ABC actually punishes reporter over FAKE NEWS

2017_12 04 ABC pants on fire

ABC News has suspended their reporter Brian Ross without pay for 4 weeks and has issued a retraction of his FAKE NEWS story. 

Ross false reported that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that CANDIDATE Donald Trump had told him to make contact with the Russians during the election.

Actually, Flynn was prepared to testify that PRESIDENT-ELECT Trump (after the election) predictably and appropriately asked him to make contact with Russia as any transition team would do – in this case to discuss the possibility of joint US/Russian military options to fight ISIS.

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.

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.
