Re: Identifying 'Fake" news sites

Glenn Greenwald has defended Ron Paul numerous times during his campaign despite that Glenn leans left. He has shown himself to be a truthful journalist.

Glenn Greenwald Blasts "Fake News" Peddling Washington Post For Lack Of "Basic Journalistic Skepticism"


Quote:

"The report that came out today was just another set of repackaged conclusions from the intelligence community, which may or may not be true, that were again completely unaccompanied by evidence. And when you simply point that out, that the intelligence community keeps just repeating itslef over and over...without providing evidence that can be evaluated whether or not it's true, then you must love Vladimir Putin and you're probably working for the Kremlin, when, in fact, it's just the basic kind of skepticism that all journalists should be exercising."

Quote:
A recent poll of cable news network viewers found that CNNís regular audience is far more skeptical of the political news they receive than Fox News fans, with just 33% of those who mostly watch CNN said they trust their political news.

4Chan Claims To Have Fabricated Anti-Trump Report As A Hoax

Quote:
In a story that is getting more surreal by the minute, a post on 4Chan claims that the infamous "golden showers" scene in the unverified 35-page dossier which served as a basis for a US intelligence report, was fabricated as a hoax, which however managed to fool virtually everyone.

Trump Slams BuzzFeed As "Failing Pile Of Garbage", Tells CNN "You Are Fake News"


Quote:
This was a beautiful moment...CNN and Buzzfeed have been two of the loudest critics of fake news and just got busted cmmitting an atrocious act of faux journalism. Trump not only called them out, he dressed them down in front of the world and told them there would be consequences.

Sell your CNN shares!!

Re: Identifying 'Fake" news sites

I am REALLY beginning to like this guy......However, he better be clean if he is going on the offensive and taking on the media.

He is speaking blue collar language with a blue collar attitude and Washington is shitting bricks. And everyone is liking it except the butt hurt folks.

"Fake News" Facebook Lands On List Of "America's Most Hated Companies"

Quote:
Facebook just can't seem to catch a break lately. From questionable privacy policies and mass data collection of its users to its handling of the so-called "Fake News" epidemic, Mark Zuckerberg is pissing off a lot of people these days.

Re: Identifying 'Fake" news sites

Facebook is a CIA funded organization just like Twitter and Google products. Stop using it. I've never. It's BS. The CIA depends upon the naive to give all their info willingly so that they can create files upon everyone that voluntarily gives their names/faces to the intelligence machine. God help you if you ever get in trouble. It may not be to the current laws but what if the laws are changed?

YouTube Joins The "Fake News" Crusade, Shuts Down Popular Conservative Channel

Quote:

"Clearly this was a politically motivated move. I never received any request or complaint from MLA. These were perfectly legitimate fair use excerpts with great news value. This is an attempt to silence our reporting on a matter of great public importance. We intend to pursue all available remedies, and call on YouTube to restore our account."

Re: Identifying 'Fake" news sites

Good riddance. CNN deserves everything bad that happens to them. They allowed themselves to become the propagandist mouthpieces for the establishment and thus doing serious harm to our country. They should be eviscerated. F them.

Bannon Declares War On The Media: "You Are The Opposition; Keep Your Mouth Shut"

Quote:
Not one to mince words, Steve Bannon, Trump's Chief White House strategist, eviscerated the mainstream media during an interview last night. Commenting on their coverage of the Trump campaign, Bannon lambasted the disconnect of the media from everyday Americans saying, "They don't understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States." Per Axios:

"The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile," Mr. Bannon said during a telephone call. "I want you to quote this," Mr. Bannon added. "The media here is the opposition party. They don't understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States."

"The elite media got it dead wrong, 100 percent dead wrong," Mr. Bannon said of the election, calling it "a humiliating defeat that they will never wash away, that will always be there."...

New Poll Uses Huge "Oversample" To Suggest That 40% Of Registered Voters Support Impeaching Trump

Quote:
This morning a lot of media outlets are citing a new poll conducted by "Public Policy Polling" which suggests that 40% of registered voters support impeaching President Trump. Of course, about 15 seconds worth of actual critical thought could have saved these media outlets from embarrassingly pumping yet another "rigged poll" courtesy of aggressive "oversamples".

Haha...even Bernie, of whom I admire for not being as corrupt, doesn't like CNN.
But, then again...even Bernie is a turncoat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7II2diHymv4
