Why the dishonest left-wing media owes a national apology to the Catholic students who were falsely smeared

Another day, another ‘gaffe’ by the disgusting dishonest “mainstream media” (MSM) which, in the age of POTUS Donald Trump, has completely abandoned any and all semblance of journalistic ethics.

But unlike most previous MSM errors, this one has implications far beyond the fake narrative that was being reported.

Over the weekend several groups gathered in the nation’s capital to take part in various demonstrations, protests, and events. One of those was the March for Life, which was staged by pro-life activists and included a group of young, mostly white male students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky, several of whom were wearing MAGA hats.

As their group visited the Lincoln Memorial, they were descended upon by a noted Native American activist and provocateur, Nathan Phillips, and a small group of fellow Native Americans banging on drums. At one point Phillips walked up to one of the students and beat his drum inches from the student’s face. The student didn’t do anything — didn’t verbally harass Phillips, did not taunt him, did not touch him, and certainly did not provoke him.

But this was a moment of gold for the hysterical anti-POTUS MSM, which, no doubt, Phillips the provocateur knew and understood: White boys from a Catholic school wearing MAGA hats. How easy it would be to go from zero to 100 miles per hour getting viral hits and clicks on social media! And just look at the new damage this story would cause to be done to POTUS Trump’s brand!

Newsweek’s headline was, “MAGA HAT WEARING PUPILS FROM COVINGTON CATHOLIC SCHOOL WHO TAUNTED NATIVE AMERICAN ELDER COULD FACE EXPULSION.”

Via Snopes, The Associated Press wrote, “Students in ‘MAGA’ Hats Mock Native American After Rally.”

The Root reported, “The Next Generation of MAGA Hat-Wearing Bigots Besiege Indigenous Peoples March.”

CNN piled on with, “Teens in Make America Great Again hats mocked a Native American elder at the Lincoln Memorial.”

The MSM needs to be held legally liable for fake news that endangers the lives of young Americans

Only, none of it was true, as multiple pieces of video evidence would later demonstrate. And for the record, it wasn’t just “left-wing” media that wrongly reported what happened; so-called ‘conservative’ media did too, including National Review, which must have been so embarrassed by getting caught up in another MSM fake news cycle the magazine removed its online story.
