Another example of the fakestream media propaganda machine attempting to prevent the people from learning the truth. PizzaGate is very dark and it is very real. ~Shep

CBS46 evening anchor Ben Swann survived last week’s “Pizzagate” story and will return on air on Monday, January 30.
He typically co-hosts the evening news at 5, 6 and 11 but has been off air since late last week. Sharon Reed and Tracye Hutchins, the other co hosts, have been covering for him while he’s been out.
News director Frank Volpicella told CBS46 staff at a recent morning meeting that he himself took responsibility for the “Pizzagate” story airing and told staff of Swann’s imminent return.
UPDATE: About an hour after I posted this story, Swann posted this on his Facebook page, which he said will be deleted on Tuesday:
Hey guys, everyone is asking if things are OK. They are. I will be heading back to CBS46 on Monday but there are going to be some changes. The biggest one will be that this social page will go dark f/n on Tzuday [sic], Feb 1. We’ve been building this project for 6 years and those who have come to know me.. I hope you have also come to trust me.
Volipicella and general manager Mark Pimental did not respond to requests for comment and when I tried to catch them in person at the CBS46 building in Midtown, I was told at 2 p.m. by the receptionist that they were not there.
Swann’s “Reality Check” story about Pizzagate aired on Tuesday, January 17 and recycled “clues” many alt-right message board sleuths thought revealed a child prostitution ring at a D.C. pizza place linked indirectly to a Hillary Clinton aide. Nobody has definitively pinned this down as a real thing and Swann wondered why there had been no official investigation. He did not appear to have done any independent reporting or even attempted to localize the story to Atlanta.
His video garnered the attention of Media Matters Wednesday morning. (He referenced Media Matters, since its founder once dated the pizza place owner.) I picked the story up soon after, followed by a few other media sites. But it only went viral when The Daily Beast did a piece which placed a tin foil hat on top of Swann’s head.
Soon after, Swann was taken off air.
