EXAMINING THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA

Consigned to the memory hole: the content of the DNC leaks

Hidden from the (FAKE NEWS) media narrative of Russian cyber sabotage is the content of the DNC leaks, and how the leaks revealed the arrogance and corruption of the Democratic Party elite.

Amidst the blame Russia hysteria, the actual content of the the Democratic National Committee (DNC) hacks has been consigned to the memory hole. In a veritable tidal wave of false narratives, the mainstream media has succeeded in drowning the legacy of the leaks in (not terribly convincing) accusations of Russian culpability.

Snopes Conveniently Silent on WaPost’s Dangerous FAKE NEWS Story About Russia Hacking US Power Grid

Snopes, one of the new arbiters of Fake News for Facebook, has been utterly remiss in its fact-checking duties by failing to report the false allegation the Russians hacked into Vermont’s power grid — perhaps because the original claim appeared in the Washington Post.

But for whatever reason, Snopes — whose CEO David Mikkelson stands accused by ex-wife Barbara Mikkelson of embezzling company money to hire prostitutes — simply didn’t bother to report on the Post’s dangerous assertion Russian state actors had tampered with critical infrastructure.

Washington Post latest blunder proves FAKE NEWS is fine... if it involves Russia

The Thing That Got the Media Screaming FAKE NEWS!

Yes Pizzagate. The whole FAKE NEWS thing was started by some of the same people who brought you the decades long Jimmy Saville cover up and the British elite pedophile cover up just after the Pizzagate conspiracy burst globally across the Internet. So, what the hell is Pizzagate? This video will take you through most of it to date.

Those who want to combat FAKE NEWS should stop aggressively spreading it when it suits their agenda

Julian Assange is a deeply polarizing figure. Many admire him and many despise him (into which category one falls in any given year typically depends on one’s feelings about the subject of his most recent publication of leaked documents).

But one’s views of Assange are completely irrelevant to this article, which is not about Assange. This article, instead, is about a report published this week by The Guardian that recklessly attributed to Assange comments that he did not make. This article is about how those false claims — fabrications, really — were spread all over the internet by journalists, causing hundreds of thousands of people (if not millions) to consume false news.

Disgraced ex-NBC ‘fake news’ journalist Brian Williams on crusade against false reporting

Journalist Brian Williams has become the latest person to slam ‘fake news,’ claiming it influenced the US election. But there’s some irony in his apparent defense of quality journalism, as he was let go from his NBC gig last year for… reporting fake news.

“Fake news played a role in this election and continues to find a wide audience,” Williams said on MSNBC on Wednesday night.
