The Daily Beast is a liberal website run by far-left anti-Tea Party activist John Avlon.[1] Founded by liberal media figure Tina Brown, the website has become infamous for its history of false reporting. On January 30, 2015, The Daily Beast declared that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney had decided to run for the U.S. presidency in 2016. The website was left humiliated less than two hours later when Governor Romney announced that he had decided to not run for the presidency.[2] On February 27, 2015, The Daily Beast claimed that Wisconsin governor Scott Walker's budget would cut sexual assault reporting from the state's universities. The next day, that claim was proven to be a lie and as a result the website retracted the claim, although the author of the claim refused to apologize.[3] In the immediate aftermath of the San Bernardino terrorist attack, The Daily Beast falsely identified the brother of one of the terrorists as one of the perpetrators.[4]

The Daily Beast reported the whereabouts of Gonzalo Lira to the Ukrainian gestapo;[5] Lira was disappeared on April 15, 2022.

The executive editor of the website, Noah Shachtman, has claimed that anyone who stays at a hotel owned by Donald Trump or visits a resort owned by Trump is "supporting racism & neo-fascism."[6]

According to Gonzalo Lira, who was reporting from Kharkiv during the Russia-Ukraine war, Lira said:

"If ever you don't hear from me for 12 hours during this conflict, if it's 12 hours or more, assume that I've been picked up by the SBU. And assume that the people most responsible are the Daily Beast, the Daily Beast who deliberately lied about me, claiming that I'm not in Kharkov, admitted to the fact that people are looking for me and want to get a hold of me in the very hit piece that they wrote, and that they contacted the Ukrainian government to make them aware that I'm in Kharkov, make them aware of my significance, make them aware so they can send some SBU goons to get me. Understand what the Daily Beast has done. And when I said, you know, in the in the title of this that the Daily Beast wants to kill me, I'm not being hyperbolic."[7][8][9]

The SBU is the fascist Maidan regime's gestapo organization.[10]
