CNN Thumb Chris Cillizza: The Left Has Pushed Two Racial-Arson Hoaxes. The Right, Meanwhile, Has Criticized the Left For Pushing Two Racial-Arson Hoaxes. As You Can See, Both Sides Are Equally to Blame.

Ah. Perfect.

Both the left and the right got Covington wrong, and then got Smollet wrong. They just got it wrong in different ways -- the left got it wrong by getting it wrong, and the right got it wrong by noticing the left had gotten it wrong.

You're everything we've come to expect from CNN "analysis."

The point is that, once again, the left and right were not engaged in the same project. One side was running full speed with confirmation bias and got the story wrong. The other side looked at the actual facts (as provided by the videos) and successfully argued the truth was other than it first appeared. The "counterattack" wasn’t of the same nature as the initial attack. Why can't Chris Cillizza see those differences?

He's a paid shill for a political party. You might just as well ask "Why can't Cory Booker see that Cory Booker is a dummy?"

Meanwhile, the "right wing" is really going to "seize" and "pounce" on this: Nigerian brothers testify before grand jury, says Chicago reporter.



Am I doing exactly what the leftwing CNN shill-media is doing in promoting actual facts instead of hoaxes?
