CNN gives Democratic operative platform to spread outright lies
(INTELLIHUB) — In the very definition of fake news, CNN recently aired laughably false comments by UC Berkeley professor and former Democratic Secretary of Labor Robert Reich about the violent riots on the liberal campus.
Reich, already a widely known anti-Trump operative, went straight down the rabbit hole of absurdity by claiming that “right-wingers” were actually behind the riots that specifically targeted Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
“I was there for part of last night and I know what I saw and those people were not Berkeley students,” Reich said. “Those people were outside agitators. I have never seen them before.”
Reich continued, “There’s rumors that they actually were right-wingers. They were a part of a kind of group that was organized and ready to create the kind of tumult and danger you saw that forced the police to cancel the event.”
Lemon, barely able to contain himself and of course doing nothing to stop these purposefull lies, then ludicrously asked if the riots were a strategy by Milo and or right-wingers.
Reich’s response was classic corporate media disinformation.
“I wouldn’t bet against it,” Reich responded. “I saw these people. They all looked very, almost paramilitary. They were not from the campus. I don’t want to say factually, but I’ve heard there was some relationship here between these people and the right-wing movement that is affiliated with Breitbart News.”
In response to this nonsense, Paul Joseph Watson put it best by writing, “Reich’s absurd comments shouldn’t even be dignified with a rebuttal, suffice to say that the same black-clad Antifa leftists have been rioting their way through cities up and down the country for weeks, including at Donald Trump’s inauguration in Washington DC. Was that all a secret right-wing plot too?”
As we have repeatedly stated, this is truly an information war for the very fabric of the country and Reich is simply doing his job of continuing the establishment side disinformation operation.
