As Twitchy reported, the Internet Archive’s Chris Butler wrote in a blog post Tuesday, “When we reviewed the archives [of Joy Reid’s old blog], we found nothing to indicate tampering or hacking of the Wayback Machine versions,” on which Internet detectives have found plenty of anti-gay posts.
The Internet Archive says that it has found NO EVIDENCE to substantiate any of her claims. https://t.co/x3TC5u0j06

Mediaite had reported that Reid admitted that the anti-LGBT posts came from her blog, but “were added by nefarious hackers after she had the site shut down.” That claim doesn’t seem to have panned out, though.
Speaking of old posts, it didn’t take long for people to track down this post from Reid in 2016 that did not age well at all.
Trump's pick for Deputy National Security Advisor has deleted her Twitter account, Facebook account and shut down her website.

Yeah, you can find some pretty incriminating stuff using that Wayback Machine.
Oh dear, Joy. This did not age well.

Blame Putin? Wayback Machine finds no evidence that anti-gay content on Joy Reid's blog was 'fraudulent' https://t.co/5ABC5RA0em
