From North Korean nuclear threats to mass shootings, 2017 has been a tough year for America. It is also the year that the mainstream media finally, fully and completely jumped the shark, engaging in the sort of rank speculation they once mocked as the domain of conspiracy theorist cranks and radio talk show hosts.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was mowing his lawn when he was allegedly violently attacked by his neighbor, Rene Boucher. Boucher’s attorney told media that the attack was over a “trivial” landscaping dispute and not politically motivated. It soon emerged that Paul ‘s injuries were far more extensive than originally believed, and he had suffered six broken ribs.
