Tuesday afternoon, NBC reported “breaking news” – the name of the accuser of Justin Fairfax, Democratic Lieutenant Governor of Virginia – a full two days after Big League Politics actually broke the story.
“NBC News is now naming the woman who accuses Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault — a claim he categorically denies. Vanessa Tyson, an associate professor of politics at Scripps College, has provided permission to identify her, per source close to her legal team,” NBC News’ White House Correspondent Geoff Bennett said on Twitter.

Not only was the story broken two days ago, but a good deal of drama has unfolded since. At 3 a.m Monday morning, Fairfax denied the allegation in a press release, and threatened to sue BLP. Washington Post, which Fairfax said had learned of the allegations a year ago, disputed some of the facts of Fairfax’s press release. Fairfax then denied the sexual assault allegations, saying that he did have sex with Tyson, but it was consensual, and floated wild conspiracy theories about Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, also a Democrat, possibly having leaked allegations.
Not to mention, Vanessa Tyson had already confirmed that she had previously given permission to share her story.
While all of this was happening, NBC was nowhere to be found.
Congrats on the big scoop, guys!

Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
