ABC’s False Flynn Reporting Proves Our Society Needs Ways To Punish The Fake News Media

  • Nothing to see here, folks, move along.  Nothing to see here. – ABC’s Brian Ross proved once again yesterday that he really should be working at CNN.  Ross’s breathless morning report that Mike Flynn was ready to testify that then-candidate Donald Trump had instructed him to collude with the Russians to try to impact the election threw the entirety of the fake news media and social media into a tizzy, with liberals at every media outlet excitedly predicting that this was the “beginning of the end” for President Trump.
  • There was just one problem, though:  the story was, as Ross’s stories so often turn out to be, completely false.  But ABC let it hang out there all day long, negatively impacting the 401K accounts of millions of Americans by tanking the stock market, before finally forcing Ross to correct his fake story on the network’s nightly newscast.
  • The report was fake, but inaccurate. – On that broadcast, Ross told fake news reader David Muir that, well, gosh, actually, ummmm….welllll, it turns out that what his “source” had really told him was that, er, candidate Trump had simply instructed Flynn to start coming up with suggested approaches to a number of issues facing the U.S. and Russia, and then, after the election, President-elect Donald Trump told him to do his damn job and start making contacts with Russia, along with many other countries, which is what every other president-elect in modern U.S. history has done.
  • ABC characterized Ross’s followup report as a “clarification”, but that’s not what it was at all.  It was in fact an admission that the original report was simply false, and that Flynn’s plea deal is extremely unlikely to have any significant real impact on President Trump or his administration at all.  Put simply, there is no story here, and never really was.
  • Here’s what really happened yesterday:  Mike Flynn agreed to plead guilty to making false statement to the FBI, a process crime that has literally nothing to do with what Robert Mueller’s special counsel office is supposed to be investigating.  In exchange for that plea deal, Flynn agreed to give testimony in cases against other targets of this sham investigation, most likely Paul Manafort or Jared Kushner.
  • In his statement before the court, Flynn made it very clear that what he won’t be doing is offering any testimony that might be characterized as an admission that he or anyone else in the Trump operation engaged in collusion with anyone from Russia to influence the election.  In other words, there is absolutely nothing new here at all.  Not one damn thing took place yesterday that we did not already know was going to happen, and yet our entire society was disrupted for half a day because ABC let Brian Ross, a reporter already well-known for filing fake reports, file a completely fake report.
  • We as a country have a desperate need to find ways to penalize these giant fake media operations when they engage in such heinous false reporting as ABC did yesterday.  Episodes like this have a major disruption on our entire society, costing our economy and our citizens billions of dollars in the process.
  • Worse than that, the fake media monolith is literally brainwashing a vast segment of our society that has no ability to filter the fakeness or think rationally.  These people live in a fantasy world in which the Russians, not Donald Trump, defeated Hillary Clinton, where it’s more important to be politically correct than it is to protect the lives of U.S. citizens, where socialism – which has failed all over the world for a century and resulted in the deaths of hundreds of millions of people – is the peachy idea for America’s future.
  • The fake media is destroying this country, dividing the population irreparably with a constant stream of false reports like Ross’s, driving our nation inexorably towards a second civil war, all in support of their Democrat Party benefactors.  If we can’t find a way to penalize their intentional brainwashing of the public within the bounds of the First Amendment, then the First Amendment will end up destroying the country.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

CBS News Is Infested With Ghouls

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • And That’s The Way It Is…:  Shortly after last night’s bombing of the Ariana Grande venue in Manchester, England, CBS reporter David Leavitt, who is such a “professional” fake journalist that he has often bragged about how he is a proud part of the “resistance” against President Donald Trump, sent out the following Tweet:  “Multiple Confirmed Fatalities at Manchester Arena.  The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too.”  If you watch CBS to get your news, you are getting your news from a bunch of ghouls.
  • Oh, Noes!  Who cut off Maxine’s Mike????:  California’s African American Caucus is looking for answers right now about why the power to the mike was cut off right in the middle of an anti-Trump diatribe being delivered to their group by the supreme nitwit of today’s U.S. congress (which is saying an awful lot), Maxine Waters.  But no worries – Maxine could never be shut up just because the mike went out, as she told the crowd that “they try to shut me up all the time.”  No word on who “they” is, and why “they” are so damned ineffective at their job.
  • Of course, once you’ve sold your soul to the Clintons, “crazy” becomes a relative term.:  Well known spirit cooker and former campaign manager for The Most Corrupt Woman in America, John Podesta, gave an interview to a fake journalist at Politico in which he called President Donald Trump “absolutely crazy.”  He then went home to sacrifice his weekly goat.
  • Wait.  Someone needed Elton John to tell them this?:  In an interview with Variety, pop legend Sir Elton John told a fake journalist that the MTV era “produced many untalented musicians.”  In other news, water is wet.
  • Now that a special counsel is investigating, it’s the only reasonable action to take.:  Fake journalist heads all over the fake news media exploded on Monday when Mike Flynn’s lawyer notified the Senate Intelligence Committee that Gen. Flynn will not testify before that committee, exercising his fifth amendment rights.   It’s fair to remember that, when IRS scumbag Lois Lerner exercised her fifth amendment rights in live testimony, the very same fake journalists who condemn Gen. Flynn basically ignored the Lerner story.  Radio silence.  If fake journalists working for all these fake news outlets want us to stop referring to them as fake, the rank double standard by which they conduct themselves must end.  No one should hold their breath waiting for that to happen.
  • Speaking of Mike Flynn…:  Everyone does realize that Gen. Flynn is a registered Democrat, right?  Just thought that was worth repeating at this moment in time.
  • Meanwhile, in the realm of winning…:  President Donald Trump flew in Air Force One from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Tel Aviv, Israel, marking the first time any plane has flown that route.  A truly historic moment in global history, which about 98% of the fake news media in America studiously ignored.   Pathetic.

Just another day in ghoulish fake news America.

That is all.
