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:
Hey, @washingtonpost, any interest in fixing this nonsense? I noted that Notre Dame is a monument to Western civilization because it is. That has nothing to do with blaming Muslims, and to suggest it does is simply a lie.

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.
Guys, they’re just media watchdogs, not pathetic partisan smear artists funded by Democratic donors https://t.co/9PnDzr4Vh4

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:
So the far-left activist who had to resign from the New Yorker for falsely accusing an ICE agent of being a Nazi was rewarded with:
a.) A teaching role at NYU journalism school
b.) A contributor role at WaPo
c.) Both pic.twitter.com/8FAT4XlrOc

“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.
FAKE NEWS DEBUNKED: ‘Zip Tie Guy’ at Capitol Protest Merely Picked up the Restraints From a Table
It was a mostly-peaceful protest by ANTIFA/BLM standards.
One insidious piece of fake news that circulated widely after the Jan. 6 siege on the U.S. Capitol is that there was a protester with zip ties who was among the individuals who dared to enter the holy grounds on that fateful day.
This was used by dishonest left-wing pundits and lying government officials to claim that the Trump supporters were engaged in an insurrection and a coup on Jan. 6.
Larry Brock, the retired Air Force officer who stormed the Senate chamber with zip ties, intended to "take hostages," a prosecutor said.
"He means to kidnap, restrain, perhaps try, perhaps execute members of the U.S. government." https://t.co/3fxCibQ6WA

A retired Air Force officer who was part of the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol last week carried plastic zip-tie handcuffs because he intended “to take hostages,” prosecutor says in a Texas court. https://t.co/Iy0E7jnsrm

However, it has since come out that there was not any individual who brought zip ties to the U.S. Capitol protest to kidnap federal officials.
After deceiving the public for weeks, prosecutors were forced to admit in court that a man seen with the alleged zip ties had actually taken plastic handcuffs from police. While this may be a crime, it shows that there was no harmful intent from the protesters, most of whom demonstrated peacefully in and around the U.S. Capitol.
Eric Munchel, a U.S. Capitol protester who has been maligned falsely as the ‘Zip Tie Guy,’ reportedly grabbed the handcuffs off from a table. The new court filing explains what occurred.
“At one point, MUNCHEL spots plastic handcuffs on a table inside a hallway in the Capitol. MUNCHEL exclaims, ‘zipties. I need to get me some of them motherf—ers,” and grabs several white plastic handcuffs from on top of a cabinet,” the filing states, adding: “As MUNCHEL and [his mother, Lisa Eisenhart,] are attempting to leave, Eisenhart says words to the effect of, ‘Don’t carry the zip ties, just get ’em out of their hand.'”
It appears that Munchel and his mother, Lisa Eisenhart, were simply trying to prevent the plastic handcuffs from being used to detain patriots at the scene. As the case is heard in court, more details about the case will be heard, and the full truth can be determined.
Big League Politics has attempted to debunk a lot of the spin, which is coming from liberals and conservatives alike, surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol siege:
Less than a week after the infamous U.S. Capitol siege took place, many conservative talking heads – perhaps in an attempt to protect President Donald Trump from the nuclear fall-out – are claiming that ANTIFA terrorists were responsible for the mayhem that ultimately resulted in five people dead…
However, investigative work by Big League Politics shows that there is no real evidence showing that this event was promulgated or set up by ANTIFA and the political establishment.
In fact, there is more evidence showing that this was a spontaneous uprising of angry patriots who have been pushed past the breaking point.
As a reporter who was embedded in the thick of the chaotic scene, I personally witnessed protesters singing “God Bless America” and “I’m Proud to be an American” while they were being tear gassed and flash banged by authorities.
Protesters were risking life and limb to climb up scaffolding to wave the American flag and boldly display their patriotism. Chants included “USA! USA!” and “We the People,” with constitutional iconography being found everywhere…
Does this seem like the optics of an ANTIFA rally, or a pro-American uprising? Big Tech entities are scrambling to censor footage of the rally so that they can control the narrative about what actually took place, so people cannot understand this was a pro-freedom revival in the vein of the Founding Fathers.
Additionally, much of the “evidence” showing that prominent protesters seen inside the Capitol were ANTIFA has already been debunked.
While the Capitol siege may have been seen as destructive and drastic, what is really destructive and drastic is the behavior committed by Congress selling ordinary Americans out for decades. The Capitol demonstrators ought to be punished as harshly as the ANTIFA thugs who attacked Trump’s inauguration in 2017 for their mostly peaceful protest.
