Presdient Obama, Hillary Clinton and the rest of the media establishment have made the so-called “fake news” one of the gravest threats to democracy.
However, they usually manage to forget this kind of “fake news” which they were so eager to believe but once again turns out to be just another hoax.
Police arrested Andrew McClinton on Wednesday in conjunction with the arson of Hopewell Missionary
Baptist Church, which was burned and vandalized on Nov. 1, a week before Donald Trump was elected president.
A bishop from Hopewell told the Associated Press that Mr. McClinton is a member of the predominantly black church.
The suspect is charged with first-degree arson of a place of worship.
Will there be a retraction from those involved in spreading the “fake news” meme? Don’t hold your breath:
Writing in the Daily Beast in the aftermath of the arson, journalist Justin Glawe criticizedMr. Trump for failing to denounce the act in his own words, even though the Trump campaign released a statement condemning the arson.
“So these are the stakes of this election: a potential president who would not even condemn in his own words terrorism done in his own name,” Mr. Glawe wrote in a piece published on Nov. 6.
Now, will Obama, Clinton and the rest of the media condemn this media hit piece which is nothing more than a smear job?
