FAIR:

Why Are Media Outlets Still Citing Discredited ‘Fake News’ Blacklist?

USA Today (11/25/16), Gizmodo (11/25/16), PBS (11/25/16), The Daily Beast (11/25/16), Slate (11/25/16), AP (11/25/16) The Verge (11/25/16) and NPR (11/25/16) all uncritically wrote up the Post’s most incendiary claims with little or minimal pushback. Gizmodo was so giddy its original headline had to be changed from “Research Confirms That Russia Played a Major Role in Spreading Fake News” to “Research Suggests That Russia Played a Major Role in Spreading Fake News,” presumably after some polite commenters pointed out that the research “confirmed” nothing of the sort.

The CIA and the Press: When the Washington Post Ran the CIA’s Propaganda Network

People who actually keep track of the lies (like here at Political Film Blog), are now the targets of a corporate media smear campaign. Those who oppose US imperialism are of course Russian moles. If it wasn’t so ridiculous I’d spend more time on it…

Washington Post’s ‘Fake News’ Guilt

Failed Investigations of JFK’s Murder

 

“It must be said that the FBI generally exhausted its resources in confirming its case against Oswald as the lone assassin,” the HSCA concluded, “a case that Director J. Edgar Hoover, at least, seemed determined to make within 24 hours of the assassination.”

In essence, the experienced investigators concluded that Hoover had divined the solution to the crime before starting the inquiry, and then his agents confirmed the boss’s epiphany. The intimidated Warren Commission went right along.

 

We should note the counter-culture icon Noam Chomsky sold his soul over this fraud, as well (and his credibility, his ethics, his morality). Rather than backing the obvious lies of the Warren cover-up, Chomsky chose to peddle apathy: “Take for example all this frenzy about the JFK assassination. I mean I don’t know who assassinated him and I don’t care, but what difference does it make?

Through the looking glass.

Chomsky didn’t “care” enough that he wrote an entire book seeking to downgrade Kennedy’s importance.

Hey, Trump voters! Paul Ryan is already coming for your Medicare.

Medicare has got some serious problems because of ObamaCare. Those things are part of our plan to replace ObamaCare. [Fox News]

These are lies. Medicare already has price controls, and in fact ObamaCare probably improved the fiscal position of Medicare and Medicaid. Health care price inflation has been unprecedentedly low since its passage, likely because it contained many cost control measures which appear to be working pretty well. Therefore, repealing it would massively increase the fiscal problems with government health insurance, and bring back the predictions of long-term explosions in deficits.

They literally go to the DNC for their debate questions to ask Donald Trump! Are they a branch of the Clinton campaign? Too lazy to do any journalism themselves? Did this break any election laws? Should it?

Cozy with CNN, silencing journalists & pinning it on Putin

They keep on validating what the extreme right is claiming. Hillbots should be too ashamed to vote for this witch.

CNN is looking for questions. Please send some topical/interesting ones.”

WASHINGTON POST implicated too:

Aside from CNN, the DNC also provided content for Washington Post columnist, Dana Milbank, after he asked for help researching a column piece that was eventually titled: ‘The Ten Plagues of Trump’.

And they knew that Bill Clinton’s tax monkeying was what benefitted Trump directly!

I know very little about this, but from a quick sweep it looks like passive-loss relief was a core component of Bill Clinton’s 1993 tax plan,writes Jeremy Brinster, a former DNC research staffer.

And more and more and more…

In May 2016, DNC Communications Director, Luis Miranda, threatened to “silence” ‘Morning Joe’ host Joe Scarborough by complaining to his bosses over some of Scarborough’s comments on air.

F**king Joe claiming the system is rigged, party against him, we need to complain to their producer,” wrote Miranda in May to DNC’s Press Secretary Mark Paustenbach.

KAKISTOCRACY.
