Nikki Haley Lets Media Off Hook After Smollett Hoax

The media is just as culpable in the Smollett case as Smollett himself.

The former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations took to Twitter to defend the lying mainstream media after they ran with the Jussie Smollett hoax.

“Thoughts on Jussie Smollett case: He must be held accountable in the strictest way. He must repay resources used to investigate and serve time for the division he caused. The media should be the most outraged. He played all of them for fools. He knew they would cover it,” Nikki Haley Tweeted Tuesday.

Smollett did not “play them for fools.” The media are fools. The onus for running with unconfirmed allegations and publishing his bogus story is on them. The story made little sense from the beginning, but our non-critical news media were desperate to attack Trump supporters.

Two white supremacists targeted and attacked Smollett at 2 a.m. in Chicago yelling “This is MAGA country?” One must be completely out of touch with reality (or have a political agenda) to not question that claim.

And should the media be the most outraged? Or should it be the decent, ordinary Trump-supporting Americans who were once again falsely accused of bigotry?

The first cycle of news after the Smollett hoax blamed “homophobic, racist, Trump supporters”  for the “attack” based on nothing more that what Smollett told police. That is not journalism. That is parroting the message of an obviously-deranged celebrity.

Haley can let the media off the hook for their role in this, but they will still hate her – and every other Republican – by virtue of the political party she supports. This is the simple fact that Conservative Inc., including Haley, fails to understand. Corporate conservatives always think they are one compromise away from media redemption.

That will never be the case.

The media is just as culpable in the Smollett case as Smollett himself.

Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War

The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.

Published

on

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.

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.

These are some very dishonest people, folks.
