They Are Still Lying To Us


Lots of noise about "fake news" in the headlines. I suspect when president-elect Trump is sworn in, there will be some accounting going on about the fake news propagated by the media during Obama's years. Trump has even said things to that effect, that he's going to get to the bottom of the corruption, drain the swamp, he says. Well, I hope so because there are a few things about fake news that need to be revealed to the American public.

You may have noticed the irony in that the mainstream media has the nerve to lecture everyone else about “fake news” when they are the primary source of fake news on a consistent basis stretching back for years.

Fake news stories and fake narratives put out by the mainstream media have resulted in deaths, destruction and people’s lives being ruined.

The most harmful fake news is routinely published by the mainstream media. They are the main progenitors of fake news. Fake news is used to confuse and stir up voters. Here are some more obvious examples of fake news:

Leader of the Rebel forces.
– The fake news that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and that Iraq was involved in 9/11, dutifully regurgitated without question by the mainstream media, resulted in hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis, thousands of dead and injured U.S. troops, and the destabilization of an entire continent.

– The fake news that the rebels in Syria were “moderates” who did not have jihadist sympathies and should be supported led to the destruction of Syria, Libya and the rise of ISIS.

– The fake news narrative that the media was balanced in its coverage of the presidential election was completely obliterated when Wikileaks emails revealed that countless mainstream media reporters were in bed with the Clinton campaign, feeding them debate questions beforehand and conspiring with Hillary’s staff to portray her in a positive light.

– The fake news that George Zimmerman was obsessed with Trayvon Martin’s race before the altercation that led to Martin’s death was accomplished by means of NBC deceptively editing an audio tape. This incident stoked racial tensions across the country and laid the groundwork for the violent ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement that was to follow.

– The fake news that produced the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative, which was proven to be completely fraudulent, led to riots, violent attacks and looting in Ferguson, Missouri, as well as numerous other U.S. cities. Even after the rioting began, the mainstream media continued to legitimize the unrest. Fake news outlets continued to parrot the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative even after it was proven false.

– The fake news that saw innumerable people accused of rape at college campuses across America, claims that were proven wrong, ruined people’s lives and perpetuated the myth (fake news) that one in five women are raped on college campuses.

– The fake news that NBC anchor Brian Williams faced enemy fire while helicoptering into Iraq in 2003 was exposed when soldiers who were aboard the helicopter blew the whistle on his lies. Despite admittedly putting out fake news, Williams still has a career in broadcast journalism.

– The fake news narrative that Donald Trump somehow represents the next coming of Hitler has provoked a hysterical anti-Trump hate crime wave across America, with people and property being attacked on a routine basis. The same hysterical fake news narrative was also responsible for violence and riots at Trump events throughout the campaign cycle, as well as assassination attempts on Trump’s life.

– The fake news that Donald Trump had no chance whatsoever of winning the presidential election was proudly pushed by countless mainstream media outlets, with the Huffington Post even predicting that Hillary Clinton had a 98% chance of winning the presidency. When this fake news narrative was completely demolished on November 8, it swept away trust in political polling and the mainstream media to an even greater degree, prompting the backlash that you now see with the corporate press calling everyone else “fake news” when they are the real fake news.

The entire “fake news” narrative being pushed by the mainstream media has nothing whatsoever to do with concerns over people being misled.

If that were the case, the mainstream media itself would stop habitually lying to the American people and it’s trustworthiness wouldn’t be questioned.

The whole “fake news” narrative is part of a dirty tricks campaign to pressure governments, Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other tech giants to censor information that is inconvenient to the establishment, for which the mainstream media serves as a mouthpiece. Additionally, all the hubbub isn't likely to coax people into listening to what Trump may reveal.

The MSM is not happy about dissident voices challenging their monopoly on reality. That’s why they’re forced to resort to underhanded and deceptive means through which to silence ideological opposition.

Here's a shortlist of fake news outlets:

– The New York Times – The Washington Post – CNN
– NBC News – MSNBC – CBS News
– ABC News – Salon.com – The Huffington Post
– Rolling Stone – BBC News
– Sky News – Financial Times – Politico
– New York Daily News – L.A. Times – USA Today
– US News & World Report – CBC – Gawker
– Newsweek – Time – Business Insider
– Daily Beast – VICE – Yahoo News
– Daily Kos – Young Turks – Slate
– NPR – PBS – Raw Story
– New Yorker – Buzzfeed – MoveOn
– Think Progress – Media Matters – Wonkette
– Center for American Progress – Little Green Footballs – The Economist

MSM no longer serves its function to the citizen
Did you hear that under the guise of tackling “fake news,” Google is removing search results that pertain to crime statistics that show black people commit more crimes, despite the fact that this is widely documented to be true.

An article in the Guardian entitled Google ‘must review its search rankings because of rightwing manipulation’ details how “leading academics” are pressuring Google to artificially edit its search algorithm to prevent certain subjects from appearing at the top of its search rankings.

In response, the piece notes that Google has removed search results that suggest “black people commit more crimes.” Negative results about the religion of Islam were also removed. Why would they do that?

This is alarming given that virtually every metric proves that criminality is more prevalent in black communities compared to white and Hispanic communities in America. It’s an uncomfortable fact that black people commit more crimes than any other race in America, but it’s a fact nonetheless. Claiming that reality is actually “fake news” because it suits your political stance doesn’t change the nature of reality.

While it is understandable that Google would want to prevent neo-nazi content from appearing at the top of its search rankings, the fact that the tech giant is now censoring objective facts under the justification of tackling “fake news” is chilling.

This indicates that Google, along with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social media sites, are using the excuse of “fake news” to bury factual information that is inconvenient to leftist political narratives.

It could be, though, all this will come to light when Trump takes over and possibly reveals the depth of corruption in our government and in our institutions -- much of it at the cost of party politics.This fake news business? It is meant to cloud and obfuscate matters when the real truth is revealed.

Edit: Hey, just for fun, here is a list of some of the communists in the MSM who colluded with the Clinton campaign:
