VERY FAKE NEWS — Sheriff Edwards (Again) Fact Checks Tribune Reporter Seaborn Larson

Great Falls Tribune “reporter” Seaborn Larson seems to have it out for Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edwards.

After we objectively pointed to an earlier instance of Larson’s Fake News, said Tribune reporter grew angsty and angry, and lambasted E-City Beat in an amusingly shameless and unhinged Twitter meltdown — again and again.

Not to be outdone, however, Larson continued to perpetuate even more Fake News against Sheriff Edwards today. Edwards first corrected Larson on Twitter, and then more substantively on Facebook.

Essentially, and even on the most rudimentary point perhaps possible, Larson alleged that Edwards had “picked up” paperwork to file for re-election as Sheriff. According to Edwards, that was not the case. Larson blamed his Fake News on “bad sources,” but it does beg the question: what has prevented Larson, or anyone from the the Great Falls Tribune, from simply picking up the damn phone and asking Edwards if he has filed to run for re-election or not?

Or, is Larson simply committed to smearing Edwards’ name to the nth degree?

What do you think?

  1. Larson must have absent the day the J-School taught students that accurate news requires CREDITABLE sources. Also, it’s lazy news gathering to not contact Edwards directly.


  2. Cops don’t lie………..and cops don’t cover for each other…………….bwahaha! Geez. Naive much? Dude had a gun. End of story. NOT fake news, just a bad day for Bob, who I think is probably a decent guy. But lying for him makes him look like an a hole!


  3. Sewborn Larson is a dishonest piece of garbage. He slandered Felipe Torres from the band The Cold Hard Cash Show with completely false facts and intentional word play to sensationalize his garbage reporting so badly that Torres’s career ended. The last I heard there is serious lawsuits planned against Larson and a documentary on the unreal smear campaign against Torres. Heads will roll and hopefully Larson will be over for good along with several players in this saga. Seaborn is a hack.
