Obama, Libs Whine About ‘Fake News’
As his travesty of a presidency draws to a close, President *Batteries Not Included joins with other Democrat soreheads in blaming ‘fake news’ – especially that provided by the social media – for their defeat in this year’s presidential election.
Don’t you get a kick out of these people? If there’s anybody out there serving up “fake news,” it’s the big-time nooze media–bought and paid for by the Democrat Party. As late as 9:00 on Election Night they were still yapping about a Clinton landslide–and deceiving themselves, and their candidate, with their own fake news.
We can admit that there’s not a lot of quality control on the Internet, and possibly even less among the social media. But is there anybody out there who still believes the New York Times, or Rachel Maddow? And if you do, I have a cardboard time machine I’d like to sell you.
We are about as close as we can come, today, to having no reliable source of news at all. For many years our alleged “professional” noozies have been drifting farther and farther away from anything resembling a set of journalistic ethics. I know about this: I was a newspaper reporter and editor in the 1970s and 80s. “Journalists” today routinely do things that would have been considered utterly beyond the pale, back then–colluding with politicians to suppress news, accepting favors and payments from politicians, weeding out facts in favor of some desired “narrative”… it’s a long list.
So the Dems are angry now–not because the people consumed fake news, often that’s the only kind of news there is, but because they got the wrong fake news! Fake news from CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post–that’s fine. Inaccurate news from regular people posting on the social media–there oughta be a law!
And don’t think there won’t be one, if these rotters ever get back into power.
America really must buckle down to the business of making sure there is never, never, never again another Democrat government.
