A Clinton Fan MANUFACTURED FAKE News That MSNBC Personalities Spread In Their Attempt to Discredit WikiLeaks Docs

A Clinton Fan MANUFACTURED FAKE News That MSNBC Personalities Spread In Their Attempt to Discredit WikiLeaks Docs 

by Glenn Greenwald

Back in October, when WikiLeaks was releasing emails from the John Podesta archive, Clinton campaign officials and their media spokespeople adopted a strategy of OUTRIGHT LYING TO THE PUBLIC, claiming — WITH NO BASIS WHATSOEVER — that the emails were doctored or fabricated and thus should be ignored.

THAT LIE — and that is what it was : a claim made with knowledge of its falsity or reckless disregard for its truth — was most aggressively amplified by MSNBC personalities such as Joy Ann Reid and Malcolm Nance, The Atlantic’s David Frum, and Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald.

That the Emails in the Wikileaks archive were doctored or faked — and thus should be disregarded — was Classic Fake News, spread not by Macedonian teenagers or Kremlin operatives but BY ESTABLISHED NEWS OUTLETS SUCH AS MSNBC, The Atlantic, and Newsweek.

BY DESIGN, THIS Fake News spread like wildfire all over the internet, hungrily clicked and shared by tens of thousands of people eager to believe it was true.

As a result of this DELIBERATE DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGN, anyone reporting on the contents of the Emails was instantly met with claims that the documents in the archive had been proven fake, WHICH IS NOT the TRUTH and WHICH IS NOT the REALITY !!

From the start, it was obvious THAT IT WAS THIS ACCUSATION FROM CLINTON SUPPORTERS — not the WikiLeaks documents — THAT WAS A COMPLETE FRAUD, perpetrated on the public as deliberate disinformation. With regard to the claim about the Podesta emails, now we know exactly who created it in the first instance: a hard-core Clinton fanatic.

When Nance — MSNBC’s “intelligence analyst” — issued his “Official Warning,” he linked to a tweet that warned : “Please be skeptical of alleged #PodestaEmails. Trumpists are dirtying docs.” That tweet, in turn, linked to a tweet from an anonymous account calling itself “The Omnivore,” which had posted an OBVIOUSLY FAKE TRANSCRIPT purporting to be a Hillary Clinton speech to Goldman Sachs. Even though that fake document was never published by WikiLeaks, that was the entire basis for the MSNBC-inspired claim that some of the WikiLeaks documents were doctored.

But the person who created that forged Goldman Sachs transcript was not a “Trumpist” at all; he was A DEVOTED SUPPORTER OF Hillary Clinton. In the Daily Beast, the person behind the anonymous “The Omnivore” account unmasks himself as “MARCO CHACON,” a self-professed creator of “viral fake news” whose targets were Sanders and Trump supporters (he specialized in blatantly fake anti-Clinton frauds with the goal of tricking her opponents into citing them, so that they would be discredited).

When MARCO CHACON wasn’t posting fabricated news accounts designed to make Clinton’s opponents look bad, his account looked like any other standard pro-Clinton account : numerous negative items about Sanders and then Trump, with links to many Clinton-defending articles.
