To put it plainly, the Right Wing has crossed too many lines and now have become a liability. This is a monster of your own creation. Perhaps you should have been interested in the truth and fact, instead of self-serving confirmation bias.


Interesting choice of words. It's almost as if you are finally getting it, but as you seek for the truth, you've inverted reality.
You are almost there in understanding why the left lost the election. I encourage you to keep going on your voyage of discovery!

The OP is spot on by the way. Trump now has the mandate to regulate CNN et al. After all it's OK to get a third party to check up on news sources and provide official warnings.
He will also be able to push through new election regulation too... Expect voter ID laws. After all, the elections are open to rigging ... The left said so.

Love how you use Trevor Noah from COMEDY CENTRAL to make your point. If the show isn't biased I don't know what is. One thing I do know though is that you are a hack and should probably get off the internet for awhile. Maybe take a seat in the corner little guy.

I don't really see the point of making these types of threads. I'm fully aware the left has been doing the same thing. I'm extremely annoyed by them. I'm not even a conservative nor am I liberal. Regardless this fighting on both sides should be beyond ATS. I get we are all in the little play pin with only a few toys and each one of us are trying to up the other to get the toys but damn. As for the others posting here you sure did bring the retards in. You need to get out the special helmets before you let them in again.

Who is handing what to Trump?

Then you move to how the fake news label is censorship to how bad possible fake news from WaPo was.

There was a LOT of fake news during the election, pointing out that Clinton didn't have a colostomy bag under her suit did not lose the election.

The OP is disjointed.

Trump voters ARE in an alternate reality.


First, I have to commend you on being a good little PC soldier by quoting Rachel Maddow from your other post. It is wonderful to see you fall in line, allow your opinions to be given to you and all the freedom that brings.



For everyone else...lets discuss the reality. President Donald Trump won the election fair and square with the typical half of the country voting for ending the PC crap, putting America and Americans first, ending nation building and the "American World Police" force, bringing back the core American values, etc., etc., etc.

In addition, we also won the House and the Senate thanks to the wishes and the votes of the American public. Trump has already executed deals that will help Americans and is putting an end to the left's (Obama's) deals that do nothing but take from Americans and give to someone else. Our economy is going to grow, the stock market has almost topped 20K, Police and Military are breathing a sigh of relief, the DNC, Clinton and gang have been exposed for their corruption, Bernie got some retribution...well...I could go on and on.

The other reality is the left. Crying and sucking on their pacifiers because reality kicked them in the ass. Attacking others and causing violence because they forgot how to lose. Illegally shielding illegal aliens from our laws. Still attacking and killing police. Still pulling down crosses and Christmas to spite other Americans...etc.

Your insanity, childishness and violence has no place in America. You embarrass the rest of us to the world just as your President has done. We are going back to being the "land of the free" and "the home of the brave" instead of the "land of the free if you agree with the left" and "the home of others changing your diapers".

THAT is reality. Try living in it for a change.

I still find it utterly hilarious that we now live in a time where the word 'liberal' has become an insult. What a world.

Also - and this would apply equally to any dems who act the same - the sheer amount of fully grown adults who are saying things like 'lol tears' and 'cry like babies lol' is absolutely cringe worthy. It's like children in online games - it's the most basic and obvious form of trolling designed purely to rile people up. And consequently it increases the divide, harms productive discussion, and serves only to make you look immature and incapable of adult discussion.

So let's all be adults, yes?

What's even more hilarious is that liberal is a 'worse' insult than 'democrat'.

The right controls the house, senate and the Presidency!

The left and the MSN are fast becoming irrelevant. The more they raise their voice the more irrelevant they become!



It is not just the left...

It is the majority of citizens of the United States of America...and by an " unprecedented" margin.

You can root for the federal government with the Orange Menace and his minions.. I will bet on the people of this country ...see you in a couple years when this dumpster fire of a movement ends up disgraced and impeached.

OPs like this leave me convinced that Trumpites have literal neurological malformations of some kind.

I support the right wings right to come up with Fake News stories..if they can sell to stupid people..let them.

I also support free market capitalism ...the right of private companies like google or Facebook to choose whether they want to promote made up stupid stuff posing as news.

