Your source to mainline the mayhem in the Mainstream media.
This past weekend, the new documentary by Dinesh D’Souza called “2000 Mules,” about some of the chicanery during the 2020 election, was released. The Associated Press thought it had the ultimate slam-dunk fact-checking the film, but I go over how it resorted to tricks and diversionary thought to build up its non-case.
Then I cover how Will Saletan from The Bulwork was displaying how the True Conservatives™ at the site were bothered that a conservative issue like repealing abortion would help the Democrats. (Poor Will missed the CNN poll showing an overall benefit for the GOP come November.)
Meanwhile, over at CNN, the distemper crowd was mistakenly claiming everyone was bracing for violence from the far-right, all while the press recalibrated actual violence seen from the left. Then I perform an autopsy on a failed Daniel Dale fact-check, and we wrap up with a deeply curious case of plagiarism in publishing.
So, crack one open and savor some more media mockery.
- The documentary 2000 Mules debuted this weekend.
- The Associated Press attempted a fact-free fact-check of the movie.
- At The Bulwark, they are concerned Republicans might get conservative items passed.
- Jim Sciutto tries to insist the far-right will cause violence in support of repealing Roe v. Wade.
- Unfortunately, the far-left incited violence, requiring reframing by the journalists.
- Daniel Dale displays all the games played by fact-checkers.
- An author had her book pulled for plagiarism, then her essay about the episode was pulled – for plagiarism.
