Mainstream Media Fails

Award Winning Brockton Enterprise Reporter Gets Called Out By Grieving Family For Making Up Lie About Elderly Woman Dying From Commie Cold


The Brockton Enterprise tried to do its part yesterday in spreading panic porn about the commie cold with this story.

“Wispy haired passenger.”

Be more dramatic. You can’t.

Apparently this mystery woman being buried was one of the 205 Brockton residents who died form the commie cold. Scary shit.

Except this was a completely made up lie on the part of the Brockton Enterprise.


After they got called for attending the funeral of a complete stranger just so they could use her death to fear monger about the commie cold and thus extend the lockdown for longer, they did issue a retraction. But you could only see it if you follow that specific comment thread of the Brockton Enterprise on Facebook.

“We work hard every day to ensure the accuracy…”

No, clearly you do not. First you hired this shitstain Ben Berke to write it.

That haircut just gave me coronavirus.

Benny boy went to Brown and majored in….

Economics and “urban studies.” Sounds like a great way to waste money on an Ivy League education.

He’s worked for a number of publications, which is a great sign, and has won awards for his work.

In reality these awards are just a way for newspapers to pat themselves on the back and make their welfare-salaried reporters feel good about themselves.

Ben had an agenda ready to go, he looked in the obituaries for a dead person to exploit, he contacted their family, he attended the funeral, and he literally made up a story about her dying from COVID. But then somehow that made it past the editors for publication, because they liked the fake story more than they did the truth. Now they’ll profit off of it while a grieving family suffers. All you get now is a blank page online, but it will be front page news tomorrow, which will be great news for the primarily elderly crowd that still gets home delivery of the newspaper. 

If you don’t see now that the mainstream media is the enemy of the people it’s because you’re not paying attention.

    I figured this would be a story on their star player, Marc V.
    No doubt he is an inspiration the this season 1 Greg Brady looking chooch.
    Drives me nuts when somebody posts an article link on the hub. Just screenshot the shit, none of us want to pay a cent for their online publication.
    Marc is better known for his ghoulish photography of opportunity than anything. It usually doesn’t bother me but I can see where some get rightfully upset.

    Democrats are too powerful if they even have tiny news papers like the enterprise doing everything they can to push the false narrative. It’s absolutely insane how the entire media, politicians, and entertainment are all in on this hoax. Fucking governor cuomo forced nursing homes to house carona patients, no logical person can explain that decision. Then they wonder where these “conspiracy theories “ come from

      You’re really not that bright if you think that journalists aren’t important. They’re literally how you know anything that’s happening in the world or the state or locally.

    China virus researchers have information which indicates that “High Testosterone” men recover well from the infection. It is thought that the testosterone effects on the immune system are beneficial.

    On the other hand, men with low testosterone respond poorly to the virus.

    In looking at the picture of reporter “Ben Berke”, he appears to be at a high risk of the most dangerous outcomes of the China virus.

    Ben – if you’ve been locked down for two months, you should have been using that time instead to develop your masculine side.

    How could he have produced and photographed “a series on unsafe conditions in a Massachusetts county jail that preceded a riot and a COVID-19 outbreak” between Jan 2017-Aug 2019. Did he know about it before anyone else or is this just poor English usage on his resume?

    There was also a whistleblower who worked at a nursing home who said that CBS news called their facility ahead to let them know that they would be filming the covid testing tents out front that day. When this person got to work, they found out that cbs news had asked some of their co-workers to stand in line (along with real people being tested) to make it look more busy. Project Veritas. That being said, holy ads! I barely got this comment out.

    “they did issue a retraction. But you could only see it if you follow that specific comment thread of the Brockton Enterprise on Facebook.”

    Say, whatever happened to that kissing nurse? Or that girl who didn’t like UT’s class?

    “welfare-salaried reporters”

    They should pay salaries with Turtlefunds.
