The New York Times 2018 podcast Caliphate gained traction after it featured Shehroze Chaudhry, a Canadian who claimed to take part in Islamic State executions among other things. The 12-part podcast won a Pulitzer Prize. Now it has all fallen apart after Canadian and American intelligence officials determined Chaudhry, who used the name Abu Huzayfah, lied about everything. The Times admitted massive failure on their part from the top of the publication.

A black man who is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Charlottesville, Virginia was recently stopped by police for fitting the description of a burglary suspect. The church then sent a letter to the police department decrying the practice of racial profiling, but RaShall Brackney, the Chief of Police, has pushed back on the accusations.

In September, we covered the story of a George Washington University professor who claimed to be black and resigned after it was revealed she was white. We then covered a nearly identical story about a doctoral student at UW-Madison. Now we bring you the story of Kelly Kean Sharp, who recently resigned from Furman University after it was revealed that she is white, but has been identifying as Chicana. Why does this keep happening?

Before the news cycle (finally) turned to stories about the Tara Reade allegations against Joe Biden and the FBI's apparent shocking malfeasance in entrapping General Mike Flynn, the Washington Post published a story claiming that President Trump ignored Wuhan coronavirus warnings issued throughout January and February in his daily presidential briefing book. The story was picked up and regurgitated by an anti-Trump activist media intent on undermining Trump by any means necessary, including by burying, as WaPo did, clear refutation of their unsubstantiated claim.

*Please scroll to the bottom for an update to this story* Earlier this month, the Trump campaign released a hard-hitting ad criticizing Joe and Hunter Biden's China ties. It's an ad that set the stage for the US-China relationship as *the* major campaign issue in the months to come, thanks in large part to the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak.

There they go again.  The media has completely abrogated any semblance of journalistic integrity since President Trump was elected. Further evidence occurred this week after Trump engaged in some characteristic thinking out loud during a coronavirus briefing; the media rushed to spread as widely as possible their—wildly inaccurate—interpretation of his comments.
