    Ok, while I agree that the left is guilty of this as you are pointing out, DO YOU SERIOUSLY NOT REMEMBER the metric ton of FAKE news scandals that we were treated to every single day of the Obama administration???

    You don't remember Obama sleeping with white dudes for crack? Or Obama going back to bed while allowing the Benghazi debacle??

    How about the four years of the Birther stupidity???

    There are about a thousand more fake stories that we were treated to seemingly on an hourly bases, shall I continue or do you get the point?

    But the notion that 4chan was the source for the memo or any of the information in it is more than just baseless– it’s easily disproved.

    The supposed “proof” for the 4chan genesis theory was a November 1 post on 4chan’s /pol/ board in which an anonymous user claimed he gave Republican “Never Trump” operative Rick Wilson a fake story about Trump and Russian spies.


    That’s certainly vague to begin with, but note the date: November 1. Mother Jones was reporting on the memo as early as October 30. In a tweet, MJ’s David Corn confirmed that the memo published by Buzzfeed was the same one he received… before the supposed trolling.

    More to the point, everything we know about the memo’s source from CNN and The New York Times contradicts the notion that it could possibly be 4chan or Wilson. According to those outlets:

    • The intelligence community knows who the source is, and considers him generally reliable
    • The author of the memo is ex-British intelligence, with extensive Russian contacts
    • The intelligence community also knows his cources and considers them”credible”
    • Some of the memos were circulating as early as the summer of 2016

    Problem is now one of the three men associated with the MI6 spy (Carter something) claims he never met this guy in Prague. Well again, lets get the US State dept to look and find out if what he is saying is true. Its not hard at all to confirm this. If he wasn't in Prague then this story falls apart. If he was, then it has legs.

    To be honest, I don't remember any major news outlet publishing a story about Obama blowing guys for cocaine with a disclaimer of "We don't have any evidence of this. We just thought we'd throw it out there and see what our readers think."

    They did not release without any evidence. They released it based on a reliable source. Those are two very different things.

    Besides, plenty of people believed all the BS about Obama and learned about it on social media and the like.
