Washington Post Writer Meagan Flynn Proves She’s An American Idiot

Published

on

A writer at the Washington Post, Amazon titan Jeff Bezos’ blog, made a hilarious error in the publication of a story about President Donald J. Trump being an “American Idiot.”

John Hanrahan of the “On the Media” radio show first pointed out the gaff on his Twitter account.

“In honor of Trump visit, Brits launch campaign to lift ‘American Idiot’ to top of the charts,” says the headline of a story written by Meagan Flynn.

“American Idiot” is an early 2000’s song by the band Green Day. The band is led by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong.

In her hasty attempt to provide a laugh at the expense of Trump and former President George W. Bush, Flynn quoted satirical site Clickhole.com as a reliable source.

“But despite the song’s ubiquity, Armstrong waited 13 years to reveal – in an article he wrote for Clickhole.com – the the ‘American Idiot’ was President George W. Bush,” she wrote.

Here is the headline from the story published in satirical website created to mock Buzzfeed, Clickhole:

The problem, the whole story is clearly made up, and Armstrong did not write it. (Just like all the articles on The Onion’s version of clickbait.) Flynn magnificently overlooked this minor detail in writing her piece, as did the editorial staff at WaPo, apparently.

The disreputable paper was forced to retreat with its tail between its legs.

“Correction: This story has been update to remove material attributed to a satirical Web publication, Clickhole, which should not have been treated seriously,” WaPo said in an update to the story.

Remember, publications like the Washington Post are the “trusted” and “reliable” sources of news in America. They are the arbiters of truth, and anything that does not fit their prescribed narrative is deemed to be “fake news.”

It sure is a shame to see such a trustworthy news outlet make such a hilarious major error, likely hurting its credibility moving forward.

Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’

Published

on

After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.

“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.

Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.

Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:

On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.

Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.

Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.

The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.

Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…

Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
