Speaking Of Fake News...

Gutfeld is right!  Our media often take fiction as fact because fiction fits their assumptions (cognitive bias):



This morning's big story on the news: Trump Said to Be Told of Unverified Russian Intelligence. Apparently, the 35-page document, which is unverified, has been floating around for months, and Trump Organization official Executive Vice President Michael Cohen has never been to Prague.

  1. I get a kick out of the "leak" that h's into water sports.

    This could be bigger than Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi.

    1. Shut up!, Canardo! You're nothing but a rebarbative reprobate who never has anything constructive, affirmative or even polite to say. Why anyone puts up with you I can't imagine.

    2. Let me point out that this is the mode of reporting that right wing hate purveyors have perfected over the last eight years especially and it's going to hit President Grabby particularly hard.

      Can't put it back in the bottle, bobo. Look at what you have wrought.

      Dan Rather. Not a right winger.

  2. Buzzfeed’s Trump report takes
    ‘fake news’ to a new level


    New York Post,

    by John Podhoretz

    So the website BuzzFeed decided to publish a series of memos that have been floating around for months alleging all kinds of terrible things about Donald Trump. Some of those terrible allegations have to do with efforts to influence the American elections and Trump. Some of them have to do with Trump’s personal sexual conduct. Readers of this newspaper know well not to include me among Trump’s supporters. But the scurrilousness of what BuzzFeed has done here is so beyond the bounds of what is even remotely acceptable it should compel even those most outraged by Trump’s political excesses to come to ...

    Comment:
    Later in the piece he says as an experienced editor he´s found there is no source less trustworthy than an "intelligence" source delivering dirt on someone.

  4. Dr. FreeThinke's Rx for Achieving Serenity in the Blogosphere:

    The less said to and about Leftist BUTTBURGERS the better.

    IGNORE THEM.

    DISMISS THEM.

    Don't even bother to DERIDE them.

    Whenever LEFTIST GARBAGE comes up, just TURN YOUR HEAD AWAY and CHANGE the SUBJECT.


    It may be necessary to be AWARE of EVIL, but it's morbid and unhealthy to DWELL on it.

  5. CNN was absolutely hilarious last night..the seriousness, the inside scoop, the flattering each others' journalism....Bernstein, Sciutto, Tapper, ...."oh, yes, this story looks SO TRUE". :=)

    Who cares? It's time to grow up...Gutfeld's right; until the media stops looking for the very worst in everything so it goes along with their bias, we're not going to succeed.

    If only media had held Obama's feet to the fire! So many inferences and nothing was dug into.........lucky Obama. Yes, he knew Hillary had the private server, yes his IRS was picking on Cons, no, we still have very little information on his schooling, etc...yes, he should have held the red line...blah blah blah...free pass.

    The media teeth are sharpened again now, however...brother, are they. Not even attempting to seem impartial; that's the rub. I actually heard John King today say something about how we must stick to what we learned in journalism; while decent journalism profs are rolling in their graves?

    1. Z,
      CNN was absolutely hilarious last night...

      So I've been hearing and reading.

      Is it any wonder that so many people are so disgusted with the so-called mainstream media? No journalistic integrity! For the most post, anyway.

    2. Poor John Acosta was crying on Erin Burnett's shoulder today whining about how mean Trump was to him....no mention of the fact that just maybe Trump (and nobody else) appreciated the inferences and innuendos of Bernstein and Tapper and others last night in re the information that's now been pretty much put to rest against Trump? Unreal.

  6. A fake news story loses in court:

    'Clock Boy' Loses in Court, Father's Defamation Lawsuit Dismissed.

    Excerpt:

    ...During the lengthy hearing, Judge Moore pressed Mohamed’s lawyer, Fort Worth attorney Susan Hutchison, to provide any facts that would suggest that Hanson and the other defendants had said anything false or defamatory about Mohamed or his son during the television broadcasts. After spending a painfully embarrassing 15 minutes flipping through reams of paper, Mohamed’s lawyer was unable to provide any such evidence....

    Read the rest at the link.

    It is my understanding that the case has been dismissed -- with prejudice -- and that the father has to pay some of the defense's legal fees.
