When you can’t even run a defamation campaign right
UPDATE: unfortunately, this is a defamation campaign “done right”, as there was no mix-up of people. Regardless, whatever past this man might have, he’s still not the guilty part here.

After the United Airlines thing (article if you missed it here), you might have seen some press outlets run bullshit articles like these:
You know, the usual racist behaviour in these kind of situations, white people who go on killing sprees get “he was a really nice man, but mentally disturbed?? no idea” while everyone else gets “HE WAS NO ANGEL!!!”
Here’s the thing though.
This is the guy the smear articles are talking about.
This is the guy who was dragged off the plane.
See the difference?
David A. Dao vs. David T. D. Dao.
United Airlines can’t even run a smear campaign properly. Two Asian doctors, registered in different states, and they manage to do this.
Hopefully those sleazy press outlets get hit with libel lawsuits!
EDIT: And of course, it goes without saying that even IF the accusations were true, that it’s completely irrelevant to what happened on the plane.
