Court papers filed in Arizona reveal that the FBI "engaged an informant, Mr. Daba Deng, who was from Kenya and who knew Mr. Simpson from the mosque he attended."
Baltimore, MD — Just minutes after the police state curfew went into effect in Baltimore Saturday night, the brutality began. However, the actual coverage of that brutality varies depending on who is telling this story.
The first video of the arrest is put out by CNN. It begins with a semi-conscious man laying on the ground with a reporter speculating on the possibility of the man faking his unconsciousness.
The reporter then describes how bottles were being thrown ... (more)
If you are like thousands of others, you have no doubt seen an iconic photo of Baltimore burning. The image began circulating throughout social media after a local Fox affiliate in Memphis, Tennessee apparently first ran it. Some other mainstream media outlets even shared the image, using it with headlines that said "Baltimore is Burning" and referenced a "purge".

The NSA used malware to tap into the Chinese networks that connect North Korea to the outside world and accessed the hackers' computers with the help of South Korea and other American allies, according to former U.S. and foreign officials and newly disclosed N...

Can't say I'm surprised, I thought it was a scam the second I saw it, it was too perfect. All these YouTubers driven to make viral videos have been pulling scams like this one after another lately. Think the drunk girl who men try to rape video, the cat-calling video made by the scam-artist producer "Rob Bliss" (whom, by the way, some police in Lowell, Michigan hired to make a PR-stunt for themselves). At this point, if you don't assume scam until proven otherwise, you're not paying attention. What surprises me about this is that they're collecting donations off it, $136,749 so far. Collecting donations off a lie is fraud and is criminal, people have been sent to jail for doing similar, claiming they have cancer, etc. For their part, they're still claiming it's real. Obviously, I don't believe them, but I'll admit anything is possible. Of course, this story is only noteworthy because the media ran with it uncritically. - Chris, InfoLib
