Refuting Right-Wing Narrative, James Foley Foundation Says It Rescinded Pompeo Award Over Handling of Khashoggi Murder

Jake Johnson, staff writer

The foundation named after slain journalist James Foley said it rescinded an award for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo because of the Trump administration's refusal to hold the Saudi government accountable for the brutal murder of Jamal Khashoggi, refuting the right-wing narrative that the move was forced by the organization's "

Looks like more acclaim or at least notoriety can be gleaned from a rescinded award that the initial award.

"The foundation’s statement came after conservative Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard claimed—citing anonymous sources—that the non-partisan organization’s media partners “promised to boycott the event if Pompeo got the award.”

"Bedard’s assertion was then picked up by other right-wing media outlets, including Newsmax and [ The Daily Caller .](https://dailycaller.com/2019/04/03/pompeo-freedom-award-hostage-foley-backlash Interesting source for backlash though.

The reach of the billionaire funded right wing fascist media is far wider than anything true left reality based journalsim can reach.

Having Pompeo receive a “Freedom Award” of any sort is like Barack Obama receiving a “Peace Award”.

Such awards lose their meaning. It’s good they rescinded the award for Pompeo the Hun.

Elections have consequences.

And G.W. Bush getting an award for helping veterans after sending thousands to their death for immoral, bogus reasons.

Yeah and in a few years, trumps will get an award for being the most honest and principled human being in the history of the universe. The inmates are running the asylum, and it would seem, the cavalry is nowhere to be found. Truly incredible.
