Atlantic magazine staff writer and participant the recent University of Chicago conference on disinformation – Anne Applebaum – argued against the arrest of convicted child rapist Roman Polanski in a resurfaced op-ed from The Washington Post. Applebaum, a former member of The Washington Post’s Editorial Board, argued the case in an opinion piece from September 27th, 2009: “The Outrageous Arrest of Roman Polanski.” The near 400-word apologia appeared to make a case against the arrest and potential trial of the now 88-year-old film director Polanski, who was accused of raping a 13-year-old amongst other charges including rape by use of drugs, perversion, and
After months of denying the influence of Neo Nazis in Ukraine’s military, the Washington Post has finally conceded the point – long blasted as “conspiracy theory” or “Kremlin disinformation” – about the nation’s Azov battalion. In an article published April 6th 2022, the Washington Post explains in its headline: “Right-wing Azov Battalion emerges as a controversial defender of Ukraine.” The report cites Hans-Jakob Schindler, a senior director at the Counter Extremism Project, who admitted the “allure” for Neo Nazis in Ukraine is “not surprising,” in WaPo’s words. “There’s nothing shocking about it,” he said. “It’s the only conflict you can
There's a widening gap between real New York & woke New York, evidenced by the events surrounding the 20th anniversary of 9/11, and the vaccine passport mandates being broadly ignored by the city's finest and toughest.
Several Republican Members of Congress have launched an investigation to determine if Covid-19 originated through a Wuhan lab leak, something that even Washington Post writers are calling “long overdue.” “Understanding the cause of this pandemic — and ensuring that something like it never happens again — is the most important question facing the world today. Given the stakes, we cannot afford to settle for a limited, blinkered, or politicized understanding of the origin of this terrible disease,” wrote Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) to Anthony S. Fauci, director for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), in a letter
Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick – who the media and Democrats first claimed was bludgeoned to death with a fire extinguisher, then claimed was killed by bear spray – suffered two strokes and died of natural causes, a medical examiner has declared. Even the Washington Post, which peddled the conspiracy theory about Sicknick’s death, was forced to admit the facts on Monday afternoon following a new report: Capitol Police officer Brian D. Sicknick suffered two strokes and died of natural causes a day after he confronted rioters at the Jan. 6 insurrection, the District’s chief medical examiner has ruled.
Following recent revelations of glaring falsehoods reported by The Washington Post, the Bezos-owned paper has told The National Pulse it will not retract the fake news item. This week, the world learned of how The Washington Post published a false story, relying on a single source of information which turned out to be untrue. The story concerned the major, national news of President Trump making a phone call to Georgia State representatives regarding election fraud. Democrat Party officials relied on the fake news report to form the second impeachment case against Donald J. Trump. The Post’s refusal to retract should
New information about the failure to protect the U.S. Capitol – despite intelligence suggesting a pre-planned attack – asserts that it was President Trump’s team that forced the issue of National Guard deployment, while Army officials at the Pentagon were more concerned about the backlash they might face from the media, the DC Mayor, and the political left. The Washington Post claims to have seen a draft, internal memo from the Pentagon revealing that military planners rejected the idea of National Guard deployment ahead of the Capitol riot. This follows the news – first reported by Vanity Fair – that
