    I wonder if Newsweek is happy or regrets giving Niall the platform. On one hand, he has brought in the page views and publicity; on the other one, the original article and his response to criticisms are so bereft of any semblance of logic or facts it all but destroys the brand. One thing is for sure, Niall is doubling down on the lies and disinformation and will use it to get himself a nice big chunk of wingnut welfare.
