Title: Refugee Rampage Hoax
Post by: davedan on February 15, 2017, 05:51:09 pm
Turns out a report of refugees in the Bild german newspaper going on a sexual assault rampage was a baseless hoax - http://www.smh.com.au/world/newspaper-report-of-mass-sexual-assault-by-refugees-in-frankfurt-was-baseless-police-say-20170215-gudybw.html (http://www.smh.com.au/world/newspaper-report-of-mass-sexual-assault-by-refugees-in-frankfurt-was-baseless-police-say-20170215-gudybw.html)

Responsible journalism at its best

Of course given the attention span of the intended audience a very late retraction is about as effective as shouting in on the top of M√ľnster Cathedral and expecting it to be heard in Berlin.

Well, what do you know? The Law Faction Right Wing, defenders of peace, order, tradition and morality...see nothing wrong with two-faced lying, deception, and societal manipulation.

How completely surprising. /s

What is wrong with the German media? When they're not covering up real crimes, they're inventing fake ones out of whole cloth!

I'm working on an art project, can I get some help from you? I just want to know where you get that amazingly broad brush you're painting with.

You know, you're right. I would say I was just venting, but that's not an excuse.
