Late last month, Virginia legislators tried to expand abortion access with a long-shot bill—HB —that would strike down two medically-unnecessary restrictions. Paranoid theories and deliberately misleading narratives have thrived on far-right message boards for years. But thanks to their already-high profiles and the fact that their videos carefully skim the edges of conspiracy, few of the reactionary stars are likely to be affected. Perhaps the most prominent example of their power came last summer, when news outlets including Vox and the Times scrambled to debunk a conspiracy theory that white South African farmers were being murdered by the hundreds in so-called hate crimes. What caught the mainstream media off-guard was the abrupt rise of the preposterous story. In August, the conspiracy finally went mainstream and landed on Tucker Carlson Tonight. Within a day, President Trump tweeted about it.

Stanford University has some questions to answer before Ben Shapiro lecture
Did Stanford University students or dorm staff take down posters from a conservative group and replace them with a letter criticizing conservative students? It certainly looks like it.
