A Perfect Example of Fake News











In 2017, Miriam-Webster declared “fake news” one of the terms that Americans were most sick of hearing, and we kinda understand why. No matter how accurately it might explain much of the garbage we see printed about the Trump administration, people have a tendency to get sick of anything we hear thrown around every single day of every single week. Nonetheless, this term – especially as it is applied to the mainstream media – is a valuable one. Because where once the term “biased media” may have sufficed, that no longer describes what we’re seeing from Washington reporters.

But a lot of people also have the wrong idea about what “fake news” entails as it pertains to the mainstream vultures who are trying to destroy the Trump administration (and conservatism by extension). It doesn’t mean – or, at least, it hardly ever means – that organizations like CNN, The New York Times, and the Washington Post are just printing ridiculous works of complete fiction for an audience that’s too gullible to think for themselves. No, these articles and segments are (relatively) fact-checked, sourced, and are, on the whole, “true” in their paragraph-to-paragraph details.

So why is it fake? It’s fake because of the bias. It’s fake because journalists choose what to include and what to omit. It’s fake because every story is written with a pre-determined conclusion, and reporters are only too happy to ignore anything and everything that doesn’t fit that story. It’s fake because these stories include BOMBSHELL revelations without properly explaining them to the reader/viewer.

There was a perfect example published in Politico last week. You may have seen the story reporting that several Washington lawmakers met with a psychiatrist in December – a psychiatrist who informed them that President Trump was mentally unstable and unfit for office. Here’s a sample from the piece:

Lawmakers concerned about President Donald Trump’s mental state summoned Yale University psychiatry professor Dr. Bandy X. Lee to Capitol Hill last month for two days of briefings about his recent behavior.

In private meetings with more than a dozen members of Congress held on Dec. 5 and 6, Lee briefed lawmakers — all Democrats except for one Republican senator, whom Lee declined to identify. Her professional warning to Capitol Hill: “He’s going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs.”

In an interview, she pointed to Trump “going back to conspiracy theories, denying things he has admitted before, his being drawn to violent videos.” Lee also warned, “We feel that the rush of tweeting is an indication of his falling apart under stress. Trump is going to get worse and will become uncontainable with the pressures of the presidency.”

Okay, so first of all – are we really supposed to take seriously a psychiatrist whose middle name is “X?”

But more importantly, these opening paragraphs were seized on by secondary outlets, and you already know the phrase they zeroed in on: “All Democrats except for one Republican senator.” Oh, my. Oh, dear. It’s happening! The GOP is turning on Trump! Even Republicans are now beginning to realize that Trump has no business being president! It can only be a matter of time now before his Cabinet invokes the 25th Amendment and throws him out of office.

Alas, as the Weekly Standard (not exactly Trump-friendly terrain) reported this weekend, we have the perfect encapsulation of fake news in this article.

“With the exception of 12 Senate offices which we didn’t hear back from in time, every Republican office flatly denied meeting with Lee,” the Standard wrote. “There’s a reason for that. In an on-the-record phone call with TWS Saturday afternoon, Lee admitted her ‘meeting’ with a Republican senator was not actually scheduled and that it was, in her own words, ‘accidental.’”

Lee told the Weekly Standard that the “meeting” was nothing of the kind. Rather, she essentially bumped into this unnamed Republican senator in the hallway, cornered him, and began sharing her theories about the president’s mental health. And in this interview with TWS, she even admits that the senator in question was not interested or duped by her armchair psychiatry.

None of this mattered to Politico or to the thousands of liberal bloggers who reposted the story with a concerted emphasis on this mysterious Republican senator. Because without that guy in the mix, this is just another pathetic story about the Democrats looking for any avenue they can find to throw President Donald Trump out of the White House. And as it turns out, that’s all it is.


  • Bill O’Neil

    If one equates ‘fake news’ to lies, then most of what comes out of tRump’s mouth is ‘fake news’ as he has a very hard time saying anything without telling a lie. If tRump thinks that is normal then that is proof of his mental defectiveness.

    • Retired

      Very good description of yourself , mental defect !!!

    • Norman

      What lies? PRESIDENT Trump has fulfilled many of his campaign promises to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN in less than a year in office . . . And he still has 3 and quite possibly 7 more years to MAKE AMERICA EVEN GREATER!

      • Bill O’Neil

          • Julia Sanford

            Understand that Maxine Waters doesn’t live in her district either. I wonder if her supporters have ever made any effort to figure out how she became so wealthy on her salary. Also, if anybody is looking for an example of derangement, all they have to do is look at her. I wonder if they think it’s normal to try to start a “impeach 45” chant at a memorial service. Give me a break. If Trump did something like that, we would be hearing about it 10 years from now.

          • Mark Plenn

            a few ham hocks handed out to the right people and she glides into another term in Washington!

        • Norman

          What lies, Bill? You still did NOT answer.

          • gotabgood

            To answer that question more directly, we need to know the time period you are referring to when your leader says “Make America Great AGAIN”?

          • Retired

            So you are also Bill O’Niel ????

