Under the leadership of President Barack Obama, racial tensions in the United States have reached a boiling point — and it’s largely the fault of the mainstream media’s bias.
If the liberal media were to be believed, white nationalism has reached a fever pitch — and the election of Donald Trump caused a wave of nasty, racially motivated hate crimes against minorities across the country.
“Emboldened white racists are running rampant!” was the story repeated time and again on headlines across the country following the election.
Just one problem — turns out many of these widely reported hate crimes were hoaxes pulled off by their so-called victims.
Let us state this clearly here: the seriousness of hate crimes is not to be dismissed. The Horn News editorial team in no way condones any act of racism and recognizes that not all post-election racial attacks were faked. There were credible incidents on both sides of the political aisle of racist behavior, ALL of which The Horn News strongly condemns.
But how can the mainstream media continue to claim they have credibility when major news outlets such as Buzzfeed (“Drunk Men Yelling ‘Donald Trump’ Attempt To Remove Woman’s Hijab On NYC Subway”), Slate (“NY Subway Riders Stand By as Three Men Verbally Assault Muslim Teenager”), CBS News (“Muslim teen verbally attacked on NYC subway”) all independently failed to verify the stories they’re running out to a national audience?
Turns out, that woman in the aforementioned story made the whole thing up, police say. 18-year-old Yasmin Seweid was arrested Wednesday on charges of filing a false report and obstructing governmental administration.
Seweid first told police the incident happened on Dec. 1 as the train pulled into Grand Central Station, and claimed the men told her “you don’t belong here” and referred to her hijab as a “rag.” She also reported that one of the men grabbed her bag, breaking the strap, and another tried to take off her hijab.
None of that was true. According to multiple reports, Seweid has broken her parents curfew and made up the story to avoid getting in trouble.
This isn’t the first time a major news story about a fake hate crime blamed on Trump supporters has led to an arrest.
Not by a long shot. Since the election, a Philadelphia man was arrested for a phony pro-Trump racist graffiti spree, while another Philadelphia woman quietly retracted her story about being assaulted once questioned by police.
A very similar incident happened in Louisiana as well, while in Chicago a different student’s claims of harassment by Trump supporters also turned out to be a hoax.
In fact, it happened all over the country. In Texas, a man was attacked by Trump supporters… but not really.
Was this man in Malden, MA assaulted by racist Trump supporters? Nope, sorry.
Pro-Trump Islamophobia drove this family out of America?
The Canadian filmmaker brutally beaten in Los Angeles by homophobic Trump supporters?
How about the Nazi flag seen flying over San Francisco in celebration of Trump’s victory?
The issue with these stories isn’t that they’re being reported. Violence happens, and Americans deserve to know.
But the willful ignorance of the mainstream media — and their unwillingness to vet their sources — is causing ACTUAL racial violence.
How bad has it gotten? Watch this eye-opening video to see —

More fakestream news from “legitimate” news outlets.
Probably Harry Reid. He has a history of lying
John G. says
Surprise, Surprise – only the “Liberals” were dumb enough to fall for it.
They fell for it and knew better, but they used it for their own agenda. She needs to be accountable just like anybody would for a false news report.
The only requirement being that, if it agrees with their own liberal prejudice, it must be true!
I have never put much stock in anything the media reports But how can I know that the stories you print are the truth You dont have much of anything in the way of proof Just not trusting the media
An excellent question, Patricia, and something more Americans should ask the media.
The Horn News warns readers be cautious of ANYTHING you read online. If you want to verify our stories, our sources are always included in the hyperlinks. A savvy person could, perhaps, call the police departments and ask their public relations representatives to verify these claims?
I don’t hate her because she’s a Muslim. I hate her because she’s a lying piece of crap.
Presela Anne Robley says
Yeah, that sums it up VERY WELL. Of course, the idiots on the left refuse to buy such a common sense idea. Really PATHETIC MORONS.
Never really followed an election until this one. This one opened up my eyes to how big a liar and hateful the liberal media is. Quit taking the sorry worthless newspaper and will never watch another newscast on a liberal channel. THEY ARE PATHETIC.!!!
Amen to that!
I believe it all started back when the security guard killed the black thug kid. Odumbo makes it look like he killed a innocent boy that was doing nothing wrong. Makes a comment, if I had a boy I would wish he was just like him. What a crock of shit.
Desert Lion says
If you’re going to make a point about something else being a crock, perhaps you ought to get your own facts straight also. The comment said nothing about what the soon-to-be-ex-President wished, only what his son would look like, and there was no “security guard,” only a local neighborhood watch member. If you don’t understand the differences or why they’re significant, perhaps the source of your comments is that same crock…
I am white.
Not a member of the KKK or any such thing.
I am a member of a Christian faith though and I don’t think that qualifies.
Honestly unaware of a single other white person that is even close to being a white Supremacist.
This is all a crock of crap!
Does it exist on the other side?
Like BLM, BET, Ebony—–I guess so.
Seems rather hypocritical doesn’t it?
Blue lives do matter——screw the other BLM.
