If this doesn’t prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Left-wing “mainstream media” is no longer focused on news that informs our citizenry with an aim towards improving and strengthening our republic, nothing will.
Apparently because nothing else is more important in this day and age, The Daily Beast assigned a reporter to look for the person who trolled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with a meme that pokes fun at her inability to get through news conferences these days without sounding like she’s wasted.
What’s more, the reporter — Kevin Poulsen — managed to learn the identity of the person because someone at Facebook readily revealed him.
According to Poulsen’s article, the claimed he was looking for a “Russian troll behind the ‘Drunk Pelosi’ viral video” — because to the Left, only ‘Russians’ would dare make fun of Democrats in the first place.
“Turns out he’s an itinerant forklift operator from the Bronx who’s been secretly running hard-right ‘news’ outlets across social media for years,” Poulsen tweeted. “Also, not Russian.”
NEW: I went looking for the Russian troll behind the 'Drunk Pelosi' viral video hoax. Turns out he's an itinerant forklift operator from the Bronx who's been secretly running hard-right "news" outlets across social media for years. Also, not Russian. https://t.co/mChiyVqy0B

From Poulsen’s story:
On May 22, a Donald Trump superfan and occasional sports blogger from the Bronx named Shawn Brooks posted a video clip of Nancy Pelosi on his personal Facebook page. The clip showed Pelosi at her most excitable, stammering during a press conference as she voiced frustration over an abortive infrastructure meeting with the president. Brooks’ commentary on the video was succinct: “Is Pelosi drunk?”
Thirteen minutes after that, the ‘offending’ forklift driver — Shawn Brooks, who is black and conservative — posted a different Pelosi video to a Facebook page called, “Politics Watchdog, which is “one of a series of hyper partisan news operations Brooks runs (with help, he claims),” Poulsen wrote.
Brooks, Poulsen wrote, would go on to post “the same doctored video” to a second Facebook page that he manages, AllNews 24/7. “This clip was identical to the Politics WatchDog video on every way, except that it didn’t carry the Politics WatchDog branding that was superimposed over the earlier video,” Poulsen wrote.
Wow, what a sleuth. And of course, The Daily Beast’s editor doubled down on the journo-terrorism during an appearance Sunday on CNN, whose host, little Brian Stelter never questioned him.
Not only was Facebook an accessory in Poulsen’s act of journo-terrorism — through the doxxing of Brooks — but the platform also cut off Brooks’ source of income from the video after it had already earned $1,000. (Related: New alternatives to Twitter, Google, Facebook rapidly emerging: These sites won’t censor you.)
“We have zero interest in making money from fake news and our policy is to not allow people to make money from content that has been rated false by a fact-checker,” the company said in a statement.
Unless, of course, that fake news is coming from Leftist “mainstream” sources like The Daily Beast, The New York Times, the Washington Post, or CNN, all of which have been responsible for publishing scores of phony reports claiming or suggesting the 2016 Trump campaign “colluded” with Russia to “steal the election from Hillary Clinton,” or that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report claims the president “obstructed justice” (it does not).
Here’s hoping Brooks raises plenty of cash to sue the pants off of Mark Zuckerberg and his loathsome platform. What a sellout he is to authoritarianism.
This journo-terrorism has to stop. It’s no wonder no one trusts any media, even those of us who regularly report the truth.
