Jillian Rayfield of Salon.com set out to create a false narrative about Breitbart News Network’s “The Uninvited” CPAC event, complete with accusations of “Islamaphobia,” before the panelists spoke a single word, according to an eyewitness.
Rayfield (pictured) sat next to fellow Salon reporter Alex Seitz-Wald in the event. What they did not know was right next to both of them was Patrick Poole, an investigative reporter for the conservative outlet PJ Media.
Breitbart News caught up with Poole on the way out of the event, and he told this reporter that he personally witnessed Rayfield framing her story before the panel discussion she was writing about even began.
“Before the panel discussion, they had already had their posts prepared,” Poole said. “I was sitting directly beside them and she had her article on ‘Islamaphobia is alive and well at CPAC’ post all ready to go.”
Poole said this is an example of Salon’s far left-wing writers fabricating a “pre-determined narrative” aimed at undermining the substance of arguments made during the event.