          • Julia Sanford

            I think the stock market is pretty “great.” I think your IRA and 401Ks are pretty “great.” I think the reduction of illegal border crossings and freeing up the border guards to do their job is “great.” I think the tax bill where you can keep more of your money is “great.” I think reversing the war on coal and reducing other job-killing regulations on manufacturers, approving the Key Stone pipeline, standing up for law enforcement and our military, rolling back the out-of-control powers of the EPA, standing up for Second amendment rights, existing the U.S. from TPP, placing a freeze on federal employees, eliminating the mandate to buy an overpriced product or be fined and just generally putting power and choice back into the hands of the people is “great.” All this is a “great” start for Making American Great Again. So to answer your question, gotabgood, whatever time it takes as long as we are seeing progress.

          • Mark Clemens

            The Tax thing is not conservative at all. It will add $1 TRILLION to our enormous debt. Trump is pulling a LBJ. Just like LBJ gave the blacks a few crumbs (welfare). Trump is throwing us a few crumbs; at our children’s expense, to make political gains in the present. This is straight out of the Democrats play book:
            EVERYONE LIKES A FREEBIE.

          • Julia Sanford

            Well, I think they are betting that the economy will surge. If so, it will not add to the debt. Looks as though that is starting to happen.
            Obama supporters were calling 2% the “new normal.” Now that it’s growing, they want to give Obama the credit.

          • ELAINE MARZANO

            Norman: see my comment above, “facts don’t matter”. Mr. O’Neil will not give you an answer, so please don’t hold your breath for a reply. If anything, Mr. O’Neil will go to the democratic playbook and use “name calling” to divert the conversation.

          • Mark Clemens

            How about he hasn’t ripped NAFTA up, Imposed his 32% tariffs on imports, Built the wall.
            If you do defend Trump, please don’t pull an Obama, and blame congress………….

          • Julia Sanford

            Interesting isn’t it, C Johns that they don’t seem to remember all the lies by the left . . . and I mean serious lies . . . lies that affect the people and even the security of the country?

          • Mark Plenn

            The means to an end is justified to liberals when they win, they have no class!

          • Mark Clemens

            Bill might be a slow boat, but here are a few:
            Trump said on the campaign trail
            To bring jobs back he was going to rip NAFTA up, and impose a 32% tariff on imported junk. This is an unfulfilled promise (lie)
            This is the main reason I voted for Trump.
            Also where is the WALL?????
            Damn Congress! Trump has $10 billion, can’t he pay for the damn thing, him self???? The founders put their lives and fortunes up for the love of country……….
            I could keep on going, but lets see how you defend these two campaign lies.

          • Julia Sanford

            You can’t call it a lie if he is prevented by congress from doing some of the things he wants to get done, but don’t worry. Trump is a winner and he will keep on keeping on until as many promises as possible are fulfilled. What he has already done is amazing with all the opposition against him.

          • Mark Clemens

            Why not? Obama said he could fix #43’s mess, and did not. I consider that a lie, don’t you?

          • Julia Sanford

            Only if he had tried to “fix” anything. There was a huge difference in the opposition that Trump has had compared to Obama. Additionally, there is obviously a difference between 1 year and 8 years. DUH!

          • Mark Clemens

            Obama did succeed with his agenda. He overwhelmed all government agency’s he did not like, and he put the Treasury further in debt. Obama and Trump have the same obstructionists (McConnall, Ryan).
            Is Trump not smart enough to get around these two people? Or is he only just as dumb as Obama???

          • ELAINE MARZANO

            you people are enough to make people crazy. should not have to defend him. I am going to ask you one question. what in the hell were you doing for the last 8 years? while our so called president was tearing apart our country. I can only say this if you don’t like america then get the heck out. I am tired of putting up with your lefitist attitude. we do not that kind of people in America. and think about what you did to help keep him out of office. nothing I am sure and then you have he nerve to tell us not to blame congress . we cn blameanybody w e htinki s wrong.

          • Mark Clemens

            I voted against Obama TWICE, just like you!!! I was at work for the last 35 years (the last 8 too)
            What extra have you done????
            Hu?
            When I was bashing Obama we were buddies. Now I criticized Trump; you expect me to leave the county? What kind of communist are you??????
            If YOU can’t deal with FREE SPEECH, maybe you are the one who should pack up, and hit the road…………..

          • ELAINE MARZANO

            I have been working on disqus and facebook against Obama. up until 2 and 4 am sometimes 5 am for about 10 years . and we converted a lot of people. I am not a communist . far from it. I have been on FB for 18 years. I did not say yuo should leave , what I said is if you say you are not happy here then . leave.. according to you he did not keep his promise on any thing are you right or wrong?? I don’t know who you are listening to ,but if I we you I would give them up. and you called me a communist. that is crazy. I have never sad one bad thing about ur President. I think this man has saved us from a life we never would have survived . why because that is why he was here. to put all of America out of this world. but he for got one thing this is not our country we are visitors here. we have a landlord. and he decides what happens to his contry. and you know it won’t be a fun fight for the other guys. So oyu can say whatever you want about me. I know I have done my best and I will continue to do so untill America is great again. God Bless all americans

            Geez Mark, He’s only been in office one year! It takes time to “drain the swamp”. And the items you mentioned do take a cooperative Congress (or did that fact blow past you too?)

          • Bill O’Neil

            Saying Obama is a Socialist is the dumbest thing you could say. He is more like Republican lite same as Bill Clinton. You deplorables give yourselves away when you call someone a socialist or communist if they are not a complete foaming at the mouth radical right-wing nut job.

