    Translation: CNN is left wing, and so I like them. Hoft is right wing, and so I don't like him.

    Breaking: CNN Reports #Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson DID NOT Suffer a Fractured Eye Socket

    By Charles Johnson

    For the past couple of days, I’ve been pointing out the numerous problems in Jim Hoft’s anonymously sourced claim that Ferguson PD officer Darren Wilson suffered a fractured eye socket in a purported struggle with teenager Michael Brown, and now CNN is reporting that sources close to the investigation have told them this story is completely false:



    Jim Hoft’s claims made it all the way to Fox News, I should note. Will this finally wake people up to the fact that Hoft is a serial liar?




    As I pointed out in this article, Jim Hoft wrote that his source for the claim about the fractured eye socket was the St. Louis County Prosecutor’s office. I’ve emailed the prosecutor’s office asking them for comment on Hoft’s claim, and will post if I receive a reply.
    There you have it. And what of all those on the right who ran with this as evidence that Brown was rightfully killed as the officer was fighting for his life, all while they were cautioning others to have a wait for all the facts approach?

    Crazy Redress, who wants to do that?

    No seriously...who wants to do that, because it seems almost no one in this freaking country is actually doing that. I've actually largely avoided trying to post in most of these threads thus far because frankly the ZEALOT like nature of people on both sides is frustrating and rather worthless to try and wade through. So few people actually seem to honestly just want to know what happened, they want to know what happened that fits their preconceived notions and agendas and thoughts.

    Much like Trayvon and Zimmerman in the end, I imagine that after all is said and done and all the bull**** and propaganda and protests and police action and all the other crap....the reality is going to be a lot more murky on both sides and it'll be somewhere in between what either one has been claiming so loudly since the start.

    The xray he posted came from a university. He forgot to remove the tags.

    Says UNIV OF IOWA on the xray.

    And we still don't know the facts. CNN is in the business to make money. They make more when people are watching. They could very well have come out with this to stir things up, seeing the officer in question was now winning in the greater public eye. They can always backtrack later if they're wrong. But can do victory laps if they're right. Either way, cha-ching!

    That is why I laugh when posters and the general public jumpt to conclusions before the investigation is done.

    News media in all its forms likes to be first, grab the headlines, etc.

    We had reports that Brown was shot in the back by a witness. Seems the released medical reports do not support that conclusion.

    One should take as it is happening news reports with a grain of salt. Blogs, etc are just as bad.

    Lets see what comes out when the investigation is done.

    Yeah, that's where Johnson is an idiot himself. If you read the original blog post the image is captioned, clearly, as an EXAMPLE of what an orbital fracture looks like. Generally I like Johnson, but this piece he jumps the shark.

    Oh, and Jim Hoft isn't?

    Hint: one of those two is a respected news organization....the other is Jim Hoft
