I call on the Associated Press to stop pushing this Fake News.
Until someone is apprehended, let us assume no "hate crime" was committed -- especially when the Associated Press bends over backward not to link Muslims to very real Muslim terrorism.
By promoting these hoaxes, the Associated press and other news organizations reward liars.
Liberals have gotten away with silencing conservatives with Fake News for nearly thirty years. The victims of these Fake News hoaxes invariably are white males. Tawana Brawley said white cops gang raped her. Crystal Mangum said white lacrosse players at Duke gang raped her. "Jackie" said fraternity brothers at Virginia gang-raped her.
These three liars never spent a minute in prison for their false police reports.
And news organizations never apologized -- except Rolling Stone, and then only after a libel suit was filed.
In every case, the Associated Press helped turn the events into a national circus.
Innocent men had their lives ruined by these hoaxes.
From the Associated Press:
A Mississippi man with a prior criminal record was arrested Wednesday in the burning of an African-American church that was spray-painted with the words "Vote Trump," and the church's bishop said the man is a member of the congregation.
The state fire marshal said investigators do not believe the fire was politically motivated, but there a signs it may have been done to appear that way.
Andrew McClinton, 45, of Leland, Mississippi, is scheduled to make an initial court appearance Thursday in Greenville — the city where Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.
McClinton is charged with first degree arson of a place of worship, said Warren Strain, spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Public Safety.
The church was identified as African-American, but the man was not?
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
