Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Episode 24 – The Jussie Smollett Hoax Has Multiple Victims Media Won’t Notice. Facebook Listens To Everything and Peanut Butter and Mayo Sandwiches

Jussie Smollett made it up….at least, that’s what the Chicago PD has said. The Empire star was not attacked in a “hate crime.” Rather, he paid two men to fake an attack on him, so he could garner sympathy and, possibly, get a raise. Yet, when the cable media discusses the story, they avoid talking about some of the victims of this gross hoax. Read More

Jussie Smollett Thought His Lie Would Work, Because He Thought Nothing Of Dehumanizing Trump Supporters

Jussie Smollett has been arrested and charged with filing a false police report in connection to an alleged attack against him. As the story has played out, Smollett coordinated and paid (by check!) for two Nigerian men to attack him so he could garner sympathy and increase his TV salary.

[Tony Katz](http://twitter.com/tonykatz) gets to the heart of the matter. Why would Jussie Smollett do this, the MSM asks and laments? Simple: he wanted “Reputation Capital,” and he thought nothing of attacking, demeaning, lying about and dehumanizing Trump supporters to get it.

The real story is that Jussie Smollet, and those who think like him, have so dehmanized the Trump supporter and others who disagree with them that they were willing to accuse them of crimes and let them be found guilty for them when they did nothing wrong. And they did it for cultural advancement – for Reputation Capital – and for a paycheck.

Chicago Reporter Rafer Weigel Explains The Jussie Smollett Case, and the Sorry State Of Journalism In America

Jussie Smollett, the actor and singer, will be facing charges for filing a false police report. The Empire star claimed he was attacked by two men in Chicago screaming about “MAGA country” who placed a noose around his neck. The story fell apart when the two men who were suspected of the attack explained how they were paid by Smollett to stage the attack.

But media across America did not wait for the facts: they declared Smollett was telling the truth and wasted no time attacking Trump supporters. Celebrities and presidential candidates like Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) joined in, going so far as to call it a “lynching.”

Chicago reporters had taken their time with the story, doing the hard work of journalism, and covered the events properly. Tony Katz speaks with Chicago FOX 32 reporter and anchor Rafer Weigel about the Smollett case, and the state of journalism in America.
