Default MSM = FAKE News

Posing as objective truth tellers with high journalistic standards but at all times being biased toward the establishment, biased toward those in political authority, biased toward ratings, Full of Fluff, with a bit of leaning toward the left or right depending on the reports.

Examples to follow.

Mentions MSM major fake news like the FAKE NYT Judith Miller Story about WMD's in Iraq. and the subtle FAKERY of a DAPL protest report that mentions a police injury as a fact and 15 protester injuries as a "claim" of injury.

Mentions and shows Mika B from Morning Joe talking about Her Boss got a Call from corporate Execs for her to tone down her Criticism of certain political figures.
Chenk Urger mentions He's got the SAME type of pushback from the higher ups at CNN when we worked there. Tone down the criticisms "We're insides not outsiders" "we" being CNN. he mentions that they wanted to control or manipulate his reports to conform for some sponsors and more.

that pressure is a regular thing. the same thing happens at FOX News. Stories Pulled completely to protect Corporate sponsors like Monsanto, or military contractors.


In the Style of Jeff Foxworthy
If You____________ you might be Fake News



Yes the MSM does give us a lot of real news but they are NOT the ONLY sources, and MOST OFTEN they are not the BEST place to get the WHOLE story AT ALL.

A former top German Journalist and Editor Dr. Udo Ulfkatte
Says he took brides the rich, he was cajoled with "good contacts" to do "favors" for the CIA and Euro intel agencies and was trained to write pro Western and mute or silence bad western actions. And write negative stories about countries not inline with western interest.
"I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public.

But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia — this is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all of Europe"

"FOX NEWS Reporters (Reporters Steve Wilson & Jane Akre) uncover that most of the Milk in the USA, and across some parts of the world is unfit to drink due to Monsanto Corporation's POSILAC®, which has been proven to be a cancer-causing growth hormone (known in short as "BGH" "BST" or "rBGH"), but they were fired for trying to tell people the truth.

(Important note: After a long court battle, the Court dismissed the whistle blowers protection for the reporters because the Court stated that there was no law, to force that the NEWS state the truth! FACT! Going on to say the NEWS was no different than other TV shows/reality shows!!)

But the FDA has turned a blind eye once again! If you consumed or fed regular milk to your family today (8/21/08), there is more than a 90% chance that it was from a cow injected with BGH (Bovine somatotropin developed by using recombinant DNA technology). You could be killing or harming your child every time you pour them a glass of milk, the same as pouring them a glass of slow acting poison."

I understand your point but, Don't just blame the media


Fake news is ;

HANDS UP DON'T SHOOT

BENGHAZI WAS THE RESULT OF A VIDEO

IF YOU LIKE YOUR DOCTOR, YOU CAN KEEP YOUR DOCTOR

THE RUSIANS HACKED OUR ELECTIONS.

If Putin could have controlled our elections, Obama would have lost in 2012.

The news media is supposed to challenge the veracity of what our leadership spins. When the President tells us not to watch a certain news outlet be wary of his advice. Whether it is President Obama diminishing FOX or President Trump scalding CNN.

When a politician tells you not to look, best you look.

If you - rig a Chevy truck to explode thereby making GM a villain - you might be fake news.

This is one my favorites. NBC's Jane Pauli softly admits it was "a bad idea" instead of a lie.

You're twisting the thread to your own goals. And doing so poorly.

How are the above "fake news"?
If people are saying that, then the media will report that people are saying that.
Do you think the media should just turn a blind eye when people in power are talking about a Benghazi video in the expectation that it will be sometime in the future proven false?

You're trying to blame the media for reporting something that was ACTUALLY NEWS.

This is a really dumb argument.
You're blindly assuming that the hackability of the components in 2012 is the same as Hillary / DNC stuff in 2016. And that the information to be found was equivalent.

And it's also ignoring that Trump wasn't running in 2012. So why would Putin help Romney in 2012?

Did the media report the truth about the Benghazi video?

Did the media show the truth on "hands up don't shoot"?

Did the media expose the truth on "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor"?

The point isn't simply that this stuff was reported...It was HOW it was reported...

The MSM pushed these narratives even though they knew these issues were unproven at best; lies at worst...

When Trump says something that might not be true, the MSM response is "Trump said something today, and we have the professor of Liberal Glory here to tell us its a bunch of bullsh*t for four minutes..."

When Obama says something that might not be true, the MSM response is "Obama said something today...Now to weather..."...

You're going to have to prove that last sentence.
