    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:

    Reports that Ofc Darren Wilson had a bruised or fractured eye socket are false. #ferguson A source close to the investigation tells CNN
    12:42 PM - 21 Aug 2014
    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.

    Cummings followed up his tweet with the following, however:

    Wilson was taken to the hospital after the shooting. He had xrays which came back negative. He was treated for a swollen face. #ferguson

    What this means is more details about the nature of the conflict between Brown and Wilson for people to fuss over.

    So what?

    Jim Hoft posted a freaking Xray (taken from another site). He flat out lied.

    And, Hoft originally posted with the Univ of Iowa on the xray he took from another site.

    Then...later, he did a crappy job trying to cover it up.

    It's not a so what situation. The swollen face may still be as a result of the same/similar physical conflict argued by the defense. I'm saying that the nature of the conflict between Brown and Wilson will probably still be debated for a while.

    You are jumping the gun. There are now conflicting reports, all based on unnamed sources. That is far from a settled matter. Be patient for definitive reporting.

    I am waiting until something credible or definitive actually comes out.I remember the low resolution video footage of Zimmeran walking into the police station and the liberal scum media claiming Zimmerman made up the claim his head was pounded into the pavement. There was the 9-11 call that was altered by CBS to make it seem as though Zimmerman had some racist motivation for calling 9-11 on Martin. The liberal scum on MSNBC were trying to claim that inaudible word on a 9-11 tape was a racist remark.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
