In an attempt to smear a wildly a successful campaign that has tens of thousands of people fleeing from the Democrat party, an Observer reporter enlisted in the fight to smear Brandon Straka and his #WalkAway project.
“This reporter at the Observer – Davis Richardson – wrote a hit piece on me, saying that my ban was lifted and I was lying about it,” Straka, the founder of #WalkAway, told Big League Politics.
Richardson gleefully did his duty as a mainstream press
PR Agent reporter, defending Facebook, who apparently called Straka’s ban a “mistake.”
“Later [Wednesday] evening, however, Observer received an email from a Facebook representative contradicting Straka’s narrative of Internet censorship: Although his account was temporarily blocked from posting on Wednesday, the restriction was a mistake and his page had already been restored that afternoon. Straka also received an apology from the company,” Richardson wrote.
But according to Straka, Facebook never contacted him to tell him that his ban was lifted, and has yet to reach out to him to relay that message. He has not received any form of communication – let alone an apology – from the tech giant other than the generic Wednesday message that he was banned from posting.
“Why is Facebook reaching out to a reporter, and not me?” Straka asked incredulously.
Further, Richardson accused Straka of exaggerating his ban for political gain.
“Still, as of Thursday, well after his account had been reinstated, Straka was milking the Facebook ‘ban’ narrative over Twitter, quoting yet another friendly outlet that had amplified his message,” Richardson wrote.
But Straka told Big League Politics that he and Richardson never spoke between the time when the #WalkAway account was allegedly re-instated, and when Richardson published his hit piece. Richardson, thus, could not have possibly known whether Straka was aware that his ban had been lifted.
The proper protocol would have been to ask Straka whether he was aware that his ban had been lifted, but Richardson skipped that step and proceeded with the story anyway.
Straka posted screenshots of his Facebook ban on Twitter early Wednesday afternoon.
“FACEBOOK JUST BANNED ME AS I AM PLANNING THE
#WalkAway March on Washington!!! I have been banned from posting leading up to the March. This is devastated for our ability to reach people!!! I was banned for mentioning my interview with Alex Jones. Can anybody help???” he wrote.

Apparently, linking to InfoWars no longer comports with Facebook’s community standards.
Alex Jones, founder of InfoWars, has been embattled with Silicon Valley tech giants, all of whom have deplatformed him in an attempt to silence conservative thought.
Stalinistic Democrats have naturally celebrated Jones’ ban.

CNN Host Admits He Was “Snookered” By Avenatti After Felony Extortion Conviction
Mainstream media outlets like CNN were instrumental in making Avenatti a political celebrity.
CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin admitted he felt “snookered” by disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti after the former political celebrity’s felony conviction for extortion on Friday night.
Toobin struck a penitent tone for his own network’s role in promoting the now-convicted felon. Avenatti was a regular on liberal mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC throughout 2018, frequently boasting of outlandish lawsuits that were set to finally take down President Trump.
In hindsight, after the “creepy porn lawyer’s” dramatic rise and fall, CNN is largely left with egg on their face for ever having taken him seriously. Toobin admitted this in the segment, showing more reflection than many of his mainstream media colleagues are inclined to undergo.
“I feel kind of snookered, because I took him seriously.”
Avenatti has been convicted for a scheme to extort tens of millions of dollars from sporting company Nike. He faces up to decades in prison in upcoming sentencing proceedings, and is currently housed in solitary in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. He’s also set to face even more criminal charges in California, related to accusations he stole lawsuit rewards from his legal clients.
Avenatti’s rise and fall from cable news darling and pugnacious anti-Trump “fighter” to disgraced felon facing a possible life sentence is about as dramatic an arc one could expect to see a public figure undergo.
CNN and MSNBC now face some serious sole searching for their role in promoting the fraud, having taken his boisterous claims at face value for almost a year and even implicitly promoting his ridiculous presidential admiration. At least Toobin appears willing to admit his role in feeding the CPL’s ambitions.
