Fake News is not real and reality isn't real---In other words its another irrelevant thought form/MEME to chase other thought forms into nothingness


Meme magic is real.

When you can get a candidate to talk about a cartoon frog, it crosses that virtual barrier.

Cant believe people are asking for the gov to step in and protect people from being spoon fed sheep.........and "CONSERVATIVES" non the less, i swear I dont recognize my previous conservative brothers and sisters anymore


You're so called "conservative" friends have fallen in to the fascist mindset. They are calling for more than just censorship. They have called for the targeting of people by their religion. They have called for mass round-ups.

The Right Wing is trending towards ultra-nationalist fascism and there seem to be very few of you true conservatives around to talk some sense in to them.

The majority of people are not ATS members.
They watch the alphabet news channels and for them that is the reality of the world they live in.
You have people that will post MSM stories here and then some jerk off will come along and tell you
if you have any credible sources because they believe those news sites are biased and then turn face and tell you
to check out some story posted on infowars or breitbart as if it was the cradle of civilization.
I agree with you all news needs to be investigated.
I think the problem comes in with all the disinformation that's laid out there making coherent research
sometimes almost impossible. There is no such thing as conservatives and liberals..Those are just paradigms
that have been so warped and twisted from their original intentions and ideologies that they resemble more
what "elephant" would become after a game of telephone with 50 people.
Having the power of the internet is not only reserved for those that want to do good.

Why is twitter not on any fake news list? They are the sole purpose of so much of the fake news around the world.

Someone sends a tweet and a news outlet runs with it immediately just to get the scoop .

Think about it all the celebrity death hoaxes were started on twitter. so many hoaxes have started with just a stupid random tweet.

Like cnn ran porn in Boston.

So why not crack down on the true source for almost all hoaxes?


The fact that MSM actually runs with unsubstantiated stories just goes to show that journalistic integrity is null across the board.

That makes them all fake news by proxy and just as guilty of it.

No doubt and it's a sad sad thing to watch happen. It is incredibly disheartening

Indeed they can.
Just like legally police don't have to save or protect you from anything.

Just lies built on lies reinforced by lies.

Twitter, Facebook, and any other social media site should be shut down. Before social media, weak minded people still remained mentally stable when their candidate lost an election.

Freedom of speech.


What does that have to do with shutting the site down?

Everything. Who exactly would shut the site down if not for the government? Well the government's hands are tied by the First Amendment. The fact you don't understand this (or pretending you don't) disturbs me greatly...

What would Megadrumph do without his twitter to attack people?
His Drumphticons would lose their minds.
He's the biggest fake news of them all.



Is that how all you anti-Trump fellas deal with the truth?

Although i agree with you that social media is a crap source for news under most circumstances , how about we dont shutdown anything and let the people decide what they want to read.


if anything shutdown the propoganda message that snopes or govt controlled sites are fact checkers..

The entire premise of twitter is to provide a platform for speech, in one form or another.

I'm not anti-Drumph my little putin puppet.
I like Trump the reality TV star.
Now it's time to figure out if i'm going to like Trump the president.
So far he hasn't given me much to stand on.

twitter is not the problem - its idiots who uncritically use it as a " source " with absolutly ZERO co-oberating evidence

one would HOPE that no one would run " tail " based soley on the fact that the claim was written in permanent marker on the wall of a public convenience [ toilet ] - but hey - nowadays i am not sure

just to be objective - i note that no one n this thread has had the honesty to address the elephant in the room :

our very own ATS

we have thread after thread where the entire premise is the OPs delusions

but hey - keep on railing against - every other source of alledged " fake news "

That actually brings up an interesting point. Is a news aggregation site "fake news"? Because one could argue that ATS plays the role of one of those in many ways. It's not like ATS members are playing the role of citizen journalists and reporting fresh news or anything. 99% of the news topics on here are just reposts from other sources.

Though expanding on this, we also have the Social Media aspect of it being a forum too, and since there is no unbiased authority to point out what is chafe and what is real you are left up to your own critical thinking skills to decide what is real and what isn't. But you may also recognize this as the same thing that you are supposed to do when reading MSM news. So I'm truly perplexed on the gray area that ATS resides in with its media influence. Though I'm hesitant to call it a "fake news" site.
