Launched in March 2019, Summit News is a far right conspiracy website. Like most questionable sources this website does not have an about page nor disclosure of ownership. The primary writer appears to be Paul Joseph Watson, who is a former editor for the conspiracy website Infowars.

Well, I'd say that the text of the twitter post seems right on point. Just because you don't like the source doesn't make it wrong.

Hell, even CNN get's it right once in a while.

Talk about bullshit. From the BBC article YOU posted:

Police arrested the man, 19, for seven counts of alleged arson in an area south of Sydney, New South Wales (NSW).

The fire service there described the alleged acts as the "ultimate betrayal" to crews already under immense strain.

Six people have died and over 650 homes have been lost in bushfires which have ravaged the east coast since September.

The man is not accused over those tragedies.


Better luck next time?

Really? Does Conrad Black publish this website? Alt-right propaganda. When posting arguments to favor you should read the articles first.

And the Australian shows up as a error 404.

one of the articles posted was about that guy, that added to the fires count.

the other article, which you conveniently didnt discuss lays this out there for you "Around 85 per cent of bushfires are caused by humans either deliberately or accidentally starting them, according to Dr Paul Read, co-director of the National Centre for Research in Bushfire and Arson."

if youre gonna attack the argument, at least use all the facts presented instead of cherry picking one incident.

So, google for yourself. There are literally dozens of stories that support the arson problems in Australia. You stated the source was fake news, clearly it is not since the facts are clear. So why not just try to accept that this has nothing to do with Alt Right conspiracy, Donald Trump, Conrad Black or Alex Jones. So is it your premise that Arson isn't he cause? If not then what? Seriously, are you capable of actually accepting that this isn't a left right thing or that just because you don't like a source that it can't possibly be correct.

I discussed all the articles. None made the case for the majority of the fires being man made.

Plus, starting the fire is only step one. WHy haven't the fires been this bad in the past? People start fires every year.

Again, the text of the post was the fact that there have been 200 arrests for Arson, you call that fake news. It is not.

Fires don't just start from spontaneous combustion. They are started often by lightning or by humans either accidentally or intentionally. Climate Change doesn't' start fires. There is lots of literature out there regarding a dry spring in Australia and the long history or bushfires being a natural occurrence there, so perhaps combined with the excessive number of arsonists maybe that's an explanation.....but really that wasn't even remotely close to why you referred to the post as fake news.

Reread my initial post on this subject. I called out summit news as fake. As I do noq, and Conrad Black. I have yet to see a successful rebuttal.
