The Young Turks, a far-left news outlet, spent the better part of last week race-baiting over the death of Jazmine Barnes, a 7-year-old black girl who was murdered by a 20-year-old black man.
Almost immediately after Barnes’ death, white Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King blasted a Twitter message to his 1.1 million followers claiming that a white man in a red pickup truck who sped away from the scene was responsible for the killing. The political left immediately seized upon the opportunity to highlight the alleged white on black crime, and The Young Turks joined the hustle.
“Manhunt For White Man Who Murdered 7-Year-Old Black Girl,” said a now-deleted Tweet linking to a now-deleted YouTube video with the same title. The organization offered no explanation for pulling the reports, nor an apology for whipping up race-based hatred.
Below is a screenshot of the video, featuring blowhard Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur, which garnered at least 63,000 views:
The outlet also employed some lefty-bro named Francis Maxwell to bash Trump for not addressing the murder, as noted by InfoWars reporter Paul Joseph Watson.
“The Young Turks claimed that President Trump deliberately ignored the tragic murder of a 7-year-old girl because the shooter was white. They posted 4 videos pushing the ‘white racist hate crime’ narrative. Turns out the shooter was black. Young Turks deleted all their videos,” Watson said.

“Another [deleted] video featured a panel discussion of the story while a fourth video featured Hasan Piker again pushing the narrative that the shooting was a racist hate crime,” said Watson in an InfoWars piece on the deleted video.
The suspect, taken into custody Sunday, is Eric Black Jr., a 20-year-old black man.
The Young Turks did not immediately respond to a comment request.

FAKE NEWS: Media Publishes Disgustingly Mischaracterized Articles on the Death of Kristi Noem’s Grandmother to Attack Her COVID-19 Approach
The fake news media will stoop to any low to attack conservatives.
On Tuesday the Daily Beast published a horrifically misleading story about the death of South Dakota governor Kristi Noem’s grandmother, which was later picked up by sites like Business Insider and MSN.
Daily Beast “Special Correspondent” Michael Daly wrote in a piece titled “Anti-Mask Guv’s Grandmother Died in Nursing Home Ravaged by COVID” that despite the death of Governor Noem’s grandmother, 98-year-old Aldys Arnold, Noem “continues to downplay the virus, refuse a mask mandate, and ignore the terrible price her state is paying.”
Keep in mind that the primary objective here is not to report Arnold’s death, but to lambast Noem’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and in a sense blame her for her death.
That is despicable enough in itself, but what makes it worse is that Noem’s grandmother likely didn’t even die from COVID. Daly tells us in the second paragraph of his story that, according to Noem’s office, Arnold tested negative for the virus and that no cause of death was given.
12 out of the 13 deaths at that nursing home between November 14 and November 28 were “COVID-related”—the one exception being Aldys Arnold.
To add fuel to the fire, Business Insider writer Kelly McLaughlin ran her story with the exact same characterization as The Daily Beast’s, with a duplicate version of her article also appearing in MSN.
This is the same fake news media that reluctantly covered—or outright ignored—reports of Democratic governors stuffing COVID patients into nursing homes back in the spring. When we say that the fake news media is the enemy of the people, we wholeheartedly mean it.
