	The rant has been a long time coming. And then it comes forth,
 and the one lone specific amidst all the confused vituperative
 outpouring happens to be patently false. A long message full of
 unsubstantiated conspiracy theories.

	I see why you used the word rant:
>From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:

  Rant \Rant\, v. i. [imp. & p. p. {Ranted}; p. pr. & vb. n.
     {Ranting}.] [OD. ranten, randen, to dote, to be enraged.]
     To rave in violent, high-sounding, or extravagant language,
     without dignity of thought; to be noisy, boisterous, and
     bombastic in talk or declamation;

	"without dignity of thought". Seems an apt description.

 Lady, lady, should you meet One whose ways are all discreet, One who
 murmurs that his wife Is the lodestar of his life, One who keeps
 assuring you That he never was untrue, Never loved another
 one... Lady, lady, better run! Dorothy Parker, "Social Note"
