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.
POLITICAL HIT? Pro-Trump Portland, Oregon Print Shop Owner Gunned Down in Parking Lot
The shooting of a Portland man is colored with political connotations.
A Portland man who operated a print shop was shot and killed in the parking lot of a nightclub on Saturday, with police thus far unable to apprehend a suspect or establish a motive. 40-year old William Peters was shot and killed in the parking lot of the Acropolis bar, with a friend of his, Adam David-Lawrence Arrambide, also being shot and killed in a double homicide.
Peters was senselessly murdered on his four-year old daughter’s birthday. He also leaves behind a fiancée. Reports sourced from purported friends of Peters indicate that the 503print owner was leaving the club uneventfully when a vehicle pulled up in front of the parking spot his truck was in. After an exchange of words, Peters, and Arrambide were shot.
Big League Politics has learned that Peters previously made himself a target of ANTIFA intimidation for printing pro-Donald Trump banners and imagery at his print shop. The father also personally supported Donald Trump, a bold move in the notoriously left-wing and bigoted Oregon city.
On a Portland Reddit page, left-wing haters celebrated the family man’s death, claiming the shooting was deserved because of Peters’ support for Trump. Other users on the forum confirmed that the small businessman was known as a Trump supporter, potentially making it onto the Stasi-style ‘lists’ that the extremist group has compiled of conservatives in Multnomah County.
Portland ANTIFA has proven more than willing to target businesses that stand in the way of their own political power, especially in the city’s downtown area. In the wake of Peters’ seemingly random homicide, it’s difficult to ignore the political implications of the targeted assassination. Anyone with information on the disturbing double homicide is being asked to step forward and contact Det. Scott Broughton at Scott.Broughton@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-3774 or Det. Eric McDaniel at Eric.McDaniel@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0833.
A GoFundMe raising money for Peters’ funeral expenses has already received more than $8,500 in contributions from mourners.
