If you have been following the news, you’ve probably heard that fake journalist James O’Keefe and his organization, Project Veritas, have been out spreading the stupid again. Apparently, they approached the Washington Post with a fake story about Roy Moore molesting yet another underage girl. The goal here was clearly to poison the well for all those women who have already come foreword (and perhaps any who might be thinking about it) by showing just how easy it is to get fake accusations into the media. One clearly fake accusation would, so they clearly hoped, go a long way to dilute the impact of any standing accusations from credible sources.
Only the Washington Post was wise to the con and busted them good.
So, you might wonder, how the right wing propagandists might deal with this set-back? How would they handle the apparently loss of this narrative?
Apparently the folks handling the Twitter account at Fox News deal with it by telling the same story anyway.
(Too bad the guy posting the story and the one posting the blurb in the video aren’t on the same page. Still, the disconnect between the actual story and the tweet is pretty damned telling.)
