The mainstream media has no qualms with lying through their teeth.
But the American people are starting to distrust Big Media outlets more everyday.
And now The New York Times is scrambling after getting caught in this giant lie about a police officer.
The Washington Post reported last Monday that Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes after suffering two strokes the day after serving at the Capitol for the January 6 riot, according to the Washington, D.C. medical examiner.
“Capitol Police officer Brian D. Sicknick suffered two strokes and died of natural causes a day after he confronted rioters at the Jan. 6 insurrection, the District’s chief medical examiner has ruled,” said the medical examiner.
In the blink of an eye, all of the lies the media levied against Trump supporters unraveled, like murdering Sicknick by causing an allergic reaction from assaulting him with bear spray or bashing his skull in with a fire extinguisher.
“In an interview with The Washington Post, Francisco J. Diaz, the medical examiner, said the autopsy found no evidence the 42-year-old officer suffered an allergic reaction to chemical irritants, which Diaz said would have caused Sicknick’s throat to quickly seize. Diaz also said there was no evidence of internal or external injuries,” The Post reported.
But in the wake of Sicknick’s death, The New York Times falsely claimed that he was mobbed by Trump supporters who beat him to death with a fire extinguisher.
“Mr. Sicknick, 42, an officer for the Capitol Police, died on Thursday from brain injuries he sustained after Trump loyalists who overtook the complex struck him in the head with a fire extinguisher, according to two law enforcement officials,” The New York Times claimed.
What makes this lie even more egregious is that Sicknick’s family members tried to shoot down the original reports that he was murdered.
But The Times didn’t care.
And it didn’t stop Democrats from using the false report in their article of impeachment against Donald Trump.
The lie was too useful as a political gambit to sully Donald Trump and the GOP for the 2022 midterms.
The Leftist elites in the media and politics are more concerned with advancing their radical agenda than telling the truth.
