I understood the reporter was doing a play by play of the fake action. So they lied and they lied again.

Yeah, your pres has reported this already.

What has ATS become? "Lets re-tell Trumps tweets" daily?

What have you become. Defending fake news.

Fake news is bad. It should be pointed out every time.

Thread #2 (posted on Oct, 15 2019 @ 00:11)
Thread #3 (posted on Oct, 15 2019 @ 10:49), this thread.

Is this multitude of thread okay, Mods?

My understanding is that it's ok if they're all posted to different forums, which these all are.

Personally, I do think we need government involvement... to enforce one simple rule:

Any news story that is retracted must have the retraction aired during the same time slot as the original story, for at least double the amount of air time dedicated to the original story. If ABC aired this clip for an hour during prime time, they get to air their apology for two hours during prime time.

Is it mentioned on the front page of a newspaper? Fine. the retraction must be of the same size as the original story and be on the front page for two days.

Is it on Twitter? Fine. The retraction has to stay there until it get twice as many hits. likes, or whatever the currency du jour is. And it must be bumped back to the top each day.

Easy.

Great Idea ! Bet we would see far less " mistakes " if this was the rule.

We have redress in the judicial system for both libel and slander. If something that is broadcast is false those are the proper means to legally deal with the matter.

Seems fair. I also believe that politicians who present information that is false and they know, or are in a capacity where they SHOULD know that it is false, should be publicly censured on the first offense and removed from their position on the second offense. That would pretty much clear out DC and absolutely clear out the WH.

MSM will not go out of business because people feel like they are trusted. People's bias also plays a role in them staying in power. A right-leaning person will vividly point out all the errors and bias in CNN or MSNBC, but at the same time, watch Fox or OAN news everyday.

Then, we have to support new companies with better journalism and freedom from agenda-driven news. There's still plenty of journalist like that, but im not sure there are any big news organization that hold that standard to a tee.
