CNN: "The Justice Department on Tuesday abandoned the idea that pro-Trump rioters had used bear spray against Officer Brian Sicknick during the January 6 riot, a major change after implying for weeks that bear spray, not pepper spray, had been deployed."…
Virtually everything the corporate media said about Officer Sicknick's death from Jan 6 until this week - almost four months: from fire extinguisher to bear spray - was completely false. It became part of the impeachment trial and the script Biden reads:…
The first tweet has the wrong CNN article. Here's the right one.

One section is headlined: "Murder probe fizzles"…
Hate @DarrenJBeattie's politics all you want, but he was one of the few who, from the start, was pointing out all the huge contradictions and evidentiary holes while the herd animals in corporate media manically jerked from one lie to the next (sorry, that's just true). And now:
Death toll from January 6 Capitol riot:

-- Pro-Trump protesters killed: 4 (two by heart attacks, one by stress-induced methamphetamine overdose, one fatally shot by an unnamed cop while unarmed).

-- People killed by pro-Trump protesters: 0.

In one sense, this is just the latest dreary article whining about Substack by a jealous, resentful, wispy, inconsequential journalist: those come daily now - just a reflexive content-filler for digital outlets. But it's worth taking a brief look at this one: it's quite revealing
Just **72** hours ago, the Guardian was forced by public shaming to correct a falsehood that many outlets have long recognized as false: namely, Substack recruited me with an advance. Yet today, the Guardian publishes the same lie by @jamesrbuk. Look!… ImageImage
Do see what's going on? These are the outlets that insist that Substack writers are just "bloggers" while they -- the august, trustworthy news sites -- are carefully edited and fact-checked. The reality is the opposite: *they publish any shit that pops into their bloggers' heads.

The Left Continues to Destroy Itself and Others With Evidence-Free Destruction of Reputations…
Equating accusations with proven fact is reckless and repressive. As we are yet again seeing in the NY Mayoral Race with the evidence-free accusations against Scott Stringer, it is also standard behavior in liberal politics, whereby they ruin lives without a second thought.
Last year, left-wing groups instantly embraced a sickening smear campaign against a young gay challenger to 15-term Dem incumbent Richie Neal, treating Alex Morse as if he were a sexual predator. When that was proven false, this is what they NYT asked the left. The answer is no. ImageImage

This anti-science scold is *celebrating* how he shamed families who took their kids to deserted beaches even though he knows now it was safe to do. The "follow-the-science" media turned him into a hero. Taking kids into the sun was the *healthier* choice.

And then - like so many elite in media, entertainment and public health - this media hero turned around just *weeks* later and encouraged everyone to attend densely packed street protests that he liked. They manipulated "science" for power and control:

I know so many people who have said that was a major eye-opening moment of epiphany for them. Elites who spent months demanding nobody leave their house & shaming everyone who did, then turned around & *demanded* they go to the streets for protests:…

The Media is Lying About Joe Rogan Right Now -- by @joerogan

(Watch the videos there and judge for yourself)…
Of course there's never an attempt to grapple with why Rogan has such a huge following. A big reason is his listeners know he's doing his best to figure out the truth without being captive to any orthodoxy, but, like him, they know his limits & appreciate his humility.
Liberals assume anyone who gets their news and info from any non-approved liberal elite sources -- NYT/WPost/CNN/MSNBC -- are stupid sheep who can't think for themselves. That's why they were shocked nobody called protective services after hearing Tucker:

Today is a day ending in "y," which means that @TheGuardian published a false claim that could have been checked in about 5 seconds and that multiple outlets have already corrected.
This completely false article that everyone knows is false is still up -- unretracted and uncorrected. It just never happened. But who cares?…
One last time (he says with false hope):

Writers confirmed to have received Substack advances:

Freddie deBoer

Writers who *haven't: @jessesingal, @sullydish, @cwarzel, Graham Linehan, me

Or Pearl Harbor?
Or the Oklahoma City bombing? Or the dismantling of civil liberties in the name of the Cold War and War on Terror? Or the mass surveillance program secretly and illegally implemented by NSA aimed at US citzens?

Completely unhinged drama queen script to say that about Jan 6.
