Was Michael Weiss Behind This Neocon Media Scam Which Promptly Backfired? (PropOrNot)

"If this is true, it would mean that the “fake news” meme ...was essentially kick-started by a neocon activist masquerading as a journalist who has pushed to have pro-Russian views equated with radical Islam."

Remember the November 2016 Washington Post story on the secretive outfit that furnished a list of purportedly Russian-backed “fake news” websites?

Well, thanks to some online sleuthing from a couple of bloggers/journalists, there’s good reason to believe that PropOrNot was the brainchild of Michael D. Weiss and the Interpreter staff.

If this is true, it would mean that the “fake news” meme – which Trump turned against its original MSM promoters to the extent that the Washington Post was calling to retire that “tainter term” by January 2017 – was essentially kick-started by a neocon activist masquerading as a journalist who has pushed to have pro-Russian views equated with radical Islam.

Hilarious.