      • Mark Clemens

        Here are 3 examples of broken campaign promises (lies)
        1. Has not ripped up NAFTA and other job killing treaties.
        2. Has not imposed any tariffs to bring jobs back. (Instead he is trying everything #43 done)
        3. Where is the WALL????
        I am a Trump voter, so don’t run to a liberal rant “Comfort Zone” here……

        • Francisco Machado

          Keep in mind had you voted for his opponent you not only wouldn’t have gotten the things you wanted. What was promised by Hillary and what you would have gotten would be much, much worse. What Trump promised was based on the assumption that members of Congress would live up to the campaign promises that got them elected. Admittedly, that was an unrealistic assumption, one clearly not historically supportable. Your assumption that all goals would be achievable and be met within a year is unrealistic. Given what you know now, would you – if permitted to return to 2016, vote for Clinton?

          • Julia Sanford

            Surely you jest! The last thing we would have wanted is for Hillary to fulfill her promises, a continuation of Obama’s Socialistic agenda.

            In all honesty I voted for Trump for two main reasons:
            1. His position on TRADE.
            2. I think its hard to bribe a person w/$10,000,000,000.
            Voting against Hillary is a plus!!!
            Also by the second primary debate Trump should of known the ESTABLISHMENT would buck him every step of the way.
            Imposing Tariffs would save Social Security, Medicare. By bringing jobs back this would make more people wealthy, and more people will be paying into Social Security pool.
            So……why hasn’t he followed through on these promises??
            It’s just like he playing to his rich buddies, like Bush II did. We all saw where that took us. Bankrupt and gave us Obama.
            Two bads at once is NEVER good……….
            If people don’t start remembering the short past for PARTY’S sake;

Anybody who had the nerve to object to any of Obama’s Socialistic policies or dared to point out his defense of anything Muslim, his disdain for our law enforcement and military, bowing to our enemies and snubbing our allies, they would be accused of being racist.

            I have read such utter junk on snopes that I stopped going there. They twist and turn to make the story fit their prejudices. I recall when Trump said Hillary had received tens of millions from various groups (Sauds, Russkis, etc) they rated it as “half-true” because the money had really only gone to the Clinton Foundation. That was the best I ever saw—and it was a distortion. They failed to mention that the Clintons were paying their daughter and family members millions of dollars to run the organization!

            Actually, Chelsea was not paid millions.
            The Foundation’s audited financial statements are published on their web site.
            Under New York State law, all charity organization financial data is public info.
            The Clinton Foundation is four-star rated by groups such as Charity Navigator.
            Unlike pass-through charities, Clinton Foundation employees do the actual work.
            Other charities skim off 10% to 20% and distribute grants to other organizations.
            ..

            I have spoke out repeatedly.

            They all violate the constitution, common sense, the laws of mathematics and science, and if you do your research, a surprising number are suffering or have suffered from alcoholism and bankruptcy and other personal faults. But riddle me this, AK: suppose you are at a bar and ogling the dancers, and someone is picking your pocket while their accomplices are plying you with liquor. Another somewhat vulgar customer kindly points out to you the scam. Do you (A) thank the customer, check your pocketbook, and call the police on them, or (B) believe the protests of the scammers and, at their urgings, shoot the customer and take another drink?

          • AKLady

            Your post is nonsense.

            Either that, AKLady, or you don’t understand it and don’t want to put in the effort. It’s not that hard. Do you want me to tell you what it means? I created it to help you see the big picture. It’s the main reason Trump won the election, so it’s critical information for people prejudiced against him. When you free yourself of prejudice, then you can learn from everyone–even deplorables like Trump and his supporters. But you know, I understand that most people like their prejudices, else they wouldn’t have them.

          • cv

            You do yourself no credit when you make such wild statements. You are also not a very good judge of character. I realize many people have compared Trump unfavorably with Hitler, whereas others have unfavorably compared Hillary with Stalin. Hitler would never allowed his daughter to marry a Jew, nor invited him into his close confidence. Your analogy is flawed. Also, withholding funding from a given agency is not unconstitutional, and not necessarily even wrong.

          • AKLady

            You are terribly confused.
            Your analogy is totally flawed
            Trump has chosen his targets by RELGION and RACE, just as did Hitler.

            Maybe, you should try reading what is written.
            Do you support cutting food or medical care for children or pregnant women?
            Do you support allowing people to die because they cannot afford medical care?

          • cv

            You’ve tried to ask manipulative questions in a vain attempt to avoid reason. Of course I don’t support those things, but you’re pretending there is only one way to fund them, and that is through the US government. Where I live, we fund such charity locally. (Congress determines the laws and the budget, by the way, not the president, so you’re railing at the wrong institution.) In addition, everyone is free to chip in to cover those people. Why don’t you? It actually makes no sense to send the money to DC and then hope they’ll do it. You are also advocating continued, inefficient methods of providing care, and ignoring prevention, which means you are going to cause others to die if you get your way! It’s happening as we communicate in countries around the world where single payer is failing because they relied too much on the government, which is highly constrained, and hence inefficient almost by definition. And finally: Do you really support bankrupting the nation through poorly thought out, random programs that are not properly funded? Check out Canada, 1998. Liberals started acting like conservatives to save the nation (and their medical system etc) from collapse. Really, AK. Use some of that surgeon’s training and try to think with your brain rather than your prejudices.

            CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW RESPECTING AN ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

            So you can copy and paste the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution. I am impressed! No; not really.

