“Dear PoPville,

What do you think of the recent craziness from AltRight Conspiracy Theorists targeting Comet Ping Pong? I just wish there was more folks could do counter the lies being spread online. The other day some guy was live periscoping from inside the restaurant. Feeding more into the conspiracies.”

Thanks to all who forwarded this morning’s disturbing article from the super successful New York Times:

Fact Check: This Pizzeria Is Not a Child-Trafficking Site

“None of it was true. While Mr. Alefantis has some prominent Democratic friends in Washington and was a supporter of Mrs. Clinton, he has never met her, does not sell or abuse children, and is not being investigated by law enforcement for any of these claims. He and his 40 employees had unwittingly become real people caught in the middle of a storm of fake news.”
