Lately, we have heard all about Fake News, and lies perpetuated by the MSM. Some think it's the other side who does this, and some are smart enough to realize it's all of them. But is the new? Is this something that Trump did? Well, not if you put down your hateoraid.



This video is from a while ago, you can tell based on the stories they use as examples. And this kind of deception has been going on for a long time. The video is long, and you don't need to watch the whole thing to get the idea, but the longer you watch, the more you realize that what the MSM is doing is the same thing they have been doing. They are just crying about being caught now.

This isn't a left vs right idea, but it will be interesting to see how the "my team vs. your team" players will deal with this.

Being lied to sucks no matter who is doing the lying.

The media rarely lie, at least mainstream media. They may have misleading headlines, but when you actually read the stories you will rarely find lies there, except when it comes to the war on white people and pushing Islam.

Good thinking......the same phrases 150 years ago as today.....in all sectors of public

This must just be a simulated reality to instruct us humans........

Let us get some time in the seat before we get to heaven

A 1907 speech uses the same worries as today.......

Abe Lincoln was griping the BANKERS were worse than the war

The biggest fake news comes right from the mouth of our president. Why call out any news org if you (not you personally) are not willing to call out our president for telling lies.

"The media" is what I have issues with. There are honest journalists too.

That's a problem, for sure. The President with his own lies is making lying acceptable in media. Why should his supporters care about lies in media, when they have already excused Trump.

If they're not lying to push an agenda, they are trying to sensationalize the news to sell it. There's always been a bias. I'm sure even the ancient Greeks and Romans were biased. It's the nature of the thing.

They say Pearl Harbor was allowed to draw the US into the war. The moon landing was fake. It's not just the media.

Trump is by far the biggest purveyor of fake news, downright lies and delusional statements!

Under reasons of national interest and security the media may tow the party line, example Iraq war. They take that information in good faith

IF it’s BS like Iraq, they will rip apart the governments who fed them that

So no Op, on whole the media is not fake news

Trump has made 4000+ false or misleading statements since taking office.

Just sayin...



“Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn’t matter because there was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!”


That one alone he used 110 times!

If that's true it's saying something. You gotta be one heck of a liar to top the democrat bs.

Most media has a left or right political bias and will spin stories to suit that bias. It’s been like that for a long time. Propaganda is another kettle of fish. Independent investigative journalism is a rare thing in the MSM.

Its kind of deranged how a thread about the media that lies turns into a pathetic Trump argument.

Lets go back a bit for sanity purposes.
Iraq and WMDS,The Gulf of Tonkin....I could go on and on.

Really...its Trump??

In U.K. most media stay as best they can neutral middle and on stories they will book people from both sides of the polical seesaw to balance things out

Even with the Salisbury nerve agent story the main news were booking Russian mouth pieces to give the Russian side to it
