I hope the restaurant and its employees sue Alex Jones et al back to the Stone Age.

CNN liberal? Nice try with yet another false narrative. They did more to legitimize Trump than FOX, as well as putting his woman hating apologist-in-chief on their payroll. Sounds pretty lefty to me.

Ignoring the politics, what the younger Flynn did in promoting the Hillary selling kids into slavery story almost got people killed. The person who thought it was real brought his AR-15 to a pizza shop & fired off a few shots. It could have killed many people and was completely, idiotically irresponsible.
The younger Flynn has, appropriately, been fired. If his dad continues to promote his "Flynn Facts" into T's ears, it will not be good for the US, but I'm betting that nothing will be done until after a disaster occurs.

David, I wonder if CNN will report on this.

http://radiotvtalk.blog.ajc.com/2016/12/07/black-employees-file-class-action-lawsuit-against-cnn/

The very network that spent much of the election calling Americans racists and homophobes, which I'm not even sure why, because the candidate that they supported was a straight/married female.

And now their employees have sued for racial discrimination. It's really not news.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

Thanks for bringing this information forward. Fake news sites and unfounded accusations did play a negative role in the election. Almost everyone running for office spins their statements but what Flynn is doing goes way beyond that. Re-tweeting stories that have no basis in truth is just wrong and there is no justification for doing that. We must continue to expose these activities for what they are...lies. For a person with the high position that has been given to Flynn to conduct himself this way is dangerous. When the guy went to the Pizzeria to "self investigate" he was armed and discharged his weapon. Imagine the fear that the employees endured in this confrontation. Lies have consequences and Flynn and his son need to take responsibility for posting false information.

By all means, stick to your sources, HCFP. And please be sure to tell us when you find out which Kardashian is carrying Bigfoot's love child.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

Sorry peabo but NBC, ABC and CNN, CBS and MSNBC are a joke trying to pass themselves off as journalists, when in fact they are representatives for the demo party.

NBC promises to stop saying "illegals."

Now that is some first class journalism there.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

Jill Stein's recount hits a snag in Michigan when Detroit can not reconcile many of their precincts records.

Michigans largest county voted overwhelmingly for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, but officials couldnt reconcile vote totals for 610 of 1,680 precincts during a countywide canvass of vote results late last month.

Most of those are in heavily Democratic Detroit, where the number of ballots in precinct poll books did not match those of voting machine printout reports in 59 percent of precincts, 392 of 662.

According to state law, precincts whose poll books dont match with ballots cant be recounted. If that happens, original election results stand.

You guys make this too easy. Canada Free Press is the Arizona Daily Independent with a Toque. In other words, a joke trying to pass itself off as journalism.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

What's happening with national governance these days is indeed frightening.

But let's rewind a bit: what methods were used by Clinton and the DNC to defeat Sanders' groundbreaking grass roots campaign to wrest the "Democratic" party out of the hands of neoliberal plutocrats? We didn't see much coverage of that in this blog, David. And, when it comes to the LARGE purveyors of "liberal" discourse in this country, many of us who followed the NYTimes and the Sanders campaign noticed a disturbing lack of balance in the way that supposed bastion of accurate, fair, well researched journalism reported on Clinton and Sanders. The violations of journalistic integrity and respect for FACTS may not have been of the same magnitude as the Twitter absurdities you report in this piece, but some would say the violations of integrity were different only in scale, not in kind.

While we're talking about behaving responsibly with FACTS in political discourse, the problems we have in social media and the blog-o-sphere in this country include not only circulating specious stories that have no basis in fact, they also include what some call "lying-by-omission." That means failing to report something that is relevant and that voters need to know, for example your own omission of discussion of candidates you endorsed receiving compromising donations from people affiliated with a company to which they had recently voted to grant a multi-million dollar contract. Or your failure to mention the fact that so-called political progressives you had endorsed voted in favor of outsourcing the management of substitute teacher labor and in effect undermined the ability of long term substitute teachers to qualify for benefits. Or the absence in your blog on education of reference to the fact that the AZ Attorney General's office found that candidates you endorsed for the TUSD Board had violated Open Meeting Law when they voted to discuss the Superintendent's goals in a closed rather than in an open meeting.

You object to the subject of this piece being "gullible enough to believe in the wild-eyed conspiracy theories...[or]... a liar spreading wildly untrue fake news for political purposes." That brings to mind the conspiracy theories you spread about TKF in the days before the November 8 election. With absolutely no basis in fact, you spread speculations about the motives of Tucson business leaders who donated to that IEC, while conspicuously failing to mention documented violations of campaign finance ethics and reporting practices of the candidates you endorsed. See this piece and the comment stream following it:

http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2016/10/10/more-on-the-financial-backers-of-tusd-kids-first

I imagine some of your readers are enjoying the self-righteous posturing you've made your 24/7 occupation since November 8, but to those who've paid consistent attention to the quality of reporting you tend to provide, the whole scene -- both mainline Democrats and those they love to complain about -- brings to mind the famous passage from the first chapter of Isaiah:

The whole head is sick,
and the whole heart faint.
From the sole of the foot even to the head,
there is no soundness in it.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

Bisbee boy,
You are excited about trump's choices for HUD and Education. Let's see. HUD, Ben Carson publicly admits he has no ability or knowledge to run a federal agency. Should be interesting, and this excites you. Future DOE Sec Devos has no experience with public education as a parent, student, teacher or administrator and doesn't even believe it should exist. So you don't want to fix public education, you want to eliminate it. OK. This excites you. Again, interesting.

Trump has "a 20 minute attention span?"
