Fake News has been around for a long time.  These media lies and deceptions were often used, but it took President Trump to name it and expose it.


The term “fake news” was popularized by President Donald Trump during his run for the presidency.  “It was at Donald Trump’s first press conference as President-elect when the term "fake news" broke out of media discussions and into the mainstream. "You are fake news!" he pointed at CNN’s Jim Acosta while refusing to listen to his question. Since then, the now President of the USA has been exposing major media outlets several times a week for being ‘FAKE NEWS’ via his Twitter feeds and public pronouncements.

While Donald Trump brought the term “fake news” into the public’s conscience, the liars and dopes in the biased mainstream media had been guilty of falsifying news for decades.  In 2004, CBS’s lying journalist Dan Rather, just weeks before the 2004 presidential election, aired a fake report alleging that President George W. Bush had gotten into the Texas Air National Guard -- thus avoiding the Vietnam War draft - as a result of preferential treatment by the military. The report was based on forged memos said to be from that era. American citizens, not associated with the lying media, pointed out that the memos were typed on a computer, not a typewriter, and CBS eventually acknowledged that it couldn't prove the memos were real.  An internal investigation led to the firing of three CBS execs and the report's producer, Mary Mapes. CBS News anchor Dan Rather, who had defended the memos, stepped down early in 2005, apparently as a result of the scandal.

The media's ongoing production of fake news and their never-ending attacks on Donald Trump had, after President Trump’s first hundred days, destroyed the little credibility the liberal-progressive media had. In one poll, roughly half (51 percent) of Americans said the national political media “is out of touch with everyday Americans,” compared with (only) 28 percent who said it “understand the issues everyday Americans are facing.”

Media bias has been a hot-button issue for several decades and it features prominently in the post-2016 political conversation. Yet, it receives only spotty treatment in existing materials aimed at political communication or introductory American politics courses. Media bias has been around for several decades and has become a topic few liberal educators or pundits want to discuss.
Evaluating Media Bias is a brief, supplemental resource that provides an academically informed but broadly accessible overview of the major concepts and controversies involving media bias. Adam Schiffer explores the contours of the partisan-bias debate before pivoting to real biases: the patterns, constraints, and shortcomings plaguing American political news. Media bias is more relevant than ever in the aftermath of the presidential election, which launched a flurry of media criticism from scholars, commentators, and thoughtful news professionals.
Engaging and informative, this text reviews what we know about media bias, offers timely case studies as illustration, and introduces an original framework for unifying diverse conversations about this topic that is the subject of so much ire in our country. Evaluating Media Bias allows students of American politics, and politically aware citizens alike, the means of detecting and evaluating bias for themselves, and thus join the national conversation about the state of American news media.

LIBERAL MEDIA LIARS BEGAN TO APOLOGIZE IN 2018.
"MSNBC host Joy Reid issued an apology on Friday as pressure mounted on her and the network to address inflammatory blog posts she made beginning in 2005. ... Reid (dropped) her previous (dishonest) claims of being hacked, saying she was "sincerely apologizing again" for her posts and that she was "embarrassed" by some of the things she wrote.

"Among the newly reported (vile) posts on the now-defunct The Reid Report were the photoshopping (of) Sen. John McCain's (R., Ariz.) head on the 2007 Virginia Tech shooter, spreading 9/11 conspiracy theories and saying former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was "onto something" with the suggestion of relocating Israelis to Europe. The posts were written before Reid came to national prominence at MSNBC.

The New York Times was providing fake news, well before President Trump named it fake news.
As the attempts to indict, impeach and bring down President Trump became more evident, The New York Times doubled down on its efforts to attack Trump with Fake News.  The Times issued a fake news story, using anonymous sources, to claim Trump's Secretary of State was AWOL, at a time he was securing the release of three American hostages North Korea had been holding.
Unashamed of their lies, they followed up with a story claiming Kirstjen Nielsen, Trump's homeland security secretary, told ANONYMOUS colleagues she was close to resigning after President Trump berated her on Wednesday in front of the entire cabinet for what he said was her failure to adequately secure the nation’s borders, according to several current and former officials familiar with the episode.
Ms. Nielsen, who is a protégée of John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff, has ACCORDING TO UNNAMED SOURCES drafted a resignation letter but has not submitted it, according to two of the ANONYMOUS people. As the head of the Department of Homeland Security, Ms. Nielsen is in charge of the 20,000 employees who work for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Mr. Trump’s alleged anger toward Ms. Nielsen at the meeting was part of a lengthy "tirade" (wrote the New York Times) in which the president railed at his entire cabinet about what he said was its lack of progress toward sealing the country’s borders against illegal immigrants, according to one person who was present at the meeting.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said Thursday that “the president is committed to fixing our broken immigration system and our porous borders.”

CNN, one of the nation's greatest producers of Fake News, published a story in May 2018, saying 43% of families were living below the ALICE threshold, meaning they were having difficulties meeting week-to-week needs despite the trump economy.
http://money.cnn.com/2018/05/17/news/economy/us-middle-class-basics-study/index.html

The media liars and dopes at CNN forgot to mention while Obama was president, in 2016 49% of Americans lived below the ALICE Threshold.  This is an example of how CNN can produce misleading news, by simply not reporting the whole story.

CNN CAN'T STOP WITH THE FAKE NEWS.
The mainstream media dopes at CNN tell the world "President Donald Trump could be running a child sex trafficking ring."  It's good to know Facebook and Google do not consider CNN to be a producer of FAKE NEWS.  https://www.dailywire.com/news/31142/cnn-analyst-tweets-article-suggesting-trump-could-ryan-saavedra?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_content=062316-news&utm_campaign=benshapiro

AMERICANS GREW TIRED OF MAINSTREAM FAKE NEWS OUTLETS.
In 2018 Fox News, the most balanced and fair media outlet Steamrolled Cable News Competition With A Big Win In May Ratings. In "the May ratings period look very familiar: Fox News won--everything. In ratings data released Wednesday by Nielsen Media Research, FNC extended its run of consecutive months at number one to a staggering 197, while building hitting another impressive milestone: Fox News Channel has now beaten every other network in basic cable for 23 months straight, based on total day ratings, with an average total day audience in May of 1.4 million viewers. In prime time, Fox News destroyed its competition, with an average total audience of 2.381 million viewers, compared to MSNBC's 1.384 million and CNN's 835,000.

GOOGLE PROMISES TO PROTECT US FROM FAKE INFORMATION WHILE PRODUCING THEIR OWN FAKE NEWS.
"Less than a week before the June 2018 California primary, Google listed “Nazism” as the ideology of the California Republican Party.
In the “knowledge panel” that provides easy access to Google's biased information, next to search results, Google was showing “Nazism” as an “ideology” of the party as of Thursday morning. The word “Nazism” was hyperlinked to a secondary page that shows “Nazism” alongside other “ideologies” of California Republicans like “Conservatism,” "Market liberalism,” “Fiscal conservatism,” and “Green conservatism."  Every hour of every day, our digital interactions are being logged and overseen by liberally biased social media people. It's clear Google can not be relied upon as an entity we can trust.

GOOGLE BECAME A TOP FAKE NEWS PROVIDER IN 2018.
Trudy Wade is a Republican state senator from North Carolina and an enthusiastic supporter of President Trump.But if you search “Trudy Wade” on Google, the search giant displays an old photo in the “knowledge panel” of its search results with “BIGOT” superimposed in big red letters.  It's just the latest example of Google's biased liberals not vetting the information that gets pulled into its “knowledge panels,” which are meant to give users quick information without them having to click through search results (often on other, non-Google websites).
