16 Fake News Stories Reporters Have Run Since Trump Won

Posted by on Feb 06, 2017 at 1:37 pm

It is difficult to adequately sum up the breadth of this epidemic, chiefly because it keeps growing: day after day, even hour after hour, the media continue to broadcast, spread, promulgate, publicize, and promote fake news on an industrial scale. It has become a regular part of our news cycle, not distinct from or extraneous to it but a part of it, embedded within the news apparatus as a spoke is embedded in a bicycle wheel.

Whenever you turn on a news station, visit a news website, or check in on a journalist or media personality on Twitter or Facebook, there is an excellent chance you will be exposed to fake news. It is rapidly becoming an accepted part of the way the American media are run.

How we will get out of this is anyone’s guess. We might not get out of it, not so long as Trump is president of these United States. We may be up for four—maybe eight!—long years of authentic fake news media hysteria. It is worth cataloging at least a small sampling of the hysteria so far. Only when we fully assess the extent of the media’s collapse into ignominious ineptitude can we truly begin to reckon with it.

Since Trump’s election, here’s just a small sampling of fake news that our media and our journalist class have propagated.

Full story.

    They tried for over a year to destroy Trump why do they think they will be successful now?
    Fake news fairytales are rejected and one only tunes in while under the influence of adult beverages just to point and laugh.
    I admit to watching MSNBC on election night and laughing my ass off at the look on Rachel Madcow’s face.
    Ahahah! I just laughed out loud thinking about that.
