CBS Affiliate Reignites Debunked Pizzagate Conspiracy Theory
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Huffington Post

Pizzagate was the false claim that the Comet Ping Pong pizza place in Washington D.C. was at the center of a pedophilia ring linked to the Hillary Clinton campaign. But on Tuesday night, Meredith-owned CBS46 ran a report full of recycled Internet rumors about the restaurant. Reporter Ben Swann cited the WikiLeaks release of hacked emails from Clinton campaign chief John Podesta heavily throughout his segment. In all, WikiLeaks dumped around 50,000 email messages, and it was from those emails that the claims that John Podesta may be part of a child sex-trafficking ring come from, Swann said. However, moments later he added: To be clear, not one single email in the Podesta emails discusses child sex trafficking or pedophilia. Swann claimed strangely worded emails could be code language used by pedophiles, and repeated much of the conspiracy theories featured by conservative radio host Alex Jones and various online forums. For all that is here, there has not been one single public investigation of any of this, Swann said. Not from local police, not from the FBI, no one. And that has to be the big question. Swanns boss defended his latest report. I know he was meticulous with his search for facts, CBS46 news director Frank Volpicella told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Note: Ben Swann was removed from the show shortly after this report, and his social media accounts went strangely silent. Watch his controversial Pizzagate report on this webpage. The media has slammed Pizzagate as fake news, yet if you look without bias, there is tremendous solid evidence suggesting something very fishy is going on. See this webpage for lots more.