            The 1st Amendment begins with “CONGRESS shall make no law . . . ”

            How does “CONGRESS shall make no law . . .” prove that PRESIDENT Trump violates the Constitution on a regular basis?

          • AKLady

            The Clinton Foundation funded the rebuilding of the Haitian harbor and airport.
            Without those repairs, the huge amount of food and material could not have been brought into the country. Ships must dock before they can be unloaded.
            Haiti has a long history of fraud by its ruling class and suppression by ruling governments. The French basically kept the nation in slavery.

          • Ron C

            Negative…the US taxpayer funded that, and army corps of engineers rebuilt it. If anything at all the Clinton foundation may have added a dollar or two…so they could say they did it.
            The Clinton foundation was to enrich the Clinton family so they would no-longer be “dead broke” as Hillary called it.

          • AKLady

            The question you should have been asking is what happened to the Red Cross’ $500 million in Haiti relief donations. It was one of its most successful fundraising efforts. There are no Red Cross built clinics, roads, schools, homes … NPR conducted research revealed waste, mismanagement, highly questionable spending, probable bribery … A ProPublica investigation found similar evidence and facts.

            You obviously have been taken in by all the lies Trump told during the campaign. I suggest you do actual research into the facts. Trump is a pathological liar who suffers from Narcisstic Personality Disorder.

            Do you approve of his “shitholes” remark, as well?

          • Ron C

            Yes…I have to agree with you on the red cross…a poorly run charity is saying it mildly!
            But Dick Durbin is a proven serial liar, I wouldn’t take his word for anything!
            Trump has done more for the African American community than the last three presidents combined…just look at the employment number for that community…stupendous.

            Trump is a legally-documented racist. Suggest you begin your education with United States v. Trump, NY, 1973. There are over 200 more government cases. There are also over 3,000 civil cases.

            AKLady, here we are again, wasting our time! Your obsession with Trump, I find, is truly amazing. What is more amazing is that you seem to be unable to grasp that all politicians “lie”. Often these are just offhand comments that they didn’t check carefully, so they are really just expressing their general policy position rather than outright lying. And sometimes they are using hyperbole to make a point, or they are simply mistaken, or being taken out of context. Very often, their political opponents are making it seem they are lying for political advantage. So ultimately, the rational thing to do is to focus on their policies. Do the policies make sense, or is it better to run the unfunded Federal entitlements and liabilities up past 150 trillion dollars? It’s not about lying. It’s about money.

          Man, Allan, I cannot believe you are not waiting for the Washington Post movie to come out. ;-p Talk about gullible idiots. Think of what people will say after seeing “the truth.” Oh, wait, “the truth” in the New York Times.

          • AKLady

            The “truth” is what ever people on this site want to believe.
            The source has no bearing, whatsoever.

          • Jack Hills

            The Source is important. TV, radio and newspapers are supposed to report the facts. We base our beliefs on the facts. But when the facts become obscured by innuendo, slanted viewpoints, personnel opinions and downright lies, our beliefs become likewise skewed. The greatest example of this is: Why are the major city black communities run by Democrats, who run on campaigns of bettering their inner cities and the inner cities are no better off, and in some cases worse, today than they were 50 years ago? Maxine Waters is a good example of this. Representing the inner city, yet living in a mansion out of her district. She doesn’t give a damn about the average black person. As long as she can con the people into thinking she represents them and make money off their downtrodden backs, she will. Just like Russian collusion, say it enough times and some people are going to believe it true. Yet there really hasn’t been one iota of proof brought forward. That’s why we need to wait and see what Mueller comes up with. Yet…the media has convicted those it believes did it without any proof. How would you like a police officer pull you over and say AK I smell marijuana in your car and alcohol on your breath? Slap on the cuffs and take you to jail. Don’t you want a breathalyzer test and search of your car to be done first? Lies, supposition and innuendo versus the truth! Do people think you are an alcoholic and druggie based on the officer’s opinion? Or do you want the truth based on the search and test?

          • AKLady

            Truth? Three people have been charged, two have entered guilty pleas.

Same reason people vote for obamas, clintons, etc…not because they help a d@%* thing..

          • AKLady

            If Waters was not “working for the people,” why would the voters keep electing her?
            ..
            We the People do not elect the President, as is documented by the tRump in thw Whitehouse.
            The last time the U.S. stayed within the budget, Clinton was President. Factually, the national debt actually went down under Clinton. His administration also oversaw significant economic gains.
            .
            When Obama took office, we had been dropping 1 million jobs a month — for over a year. He oversaw the Congressional mandated end of the Iraq War. He reduced America’s involvement in Afghanistan. He kept war from breaking out with Iran.
            Under Bush, two wars were approved and taxes for the rich were reduced. Those wars cost $1 million per day/each. Those wars will add to the national debt for at least another 50-60 years.

          • Nita1931

            Hey AK, Years ago Scopes printed this following list ass TRUE, now they say MIXTURE.
            “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”
            President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998.
            “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”
            President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998.

            “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.”
            Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998.

            “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.”
            Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

            “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
            Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John
            Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998.

            “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”
            Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.

            “Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.”

            Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999.

            “There is no doubt that . Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.”
            Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others,
            Dec, 5, 2001.

            “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them.”
            Sen. Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept. 19, 2002.

            “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”
            Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

            “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.”
            Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

            “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seing and developing weapons of mass destruction.”
            Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002.

            “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”
            Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002.

            “I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”
            Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002.

