• Since just five mega corporations now own and operate the news media with controlling interests and near monopolies just barely sneaking under the enforcement of anti-trust laws (link).



• Since the elimination of the 'Fairness Act'; the 'perverse move' of giving media corporations 'free speech rights' and the complete domination of small independent stations (link).



• Since the passing of the 'Telecommunications Act' where all existing safeguards were flushed down the toilet and 'rules of the airwaves were rewritten and all regulation thrown out' (link).



• Since the extremely close connection between the corporate media and intelligence agencies and the known programmes to infiltrate and control U.S. journalism (link).



Since all that it looks like it's time for (drumroll) ..'The 4th Annual Fake News Awards'.






From the palatial living room studios of The Corbett Report it’s the 4th Annual Fake News Awards. The boldest lies. The stupidest propaganda. The ugliest presstitution. Join James as he debunks the lies and shames the liars behind the biggest fake news stories of 2020. Who will take the Dino for the worst fake news story of the year? Watch and find out!

Fake news used to have a clear & honest definition... but since Trump, it’s just come to mean any news that doesn’t agree with your own point of view.

As it stands, we got people calling out CNN as fake news, well using gateway pundit and breitbart as sources to prove it!

We do not need Brietbart or GWP to see that CNN
is propaganda mixed with outright lies.

The enemy of the people!

They are most definitely fake news. They are beyond biased. They are bought and paid for by your leftist politicians and their masters. They outright lie.

You need to get a grip. But you won’t, because you are too controlled by your “biased” CNN and MSNBC and ABC and NPR.

Will you ever wake up and look back at your brainwashing with horror? I doubt it, but I hope so.

How so?

I use CNN as a tool to get live news, we’ll recognising they are highly biased... Unlike some of the members here who constantly use brietbart as a source, as if everything they report is unbiased fact.

Thanks for the post mate, think the division between politics and corporation is almost indistinguishable these days but when it comes to the five controlling news megacorps then it seems the one thing they all like to do is promote division.

Don't know who Will Durant is but think he got it spot on in this quote:



"The political machine triumphs because it is a united minority acting against a divided majority." 

Will Durant



Also tirns out that it's now perfectly legal for news channels to bullsh•t the general public:



"We paid $3 billion for these television stations, we'll decide what the news is. The news is what we tell you it is." 

Fox General Manager


Court Rules: News Media Can Lie


Cheers.

This is the kind of thing the left has been saying for decades.

Are you a Marxist?

Quote for hilarity.

How oblivious some people are.

Gatewaypundit is much more reliable then CNN. Even snopes has more credability at this point.

You openly reveal your own ignorance by that comment.

Only reason you claim that is because gatewaypundit caters to your personal political ideology.

CNN takes actual events and concocts a fictional narrative around them in order to forward their bias.

Much like how a writer of fiction novels does.

Yes, I do believe that is the definition of being bias.

Keen observation.

Bias is a noun. One cannot be bias.

Biased is an adjective. One can be biased. And just about everyone is. It's how they act upon their bias which matters.

Our soon to be former president acted bigly on his bias(es), and lied a lot.

Or maybe it was just "alternative facts."

I remember at the beginning of the Covid out break CBS falsely used footage from an Italian hospital and said it was a US hospital.

The onion that is literally satire is better news than cnn.

It is easier to brainwash a man than it is to convince a man he has been brainwashed......

If Joe Biden's coup is successful, CNN will be forced to another country by 75 million angry U.S. Patriots.
