What is indicative of a lasting "story" - "Fake News" already
has a Wikipedia page, and is full of citations of "worthy" news
sources citing anonymous sources claiming that Russians
have interfered with the 2016 election.

en.wikipedia.org...

Beyond suspicious!

No mention of Correct The Record and Media Matters though!


My God.

Most of the "References" and "Footnotes" are from questionable sources !!!!

Somebody really went all out to compose that Wikipedia page !!

Faux News = Fake News a new twist


biased news.... commentary disguised as real facts...

how about info-tainment passed off as journalism, like all those 'talk sessions by a bunch of fems' chatterboxing the MSM


that's a handful of reasons of why ALT NEWS grew & blossomed in these past 10 or so years

MSM, Establishment hype, slanted views were the reason for underground papers in just about all major American cities since the cultural-revolution of the 60s-70s

Indeed, the so called "news" outlets stopped reporting on
the important matters, and even if they do it is most often
done with a level bias to obscure the truth.

Any chance this was done by design? I think so.

They are all losing money too....

Fake news isn't new

What is new is a significant portion of the population willing (or even wanting) to believe it.



I think that the mainstream news wants people to think there is an
epidemic of something, like they do with the flu scares, and such.



Yup.

And they are attempting to get people herded into an "MSM comfort zone".

Then they can create semi-fake stories and people will automatically think it's all true.




so tell us....what news do you believe if any?...if every person and every institution are lying, why would you even care?

A Tale Of 2 Phonies

There are 2 types of "fake news" that should be pointed out:

- What the media calls "fake news" are sites that host information that they do not provide. That isn't to say some of it isn't clickbait fakery. Only that "fake news" is the bogeyman. And they use this bogeyman to explain why they had their heads up their collective asses for the last year. I guess they fail to realize that they've been up there a lot longer than that....but the last year is the only current scapegoat

- actual "fake news" that capitalizes on peoples confirmation bias along with their desire to garner social media bling as a result of sharing their confirmation bias with others. All people really want is to have their thoughts validated. And "Share" allows this to happen. On the money end are sites making $$$ from clicks. In the US we have a notion called "caveat emptor" that should address any concerns here

Very true BFFT, and I think it is really curious that these
news corporations have chosen to use the nebulous term
"fake news". I wonder if they have an end goal in mind there,
a way to try and recapture their lost $$$?

I read a real follow up article on fake news, a fascinating
read really, a real journalist tracked down a fake news
creator, and interviewed him.

At the time, I did not think to much on it but now it
is all starting to make sense to me.

Going to go find it right now....

I'll be back!

So, I found that article....turns out that creator of
many of these "fake news" stories is a registered Democrat
living in California, writing fake news for click bait.

Now...let me go and compare this with the Wikipedia
article, because they fail to mention this.

Looks like NPR did a full investigation, and found the guy.

Bingo! The recent election makes it seem clear that the American people now prefer fake news to reality, that's why this is such is getting such attention now. It's a lost cause though, barbarians have no interest in truth or reality.

Yeah !!

The U.S. Government, with multiple reports and email releases, proved Hillary Clinton was a big liar.

And yet we saw more than 60 million people vote for her because she and other news reports kept denying it.

Biased blogs, community forums, other echo chambers are not fake news. Some will try to wrap them all up in it just the same. But fake news is actual fake news. It is outlandish stuff that gets shut down with a snopes link instantly if someone shares on Facebook. It is clickbait. Its a non-issue but still there are enough suckers in the world to click it and generate revenue. If you're interested, find out how Obama used it to torture pigeons.

Thats how fake news really works!

And what do you know, that Wiki article does not even mention
the "King" of fake news! www.cpr.org...

Which leave me with more questions than answers.

Looks like the big kerfuffle over fake news is just that, a ruse!

Too convenient how they "discovered" that guy.

I think many "reputable" agencies are in on the fake news sites.

We have seen examples of how a fake site makes something sound so outrageous, it forces people to automatically believe a story is fake even if it's proven true later.

We saw this tactic with the Hillary email scandal and with the Benghazi scandal.

Like Uncle Vlad once said:

Agreed, how convenient they "found" him, yet he still
did not make Wikipedia's new page. I had to LOL about the
part of him wearing a chain mail over his face when he
answered.



Like Uncle Vlad once said:



This whole fake news thing reeks, smells just like a classic
KGB operation. The leaked DNC emails were probably the first
surfacing of the label, although I imagine Clinton and camp
being as paranoid as they were had it set up from day one
due to her emails, and the idea they might be released.

What is really interesting is while the left is hysterical
over Russia and Trump, Russia just signed a big huge deal
with Glencore. Glencore was Mark Rich's trading Co. and is
now one of, if not the biggest Commodities Trading.

Interestingly enough, The Justice Dept just let Glencore
off the hook after a 27 million penalty...so what is the
Justice Dept involved for? Because Russia is still sanctioned,
so this Glencore deal should have been off the table.

But Russia needed the money, and so did Glencore.

And now OPEC and non OPEC sign a pact that will
lower oil production, so gas prices will go up.

All while Obama is in office!

Nothing to do with Trump!

But....these are all separate news stories, and on the
sidelines of "Russia and Trump".

Fake news indeed!!!!

Yeah that Russian deal with Qatar might mean a deal is in the making for a Qatar/Saudi gas pipeline to Europe afterall !!

The whole Syria/Iraq/ISIS fight has been because of the threat to Russia's monopoly on the Europe natural gas supply.

Now it looks like Russia gets a piece of the pie.

Watch for the war to end.

.... the sale of partial Russian assets has been in the business news, but for some strange reason, the general MSM has kept quiet. Hmmm. Qatar, Glencore to buy 19.5 percent stake in Russia state oil major Rosneft