            “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years . We also should remember we have alway s underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.”
            Sen. Jay Rockerfeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002,

            “He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do.”
            Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002.

            “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program.
            He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”
            Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

            “We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass
            destruction. “[W]ithout question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation. And now he has continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real …
            Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003.

            AK when are you Trump haters gonna get your facts straight! None of the four people charged have been accused of collusion. Zip, zilch, nada. Flynn: “lying to the FBI” is not collusion. Manafort and Gates: conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money,
            unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading US
            Foreign Agents Registration Act statements, false statements, and seven
            counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts. Again not collusion. To quote Mueller: “The charges against Manafort and Gates are unrelated to the Trump campaign.” George Papadopoulos: “making a false statement to the FBI” Again, not collusion. So that is “4” people charged, not three and zero collusion. You are under the delusion that collusion has been found. While Mueller may yet find it: NO ONE HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH IT!!!!!

            I am a firm believer in the Constitution,and the Bill of Rights, including freedom of the press. I know that was included so the People could have the truth.

            HOWEVER, (since there has been caveats placed on just about every one of the amendments in the Bill of Rights) there needs to be regulations placed on that “freedom”. If the terms; “sources say” (without naming the source), “anonymous”, “un-named”, etc., the law should state that the words “FICTION”or “OPINION” in bold font at least 20% larger than all other words in the entire text, including the headline, precede and follow the entire article. In the case of video, those words must be displayed on screen, prominently, during the entire segment.

            This would not hamper the freedom of the press, rather it would bring the true meaning of that portion of the First Amendment back in line with the framers design.

          • Jack Hills

            Back when I was a newspaper reporter in the 70’s we could not use terms like sources (anonymous or un-named). My editor’s rule was, “If you can’t name the source, you can’t use the info or quote.” When people would approach me “off the record”, I would simply say, “When you’re ready to be on the record call or contact me.” You are spot on Wiz.

          Liars believe lies. The liars intent on spreading the lies understand that. Did you ever lie and get away with it? Then you are prone to believe lies whether you want to or not. Some people base their entire lives on lies. You don’t HAVE to believe or disbelieve anything you hear or read. You are never reminded that you have that choice if you have never told a lie. Little children hear lots of things all day long from the time they are born but they have a ‘natural filter’ not believe or disbelieve anything they hear. The more a person lies and develops their immorality in other ways the more lies look like great thruth and virtue to them. These are easily suggestible weak minded vitrue signalling perverts that are attracted to lies and antihuman ideolgies like flies to dung.

A third possibility exist and that is the Enquire staff are the first ones to realize the responsibility of a free press again where the rest of the leftward fallen media still doesn’t understand!

        It doesn’t need to be that complicated. our own higher educational system has fallen over to the left and taught that way for decades now so how hard is it to conceive management in most of these organizations has been hiring like minded people for near as long!

      Yeah: much better news coming from you rue-skis…

    • Boy did I miss my calling on this one.
      What the MEDIA is using is a bias called Bias by Omission.
      In other words they ignore all good things about Trump, which leaves only the bad things about Trump.
      What makes it worse is that we just endured the last 8 years of the MEDIA ignoring all bad things about Hillary.

      We are fighting the MEDIA’s hypocritical use of bias by omission at http://www.madashellboycott.com

      Contrary to popular belief, there is something us common folk can do about it….

      Please join the fight.

          That is the dumbest comment ever. There are many interpretations of “great” – your version seems rather Hitler-esque. Trump ain’t working – hasn’t fulfilled one pre-election promise. No wall, no ban, no repeal and no mass deportations. Amusingly you don’t even need Democrats to side with you Republicans own the House you ignorant buffoon. Obviously a good many of them think Trump a moron too.
          Hitler was right and wrong.

  • gotabgood

    Trump’s Tuesday night nuclear taunt managed to cause alarm even within his own party. […]

    “The tendency was anti-alarmism among Republicans,” said Bill Kristol, editor at large of the Weekly Standard and one of Washington’s leading conservative voices.

    That made Trump’s sudden fit of saber-rattling “more jolting,” according to Kristol—and it reopened the national conversation about the president’s mental stability. “I was focused on Iran, and talking to people in the administration about serious policy,” Kristol added, “and then to see in the middle of what might be a serious policymaking process, Trump’s just flipping out.” […]

    Richard Painter, who served as chief White House ethics lawyer under President George W. Bush, tweeted on Tuesday of the president’s comments about North Korea, “This Tweet alone is grounds for removal from office under the 25th Amendment. This man should not have nukes.”

    • mac12sam12

    It is not just a few news outlets that do this, look at your smaller papers and you will see the majority run copy from the likes of The AP and USA today, they simply regurgitate the same old crap. If you look, ACTUALLY LOOK, at the so called news articles, it is very obvious as to how it is done, two articles in the last week come to mind, BOLD HEADLINES, TRUMP ADMINISTRATION LAW AFFECTS 10s OF THOUSANDS OF IMMIGRANTS, they lead you astray at the headline, it FACTUALLY should say “ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS” but they intentionally leave that part out. Another one in the news, MILLIONS TO LOSE HEALTH INSURANCE BECAUSE OF GOP, when in fact it should FACTUALLY read, millions will HAVE a choice and WILL NOT be penalized for the choice as to whether to BUY insurance of THEIR OWN choice, or not at all, they can spend the obamacare penalty how they best see fit. Read very carefully and think about what you read, this happens hundreds of times a day.

