p.m. curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protesters and heavily armed police https://t.co/lvEd2XalpJ pic.twitter.com/L8GrPNrwCg

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.
