AP Fires Reporter Who Claimed "Russian Missiles" Hit Poland

The Associated Press has FIRED Investigative reporter James LaPorta over his botched story that "Russian Missiles" hit Poland.

That story, widely repeated across the internet and on TV, almost triggered World War 3.   It was taken offline the following day and replaced with an editor’s note admitting the single source was wrong and that “subsequent reporting showed that the missiles were Russian-made and most likely fired by Ukraine in defense against a Russian attack.”

The piece, which was originally co-bylined with John Leicester (who is still working at the AP), attributed the information to a single “senior U.S. intelligence official,” despite the AP’s rule that it “routinely seeks and requires more than one source when sourcing is anonymous.”

An AP spokesperson did not comment on LaPorta’s ouster but instead wrote: “The rigorous editorial standards and practices of The Associated Press are critical to AP’s mission as an independent news organization. To ensure our reporting is accurate, fair and fact-based, we abide by and enforce these standards, including around the use of anonymous sources.”

LaPorta, a former Daily Beast contributor, declined to comment.

There's a lot of talk online about a coup might be in the works on shooting it's coming from MSNBC news online reading articles the most likely time that would happen would be our Christmas Eve to our New Year's Eve and Mr Turner will be on vacation won't be covered any of it it looks like so I personally think Russia can't fight his way through a paper bag and Mr Turner's been told that and Russia's unable to harm us for Mr Turner to take off that most important week in world history Christmas is the biggest news making it might be when biden's told to go home and we get a new president

I got deja vu about Mr chair taking two weeks off from Christmas Eve to after New years it seems like a little before myself and he's done this before well I'm going to tell all you people he's got to stick his in Pennsylvania in that nuclear attack could happen at any moment and that he report his house and made it a bug out and most likely time that this country will come underneath a Putin nuclear song would be on Christmas that's right folks Christmas or anywhere from Christmas Eve to New years Eve that's the most likely scenario there Christmas comes after hours well somebody would have to think more about your heathens and that he's the hand of God to do that I'm thinking about not coming to this website anymore and not listening to him to take off the most too boring us weeks in the world was nothing to do so play along with your presence and this year I won't be having any presents there's nothing like it was in the fast for me

This was to be the big one!
A chance for AP to be the first to report this fiction while furthering the narrative that Russia needs to be reined-in.
It might mean great things for those involved in making the report.
Maybe a Pulitzer, or maybe fame like Woodward and Bernstein.
If it resulted in a war with Russia like the U.S. government appeared to be trying to start, well so-much the better!
But then it happened....The masters of these propaganda puppets informed them that war was not really in the cards right now.
And so the story bombed.
AP's credibility suffered and at-least one career at AP was cut-short.
But it will happen again.
Bad people will continue to do bad things for fame and money.
This time they didn't get away with it.

Quoting sixshots:

AP's credibility suffered and at-least one career at AP was cut-short.

It was a short career. He's worked for AP since 2020. Prior to that, he was a freelance journalist and regular contributor to the Daily Beast (where he perhaps learned bad habits)...

"LaPorta, who had worked at AP since 2020, said Tuesday that “I would love to comment on the record, but I have been ordered by the AP to not comment.”

"James LaPorta is an award-winning journalist and photographer based in Jacksonville, North Carolina. He is a former U.S. Marine and a veteran of the Afghanistan war.
Mr. LaPorta's most recent work has gained national attention, including being cited by members of the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Notably, his reporting on the Marines United explicit photo sharing scandal inside the U.S. Armed Forces led to a feature article about him in The New York Times, which also ran in the print edition of The Boston Globe. Mr. LaPorta would later testify in front of the Congressional Women's Caucus about his reporting while on assignment for The Daily Beast.

As a freelance journalist, "

AP is a propaganda outlet of the Cabal. What's the reporter's name...La Porta...sounds goyish. Poor schmuck got sacrificed probably due to office politics and it buys a little cover for the agitprop bureau. He was just trying to please his superiors. Maybe the editor has a nephew or brother in law who needed this guy's job.

A little off topic my apologies however a 7.0 earthquake has Struck the Solomon Islands. Very Shallow at 10 km and a Tsunami warning was issued yesterday.

Also this makes 5 EARTHQUAKES in the past 10 days over 7.0 located in the same Southwest Pacific Region.

3 Earthquakes in Fiji at 7.0 magnitude

1 Earthquake in Tonga at 7.3 magnitude

1 Today Solomon Islands at 7.0 magnitude


This will continue and worsen into the NORTH AMERICA REGION SOON.

