The far-left Daily Beast spread the fake news Wednesday that a “white nationalist” had been a guest at the White House.
After informing readers that the leader of “a white nationalist group … visited the White House on Wednesday,” the Daily Beast’s Asawin Suebsaeng and Will Sommer then claimed he had been a White House guest.
In the original article, the Daily Beast reported that this “white nationalist” leader visited the White House on Wednesday.
Stealth rewrite: “Though [the white nationalist’s] post was dated Wednesday, Walters’ explanation suggests that he visited the White House on either October 20 or 21, when the Fall Garden Tour was held.”
So based only on the date the photo was posted, without knowing if it were true, the Daily Beast told its readers that date was also the date of the visit, which, of course, fit a false narrative about triumphant racists celebrating Tuesday’s election results as guests of the White House.
