Former IRS director Lois Lerner told a federal court last week that she and her family could face death threats and physical violence if her testimony of why tea party groups were targeted under her watch becomes public.
Her life's in danger because wacko right-wing morons whipped up by fake news like this from Western Journal.
I read the article and the spin and slant and wondered what/who in the world Western Journal was.
Then I researched them and their history, starting with the main page "About" and moving on from there. At least they're up front about what they're about - right-wing activism, not journalism:
"The Western Journal is a news company that drives positive cultural change by equipping readers with truth. Every day, WesternJournal.com publishes conservative, libertarian, free market and pro-family writers and broadcasters."
(HINT: If you have to tell someone 'believe me' or that you are the one with the 'truth' you're most likely not telling the truth)
Western Journalism was founded by political consultant Floyd Brown in 2008, who also founded the Political Action Committee Citizens United and served as executive director of the Young America's Foundation.
en.wikipedia.org (citations from the above quote were verified, one from Western Journal itself, one from Newsweek.)
"Western Journalism was founded by political consultant Floyd Brown in 2008, who also founded the Political Action Committee Citizens United and served as executive director of the Young America's Foundation."
Not surprisingly, Boaz posted the garbage here.
She still deserves to pay a steep price for what she did. How about leaving her family alone and putting her in a cell with Floyd Brown for 20 years?
