Sharyl Attkisson: Fake News is a Propaganda Campaign Started by the Left.

She nails it on how this is an agenda by the left/progressives to censor "certain views" that disagree with left-wing goals and politics.

You know, one thing is for the people who are part of the left-wing in power that want to control what news people hear, or read. But what is really bothering is at how many regular people actually agree with this obvious attempt at controlling "the free alternative press" that a lot of people, even in this website, seem to agree with.

Just because you disagree with something, you want to censor it?

Corrupt CIA Feeds Crooked Media

Isn’t it strange how the left suddenly finds the CIA to be a worthwhile organization now that it has been turned into a weapon against Trump?

We need congressional investigations into the politicization of the CIA under John Brennan, whose claim to fame has been bringing sexual “diversity” to the agency. Perhaps he should have been doing his job, which is to defend the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Reuters reports, “The overseers of the U.S. intelligence community have not embraced a CIA assessment that Russian cyber attacks were aimed at helping Republican President-elect Donald Trump win the 2016 election, three American officials said on Monday.” Reuters reported that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (or ODNI) “does not dispute the CIA’s analysis of Russian hacking operations,” but “it has not endorsed their assessment because of a lack of conclusive evidence that Moscow intended to boost Trump.”

DARK JOURNALIST: FAKE NEWS FAKE-OUT WITH ALEXANDRA BRUCE

The Corporate Media is desperately amping up their portrayal of the Alternative Media as “dangerous”, while remaining in complete denial of their inexorable plunge into disrepute and irrelevance. With this false narrative, they’re trying to mask their failed manipulation of the Presidential Election to put Neocon Hillary Clinton into the White House, by means of gaslighting the public with fake polls, biased reporting, behind-the-scenes collusion and false memes, like “FAKE NEWS”, which is summoning the power of the major social media sites and Google-YouTube to technologically enforce this bogus narrative.

Under Amazon’s CIA Cloud: The Washington Post

News media should illuminate conflicts of interest, not embody them. But the owner of the Washington Post is now doing big business with the Central Intelligence Agency, while readers of the newspaper’s CIA coverage are left in the dark.

The Post’s new owner, Jeff Bezos, is the founder and CEO of Amazon -- which recently landed a $600 million contract with the CIA. But the Post’s articles about the CIA are not disclosing that the newspaper’s sole owner is the main owner of CIA business partner Amazon.

Even for a multi-billionaire like Bezos, a $600 million contract is a big deal. That’s more than twice as much as Bezos paid to buy the Post four months ago.

Paul Craig Roberts Warns "A CIA-led Coup Against American Democracy Is Unfolding Before Our Eyes"

Trump’s people ignore Electoral College threat at their electoral peril

We'll see in a few days how the Electoral College gambit (Hillary's "Plan D" - the first three being rig the election [A], recounts [B] and Russia [C], all failed) plays out.

Anyone who has access to the Trump transition team needs to get one clear message through to them. This is, that the 2016 election is NOT YET over, and Trump could find himself on the evening of December 19th with the new President-elect, Hillary Clinton, having a majority of the votes in the Electoral College which votes that day; or having the election sent to the US House of Representative for the outcome to be determined, as happened in 1800, 1824 and 1876 (for different reasons).

"Sorry, Not Sorry" - Neither The Media Nor Their Owners Are Going To Change

The leftist heretic and popular scourge of religion Christopher Hitchens wrote in his superb Bill Clinton takedown, No One Left to Lie To, that the essence of American politics is “the manipulation of populism by elitism.” Unfortunately, this tactic didn’t work so well for the Clintons in November, as the reviled populists had the last irrational, racist, sexist, brutish and barbaric word on the matter (according to assembled liberal punditry). But the statement still rings true. This is, after all, the job description of corporate media. As The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald says, the “supreme religion of the U.S. press corps is reverence for power.” Their priesthood is a cabal of anonymous sources; their catechism is war everlasting. And so, the vulgar philistines on the plains, who foolishly prefer peaceful relations, steady work, and free healthcare to profiteering wars abroad, must be endlessly misled.

#FakeNews is the new “Weapons of Mass Destruction”

By Derrick Broze

The corporate owned media and their partners in government are working overtime to spread the fake news meme. This meme is designed to limit, and ultimately destroy, the independent and alternative media by censoring anti-establishment viewpoints.