    • Joseph Carrilho

      Correct about the same old crap.

    • Julia Sanford

      True John. That’s a perfect example. Another is spreading the idea that taxes should be reduced for the poor. How about mentioning that you can’t reduce taxes for people who don’t pay them.

  • William Doty

    Liars believe lies. The liars intent on spreading the lies understand that. Did you ever lie and get away with it? Then you are prone to believe lies whether you want to or not. . You don’t HAVE to believe or disbelieve anything you hear or read. You are never reminded that you have that choice if you have never told a lie. Little children hear lots of things all day long from the time they are born but they have a ‘natural filter’ not believe or disbelieve anything they hear. The more a person lies and develops their immorality in other ways the more lies look like great thruth and virtue to them. These are easily suggestible weak minded vitrue signalling perverts that are attracted to lies and antihuman ideolgies like flies to dung.

    It’s telling that the author bases his claim of “fake news” on whether or not there was a republican involved in the meeting and the author’s middle name and not Yale University psychiatry professor Dr. Bandy X. Lee’s speculation that lying bent Don Con is falling apart under stress and is going to get worse and will become uncontainable with the pressures of the presidency.
    Seems to me the “President’s” mental stability ought to be more important than whether or not there was a republican present at a meeting.

    As a highly trained Buddhist and mathematica physicist, here’s what I see in the Trump vs. the World scenario: Trump is eccentric, but he truly has the interests of all Americans in mind and heart. It is also clear that his accusers have a lot of problems. Let’s start with my formerly fellow democrats: they are into marijuana and abortion. They have prejudice against Christianity, mainly because they like to do what feels good rather than what is right. Their prejudices against Trump are all due to the light he cast on the different contradictory and poorly conceived policies in Congress. It is also very clear that the Russian collusion investigation was premeditated by the DNC and FBI, and its purpose is threefold: (1) Impeach Trump; (2) Delay the Trump agenda; (3) Keep attention off DC, DNC, and Dem malfeasance, e.g. Seth Rich, Clinton Foundation, Uranium sale. Uncorroborated quote from Hillary backstage after a bad experience during a debate: “If that b___rd wins, we’re all going to jail!” Do tell!

    A few years ago I ran into a friend, a retired chief editor of a major local paper. He always tried to get his people to get accurate information and report it in an unbiased way.
    I asked him why so many just could not do that?
    His answer was that those journalists are so damn stupid they can’t do anything else.

    He then said one of the major problems is that there is no real education nor any licensing requirements for journalists because supposedly the SCOTUS ruled the first amendment protected them from that. There is a very loose ethics panel for journalists but the protect their own very very well. In other words, there is no way to hold them accountable for what they say!

    He continued that until there are ways to truly hold them accountable, journalism will be the destroyer of this country.

  • Eric Pearson

    While it’s very nit picky, I can see your point. That, however, does not diminish the views of many psychiatric health care professionals who are only pointing out what they see. Even with your explanation of the event, if it’s honest, the story is not about the reporting. The story is the obvious (even to the untrained eye) failing mental health of the occupant of the National Cheeseburger Bedroom.
    One more point. Your own bias and lack of integrity are exposed by your comment about the psychiatrist’s name. By your own standards, that qualifies your story as nothing more than fake news.

Get it through your pathetically closed off single minds, Donald Trump won the presidency and he is getting the job done. From what I have learned the only things he really needs is more sleep and the trashy unprofessional mainstream media off his back. I personally don’t mind hearing the words “Fake News”, what I mind hearing is the “Fake News” story itself! It shows that literally nobody affiliated with leftist style thinking can get do their jobs no matter what the job is, its all they know how to do is lie, cheat and steal. Don’t you lefties get it yet your irrelevant to solving any issues in America simply because you can’t report anything properly, then you can’t know whats really happening, then you can’t solve any issues. You also won’t win over any peoples votes because no one trusts anything that anyone says on the left side of politics.

Lie to make Trump look bad and then boom the truth happens and its all about doing good things for the people. You know like a president and party is suppose to do. You do know he is actually accomplishing his peoples agenda right? Not lying about it then doing an about face to learn the truth of the plan is an actual disaster like the past decade or so. Yeah funny how that works out you troll. Go back and hide under your bridge with Osama and Killary. Oh excuse me my bad I mean Obama and Hillary. Both are barely seen or even talked about after all their lies and scandals that actually damaged America severely. All fake Democrat Liberals. I have never seen a Liberal Democrat actually oppress people before. That is actually kinda funny given the fact that Liberals actually stand up for the oppressed instead of taking their voice away. Lastly zero evidence all around from this loser to support the fake claim, just more meaningless words from a psychologically unwound leftist lunatic.

        • Brian W.

          P.S. – I said Osama because Obama was running cover for Hezbollah thwarting the DEA from taking down a huge drug ring in America that was supporting terrorism. I said Killary because Hillary stood idly by while Americans were dying in Benghazi and lied repeatedly about why it all happened and in the faces of the families of victims. BOTH PRETTY MUCH UNFORGIVABLE AND OFFENSIVE TO ALL AMERICANS. You TROLL must truly be Anti-American.

