Facebook spanks Breitbart:

12/8/17, "Facebook Informs Breitbart Gloria Allred Yearbook Forgery is Fake News," Breitbart, Ben Kew

"Facebook warned Breitbart News on Friday that the author of a completely factual story concerning the accuser of Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore needed to consult “additional reporting” from the liberal fact-checker Politifact.

The story [authored by John Nolte], published on Friday morning, detailed how Beverly Young Nelson, who accused Roy Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager, admitted to adding “notes” to part of her yearbook, which she claims Moore signed.

This revelation came despite Nelson claiming at her initial press conference alongside her lawyer Gloria Allred, that the entire yearbook document was solely Moore’s handwriting.

In a message sent to Breitbart News’s Facebook page, the company warned that there was “additional reporting” from liberal fact-checker Politifact on the issue.

“Before you share this content, you might want to know that there is additional reporting on this from PolitiFact,” the message read.

This message is now sent to everyone who tries to share the link.

“A conspiracy-minded website attempted to cast doubt on the evidence presented by one of eight women who accused Roy Moore of sexual assault in a misleading headline days ahead of the Alabama Senate race,” Politifact wrote about the incident.

“Nelson says she added the time and location to the inscription. But she says the note and signature were from Moore,” the article continues. “That’s not what the headlines of the Gateway Pundit, Breitbart or Silence is Consent. All three say Nelson said she either tampered with Moore’s signature or forged the inscription. There’s no evidence of that.”"...

[Ed. note: To Politifact: Merriam-Webster defines "forgery": "the crime of falsely and fraudulently making or altering a document." This is exactly what Ms. Nelson says she did. From google search for "definition of forgery": "Synonyms for forgery: fake, counterfeit, fraud, sham, imitation, replica." These synonyms describe what Ms. Nelson's actions produced. Breitbart's article by John Nolte (posted below) never states she "tampered with Moore's signature." I don't know what Politifact means by "the inscription." The fact is the woman now admits she added text to what she weeks ago described in its entirety on national television as "evidence" of text placed by someone else. The woman lied for the purpose of influencing the outcome of a US election. Politifact may slice and dice the meaning of "forgery," but the actions certainly are lies and had the same intent as forgery. When this is done to effect the outcome of a US election, it's quite serious.] 

(continuing): "Facebook’s warning is part of a broader plan announced last year by CEO Mark Zuckerberg to begin adding warning labels on stories they deem to be false, with the help of partisan “fact-checking” organizations such as Snopes and PolitiFact.

Breitbart News has reached out to Facebook for comment, although no reply was received by the time of publication."

12/8/17, "Bombshell: Roy Moore Accuser Beverly Nelson Admits She Forged Yearbook," Breitbart, John Nolte 

"Beverly Young Nelson has finally admitted that she forged a portion of the infamous high school yearbook that she and attorney Gloria Allred used as proof of her accusations against U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.

And in yet another blow to the credibility of ABC News, the disgraced, left-wing network downplayed the bombshell by presenting this admission of forgery as adding “notes” to the inscription. Worse still, the reporter actually coaches Nelson, puts words in her mouth, downplays the enormous significance of her deceit.

“Nelson admits she did make notes to the inscription,” ABC News tells us. “But the message was all Roy Moore.”

“Beverly, he signed your yearbook,” ABC News reporter Tom Llamas says.

“He did sign it,” she replies.

“And you made some notes underneath.”

“Yes,” Nelson says.

And then, after a woman admits to forging a document used in a campaign to destroy the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, ABC News quickly moves on as though it is not news of extraordinary consequence.

Llamas also fails to ask any follow-ups, such as “If the explanation is this simple, why wait all these weeks to offer it?” Or, “Why did you lie?”

Nelson is accusing Moore of attempting to assault her when she was just 16-years-old. With the election just four days away, this admission of forgery could not come at a better time for Moore. Nelson and Allred are planning a news conference Friday, but nothing will overcome the forgery admission.

How can anyone believe anything she says after admitting to such a thing? Early reports are that Nelson and Allred will produce an expert to prove the rest of the yearbook is not a forgery. So a proven forger is bringing in her own expert. What an insult to the people of Alabama.

Another problem with Nelson is that she has a motive to lie and forge: as a circuit judge, Moore ruled against her in a 1999 divorce case.

The Moore campaign has been pressuring Nelson and Allred for weeks to submit the yearbook for independent handwriting analysis. Now everyone knows why that request was rejected and ignored.

With Nelson now thoroughly discredited, this leaves two accusers against Moore.

One is Leigh Corfman, who claims Moore molested her as a 14-year-old child. She is the most credible of the three, but the narrative behind her story, that Moore’s abuse resulted in Corfman’s living a troubled life of “drinking, drugs, boyfriends, and a suicide attempt,” is directly contradicted by contemporaneous court records.

Moore’s final accuser is Tina Johnson, a woman who claims Moore groped her butt in his office in 1991. But, again, as was the case with Corfman and Nelson, the left-wing media outlets reporting these allegations (the Washington Post, AL.com) either failed to fully vet the accusers or withheld crucial context.

Thanks to New Media’s going behind these discredited outlets to fact check the reporting, we now know that Johnson did not tell the entire truth. She was not in Moore’s office “on business.” If she was in Moore’s office at all, it was due to a bitter custody battle where Moore represented Johnson’s mother, who was trying to gain custody of Johnson’s 12-year-old son based on the claim that Johnson was an “unfit, absent, and unstable mother.”

If the media and the accusers and Gloria Allred told the full truth to begin with, they would all be more credible.

As far as the accusations against Moore involving his wanting to date teenage girls, those are trumped-up charges, utter nonsense. The age of consent in Alabama was and is 16. Moreover, 40 years ago, it was not at all uncommon in the South for a 32-year-old man to seek a much younger bride. So not only did Moore not break the law, he was not violating any social mores."
