Don’t hold your breath.
Much of the establishment media jumped all over the video of a so-called ‘Scheer supporter’ going on an unhinged racist rant.
Mainstream media pundits said Scheer ‘had to respond,’ and elites across the country eagerly retweeted the video and wrote stories about it, while notably leaving out the fact that there was widespread skepticism about the incident from the very beginning.
Now, with websites like SpencerFernando.com & The Post Millennial revealing that it looks very much like a ‘hate hoax,’ and with journalists from The Rebel sharing details bringing the story into even more doubt, those same establishment elites aren’t so eager to talk about it.
Yet, they also aren’t doing the same thing they demanded of Scheer: Responding right away.
After all, the establishment spread a shaky story trying to discredit and attack Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives, so at the very least they should be apologizing for pushing what clearly looks like a hoax.
Where are the apologies?
Where is the talk of ‘misinformation’ being spread on social media?
Where is the acknowledgement of error?
Nowhere to be found.
This is why the establishment press can not be trusted. They make stuff up to discredit people they disagree with (mostly Conservatives). They spread lies. They spread misinformation. And then, when exposed, they simply do nothing at all and pretend it didn’t happen.
Scheer and the Conservatives deserve an apology from the establishment media, but don’t hold your breath expecting it to happen.
