The liberal media is scheming to bury Judge Roy Moore under an avalanche of fake news.
They thought one accusation about Moore was the cherry on top that would finish him for good.
But no one could believe it when the charge was proven false.
The media pressed forward in their scheme to make it seem like Moore had been abandoned by all his major supporters and is clinging to a fringe base.
The Associated Press launched the latest front in this effort when they claimed that former Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon would no longer campaign for Moore.
Their reporter tried to claim Moore was isolated and his flailing campaign was about to crash and burn after losing the backing of his biggest booster.
“The Associated Press’s Tom Beaumont filed this headline that ran on AP wires late Tuesday night: “Where’s Bannon? Moore booster absent in Alabama.”
In the piece, Beaumont argued—incorrectly and with no substantiation whatsoever—that Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon has distanced himself from Judge Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama, since a Washington Post hit piece claimed Moore engaged in sexual misconduct four decades ago. Bannon is the ex-White House Chief Strategist for President Donald Trump, and served as the successful general election campaign CEO for the president.
“Bannon hasn’t yanked his support for Moore, but if he’s standing by him, it’s at a distance,” Beaumont wrote. “Associates say he has no plans to campaign in the state before the Dec. 12 election. Meanwhile, his public statements have gone from glowing endorsements of Moore to broadsides against Democratic contender Doug Jones.”
This was fake news.
Within hours, the Associated Press was forced to retract the hoax story.
Breitbart also reports:
“There are multiple incorrect statements in this paragraph. Beaumont’s claim that Bannon has been distancing himself from Moore is simply inaccurate. Literally, the day after the Washington Post piece, Bannon dispatched this reporter—Breitbart News Washington Political Editor—and two other Breitbart News editors, Aaron Klein and Jeff Poor, to Alabama to report on the race. In addition, he made multiple public statements of support for Moore at events in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and elsewhere and gave on record quotes backing up the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama.
Secondly, the claim that Bannon had “no plans to campaign in the state before the Dec. 12 election” is also demonstrably untrue. Bannon has been, for weeks, working with Moore’s campaign to plan a rally on Dec. 5—a week before the election—in the same barn in which Bannon rallied last time for Moore in Fairhope, Alabama, right before the runoff in which Moore beat appointed incumbent Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL).
That fact was revealed previously, in mid-November, by The Atlantic’s Rosie Gray.
Gray reported that Bannon was “scheduled to appear at a rally organized by Moore’s friend and adviser Dean Young on December 5” on Nov. 14—after the Washington Post sexual misconduct allegations story broke.
In a brief phone conversation with Breitbart News on Tuesday night, Beaumont admitted his story was inaccurate—and he could not explain why he did not Google to find The Atlantic piece that already publicly reported the rally. Beaumont also admitted that unlike Breitbart News, he was not reporting his story from Alabama. This story for Breitbart News, unlike Beaumont’s for the Associated Press, has been reported entirely from Alabama on Tuesday evening.”
The media has turned defeating Roy Moore into a crusade.
Their conduct and shameful win-at-all-costs mentality has led them to run shaky allegations and print obviously fake news.
But Moore appears to have recovered.
Recent polls show him in the lead and he looks to have a strong chance for victory on December 12th.
