CBS Affiliate Reignites Debunked Pizzagate Conspiracy Theory
Huffington Post - about 1 month
A CBS affiliate in Atlanta is feeding the Internet conspiracy mill with a new “investigation” into the so-called Pizzagate story.  Pizzagate was the false claim that the Comet Ping Pong pizza place in Washington D.C. was at the center of a pedophilia ring linked to the Hillary Clinton campaign. But on Tuesday night, Meredith-owned CBS46 ran a report full of recycled Internet rumors about the restaurant. Reporter Ben Swann cited the WikiLeaks release of hacked emails from Clinton campaign chief John Podesta heavily throughout his segment.  “In all, WikiLeaks dumped around 50,000 email messages, and it was from those emails that the claims that John Podesta may be part of a child sex-trafficking ring come from,” Swann said.  However, moments later he added: “To be clear, not one single email in the Podesta emails discusses child sex trafficking or pedophilia.”  Swann claimed “strangely worded emails” could be “code language used by pedophiles,” and repeat ...

Stephen Colbert Rips WikiLeaks, Alex Jones And Reddit Trolls: 'Grow The F**k Up'
Huffington Post - 2 months
Stephen Colbert has had enough.  The “Late Show” host spent 10 minutes on his Wednesday night program railing against conspiracy theorists for creating the “Pizzagate” hoax that led an armed man to target Washington, D.C., restaurant Comet Ping Pong over the weekend. Colbert also called out President-elect Donald Trump’s national security adviser pick, Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, for posting a link on Twitter to the hoax with the remarks, “u decide.”  “OK, then I decide a guy who spreads this bullshit shouldn’t be in charge of national security,” Colbert said to applause. Later, after detailing how Wikileaks, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and a sub-thread on Reddit involved his former Comedy Central TV show, “The Colbert Report,” in the whole mess, the comedian had only four words.  Watch the segment in the video above. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Pizzagate Spread Largely Thanks To Twitter Bots, YouTube, Alex Jones, And Tech's Aversion To Responsibility
Yahoo News - 2 months
By now, everyone’s probably familiar with the ridiculous conspiracy theory called Pizzagate. Far-right conspiracy theorists believed they’d found a Scooby-Doo like collection of evidence pointing to a Washington DC pizza restaurant, Comet Ping Pong, being a cover for a child sex trafficking ring being run by Hillary Clinton and her campaign manager, John Podesta. The Washington Post has an in-depth analysis on how Pizzagate went from paranoid theory to actual threat, and there are a few passages, in particular, that stand out for how it propagated.

HUFFPOST HILL - What It's Like To Be 16 And Retweeted By The President-Elect
Huffington Post - 3 months
Nancy Pelosi has led House Democrats so long she remembers when Virginia Foxx was the craziest member of the opposition. Senate Republicans are looking to sync better with Donald Trump, so OF COURSE they’re begging an octogenarian Mormon from Utah to stay in the upper chamber. And Donald Trump’s administration will contain an amount of Goldman Sachs employees and other Wall Street veterans typically found only in Alex Jones’ “Da Vinci Code” fan fiction and Dalton parent-teacher conference day.

Yahoo News - 3 months
Happy Turkey Day everyone, and welcome to the worst Thanksgiving of your life. Beloved KKK-darling Donald Trump has been officially elected president of the United States of America, promising to deport millions of undocumented immigrants, put law-abiding Muslims on a registry and destroy our enemies at Hamilton .

Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones Says Donald Trump Called To Thank Him After The Election
Huffington Post - 3 months
President-elect Donald Trump called Alex Jones, the prominent conservative radio host and conspiracy theorist, to thank him and his followers for their support, Jones said in a video posted Friday. “Listen, Alex, I just talked to the kings and queens of the world, world leaders, you name it,” Jones recalled Trump saying. “But it doesn’t matter, I wanted to talk to you, to thank your audience, and I’ll be on the next few weeks to thank them.” Jones has long been on the fringes of the conservative movement, using his radio show and his website, InfoWars.com, to propagate widely debunked or baseless conspiracy theories ― such as the notion that the Clintons are murderers or that mass shootings in recent years were permitted by the government as excuses to strip away Americans’ rights. But he was also among Trump’s most ardent media allies throughout the president-elect’s often-volatile and controversial campaign. In the video, Jones railed against mainstream news outlets, calli ...

White Supremacist Already Vetting 2020 Candidates
Huffington Post - 3 months
Read The Political Garbage Chute for more daily fake news. FORD BEACH, FLORIDA -- Bill Ricci describes himself as a "white nationalist" and a "race realist." He admits that many others who do not share his views have referred to him more simply as a white supremacist. Ricci says, however, that it's not just the different races he's pragmatic about. "I know Donald Trump probably ain't gonna win," Ricci told our reporter, "and that sure does take the wind out of my white sheets." As sad as Ricci is about Trump's likely impending electoral doom, he says he's choosing to remain positive and "focus on the beautiful, bright white future" Trump has inspired within the white nationalist movement. "Before Trump came along," Mr. Ricci said, "Republicans worked for our votes, but they did in much subtler ways. It kinda makes you feel like maybe your particularly bleached world view isn't all that welcome when you can't be loud and proud about your sincerely held belief that your sk ...

I Have to Be Able To Tell My Children I Stood Against Trump
Huffington Post - 4 months
This post originally appeared on fortheloveofwineandcoffee.com One day, years from now, the horror of the 2016 presidential election will appear much more horrible to future generations. I believe the years will progress our country into a more inclusive, diverse and enlightened one. I don't believe history will be kind to Mr. Trump's candidacy and his legacy will be an ugly blemish on the face of modern democracy. I believe after our children learn of the atrocities committed by Trump and the carnage left behind by his vile campaign, they'll then look to us--as survivors of the 2016 election--and want to know how we felt. More than that, what did we do about it? When he questioned the sitting President of the United States' birthplace for no conceivable reason, was the stench of prejudice apparent? When Trump mocked a disabled reporter, did we defend the differently abled? When Trump planned to register an entire religious group, did we not see the historical parallels? ...

Texas elections official says ‘human error’ likely behind ballot confusion

Early voting has started in many states, and some conservative websites are already trafficking in conspiracy theories that the election is being decided unfairly. On Tuesday, the Drudge Report promoted a story from conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ Info Wars website, which had posted a summary of Facebook posts written by two different women in Texas. One woman, Lisa Houlette of Canyon, Texas, wrote on Facebook that she thought she had voted for Donald Trump, only to see on the summary page before she cast her ballot that Democrat Hillary Clinton’s name was checked.

Alex Jones Says Hillary Clinton And Obama Are Real Demons
Huffington Post - 4 months
Radio host and Donald Trump supporter Alex Jones doesn’t need to tell Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama to go to Hell. He believes they already reside there. On Monday, Jones, host of his eponymous show on the Genesis Communications Network, said the two were literally the devil, Media Matters reports. He called Clinton a “psychopathic demon.” “I’m sure of that, and people around her say she’s so dark now, and so evil, and so possessed that they are having nightmares, they’re freaking out,” Jones ranted (watch above). He claimed that both Clinton and Obama smell of evil and sulfur, attracting flies when no one else does. Something smells, all right. Jones is a “crackpot” right-wing conspiracy theorist with millions of followers. He believes the government had a hand in 9/11 and has said the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was “completely fake with actors.” But not everyone is skeptical of Jones. Donald Trump has praised the radio host, dec ...
