Now? Well, not now, they’ve been making stuff up for a very, very, long time.
Was the woman even there? In the video, she’s says one of the fellows was a smoking a “black and mild” …. oddly specific. She also says she witnessed the police gun down a young man.
Girl is convincing, and maybe she believes what she’s saying. The problem is that it is not true.
Fox news, acting in the fine idiotic news media tradition, had to apologize and retract their story about the Baltimore police gunning down a poor young man for no reason. It turns out, no one got shot.
BREAKING: Fox News anchor apologizes for error regarding report of black man being shot in #Baltimore.
Why check to see if someone actually got shot when you can inflame society?
A note: When I use words such as “they”, I’m not referring to a specific race, ethnicity, or what-have-you. I’m referring to a specific class of people …… the victim class. These are people who revel in being a victim. Most often they get rewarded by idiots such as Fox News, who make their living by hyperbole, rather than facts.
It’s natural for people to believe the cards are stacked against them. But, when the belief is reinforced by the media, the rich, the famous, then, they take the victimhood status to a different, unrealistic level. This leads to madness. Madness in our laws, madness in our social mores. Civil society breaks down, and you have chaos, which is essentially what the radical leftists want.
