Jim Hoft's Latest Ugly Lie: Says Video Advocating Peaceful Protest "Threatens Violence and Destruction"

Vimeo In Jim Hoft's latest appallingly stupid and dishonest post, he flat-out lies about the video above: Latest #Ferguson Video Threatens More Violence & Destruction | the Gateway Pundit. Hoft picks out a photo to accompany the video showing tear gas canisters going off, but the image is not from the video,...

Fox News: Referring to Michael Brown as an "Unarmed Teenager" Is Misleading

Media Matters The right wing incitement coming out of Fox News is utterly relentless. Today's case in point, this morning's episode of the talk show for complete idiots, Fox & Friends, in which the empty-headed Steve Doocy asks Fox contributor Linda Chavez if it's "misleading" to refer to Michael Brown as...

More Video of STL County Officer Dan Page: "Police Hire Blacks Because They're Eager to Kill White People"

YouTube Here's video of Dan Page, the St. Louis County Police officer who was put on administrative leave after his bizarre sovereign citizen views and outright racism became public, spewing all kinds of End Times conspiracy theories. An especially interesting part begins at about 27:00, when Page says the military and...

Why It's Pointless to Reach Out to Gateway Pundit for Comment on His Bogus Claims

I've had several people approach me on Twitter this week (all right wingers) and angrily tell me I should have asked Jim Hoft for comment on why he deliberately altered that now-infamous CT scan image to conceal its source. So just for the record, I'm going to point out that I...

Animated GIF Graphically Demonstrates Jim Hoft's Deliberate "Fractured Eye Socket" Deception

Several readers suggested that I make Jim Hoft's doctored CT scan image into an animated GIF, alternating with the unedited original stock image (which, by the way, can also be seen in this PDF from 2007 at the University of Texas). A "throbbing CT scan," if you will, to demonstrate...

CNN's Brian Stelter Rips Fox News for Hyping Jim Hoft's "Fractured Eye Socket" Hoax

YouTube CNN host Brian Stelter calls out Fox News for relying on Jim Hoft's deliberately deceptive blog post about Darren Wilson's "orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket." Stelter calls this "Red News/Blue News," but it's really not a partisan divide -- it's the difference between making stuff up to incite hatred...

Obama Sending White House Aides to Michael Brown's Funeral, Jim Hoft Says "All Black Delegation"

The President is sending three White House officials to the funeral service of Michael Brown in St. Louis on Monday: Leading the group for Monday's service will be the chairman of the My Brother's Keeper Task Force, Broderick Johnson. My Brother's Keeper is an Obama initiative that aims to empower...

"Josie" Story of Brown Shooting Lifted From Fake Facebook Page - See Updated Timeline Below

I posted this in the comments on another thread, but I think it needs repeating. The anonymous caller "Josie", who supposedly gave Officer Wilson's version of the story was very obviously just repeating a Facebook post. A Facebook post that even breitbart.com admits is a Hoax. Compare for yourself. #CNN...

Video: All Four Eyewitness Accounts of the Michael Brown Shooting

YouTube Someone has posted a video at YouTube compiling all four eyewitness accounts of the shooting of Michael Brown, and as I've been saying all week, they're amazingly consistent. They tell a story that's very damning to officer Darren Wilson.

Dumbest Man on the Internet Forgets to Delete the Unedited Version of the Image He Edited

DERPFollowing up once again on our posts about Jim Hoft and his now-debunked "report" (I'm using quotes because calling anything Hoft does a "report" is a wild exaggeration) that officer Darren Wilson suffered an "orbital blowout fracture of the eye socket," we showed yesterday that Hoft or someone at his...

Who's Behind the GoFundMe Crowd-Funding Pages for Darren Wilson?

In the days since Darren Wilson was named as the officer involved in the shooting of an unarmed Mike Brown, someone established a GoFundMe for raising funds for Wilson's likely defense fund. Other folks have already shown their true intentions in the hate filled comments supporting Wilson. People donated $25, $50,...

CNN Held Talks About Joint Venture With Glenn Beck's The Blaze

If there is anyone left who doesn't believe CNN is circling the bowl, The Wall Street Journal has burst your bubble this evening. CNN executives have held talks in recent weeks with representatives from Glenn Beck's The Blaze, a 24-hour news and entertainment network, about a potential joint venture to...

Jim Hoft's Incredible Dishonesty and Ineptitude, Revisited

DERPFollowing up once again on our posts about Jim Hoft and his now-debunked "report" (I'm using quotes because calling anything Hoft does a "report" is a wild exaggeration) that officer Darren Wilson suffered an "orbital blowout fracture of the eye socket," we showed yesterday that Hoft or someone at his...

The Michael Brown Shooting Incident Report Is Ridiculous

The ACLU of Missouri filed a lawsuit to get Michael Brown's shooting incident report released, and well... just read it for yourself. It won't take long. Just a few seconds. Because there's almost no information in it. http://www.scribd.com/doc/237504285/CARE-Incident-Report UPDATE...Show More Summary

Exposing Gateway Pundit's Dishonesty: He Altered a CT Scan Image to Trick His Readers

Here's another follow-up to my article about Jim Hoft's dishonest tactics in promoting his bogus claim that officer Darren Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket in a purported struggle with teenager Michael Brown. As I pointed out in the earlier piece, Hoft posted a stock image of a CT scan of...

CNN Reports #Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson DID NOT Have a Fractured Eye Socket

For the past couple of days, I've been pointing out the numerous problems in Jim Hoft's anonymously sourced claim that Ferguson PD officer Darren Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket in a purported struggle with teenager Michael Brown, and now CNN is reporting that sources close to the investigation have...

Ann Coulter Takes Jim Hoft's Misleading Bait, Says "We Saw X-Ray of Wilson's Fractured Eye Socket"

As I pointed out on Tuesday in this article, far right blogger Jim Hoft apparently deliberately tried to mislead his readers into believing that a random example image of a CT scan he posted was actually an image of Darren Wilson's purportedly fractured eye socket. Hoft erased the words "UNIV...

If Darren Wilson Was "Savagely Beaten," Why Did Neighbors See Him Mowing His Lawn Just a Few Days Later?

Officer Darren Wilson, minutes after supposedly being "savagely beaten"If you've been following the ever-worsening accounts of the purported struggle between unarmed teenager Michael Brown and Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, you've seen the descriptions mutate from "minor injuries" for which Wilson was treated and released to "a savage beating" that...

Did Michael Brown's Friend Dorian Johnson "Recant" His Story? No, He Did Not

A rumor began circulating through the third-string wingnut blogs two days ago that Michael Brown's friend Dorian Johnson, who was with Brown when he was gunned down by officer Darren Wilson, had "recanted" his account of the events and admitted Brown did attack Wilson in his police car. Before this bogus...
