    Par for the course, just like his yet again predictable deflecting response. Of course, when he calls things "fake news" that is all the response that is needed. THe right wing double standard.

    You know how right wingers work, them stating something is fact is all they need. No evidence, no logic, no reasoning required. Everybody who disagrees needs to prove their case. Of course, anything used as evidence they label as "fake news" without any explanation of what is false. Of course, when they cite to clearly bullshit fake news and biased websites and blogs, people need to point out specifically.

    Not sure why any of us bother, its like the saying goes "It's hard to win an argument with a smart person, it is impossible to win an argument against a stupid person" IN this case, stupid being people intentionally being dishonest and incapable of actually defending their positions

    And you will never win an argument with anyone. Because you aren't capable of having a conversation like a non-troll. All you do is post the same generalized complaints. "Deflection. Derp! Deflection!"
    The thread is about fake news, you fucking troll. Which you have yet to address because you are a damn troll.
    The Dr Sampson Troll method of debate.
    • Post the same generalized complaint in every thread without addressing the topic.
    • Whine that other people aren't addressing the topic.

    How the fuck do you not know what fake news is? When media run a story about a 90 year old woman being foreclosed over 27 cents that didn't happen, that is fake news. When media repeatedly runs claims that the health care bill calls rape a preexisting condition when it does no such thing, that is fake news. When media breathlessly reports that Republicans are having a beer party to celebrate passage of the AHCA even though that wasn't true, that is fake news. Claiming Comey asked for more money for the Russia probe. Another false story.
    None of these were stories planted by Russia. It was sloppy work by a media who doesn't care about accuracy if a story serves their agenda.
    But you're too busy being a troll to understand any of that. Go be a troll somewhere else and leave this conversation to the grown ups.

    Tracing a fake news story, from parody site to FoxNews.com / Boing Boing
    @Babba it appears YOUR NY Times Story is the FAKE NEWS


    CNN also ran the same story with VIDEO.. oops

    So why do you post a fake story, it took me 0.00002 seconds to prove FOX DID NOR CNN FAKED THE STORY

    See Russian jets buzz U.S. Navy ship - CNN Video

    ROLMBO.. The Trump Haters have no lie they will not tell.

    And I am saddened that a fellow TN @OldGaffer swallowed @Babba fake news story hook line and sinker

    Babba need a fire extinguisher for those pants.

    I find it isn't even the fake news stories. What bugs me is "sources claim" or "anonymous sources" type crap. I get that its necessary once in a while, but all the time it starts making otherwise legit news outlets poor and dubious. Shoddy journalism.

    I remember years back when Dateline faked those GM trucks on fire for sensationalism. Gave them a bad reputation for years. They are almost getting that bad again.
