the Jussie Smollett hoax

Styx on the Jussie Smollett hoax:

In case you've been under a rock: Jussie Smollett is a gay African-American actor who recently claimed he had been assaulted by Trump supporters shouting MAGA slogans and wearing red MAGA caps. Quite a few people pronounced themselves skeptical because the story sounded too on-the-nose (not to mention it sounded like any number of other proven hoaxes related to racism), and Smollett himself kept changing his story. As investigations continued, the story began to look more and more as if Jussie Smollett himself may have orchestrated the attack on his person, using extras from "Empire," the TV show he had been working on.

We've been down this road many times before, but the media never learn.
