Fake news referred to actual fake stories that were being posted on social networks, not stories that backed up with evidence but is then labeled fake because it shatters Donalds Ego, or threatens the reality that his followers are beholden to.

The right took the label and decided to apply it to any news story that doesn't align itself with their narrative or reality. That is why is a trump supporter issue. In the beginning it was a reasonable term used to label news which had been published by actual FAKE sites to shift supporter for either candidate.

And again the right took it, and turned it into their own little weapon whenever they wanted to avoid reality. Now they are using it to discredit the media even when the media has evidence to back up their stories. They will look for one little grammar error, or mis-wording and then deem that as evidence to label something as fake news.

Stop acting like you do not know this.


Actually I did not know that fake news was coined to refer to stories that favored Donald Trump. Your telling me that the MSM started a movement to target news stories that did not align with their own dictation and it blew up in their face? And now your mad?

Fake news was a term coined to highlight fake stories that were posted on Social networks to sway support for EITHER candidate.

Stop acting stupid. You know what I said.

You mean like this recent thread?

Like I said. The MSM started it and it is blowing up in their face. "Either" candidate?? Like the MSM had a balanced view on "either" candidate. Who's pretending now?

I remember when CNN did a report on fake news, and they highlighted both fake news that favored Trump, and Hilary. Just stop it. That thread is sourced through Daily Mail. So they are fake news now because they made a mistake? Tell me, or rather, list all your credible news sources since CNN, MSNBC, FOX, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post are all fake news.

List your top ten credible American news sources that you can trust?

You can't because you know fake news is predicated on whether that news story is against or for Trump. When it is for Trump, it is real and legitimate, they are impartial but, when it criticizes Donald or presents any type of news that is even remotely damaging to his ego or your idealized vision of Donald, you supporters will find any minor discrepancy, even if that minor discrepancy does not effect the whole of the story, and use that as evidence to label it as fake news.

The MSM may have started it, but the right took it to new lows, and is now using it to discredit ANYTHING that poses a thread to their cult-commander and chief. And again when the MSM coined it; it was meant to show fake news stories on BOTH sides.

But again keep pretending as if the MSM coined it just to demonize Trump because that's all they do correct? Even though TRUMP got the most news coverage from all three MSM outlets than all other candidates. You wasn't complaining about Fake news then, huh? When your boy was getting free press and free promotion for his rallies, eh? But no.

Trump is the lonely wittle boy who is just gets a bad rap from everyone. Even though he mocked a disabled reporter, insulted a veteran, suggested a woman was on her period, bragged about the good old days in the 50s and 60s, said he could grab women by the vagina, said he could shoot someone on 5th ave and still keep his voters (which is probably true), asked the Russians to hack the election.

No, he is just getting a bad wrap. Poor little Donald. I am tired of you treating this 70 year old man like he is 6 years old. Hold him accountable. He is a grown ass man.

I don't have a cable box. I have a modem. ATS is my credible news source.

And no. They coined this to pass the 'disinformation and propaganda act' that Obama signed a few weeks ago. Russia election tampering gave it momentum then some guy shooting a gun off at a pizza shop while looking for pedophiles tipped the bill into the net.

But like I said before. MSM is going to wish they never heard the term "fake news" real soon.

So you don't have cable news but you are on here telling me that the MSM is fake news because...? ATS told you? Since you just stated ATS is your main news source.

I love ATS but this is the same site that had threads about John Titor, Timewave Zero and that meteor back in 2006 that was supposed to hit the earth and take us all out (I was 16 at the time and scared out of my mind).

I'm done man.Good night.

That is a nice story about your childhood but I don't care. ATS is where I come to find the facts about any story. Someone here will find them and post them. Now your grasping at straws cause you started an argument and ended up with egg in your face. I bet your done...

You spout nonsense about fake news but you don't even watch the news to even make that independent judgment call, you rely on others, and ATS to provide with the judgment call.

If an article is released about Donald, you are at the mercy of whoever interprets the article. The article could be backed up by evidence but if it is criticizing donald, and the person who you rely on for 'facts' calls it fake news, you will believe them. Why do I constantly bring this up? Because I have YET to see a supporter admit criticism for Donald. Every time an article is released that has justified criticism, you sycophants find some way to label it as fake news.

That is what you are telling me. Perhaps your defense would work back in 2007, when facts mattered on ATS and it wasn't overrun with delusional sycophants. But now, it is worthless and has no significant effect on my previous posts.

ATS Is my credible news source, unbelievable.

