Ana Kasparian Admits That Leftwing Bias Led to Her Promoting a Serial Fraudster's Claims Without Fact-Checking.
But She Says She Was Misled by the "Mainstream" Media, Which She Says Promotes These Lies Due to Their Own Biases

Young Turks idiot Ana Kasparian promoted the hell out of Rebekah Jones' lunatic claims about Ron DeSantis "kidnapping" her son. What actually happened is that Jones' equally-mentally-ill son openly threatened to shoot up his school and was arrested for those threats by Tallahassee police, and none of this had a thing to do with DeSantis.

But Jones has been serially lying about DeSantis for years now, and making a career of it. She previously claimed that DeSantis was hiding all the covid deaths in Florida, and she claimed she was fired for exposing this truth. In fact, she was making it up and she was fired for being insubordinate and incompetent.

But she did raise a lot of money from lefties on GoFundMe for these lies.

And then after claiming DeSantis had "kidnapped" her son, she went right to GoFundMe to raise money for, I guess, ransoming her kidnapped son back from the Cartel Boss Ron DeSantis.

GoFundMe hasn't blocked her from raising funds, of course.

Ana Kasparian promoted these lies without doing any fact-checking, all due to her political bias against DeSantis.

That's not me saying that -- Ana Kasparian herself said that.

But she has one excuse she can make for herself -- she was relying on "mainstream" media claims about Jones, and the "mainstream" media also makes these kind of politically-motivated "mistakes" all the time due to their own biases.

Again, she says all this.

She also adds that Rebekah Jones just might be a "grifter."

Really? Do tell!

It is actually really big of @AnaKasparian to admit that she was wrong about Rebekah Jones (who is a liar and crazy person), and motivated by personal political biases against Governor Ron DeSantis. Good for her.

I have never seen anything like this from media outlets:

ib @lndian_Bronson

Ana Kasparian admits that TYT didn't fact check the Rebekah Jones nonsense due to her not liking DeSantis & wanting to get him. She acknowledges this was the reason the media ran with the claims as well. She apologizes to audience members who donated to her scam GoFundMe as well

A media property as big as TYT acknowledging in an apology that:

1. It made a mistake in attacking someone falsely

2. It has a political agenda

3. The political agenda itself led to the mistake

is flatly astonishing.

Good for @AnaKasparian and her credibility, imho.

Kasparian is getting a lot of grief from the left, for speaking heresies like 1, women have vaginas but don't want to be called "Vagina-Havers," but "women," 2, crime is bad and there should be less of it, and, worst of all, 3, she's "freaking out" that her condo association is going to demand money out of her pocket to pay for the expensive electric-vehicle charging stations the state of California is mandating that she and her fellow property-owners build on their property.

More here. When Cenk Ugyur claims it's a "lie" that Democrats intend to ban gas stoves, she asks, "Is it though? That's where we're heading."

She seems to be realizing, if slowly, that the left deploys a paradigm of "It's Not Happening/And It's Good That's It's Happening."

Oh, she suddenly realized Crime Is Bad when she was mugged by a mentally-ill homeless person who the state refused to keep in jail despite a long history of criminality.

The Podcast of the Lotus Eaters gave their video about all this the title, "Ana Is No Longer 4 (Years Old)," congratulating her on her first days in kindergarten.
