In the wake of yet another ballyhooed “hate crime” revealed as a hoax–instantaneously embraced by every prominent Democrat, celebrity, and nooze media dullard–a writer for PJmedia.com asks what has to be the easiest question in the world to answer:
“Why does the media keep falling for obvious hoaxes?” (https://pjmedia.com/trending/why-does-the-msm-keep-falling-for-obvious-hoaxes/

Mark Steyn once said, commenting on yet another phony hate crime, “Now they’re mad at us for not hating them enough!” Bullseye, brother.
But the fake nooze media want those stories to be true, so whenever they catch the scent of one, they run with it. And when the lie trips them up, they immediately start hunting for another.