If there is a news story worth looking at, it will get posted here. That gives members here an opportunity to pick the story apart and post any information from any other source that counters that story. Then I get to watch people's comment and see things they saw or refused to see or vise versa and then I can decide what to believe on my own after everything that has been found has been posted. It is truest form of journalism. BS does not fly here.

ATS isn't a single poster. It is a community.

You are unbelievable that somebody actually has to explain that to you but then again your just a pup and you have much to learn. Stick around. There is more to teach you. Now go get your mum to tuck you in and we will pick this up tomorrow when your done with your regular studies. Ok?

BS does not fly here? Have you seen the threads that I have read? Post me one thread where a Trump supporter agrees with a justified criticism of Donald. So far I have seen nothing but people making excuses for him.

"Sure,, but okay, he did put CEO Rex Tillerson, and he does have interests in oil, but lets wait and see"

"Sure, he did put Betsy DeVos as SoE, even though she has no experience in the field and her family was one of the highest donors to the republican party BUT, lets wait and see .."

"Sure, he put Ben Carson as head of HUD but..."

"Sure, he hasn't put his businesses in a blind trust, but..."

The list goes on. I love the arrogant tone you adopt, make sure you keep that tone when Donald runs this country into the ground. Keep that tone when his economic policies directly hurt you and your loved ones. I would love to see you struggle to keep that facade up as your loved ones suffer from your lord in chief's mismanagement.

Did you just move the goal posts?? Like I said BS doesn't fly here. You want to take gospel from the weak threads/posts and run with it that's your business.

As as far as your thread drift comments that are meant for the mud pit, I have stated why I support Trump's picks. I'll give you a hint. Hippies and SJW are not successfull at anything they do. They are losers and I do not expect Trump to pick losers. Nobody voted for Trump hoping for Peter butter cup.

Name me one justified criticism that Trump supporters have taken into consideration. You cannot name me one. Everyone single criticism that has been put forth by opposing sides and even those who do not align themselves with a side has either been met with arrogance, dismissal, or flat our denial via 'fake news'.

You cannot name one because every news story that offers this criticism is deemed fake news by your supporters. And here you are, not even a watcher of any news, claiming you get your facts from ATS, where do you think ATS gets their facts from? They get it from the sites you call fake news.

The only difference is ATS members look at it, and deem it fake news if it criticizes Trump. Oh, if it praises Trump it gets the pass, but any criticism will be met with intense scrutiny until anything is found, no matter how trivial, to discredit the article, and THEN it will be called fake news.

You are no better than the people who blindly follow a news source.

*rubs chin*

You know, maybe this is a blessing in disguise.

Maybe since confidence in ALL forms of media is so low...we, the people, need to get off our collective asses and actually participate in world events.

Maybe instead of getting news from the television, we need to attend and be a part of these news-worthy events?

Maybe instead of complaining about the system, we need to become a positive force for change in it? Maybe we need to answer our questions by putting feet on granite and seeing things for ourselves?

If you don't see something yourself, you have to take someone else's word for it. What if, instead, we try to put our own eyes on things as much as possible?

Just a thought...

Hillary should be in prison. It is too soon to judge because I think the FBI still has her in the bag but if she gets away I will be very dissapointed.

His daughter should be first lady. She might still be but it has not been announced yet. His wife is just a nice crotch to grab.

There will be more as time goes.

Well, well, well...

How to spot fake news.

With your eyes, of course.

How to find "non-fake news"? You can't.
The idea of news itself is absurd. It has never been about the spread of valuable information as much as it has been about entertainment and viewers, least long as I've been alive.

As the audience becomes less and less sensitive to the stories, the more that the truth will be stretched to accommodate the shock factor that has been proven to pull the attention that the media so desperately seek.

I come here to ATS. From there we disect and find the truth.

Now I'm a Hypocrite..

But even here there may be 3 sides to every story.
: Yours
:Mine
:And the Truth

One thing is certain, I go out and live life in person. No media, just me. I'm witnessing the truth.

The media is all about control. In the old days, it was about subliminal control; mainly through advertisement and subtle innuendo. The only way folks got news back then was newspapers or word of mouth. Not many folks had radios. When TV came along, there were very few shows. Mainly children programming during the day. News in the evening, and no programming at night. As more and more people brought TV into their homes, the programming changed. The news changed. It went from "Just the facts, ma'am", to "the hell with the facts", just entertain and plant the seeds of the agenda.

People were conditioned to believe the news, like "pics or it didn't happen." It was always and is still all a ruse. It has never been about giving us the truth. It has always been about conditioning us to trust and believe what you are told. We are and have always been wagged.

I believe they expect you to just get your news from Trump because everywhere else is lying about him. All of them, every single news source is in it together, even though almost all of the, are owned by rich conservatives