OBAMA BLAMES ‘TALK RADIO,’ ‘DOMESTIC PROPAGANDISTS’ FOR RISE OF STATE-SPONSORED ‘FAKE NEWS’

President Obama blamed talk radio and other "domestic propagandists" for the rise of "fake news," including fictional news items published by state-sponsored actors.
"If fake news that's being released by some foreign government is almost identical to reports that are being issued through partisan news venues, then it's not surprising that that foreign propaganda will have a greater effect," Obama said. "It doesn't seem that farfetched compared to some of the other stuff folks are hearing from domestic propagandists."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: "We can't lie effectively with so many people out there telling the truth on us!"

That is the whole point, Barry. Nowhere in the Constitution is the government authorized to lie to the people.

Deal with it!

Obama blamed media for the election outcome. That's counterproductive

In his last press conference of 2016 on Friday, the outgoing president scolded the media, especially conservative outlets, and the nation’s partisan establishment, whom he blamed for paving the way for Donald Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Talk about lack of gratitude! The corporate media were on Hillary's side all along. FOX was more balanced, but was anti-Trump during the primaries!

Soros Funding Facebook’s New “Fact Checking” Group Targeting “Fake News” (Video)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or if you haven’t had any access to television, radio, or the Internet, then by now you’ve certainly heard all the fuss liberals and the mainstream media are making about what they are calling “fake news.” All we’ve heard about since Hillary’s shocking loss, is how “fake news” cannot be allowed to spread.

Just so there's no confusion, reporting that “Michael Brown had his hands up in the international signal for surrender when he was shot” was NOT fake news. Also, just to be clear, it was NOT “fake news” to report that a YouTube video was the catalyst responsible for the deadly attacks on Benghazi.

What Did The Russian People Know About The US Election Result?

The Russians knew!!...

In a wonderfully ironic and perfectly consipiratorial result, Statista's Dyfed Loesche notes that, it turns out that the Russian were best at predicting who would win the U.S. presidential elections. According to research by Ipsos, only two other countries, or rather a majority of respective citizens, were giving Trump the thumps-up before the race for the White House had started. The rest of the world was convinced that Hillary Clinton would win.

You will find more statistics at Statista

Left-leaning PolitiFact is on the newly revealed list of “fact checking” organizations Facebook will reportedly use to label “fake news” stories as they appear on the social media platform.

“We’ll use the reports from our community, along with other signals, to send stories to these organizations,” Facebook VP Adam Mosseri wrote in the Facebook news blog. “If the fact checking organizations identify a story as fake, it will get flagged as disputed and there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why.”

New York Times Will Vacate 8 Floors In Its HQ To Generate "Significant Rental Revenue"

Remember when The NYT reported that its ad hoc campaign to boost revenue by selling subscriptions in response to the vicious back and forth with Donald Trump, was said to be a smashing success? Perhaps it was subscriptions for the crossword puzzle because it appears the monetary success was not smashing enough, and according to a just released note from executives Arthur Sulzberger and Mark Thompson, the newspaper will vacate at least eight floors in its iconic building, allowing it to "generate significant rental income" because it is "frankly, too expensive to occupy this many floors when we don’t truly need them."

Maybe the lesson here is that when the newspaper business model no longer works, one can just pivot into a REIT?

The remaining staff will be consolidated on the remaining, redesigned floors in a "more dynamic, modern and open workplace, one that is better suited to the moment."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry, NYT: the independent media did this to you; our bad! :-)

Mainstream Assumptions: The CIA, Presidential Elections, And The Russian Connection

Intent and causation are important features in the course of history. The former envisages motive and hope, irrespective of outcome; the latter envisages consequence. Often, these get muddled in the jumbled process of reasoning. An intervention in the affairs of another state goes awry; a historical incident goes belly up with ferocious consequences. Suddenly, in the aftermath, we are wise, we knew better, and we can categorise plans as venal and characters as wicked.

Vanity Fair reporter is anything but in review of Trump Grill

Sometimes it's the small examples that show just how dishonest and agenda-driven media has become.

The issue extends even to restaurant reviews like the one written this week in Vanity Fair on a Donald Trump-owned restaurant in Manhattan titled, "TRUMP GRILL COULD BE THE WORST RESTAURANT IN AMERICA; And it reveals everything you need to know about our next president."

