Whenever a headline screams "hate crime" I'm inclined to look at the initial report with some amount of skepticism until the facts come out. It certainly could have happened as reported - I'm sure there are racist goons around who would do that but fake hate crimes are so common I take a wait and see....

So much wrong with this. I'd wager anyone it's at least half fake. Any takers?

I wouldn't believe one word TMZ had to say. Then when they say the name Trump it's almost for sure BS.

Anti black anti gay.. put a rope around his neck.. and screamed "This is MAGA country" LOL Way too much BS. Idiots should make it a little believable.

LOL That was fast.

I don't see how it's not a crime to make all that up. I bet the stations that ran the BS story don't run a story about how it was all a lie.

Mark my words that the first Trump supporter to make up a story even half that bad gets caught and you will see 5x the media screaming how he should be locked up for making false statements.

I just googled his name. 99% is acting like it really happened as reported. Even if it turns out to be a huge lie no one will care.

And I sure hope if I ever get attacked I get 12 investigators AND the FBI working my case within 16 hours!

News report comes out about far left idiot: right totally believes it and shares. Left is skeptical and claims fake news.

News report comes out about far right idiot: left totally believes it and shares. Right is skeptical and claims fake news.

It doesn't really matter what's true anymore. Going viral is the key. It's easier to publish something that will go viral without truth. Because, as a media consumer, it's easier to believe something that we already think is true.

How in the h3ll do we know what to believe anymore?

Except for the fact that the MSM hardly ever reports on the far left idiot story, but wears out a far right idiot story. I still know what to believe.

And once again some people want to believe that both sides lie equally

The right would need a right media outlet before they could even attempt to lie or post fake news like the left.

My media feeds are constantly showcasing idiots from both sides, but I guess If you get your news from sources with similar ideals I could see how the numbers could be skewed one way or the other.

And this is exactly my point "I still know what to believe"...both sides think they know what to believe. And, 9/10 times they are going to believe what they already thought is true.


There was a thread on here the other day and OP posted some "facts" that turned out to not be true and OP admittedly had doubts but didn't fact check. And below that original post there are quite a few people that just assume it is true.

It's to the point now you shouldn't believe anything until you can verify.

Certainly don't have a knee jerk reaction or opinion until all three sides of the story comes out.

I'm sure both sides think that the "other" side lies more frequently. Hence, the preconceived notions I mentioned earlier.

Yeah
I agree
I didn't have time to reply to your screenshot
I'm not saying the guy could have fabricated him getting beat up
He has a broken rib but that means nothing
His story does seem outlandish and fabricated

But you came with #fakenews saying that CPD closed the case and wrote it off as being fake when they didn't and they are still investigating
That's all I wanted to point out

But yeah just because the guy doesn't like our POTUS doesn't mean he should get beat up.

Who was that politician in Minnesota or Wisconsin that got beat up and rib broken because how he voted on a bill?

I don't believe all the claims made by the victim at all. That sight just said it was a hoax and I was trying to find what their sources were.
