How Overeager Trumpsters Facilitated Democrat Voter Fraud

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Bloggers need to be cognizant of a few basic laws of journalism. One is that just because you really, really want it to be true doesn’t mean it’s true. When a lefty trolled Trumpsters by claiming to be a mailman who destroys Trump ballots, the proprietors of cartoonishly pro-Trump websites Gateway Pundit and Drudge Report broke their teeth by biting the bait.

At least Hoft got himself some traffic with this breathless headline:

POSTAL WORKER Brags Online About Destroying Trump Ballots

Drudge eagerly jumped aboard:

Not even the most cursory attempt was made to determine whether the troll was on the level. He duped Hoft by tweeting this:

Wishful thinking on the part of notoriously gullible and conspiracy-minded Trumpsters was the only reason to believe that raandy, whose Twitter profile gives his location as California, is actually a postal worker in Columbus who risks federal prison by opening up absentee ballots so that he can destroy votes for Trump. Now he is having a good laugh:

Actually this is not so funny, because election fraud is a real problem, even if nowhere near the problem Trump has been pretending in an exceedingly irresponsible attempt to proactively excuse his drubbing next month.

As RedState notes,

Now thanks to Jim Hoft crying wolf, the left has another talking point to use when arguing that conservatives are only making it up.

This will serve to facilitate further voter fraud. Thanks Jim and Matt!

It will also serve to shovel more dirt on the early grave of the pro-Trump media, which has repeatedly proven that being more biased, sloppy, dishonest, and irresponsible than the mainstream media is not an effective strategy for replacing it.
