Infowars make an editorial mistake

Infowars made a journalistic blunder on the OC Riverbed Mess (Infowars is Alex Jones news website)

Infowars reports

Video footage of a homeless encampment in Orange County, California, has gone ultra-viral after a Facebook page operated by former law enforcement posted stunning scenes of the sanctuary state’s rapid descent into a dystopian “shit hole.”

Retired Orange County Deputy Sheriffsreleased the video on Facebook, where it racked up nearly five million views and 104,000 shares in little more than a day.

In the caption, the page’s administrators placed blame for the shocking breakdown of law and order on Orange County Sheriff-Coroner Sandra Hutchens and Undersheriff Don Barnes, with a tongue-in-cheek reference to controversial – yet unsubstantiated – “sh*thole” comments attributed to President Donald Trump

Memo to Infowars: the OC Sheriff is going to evict the homeless people off the riverbed on January 22, 2018. The OC Register and the local TV news report this. This article made a major fact of omission and should have reported this. They should run a correction to include this. But of course, we know that journalistic integrity is not valued by Infowars and therefore people who read the infowars piece are not getting the complete story or a detailed backstory of what caused the riverbed problem.
