Social justice warrior posing as a reporter

They were all published by the online news service The Intercept.

They were all based on the lies of a social justice warrior named "Juan Thompson." He fabricated lies and created email addresses and the like to support his made up manure to push an anti-police and frankly, anti-American agenda. He is a racist trying to divide Americans by the color of his skin.

The editor of the Intercept, Betsy Reed, herself a victim of his fake email addresses, painstakingly went out of her way not to call the liar a liar:
The Intercept recently discovered a pattern of deception in the actions of a staff member. The employee, Juan Thompson, was a staff reporter from November 2014 until last month. Thompson fabricated several quotes in his stories and created fake email accounts that he used to impersonate people, one of which was a Gmail account in my name.
An investigation into Thompson’s reporting turned up three instances in which quotes were attributed to people who said they had not been interviewed. In other instances, quotes were attributed to individuals we could not reach, who could not remember speaking with him, or whose identities could not be confirmed. In his reporting Thompson also used quotes that we cannot verify from unnamed people whom he claimed to have encountered at public events. Thompson went to great lengths to deceive his editors, creating an email account to impersonate a source and lying about his reporting methods.
Did they fire him?


They only retracted one story. The rest they corrected in such a manner that it allows his fabrications -- his false narrative -- his propagandistic lies -- to live on.

If he were a conservative, he would have been fired on the spot and publicly humiliated.

So why do lefties lie?

Why are their so many rape hoaxes?

Why are there so many hate crime hoaxes?

Why are there so many journalistic hoaxes?

Because there is no penalty for lying.

Any time there is an outrageous report, go to the source before you say anything. Get the full quote. And if it is from Rolling Stone or the Intercept, fugged-about-it


  1. Lefties always lie. They could stop any time, but refuse to.

  2. Congenital Liar: see Hillary Clinton.
    Synonyms: Democrat, Progressive, Leftist, Main Stream Media, etc., etc.... - Elric

  3. Did they fire him? Maybe not, but the apology does indicate as of last month he's no longer working for them as a staff reporter. My guess is he left because he was hired by the NYT. He's well qualified for the Times. He's their kind of guy. He can take over where Jayson Blair left off.

  4. There is no legal penalty for lying in a "news" story as far as I can determine from google. And for many in our loyalty driven media,Truth is boring, click killing suicide

  5. The editor is probably terrified of firing him because, you know ... Racisss!

  6. Myrtle Beach charge a woman with a false rape
