    One more time it makes the news, but is wrong. Bet you never see CNN do a correction.

    "Updated at 7:30 p.m.: Chicago PD now tell me via email that "in the initial reports there was no mention of MAGA," but "when detectives followed up with him later in the day, he recalled the offenders making those comments and detectives completed a supplemental report." It would appear that earlier statements by the police were erroneous. I have changed the headline of this article to reflect new information, and await a statement from Smollett himself."

    I wonder if he 'recalled' the attackers making the MAGA comment after he saw on the news that he had said that?

    When the media was running with Smollett's story of white men who were Trump supporters besting him up over his blackness and gayness, they made sure that everybody knew that this was an attack by racist white bigoted homophobes against poor innocent little brown homosexuals like Jussie. Trump was at fault for encouraging this; Trump's people did it.

    Now that we know it's a hoax and the media is covering the story that it's a hoax the racial angle and the gay angle are gone! Now the story is simply some man falsely claimed to have been attacked ---no longer any mention of anti-gay slurs or anti-black slurs; no more mention of white males wearing red MAGA hats.

    Jussie didn't just tell a lie-- he fabricated a *hate crime* so that his political enemies and the enemies of his liberal friends could be falsely accused! Jussie was trying to supply historical evidence for future black activists to say "America is a racist country because black men get jumped on the street by supporters of white nationalists!" He lied so that future LBGT activists could say "see how terrible America is --they're beating up gay people in the streets!"

    so this is really a textbook "false flag" attack isn't it?
    The enemy attacks itself or stages a fake attack just to blame the other side, and score some political points or create a much-needed alliance.

    How much credibility will the next black man catching some gay bashing receive from the media? From MSM I suspect no less than what was given in this case. And it will likely last about as long. And end for the same reason. But that will have no effect on number 3s coverage.

    Here's about 20 other hate crime hoaxes that have occurred since Donald Trump got elected.

    Man! If the media hadn't been so focused on reporting these as false you might think hate crime hoaxes were rare or something! :evil:
