There is nothing that sounds dumber than people with no argument attempting to make an argument.

Honestly crap like this is pretty much the norm.

Jussie Smollett is far from an isolated case: Here are 20 hate crime hoaxes in the age of Trump

I have a feeling that he's not getting that raise.

Just a hunch.

I half-heartedly think CNN will hire him...

But as a side note, the satire site "Babylon Bee" had a pretty funny article...

Jussie Smollett Offered Job At CNN After Fabricating News Story Out Of Thin Air

Quote:
While Empire actor Jussie Smollett has been having a tough week so far, there appears to be a silver lining: cable news channel CNN has offered Smollett a job as an investigative reporter and on-air anchor after witnessing his skills at fabricating a story entirely out of thin air.

CNN producers were reportedly impressed throughout the ongoing saga of Smollett's apparent hoax attack on himself. They realized early on the facts didn't add up but were fascinated with how well the actor kept the narrative going. An HR rep quickly reached out to Smollett to see if he'd be interested in taking on a position at the news organization after news broke that the entire thing was probably fabricated.

"Smollett has exactly the kind of skills we look for at our fine organization," said CNN correspondent Brian Stelter. "He picked a narrative, made up all the relevant facts and details, and stuck with his story in spite of glaring holes in the plot. It's hard to find people who understand our core values here at CNN, but Smollett seems to be just the guy for us."
Now...OBVIOUSLY, this is satire...

But Leftwing Snopes?...They actually fact-checked it...

Snopes Fact-Checks The Satirical Babylon Bee … Again

Quote:
The supposed regulator of fake news, Snopes, embarrassed itself on Wednesday when the company dedicated precious resources, employee time, electricity, and bandwidth to literally fact-check the deliberately and openly unapologetic satirical fake news Christian site, Babylon Bee.

This week, Babylon Bee took aim at the Jussie Smollett hate hoax fiasco with an article headlined, "Jussie Smollett Offered Job At CNN After Fabricating News Story Out Of Thin Air."

...Since Babylon Bee bills itself as "Your Trusted Source For Christian News Satire," nobody, except maybe a minority of gullible readers, treated the article as an actual news report. That glaring reality did not stop Snopes from giving it a "False" rating, the equivalent of police arresting an Al Pacino impressionist at a comedy club for identity theft.

Only at the very end of the report did Snopes clarify that Babylon Bee is a satirical news site and never intended for the story to be taken as hard news.

This is not the first time that Snopes wasted resources to give Babylon Bee a "False" rating. In 2018, Snopes flagged the site for an exuberantly over-the-top article about CNN buying a washing machine to "spin the news."

Just another that people capable of intelligent thought, don't consider Snopes a valid resource.

Heard today that the Smollett family is tight with the Kamala Harris family.

Jussie apparently did a documentary about Lynching, and Kamala Harris has been trying to pass anti Lynching and reparations legislation. Hmmmmm

Is this starting to smell

Kamala first said this was a modern-day lynching. Now she's startin' to change her tune a bit.
