The NYT’s oops, Stacey Abrams’ election-denial flip-flop and more
Diary of disturbing disinformation and dangerous delusions
“There [has] been a spike in homicides; that has nothing to do with Democratic policies.”
— MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross, Saturday
We say: Oh, no — Democratic policies (defunding police, tarring them as racist, refusing to put criminals behind bars, etc.) couldn’t possibly have led to the nationwide spike in homicides. Wow! Talk about shirking responsibility!
Spot the difference #1:
We say: Oops. On Monday, the Times painted allegations that a software company kept data on US poll workers in China as a “conspiracy theory” based on “threadbare evidence, or none at all.” Yet the very next day, it noted that LA’s far-left DA, George Gascón, arrested the firm’s top executive, Eugene Yu — noting that his probe “found data stored in China.”
We say: NBC reporter Ben Collins echoes fears on the left that under Elon Musk Twitter, as a private company, will be able to publish any views or assertions it wants. Gee: The left might lose its monopoly over speech. (Cue the violins.)
Spot the difference #2:
“Despite the final tally . . . we won.”
— Stacey Abrams, April 3, 2019
— vs. —
“I have never been unclear . . . that I did not win the race.”
— Abrams, Monday
We say: Dem darling Stacey Abrams is now denying she claimed victory in Georgia’s 2018 race for governor vs. Brian Kemp (R). Sure she denies it: She’s running for gov again, Democrats are highlighting “attacks” on democracy (like hers) and a judge just nixed her remaining claims that the 2018 election was unfair. Clearly, no one should’ve taken her seriously in the first place.
“I’ve been humbled.”
— TV host Chris Cuomo, Monday
We say: Like his brother, disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Chris Cuomo has never acknowledged any wrongdoing. Not his secretly advising Andrew politically while simultaneously acting as a “journalist” on CNN. Nor his bid to smear the 11 women who made sexual-harassment allegations against the then-governor. Nor even his ginormous conflict of interest in promoting Andrew on CNN. Chris Cuomo hasn’t been humbled; he’s just lying again.
