New York Times Retracts Story Claiming Capitol Officer Brian Sicknick Was Killed in Riot

This is gravely irresponsible fake news.

The New York Times retracted a story claiming Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died as a a result of being struck by a fire extinguisher during the January 6th Capitol riot on Sunday.

Law enforcement officials initially said Mr. Sicknick was struck with a fire extinguisher, but weeks later, police sources and investigators were at odds over whether he was hit. Medical experts have said he did not die of blunt force trauma, according to one law enforcement official.

The New York Times had originally claimed Sicknick suffered brain injuries. Evidence has since emerged revealing that Sicknick collapsed at a USCP facility following the riot’s conclusion, having texted his brother that he was alright after the event. FBI investigators are reportedly struggling to build a homicide case in Sicknick’s death, with charges yet to be filed more than a month after the event.

A formal autopsy report is yet to be released in regards to Sicknick’s death, a highly unusual situation, especially with the event colored with controversy. The New York Times spread the idea that the New Jersey Air National Guard veteran and longtime Capitol officer died as a result of injuries inflicted by a rioter. This now appears highly unlikely.

It’s difficult to speculate as to how Sicknick died, but in the absence of a homicide, it appears probable he died as a result of a medical condition following the event.

Marc Santora, Megan Specia and Mike Baker were listed as the authors of the report indicating Sicknick had been murdered.

The New York Times at the time had claimed that its reporter was made aware of the Sicknick’s cause of death by a “source familiar with the Capitol police.” It appears likely that the NYT’s source had no direct line of communication with the agency, and was instead a a Democrat member of Congress or staffer, or even a Washington DC district official.

This kind of fake news is as egregious as it gets. The New York Times falsely cited a bogus source who indicated a homicide had happened when they had no grounds to make such a conclusion. As a result, Officer Sicknick’s family was potentially misled as to the nature of his death. Unfortunately, with the events of the raucous protest and riot on January 6th fading into the rearview mirror, the New York Times will once again escape scrutiny from the mainstream media for its lies.

Democrats’ Expert on Misinformation is CNN Hack Soledad O’Brien Who Has Pushed Fake News Incessantly for Years

The Democrats are shamelessly Orwellian.

CNN propagandist Soledad O’Brien appeared before Congress on Wednesday as the Democrats’ expert on combating “misinformation.”

During the hearing, she called for her competitors to be censored and for alternative perspectives from the globalist-mandated consensus to be crushed.

“When news organizations make decisions based on ratings rather than responsible reporting, disinformation flourishes in dangerous ways,” O’Brien said while appearing before Congress.

“Cover the fact that lies and propaganda are being disseminated, but do not book people to lie on your show, because it elevates them and presents a lie as another side. Stop posing every story as having two sides, some stories, in fact, have many many sides, and are more complicated. And also, lies don’t have a side,’ she added, describing her vision for how news should be covered.

However, if O’Brien’s advice were taken by newsrooms, she would never be allowed on anymore due to her record of spreading reckless conspiracy theories about Trump being a Russian asset and other nonsense.

News aggregator @amuse posted some of O’Brien’s greatest hits on the fake news leader over the past few years:

Big League Politics has reported on other times in which O’Brien humiliated herself by posting falsehoods:

As usual, members of our esteemed media were caught lying on Wednesday, this time about the motivations for President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Iraq to visit troops.

Much ado was made when Trump did not visit Iraq on Christmas Day. NBC said that he was the first president not to visit the troops as Christmastime, only to correct themselves after Trump left for Iraq late Tuesday night. This led leftists conclude that the media had “shamed” Trump into visiting our fine soldiers.

“Shaming him seems to work,” CNN’s Soledad O’Brien said in reply to a Tweet by Brit Hume.

Hume had noted that by the time left-wing actress had blasted Trump for not visiting the troops, he had already visited them. Hume blasted O’Brien for her apparent lack of understanding of the concept of time.

“Yes Ma’am,” he said. “Trump read this Tweet when it was posted and time-traveled himself back to yesterday and flew to Iraq. Genius take.”

… What was wrong was the assumption that Trump had to be “shamed” to visiting the war zone. Embarrassingly, these leftists were proved wrong by leftist POLITICO.

“According to a White House official, the Trump administration had been planning the trip for more than six weeks,” said a Wednesday POLITICO piece.

Of course, the piece chided Trump for not being able to keep his trip a secret, citing two of Trump’s remarks about a potential trip to a war zone. 

The Democrats are shameless in pushing their Orwellian agenda. They are at war with objective reality and will stoop to unfathomable depths to achieve absolute power.
