'Poor People Smell': Left-Wing Site Lies About 'Red Eye' Guest Host

The left-wing site Raw Story used a headline to falsely claim that Red Eye guest host Tom Shillue said during Tuesday night's show that "poor people smell bad." After Shillue complained they changed the headline to the just as misleading "poor areas smell bad."

In a humorous segment about the gentrification of New York, what Shillue actually said was "This thing with gentrification, I've been hearing this my whole life, you saw those pictures, those old places looked pretty ratty and they stunk."

As is made obvious if you look at the context of the segment, Shillue is referring to the old, run down businesses that have been replaced by places like Verizon stores.

Nothing new though.  Twist the words to demonize the opposition.

 I wonder, does this never get old to them, or do they ever just think about how things sound.I don't see the professionalism in this anywhere. There are real stories that need attention.

You know libs/progs have gotten desperate when they start lying about satire.

There must be nothing left.

Oy, vey.

But how many bother to even look beyond what they are told?

Some gave all and all gave some. Remember your rights as an American were earned with the blood of others. Don't waste them and please do your duty as a citizen and vote intelligently in every election.

 It doesn't get old - it is the entire playbook.

If they didn't have people writing this stuff and low intelligence citizens reading it and slobbering all over themselves, there wouldn't be a viable left wing in this country.

 Classic Alinski - one can't refute positions so one demonizes the messenger.
