Trump’s lambasting of the media has worked. The most recent declaration by CNN proves it, as CNN has pulled the race card.
According to Activist Post,
It appears that CNN has launched a war on those who attempt to call out the mainstream media’s lies by comparing those who use the term ‘fake news’ with those who use derogatory and racial slurs like the ‘n-word’.
I think this may be the Seventh Sign. Or is it the pot calling the kettle black?
CNN Fake News N-Word?
What has been equated to the n-word?
Not supporting ObamaCare
Calling Obama by his middle name
The election of Donald Trump
Not supporting Barack Obama
Leftist have determined that regular speech has “code words.” Thus, The root discussed something Paul Ryan said, and determined it was “code.”
When Paul Ryan talked about a “real culture problem” in “our inner cities in particular” this week, he wasn’t the first American politician to be slammed for using racially coded language to get a point across. Far from it.
They went on to explain how “inner city” was one such code word.
Ryan’s statement, which he later said he regretted, is a perfect example of the way public expressions of racism have evolved, says López. “You can’t publicly say black people don’t like to work, but you can say there’s an inner-city culture in which generations of people don’t value work.” The goal here, he says, isn’t to demonize minorities—far from it—but to demonize a government that helps the middle class (and if the people Americans have historically associated with inner cities have to be used in the process, so be it).
Ironically, the people who invented the term “fake news,” now want to make it a new “code word.”
And now we get that using the term “fake news” is the equivalent of using the n-word against the media.
The Activist’ article continues,
Late last year, as the presidential election was coming to an end, the Washington Post launched a full on attack against anyone who dared question the establishment narrative — the term ‘fake news’ was born.
For weeks, the Post and other outlets waged war on supposed ‘Fake News’ outlets even going so far as to put out an arbitrary list of dozens of sites they deemed ‘fake’ — including the Free Thought Project.
After their attempt to weaponize news blew up in their face in the form of a myriad of cease and desists, and the resultant shit show spawning from mainstream media referring to each other as ‘fake news’, the Washington Post then attempted to take the high ground and “retire the tainted term ‘fake news.’”