# RE: ShadesofGreenjrd803 2022-11-22 12:27
I have been trying to follow Dutchsinse on YouTube - he has been rather accurate in forecasting areas that will get seismic activity (earthquakes or volcanoes erupting, although he does not explicitly forecast anything volcanic, but at times eruptions occur where an earthquake forecast is).

Also the increased solar activity may be helping things to become more active.
# Shades of GreenBoss 2022-11-22 11:45
The New Madrid fault has been active a couple of times during my life time (75 years). That could break apart the US: one chunk each side of the Mississippi, even tho' it is drying up. FYI: consider moving to the Appalachian plateau; but not near North Carolina hill country that has had some quakes in the last few years. Pray and God bless ya'all.
Also FYI: The Appalachian plateau runs from north MS, north ALABAMA, north GA thru eastern TENN, KY, SE Ohio, and about 2/3 of PA (leaving out eastern 1/3). It covers most of Southern NY, and the Shenadoah hills of VA, and the piece of MD touching West VA. All of West VA is the Appalachian plateau. That is where I live and where Hal now lives....Few big cities except Pittsburg and Chattanooga I think. Self-sufficiency is expected by the everyday folks.
+1 # RE: Shades of Greenjrd803 2022-11-22 12:44
An interesting novel about a future New Madrid earthquake is "The Rift" by Walter Jon Williams.

It is, IMO, an engrossing story and combines scientific accuracy and numerous historical accounts of the 1811/12 New Madrid earthquake. The historical accounts are very interesting in themselves.

# Shadesofgreenjake 2022-11-22 12:24
I agree it is important to become self-Sufficient as I have been monitoring these events since July. I have discovered over 14 Volcanoes have erupted around the ring of fire regions and has gradually moved Westward into Europe etc. The EARTH is not the Same since January 2022. There is something happening DEEP within the EARTH that has caused these chain reactions of volcanic eruptions and now MAJOR EARTHQUAKES Southeast Pacific Region. This all START AFTER JULY 18-21 2022.

I have heard of reports from Scientists where the North Pole magnetic field has somehow weekend ( Ruptured ) this past January.

This may explain the kinetic energies that have affected the GEO-PLATES through-out the World.

I am not sure how this will turn out for all of us but to be honest this doesn't look good at all. Too many coincidences have occured in the past 10 days now.

I am hearing now of reports that Mt Rainier (Volcano where Seattle is at its base) has swarms of Tremors in the past 10-18 days.

It MAY erupt sometime in the next 8 days.

And what about the caribou dancing in
What about the thousands of sheep
dancing in circles?
And the cats going crazy in south America?
And the cattle dancing in circles?
No explanation.
+2 # RE: Yes, 2022-11-22 13:35
You mention cats and it reminded me of an incident several years ago. Our neighbor at the time was having frequent rows with his wife, nothing violent just noisy out in their backyard .
One afternoon we were chatting out in our backyard on our lounge chairs and our beagle came running over, crawled under the chair and began howling a mournful sound. Not 5 minutes later we heard a single gunshot…our neighbor killed himself. Somehow our dog sensed the tragedy moments before it occurred.

We also had horses when we lived on a Christmas tree farm and a wrangler friend of ours was helping us understand our animals. One comment he made comes to mind. When horses herd up they synchronize their heartbeats. If one horse’s heartbeat speeds up it alerts the herd to trouble. A horse can hear its owner’s heartbeat from four feet way.
Animals are very alert to change/trouble.
# RE: Yes, shadesofgreen...jrd803 2022-11-22 12:31
See the book "When the Snakes Awake" by Helmut Tributsch. He has interesting information on earthquake precursors such as you mention.

# Precursors, shadesofgreen ?Doug Brown 2022-11-22 13:17
The circling animals being seen as
precursors to earthquakes?
As logical an explanation as any.
Thank you for the reference.

The aim, it would seem, is to have Russia exhaust military resources and men then Nato rises up and pounces to finish off the prey and claim the prize. Did this sacked journalist overestimate the readiness of Nato or misunderstand the intentions of Zelensky's claim as a signal that it was time? Who knows.

If NATO was itching to get involved, this was a golden opportunity. Why did they walk it back? What we do know is this group hasn't suddenly been stricken with the urge to do the right thing. The only thing I can think of is they weren't ready. Curious to see what ideas this thread generates.
+1 # What I don't get....dave0975644 2022-11-22 08:20
about the whole setup is:

The US/NATO have been trying to provoke Russia
and maybe others to use a tactical nuke to justify
a NATO invasion which will become WWIII - they
have been doing this practically since the beginning
of the war in Feb or before... yet given the
perfect setup for their plan they pussied out
pretty quickly with even Biden saying it wasn't
confirmed in his first public statement...
