More Lies From CNN

Well, when all this peach mint nonsense is over, we know where Adam Schiff will be working ...

“Everyone relax, it was satire”: CNN Employee, Former Clinton Press Secretary, Caught Totally Making It Up

Satire has been redefined to mean “I told a whopper and later got caught at it”.

Joe Lockhart was ripped for making up a story about overhearing Republican senators who “only watch Fox News.”

Lockhart, who worked as White House press secretary in President Bill Clinton’s administration, tweeted a fictitious story about overhearing a few Republican senators explaining how they had never heard any of the evidence presented by the Democratic impeachment managers because they only watched to Fox News.

“Overheard convo between two Republican Senators who only watch Fox News. ‘Is this stuff real? I haven’t heard any of this before. I thought it was all about a server. If half the stuff Schiff is saying is true, we’re up shit’s creek. Hope the White House has exculpatory evidence,” Lockhart tweeted.

His story caught fire on Twitter and racked up nearly 5,000 retweets and over 17,000 likes. After his post went viral, he posted a follow-up tweet explaining that he made the whole thing up, writing, “Ok maybe I made up the convo, but you know that’s exactly what they’re thinking.”

...

After several people blasted him for making up the story, Lockhart returned to tell everyone to “relax,” tweeting, “Everyone relax. This is satire. Satire to make the point that Senators that are deciding the President’s fate who only watch Fox News have never heard this stuff before. Because Fox is part of the coverup.”

Right. Because Fox News hasn’t covered every single aspect of this in mind-numbing detail half a million times for years. Therefore they practically forced Lockhart to Tweet some crock. Poor guy was just, just triggered by their wrongness, no doubt.

Naturally, Lockhart’s correcting the record did not receive nearly as much attention as his original “report” of the alleged “conversation.” This follow-up tweet got less than 500 retweets and 5,200 “likes.”

To make this fake news even more rich, Lockhart hosts a podcast called “Words Matter,” which describes itself as “Dedicated to truth, facts and objective reality.”

The Babylon Bee owned the CNN analyst with this response: “Leave the satire to us; we’ll leave the fake news to you.”

...

Yet Lockhart would not back down. Rather than reconsidering his tweet and apologizing for it, he accused his critics of being conspiracy theorists.

“Seems like I poked the bear today. The purveyors of Pizzagate and the Seth Rich conspiracy are lecturing me on honesty. I told a joke, you guys are a destructive joke that is killing our democracy. Other than that, hope you’re enjoying the trial and have a nice evening,” the former White House press secretary tweeted.

My personal truth off the cuff opinion is, if anyone honest with authority can ever be found and assigned to investigate, it will turn out that Pizzagate was real and that Seth Rich suffered Arkancide for stealing all the DNC data and sending it to Wikileaks. Plus, he was never associated with any Russians in any way.

PS - Fox News reported the Pizzagate story with strong doubts, and mentioned that the Seth Rich “robbery gone wrong” conspiracy story was not proveable. Which is pretty honest reporting, I’d say.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
