Default Four viral claims spread by journalists on twitter in the last week alone that are fa

In typical Orwellian fashion so-called journalists have come to the aid of their Democrat fellow travelers by manufacturing lies against the apostate Donna Brazile and the attempt to discredit to discredit the damaging emails released by Wiki leaks. Clandestine tools like journolist, a secretive list server for Leftist media types to receive their propaganda has given way to far more pervasive tools such as Facebook and Twitter.

Quote:
THERE IS AMPLE talk, particularly of late, about the threats posed by social media to democracy and political discourse. Yet one of the primary ways that democracy is degraded by platforms such as Facebook and Twitter is, for obvious reasons, typically ignored in such discussions: the way they are used by American journalists to endorse factually false claims that quickly spread and become viral, entrenched into narratives, and thus, can never be adequately corrected.
We see this manufacturing of factually false claims directed at President Trump as a constant but it is also been deployed in an effort to discredit a member of the faithful, Donna Brazile who broke the Democrat code of omerta revealing Hillary's primary election rigging. Three factually false claims have been media propagated virally.

Quote:
The Clinton/DNC agreement cited by Brazile only applied to the general election, not the primary.
A simple reading of the agreement reveals this claim to be false.

Quote:
Sanders signed the same agreement with the DNC that Clinton did.
Again, simply reading the agreement with Sanders reveals this claim to be false.

Quote:
Brazile stupidly thought she could unilaterally remove Clinton as the nominee.
Brazile felt pressured by others to come up with a plan B alternative to Hillary after she collapsed on an NYC sidewalk. As a long time senior Democrat operative and campaign director it is ridiculous to claim she was unfamiliar with the process of replacing the nominee.

But why stop with lying to discredit an apostate when you can try to discredit the damaging emails released by Wiki leaks.

Quote:
Evidence has emerged proving that the content of WikiLeaks documents and emails was doctored.
If the objective was to discover the truth then why not release the original emails so everyone could see the tampering? Nope, proof is not needed.

The article goes into much more detail debunking the lies.

Of course no corrections or at best very faint ones will be issued. But thanks to the unscrupulous use of social media they will be repeated as fact.
