Leftist Media Fact-Checker Who Falsely, And Absurdly, Spread Lie That US Marines Tattoo Was a Nazi Tattoo and Smeared an ICE Agent Now Hired by NYU Journalism School to... Teach a Class Called "Reporting on the Far Right"


This was the woman who looked at the disabled veteran seen working for ICE here:

..and retweeted deranged actor Ron Perlman's hysterical, ignorant claim that this was an Iron Cross tattoo on his elbow.

Um, no. That's not what an Iron Cross looks like.

Personally, it took me three seconds to recognize that cross as the very-common cross called a "St. Florian Cross" seen on thousands of firefighter's helmets and in police logos.

And, apparently, serving as unit logos for troops in Afghanistan.

But she blared out to the world he was a Secret Nazi.

A fact-checker.

Who doesn't bother checking facts.

Even when working as a fact-checker for The New Yorker, which, once upon a time, prided itself on its meticulous and almost-unerring fact-checking.

And now she'll be teaching a class on "reporting on the far right."

Will "correctly identifying common shapes" be a prerequisite for the course?

Will she instruct students on how to identify Nazis with a 100,000% success rate (that is, you identify 1000 times as many Nazis as you actually see)?

They're not permitted to fail. They don't even have to pay a penalty. (This "journalist" was immediately hired by Media Matters to continue her nonpartisan journ0lisming after her firing from the New Yorker.)

Now a J-school deems her eminent enough to teach a class on "Reporting on the Far Right." Does that include the part about recklessly -- libelously -- callously -- branding people as Nazis without the briefest moment of consideration?

The Clique -- the Guild -- the Gilded Class -- the Meritless Meritocracy -- gets its jobs and promotions based on politics and connections and racial/sexual calculus, not on achievement or talent.

It's a system that they all benefit from, so they'll go down fighting to protect it absolutely.

They know that they must all hang together or they shall surely hang apart.

And speaking of this miserable, entitled, unfirable class:


That's super-progressive, super-concerned-about-the-poor-and-disadvantaged and super-interested in "fairness" William Macy and Felicity Huffman showing off their I-Voted-for-Hillary stickers. It was probably about the time of this picture's taking that they were scheming how best to game the system and lie and bribe the gatekeepers of the Gilded Class to let their deficient daughter into a somewhat-above-average college.

LOL: And now Twitter has apparently banned Twitter-addicted absurd cuck John Podhoretz for remarking upon this fine "journalist."

I can't object to the censorship here -- John Podhoretz is one of those eat-me-last Pet Conservatives who applauds when other people are deplatformed.

It's good to see his fat ass booted off. Give him something to think about.

And maybe give him some free time to do some squats.

Update: Lizzy writes:

Talia [Lavin] is also the one who was weaving all sorts of complex conspiracy theories about the true meaning of "learn to code" - and likely was a prime reason that phrase resulted in insta-suspension of twitter accounts.

I can't confirm all of that but as this thread shows, she certainly was obsessive about pushing to get "Learn to Code" branded as coordinated far-right hate speech.

Here she is pushing the "harassment" angle.

She really made her own cottage industry of it, writing for the far leftwing New Republic that Learn to Code might be connected to (gasp!) GamerGate.

And then people started getting banned, automatically, for speaking the Forbidden Words "Learn to Code."
