Fox News host Laura Ingraham complained on Feb. 21 how the media is covering alleged domestic terrorist Coast Guard lieutenant Christopher Hasson — who police said was stockpiling weapons and preparing a list of victims, including Democratic lawmakers, and journalists at CNN and MSNBC — instead of gay black actor Jussie Smollett who allegedly faked an attack on himself.
Ingraham created a long conspiracy theory about how Smollett distracted from Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s blackface/KKK photo scandal and Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax’s sexual assault accusations, but then how Hasson distracted from Smollett:
And now the Smollett anti-Trump drama has blown up, the media has jumped on the story of that whack-job Coast Guard lieutenant who wanted to murder Democrat politicians…This is so predictable, it’s almost boring.
Ingraham falsely claimed that the media “has no time” when conservatives are “truly victimized,” such as the Congressional baseball shooting (which received hours upon hours of coverage).
