FAKE NEWS ALERT

More fake news from a Leftie posing as a distinguished scholar. Heckuva job, Kruggie.

2017_09 30 Krugman NYT fake news

There is an outbreak of a “c” disease in Puerto Rico but it’s conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, not cholera.  Pink eye is common; I’d wager most of us have had it at least once.  But according to the CDC, the bug that causes cholera is not endemic to the U.S., Puerto Rico, or the U.S. Virgin Islands.

MSM Hypocrisy

MEDIA fake news examples

From John Nolte at The Daily Wire:

The very same media that shrugged when Hillary Clinton set up a secret server, deleted 33,000 government emails, BleachBit’d whatever remained and then literally took a hammer to the devices — the media that set that precedent now wants us to get all worked up over Trump’s tweets?

The very same media that buried Bill Clinton’s perjury and his numerous victims of sexual abuse — the media that set those precedents now wants us to consider an Access Hollywood video a disqualifier for the presidency? Now wants us to freak out over an awkward handshake?

The very same media that gushed over Barack Obama’s magical ability to “slow-walk the truth” — the media that set that precedent now wants us to impeach Trump over how the details of his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer have been released?

The very same media that again and again used “Republican overreach” as a tactic to damage the GOP whenever a Democrat scandal rose up — the media that set that precedent now wants us to side with them when the Trump administration chooses to communicate directly through social media?

The very same media that asked 23 follow-up questions of Trump and none of Hillary — the media that set that precedent now wants us to side with them when the White House limits the press briefings they can peacock in?

The very same media that said nothing when Obama hired a 9-11 Truther as a Czar (and later hired him as one of their own) — the media that set that precedent wants us to be upset over Ivanka and Jared?

The very same media that showed absolutely no interest in recovering even one of Hillary’s 33,000 illegally deleted emails — the media that set that precedent, now wants us to share their outrage over the fact that Don Jr. tried to recover them in a 20-minute meeting?

Did CNN FAKE this?

From Allen West: “With the whole world watching the tragic loss of life and property in Texas, CNN corespondent Drew Griffin decided to play the role of hero and assist in the saving of a man in distress, which on the surface is certainly worthy of applause.”

When I saw the clip, I thought it was a bit much when the guy thanked them for “saving my life.” But it gets worse. A sharp-eyed tweeter noticed that the “heroic” talking head apparently took the time to CHANGE HIS CLOTHES in the middle of the so-called rescue. When he first runs behind the wheelchair sign, you can see he’s wearing the red hoodie with shorts and sandals. But later, he’s wearing black pants.

So what if she’s a mom?  We’re not responsible for her poor parenting decisions. She is.

PLUS, she had been deported before AND was driving without a license. If she were an American caught doing this in Mexico, she would not be on her way home, but to prison.  Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony. Illegals who have been deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years.

Surprise: Snopes wrote something decent about Trump

Broadly speaking, most of the falsehoods levelled against Trump fall into one or more of four categories, each of them drawing from and feeding into four public personas inhabited by the President.

They are:

  • Donald Trump: International Embarrassment
  • Trump the Tyrant
  • Donald Trump: Bully baby
  • Trump the Buffoon.

Some of these claims are downright fake, entirely fabricated by unreliable or dubious web sites and presented as satire, or otherwise blatantly false. But the rest — some of which have gained significant traction and credibility from otherwise serious people and organizations — provide a fascinating insight into the tactics and preoccupations of the broad anti-Trump movement known as “the Resistance,” whether they were created by critics of the President or merely shared by them.

Generally speaking, we discovered that they are characterized and driven by four types of errors of thought:

  • Alarmism
  • A lack of historical context or awareness
  • Cherry-picking of evidence (especially visual evidence)
  • A failure to adhere to Occam’s Razor — the common-sense understanding that the simplest explanation for an event or behavior is the most likely.

This Is CNN

“The most trusted name in news” has become a pathetic joke. In its zeal to bring down Republicans in general and Donald Trump in particular, they have stooped to quoting “unnamed sources” and “anonymous tips,”  which is code for Obama holdovers leaking information to harm the administration. They behave like spoiled children at press briefings when they are not given the deference they feel they’re entitled to. It’s gotten to the point the briefings are no longer daily nor televised.

James O’Keefe from Project Veritas has done yeoman’s work for years exposing the Left for the liars and frauds they truly are. He taped a CNN producer admitting the Trump/Russia collusion stories are “mostly bullshit.”

Project Veritas Captures CNN Producer Saying Russia Reporting Is ‘Mostly Bulls**t’

Three journalists quit CNN in fallout from retracted Russia story


Reporter Thomas Frank, editor Eric Lichtblau and executive editor Lex Haris all resigned from their positions following a company-wide investigation into the single-sourced story that was quickly debunked, The Washington Post first reported. CNN quickly followed up with a story of their own on the resignations.

Lichtblau reportedly oversaw the false story, while Haris headed up CNN’s investigative unit.  In the retraction, the network said the story “did not meet CNN’s editorial standards.” The network is now requiring approval from two top editors before any Russia-related story can be published.

CNN Brags About Ratings After Undercover Tape Released

CNN is bragging about the network’s ratings shortly after an undercover video showed one producer claiming they cover Russia so heavily because it helps their ratings.

CNN seemed to think it was good timing to attack President Trump Tuesday morning for misrepresenting the network’s ratings and remind people they had their “most-watched second quarter in history.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta Breaks Press Briefing ‘No Cameras’ Rule and Takes Picture of Sean Spicer

No cameras were allowed in the White House press briefing on Monday, but CNN’s Jim Acosta broke the rules and took a picture anyway.

The liberal press pool act like children in the briefing room.  At one point, CNN’s Acosta opined:  “Why are the cameras off, Sean, why did you turn them off? Can you just give us an answer to that? Can you tell us why you turned the cameras off? Why are they off?”
