Donald Trump was right. “Mainstream Media” is fake news and this shocking report proves it

Published

on

There’s no mistake when it comes to how Donald Trump feels about the Fake News Media.

And try as they may, the media just can’t seem to shake that label.

Now it turns out Donald Trump was right all along. “Mainstream Media” really is fake news and this shocking report proves it yet again.

“Hands up, don’t shoot,” never happened in Ferguson, Missouri.

But that didn’t stop the narrative from spreading throughout the news media and in Black Lives Matter protests.

Drunken Duke lacrosse players did not rape a young woman at a party.

There was no gang rape of a college co-ed at a UVA fraternity party.

And who can forget “Jimmy’s World” written by the incomparable Janet Cooke of the Washington Post who won a Pulitzer prize in 1981 for an article she wrote, which was later found to have been fabricated.

“Jimmy’s World” was a profile piece about the life of an 8-year-old heroin addict. In the article, Cooke described in great detail the “needle marks freckling the baby-smooth skin of his thin, brown arms.”

Cooke’s article engendered so much empathy among readers, including Mayor Marion Barry, that an all-out police search for the boy was organized.

The search was, of course, unsuccessful and led to claims that the story was fraudulent. Mayor Barry, responding to public pressure, lied and claimed that Jimmy was known to the city and receiving treatment. Then Jimmy was announced dead shortly thereafter.

Those are some of the most memorable fake news stories. Stories that even after they were proven to be fake, still linger in the minds of many Americans.

But as most Americans know, fake news stories from the liberal media occur every single day.

Whether its NBC editing a video to make Republicans look bad, or CNN cutting an interview to take out damaging quotes, it is a daily occurrence.

And now there is yet another example, on a grander scale.

CNN’s 2014 “Journalist of the Year” and Der Spiegel journalist Claas Relotius resigned from his job after admitting he had fabricated stories over time “on a grand scale,” the German publication reported.

Der Spiegel, in a lengthy report on its website, said that Relotius, a 33-year-old reporter, admitted he had made up material for his articles and reports.

“Claas Relotius, a reporter and editor, falsified his articles on a grand scale and even invented characters, deceiving both readers and his colleagues. This has been uncovered as a result of tips, internal research and, ultimately, a comprehensive confession by the editor himself,” Der Spiegel said.

For his part, Relotius admitted to fabricating all or parts of at least 14 stories, according to Spiegel.

Not surprisingly, the issue first came to light over a story about a vigilante group on the U.S.-Mexican border after a fellow reporter working with him began to question his reporting.

When asked about this story, CNN simply said Relotius was not employed by them.

Don’t be fooled by their silence.

The media knows what’s going on in their own inner sanctums and are frankly only upset about fake news stories when they get caught.

    Why does anyone on the left get more campaign money than the others or more delegates. Isn’t that unfair? Wouldn’t that infer winners and losers? Wouldn’t someone’s feelings get hurt?
    They should all get a participation trophy and go home. They should be redistributing their money and delegates to those that don’t have as much.

    I am a Democrat and all news must be fake because in the dictionary it specifically states ‘News – completely lied false information.’ Now granted that was Pelosi’s dictionary and for some reason it was written in pencil it still is true.

    One of the 1st Amendment rights, of course, is “freedom of thee press.” Someone should research, starting with the Federalist Papers and early court cases, if the Founders meant that “press” means “fair,” “unbiased,” “presents both sides of an issue,” or anything like that. If so, “fake news media” should be shut down.

    Until the American People wake the hell up and realize the MSM is NOT in the news business this bull schiff will continue! The MSM is, in truth, the propaganda arm of the radical left, aka today’s Demo-rat Party! Just as Pravda was the propaganda arm of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union! No difference! None! News is filtered and spun to fit the Left’s narrative! If that isn’t convenient it is ignored as any and all positive accomplishments by the President, lied about, or made up out of whole cloth as with Trump/Russian collusion, and the impeachment charges!

    I for one just wish that the White House lawyers would start prosecuting the leadership of the left for the outright lies and hate speech they continually vent. If they did, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler and all the other tunnel rats would shut up for fear of being exposed and prosecuted. The vile acts of Pelosi during the, “State Of The Union,” speech were so hateful that she should be required to answer of resign. She claims to pray for people but I doubt that her god, Satin, hears.

