BUT YOU CAN'T DETOXIFY THE BUBBLE:

'The Hill' Is Reviewing Solomon's Ukraine Conspiracy Stories (Media Matters November 19, 2019)

Fox News contributor John Solomon, formerly a columnist and executive vice president for The Hill, has emerged in the impeachment hearings as a key figure who pushed conspiracy theories that President Donald Trump used to pressure Ukraine to investigate a political opponent. The Hill's Editor-in-Chief Bob Cusack announced on Monday morning that the outlet will be reviewing and correcting Solomon's columns as necessary.

In his columns, Solomon repeatedly laundered disinformation from Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to push the false narrative that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 presidential election on Democrats' behalf, smeared former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, and falsely claim that former Vice President Joe Biden withheld aid to Ukraine to shut down an investigation into a company his son Hunter was associated with . Multiple witnesses have testified in the impeachment inquiry that Solomon's columns contained information that was made up and were based on "non-truths."

Dude's gotta make a buck and the Trumpbots are willing dupes.
