You'll love this...

A month ago I was like 15min late finishing something, and I knew the guy is a huge mega Democrat so when I turned the corner I said:

"I know I'm 15 minutes late but it was Trump's fault".

He laughed a lot then didn't even remember I was late. It totally worked.

Just watch.
We will get too wise to the low live MSM propagandists,
And congress will vote on complete internet black out for months pre elections.

This country has been using the MSM to influence elections for quite some time. It's fairly predictable at this point. Didn't need to be here and read this to know that. This post is only going to serve as an echo chamber and troll magnet, obviously.

But I do read to see the interactions between both sides. I'm always hoping I'll see someone trying to defend these things, but it's always just the trolling...

The term "You live by the sword, you die by the sword" comes to mind...

Ok say you think the MSM< is now no better than conspiracy theorists on websites?

And you also think that investigations should be launched and people charged for spreading this fake news after the election, such as has happened with russian trolls.

That would be "live by the sword, die by the sword"

I've never put much stock in the MSM, despite what some think.

And I was leaning more towards how the right wing nut jobs are happy to sling unfounded mud at those they hate, then get all upset when that same mud gets slung at those that they have placed on a pedestal.

And it does go both ways, before you say it, there's just a lot more right wing nut jobs to do the slinging than there is lefties on ATS.

I didn't even pay attention to pizzagate, I knew it probably was just made up. I did kind of pay attention to some stuff about Hillary and her sidekick with young men in other countries though, but those guys looked like they were over eighteen. Of course that would explain why Hillary couldn't walk some times.

Usually with all belivable lies there is a little truth that is being twisted. if there is truth in a lie more people will believe it. I don't know one person locally that even considered believing pizzagate, maybe some that are not that quick did believe it initially but that was straightened out pretty quick. Hillary messed up enough, she did not need lies to be created to lose the election.

I just cannot see Trump as a child trafficker. That doesn't appear to be his style, he could possibly have set people up with an escort service, I can see his lawyers doing that for him. I doubt if he would be calling anybody himself, his time is more valuable than that.

There has been a pattern noticed that the gang on the left usually accuses someone on the right of doing something that later turns out to have been something that someone on the left was actually doing.

I assume there will be charges laid on the clintons and the Obamas soon. Two words, Jeffrey Epstien

Yeah those bastards.
They air the political advertising that every candidate sponsors with their personal approval.

I hate election season for this very reason.

Democrats are once again colluding with the media in hopes of stealing elections.

Well this week we have seen msm contributors push two fake news stories about trump harming children.

the first was a photo of chained children supposedly from Trump policy of separating children, and they were furious at how horrible this was.



Speaking of FAKE NEWS, perhaps you can direct me to where "MSM" "Push"(ed) these pictures?

As best I can tell it was Twitter, which no one would consider independently reliable or MSM.

No doubt, I have seen the right wing CLAIM that Mainstream Media pushed these pictures as Trump era, but I haven't actually seen any links to CNN, NPR, NBC, AP or other outlets considered MSM.

Your OP appears to be FAKE NEWS.

Yet strangely, the reaction to Ms. Ryans statement, an actual msm personality claiming donald trump may be running a child sex trafficking ring, is far less severe.

I wonder why that is?



Because she never "claimed Donald trump may be running a sex ring"????

JUST THE OPPOSITE.

The article was SATIRE and actually MOCKED people that strung together ugly conspiracy from unrelated facts.

The Article she linked to:



Now, of course, none of this means that Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump are part of some vast conspiracy to sell minority children to the highest bidder like some scene out of Taken 4: Bad Hombres.

This could all just be a series of unfortunate policies and events. It could just be white nationalism at work, destroying black and brown families seeking a better life, and demonstrating a careless disregard for nonwhite children.

However, why be hamstrung by the facts, as bad as they are? Trump has shown America that you can get away with whatever salacious, ridiculous and unfounded conspiracy you want as long as you say it loudly enough and find enough other people to repeat it.

Damn, your OP is TWO for TWO in the FAKE NEWS department.

Neither of your examples were what you said they were.

If was people that work in the msm

I got you though

Random online people talking about pizza hate = stole election

Msm people placing pics of caged kids online and saying it was because of trump when it was obama = just fine and NOT msm doing it

Correct, it was satire, but the sad fact is that the tens of thousands of people who liked, forwarded or retweeted never bothered to read it - they only read the headline accusing Trump and it satisfied their hivemind.

So no, the article didn't suggest it, but yes the headline did and that's what does the damage in this social media world. I suggest she either didn't read it either and also assumed it was a smear on Trump, or she knew the headline would be damaging enough for the lefty mindset.

Wow, you COMPLETELY missed the issue with the photo scandal. I can't be bothered typing it all out again on my phone - I suggest you find the ATS thread on it and brush up...

It's funny you mention hypocrisy. As a pro-Trumper.

Maybe someday you can find the irony.



You're using irony wrong. Gramblers thread must be great since you can't actually say what he's wrong about.
