WASH POST Promotes McCarthyite Blacklist From a New, Hidden, and Very Shady Group

The Washington Post, in a McCarthyism fever, push the blacklist organization PropOrNot that ties any right leaning news venue as being a pawn of Russia. The Post has pushed this unvetted and highly suspect blog as highly qualified individuals. Only no one can be identified. This is a witch hunt being abetted by the WaPo’s agenda. Read the particulars here.

As Written by Glenn Greenwald for the Intercept:

THE WASHINGTON POST ON THURSDAY NIGHT promoted the claims of a new, shadowy organization that smears dozens of U.S. news sites that are critical of U.S. foreign policy as being “routine peddlers of Russian propaganda.” The article by reporter Craig Timberg – headlined “Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say” – cites a report by a new, anonymous website calling itself “PropOrNot,” which claims that millions of Americans have been deceived this year in a massive Russian “misinformation campaign.”

This Post report was one of the most widely circulated political news articles on social media over the last 48 hours, with dozens, perhaps hundreds, of U.S. journalists and pundits with large platforms hailing it as an earth-shattering exposé. It was the most-read piece on the entire Post website after it was published on Friday.

Yet the article is rife with obviously reckless and unproven allegations, and fundamentally shaped by shoddy, slothful journalistic tactics. It was not surprising to learn that, as BuzzFeed’s Sheera Frenkel noted, “a lot of reporters passed on this story.” Its huge flaws are self-evident But the Post gleefully ran with it and then promoted it aggressively, led by its Executive Editor Marty Baron……

    Fake news is entirely the province of liberals who do nothing but lie.

      Look stupid – it has been clearly proven that liberals did not fall for the fake news so the clowns started aiming at dunces like you that are far more gullible since you believe in religion

        And if your right and we are wrong, what does that hurt anyone? However if we are right and you are wrong, I think you may be in a world of hurt.

        • Mark N

          It hurts you because you have wasted a load of time and money and it will never hurt me because I will be cremated. In case you were wondering your life’s information is carried in your brain and when you burn the brain it is gone. There is NO WAY for your silly heaven to exist.

          • Swed.

            You are one sick hater, sad.

          • Mark N

            Sorry that you are so dumb and gullible. I hate stupidity and lies – which is what religion is.

          He will be the one that will wish he had listened to you.

          • Linda Shelton

            God has said he will harden the hearts of those that don’t believe, and while we can pray for those we love, sometimes that is all we can do. He says his life information is in his brain, but mine is in the book of life that God keeps.

        Says the moron that thinks that everything came from nothing.

  • frankenbiker

    Lets see, fake news or true, hard to tell these days. Not being sure, I don’t trust any site that say’s that its “news”. CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and all the rest of MSM do nothing but promote their own agendas, it makes no difference. Sites like this are just as bad, so you really have to dig to get to the truth. Not so hard to do in todays age, but thirty years ago, you took what you got. Today, there are so many news sources that you can verify, or discard, anything.

    Who actually reads WAPO? Not me! I do not trust the media.

    Reminds me of a wounded animal, squirming around trying to find something to bite.
    Leftist morons (I know, stammering) are totally incapable of rational thought or critical thinking. Educating them such flies in the face of their emotional tantrums. Remember, you are dealing with arrested development individuals who are given the right to vote even though they cannot create a balance sheet to aid their decision. Rainbows and unicorns is all they can understand.

    This is so irrelevant now that Trump has admitted that he was lying during the entire campaign! We REAL Americans have been betrayed AGAIN! I deeply regret the vote I cast for Trump, against my better judgement!

    If there is to be no Justice in America, then there can be NO AMERICA! It’s just that simple!

    It’s time to REALLY take back America AGAIN……………………….Old School – circa 1861!
