NBC News released two propaganda pieces this week designed to associate concerns about sexual abuse of children and abuses of political power with violence and the so-called “Satanic Panic” of the 1980s. Derrick Broze breaks down how these hit pieces fail to accurately report the truth.
On Wednesday, NBC News published two articles from two different journalists with the apparent goal of painting those who question the results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, or those with stories of child sexual abuse, as dangerous people – potentially murderers – lying in wait.
One of the articles focuses on an investigation announced by the Utah County Sheriff’s office (UCSO) in late May regarding claims of “ritualized child sexual abuse“. NBC News Senior Reporter Brandy Zadronsky attempts to frame this investigation as part of ongoing QAnon fantasies, itself an alleged revival of the so-called “Satanic Panic” of the 1980s. In the second article, titled Michigan man who killed his wife went down a ‘rabbit hole’ of conspiracy theories after Trump’s 2020 loss, daughter says, NBC reports a Michigan man has been arrested for killing his wife. The man apparently also followed QAnon theories.
While these articles attempt to dismiss concerns held by a growing portion of the population — specifically, fears of organized abuse of children and a “secret government” within the government — they fail miserably. This report is a response to NBC News and their “journalists” who chose to publish this clear propaganda.

Igor Lanis, a 53-year-old Michigan man, has been arrested for shooting his wife, Tina Lanis, and daughter Rachel Lanis. Tina Lanis did not survive the shooting, but Rachel Lanis will survive the attempted murder by her father. The Oakland County Sheriff’s Department declined to speculate on the potential motive at the moment.