I support anyone that wants to call BS on the ridiculous goofy racist hateful insane # that floats around.

I support free markets and free speech.

So..What you are talking about is communism..state run media..where Facebook, Google et al are forced to promote fake news and news outlets are prohibited from speaking out and calling BS on fake news.

That is ridiculous...take that BS and this OP to North Korea ...

What a disgusting line of BS you are promoting.

The BS is your spin. What we're facing is the likes of Google & Facebook blocking content as deemed by the White House.

Careful what you wish for, because if this blade cuts both ways your guys, well, you'll deserve it quite frankly as embracing numerous forms of Censorship is under your every other breath these days.

AND btw...weren't you the one during the election season that repeatedly posted Fake OPs on ATS from the fake abc co site? Ridiculous stories...I think since they were linked to a dangerous site they were deleted altogether. I can check the hoax forum for those stories when I get a chance...

You are one of the least credible members on this board...I take this ugly OP in context.

I had one about the paid agitators, with some 8 different pieces of evidence, which that mock ABC News one was in there. The way I was searching the google it wasn't apparent it was fake the way it came up amongst other things. I wasn't following the election when that first came up and got called out (when it was timely); this was a summary job many months later; I never got the memo there was a mock ABC News website. After they zapped it and I went and googled directly for it then I saw the hundred site that did. Meanwhile it one one of many pieces, and the other pieces held up fine, to which I later came back with a all new version of it with like 100 pieces of evidence. I dont recall seeing you in that one.

Meanwhile, I dare you to find an OP whom writes mostly all their own stuff, and thread for thread wield more citations than I have been cranking out this year. I double dog dare you.

As fast as I crank out wicked pieces I'm allowed to fudge a single source from tie to time. Everybody does it. And it ain't like I'm paid so whatever. It's a rare day I hardly even take the time to fully proof read. I was never even supposed to have time all year for any of this politics stuff, but I was here for the rumble anyways, and it was only possible due to great sacrifice. I do the biggest pieces, in a hurry, rushed to print. If there's any fudge then call it out. I dont mind the bumps.

Chew on all this and get back to me:
www.wired.com...
www.nytimes.com...
www.theverge.com...
www.theverge.com...
www.usnews.com...
dailycaller.com...
www.breitbart.com...

You support it today because you perceive it as benefiting your ideal-olotry. Wait until the pendulum swings back to the other side. Enjoy your last month, assuming Trump is the authoritarian dictator you guys insist he is. If he is you'll bee wanting to wash my feet in oil, unlike how currently you about want to slit my throat.

What your political bias wont allow you to see is, number one I'm not 'the right' so you're typical left/right crap doesn't apply to me, and number 2, by the time I take a strong absolutist position on something I've seen more than enough to know I've got it dead to rights. As just demonstrated. I often crank out bibles to back up strong positions, and I'll be damned if where the points that I argue as such on here before doing so you sure swoop in like you've GOT ME. Well there you go there's more than enough citations to back up my absolutist argument I'm pushing. And if you knew ever 1/5 of what I know about Google you'd never even challenge me on how dangerous Google is to be a player in this. Anyways, fake news / censorship 'bible' posts are on the way. This was but one of many warm up threads towards those ends. Hope to see you when they come (it should be tomorrow, both of them)...

Wtf am I supposed to chew on there?

FB or Google trying to come up with algorithms to spot fake news?

What does that have to do with you claiming the WH would tell them what to censor?

They also have algorithms to determine what you like or don't like etc.. they also have algorithms to spot pedophiles...ad infinity.. they are also a private company..

What you claimed was the WH censoring..THAT was a FAKE claim.

It is accurate...

This is the mud pit.

An OP that makes fake claims and derides half the people in this country based on that fake BS?

If someone doesn't want their credibility challenged..then don't post fake BS and attack others.

Alright, fine, I'll paint you a picture (I need to format these citations anyways), although you should already know all this stuff:

PART 1: WA-PO & FACEBOOK


Eleven Years On: How ‘The Washington Post’ Helped Give Us the Iraq War
In the months before the war, The Washington Post ran more than 140 stories on its front page promoting the war.

“We are inevitably the mouthpiece for whatever administration is in power.“ —WaPo Reporter Karen DeYoung.



