Leftist Wants to Tell Us What Fake News Is?

The people who gave us Brian “Fake News” Williams claim to be the purveyors of reality news?

The people who gave wanted Hillary “RPG Fire” Clinton want us to believe they know real from fake? If Hillary Clinton had been elected president, you know Brian Williams would have been her press secretary.

Merrimack Assistant Professor Melissa Zimdars authored what she deems the fake news list. Zimdars describes herself as an “activist” and “feminist.” She associates with radical Leftist movements, including racist Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street.

As the saying goes, “Who died and made you King?”

There exists overwhelming evidence of media bias, malfeasance, downright malpractice by almost every Leftist media outlet. Yet no Leftist publications made Zimdars’ list.

According to Zimdars, she gets her news from trusted sources.

“…like The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, as well as National Public Radio.”

As for her trusted sources, The New York Times issued a public apology for their coverage of the election. Their editor promised to rededicate his organization to honest reporting. {Hint for Zimdars: as opposed to dishonest reporting.}

In another case of media mea culpas, a CNN talking head admitted election coverage proved to be one of the biggest media failures in many years. I know, I know, they fired Donna Brazile, so all is well with CNN.

Given the polls showing Hillary Clinton winning the election up until Trump actual won the election, no Liberal media outlet could have avoided Zimdars’ list. Further, it would have been one thing if these media outlets only reported the crooked results of pollsters. However, many Leftist media outlets were co-sponsors of the tainted polls.

Next, did Zimdars even consider the WikiLeaks emails that proved that 65 media outlets colluded with the Hillary Clinton campaign? Then what of the journalist who sent his editorials to be reviewed by Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta?

Yet according to The Daily Caller,

Among the sites listed by Merrimack Assistant Professor Melissa Zimdars are Breitbart, Independent Journal Review (IJR) and The Blaze. Articles from those outlets may require additional scrutiny, but they still produce authentic news reports. Even so, Zimdars includes them alongside objectively fake news websites like abcnews.com.co and MegynKelly.us.

The list circulated widely on social media while Facebook executives discuss whether they should become censors by banning “fake news”.

Almost every Liberal media outlet mocked the Trump candidacy. Huffington Post put an editor’s note on every Trump story used for much of the presidential campaign.

“Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S”

What genned up all this discussion of “fake news?” According to Breitbart, Barack Obama did.

President Barack Obama attacked “fake news” during the election, and irate Hillary Clinton supporters have blamed Facebook for costing her the election by allowing users to share information from “fake news” sites.

As Breitbart News’ Chriss Street reported this week, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has vigorously denied that Facebook cost Clinton the election.

Some fear the attempt to paint a broad range of legitimate websites as “fake news” indicates a desire to censor free speech.

Thank God for Conservative media, e.g. real media and WikiLeaks.

The Alt-Right media made all the difference this time – not FOX, or any other cable network, or any author of fake news sites.