Peter allen says
Muslims want to bring there “it is OK to cut off your head if you don’t bow down to sharia law” to the US.They are theworst religion in the world!!!k
James belvin says
From. ” HayDude” 12/16/2017. The news reporting agencies should be held responsible for such misinformation. They should held libel (pay heavy fines or some form of punishment ) for intentionally misleading the public.This is one of the reasons Hillary lost ( dishonest / can’t be trusted ) This is also the reason this country is so divided . I am totally ashamed of the main stream media ( they are disgusting ). Amen
Dad was right when he said “Don’t believe anything you hear and half of what you see as it is made up for show”.
Thank you: THE HORN????
Bud webster says
Has anyone else noticed that the word liar is synonymous with the progressive, and their marxist puppeteers. Aside from doug schon, and pat cadell not one of them speak the truth about anything, not only do they believe the lie, they try each other to top the previous lie!
It’s like a house of cards. Everything’s falling apart for the Dummocrats.
More fake news from fake news, the sad thing is that more than likely some bad things have happened but they are overshadowed by the lies. Too bad these outlets aren’t fined for reporting lies and made up stories.
How do you get a one armed liberal out of a tree?
You wave to them.
I did not write the question mark
THANK YOU: THE HORN

i was hoping that it was a mistake, thank you for clarifying that.
Alan Talbott says
If Hillary lies while wandering aimlessly alone in a forest taking selfies of herself and no one is there to hear her, is it still a lie ?
Guy Mcgowen says
give that man a cigar.! (60,s way of saying, “Right on”.)
Watch the left create fake news then complain about it. It was the left that told Trump supporters “We don’t need you here” I have heard that very phrase spoken to me.
Susan Dix says
I hope that Josh Earnest gets sued by our new President. He is not only spewing lies , but uses his office as Press Secretary.
This whole thing is a fabrication from Oldbummer. News for them, Oldbummer meddled in Isreal’s election!!! No outrage over that. Mr.Oldbummer needs to check in the mirror. Lying Hypocrite!! Hillary lost this election all by herself. Talk about interfering
in our election. “Investigate” George Soros and see how many ways he meddled to get Hildabeast elected. It still wasn’t enough. It is amazing that God, Himself intervened. God is still in control of HIS world!!
LOL This “story” was her cover after her email fiasco first came to light. She could not accept her part in using a bogus, unsecured server. She got hacked, and immediately, cooked up the “Russian Connection” saying it HAD to be the Russians.
Then Mr. Trump made a JOKE that if Mr. Putin had found the 33,000 missing emails to please return them to our MSM and he
(Putin) would probably get a reward. He was being sarcastic because of Hillary’s “extremely careless” behavior. NOW, after all of this time, because SHE lost, they make a huge deal out of this remark. If that is their only proof that is razor thin at best.
Theirs is criminal, treason, at worst to overthrow the government. LOCK THEM ALL UP!!!!
Am i THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS SHe’S a SEXY Little liar.
She is not sexy,she is a beautifull woman and I DID NOT HAVE SEX WITH THAT WOMAN.
Lloyd, I agree with the not sexy—but can not agree with the “beautiful woman” part and I would never have sex with that woman, We could get whatever she has if you did.
Yes, you’re the only one that thinks she’s a sexy little liar.
Well, maybe except for that Islamic spy, Huma Abedin – but i think she just slept with The Liar to bleed her for info.
Justin W says
Hillary rotten Clinton is a liar and many of her supporters are liars. Hillary believes that the truth is whatever works best at the moment. That same philosophy serves many of her followers.
Every person who files a false police report should be arrested and prosecuted. Their lies hurt the credibility of people who are truly victimized.
IMAGINE THAT …
richard stabler says
I don’t think anyone puts out as much “fake news” as our news media here in the US. The mainstream media is nothing but trash.
Its funny how the news just dropped all the talk about how the dnc sent in those disrupters to trumps rally’s an people where hurt
El Tejas says
All the hate and anger was being demonstrated by the rioters!
Texas Belle says
Fake news mostly comes from the MSM who report stories that they don’t check, yet are believed by many. It is a sad time in this country when the public cannot believe what Reporters and Journalists choose to put out as news. We are fast becoming a Banana Republic when the New Media are controlled by the Government or they are so corrupt themselves that they shade the news to favor the Democrats. Pravda?? The Dems are now putting out information that Russia hacked into e-mails and released enough information to change the course of the election. They have shown no proof and the CIA has refused to brief Congress on their findings. They will have egg on their faces when it turns out that the hacking was done by insiders of the Democrat party.
Mike W says
Who cares who released the emails? Of more importance is what the emails stated. The DNC was shown to be corrupt. Clinton was shown to be dishonest. Clinton left secret and top secret information open to the world (this was not revealed by hacked emails but by US sources). No, Hillary lost because of who she is, not who revealed her corruption.
Dr S Vigneswaran says
All mentally stable and good americans should wholeheartedly support TRUMP and endorse his visions/policies without hesitation………………….leave the evil to talk and do what it wants…
