A fake news reporter resigned on Friday after a tweet making an unverified claim that yesterday’s Annapolis, MD newspaper shooter wore a “Make America Great Again” hat while carrying out his heinous act.
“I am ashamed of my tweet, which taints the good work of fair-minded journalists everywhere,” Conor Berry of The Republican wrote in his resignation letter. The Republican is a partner of Mass Live.
Here is the tweet in question:
“We need to be more vigilant than ever to be fair and accurate in a climate in which we are scrutinized and criticized,” said Wayne Phaneuf, executive editor of The Republican. “The Republican newspaper and our partners at MassLive.com are committed to report the news with the truth paramount.”
Berry tried to manufacture a story, but ended up being the story.
Yesterday, a gunman opened fire at the Capital Gazette, a newspaper with which he had a longstanding grudge. He killed five and injured others.
“Jarrod Warren Ramos, 38, of Laurel, MD has been named as the suspect. Ramos reportedly lost a libel claim against the paper in 2012.
Ramos was found guilty of harassment in 2013 and sentenced to probation. He lost an appeal for a trial by jury in 2015.
In an email exchange between Ramos and several staff members of the Capital Gazette from November 2016, Ramos lashed out at the paper for apparently removing a comment he made from a story they ran about his harassment case.”
BLP Passage Ends.

Leftist Covers Wall Street Bull in Sex Toys with Shirtless ‘Putin’ on Top
Visitors to the iconic bull statue on Wall Street in Manhattan were greeted by some unusual additions to the monument on Monday morning. The statue, symbolizing the financial concept of a ‘bull market,’ was found covered in an assortment of colored adult toys, with a shirtless actor wearing a Vladimir Putin mask riding the bronze bull, dressed in a fashion comparable to an infamous set of photos of the Russian President riding a horse on vacation in Siberia in 2009.
The stand-in Putin was initially mistaken by some onlookers to be a mere figurine or mannequin, but it appears from additional photos of the scene that it was a flesh and blood performance artist or actor.

The spectacle arising the day after the summit meeting in Helsinki between President Donald Trump and President Putin possibly represents a completely new level of absolute derangement and mania from liberals obsessed with a series of conspiracy theories involving the Russian President and his supposed relationship to the American President.
A Washington D.C based restaurateur named Jeff Jetton has claimed responsibility for the display, stating that the New York City Police Department contacted him on Tuesday morning in regards to incident. Jetton maintained that the approximately 130 adult toys had been donated by an “adult entertainment” company for use in the prank. Speaking in a statement to the Huffington Post, he said that “anybody who tells you sex toys aren’t good tools of resistance has never had a bag of dicks and a little bit of ingenuity.”
Reports of the bizarre scene first surfaced on a Reddit thread, with some users expressing amazement and surprise that this sort of risque display could be constructed in an area of New York City constantly patrolled by police without the creator(s) being stopped from doing so. Some surmised that it was created with the tacit approval of the NYPD, and that the items used in doing so had been donated from a stash of police-seized property.