OK, so who's the food writer of this review?

Does said writer have any agenda or bias that can be found in her archive and/or Twitter feed?

The answer to the latter question is not only yes, but an argument can be made that author Tina Nguyen is one of the most biased, anti-Trump members of the media member in America, and that's really saying something.

Hypocrisy Behind the Russian-Election Frenzy

The absence of such hard evidence opens the door to what is called “confirmation bias” or analytical “group think” in which the CIA’s institutional animosity toward Russia and Trump could influence how analysts read otherwise innocent developments.

For instance, Russian news agencies RT or Sputnik reported critically at times about Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, a complaint that has been raised repeatedly in U.S. press accounts arguing that Russia interfered in the U.S. election. But that charge assumes two things: that Clinton did not deserve critical coverage and that Americans – in any significant numbers – watch Russian networks.

Paul Craig Roberts - How Come No One Involved in the Russian Hacking Conspiracy Talked?

The claims that the Russian government hacked US voting machines are absurd. Voting machines are not connected to the Internet. To hack a voting machine you have to be physically in proximity to the machine and use a hand held device. The machines can be programmed to throw the vote count to one candidate or the other, and there are other ways to interfere with elections. Possibly if a foreign power had server presence in the US, some precinct reports of results could be intercepted and altered, although a voice check over the telephone is an easy way to verify the electronic transmission. What is clear is that Russia cannot hack the voting machines.

PropOrNot All-Star Organizers: Koch, Soros, CIA, MI6, Ukraine, All Together Now

And so we are likely learning the Kochs via Soros are now integrated with larger, leftist/Ukraine/US technocratic/fascist elements ... It makes sense that PropOrNot draws resources (or inspiration) from an array of monied influences. The website itself is incredibly bold, a real statement of mighty intent.

The CIA is involved, as is obvious. And the CIA has relationships with such groups as the Institute of Modern Russia. The Boiling Frogs article excerpted at the beginning of this analysis explains that PropOrNot “has all the hallmarks of an intelligence operation.”

In fact, the strategy out of which PropOrNot was developed reportedly may stem from an article written in early 2008 by Cass Sunstein and colleague Adrian Vermeule titled simply “Conspiracy Theories.”

Sunstein and Vermeule argue the existence of conspiracy theories “may create serious risks, including risks of violence, and the existence of such theories raises significant challenges for policy and law.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think the Independent Media smeared by the Washington Post based on ProporNot have a great defamation lawsuit on their hands, and with a link to the various billionaires, the potential win for a greedy lawyer in a class action lawsuit will be huge. Many of us in the Independent Media have worked for decades building our reputations, and the harm from the Washington Post's smear job is in calculable; worth many millions per website named!

Any lawyers interested in taking the case?

US Gov’t, Oligarchs Behind Planned Fake News Flagging on Facebook

WaPo leaves out of its report that the ‘independent fact checker’, the Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, receives funding from a US government-funded group, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which award-winning, independent journalist Robert Parry and author William Blum document was created to perform tasks previously performed by the CIA.

NED was created when “[t]he Agency was getting an exceedingly bad name, and it was causing the powers-that-be much embarrassment”, notes Blum.

Heart-Wrenching Story About 5-Year-Old Boy Dying in Santa’s Arms Turns Out to be Fake News

I wonder if the national media, Facebook, and Google are all going to work together to try to shut down the purveyor of this story for publishing such false, unsubstantiated, and misleading fake news.

The story went something like this. A popular Santa in Knoxville, Tennessee Eric Schmitt-Matzen – complete with a well-groomed white beard and jolly, stocky stature – received a call from a nurse asking if he could come to the hospital and be with a terminally ill 5-year-old boy in his last remaining minutes.

Santa rushes over to the hospital just in time to be able to say a few words and hold the child before the young boy expired in his arms.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to media: You are 'increasingly not very important'

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday blasted US media outlets, contending in an interview that the power possessed by journalists had greatly diminished in recent years.

"They’re increasingly not very important," Assange said in a radio interview with Sean Hannity.

The Fox News host agreed: "So true."

Assange characterized the press as a "paper tiger" in the 2016 election and said the rise of new media had eroded the influence of traditional outlets.

"The old press is less important," he said.

Assange took particular issue with the "liberal press," blaming such journalists for a "degree of bias" that chased away readers.

