NPR, a taxpayer-funded far-left radio organization, ran a demonstrably false news story about France’s Minister of European Affairs which it has not yet retracted despite the story having been proved to be entirely false.
NPR’s “Morning Edition” host Rachel Martin said:
“After yet another narrow and indecisive vote in the British Parliament last week, [Nathalie] Loiseau decided to name her cat Brexit. She said, quote, “he wakes me up every morning meowing to death because he wants to go out. And then when I open the door, he stays put undecided and glares at me when I put him out.” [emphasis added]
That story, it turns out, was completely fabricated, as noted by Raheem Kassam on Twitter. Loiseau doesn’t even have a cat.
“It was a joke, obviously,” Loiseau said Sunday afternoon. “I don’t have a cat.”
The joke originated on her Facebook page – where our very serious reporters are getting their very serious information. Several outlets reported the news. None, apparently, bothered to verify whether the cat even existed.
“The fake news media strikes again. With no apologies nor corrections. The French minister in question didn’t name her cat Brexit. She doesn’t even have a cat,” Kassam said.
NPR did not immediately return a comment request.
This is yet another folly, typical of a day in the life of the fake news media, which has far more important things to worry about than pesky facts, like whether President Donald J. Trump cheats at golf, or whether it can destroy a duly elected American president by peddling a conspiracy theory about Russian “collusion” for two full years, and then refuse to apologize for its lies.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins
Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.
Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.
Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.
Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.
Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.
It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.
Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
