Fake news

Gee, who knew that the famed “reset button” with Russia was actually going to lead to an attempt at purely politically-motivated war?

As the Washington Post’s story of Russian hackers burrowed deep within the US electrical grid, ready to plunge the nation into darkness at the flip of a switch unraveled into the story of a single non-grid-connected laptop with a piece of malware on it, the Post has faced fierce criticism over how it fact checked and verified the details of its story. It turns out that the Post not only did not fact check the story until after it was published live on its website, but in its defense of the story, the Post made a number of false statements about what was written when, which the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine reveals.

Oops. As Iowahawk says: “Other than that, we stand by every word of our previous article claiming exactly the opposite.

Can anybody come up with a reason to even bother with Jurassic Media at all nowadays? I’d be interested to hear one, because I’m drawing a complete blank, myself. The annoyance that goes with the insult of being lied to so obviously just isn’t offset anymore by the mild amusement at their unceasing pathetic attempts to drive home a patently false Lefty narrative. If it ever was.
