‘Liar’: Right-Wing Media Falsely Smear Ellison Over Testimony On Muslim 9-11 Victim
The right-wing media is claiming that Rep. Keith Ellison made up a “phony Islamophobic story” that a Muslim first responder who died in the September 11 attacks had been subject to dark rumors that he may have been involved in the attack. In fact, numerous media outlets reported on such “unfounded speculation” from authorities and others, and that those rumors were ended for good when his body was found.
