Breitbart News reported on Thursday that Republican Alabama Gov.
Kay Ivey (R) will be reelected with the help of an army of fake news reporters, including a group of “fake news” media personalities who “are on the payroll” of the RNC, the Washington Examiner reported.
In a video that has been circulating online, former Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and his son, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, said that the media should stop using fake news as a weapon of war and instead “just tell the truth,” according to the Examiner.
They added, “We know that truth is better than lies, that is why we don’t have a fake news media.”
“This is how we get rid of fake News, the fake News media, the dishonest media,” Priebus said.
The “fake News media” that Priebus referred to are the mainstream media, which includes CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, and PBS.
“Fake News” is the word that comes to mind when talking about news outlets that peddle fake news stories and make false claims in order to drive ratings and traffic to their websites.
“In order to stop this fake News Media from hurting the Republican Party, we are going to need your help,” Priebus added in the video.
“Together we can stop the fake news from destroying our country.”
Priebus’s remarks come just days after the RNC announced that it had purchased a $2.3 million research and media firm called Media Matters for America.
The company specializes in producing “fake” and “misleading” news stories that serve as a vehicle for the Republican party to win elections and boost its presidential ambitions.
According to a report from the Daily Caller, the company is “the single largest paid vendor of political advertising in the United States.”
Media Matters has been used by the RNC to create a series of misleading videos that falsely claimed that President Barack Obama had signed a law mandating that people get their birth certificates.
The videos were distributed to millions of viewers during the 2016 election.
Media Matters also reportedly paid a “fake story” story writer, Matt Drudge, $3 million to make false and misleading videos and write articles that falsely asserted that Hillary Clinton had donated more money to the Democratic National Committee than President Donald Trump had.
In 2016, Drudge helped to launch the infamous “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory.
In the “fake Pizzagate video,” a reporter claims to have obtained the email address of a former employee of Comet Ping Pong, a restaurant in Washington, DC, that allegedly hosted a child sex trafficking ring.
In addition to the fake Pizzaballs video, the “PizzaGate” conspiracy video also included a video in which a man claiming to be the owner of the restaurant claimed that a child “sex trafficker” had come to the restaurant and “taught him to do something that he’s never done before, and that’s rape.”
The video included footage of a man wearing a mask and holding a gun to the head of a child.
The fake PIZZA video, like many others produced by Media Matters, also included doctored images of Clinton and Trump supporters that falsely accused the two candidates of being child molesters.
Media, like Priebus, has also repeatedly been accused of manipulating social media to promote the bogus “Pussygate” conspiracy theories, which claimed that Democratic Party officials were sexually abusing underage girls at a pizza restaurant in New York.
The Pussygate conspiracy theory was debunked by the police and the police reported that the “girls were not being molested.”
The fake PizzaGate video also falsely claimed the Democratic party was secretly funding a group that was “a secret pedophile ring.”
The “POTUS Pizzeria” conspiracy was also debunked by The Washington Post, which reported that no such group existed.
“The POTUS Pizza is an independent, local business that we do not endorse,” the owner told The Washington Times in a statement.
“We do not support President Donald J. Trump’s candidacy and would not endorse his policies, nor do we endorse his politics.”
The Trump campaign also denied the “Trump Pizzaparty” video’s allegations that it was funded by the DNC.
“No such organization exists,” campaign spokesperson Jason Miller told the Daily Beast.
The Daily Caller also reported that a former member of the Trump campaign’s voter data operation has been indicted on felony charges of making false statements to the FBI.
“I am confident we will prevail against this criminal conspiracy charge,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a news conference in February, according to The Washington Examiner.
The former employee, Richard Meeks, was indicted on charges of lying to the federal government about his role in the voter data operations and was sentenced in April.
Meeks was arrested after he made a statement to the police that he had helped “create the POTUS Pizza conspiracy theory,” the
