What took place at the Capitol on January 6 was undoubtedly a politically motivated riot. As such, it should not be controversial to regard it as a dangerous episode. Any time force or violence is introduced into what ought to be the peaceful resolution of political conflicts, it should be lamented and condemned.
But none of that justifies lying about what happened that day, especially by the news media. Condemning that riot does not allow, let alone require, echoing false claims in order to render the event more menacing and serious than it actually was. There is no circumstance or motive that justifies the dissemination of false claims by journalists. The more consequential the event, the less justified, and more harmful, serial journalistic falsehoods are.
Yet this is exactly what has happened, and continues to happen. And anyone who tries to correct these falsehoods is instantly attacked with the cynical accusation that if you want only truthful reporting about what happened, then you’re trying to “minimize” what happened and are likely an apologist for if not a full-fledged supporter of the protesters themselves.
However, the Dems more than a year after continue to spread misinformation who are not corrected by the mainstream media!
Rep. Troy Nehls (R-Texas) on Thursday produced evidence on Twitter that calls into question USCP Chief J. Thomas Manger’s claim that a Capitol Police officer entered the congressman’s office last November to investigate because the door was “left wide open.”
Nehls posted a video that suggests the Capitol Police are lying because the door always automatically closes when left open.
“This is the exact door @CapitolPolice claims their officer found “wide open” on that Saturday. The door automatically closes. See for yourself,” Nehls tweeted. “How could this door be found wide open?”
We decide to upload the video because Twitter would probably delete the video and label it as misinformation!
