Let's have a look at which of us are actually putting out inaccurate information, and which of us is not too damn lazy or arrogant to fact check...[Link to WP story and Link to Re-Newsit blog]@Vickie_Pate my piece includes actual facts and interviews. Yours is just assumptions and speculation— Wesley Lowery (@WesleyLowery) May 6, 2015
Wesley Lowery: my piece includes actual facts and interviews Inaccurate
Re-Newsit: I actually spoke with Timothy Kucharski (and David Malick), as well. Mr. Kucharski was sent a copy of my blog for accuracy, and with the exception of one small point, he approved. I would never interview Shaun King because he is, in my opinion, a pathological liar and is incapable of telling the truth. I use his own posted words to catch him in his infinite stream of lies.
Wesley Lowery: So when a new court filing in the Rice family’s civil suit against the city of Cleveland revealed that Tamir has yet to be buried and that his mother was, at least temporarily, living in a homeless shelter, King was incensed.
Re-Newsit: According to the lawyers, and countless MSM sites, the family chose to move because the park was too close to their home, not for financial reasons. According to their attorneys, Tamir has not been buried by their own choice and not for financial reasons.
Wesley Lowery: As investigation enters fifth month, Tamir Rice’s mother has moved into a homeless shelter (May 5, 2015) Inaccurate
Re-Newsit: In "early April" (see video 3:06) - Samaria Rice moved into an apartment. Fact
Wesley Lowery: In reference to Shaun King "one of the top protest organizers in Ferguson" Wholly inaccurate
Re-Newsit: Shaun King has never organized or even attended a protest in Ferguson. Fact
Wesley Lowery: "Not long after the money was handed to the court-appointed trustee, the Rice family shook up their legal team." Inaccurate
Re-newsit: Quoting Shaun King: "I have worked directly with Attorney Ben Crump and his legal team to make sure that the family received these funds." Emphasis on "received".
Wesley Lowery: (posted within the article)
In 24 hours, I raised $60,000 for the family of Tamir Rice. Little did I know that white supremacists & 2 scumbag attorneys would intervene— Shaun King (@ShaunKing) May 4, 2015
What a team!
Wesley Lowery: But Kucharski had never heard of King — one of the fund’s primary organizers — and Rice’s mother told him that she was unaware of the fundraiser.
Re-Newsit: This tweet, combined with the above excerpt from your article, are blatant admissions that Shaun put up the website all on his own. If the mother didn't know about it, and the attorneys didn't know about it, and team Crump hadn't been hired yet, who approved Shaun King to start a fundraiser in his name with funds going directly to him? (Shaun can save the bulls**t Uncle story).
Re-Newsit: From the horses mouth (King), regarding accusations he stole funds raised last December for Tamir Rice's family (note: I never said SK stole the funds, this was someone else, I wrote he was "scamming"):
You have a lot of nerve, Mr Lowery, to call my blog inaccurate and to place yourself on some sort of journalistic high-horse when you blindly swallow whatever is fed to you by those you think might help advance your career. I write the truth and I source it. If I don't have a source I make it clear that I cannot verify. The rest is clearly opinion.
I would think the Washington Post would have higher standards than the garbage you put out sometimes. The only conclusion that can be reached is you have an agenda, or you are not ready for prime time. Just my OPINION.
