Christina Pushaw just exposed one media outlet for lying about Governor Ron DeSantis

Jan 26, 2023

Left-wing reporters in the press constantly smear Ron DeSantis and lie about his policies.

But this time they crossed the line.

And Christina Pushaw just exposed one media outlet for lying about Governor Ron DeSantis.

During Donald Trump’s four years in office, one of the favorite tactics of the press was using “anonymous sources” to make up false allegations about him and his administration.

Now that Ron DeSantis is a rock star in the Republican Party and a potential threat to the White House in 2024, the press is using the same tactics against the Florida Governor.

On Wednesday, The Daily Beast published a hit piece on Ron DeSantis accusing him of having a “secret Twitter army of far-right influencers” and running a “bot farm” to boost his popularity.

Daily Beast reporter Jack Lahut based his entire allegations against DeSantis on anonymous “conservative influencers” who DeSantis pays to be part of his “bot farm.”

“Both sources said the idea was sold to them as being paid to boost DeSantis on social media with the help of the ‘bot farm’ to boost the reach of their content,” Lahut said. “The Republicans who were approached—and ultimately turned down the pitch—said they believe DeSantis’ campaign pays the influencers off the books or through a third-party vendor, though no one said they knew exactly how that would work or what the offer would be.”

But Lahut made a big mistake when he also lied about DeSantis Rapid Response Director Christina Pushaw.

“Pushaw, who has deep connections in right-wing media, has been reaching out – either in person or through intermediaries – to recruit conservative influencers, promising to boost their follower count through engagement with the help of an alleged ‘bot farm,’ according to three Republican influencers who received the pitch,” Lahut wrote.

In a post on Twitter, Pushaw dropped the hammer on Lahut for lying about DeSantis paying for “bot farms.”

“This is laughable even for the Daily Beast @JakeLahut, nobody received this ‘pitch’ — that’s why you have to use anonymous sources & have NO receipts,” Pushaw wrote. “@RonDeSantisFL won by 20 points. He has millions of real life supporters. No need for ‘bot farms’- do people actually do that?”

Ron DeSantis’ campaign also slammed Lahut for using anonymous sources to make up lies about the Governor, pointing to his landslide 19-point re-election victory as proof that his support is as real as it gets.

“Enthusiasm for Governor DeSantis is generated through his relentless work to keep Floridians free, not paying for retweets,” campaign spokeswoman Lindsey Curnutte told The Daily Beast. “We do not pay ‘influencers’ to tweet nor do we pay for ‘bot farms,’” she continued, before adding that “in case you need a reminder: The Governor was re-elected by a historic 19.4%, and he won in every corner of the state. He has millions of supporters and yes, many of them are on social media. This isn’t news.”

Curnutte then called out Lahut for using DeSantis to “drive clicks” to their “clickbait websites.”

The media is terrified of Ron DeSantis.

He’s a proven conservative fighter who is wildly popular with the voters.

And this latest smear is just more proof that Democrats view DeSantis as a top threat to the White House in 2024.