    Come on, we KNOW the Media never lies, that is, when their mouth is closed! I trust the Media as much as I trust a wet toilet paper bridge! I have known for many years that the media lies like Linoleum! I do NOT care that it reached 65 degrees in the arctic or that a panda bear was born in China or that Joe smegma was shot on main street or that Mary Munchkin was hit on fourth and main street! I don’t care! That’s NOT news, that fluff and filler! All one needs to KNOW is this: “the god” of this world and the prince of the power of the air are the presiding ruler of the airwaves and News Media of all types! See the two above are the same, and are KNOWN as Satan! He is “the god” of this world, which was sceeded to him at Adams fall. See Matt 4:8-10 Satan has this power and he is in charge of the Media and the financial and govt’s of this world! So, NEVER believe what they Media says, they LIE, like their father the Devil! John 8:44 KJV P.S. Muslims, in Sharia Law no#1 are “OBLIGATED” to LIE to further Allah’s commandments! (Allah=”the god”)

    Trust nobody, keep your BS detector on, use your knowledge and experience to help formulate your situational awareness. I guess that means become an informed citizen which is exactly what the democrats and the media do not want.

    News media should be held to the highest standard of truth, ANY false reporting should be charged as a crime against the people and punished by long prison terms

    I believe we need a new law. You can write fiction all you want but it must be look labeled fiction at the beginning of the article. You can write factual news stories and find out later some facts were wrong, but you must give the announcement of finding corrections front page coverage. If you label something editorial it must be labeled fiction. If you say ssd something is news or imp li y news and it is fiction you lose your license to publish and if your a writer / reporter you lost your degree.

    Basically if you make up your own stuff and you label it news or imply fact you lose your degree and right to publish unless you retract the story more vigorously then you wrote it.

    Interesting that Marion Berry was mentioned in this story since he was the D.C. mayor that was caught in a drug sting many years ago himself. I think I remember that prostitutes were involved as well. He is corrupt and he dealt in and used illegal drugs. I think he actually did some prison time over that stunt, then he was elected mayor again. Great city that Washington D.C.. Glad I don’t live there any more.

    Fake news is one thing , but when fake news is used to damage the credibility of a sitting president, I think it should be punishable by law. Where as the 1st Amendment talks about freedom of the press, it should also say fair and balanced. We should expand the definitions of defamation of character, and slander.

    I have stopped watching TV news completely and I selectively read printed media. I feel that I can’t believe what passes for “the news” these days. Too much of what is presented as news is “not-so-good fiction”

You won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard

Published

on

The war in Ukraine has sparked a global crisis with many devastating consequences.

Worse yet, the war propaganda coming from the so-called “mainstream” media is appalling.

And you won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard.

The Democrat Media Complex and the warmongers of both parties are itching for escalation in the war in Ukraine.

On the Left, Congressman Eric Swalwell floated the idea of expelling Russian students from the country.

Neoconservatives on the Right like Adam Kinzinger – whose Congressional district was gerrymandered out of existence by Illinois Democrats – wants a no-fly zone over Ukraine, and Senator Lindsey Graham called for someone in the Russian government to assassinate Vladimir Putin.

People who are calling for peace and don’t want to see brinkmanship with a nuclear power, and people who are pushing back against dangerous war propaganda have been labeled “collaborators,” and even “traitors.”

Such is the case with Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.

That’s why the harpies on The View want Carlson and Gabbard investigated and arrested by the Department of Justice.

So-called “Republican” Ana Navarro, who hasn’t espoused a real conservative opinion in a decade, argued, “I think DOJ (Department of Justice) in the same way it is setting up a task force to investigate oligarchs, should look into people who are Russian propagandists and shilling for Putin.”

The establishment is so hot for war, combating propaganda and resisting American involvement is somehow tantamount to “shilling for Putin.”

Whoopi Goldberg got in on the act and said, “They used to arrest people for doing stuff like this. If they thought you were colluding with a Russian agent. If they thought you were putting out information or taking information and handing over to Russia. They used to actually investigate stuff like this.”

