“Fake News” Site Threatens Washington Post With Defamation Suit, Demands Retraction

from Zero Hedge:

As the “fake news” narrative grows, and The House quietly passes a bill to “counter Russian propoganda” websites, one alleged ‘fake’ news wesbite – as defined by the farcical PropOrNot organization – has struck back. Naked Capitalism’s Yves Smith has threatened The Washington Post with a defamation suit and demanded a retraction.

As the lawyers like to say, res ipsa loquitur. Please tweet and circulate this letter widely. You will notice that our attorney Jim Moody is a seasoned litigator who has won cases before the Supreme Court. He has considerable experience in First Amendment and defamation actions. Past high profile representations include Westomoreland v. CBS and defending Linda Tripp.

 

I also hope, particularly for those of you who don’t regularly visit Naked Capitalism, that you’ll check out our related pieces that give more color to how the fact the Washington Post was taken for a ride by inept propagandists, particularly our introduction to our spoof PropOrNot.org site, which uses the PropOrNot project as an example of sorely deficient propaganda and shows where it went wrong, or the humor site itself. Be sure not to miss its FAQ.

 

We have another post today that describes how the few things that are verifiable on the PropOrNot site don’t pan out, as in the organization is not simply a group of inept propagandists but also appears to deal solely in fabrications.

 

If the site is flagrantly false with respect to things that can be checked, why pray tell did the Washington Post and its fellow useful idiots in the mainstream media validate and amplify its message? Strong claims demand strong proofs, yet the Post appeared content to give a megaphone to people who make stuff up with abandon. No wonder the members of PropOrNot hide as much as they can about what they are up to; more transparency would expose their work to be a tissue of lies.

    HERE is what the Western “elites” and their bought-and-paid-for MSM DON’T WANT YOU OR ANYONE ELSE TO FIGURE OUT ABOUT WHAT THEY CALL “FAKE” NEWS, OR, HOW IT IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE SO-CALLED “FEDERAL” “RESERVE”:

    It’s NOT “Russian” propaganda: It’s the TRUTH, being put in front of you, by the so-called “alt” (alternative, free speech) media. The REAL PROPAGANDA, from ABCBSNBCNNFOXNEWS is “JEW”-ISH PROPAGANDA. The Western “elite” “Jews” who OWN THE MSM, are calling the (“alt” media) TRUTH ~ “Russian” “propaganda” ~ because it debunks their ENDLESS LIES. I’LL SHOUT IT (AGAIN) FROM THE ROOFTOP: THE ENTIRETY OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION, HAS BEEN COMPLETELY HIJACKED BY SELF-PROCLAIMED (“elite”) “JEWS”! WAKE UP!
