CBS News ran a story Thursday claiming that Washington, D.C firefighters recruits “might” be making a white power gesture- by making the famous ‘OK’ gesture in a class photo.
The story, first “reported” on by a Washington CBS affiliate, makes sensational and borderline defamatory claims about the recruit firefighters.
The CBS reporters dug up an old class photo of the firefighters where one of them was making the innocuous hand symbol. They then proceeded to launch a widely speculative witch hunt against them, reporting the “controversy” to the District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services.
The municipal agency has now launched an investigation into the recruit firefighters for the fake controversy, raising a specter of a possibility that CBS could ruin careers and lives with their fearmongering and yellow reporting.
The ‘OK’ hand symbol, made by pointing up one’s latter three fingers and holding their thumb and index finger together, has been used by individuals across broad swathes of American society for decades, including notorious liberals such as Barack Obama and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
A similar controversy was promptly shut down in December, when verified liberals tried to claim that West Point cadets were white supremacists for playing the “circle game” at an Army-Navy game. An investigation into the cadets vindicated them from the slanderous claims of elite media liberals.
Mainstream media operatives love nothing more than picking on easy targets with bogus, sensational accusations, using the playbook from infamous hate hoaxes such as the Covington Catholic incident with regularity. But the shutdown of the recent West Point hoax demonstrates the elite institutions the liberal media relies on for credibility may be tiring of their lies, leaving fake news purveyors such as CBS completely powerless in their endless quest to gin up fake controversies targeting American patriots.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins
Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.
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.
