Garbage Hot Take In The New York Times Reveals Much About Some Journalists

(Before It's News)

When the FBI announced they had made an arrest in connection
with threats being made to Jewish Community Centers across the
country, people were shocked to learn it was not a Trump supporter.
It was in fact, an anti-Trump clown who was fired from The
Intercept for fabricating quotes and sources.

Granted, when this news came out, some conservative outlets let

“See how this became a gift for those damned

When people are pointing the finger at you every day for these
things, there very well may be a smug reaction from conservative
pundits. Isn’t that to be expected? It’s certainly not, however,
the defining issue surrounding such stories. It has far more to do
with the media going along with the narrative because so many
reporters are conditioned to go along with accusations put forth by
