People have been up in arms about “fake news” from the right wing websites. When I say people, I mean anyone on the left.
They think that somehow sites like ours had changed the mind of the nation before election night and that contributed to Donald Trump’s election win. Yea, it couldn’t have been the 8 years of decline, racial tensions that haven’t been seen since the 1960s, a candidate as corrupt as a mobster, or the fact that Americans were completely fed up with everything the left has done to disenfranchise them, right? Nah couldn’t be that. IT’S TOTALLY TRUMP’S FAULT. They just want a scapegoat for their own short comings.
In the wake of their failures, and the election of Trump, the mainstream media has declared war on the conservative right websites that have an opinion about anything that doesn’t fit their agenda. It’s sickening, it leads to racism against conservatives, and it leads to riots where people get seriously hurt or killed.
Fake news has been at the center of this entire issue and it’s been said that fake news helped Trump get elected. Well then, let’s hear what a politician says about fake news.
“This list contains the culprits who told us that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and lied us into multiple bogus wars,”according to a report on his website, Ron Paul Liberty Report. Paul claims the list is sourced and “holds a lot more water”than a list previously released by Melissa Zimdars, who is described on Paul’s website as “a leftist feminist professor.”
“These are the news sources that told us ‘if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,’” he said. “They told us that Hillary Clinton had a 98% of winning the election. They tell us in a never-ending loop that ‘The economy is in great shape!’”
Paul’s list includes the full names of the “fake news” journalists as well as the publications they write for, with what appears to be hyperlinks to where the allegations are sourced from.
But wait, there’s more.
CNN is Paul’s biggest alleged culprit, with nine entries, followed by the NY Times and MSNBC, with six each.
So the majority of fake news is from the left? YOU DON’T SAY!
Also listed is NY Times journalist Maggie Haberman, whom leaked emails showed working closely with Clinton’s campaign to present the Democratic candidate in a favorable light.
So-called ‘fake news’ has been recently attacked by US President Barack Obama, who claimed that false news shared online may have played a role in Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential election.
Let’s put something to be once and for all. We know the left. We know the right. If you can sit there, look us, the right, in the eye, and say that a totally random person in Iowa sharing a post with a headline saying how corrupt Hillary is to his or her mostly conservative friends has any bearing on this election, you have completely lost touch with reality.
This is YOUR fault, it has nothing to do with opinion. And that’s what it is, opinion. It wasn’t fake news when every single one of you were going after George W. Bush and character assassinating him over literally anything he said. So now that you lost, you blame us and have a temper tantrum like a spoiled little 5 year old.
You lost, get over it, move on like adults, and kindly shut the f*** up. You can speak again in 4 year’s time.
