A journalist has been fired for widely spreading fake news and hate regarding the Covington high school “incident” in Washington. The Wrap reports:
Digital company INE Entertainment has fired a journalist who publicly wished for the death of several Covington Catholic High School students and their parents in a pair of tweets over the weekend. Aside from his job as a post-production supervisor at INE, Erik Abriss is a contributor to New York Media’s pop culture site Vulture.
“We were surprised and upset to see the inflammatory and offensive rhetoric used on Erik Abriss’ Twitter account this weekend. He worked with the company in our post-production department and never as a writer,” the company said in a statement to TheWrap on Monday.
“While we appreciated his work, it is clear that he is no longer aligned with our company’s core values of respect and tolerance. Therefore, as of January 21, 2019, we have severed ties with Abriss.”
Passions ran high on social media Saturday after video emerged of several students from Covington, many of whom were wearing “Make America Great Again” hats, surrounding a Native American elder who was in Washington, D.C. for the Indigenous Peoples’ March. Many viewers believed the teens were attempting to taunt the elder, Nathan Phillips.
This will hopefully the beginning of a mass punishment against those who purposefully spread fake news and called for harm to come to those boys. Civil suits against them would be the next step.
Firing some low level twit who works for the “Fake News” is not enough. I was happy to see that the lawsuits have already started against some news organizations and their “reporters”. A lot of those fine young people who were maligned in the media, are about to go to college for free on the MSLSD, CBS, ABC, CNN, dime.
Those reporters tout their “Freedom of the Press” all the time, but it doesn’t count when you use slander and libel and downright lies to get the story out. Just like the proverbial “Shouting ‘Fire’ is a crowded theater”, there are limits you need to stay away from.
Swamp News, MSM=Fake News, Fox News.The Pravda Racists Divisive Commie news and their propaganda HATE machine at full throttle! They are destroying the country within! Prosecute these deep state traitors now, Pres Trump!
The Washington Post Newspaper as to its circulation in the Washington Metropolitan area that includes parts of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and all of the District of Columbia is in affectionately referred to as “Provda West”.
It is really a shame that people have to hate Kids that are just doing what they have every right to do. We all have the right under the 1st Amendment the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
All LEFTIST/COMMUNISTS are out for blood-the more innocent the blood, the better
The media, including True, needs to STOP saying that the students “surrounded” Phillips, it WAS Phillips who walked right up to and put his drum in the face of the student. The students didn’t move, HE did.
