This week on Blocked and Reported, Jesse and Katie discuss how our most trust-worthy disinformation experts correct the record except when they don’t. Plus, conservative hero Tim Ballard faces the wrath of the nicest people on Earth.
(CORRECTION: In the original version of this episode that Primos heard before it went up for everyone else on Monday morning, I misunderstood some of the evidence suggesting Israel wasn’t responsible for the attack on the Gazan hospital. I’ve now re-recorded that bit with the below corrections, and if you scroll down to the tweet from Marc Garlasco, you’ll see my mistake: He was talking about the width of the crater, not its depth. Many thanks to the listener who wrote in to point this out, and I apologize for the error. -Jesse
Corrected version, with old, false material struck through and new, correct material in bold:
~9:56: "And you can see an impact crater which is only about one meter
30 centimeters deep wide or so. And he basically said, and again, this is a guy who is highly qualified on these issues, that this could not have been caused by Israeli weaponry, because that weaponry tends to leave nine-meter- deep wide craters, and there's a big difference between one meter 30 centimeters and nine meters.")
