The Fake News Media Doesn’t Even Put Up A Pretense Anymore

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

All fake news, all the time. – If you still do not believe that our national media establishment is 100% in the pocket of the Democrat Party and coordinates messaging with that political party on a daily basis, consider the following story.

We are now in Day 9 of a partial “government shutdown” that exists over the issue of illegal immigration. Early this week, in the midst of this “government shutdown,” a California law enforcement officer was murdered by an illegal alien who he was attempting to arrest for what would have been the illegal’s THIRD DUI crime. Yes, that’s right: thanks to California’s sanctuary laws, this illegal had already been arrested for and convicted of two DUIs, has known gang affiliation, and despite all of that had been allowed to just get out of jail and roam free on the state’s highways to put more lives in danger.

Anyway, that murder took place four days ago now, and in all that time, not one Democrat officeholder has been asked by one intrepid “journalist” to comment on the situation.  Think about that: California has 53 members of the house and 2 U.S. senators, and not one of them has had to field a single question about how they can continue to support open borders and sanctuary laws when their state’s police officers and citizens are being murdered by illegal aliens.

The reason why is obvious: The media and the Democrats are coordinating on a narrative, and that narrative dictates that only Republicans must field difficult questions about illegal immigration. Any “journalist” who violates the narrative runs the risk of being dis-invited from all the best dinner parties. This is not complicated, folks.

Speaking of fake news… – two other fake news stories dominated the fake media this week, and boy, were they doozies.

First, you had the “bone spurs” story. This story, which we’ve heard many, many times before, made a comeback this week, with “new” information.  That “new” information came in the form of the two daughters of the doctor who treated Donald Trump for bone spurs in 1968 claiming that her father – who is conveniently dead – told them that he faked the diagnosis on orders from Trump’s father Fred Trump, so that Donald Trump could avoid the military draft in effect at the time.

1968 is half a century ago, for those who are chronologically challenged.

So, first of all, who cares? Other than a bunch of pedantic Millenial soy boys and valley girls staffing the fake reporter desks at CNN and MSNBC, that is.

Second of all, why should we believe these two women?  In all seriousness – there is literally no reason at all to believe they are anything other than liberal attention-seekers. They bring with them zero supporting evidence – no documentation, no statements from their father or any other doctor. No media outlet would have dreamed of going forward with this story were it leveled at a Democrat president, yet every media outlet in America has parroted the claim this week.

Third of all, who cares? Yes, that deserves repeating.

The next big fake story of the week came from the pathetic McClatchy News Service, which updated its claim from earlier this year that ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen had visited Prague during the 2016 campaign to hold secret meetings with Russian agents. This story has been debunked more times than the one about the moon landings being faked, but that didn’t stop McClatchy running with an update claiming that …

“A mobile phone traced to President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen briefly sent signals ricocheting off cell towers in the Prague area in late summer 2016, at the height of the presidential campaign, leaving an electronic record to support claims that Cohen met secretly there with Russian officials, four people with knowledge of the matter say.”

Those “four people with knowledge of the matter”? They are not merely anonymous sources – they are anonymous sources being quoted by other anonymous sources, as Brit Hume so ably pointed out:

The reason why McClatchy’s story remains “exclusive” is that it is so obviously faked that none of the other fake media outlets want to touch it.

This is the sort of nonsense your President has to put up with on a daily basis.  It is intentional, it is relentless and it is unending.

Some Twitter funnies to close out this morning’s Campaign Update:

Why yes, yes it is:

You think I’m kidding?  Just watch…

I’m afraid it isn’t a parody at all…

This also is not a parody.  A “Women’s March” event in California has been cancelled because it is “too white.”

Meanwhile, in Paris, the Yellow Vest protesters have identified the real enemy of the people:

That is all.

    It’s so easy to just make up anti-Trump stories, or for reporters to get fed fake stories by people who want anonymity that jounolists are happy to provide. Assuming journalists want to report truth, they’d out their lying anonymous sources who’ve been proven to be lying. McClatchy hasn’t revealed their sources, which tells you they just want more anti-Trump stories to publish and they don’t care about truth.

    After all, isn’t it news when some government official or political insider lies to the press? Oh wait, that only applies if it’s a conservative lying apparently. Consider Obama’s “You can keep your plan, etc.” lie compared to say Trump’s statement about his inauguration crowd size. One lie affect million of people personally and financially while the other is at most exaggeration and insignificant, and perhaps just a mistaken opinion from Trump’s point of view, or IMHO Trump tooting his own horn which matters not.

      A real Journalist would make a deal with an unnamed source: “If your information proves to be false, your name goes public.” Fake sources would dry up overnight, while the real news would come to the surface and we’d all be a lot better off.

      That would put an end to the avalanche of fake news in a big hurry; trouble is, the news media of this age represents the worst confirmation bias in press history: they don’t report news anymore, and they search far and wide for people who will tell them what they want to print; they print only what they want to believe.

      Confirmation bias.