"Readers see that. They feel it," he said. "They don’t like being lectured or told what to do. And they rebel against it."

PUTIN LASHES OUT AT OBAMA: "SHOW SOME PROOF OR SHUT UP"

Putin has had enough of the relentless barrage of US accusations that he, personally, "hacked the US presidential election."

The Russian president's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on Friday that the US must either stop accusing Russia of meddling in its elections or prove it. Peskov said it was "indecent" of the United States to "groundlessly" accuse Russia of intervention in its elections.

“You need to either stop talking about it, or finally show some kind of proof. Otherwise it just looks very indecent”, Peskov told Reporters in Tokyo where Putin is meeting with Japan PM Abe, responding to the latest accusations that Russia was responsible for hacker attacks.

Peskov also warned that Obama's threat to "retaliate" to the alleged Russian hack is "against both American and international law", hinting at open-ended escalation should Obama take the podium today at 2:15pm to officially launch cyberwar against Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is asking the right question here; if there is incontrovertible proof by the US government that Russia hacked the election, why are they not presenting it?!?

And I would like to politely point out to the US government, that because of all the lies they have been telling the American public - and the world - Americans have become very skeptical of any accusations coming out of the mouths of any government official.

So, to the Obama Administration, I say; either prove this allegation, or please just go away quietly!!

US GOV’T, OLIGARCHS BEHIND PLANNED FAKE NEWS FLAGGING ON FACEBOOK

Facebook is adding a new feature wherein a group that the Washington Post calls an ‘independent third party fact checker’ will decide whether stories are real or fake, and flag ones the group decides are fake.

WaPo leaves out of its report that the ‘independent fact checker’, the Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, receives funding from a US government-funded group, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which award-winning, independent journalist Robert Parry and author William Blum document was created to perform tasks previously performed by the CIA.

NED was created when “[t]he Agency was getting an exceedingly bad name, and it was causing the powers-that-be much embarrassment”, notes Blum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, this entity chosen by Facebook for its alleged "fact checking", is Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, which receives its money from a US government-funded group, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED)?

And NED was originally created to do things the CIA used to do, but, in essence, created "plausible deniability" for some of the CIA's more horrific actions, by being, technically, "one step away", so the CIA could not be blamed?!?

So folks, it's on: we are going to start to see massive censorship at Facebook, because it is a US government-funded which is doing its "fact checking."

It is very interesting to me that NED has historically been complicit in creating its own fake news, to further various government-desired agendas and outcome, including regime change in foreign countries, and the consolidation of power by US-centric regimes in those countries through practices like the use of death squads.

And Mark Zuckerberg‎, to think, for one millisecond, that you could pull a fast one on the American people, by using Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, funded by US-government sponsored NED, as your "filter" at Facebook, you have another thing coming.

So congratulations; you have now been exposed for being a superlative tool for the Deep State, by doing this.

So I will now move off your platform entirely, moving to alternatives which will not censor, and I encourage others to do so as well.

I think the best public response to this choice is a massive downturn n your company's profitability; and when people become aware of what you have done here, and they start to get angry, this may well be the outcome you see.

BEX ALERT - President Obama vows action against Russia after 2016 election hack

Russian President Vladimir Putin supervised his intelligence agencies' hacking of the U.S. presidential election and turned it from a general attempt to discredit American democracy to an effort to help Donald Trump, three U.S. officials said on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US Government Officials told us Saddam had nuclear weapons.

US Government Officials told us in 2000 that snow was a thing of the past.

US Government Officials told us the Lusitania wasn't carrying weapons.

US Government Officials told us Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.

US Government Officials told us there was a Spanish mine in Havana harbor that sank the USS Maine.

US Government Officials told us a lot of lies through the ages, so why would anyone believe them now about Russia, especially when the FBI, NSA, ODNI all reject the CIA's claim, and the CIA refuses to show any proof to the House Intelligence Committee who has oversight authority?

Syrian Catholic Patriarch: West turns blind eye toward Islam's attack on Middle East Christians

In a straight-from-the-heart cry for help for the rapidly vanishing but 2,000-year-old Christian presence in Middle East, Patriarch Ignatius Joseph told the Knights of Columbus that Saudi Arabia was funding Muslim jihadists to act out a new kind of murderous intolerance, and the Western democracies were letting them do it... “We, the Church pastors, kept warning Westerners who pretended to have the right to interfere in Syria in the name of democracy, that fomenting violence would surely lead to terrible sectarian war because of the complex religious and ethnic diversity in Syria. We knew innocent people, primarily Christians and minorities, would suffer most.”

