ESPN is running a 30 For 30 documentary entitled Fantastic Lies at 9pm EST to mark the 10th anniversary of the Duke Lacrosse Hoax.
For reference, here’s my 2006 VDARE article on what remains the best known hate hoax, even though it’s still not well enough known … For example, virtually nobody in November 2014 said, “Doesn’t this Sabrina Rubin Erdely story about the fraternity gang rape initiation on broken glass at Virginia smell like it’s motivated by the same hatreds as the Duke frenzy in 2006?”
Here’s an interesting historical footnote about how the Duke lacrosse hoax has had influence across the decade. Ann Coulter tweets:
The hiring of Miller is the latest sign that Trump’s tight-knit campaign team is expanding as he continues to lead GOP polls and planning to release more policies in the coming weeks as the primary race unfolds.
Miller, 30, is a graduate of Duke University who began his career as press secretary for various lawmakers, including former House members Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and John Shadegg (R-Ariz.). He began to work with Sessions in 2009 and has been an adviser and confidant to him for the past seven years.
Miller won notice especially in 2013 during the immigration debate when he guided Sessions through countless interviews as the senator opposed the “Gang of Eight” and the push for comprehensive-immigration reform by many Republicans.
When Sessions and Trump began to build a relationship last year, he asked Miller to work with Trump’s campaign as it thought through its immigration position. That experience laid the groundwork for Miller’s hire, a Trump associate said.
