John Solomon foisted a bogus story on Fox News viewers. His punishment? A contract.

There's a lot of "Solomites" out there these days. 

Quote:
Fox News host Sean Hannity in late July presented a daring prediction about former FBI director James B. Comey. A then-ongoing investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general, roared Hannity, would find Comey guilty of a “lack of candor” in answering questions about the handling of classified information and other matters.

Said Hannity on his July 31 program: “The DOJ’s watchdog, the Inspector General [Michael] Horowitz, is preparing a damning report on Comey’s ‘conduct in his final days as the FBI director that will likely conclude that he leaked classified information and showed a lack of candor.’ That would be lying. That’s why a lot of other people just got indicted and they’re going to jail for that.”

That proclamation was based on a story by “Hannity” regular John Solomon in the Hill. The headline: “James Comey’s next reckoning is imminent — this time for leaking.”

And it was bogus, as the eventual actual Justice Department IG report made clear. Released in late August, the report did not find that Comey behaved with a “lack of candor,” which is indeed a bureaucratic term for lying. And it “found no evidence that Comey or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the memos to members of the media.”

Faced with a black-and-white rebuttal of their reporting, Hannity and Solomon did what propagandists do: They gaslit. “Let’s be clear, this report is exactly what a few weeks ago we told you exactly what it would be. We were not wrong,” said Hannity. When pressed on the fully off-target conclusions of his IG report preview, Solomon sent the Erik Wemple Blog an explanation of how Comey violated FBI policy and leaked a memo ... to his attorneys.

What does Solomon get for such work? A contract, it turns out: He is now a Fox News contributor.

I really don't know much of anything about the Ukraine/Biden/Trump/Foreign born dudes, Greg.  I love you man, so I'm going to admit that to you.  I've been heavily invested in moving to California and playing cribbage on my balcony with my wife, watching the sun set over the palm trees while I smoke a joint.

Haven't read the news in weeks.

But I'm betting I don't really need in order to predict the ways both sides are going to spin and argue this story.  That's the bet I'm taking.  I'm going out of my way to remain as clueless on this subject as possible.

Does it really feel new to you, Greg?  I'm not so sure.  Kinda feels like Act 2 is just a rerun of Act 1.  Speaking as a common man now who doesn't pay attention to the news like the rest of the voting public.
