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.

Jim Acosta Calls Conservative Media a “Disinformation-Industrial Complex” and “Potential Existential Threat”

Project much, Jim?

Published

on

CNN’s Jim Acosta appeared on Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning show “Reliable Sources” to call conservative media a “potential existential threat” that could “cause more suffering.”

Referring to the on-screen graph that shows a significant drop in engagement with Trump-related articles, Stelter asked Acosta if he thought this “quiet period” was temporary. Acosta replied as follows:

I think it is temporary. I do think what this country faces right now […] I describe it as the disinformation-industrial complex, and that is Trump and his people, conservative outlets like Fox News, and then conservative websites and organizations aligned with the president, and conservative platforms. These three pillars of this disinformation-industrial complex essentially helped put Trump in power, kept him in power, sustained his grip on the Republican Party, and it remains a threat to our democracy. It is the reason why there were hundreds of Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6. And until that poison, that toxin, is drained from the national political discourse in this country, Brian, I do think that these forces represent a potential existential threat to this country and have the potential to come back and cause more suffering in the days to come.”

Acosta does not seem to realize, however, that the popularity and influence of right-wing outlets like Big League Politics are direct consequences of “journalists” like him and networks like CNN. They’re the original traffickers in disinformation and in fanning the flames of fearmongering. Alternative conservative media would not have taken off if the mainstream media weren’t so unbearably leftist.
