Phoenix Airport Shuts Down MSNBC Analyst’s Story of ‘Anti-AOC Graffiti’

Not quite a hate crime hoax, but in the ballpark.

Published

Tuesday, MSNBC’s David Corn took to Twitter to complain about “anti-AOC graffiti” which he apparently stumbled across in the bathroom of the Phoenix airport.

‘I just spotted obscene anti- graffiti in a bathroom stall in the Phoenix airport. Yes, really. (Not going to post a photo of it.),” he said.

Of course, this was immediately suspicion, given his insistence on not posting the photo. But the Phoenix airport responded Wednesday, claiming that they had checked bathrooms in his terminal and found no evidence of such distasteful imagery.

“Thanks for the follow-up. Our Facilities team checked the restrooms in the area last night, and although they didn’t find anything, those restrooms are checked and cleaned several times a day,” the airport’s Twitter account said.

It is possible that the alleged graffiti was cleaned before the staff was able to look into Corn’s claims. However, Corn could end the debate by simply posting a photo of what he allegedly saw.

In his defense, he did post a photo of a toilet seat at the airport and the alleged graffiti – but he blacked out the image of the graffiti itself.

“I didn’t want to post a pic of the graffiti because that would be spreading the work of a deplorable. But here’s a pic showing where it occurred with the message blacked out. No doubt, disbelieving conservatives will still call this a Deep State plot. Oh well,” he said.

Despite the bizarre nature of the claim, in the age of hate crime hoaxes, every such claim by peddlers of hate in the mainstream press must be scrutinized. This one seems a bit shady.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins

Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.

Published

on

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.
