Loesch Excuse For Promoting Birtherism: We Don't Do Groupthink

Though Dana Loesch, as far as I know, has never openly advocated for birtherism, she has played a role in helping to promote it by allowing Donald Trump and Roger Stone to spout nonstop birther nonsense on her show without challenging them. She also happily agrees with the idea that they are "just asking questions."

Today, Media Matters Senior Fellow Eric Boehlert mocked Loesch over the fact that her site Big Journalism recently published a flaming birther article called "What if the Birthers are Right?":

Loesch defended the nonsense by saying that the "Big sites" don't require "100% agreement:"

The fact that Loesch's site is openly posting already-debunked conspiracy theories shows exactly how cynical they are. Of course Loesch doesn't actually believe Obama was born in Kenya, but she's happy to use that rumor to push her ideology.

  1. There are the infamous words together in a sentence compromising themselves. Big is small. Long is short. We don't do groupthink. Ignorance is bliss.
