When you’re an outspoken, unapologetic Republican, expect the media to come after you with guns a’blazin’ no matter how thin the “evidence” is against you.
Just ask President Donald Trump. Or Las Vegas City Councilwoman Michele Fiore.
Exhibit #1: Headline in today’s Las Vegas Review-Journal…
“Fiore tied to report alleging domestic terrorism by Washington lawmaker”
Sounds serious, right? But when you read the actual story beyond the headline you learn…
- That “Fiore is not explicitly named in any wrongdoing.”
- That the leaders of the standoff incident weren’t even sure if “Fiore supported their method of protest.”
- That Fiore “worked with federal agents to de-escalate tensions.”
The problem here, of course, is that too many people will read the “clickbait” headline and never get to the parts of the story that completely counter it.
And then there’s this…
While the article eventually demonstrates that the headline accusation that Fiore is a “domestic terrorist” is bull, it concludes by noting that “others were not impressed” with her efforts to bring a resolution to the standoff.
It quotes Annette Magnus, executive director of Battle Born Progress, as saying: “She’s not a hero.”
But Magnus is a Fiore Derangement Syndrome sufferer. She’s the Maxine Waters of Nevada who’s been gunning for Fiore since Fiore’s days as an Assemblywoman in the Nevada Legislature. So consider the source.
And in response to the “report,” a deranged, self-described “Grass rooted, tree hugging, dirt worshipper!” tweeted this outright lie yesterday…
“Now, can we get @VoteFiore out of office? She is considered a domestic terrorist.”
No she’s not. Nevertheless, Magnus’ deranged Battle Born Progress replied: “Our thoughts exactly.”
