Prolific Fake News Writer Found Dead
You really gain an appreciation for the Left’s spin, when you read certain subjects.
For example, this report of a “fake news” reporter’s sudden death.
As KMOV reported,
A leading purveyor of fake news in the 2016 presidential election has died outside Phoenix at the age of 38.
Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Mark Casey said Tuesday authorities discovered Paul Horner dead in his bed on Sept. 18.
Casey said the Maricopa County medical examiner performed an autopsy which showed there were no signs of foul play. He said Horner had a history of prescription drug abuse and that “evidence at the scene suggested this could be an accidental overdose.”
Horner was known for writing false stories and disseminating internet hoaxes that often went viral on Facebook and hoodwinked thousands of people.
They included a story falsely claiming President Barack Obama was gay and a radical Muslim, and another saying protesters were being paid thousands of dollars to demonstrate at Donald Trump’s campaign rallies.
So Obama isn’t gay? Yeah, right!
Look I know Google has done all it can to protect Obama, don’t we live in different times? Isn’t gay more than acceptable? Regardless, Obama’s propensity for men is well-documented. Even Leftist rag, HuffPo covered the reality of Obama:
A woman who claims to have been a classmate delivered some bizarre claims about President Barack Obama in an interview.
As Right Wing Watch first reported, Mia Marie Pope told right-wing preacher James David Manning that she believes that Obama was not only active within the gay community, but also a heavy cocaine user during his years in Hawaii.
“He always portrayed himself as a foreign student,” Pope said. “Girls were never anything that he ever was interested in … He would get with these older white gay men, and this is how we just pretty much had the impression that that’s how he was procuring his cocaine.”
With respect to paid rally-goers, I don’t need a report of any kind on this issue. I spoke with people directly in St. Louis who told me they were sent to “raise hell”. One guy I met at a TGIFriday’s told me that he didn’t even know why he was in St. Louis (Ferguson shooting), but that he was just told to “pack and get to St. Louis.”
Further, he told me that was his job. I’m not sure if he made thousands, but he certainly wasn’t paying his bills in Chicago with “hundred”.
The article about Horner goes on,
Horner took on greater prominence during the presidential election when false stories were widely shared on social media during the race between Trump and Hillary Clinton.
In an interview with The Washington Post in 2016, Horner said he thought Trump won the White House because of him. Horner said Trump’s supporters didn’t fact-check his stories before posting them.
J.J., Horner’s brother, said Paul considered his work satire and explained that his brother’s unique eye for hoaxes and hypocrisy at a young age later worked as clickbait in the internet world.
“So I think that was a lot of the genius behind a lot of his work was pushing ideas that either people wanted to believe or thought was possible,” J.J. said.
I’m sure Horner fooled a few Conservatives. But he fooled just as many Leftists. Moreover, he got the conversation started about “fake news” that now have the Left reeling. Because sometimes in Horner’s attempt to create fake news, he actually exposed real news.
Still think the death of this 38-year-old man was natural?
I certainly don’t know how he died. Leftists are creative in how they “off” themselves, so who am I to argue. But don’t be surprised to learn one day that Obama contracted the Clinton’s to put a hit out on this young man.
