This is why I hate the regressive left and the media. To them people and their reputations are at best collateral damage, at worst intentional targets.A choice pull quote from that article:
many Oberlin students believe that Gibson’s is not completely innocent. Some African American students, it is very difficult to know how many, don’t feel comfortable when they walk into the bakery and believe that they are treated differently there. To their minds, the protests weren’t a rush to judgment, but rather a burst of anger at a longstanding situation.
Even though the accusation was proven false, some people will never stop believing Gibson's Bakery is racist. And they'll pass it on to other people as if it were fact.
Until the end of time, people will spread the lie that Brett Kavanaugh was a rapist. And that Donald Trump was controlled by Putin.
It's been almost 150 years and people still believe Mrs. O'Leary was responsible for burning down half of Chicago.
Fuck journalists and the people who enable them.
