    All the news that’s printed to fit. Trump likes the Pravda approach, it sounds like Prada.

      Liberals are so funny. Most of the MSM have been spreading lies and deception, just like Emperor Obama has since he assended to his throne. The media has done its best to get the most corrupt person ever elected, Hillary, into our White House, just like they did for the Emperor. And, when convient, liberals will scream fake news.

        Does your nick not mean “kept eternally pussified”?

        You are an actual, honest-to-God birther. Still. Even the other birthers gave up on that stupid nonsense, but not you.

        Why on Earth do you imagine you should be taken seriously?

        • dbtheonly says:

          Helpy, isn’t this an exact copy of something from a couple of days ago?

          Makes commenting easy, just cut and paste and you’ve got “insta-comment”!

          • I Am Helpy says:

            I just can’t get over the fact that there are still birthers. It blows me away.

          • dbtheonly says:

            First off there’s no guarantee that these clowns aren’t posting something to get a ride out of you. Mama Bear spelled it out about a month ago. They get paid by getting responses.

            Then consider RWMO-land. No doubt there are still those asserting that President Obama’s alleged birth certificate is a forgery.

            There are those who choose to believe despite whatever evidence exists.

          • kep says:

            And there are those poor misguided souls that still believe liberals are going to stay in power. Always blame someone for your failures. First it was because of the FBI’s report. Then it was a miscount. Now it’s the russians. Hilary will NEVER be President, unless its maybe president of some prison book club.

          • dbtheonly says:

            Thank you for proving my point.

            You do know that there is no credible evidence that Hillary’s committed a crime, and the “lock her up” is just Trumpville’s “Daily Hate”.

          • kep says:

            LOL. Martha Stewart was imprisoned because she lied to the FBI. Hillary lied to the FBI, and destroyed evidence, after she was directed not to. If it were not for a covert meeting with Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton, the DoJ should have prosecuted. Now with the DOJ in the Clinton’s pocket, nothing happened, showing just how far down the liberal path we have stumbled.

          • dbtheonly says:

            If… should…

            Didn’t.

            BTW, that “covert” meeting took place in a public area and was widely reported at the time.

            You’re making stuff up. Asserting it’s true.
            And blaming others for not acting on the stuff you’ve made up.

          • kep says:

            Guess you’re right. It is only covert if no one knows about it. The ONLY reason anyone knows is because one of the airport workers saww Bill and tipped off a media friend.

          • kep says:

            The only reason it was public was because an airport employee saw Bill and tipped off a media friend. Not made up.

          • kep says:

            Yeah. I know. The ruling elite, like that in the Soviet Union , are above the laws. Lying to the FBI is a crime for all but the Hillarys of this country

          • dbtheonly says:

            Do you really not see how inconsistent you’re being?

            Hillary Clinton is a member of the “elite” and is thus protected but Martha Stewart isn’t.

          • kep says:

            Not inconsistent at all. Hillary is one of the “ruling elite”, like a high ranking communist party member in the old Soviet Union. Martha is just wealthy. She was convicted for lying to the FBI. Hillary SHOULD be convicted under the SAME laws.

          • dpaano says:

            Sometimes it pays to repeat oneself!!!

      • Arnie says:

        Here is how fake news works: Can you tell me or anyone what make Hillary Clinton corrupt? Give examples of it and only what is backed up by fact and not by what you or someone else thinks. How is Pres. Obama an emperor? Show an example in the same way as above. Can you convince anyone that what you’re saying is truly so and you want to win an argument, trying to get people on your side. I hear all these things about these people and when I check going to at least 5 sourses I can’t find any of what you’re say is true. Are you saying if a guy like Rush Limbaugh says so, without support, that its’ so? He does have quite a few of his own problems which includes drug use. I wouldn’t trust him. So Mr. kep, can you answer any of my questions. If you can’t, what’s the point of all this?

        • Bill P says:

          Kep’s standard reply will be “Liberal lies” and that will be all. No proof is ever offered.

        • dbtheonly says:

          Arnie,

          The point?

          Jerking your chain.

        • kep says:

          I’ve played this game before. Anything I produce would not be an approved liberal propaganda sourse, and you would dismiss it out of hand. All liberals ever do is recycle regime propaganda, over and over. Cyclic self affirmation. Open your mind a bit, then your eyes will follow, but you need to take that first step toward recovery by yourself.

    What the right-wing media is doing will sooner or later amount to increased physical violence, and they know lots of sturdy hateful nitwits will be on its side. Let’s be hopeful this does not mean civil war some time soon.

  3. Dpaano says:

    Of course this is exactly what this article says it is….a downright attempt from rightwing news media to try to make the people of this nation THINK that the REAL news is actually FAKE news! It’s getting to the point where none of us are going to EVER know the difference, and that’s going to be really bad for this nation. If we can’t believe ANY news media, who CAN we believe?

  4. dpaano says:

    Of course this is exactly what the article states…..rightwing media is doing it’s best to make people in this nation THINK that REAL news is actually FAKE news. One of these days, we’ll get to the point where we won’t know WHICH IS WHICH, and that will be pitiful. If we can’t believe anything we read or hear, who DO we believe? We can’t believe many of our politicians; we can’t believe even nonpartisan newspapers or news programs…..who do we believe? As for Sean Hannity….anyone who actually believes him has a screw loose!

  5. A D Reed says:

    It has been part of Soviet-style propaganda for more than 70 years to put out fake news on a constant basis so as to undermine legitimate reporting and the credence that the public gives it. This technique has also been used by the right wing in the US for at least 50 years, from claims that tobacco was not carcinogenic, to assertions that medical abortions caused more physical and psychological harm than full-term pregnancies, that global warming is “a hoax” …

    The right has always understood that most people are ignorant and lazy about learning facts, and therefore gullible when given repeated assertions that reinforce the comfort zone of their preconceived notions. (For those who will nag, “The Soviet Union was left-wing, not part of the right,” I say Bullshit. The moment the Stalinists took control of the Soviet, they established right-wing collectives wherein the oligarchs were simply party members rather than private capitalists.)

    The facts of the Russian coup against the U.S., using Trump and his minions and followers as useful idiots, will never be accepted by those who voted for him. Even when the new regime begins aligning itself with international norms of right-wing oligarchy–taking over nation-states from the Philippines to Israel, selling off national parks, privatizing public schools and highways and infrastructure systems–the rubes will insist that he is “making America great again.”

    And until that happens, and more and more of the rubes themselves reach retirement age without Social Security or Medicare, and find themselves relying on their equally poor children for support in their old age, will the nation be ready for its next revolution. I hope I’m still around to see it.
