Got a lie you want to spread around?
Perhaps you should think about not being so insulting. You were in a similarly general talking down tone in the PM you sent me (regarding the Russian hack thread, but referencing this topic as well). You are not an authority just because the New York Times prints the version you approve of. These threads were put here on the grounds that people would keep the conversations respectful. I started this thread, and in the title I put the word, "Precedents," because there are several such precedents. Whether I got "totally scammed" (as you put it in the PM) on this particular iteration of the repeated theme of child sexual abuse perpetrated by the powerful, remains to be seen, disproved, or covered up.
I asked you to go ahead and post what you sent me in the PM, "as is." If you think it's a argument, make it publicly in this thread, or the hacking thread. Or tell me to go ahead and post what you sent me (I have it saved), they were your words, in your tone, and should be good enough to go public, yes?
As someone who has done some amount of research into government, class, and corporate misdeeds, to be dismissed as a conspiracy theorist, when the MSM makes that argument and it is picked up (because propaganda works) will never sit well. Granted, very little has ever changed because of any work I have done, but then, is that a reason to not do it? I may not work so hard at it in my old age, but a spoonful of New York Times (the people who brought us the Iraq War) isn't going to make it go down any easier.