  • Robert Dahl

    In the 1933 financial depression, Washington, D.C. had five newspapers (Washington Post, Washington Star, Washington Daily News, and Washington Herald-Tribune). In 1933 the Washington Post already was “for-sale”, in public bankruptcy. The Post was finally bought by Federal Reserve Board member, Eugene Myers, at a public auction on its front steps—cheaply purchased ($12 million); financial gain to be secondary to its use as a press propaganda instrument for liberal political causes, often reflecting his Jewish heritage as well. Thus, the object of Meyer’s purchase was for a Leftist press propaganda voice in Washington, tuned to Capital Hill—the U.S. Congress and Supreme Court—a newspaper lobbyist, still active today with the same aggressive program designed to transform the Nation to a mere “homeland”.

        I did not say all Jews were Leftist. Recall, Jesus Christ was humanly born into a Mosaic society—born free and far above the “political-correctness” of being labeled a “Leftist”. Neither Left-or-Right, Jesus came to save all faithful of the human race. But in the modern stance, most Jews who reject the divinity of Jesus can be seen as Talmudic (cabbalistic devotees), and thus proud to be viewed as political “Leftists”—and basically by nature, covertly anti-Christian. This can be affirmed in any review of 2,000 years of historical facts. My Jewish hero was the late Robert Novak, a Catholic.

  • Richard Start

    The rule of our Country derives from We The People including every race and if our news media fails to fully report events or taints them excessively they rob us of a chance to decide for ourselves what it is we want
    The editors and journalist laughed off bias in the news comments saying that was alright because they had a right to express their opinions but they couldn’t laugh off being called “fakes”! And to be honest the bias is so bad that is what we are looking at! Face facts some organizations have edited recorded tracks of events to change what happened! And then their is the non reporting of news with the justification that “NO ONE will be interested in that subject material!” I saw this come to play when the lRS was shutting down 401 and 501 c’s over 3 election cycles and little was said about it! I caught the Senate hearings on that one, what an eye opener!!! That CBS,NBC, MSNBC or others like them were not saying any thing worth while, it blew my mind. IRS letter head giving the names and phone numbers of opposing political groups to one side in an issue allowing for harassing phone calls! How is that not news? You would think one out of the three one would say something but nothing.
    If We The People are suppose to decide how our country is run how can we make good decisions with those three informing us? Or not informing us is the better way to put it!
    Yes a Free Press is essential to a Free Country But it is Also essential that that Free Press operate like one and not a propaganda machine for one political Party delivering fake news! That is why Trump needs top stay on top of them until they realize their responsibility! It is to We The People and not one political Party or their personal political ideals!

We had just, NO Hilary had just worked out the Uranium 1 deal! Base material for nuclear weapons! Now we don’t communicate with a dominate country moving into the OPEC region which will effect NATO and UN relations as well as political strength on that half of the world while our clout dwindles….

    What I love the most about the meeting today with Trump, all those people saying he is mental, were there, in front of the cameras, showing him respect and him allowing them to speak their minds and he answered quietly and with all common sense, they will realize they were just made total fools of. There is nothing but FAKE news everywhere. We are not a Third World Shithole, yet our news is taking it’s cues from the Ult Left, they are backing one party. They even tried to take over the net, giving the liberal backing big companies the go ahead to bully and be the big boys on the block, now that is over they still go on but Google and Twitter both caught.

    The Demon Rats are Resisting and Obstructing everything to keep Trump from winning more battles but he just walks right over them and they can’t stop his successes. They are losing and when they see they can’t spin this meeting Trump had today, and their own news puppets were there filming it, they will have another hissy fit. Trump let them speak, tell all Americans what they wanted for America and none of it is good. They are all about illegals and their voting base.

They are also smug, because they are too dumb to know they are dumber than most of their audience. Finally, they are angry, because a good plumber makes 80,000 a year and most reporters make about 30,000. Since they think they are smarter than workers, they “know” they deserve more.

The snowflakes may be ignorant, but millions of everyday Americans are not. Look in the mirror and ask yourself, why do so many of us despise you? You’re colossal liars and we can’t stand watching you on the news because nobody likes to be constantly lied too. So either tell the truth or find another occupation!

      ” … the facts Ma’am, just the facts’. Wait… who said that ??

    Fake news continues to braid their own rope to hang themselves! What a bunch of boobs!

  • Mr. Manfredgensenden

    In this day of ever-increasing connectivity of information, it seems that the easier it is to confirm a story or tale, the less anyone WANTS to. The mere suggestion of wrongdoing is enough to ruin someone’s life. Shameful!

  • Jack Hills

    I want everyone to know that I am being sexually harassed by members of congress! Just the mere sight of Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Lizzie Warren (Lizzie because it sounds more Indian) and others has caused me to become impotent! And don’t get me started on what Rosie O’Donnell, Chelsea Handler and those of their ilk are doing to me. My body and mind are being ravaged.

    First we have Fo News the number one purveyor of propaganda a slanted news
    then we get alternative facts
    then all real news outlets are termed fake news
    I just have to whether there will be something that follows this or whether people will see the truth in these manipulations?

    If the democrats/liberals invokes the 25th Amendment you can bet your ass CIVIL WAR will come too America and these bastards will hand.

  • Veteran

    THIS (fake news) is the reason we (Americans) NEED President Trump to continue to Tweet! With the MSM making it up as they go, acting as an extension of the Dems, WE need to hear from the source (Trump) in order to get the truth! We already knew that when Dems speak the truth is more closely aligned with the OPPOSITE of what they say (i.e. “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” BO knew that was a lie when he said it).
    If young voters do not start questioning the Dems and making them prove their outrageous lies, this country is doomed.

