The mainstream media has added a new page to their playbook. They make outrageous and false allegations against republicans, then apologize before they are sued for slander knowing that all the people who saw the original accusation will believe it and probably will never know it was retracted. USA Today slandered Milo Yiannopoulos:
“After white nationalist and alt-right poster boy Milo Yiannopoulos landed a massive book deal with a reported $250,000 advance, publisher Simon & Schuster has come under harsh criticism from those concerned that a book will elevate the voice of the notorious Breitbart editor. Yiannopoulos made headlines earlier this year when he was permanently banned from Twitter for organizing a targeted racist and sexist harassment campaign against Ghostbusters  and Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones.”
The allegations that MILO is a white nationalist and a member of the alt-right have since been removed, instead describing MILO as a “controversial internet personality,” while the false claim that he led a racist harassment campaign against actress Leslie Jones has also been changed.
The article still claims that MILO had a “part in a targeted racist and sexist harassment campaign” against Jones, however.
USA Today added an editor’s note to the updated article, reading: “Corrections & clarifications: An earlier version of this story misstated controversial affiliations for Milo Yiannopoulos.”
Several other mainstream media outlets have falsely branded MILO a white nationalist and a member of the alt-right since the announcement of his upcoming book Dangerous, including NBC News, who claimed that MILO is a “white nationalist troll,” and the New Yorker, who claimed MILO led a “racist online harassment campaign against the comedian Leslie Jones.”
