I was shocked to hear this morning that conservative Bre Payton had unexpectedly passed away at the young age of 26-years-old. Bre was a Fox News commentator and a writer for The Federalist and other big media outlets. She passed away in San Diego after contracting the H1N1 flu along with meningitis.
Payton was found unconscious Thursday by Morgan Murtaugh, a friend of hers who just ran for Congress in San Diego and lost. Morgan called 911 but Payton was already in a coma and it was too late. Murtaugh asked people to reach out to God, saying, “Please if you’re religious at all, send prayers this way. We really need them.” Unfortunately, Payton was already beyond help and had passed.

Bre “brightened the lives of everyone around her.” As The Federalist, Fox News and conservatives were shocked by Bre’s sudden passing, the sick liberal media was already celebrating.
From I Love My Freedom:
One would like to think that the virulent hate for conservatives on the left (and especially successful conservative Christian women) would be temporarily paused out of respect for the deceased and her family but then again, the loss of the 2016 election permanently drained whatever vestiges of decency from people who had little to begin with.
The left-wing activist media was quick to take their sick cheap shots at Payton including the vaunted Associated Press which did so under the pretense of publishing her obituary.

According to Newsbusters, “AP Publishes Garbage Obituary of The Federalist’s Bre Payton”:
The AP story followed the normal structure for a news obituary with a lede that described her as “a writer for the conservative news site The Federalist and a frequent guest on the Fox News Channel and other media outlets,” when she died, and her age.
The next two paragraphs stated how the news was announced as (by The Federalist and Payton’s friend Morgan Murtaugh, a former OANN reporter and former GOP congressional candidate) plus the alleged cause of death.
From paragraph five to the end, everything was well and good, but the fourth graph is where the AP lost all sense of decency, boiling down Payton’s work this way:
In recent appearances on Fox News, Payton had condemned what she called “fake news” media coverage of President Donald Trump and “sexist and bigoted” coverage of first lady Melania Trump.
Numerous friends and fellow colleagues in conservative media (including this one) have pointed out, the AP reducing Payton’s professional work to that lone, measly, tasteless sentence marked the epitome of unprofessionalism.
If the AP had checked her bio on The Federalist, they’d find a slew of places to mention: “She has appeared on Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, NPR, BBC World News, among others, and her work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Daily Signal, and WORLD Magazine, to name a few.”
The AP’s despicable treatment of Bre did not go unnoticed or unchampioned on social media. They do this every time they get a chance when harm comes to a conservative. They act like vultures.

The tacky @AP report on death of Bre Payton underscores just how deeply the mainstream media resents conservatives. In wars countries occasional call for cease fires for a number of reasons but the mean-spirited, vitriolic hate-fueled attacks by the mainstream media never stop.

Though the AP reduced @Bre_payton 's journalistic output to "condemned fake news media," she should be remembered as a prolific writer as well as a pundit; see her fantastic article on the homeless problem in DC's NoMa, where both of us lived https://t.co/SAUjZiCld5

There is not 1 word on CNN's website about Bre Payton's passing today.
CNN's 2 media "reporters" (Darcy/Stelter) have not tweeted 1 word on it.
CNN reported on KTLA's Chris Burrous' death today, why not someone from a conservative publication who was a regular Fox News guest? pic.twitter.com/COSCiMJbdb

Daily reminder that the far Left wants you and your family dead if you are conservative
They are Mao’s Red Guards come to America
Don’t believe me? Look how they are reacting to Bre Payton

Rest in peace Bre… you will be greatly missed not only for your writing, your professionalism, and your gifted input but for your kind presence and love of life. The left can never take that away from you as much as they might try for cheap political points. Shame on them.
