TruthRevolt Follows NewsBusters In Getting Punk'd By Satirical Website
Topic: Horowitz

TruthRevolt really needs to stop taking its cues from NewsBusters.

Just like NewsBusters' Noel Sheppard, TruthRevolt devoted a Nov. 25 post by Jeff Dunetz to a claim that a college history professor said that "If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live," attributing it to "the progressive Diversity Chronicle."

But as we pointed out when Sheppard did it, Diversity Chronicle is not "progressive" -- it's a right-wing satirical site that links to numerous "white nationalist" websites, as well as sites that promote eugenics and Holocaust denial.

If TruthRevolt is going to ape NewsBusters, they should at least go all the way -- unlike Dunetz, Sheppard has updated his post to acknowledge it's a hoax.
