 Smollett is a 36-year-old wealthy man, a celebrity.  If he had been given the chance, he would have sent innocent people to prison — and  would have done so with support of the media and elected representatives.

 

This is America 2019.      https://www.american...ax_machine.html

 

First, one finds journalistic hoaxes.  Among these are the hoax of the Duke lacrosse-players and the UVA rape case.  Such cases are fabricated and sensationalized in order to support the ideological claim of "rape culture on campuses."

 

Second, there are academic hoaxes, which are "studies" based on fabricated data and cherry-picked samples designed to provide an ideological outcome.  For example, there was a study that showed that gays die much earlier because people do not support calling two men in a romantic relationship a marriage.

 

The third type is the fake hate crime.  They are meant to prove the existence of violent bigots who attack the heroic victims, such as Jussie Smollett, Mathew Shepherd, and Tyler Clementi.

Criticism Mounts for CNN over Charlottesville Hoax  https://www.breitbar...ttesville-hoax/

 

  A growing chorus of critics is questioning CNN’s repeated — and false — reports that President Donald Trump referred to neo-Nazis as “very fine people” in his remarks about the Charlottesville, Virginia, riots in 2017.

 

As Breitbart News has explained exhaustively, and as the transcript of the press conference proves beyond any doubt, President Trump was specifically excluding the neo-Nazis, whom he said should be “condemned totally.”

 

Trump was instead referring to non-violent demonstrators who protested the removal of a state of Confederate general Robert E. Lee — as well as to peaceful left-wing protesters opposing them (and opposing the neo-Nazis).

Here are some of the press accounts obliterated by the Mueller report:

  • Paul Manafort never visited Julian Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy;Guardian reporting otherwise is utterly fake.
  • Buzzfeed’s claim that the President told Michael Cohen to lie about negotiations to build a Trump Tower is Moscow -- FAKE.
  • CNN’s claim that Cohen asserted that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting (bruited by Carl Bernstein, Jim Sciutto and Marshall Cohen) -- FAKE.
  • Rachel Maddow’s charge that “the Russians may be controlling our government” -- FAKE.
  • Claims by Marcy Wheeler (repeated by others, including the WashingtonPost) that the post-election contacts between Trump and Russia were evidence of a conspiracy -- FAKE.

Also FAKE: the Steele Dossier, pee-pee tape stories, secret meetings in Prague, and corrupt financial dealings with Russia going back years before the election.
