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.

CRINGE: CNN State Media Opines of “Joe Biden’s Arms Embracing America”
CNN daytime host David Chalian spoke of Joe Biden in worshipful terms in a Tuesday segment, claiming that a display of lights intended to memorialize COVID casualties represented the 78-year old President-elect embracing the United States in his arms.
Chalian claimed that President Trump was disgraced, ignoring the fact that polls with a track record of accuracy in the 2020 election reveal the outgoing President’s approval rating is over 50%.
“Those lights that are just shooting out from the Lincoln Memorial… It’s almost like extensions of Joe Biden’s arms embracing America. It’s a moment where the new President came to town and convened the country in this moment of remembrance, outstretching his arms.”
Is this the incoming President, or Chalian’s father? North Korean state propaganda would be jealous.
Joe Biden has opted for the light display in the absence of an inauguration crowd, with the incoming President eschewing a traditional inauguration on account of coronavirus concerns. It’s expected that Biden will speak of ‘unity’ in his Wednesday address, but such a goal is more easily attained through action than through words.
CNN is poised to take on the role of a state propaganda outlet, carrying water for the neoliberal establishment and the globalist elite. Figures within the mainstream media organization expect its ratings and audience to crumble and decline, no longer possessing a captivated liberal audience eager for content targeting President Trump with predictable hitpieces.
