COUNTDOWN’S Letter lady, Rachel Riley pushed FAKE NEWS about Politicalite accusing the website of reporting false news, to try to defund real working-class news.
It seems she’s good with numbers, but terrible at honest news.
Riley wrote: “Politicalite is a site which demonises immigrants and Muslims, promotes Tommy Robinson and has abused the story of a sick baby to push anti-vaccine propaganda.” to try to defund the site, and stop a company advertising with us.
Using the tragic case of Alfie Evans, Riley claimed we pushed Anti-Vaxx propaganda, despite this website never promoting such stories.
She also failed to realise that Politicalite was set up and is ran by a mixed race man who is decended from Jamaican Wind Rish Migrants.
We responded: “Politicalite is ran by a mixed-race descendant of immigrants… we did not push anti-Vax agenda… we supported a sick child and the parents of Alfie …. maybe you need to get your facts before spreading fake news Rachel! ?Jordan James added.”
Politicalite have contacted Riley’s representatives for comment.
