In an era of pure propaganda, activist media networks, planted stories, shilling for foreign wars and glorifying smut, it is encouraging that many Americans are starting to get the idea that they are constantly being lied to.
Search engine and advertising monolith Google continued to press its offensive against alternative media this week with an announcement unveiling a new $300 million project called the Google News Initiative.
At most major airport in America, far-left CNN’s presence is as ubiquitous as the Starbucks and the four-dollar Snickers bar. But now that the last-place network has taken a sharp turn to the left of even MSNBC, people are starting to question why.
In war a soldier could be shot, blown up, skewered, incinerated, or killed in many unimaginable ways. With video games a player could develop a sprained thumb and, over time, obesity. According to Rolling Stone however, video games are way way more violent than actual war. I can only assume the leftist at RS have never fought in a war or even seen news coverage of real combat.
“BREAKING ‘Dangerous and devious’ Surrey teenager jailed for life for Parsons Green Tube bombing, in which 51 people injured’, read the social media post — earning a string of incredulous responses from users who felt the broadcaster was attempting to obscure Hassan’s origins as a supposed alleged ‘child refugee’.
A giant island of plastic floating in the Pacific Ocean holds as much as 16 times more debris than was previously thought, posing a significant threat to the food chain, scientists said on Thursday.
The left-wing “investigative journalism” site ProPublica, a non-profit funded in part by far-left billionaire George Soros, was forced to walk back an attack piece aimed at Gina Haspel, President Trump’s pick to lead the CIA.
The BBC is launching a new scheme to help young people identify real news and filter out fake or false information.
The project is targeted at secondary schools and sixth forms across the UK.
From March, up to 1,000 schools will be offered mentoring in class and online to help them spot so-called fake news.
BBC journalists including Kamal Ahmed, Tina Daheley, Amol Rajan and Huw Edwards will also take part in events aimed at helping students.
So he’s noticed and cares?
From Amber Athey at Daily Caller:
Comedian Bill Maher said on his HBO show Friday night that too many news outlets — including BuzzFeed and Huffington Post — try to stir up fake controversies as opposed to actually reporting the news. More.
Reality check: Well, obviously. They can’t stand the actual news. It’s not The Narrative. And it’s not welfare.

In an age when everywhere we look, someone is tippy tapping away on his phone, the necrotic Canadian media could only ever be an amplifier for government propaganda, and many of them sound like they are rehearsing for the part. The news, whatever it is, will usually be elsewhere.
Liberals are wrong. The trickle-down effect exists. As the opinions editor of a mid-sized daily newspaper in Florida, I attest that it does.
It surfaces nearly every time President Donald Trump utters the words “fake news.” Trump’s signature rhetorical salvo at his foils in the national media drives some of our local pro-Trump readers to lump all journalists together. Thus, our paper’s reporters, who work diligently to serve and enlighten their community, and who don’t come within a thousand miles of Washington, still become the local Jim Acosta.
Admittedly, as a journalist, I find this situation frustrating. But absorbing and dealing with our readers’ objections about the news media is not nearly as frustrating as watching the national media’s hyperventilating, and often panicky, response to much of Trump’s Twitter-fed bombast.
Wasn’t it just two weeks ago that the Toronto Star, official newspaper of the Liberal Party ran with the screaming headline about fixing fake news?
“Trudeau to Facebook: Fix your fake news problem or face stricter regulations,” said the Star on February 8th. The article went on to detail how Trudeau had warned Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg about the issue back in November during a meeting in Vietnam.
And yet here we are, two weeks later and the prime minister is using his own national security advisor Daniel Jean to peddle a fake news conspiracy theory as to why and how a terrorist and would be assassin was welcomed to India and invited to dinner and a reception with Trudeau’s official tour.
If you don’t use the internet the way Justin Trudeau wants you to, you might just be fake news.
OTTAWA— Welcome to the age of “total information warfare.”
A startling new report released by Canada’s spy agency suggests Western democracies are facing a wide range of threats from disinformation and propaganda campaigns.
The culprits range from a 20-something in Kosovo pushing out “fake news” to make a quick buck, to hyper-partisans trying to influence domestic politics, to sophisticated influence campaigns from hostile nations trying to exploit existing divisions in Western society.
But the report points to a common thread: the use of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to publish disinformation at a time when traditional journalism’s authority is under threat.
Traditional journalism’s authority? Partisan rags like the Star squandered that long ago. It’s only going to get worse when Justin put’s them on the payroll. The gatekeeper’s committed suicide, we didn’t kill them.
CNN reached out directly to The Daily Caller to deny the claim made by a Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor in regard to Wednesday night’s gun safety town hall in Florida.
Colton Haab, a JROTC enlistee who has previously spoken with media outlets about how he helped his peers seek shelter during the shooting, did not take part in Wednesday’s event on the grounds that CNN attempted to plant “scripted” questions for him to ask.
No, Fidel Castro Is Not Canada PM Trudeau’s Father
A story claiming that Fidel Castro was the father of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not true. The Canadian government denied it, Cuba has never claimed it and Trudeau’s parents never visited Cuba until several years after Justin Trudeau was born.
The Feb. 1 suicide of Castro’s oldest son, Fidelito, spurred the most recent report on several sites, claiming that Fidelito left a suicide note referring to Justin Trudeau as his half-brother. A theory that Castro was Trudeau’s father was also shared widely on social media after Castro’s death in 2016, when Trudeau caused an uproar over remarks praising the late Cuban leader.
The Canadian government denied the reports this week. Justin Trudeau was born on Dec. 25, 1971, to the late Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his wife, Margaret.
I don’t believe any of this. Denial proves it’s true.
