The NYT wrote these two stories about the same company 24 hours apart. What a time to be alive.
· · Oct 5, 2022 ·

This is, perhaps, one of the greatest ironic self-owns in the history of the internet.

These 2 headlines from The New York Times appeared just 24 hours apart:

They even used the exact same picture of the dude for both stories!

On Monday, Eugene Yu, president of the election software company Konnech, is the tragic target of election denial conspiracy theories and on Tuesday he's charged and arrested in freaking LA where they don't even care about crime.

This is absolutely unreal.

Here's the insane conspiracy theory, as reported in The New York Times:

At an invitation-only conference in August at a secret location southeast of Phoenix, a group of election deniers unspooled a new conspiracy theory about the 2020 presidential outcome.

Using threadbare evidence, or none at all, the group suggested that a small American election software company, Konnech, had secret ties to the Chinese Communist Party and had given the Chinese government backdoor access to personal data about two million poll workers in the United States, according to online accounts from several people at the conference.

In the ensuing weeks, the conspiracy theory grew as it shot around the internet. To believers, the claims showed how China had gained near complete control of America's elections. Some shared LinkedIn pages for Konnech employees who have Chinese backgrounds and sent threatening emails to the company and its chief executive, who was born in China.

"Might want to book flights back to Wuhan before we hang you until dead!" one person wrote in an email to the company.

This poor man and his family are accused, based on "no evidence at all" that Eugene Yu sold information on millions of poll workers to China!

What an insane batcrap crazy theory. THANK GOODNESS the NYT is here to set the record straight!

And why was Eugene Yu, the poor target of those crazy election deniers arrested?

From the second NYT story:

The company has been accused by groups challenging the validity of the 2020 presidential election with storing information about poll workers on servers in China. The company has repeatedly denied keeping data outside the United States, including in recent statements to The New York Times.

Mr. Gascón's office said its investigators had found data stored in China. Holding the data there would violate Konnech's contract with the county.

Eric Gascón – the Soros DA in Los Angeles no less! – has found compelling evidence enough to arrest Yu for this data theft.

We used to say the difference between a conspiracy and a fact is about two weeks, but the NYT has accelerated that timeline to closer to two minutes.

What a time to be alive.
