Fake news

If there's one thing that grinds my gears it's fake "news". I would hope that one day anything that is stamped with the term "news" should be 100% accurate. Much like the labeling of organic food.

I'm happy to see a story that addresses this


The rise and rise of fake news

I just wonder how many people don't realize that there is nothing that says news has to be true.

Well . . . it's all relative . . . depends on context . . . and intent . . . if you didn't intend your fake to be a lie, then it's OK.

If it gets made into a meme it goes straight into the history books. Definite facts.

Trump gets twitter taken away

According to a Sunday report by The New York Times, campaign staff members have taken control of the Republican presidential candidate’s Twitter account in an attempt to keep him from another one of his infamous rants just before voters head to the polls.

I think they are building a new wing at The Smithsonian dedicated to historical memes.

This is a scary thing. If you control the entire media and the two federal law enforcement agencies, what can stop you from doing whatever you want? CNN is basically a super pac for the hag.

Hackers have become the new journalists and journalists have become political hacks. WTF.

I get it...so Trump's twittering is a bigger disqualifier than Hillary's emailing and handling of sensitive information and lack of honesty and transparency in that regard?....makes sense....I personally, could care less about Twitter and anything that happens there...a huge disqualifier for me is someone who's been proven incompetent and completely dishonest when entrusted with authority...that she's yet to be held accountable demonstrates the degree of corruption existing within our government...promoting her is insanity unless you approve of her corrupt style and the further degradation of the stature of our institutions.....however loathsome Trump may be...I "trust" him far more than the Clintons and their hangers on with the office....it's not saying much for either of them, but the Clinton's history of abject corruption with and in everything they have ever touched is nearly as as concerning as the number of supporters who dismiss it all out of hand....

I'll save you the time of a reply....none of the above is factual, Hillary has a great resume and is simply the victim decades of right wing operatives setting her and her husband up to appear that they are corrupt, amoral pillagers of government

that's original....I don't like Trump...don't plan to vote for him....but for crying out loud....what he writes on Twitter is a problem and everything that we know, not only regarding hillary's email but the rest of the family's dealings is not??

we're electing a president that is supposed to uphold and defend the Constitution and maintain the integrity of our institutions ....she's demonstrated herself incapable of that....Trump sucks but he doesn't have a thirty year track record of government corruption....democrats seem very comfortable with democrat government corruption..you live in RI Eben...you see it every day....I don't believe he'll abuse the office to the degree that the Clinton's have previously and I'm sure are already planning to do

re 1930's germany

if Trump were to win and then betray the public trust...there's a long line of republicans and journalists anxious to hold him accountable

there is clearly no one on the democrat side or in the MSM to hold the Clinton's accountable for any actions,,,that is a frightening prospect

"what he writes on Twitter is a problem and everything that we know, not only regarding hillary's email but the rest of the family's dealings is not?? "

NOW you're coming around to liberalism. You see, we should focus on all of Trump's ethical lapses, and ignore all of Hillary's ethical lapses. Because in that light, you have to admit, she compares favorably!

"democrats seem very comfortable with democrat government corruption.."

Two very, very different sets of rules, that's for certain.

Great post. One CNN contributor was also the head of the DNC, who was let go by CNN for emailing Hillary debate questions ahead of time. And she said last night, that "my conscience is clear". This woman, Donna Brazil, cheated, she got caught cheating, and she is still the head of the DNC. She also got caught lying about it, because she had denied sending Hillary the questions.

Also at CNN, you have a high profile host (Chris Cuomo) advising viewers not to pay attention to any network that is giving any coverage to Hillary's hacked emails, because we can't have anything critical being said about her.

Jake tapper is about to be tapped for the unemployment line. Supposedly, he's the source of the leak.

The worst part of this whole election is that even after it is done we will still have to deal with the losing party bitching and moaning about why they lost....
