Then don't focus on it anymore.

Americans don't believe the media.

Major victory. But instead of gloating or becoming complacent, concentrate on exposing other institutions that have strangleholds on our minds.

Like the f# schools and the pedophile ideologues running them, for instance. The third rail of social criticism.

But move on from bitching about the media. We get it. At this point, every time you link to a CNN article--even in criticism--you're justifying their continued existance with your clicks.

So just ignore them. Stop circulating their stories for them and take the battle to fields untaken.

I’m convinced, the news has been fake for years. When it came from the Soviet’s it was callled propaganda. The US news media is just as guilty today as the communist ever were.

The big number there is the number of Independents.

The media have destroyed their own credibility. Trump is just the messenger.

Only 72%?

So, 28% of Americans are still stupid, then?


100% of Americans believe biased polls are accurate 72% of the time.

It's science.

News and news programming isn't about "news" .... it's about ratings and selling advertising so you can buy your depends and plastic sh!t.

It's just business. Capitalism and free enterprise. Making money for the stockholders the American way!! MAGA!!

It's a BS headline.

The actual question is;



How often do you think traditional major news sources report news they know to be fake, false, or purposely misleading?


That's Fake, False or Purposely Misleading.

I hope I don't have to expand on why it's bullsh!t.

Your reply only reinforces my beliefs that you do not read...
You didn't even bother to read my post before replying.
Nor , do I believe , do you remember what your original post stated.

Well, reading beyond Breitbart and going to the source they also say this....



When it comes to vetting news sources, roughly half of both parties say they, “stick to news sources they trust.” However, Democrats are more likely to take additional steps to verify what they’ve read than Republicans, according to survey responses.


A good example is you and this thread.

That's the best poll to get an understanding of just how many people have Trump Derangement Syndrome. 28% it is because you'd have to be seriously mentally compromised to NOT think the media deliberately spread fake news.

20% are probably "uncertain" and 8% believe everything the MSM tells them. Sound about right? Should be 100% seeing through the BS but we're not so lucky...

A poll about fake news being released by the news..

72% of me thinks this is fake.

Not the news...

I think it’s a straight forward question.
As an independent I sense the dems have yet
to accept the fact their party gov and
darlings NBC and PBS, lie to them.
Often .Easily.
Newspapers to Internet.
The Dems are going to feel broken,
party is everything. Republicans have excepted
their fate and have “moved on” ironically.
Just 2 cents as I don’t give a flip about either.

Pretty much. It's basically a cult now. Remember this gem a few months ago?


New Yorker journalist Ronan Farrow said some of the victims of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s alleged abusive behavior were warned to stay silent “for the good of the Democratic Party” and out of fear that the top cop in the Empire State would use wiretaps against them.

Farrow made the assertion on CNN Tuesday morning as the fallout of his explosive report continues:

“A lot of their friends and loved ones said, ‘Don’t do it. Don’t speak out against him. And in some cases, that was because they feared the risk of reprisals. They feared him threatening people — using his office and power to say he could wiretap people or he could come after people. But also in some cases, Alisyn, those friends warned them off of talking because they thought that he had the power to do too much good for the Democratic Party.”


That's some Jim Jones- or David Koresh-type #.
