The Softball Game: Virginia Flaggers whine about "Fake News" even though the majority of their press coverage is positive, and ignores the extremists and white nationalists they befriend...

Folks, when was the last time a reporter asked Susan Hathaway a tough question? Really, think about that. So why are the Flaggers whining about "Fake News" when pretty much all of the coverage they get is one-sided and flattering? The Virginia news media love the Flaggers because Confederate flags are controversial, and controversy generates clicks. They aren't going to go after their golden goose with tough questions because they need them. But that's ok, we will.

You see, the Flaggers aren't happy unless they are completely controlling the message. If they aren't, they throw one of their trademark temper tantrums. I mean, what are they whining about? The media didn't even ask them about ol' 14 Words Lesters. Sheesh.

Hey Flaggers, it's not "Fake News" when they point out how incredibly massive the anti-racist presence was in Lexington, and how pitifully small yours was, that's just called reality. Deal with it.
Restoring the honor!