Goldberg’s statement is mind-blowing considering she was highly critical of the Hollywood blacklist of the past.

There were communists in the State Department, media, entertainment, and academia that were actually collaborating with the Soviet Union, and the Left believed the McCarthy Era was the worst thing that ever happened in America.

It’s impossible to oppose McCarthyism and call for Carlson and Gabbard to be investigated and arrested.

There is no way that the panelists of The View would have been on board with arresting people who opposed the Vietnam War.

Carlson, who has the top rated show in cable news, is probably the strongest anti-war voice on television.

And Gabbard, a former Army reserve officer, became persona non grata for her anti-war positions.

The ladies of The View and the Left more broadly are exposing themselves to be authoritarians.

One journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives

Published

on

Social media companies suppressing conservative speech is getting out of hand.

Now someone is fighting back.

And one journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives.

Twitter banned former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson for supposedly spreading “misinformation” about the coronavirus vaccine.

Berenson’s “crime” was posting that the COVID vaccine did not stop transmission of the virus.

In Berenson’s lawsuit, the former New York Times reporter argues that his comments were objectively true.

Berenson also cites California law, which defines common carriers as a platform that “offers to the public to carry persons, property, or messages.”

This argument could prove vital as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas hinted in an April opinion that Big Tech companies fall under the definition of a common carrier like the phone or mail company, which would limit the ability of Big Tech to censor speech.

Berenson also argued that Twitter acted as an agent of the government to censor his speech, citing Twitter banning Berenson shortly after Joe Biden called on Big Tech companies to censor “misinformation” about the coronavirus.

“The extraordinarily close nexus between the July 2021 statements by senior executive branch officials—including President Biden himself—calling for censorship by such companies and Twitter’s corresponding immediate actions against Mr. Berenson,” the lawsuit added.

There is already established case law that the government cannot pressure private companies to carry out actions that would be unconstitutional if the government performed them.

That argument – as well as the common carrier contention – lays out two legal paths for Berenson to argue his case and potentially find a receptive audience at the Supreme Court.

Conservatives waited for years for a manner in which to secure legal recourse to Big Tech’s ideologically motivated censorship.

Thanks to Berenson’s lawsuit and Big Tech’s overreach, they may have finally found a silver bullet.

Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine

Published

on

Social media censorship is out of control.

Ever since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Big Tech began banning users for posting true information.

And now Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine.

According to a new policy implemented by Twitter, the social media platform can now impose penalties up to a permanent suspension for posting that a vaccinated individual can spread COVID.

“When Tweets include misleading information about Covid-19, we may place a label on those tweets that includes corrective information about that claim,” Twitter’s policy reads. “We may apply labels to Tweets that contain, for example . . . false or misleading claims that people who have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or symptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people.”

At the start of the pandemic, social media platforms banned users for posting that the virus likely escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.

Now Twitter is threatening to ban anyone for posting truthful information about vaccinated individuals still being able to spread COVID.

Twitter’s new policy runs contrary to Centers for Disease Control guidelines that state that “risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in fully vaccinated people cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is continued community transmission of the virus.”

In addition, Nature.com reported on a study published in October, which showed that fully vaccinated individuals possessed a lower risk of spreading COVID, but that spread was still possible and the vaccine’s protection against spread waned over time.

“The authors found that although the vaccines did offer some protection against infection and onward transmission, Delta dampened that effect. A person who was fully vaccinated and then had a ‘breakthrough’ Delta infection was almost twice as likely to pass on the virus as someone who was infected with Alpha. And that was on top of the higher risk of having a breakthrough infection caused by Delta than one caused by Alpha,” Nature.com reported.

One reason so many people do not trust either the vaccines or the authorities promising the vaccines are safe and effective is because no one allows an honest discussion of the vaccines.

Any hint that the vaccines may not be 100% perfect is labeled as misinformation, a conspiracy theory or “anti-vaxx.”

But Twitter censoring people for posting an honest fact that vaccinated people – while at lower risk – can still spread the coronavirus leaves people with the impression that elite institutions have something to hide.
