In an effort to attack competitors, likely the future go-to news source for the Trump presidency, Breitbart News, the LBM have reported that soon-to-be ex-president and likely the worst president in US history, Barry Obama has blamed Hillary Clinton's loss in part to so-called "fake news." During a presser with the betrayer of Germans, Angela Merkel, Obama took time to attack Facebook and social media.
Obama and the crud like him are mad because Hillary Clinton lost the election and with her loss his hoped-for legacy will be wiped out within the first 100 days of Trump's presidency.
Most news produced by LBM is inherently fake. Television is edited for entertainment purposes. Editing distorts facts and thus creates fake news by design. All newspaper content gets edited to fit around advertising.
Worse though, over the years, many LBM have been caught thoroughly faking the news.
LBM IS FAKE NEWS
On Novemeber, 17, 1992, NBC aired "Waiting to Explode" for its Dateline program in which producers, who are executives of NBC, had GM trucks secretly rigged to blow up on impact. Then producers had show hosts claim that GM trucks were factory-defective and could kill Americans.
On September 8, 2004, CBS aired a report for its 60 Minutes program, in which Dan Rather claimed CBS to be in possession of documents that revealed then president George W. Bush had shirked his duties while in service with the Texas Air National. Guard.
Because of a reader of an alternative news site, The Free Republic, that reader realized Rather's documents to be forgeries produced by PC technology rather than an IBM Selectric Typewriter, which would have been the device used during the days that Bush served in the National Guard.
On April 28, 2003, New York Times reporter Jayson Blair forced New York Times executives to throw Jayson under the bus after it had been revealed Jayson Blair engaged in fabrication of stories along with plagiarism. Blair's boss, Jonathan Landman, blamed the affair on affirmative action, saying "I think race was the decisive factor in his promotion. I thought then and I think now that it was the wrong decision."
It should be noted that his dimwitted editors either went along with the fabrications or were too stupid not catch the fabrications. Either way, the highly discredited New York Times revealed itself to be a major source of fake news.
On May 2, 2011, “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams lied claiming that he flew with SEAL Team 6 saying, "I happen to have the great honor of flying into Baghdad with them at the start of the war." In January 2015 during a live broadcast of "Nightly News," Williams lied into the cameras saying "the helicopter we were traveling in was forced down after being hit by an RPG."
LBM were at it again in 2016. In November 2016, ABC execs had field producers correspondent Linsey Davis stand in a field in front of yellow police tape at a non-existent crime scene for a segment broadcast for ABC's "Good Morning America."
The number of faked stories on man-made "global warming" complete with faked imagery produced and disseminated by LBM are so numerous, I would need several lifetimes to hunt down and expose all.
Over in Australia, Australians get their share of fake news. On November 15, 2016, for a story about fake news, Lexi Metherell wrote, "So-called "fake news" ... has been under increasing scrutiny this presidential election, including from comedian John Oliver." Truly, it doesn't get much stupider than that.
TV shows such as The Daily Show formerly with Jon "Stewart" Liebowitz and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver are inherently fake. The tagline for Liebowitz' parody news show was "the most trusted name in fake news." John Oliver show is a fake news show.
The LBM relies upon fake news as a matter of practice. It is not the exception, but the rule of the LBM. Their own even confessed to such back in March 2005 when execs of the New York Times revealed federal agencies of the United States such as the Pentagon and the State Department routinely disseminate through the mainstream media fake and prepackaged news to promote the interests of these agencies. This practice has been ongoing since at least the Bill Clinton Administration. As a matter of routine, local TV news broadcasters broadcast these reports without any acknowledgement of the government’s role in their production.