  • Deplorable Lanie

    It has gotten to the point where I can’t believe anything that is written or reported by a “liberal” source. Because too many times I have read something, believed it, and then found out they left put half the story!!! I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to know I can’t trust anything until I verify by msny different sources! I don’t even watch CNN or MSNBC or CBS or ABC news anymore. And can only trust a few on FOX NEWS!

    Psychiatrists are the ones that are unstable IMO, especially those from Universities. I trust none of them, especially one as biased as this one.

    Our family has not watched any of the “Fake News” outlets for many years, especially since the last stolen election by the Democrats because even then they were lying to us by promoting any and all things Obama related as being also ‘Christ like’. He never got anywhere near to fitting that description but he did dance on the mat of all things that could harm, create hate and anger and destroy our faith in America and Religion. Obama and the “Fakers” were setting us up for their plans of becoming a government under rule by One Tyrant, King Obama. Thank God Donald J. Trump stepped forward and won the election, leaving Hillary Clinton destroyed and unable to act as the device Obama planned to use as his means for passage into the Kingdom. This may sound nuts, but I truly believe that was the plan because no one in their right mind would ever have viewed Hillary Clinton as a viable candidate, not even the Dems. A useful Tool, oh yeah, Hillary fit that bill.

  • Sherry Pennington

    You’re mostly right…..but some of the fake news is truly fake. By that I mean it is fabricated, not just showing bias.

  • nick evans

    It seems to me that the ‘media’ is not trying to TAKE DOWN the Trump administration but to further the administrations’ harmful anti-environmental agenda. I have not noticed the ‘media’ disregarding ANY Trump tweet – no matter how trivial or distasteful. On the last day of December Trump did away with ALL REGULATIONS concerning ‘fracking’ – a move that makes it MORE LIKELY that our good water sources are going to be polluted by the toxic ‘produced water’ of the fracking process. The media has been rehashing the ‘new’ book which says what has already been known before in a thousand contexts. How many of you had seen articles or TV coverage of the ‘no more fracking regulations’ or any of the earlier environmental deregulating? The ‘media’ SEEMS to be against Trump – but in reality is helping him push through his anti-environmental agenda.

    “Journalists choose what to include and what to omit” is being blind to their outright LYING, SLANDER and LIBEL. For many decades I have heard them not merely twisting the facts but rather creating LIES which weren’t even close to the facts. The vile corporate media is solely in the business of creating public opinion and the garbage and trash they present is much worse than “fake news” but is in fact LIES. Unfortunately they have control of all of the major TV and radio stations where most Americans receive their perverted “news” and the only way they will even get close to the truth is to seek from sources which aren’t controlled by our enemies in the united nations which controls the corporate media.

    I was in small German village, a friend of mine having trouble with a crossword puzzle became so frustrated he called another of our buddies in Portugal and hit him up for the answer. I forget the question but it was ridiculously simple we laughed for hours. Sounds like I had some rich friends doesn’t it? The truth is all of us were in the service at different bases and the two on the phone were working alert desks that had to talk to each other on a regular basis! It is all in how you tell a story that can make people sound as if they are good, bad, insane or normal as you and I! That really happened when I was a young man and it hit me then how weird that could sound if people didn’t know where we were! Bruch Germany which if you google it is in a gorgeous ditch so wide a small village fits in it, not the base just where I lived at the time!

  • 66boss

    Trump IS the fake news! He’s not the embarrassment though. It’s all the hypocrites
    out there without balls enough to do the right thing and move forward without him.

  • John D

    Fake News is the only news these morons have.

  • Brabado

    When the Truth, and Nothing but The Truth works against the DemoRats, they are forced to “fabricate FAKE NEWS” and publish them by the FAKE NEWS MEDIA SISTERHOOD!

    Whenever CLEAN AND SUPERVISED ELECTIONS are held in the U.S., the DemoRats will not get a single seat in Congress, let alone, the White House… And they know this, AND ARE GROWING REALLY desperate because DEMORATS HAS, “ABSOLUTLY NOTHING” TO OFFER OUR NATION!

    Honestly, hope Oprah has the guts to run for President… She’ll be kick out of our Nation, in a N.Y, Second.

    What other Candidate does the Corrupt DNC has in mind? Whoever it is, Bring it On!!!

    GOD BLESS AMERICA

    Semper fi.

  • Michael Dennewitz

    The ONLY news I’d believe is if they told me I had won the damned lottery, and even then, only if they were jamming money into my pockets at the same time.. 😆😁😂🤣

  • Rex Whitmer

    Lets just re-adjust this a bit. With all the fake news coming out on one theme or another, and being able quickly determine that it is false, isn’t it also a design in it’s self of mental illness??? If your are desperately going from story to story attempting to find what isn’t there, isn’t that a sign of retardation??? I would think so. You know when I was a boy I had a younger brother that had actually been convinced that a bogey man was going to find him and eat him. It took me a couple of weeks to convince him that there was NO BOGY man. This has been going on now for a year and a half with false stories of every variety being shown to be false! Someone has a mental problem! It ain’t the man they’re trying to scare the public with, it’s them!!! Actually if President Trump were a regular citizen and they were spreading these stories, he could likely double his net worth just suing these people for propagating these lies for twice the money HE”S worth!