Obama Vows Retaliation Against "Russia Hacking", To Hold Press Conference On Friday

And sure enough, on Thursday evening CNN reported that President Barack Obama vowed retaliatory action against Russia for its meddling in the US presidential election, in effect telling Russia he is about to declare cyberwar on it.

"I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing," Obama told National Public Radio. He is certainly right: the only doubt is that a foreign government did in fact try to "impact the integrity of our elections."

PropOrNot All-Star Organizers: Koch, Soros, CIA, MI6, Ukraine, All Together Now

Koch Brothers Secretly Allied w. George Soros for Hillary Clinton … The leading financiers of the Republican Party, the Koch brothers, were exposed ... by the great investigative journalist Lee Fang, as being solid supporters and heavy financiers of congressional candidates who have been leaders in expanding the U.S. military budget and moving America toward a police state (including militarization of the police).

The leading financier of the Democratic Party, George Soros, has long been known to provide major financial backing for the most-neoconservative Democratic candidates, such as Hillary Clinton, who favor every possible military invasion and coup (and see this, for more on that).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My heaven, what a (slightly strange) collection of connected bedfellows, in this attempt to thrououghly destroy America's Constitutional Republic!!

I have to wonder just what the heck these people are going to do if they are unable to turn the number of electors Clinton needs to steal the election from Trump on Monday?!?

Unfortunately, and because they have extensive experiences in doing this to effect "regime change" in other countries, Soros' organisations and the CIA may well be scheming to generate national riots against the Trump Presidency, and have Obama (during his allegedly "last days in Office") suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, invoking martial law; and declaring November's elections null and void, promising to schedule a replacement election at a later point in time.

Unfortunately, should they pull this off successfully, I am very concerned that the excrement will hit the ventilation system, and we may well see a civil war in this country.

I hope (and pray) that our current political circus doesn't move the country in this direction.

Oh, snap! New York Times airs ad for fake news by mistake . . . in an article decrying fake news

In what can only be described as the perfect case of irony, The New York Times aired a fake news ad in a story decrying fake news and the death of facts.

The piece is an editorial called “Truth and Lies in the Age of Trump” published Saturday. NYTimes’ editorial board discussed the decay of facts in a Walter Cronkite-less era dominated by truth-spinners like President-elect Donald Trump.

Smack dab in the middle of this piece lamenting the end of reliable news was a fake news story claiming Alec Baldwin was dead at 58.

“Aleppo Atrocities” – The Western Mainstream Media’s Latest Psy-Op

As the Syrian Army continue to advance in the few remaining terrorist-held enclaves, remaining residents are being evacuated by the thousands.

Elite vs. Trump

snip: If the FBI and CIA don’t hunt down the person who divulged this “secret report,” it was an authorized release. You’re being misled on purpose.

Now, getting back to the story, let’s note that there is zero evidence given. Just “it was a secret report, trust us.” Not one of the “officials” is named.

It should also be noted that Julian Assange has flatly denied that Russia was the source of the leaks. And Assange, unlike 99% of all Washington, has a reputation for truth-telling.

There were earlier reports blaming Russia for the Wikileaks hacks, and they, likewise, provided zero evidence. They say things like “consistent with Russian methods,” implying, it would seem, that Russia has some kind of patent on hacking techniques. They expect us to believe that Putin’s crews run their hacks from Russian companies and Russian IP addresses.

US Accuses Vladimir Putin Of "Personal Involvement" In Election Hack

And just like that the narrative of Russia hacking the presidential election has escalated to the highest possible level, and has officially jumped the shark.

Moments ago, following a month-long barrage of unsubstantiated stories in the press accusing the Russian government of indirectly hacking the US presidential election, which culminated with last night's 8,000 word NYT expose, and which followed a schism between the FBI and CIA, in which the former disputed the latter's "fuzzy and ambiguous" claims that Russia sought to influence the presidential elections, moments ago the NBC News reported that U.S. intelligence officials believe with "a high level of confidence" that Russian President Vladimir Putin became personally involved in the covert Russian campaign to interfere in the U.S. presidential election.

