Let me preface this thread that I have zero proof, nor computer expertise to verify my suspicions.
Yet, the recent diatribes on 'Fake News' seems to have evolved into an intent to curtail alternate media. For myself, it's more of connecting the
dots than anything else.
I recall Rush having issues with calls for boycotts on local advertisers in various cities. He apparently had it investigated and found that there
were 10 individuals that with advanced programs, generated massive and fake protests from non-existent posters that would be picked up by larger,
so-called legitimate media. ( I believe legal action is ongoing to counter it, but Rush isn't talking about it.)
Then there's the KKK issue at a church where it was massively covered by the MSM and later found to be written by an African-American to make Trump
look bad. There have been one or two that I've seen since then at Universities.
I recall is 'news' report, one that is cited as a major example, where it was announced that the Pope had endorsed Trump. (I actually got sucked in
by it and shared it. Within minutes, it was debunked as fake and I, also, shared that debunk.
This last one set me thinking that no Trump supporter would be that stupid. I would be too easy to debunk and, further, would demean any worth from
that site from that point on.
Is it possible that some idiot Trump supporter would do such a thing? Yes. Here's my thought, it is also possible it was a deliberate move by a left
supporter/s to demean the alternate news sites that exposed data the MSM wouldn't air. This would dove-tail with P.R. against Trump AND to degrade
the support for alternate news sources.
After all, what better way to defuse the power of a non-controlled news source. (Many news items came from Europe and the U.K. that I never saw on the
Is this a likely scenario? I'm not sure. If so, to what degree?
Of course nothing above is proof of anything. I DO feel the thought merits a thread. Shoot it down as you will. I will learn from this.
