    Fake News Stories

    Hum....now let's see who the liberal and pro-socialist media targets.

    12 Fake News Stories from the Establishment Media




    With all of the politically-charged talk about banning “fake news” sites, it seems appropriate to review some of the worst fake news stories pushed by mainstream media outlets.
    No matter how large your family gathering is this Thanksgiving, you won’t be chowing down on a turkey as big as these phony stories from A-list television shows and publications.

    lets not ask people to do research and weed out sources who aren't credit worthy. Let's spoon feed them what we determine to be true and newsworthy. Sounds like what is already happening.

    46 U.S. COMPANIES JOIN ANTI-TRUMP BREITBART BLACKLIST

    Leftist plot to attack top advertisers, blame 'fake news' for president-elect's win

    Published: 20 hours ago

    A Donald Trump-hating Twitter user – who is too scared to reveal his true identity because he says he fears backlash from Trump supporters – is attempting to destroy a leading conservative news site with a coordinated campaign attacking its advertisers and claiming it’s “racist.”
    The anonymous Twitter user, known as Sleeping Giants, is attempting to take down Breitbart News. It takes screenshots of advertisements on Breitbart and then harasses companies that own the ads, demanding that they blacklist the news site.
    And several high-profile U.S. companies are taking the bait.
    Ironically, while Sleeping Giants accuses Breitbart of being a “racist” site, the Twitter account features raised black fists that resemble those used in 1969 posters of the Black Panther Party. A similar fist, though typically white, was used to symbolize white power, and another red version represented leftist Autonnomist Marxism.
    The blog DigiDay says, “The creator of the account said he would prefer to remain anonymous to avoid being harassed by Trump supporters on the internet. He said he started the account because fake news and disinformation, are, in his opinion, two of the reasons why the election turned out in favor of Trump.”
    The creator of Sleeping Giants told the blog, “The biggest way that this disinformation will continue is ad revenue, just like any news source. Beyond really wanting to stop this nonsense, this effort was really born out of the need to inform advertisers about the kind of material that they’re sponsoring. This isn’t supposed to be a boycotting effort as much as an information effort.”
    Sleeping Giants, a new Twitter handle that was launched in November, offers this description of its activities: “We are trying to stop racist websites by stopping their ad dollars. Many companies don’t even know it’s happening. It’s time to tell them.”


    As of Thursday, Sleeping Giants was targeting the following companies, demanding that they ban their ads from appearing on Breitbart: American Express, LG, Jeep, Zillow, Epson, Revlon, Dollar General, Kohl’s, Gap, Ralph Lauren, Sprint, Guitar Center, Famous Footwear, PayPal, Frontgate, Citi, Burlington Coat Factory, WebMD, Canon, SiriusXM, Vistaprint, Walgreens, BMW, Zulily, Hotels.com, Kia, Pottery Barn, Volvo, Toys “R” Us, NFL, American Legion, Purina, Samsung, Whole Foods, T-Mobile, Staples and dozens more.
    As WND reported, Breitbart was one of many so-called “fake news” websites recently targeted by the left in a major “hit list” designed to discredit legitimate news organizations. WND found a leftist, Trump-bashing assistant professor in Massachusetts who specialized in “fat studies” was behind that campaign. The assistant professor, who publicly bashed Trump as “sexist, racist, homophobic, and xenophobic,” has only had her position teaching journalism at Merrimack College for 15 months. Mainstream media outlets such as the Los Angeles Times circulated her list without offering any details concerning her qualifications or apparent history of left-leaning bias.
    The following are some major companies that have committed to blackslisting Breitbart.

    Re: Fake News Stories

    Jimmy Kimmel is the latest form of scum to tout Obamacare and the pre-ex.

    For now I'll say he ignorant enough and enough of a hater to believe his son would not have been covered before Obamacare. The fact that he used his own personal experience and it does not apply puts him at the lowest of the low.

    Most of the fake news sharing that happened in the 2016 election was pro Trump and anti HRC.

    Turns out Trump supporters are more gullible.

    Well, first they determine what is "fake" and which sites are "fake", and assume that the mainstream media has the facts right.

    The reason some of these so-called "fake" sites exist in the first place is because the network media (and newspapers) are so biased that they cannot be trusted. When you start getting internal memos stating that the candidate of their choice will be getting debate questions ahead of time, you should naturally look elsewhere for your news. Old school media has become an agent of one of the political parties.

    I gave you a link that is kindest to the pro-Trump camp. Russia sponsored much of the fake news - according to our IC. But some profiteers probably jumped in when they saw how many clicks they could get from the gullible pro-Trump camp. Just keeping it real.

    That probably seems right to you from your vantage point in the Fox News echo chamber.

    Btw, their fake news reporting is higher than MSNBC even.