MEDIA IGNORES US RIGGING OF RUSSIA’S ELECTIONS AS CIA STRUGGLES TO PROVE RUSSIAN HACKING

Mainstream, corporate media and the U.S. political establishment has once again proved the depth of their hypocrisy in thus far unsubstantiated claims Russia directly interfered with the presidential election — because the United States has done so, itself, with multiple countries.

Including Russia.

Twenty years ago, TIME Magazine exclusively reported on the feats of American political consultants who’d managed — much to the joy of the United States government — to ensure Boris Yeltsin won re-election to the Russian presidency.

20 years ago, TIME praised America’s propaganda campaign to elect Yeltsin. Today, they have appeared to change their tone.

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails - they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for 'disgusted' Democratic whistleblowers

A Wikileaks envoy today claims he personally received Clinton campaign emails in Washington D.C. after they were leaked by 'disgusted' whisteblowers - and not hacked by Russia.

Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and a close associate of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, told Dailymail.com that he flew to Washington, D.C. for a clandestine hand-off with one of the email sources in September.

'Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians,' said Murray in an interview with Dailymail.com on Tuesday. 'The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.'

Journalist Reveals Tactics Brainwashing Industry Uses to Manipulate the Public

The practice of manipulating and controlling public opinion with distorted media messages has become so common that there is a whole industry formed around this. The entire role of this brainwashing industry is to figure out how to spin information to journalists, similar to the lobbying of government. It is never really clear just how much truth the journalists receive because the news industry has become complacent. The messages that it presents are shaped by corporate powers who often spend millions on advertising with the six conglomerates that own 90% of the media: General Electric (GE), News-Corp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, and CBS. Yet, these corporations function under many different brands, such as Fox, ABC, CNN, Comcast, Wall Street Journal, etc, giving people the perception of choice.

NDAA 2016: “Fake News” Sites Are Subject to Treason Investigations (Video)

Earlier this week, with a lot of pressure from our woefully dishonest and corrupt mainstream media, some terrifying new legislation was passed that should frighten anyone who values free speech. The legislation I am referring to was quietly passed under the 2016 NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), and it authorizes the government to investigate and crackdown on websites named in “Fake News” blacklists for treason, and as you might expect there was no coverage on the passage of the legislation by the mainstream corporate media.

In the video below, I explain how legislation like that passed both Houses of Congress when they are both Houses are controlled by the GOP, and what the newly passed legislation means for the future of free speech. In addition to providing a link to the original announcement for those who never read it, I also explain what Google and Facebook “actually” said when they announced they were cracking down on “Fake News.”

Why liberals can’t handle the truth about Russia hacking the election

Donald J. Trump won the U.S. election by a landslide but butthurt, sore liberal losers are not having any of it.

Instead, as we’ve seen, they’ve turned to malevolent tactics in an effort to express their disapproval of the democratically elected billionaire real estate tycoon.

First they tried rioting and that didn’t work. Then they tried sending death threats to electoral college members and that failed. The ‘fake news’ narrative also failed. Jill Stein’s recount was an epic fail, but not after she had carted away $6.3 million dollars from the gullible voters she scammed as part of her election recount campaign

From Russia with Fake News

Based on a single report in The Washington Post written solely on the word of anonymous sources, progressive pundits across the country are sounding the alarm, even going as far to imply that the outcome of the election is a “national emergency” due to Russia’s alleged involvement.

The eagerness with which the Left has seized on the “Russians-hacked-the-election” narrative is revealing. It is now clear that the progressive protestations about “fake news” heard last week were entirely insincere. “The CIA says Russia hacked the election to help Trump,” a Salon headline claimed. “Russian hackers meddled with the presidential election,” wrote Lee Moran wrote in The Huffington Post.

Of course, the Russians didn’t hack the election. The Left is spreading an intentionally misleading narrative intended solely to deceive. There is zero evidence whatsoever that Russia “hacked” the election — that they in any way altered or amended voting machines, voter rolls, or vote tallies.

Martin Armstrong Slams CIA "False Flag" To Cover Its Own Hack For Obama

Obama’s parting shot across the bow is his order of a full review into hacking aimed at influencing US elections going back to 2008.

