MSNBC Anchor Joy Reid Sued for Inciting a Hate Mob Against a Woman

Published

on

UPDATE: A judge ruled against the plaintiff in her lawsuit against Joy Reid. Read the court document here.
 
The judge acknowledged Joy Reid spread a hoax, but concluded the hoax wasn’t a statement of fact, but was merely her opinion.
Original story is below….

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid has been sued for targeting a woman for harassment and death threats, The Blast first reported.

Joy Reid is being sued for defamation by a Donald Trump supporter who claims the MSNBC host falsely accused her of hurling racial slurs at a teenager in a photo that went viral earlier this year.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Roslyn La Liberte claims Reid used “her substantial social media presence, fame, and reputation as a hard-hitting journalist” to publish to her followers that La Liberte “screamed abhorrent racial slurs” at a 14-year-old boy.

Cernovich has obtained the case filings.

You may red the complaint here:

The case number is 1:18-cv-05398 and was filed in the Eastern District of New York.

These are the types of messages Joy Reid’s fans send, according to official court filings:

a. “YOU ARE A DISGRACE. I WISH YOUR CHILDREN WERE RIPPED FROM YOU SO YOU COULD UNDERSTAND THE PAIN. . . . You are a dirty white woman b***h.”

b. “Dear racist b***h! It seems like your old poor evil soul never left the Hitler era . . . What a waste, what an embarrassment, what a disgrace of the human kind to have people like you in this world.”

c. “You’re the kind of White Trash that should be dragged into the Town Square & flogged. Your tongue should be cut out. LEAVE THIS COUNTRY – you are an ABSOLUTE DISGRACE!!”

d. “I’m glad everyone in the entire world knows what a racist piece of s**t you are f**k you a*****e.”

e. “Want Out? Your life is probably becoming a living hell and you don’t know how to handle it. I can offer a way out.”

f. “You’re a worthless human being. Go kill yourself.”

g. “The best way to make America great again is to tar and feather sluts like you and ride them out of the country on a rail!”

h. “Racist c**t! Who the f**k do you think you [a]re? You’re sick and twisted c**t & you’ll end up in hell after you die.”

i. “Ur a disgusting human being and if it wasn’t for ur voicemail being full u would hear the best of me. U know what would make America great again is if racist a** b***hes like u went the f**k back to Europe where u came from get educated learn ur history know where u white pple came from.. you murdered and slaughtered pple from their land took their homes and families. This world will be a better place I will remember ur face if I ever see u I will spit in ur face c**t”

Will the media report about this harassment mob formed by someone on their side?

Unlikely.

I wrote about Joy Reid and her behavior in my latest book, Hoaxed.

Is “Kung Flu” the latest Media Hoax?

Published

on

Several White House reporters confronted Trump regarding his decision to call the coronavirus (or COVID-19) the China Virus.  One reporter asked him about a White House administration official who is alleged to have called the coronavirus Kung Flu.

When the reporter was asked the name of the official, the reporter said she didn’t know.

The original claim regarding Kung Flu comes from CBS reporter Weijia Jiang. On March 17th, she Tweeted:

This morning a White House official referred to #Coronavirus as the “Kung-Flu” to my face. Makes me wonder what they’re calling it behind my back.

Ms. Jiang has not identified the official.

One reason could be because this official does not even exist.

Under American defamation law, you can lie all you like.

You can’t lie about a person by name.

If no White House official called the coronavirus Kung Flu, or if there is some important context missing, then Jiang could be sued.

You can watch the Kung Flu exchange in this video here:

The Stafford Act Text Message Announcing an Emergency Quarantine is a Hoax

Published

on

By now you or someone you know has received a hoax text announcing martial law. With some minor variations, the texts all read the same:

  • In 48 to 72 hours the president will evoke what is called the Stafford act. Just got off the phone with some of my military friends in DC who just got out of a two hour briefing. The president will order a two week mandatory quarantine for the nation. Stock up on whatever you guys need to make sure you have a two week supply of everything. Please forward.

 

The National Security Council issued a rare public statement warning the public that the Stafford act text was a hoax.

How can you tell the Stafford Act Text is a Hoax?

Even if you refuse to accept the NSC’s word on the matter, the text message has some telltale signs of a hoax.

First, the text promises secret insider knowledge. “Just got off the phone with some of my military friends in DC who just got out of a two hour briefing.” This is a vague enough proclamation that it sounds plausible.

Second, no specifics of these friends are given. Who are these friends? Why did they call this specific person?

Third, the hoaxers ask you to spread the message. Why would anyone acting in good faith want to incite a panic?

If an emergency quarantine were able to be declared, the plan would be Top Secret. No one’s friends would just get out of a briefing and start alerting people. THEY WOULD GO TO PRISON FOR LEAKING CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.

If such an emergency plan were in the works and higher command wanted the story to get out, they’d leak it to a credible outlet. Not share chain-letter style text messages.

There’s also tradecraft involved in sharing classified information.

None of the telltale signs (and no I won’t share how to leak classified secrets here) were present in that alert.

UPDATE: Other outlets are now reporting that the Stafford Act text is a foreign disinformation campaign:

The Trump administration is alleging that a foreign disinformation campaign is underway aimed at spreading fear in the country amid the coronavirus pandemic, three U.S. officials said Monday. On Sunday, federal officials began confronting what they said was a deliberate effort by a foreign entity to sow fears of a nationwide quarantine amid the virus outbreak.

Agencies took coordinated action Sunday evening to deny that any such plans were put in place, as they tried to calm a nation already on edge by disruptions to daily life caused by the virus.

How Trump Drafted Google into the War Against Coronavirus

Published

on

Elvis Presley served in the Army after he was drafted, and in American history it was common for celebrities to serve their country during times of national crisis. Noblesse oblige, or the duty the noble and rich owed to society, arouse perhaps out of morality or maybe simple self-preservation. If you’re getting while the getting is good, giving something back goes a long way to avoid class resentment.

Those thoughts were perhaps on Trump’s mind (or more likely his instinct) when he announced that Google was taking massive action to help America fight the coronavirus.

Google at first pushed back at the suggestion that it, a nearly trillion dollar mega-corporation, actually doing something to help the users it profits from.

Why should Google help save lives? Why should Google do anything other than operate as an amoral, blood-sucking corporation that violates user privacy and exploits children?

The media bros were quick to rush to save Google. Poor Google! They were being bullied by the ORANGE MAN BAD.

Google’s media errand boys like Jake Tapper and others were quick to publish stories attacking Trump for suggesting that Google actually do something.

Some like your humble correspondent Mike Cernovich saw right away was Trump was doing.

Trump was drafting Google into the war against coronavirus.

Google, whatever its motivations, answered the draft.

Public pressure must intensify.

The corporations make billions of dollars a day by spying on users.

The least they can do is use that data to find out where coronavirus hot spots are, share that information with the CDC, and get information shared with the sick.
