Suddenly, actor Jussie Smollet has more plot twists in real life than he does in his work life.
The Media(D) couldn’t possibly resist a ‘persecution’ story like this one, especially since it checked all the right boxes.
Check. He’s an actor, and therefore a semi-celebrity.
Part of a Vulnerable Minority?
Check and Check. He’s Black AND he’s openly Gay.
Does it play off of emotionally-charged hot-button national issues?
Check. It invoked references to Lynching. Tough to get more emotionally charged than that.
And the big one…
Who is the villain in this story?
This question is critical. Without a bad guy, this isn’t a story about oppression. And let’s be honest. These days, if it isn’t about oppression — is it really news?
The villain is actually a GROUP!
A group of group of… race-baiting… violent… violent men uttering homosexual slurs.
Jackpot! The only thing that could make this any better is if it were a TARGETED (not-random) attack that could somehow be laid at the feet of Trump. Wait, wasn’t there a MAGA element to this story, too?
Perfect. TOO perfect, actually. Seemed almost made-to-order.
It blew up our BS detectors. But Democrats swallowed it hook, line and sinker.

Chicago is ‘MAGA country’? Really?
Turns out the journalistic instincts of the NEW Media sites like ClashDaily have yet again proven themselves to be a better judge of the available facts than the supposedly ‘reputable’ Media(D).
Piece by piece, Smollett’s story is completely unraveling.
The original two suspects? Exonerated.
Corroborating evidence? In a city surveilled as much as Chicago, there was no video evidence for the 60 seconds in which the events were said to have happened.
Phone records? Neither he nor his agent provided unredacted phone records to the police.
Video evidence shows he had a Subway sandwich in his hand AFTER he’d been attacked, thrown to the ground, kicked, ‘lynched’ and had bleach poured on him.
Police had already stated that if the story turns out to be anything less than authentic, charges will be filed.

And now? Even mainstream networks have started treating ‘hoax’ as a possible explanation of the events. Here’s CBS local:
BREAKING UPDATE: as of today, “A source with intimate knowledge of the investigation tells CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards the attack on #Smollett was potentially orchestrated by the actor himself, & involved two other men.” Charges could be filed today.https://t.co/uuY9Rm7NYq

Here are the ‘racist white guys’ police have detained in relation to the attack.
I can't believe the Jussie Smollett attack appears to have been a hoax. I've always considered Chicago to be MAGA country. https://t.co/7k6GVMvtWy

That’s weird. The police report had me picturing something … else.
It’s probably an honest mistake, though. Right?
Those apologies from the Democrats in the Media(D) and their elected counterparts should come pouring in any minute now.
Any. Minute. Now.
What could possibly account for the delay?