Instead of targeting the CIA or the NSA, WikiLeaks went after an organization Democrats actually care about - the Democratic National Committee - and exposed its internal corruption. If Obama could, he would declare Wikileaks a Terrorist Organization and anyone who published its stuff should be thrown in prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Obama has accomplished, with his directive to cause the CIA to make this fully unsubstantiated claim on Friday, is to make the political intrigues in this country look like those of a banana republic to the rest of the world, and completely delegitimize the American election process.

"FAKE NEWS", CENSORSHIP, DARWIN AND DEMOCRACY

Censorship is not helpful to democracy--rather, it is the death of democracy.

The mainstream media is awash with hyper-active headlines about "fake news." How can we make sense of this sudden obsession?

Perhaps we can start by separating "news" from "analysis" from "commentary." "News" is "he said this, she did that, this happened." Analysis tries to make sense of trends that are apparent in the news longer-term--for example, why did Trump win? Is the economy actually healthy or not? "Commentary" is opinion that establishes a point of view and defends it while attacking other POVs.

All three of these news flows are constantly being spun /manipulated to support specific agendas and narratives. Now we are being told some of these news flows are false/ misleading and their intent is to disrupt democracy.

MSM Fake News Claims Civilians Committing Mass Suicide In East Aleppo After Syrian Army Victory

By Brandon Turbeville

If anyone needs an example of just why the mainstream corporate media is becoming more and more irrelevant by the day, one need only look at the coverage of the liberation of Aleppo to see why it must now rely on government legislation, hysteria, and panic simply to continue existing into the next decade.

Without attempting to provide a wide range of samples of stupidity and outright lunacy being peddled by the corporate press, one article stands out. “Aleppo: Cease-Fire Reached In Besieged Syrian City, Rebels Say,” by Alastair Jamieson and Mac William Bishop is a stunning display of unsupported and distorted information. The article repeatedly claims that Assad’s forces are focused on murdering innocent civilians, hunting them down in the streets and killing them, burning them alive, and ludicrously suggesting that many civilians are committing suicide en masse because of the Syrian military’s victory...

The hack into the Democrat National Committee was the beginning of the end for the Democrat establishment. It exposed the establishment as conspiring against Bernie Sanders, which led to the resignation of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for ethics concerns (naturally, she was hired by the Clinton campaign the next day).

It also revealed that Donna Brazile had abused her position as a CNN contributor to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton on numerous occasions ahead of her debates with Bernie Sanders. Brazile had to resign from CNN as a result….. for ethics concerns.

The left quickly played the blame game, placing the blame on “Russian hackers.” Now the liberal media is running a story wall-to-wall about an alleged “CIA assessment” that shows Russia tried to help Trump win.

Tucker Carlson Grills Professor For Proof That Russians Helped Trump – Watch What Happens Next!

Is it any wonder Tucker Carlson is drawing massive ratings for Fox News with his new show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, when he repeatedly wrecks leftists with a little used debate tactic called ‘the truth?’

The latest evidence of this comes from Robert McElvaine, a Mississippi history professor who just a few days ago wrote in the Huffington Post, “There is substantial evidence that Russia stole the election for Donald Trump.”

“Substantial evidence.”

Carlson brought him on to cite his ‘evidence,’ and despite it being ‘substantial’ the professor was unable to offer any proof.

The exchange got heated at points, and Carlson eventually cut the professor off.

“You are saying irresponsible things, you’re misleading people,” the host blasted. “I’m cutting you off, because I gave you a chance and you refused to be real with me.”

New York Times CEO Calls On Social Media Giants To Subsidize Mainstream Media

Print media in the United States is now largely a failed business model that has been in secular decline for years. While print media's failure is largely attributed to technological shifts that have changed consumers' media consumption behaviors, we would argue that biased reporting and a complete lack of journalistic integrity at many "real news" outlets facilitated the decline. The American population has rejected the notion of paying for "journalistic integrity" only to get hyper-partisan, leftist, manufactured narratives in return.

That said, Mark Thompson, the President and CEO of the New York Times, is convinced that Silicon Valley's social media and search giants are to blame for failing print newspapers around the country. And, like any good liberal, Thompson's first reflex to fix failing businesses is to provide subsidies...and apparently he thinks the tech titans should pay those subsidies.

I have to point out, though, that the narrative of mainstream news versus “fake news” seems a little thin to me. Meaning, I believe there is more going on here than the MSM simply trying to save itself.