The Washington Post admits that its “fake news” story was in fact “fake news”
The Washington Post, under extreme scrutiny, has come clean and admitted (as best it can given the circumstances) of printing an article about PropOrNot’s “fake news” list that was based on unsourced, unsubstantiated “fake” claims.

The Washington Post did journalism a major disservice by running a story meant to brand 200 websites critical of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and the neo-liberal elites, as Putin apologists and Kremlin backed useful idiots.

It turns out, by basing an article referenced by anonymous, cowards in hiding, group PropOrNot, The Washington Post did exactly what it was accusing the 200 news sites on “the list” of doing…that is spreading “fake news”.



Clamp ing down on viral fake news, Facebook partners with sites like Snopes and adds new user reporting
A new system funnels fake news reports to fact-checkers from Snopes, PolitiFact, FactCheck.org, ABC, and AP.


*Facebook a CIA Front?
*Biggest Conspiracy of 2012 : FACEBOOK ... It is time you close your account


Mark Zuckerberg sought advice from Clinton campaign via Sheryl Sandberg about getting involved in politics, leaked documents reveals
-Leaked emails show Sheryl Sandberg wrote John Podesta in August 2015
-She said Mark Zuckerberg was keen to meet Podesta to discuss issues
-Podesta is Hillary Clinton's campaign manager and one of her top aides
-Zuckerberg was 'hungry to learn' how he could influence public policy
-Facebook has 1.7 billion users and the IRS is chasing it for $5 billion in tax



Fact-Checking Snopes: Website’s Political ‘Fact-Checker’ Is Just A Failed Liberal Blogger
Popular myth-busting website Snopes originally gained recognition for being the go-to site for disproving outlandish urban legends -such as the presence of UFOs in Haiti or the existence of human-animal hybrids in the Amazon jungle.

Recently, however, the site has tried to pose as a political fact-checker. But Snopes’ “fact-checking” looks more like playing defense for prominent Democrats like Hillary Clinton and it’s political “fact-checker” describes herself as a liberal and has called Republicans “regressive” and afraid of “female agency.”

Snopes’ main political fact-checker is a writer named Kim Lacapria. Before writing for Snopes, Lacapria wrote for Inquisitr, a blog that — oddly enough — is known for publishing fake quotes and even downright hoaxes as much as anything else.



The Liberal Tilt at PolitiFact
This is a pattern with PolitiFact. Overall, they've rated Trump "False"/"Mostly False"/"Pants on Fire" 77 percent of the time. But they've rated Clinton "False" and "Mostly False" only 26 percent of the time.

The PolitiFact political agenda jumps off the page. On the Republican side, Sen. Ted Cruz lands on the "False" side 65 percent of the time, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich 57 percent of the time and former Sen. Rick Santorum 55 percent of the time. For Democrats, President Obama is ruled false 25 percent of the time, and Sen. Bernie Sanders is false only 30 percent of the time. This is the guy who routinely says, "the business model of Wall Street is fraud."



FactCheck.org is Sponsored by Decidedly LEFTIST Organization: ANNENBERG Public Policy Foundation
The fact is, the ANNENBERG Public Policy Center (APPC), the sponsoring agency behind FastCheck.org, is itself supported by the same foundation, the ANNENBERG FOUNDATION, that Bill Ayers secured the 49.2 million dollars from to create the Chicago ANNENBERG Challenge “philanthropic” organization in which Barack Obama was the founding Chairman of the Board for and Ayers served as the grant writer of and co-Chair of for its two operating arms.



Associated Press "journalist" Eric Tucker is willing to be 'steered away' from a story about Clinton's emails:
> We have been told, and we are preparing to report, that the FBI has > taken possession of the thumb drive that was once in your possession. This > is what we have been informed, and we wanted to see whether there was any > sort of comment that could be provided. If you wanted to steer us away and > say that we are misinformed, then I would gladly accept that as well. But > we have solid reason to believe this. We’d welcome any comment you can > offer. Thanks very much.


That thumbdrive had the missing Hillary server emails, as you'd know if you're well familiar with the WikiLeaks dumps.

And last nut not least, the 'real' ABC News:
