Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week the unknown lemmings working for the progressive media propaganda group Media Matters For America (MMFA) scan twitter , ready to pounce on any conservative who says one word out of line. Today the conservative they pounced on was Bill O’ Reilly, sort of.

Sitting in their offices in a Washington, D.C., the hard working MMFA slanderers were reading every tweet written about the horrible shooting in San Bernardino, California.  That’s when they ran across:

“Oh wow” they must have thought, “we snagged a big one.” In that MMFA office alarm bells may have rang as they tweeted out the below which has since been removed:

“This Bill O’Reilly tweet on San Bernadino is promoting a hoax. Debunked here: — Media Matters (@mmfa) December 2, 2015

Now if the MMFA lemmings had bothered to look before they celebrated, they may have realized they just bashed the Fox News host for a tweet made by a hoax account.

Right under today’s tweet by the fake O’ Reilly were two tweets from Nov. 23rd blaming the same white supremacist for a different shooting:

Now if that wouldn’t give the average person pause to double check if the account was real, a look up would have sealed it for them. At the top of a twitter page it shows the number of followers the account has. A big shot, the real Bill O’ Reilly account has 876 thousand followers. 

The fake one has 128…not 128 thousand but only 64 x 2.

And if all that doesn’t give the folks at MMFA that they are working with a faux O’ Reilly there is the blue check. The blue check which means that the folks at twitter have made sure the holder of the account is the real person. The real Bill O’ Reilly is a big shot, he has a blue check.

If you can look at the fake tweets you can see that pseudo-O’ Reilly doesn’t have a blue check.  Now you may ask how am I sure that the MMFA people know about the blue check?  Well that’s easy…

You see Media Matters also has a blue check.

As usual, the goons at Media Matters are so quick to rush and slander a conservative, they missed obvious warning signs.  For that stupidity twitter should take away their blue check.
