An Un-Fake Analysis of Fake News and Fake News Apologists [Updated]

Fake News is any news which is factually incorrect or spun in such a manner as to obscure the actual truth. The vast majority of Fake News reported via the Lame Stream Media is of the latter variety, or a re-report of rumor or innuendo reported by a different outlet.

In short most news as reported by the LSM is at best only partially true.

As an example, let us take the ongoing corruption trial of Senator Robert Menendez (D-FL).

In keeping with IowaHawk‘s guide to understanding news coverage:

JOURNALISM IS ABOUT COVERING IMPORTANT STORIES. WITH A PILLOW, UNTIL THEY STOP MOVING.

It should thus not surprise anyone that the LSM have been going out of their way to avoid reporting that for the first time in 36 years a U. S. Senator is standing trial in a criminal court. That no doubt has a lot to do with the accused being a Democrat Senator on trial for official corruption. The Tired Gray Crone of Gotham wrote an entire article on the matter (since stealth ammended) which failed to mention Senator Menendez’s party affiliation at all, while NBC reported the accused was a Republican. Not to be outdone, the Hill framed the story as the trial judge unfairly depriving NJ voters of Senatorial Representation.

These are the shapes and forms of Fake News. They are many and varied, and all are adequately explained if one considers the LSM as a whole to be Democratic Operatives with Bylines.

Beware of Narratives and Misinformation

By Victor Davis Hansen, TownHall

There is not much left to the media myth of James Comey as dutiful FBI director, unjustly fired by a partisan and vindictive President Donald Trump. A closer look suggests that Comey may have been the most politicized, duplicitous and out of control FBI director since J. Edgar Hoover.

    Or like our former commenter Bruce, who insisted over a nd over that vote fraif did both exist and if it did it was so inconsequential that it never affected three outcome.

    Newly available data is casting doubt on the integrity of the presidential election in New Hampshire in 2016, which Hillary Clinton won by just over 2,700 votes.

    Over 6,000 voters in New Hampshire had used same-day voter registration procedures to register and vote simultaneously for president

    Not only did it decide the presidential election but it also decided the Senate race.

    Fake news tells us it never happens. Fake news fails to report it so we can decide for ourselves what is going on.

    • Who? And what on earth is “vote fraif”?

    I could go on. But I’ll leave you with this quote from the morning morons at MSNBC’s morning joe.

    Mika Brzezinski: “Well, I think the dangerous edges here are that he’s trying to undermine the media, trying to make up his own facts, and it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he could control exactly what people think…and that is our job.”
