Journo Who Falsely Called ICE Agent a Nazi Now Works for WaPo Smearing Conservatives

Talia Lavin, the disgraced former fact checker for the New Yorker who doxed an ICE agent falsely for being a Nazi, has had her career rehabilitated by the fake news industry. The Washington Post scooped her up despite (or maybe due to) being a known liar to malign conservatives for Jeff Bezos’ lobbying rag.

Lavin was hard at work following the burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral, deriding any chatter of what caused the Paris blaze as far-right conspiracy theories. She singled out ‘Never Trumper‘ Ben Shapiro with a diatribe of nonsensical gibberish.

“Ben Shapiro called Notre Dame a ‘monument to Western civilization’ and ‘Judeo-Christian heritage.’ Given the already-raging rumors about potential Muslim involvement, these tweets evoked the specter of a war between Islam and the West that is already part of numerous far-right narratives; it was also a central thread in the manifesto of Brenton Tarrant, the alleged Christchurch, New Zealand, shooter,” Lavin wrote.

Shapiro, who always goes out of his way to sanitize his commentary for mainstream media consumption, felt that this attack was out-of-bounds and took to his Twitter account to whip up some outrage over his hurt feelings:

Shapiro then politely lobbied his fake news partners to change the story on his behalf:

The ensuing fallout sparked a surreal exchange between Shapiro and the Soros-funded targeted harassment agency Media Matters where the leftist propaganda entity did their credibility no favors.

Liberals have certainly seen better days when they are getting schooled by little Ben Shapiro. Relying on proven hacks like Lavin to write the fake news only exposes their illicit agenda further.

Making matters even worse, Far Left Watch exposed that Lavin is not just on the WaPo payroll, but she is also receiving a taxpayer-funded salary at New York University to mold young minds as well:

“It is past time that those who stoke inflammatory rhetoric, knowing its potential to catalyze racist violence, were made to stop playing with fire — before it’s too late to control the inferno,” Lavin wrote in the final line of her article.

Lavin would be wise to take her own advice, although she would probably not receive as much employment in her industry if she were scrupulous. The fake news appears to hire disreputable vermin exclusively to wage war against basic American values.
