    Fake news entered the equation once it became clear that there was a growing disparity between observed fact and what was reported as fact.

    Do some here wish to actually address the OP or devolve threads into one line meaningless (without discussion) statements that insinuate something they fail to back up with discussion?

    Who can't simply do the same thing?

    If I say all neo republicans lie.......as opposed to those who regularly make accusations about "liberals", yet rarely, to never, offer examples, evidence and explanations that might present any credibility to what they say, why would my statement be any less true than theirs, based on the "criteria" for credibility, they use (none).

    What do you observe here?



    Are the words from Trump's OWN mouth, factual? How would YOU, "report" Trump's words when they are here, there and everywhere with regard to consistency and contradiction, not to mention the "truth"?

    What needs to be "reported"? All one need do is show Trump, contradicting himself and lying. Does it really have to be explained why he hates it and wants his ignorant and blindly partisan base to think the truth about him is "fake"?


    "Fake News" arrived when Trump realized the media was telling the truth about him and the only way he could think of stopping it was to try to call it "fake news"......Considering Trump has a LONG track record of trying to discredit anyone that exposes him, this falls right in line with that practice. While it might have worked for him to threaten to counter sue those going after him for what he owed them (after he shortchanged them or defrauded them), trying to make the free press out as "fake" follows the pattern of dictators and tyrants who want to be the only source of information so they can pump themselves up and suppress anyone telling the truth about them.

    Is it sad or absurd that Trump constantly derides "political correctness" then demands it when it comes to how he expects others to treat him and becomes a "snowflake" when he feels he doesn't get the "respect" he thinks he's due.....

    Here's Trump caught dead to rights in his BS.......What does he do? Does he come clean and say, "you caught me dead to rights, David" and ask to come on the show at a later date once he has stopped hiring foreign labor and built factories in the U.S. to hire Americans to make his ties and shirts or anything else...... or does he act like a sleazeball and continue to try to BS his way out of it or ignore that he looks like a complete hypocrite and fool and exposed by a talk show host?



    I mean really.........who does Trump and his shills think they are fooling, but stupid people and why do stupid not want to be smarter when it comes to someone exploiting their ignorance to get their vote?

    You can almost bet that when Trump calls a story about him fake, more than likely it's a true story about him and he doesn't like it and tries to get anyone to believe him, that it's fake, because it exposes him for what he is........the VERY reason the founders of this nation wanted the free press and citizens of the nation to be able to speak freely about those in government, without being tossed in jail, for doing so, especially for telling the truth. Who, but corrupt leaders want to control the media so they can pump out rosy "reports" about themselves and not have their corruptions exposed?

    Conspiracy theorists have always been with us. What is different nowadays is their "mainstreaming".

    It's not really advisable to be tolerant of every point of view. Batshit crazy is, after all, batshit crazy.
