Before there was “Fake News,” there was fake news!
Before Trump began using the term to describe negative (ie: factual) news reporting of his lies and screw-ups, there was Fox, (aka: Bullshit Mtn.) Drudge, WND, Breitbart and their ilk.
Nowadays it’s tearing the country apart.
Study after study confirms that people who are faithful viewers and/or readers of Bullshit Mtn and the others have a smaller grip on reality than people who don’t pay attention to the news at all.
Right now, you’re probably asking yourself, “Where do all these fake news stories come from?”
I’m soooo glad you asked! 😉
Let’s take a look at one that’s currently making the tinfoil toupee circuit: That Hillary Clinton had Anthony Bourdain whacked!
On June 9th, a site called Neon Nettle claimed that Bourdain’s demise wasn’t a suicide, he was offed before he could expose Hillary’s “Elite Pedophile Ring.
As the world still reels in shock at the news that journalist Anthony Bourdain has been found dead, evidence is now emerging that the mainstream reporter was about to expose an elite pedophile ring just before he died.More recently, following news of a major child trafficking bust, sources are stating that Bourdain was planning on running “an exposé” and the sex slave network.
Btw, this “Elite Pedophile Ring” is not to be confused with Hillary’s other “Elite Pedophile Ring.” aka Pizzagate. This one was in Atlanta. Plus, this one was real. (No connection to Hillary, of course.)
That the “sources” were not identified is not the problem. There are ofttimes reasons for unnamed sources. The problem is, as Carl Sagan once stated,
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
So, what “extraordinary evidence” was offered to substantiate this “extraordinary claim?”
Nada! Zero! Ziltch!
They did cherry pick a tweet, in which Bourdain criticized Hillary for her response to the Weinstein scandal.
Well now, as every true-believing right-winger knows, if you cross the Clintons, you die! Eight months after he sealed his doom with this tweet, Bourdain died! Get the connection?
Still, I’m a bit foggy on how they connected Weinstein (or Hillary) to the Atlanta ring.
Neon Nettle did try to connect Bourdain’s death with Kate Spade’s suicide a few days ago.
Just this week, famous designer and Clinton Foundation member, Kate Spade reportedly killed herself. According to Spade’s family, she had also been threatened for speaking out.
Spade was “speaking out” about her sister’s mental health, and that caused her to be wiped out? And, what does that have to do with “Elite Pedophile Rings?”
They went on to make even more unsubstantiated claims, but it’s time to move on.
Next we come to Your News Wire, (YNW) home of “News. Truth. Unfiltered.”
YNW added to the hot steaming pile of bovine bowel movement with sheer proof of Hillary’s involvement. (So “sheer” that you can see right through it.)
Anthony Bourdain had been harassed and threatened by Hillary Clinton operatives just weeks before he was found dead in an apparent “suicide.”
According to investigators, Mr. Bourdain was planning to expose pedophile rings connected to Hollywood and D.C. shortly before his death.
Back in October of 2017, CNN’s Bourdain made statements regarding Harvey Weinstein, suggesting Hillary Clinton had to know of his history of being a sexual predator. Bourdain’s girlfriend, actress Asia Argento, accused Weinstein of raping her.
The tweet angered Hillary spokesman, Brian Fallon. He took to Twitter to tell Bourdain to “eat a scorpion.” Many other Clinton winged monkeys followed suit.
It’s no secret that people who cross the Clinton’s [sic] wind up dead … mostly from suicide!
Wow! So, if someone tells you to eat a scorpion, better watch your back or you’ll quit breathing before you know it.
There you have it. A not-so-straight line between sending Hillary a mildly critical tweet and fake suicides. Before this is over, this will be picked up and spread by sites like Trunews and InfoWars.
This would almost be funny if it were not for the fact that there are people who will actually believe this BS!
