Blue State Blues: A Decade of Fake News

The idea of a “decade in review” article at the end of 2019 is a bit of “fake news.” Technically, the current decade does not end until December 31, 2020.

In that spirit, it is worth looking back at the past ten years through the “fake news” lens. These were years in which the mainstream media used false allegations and biased reporting to suppress conservative voices; they were also the first years in which, thanks to Andrew Breitbart, we began to resist them.


2010: Tea Party “N-word.”

2011: Sarah Palin and Tucson shooting.

2012: Mitt Romney’s taxes, and Benghazi.

2013: Obamacare collapse.

2014: “Hands up, don’t shoot.”

2015: Trump remarks on Mexicans and Muslims.

2016: Russian intervention in the election.

2017: Charlottesville “very fine people” hoax.

2018: “Kids in cages.”

2019: Ukraine phone call and impeachment.



Of course ....

There so many more Fake News stories over the last decades than just the ones listed here.

But, the real humor in this article is just how many members here at PH are still parroting these stories as if they really happened.

Of course we can't forget the most EPIC Fake News story of the decade and that was that Donald Trump couldn't win the White House.

One would think after a decade of Fake News that at least some on the Left would be skeptical.

Fake News is a fringe right wing construct and meaningless as far as objective reality is concerned, only Trump and his sycophants, minions, lackeys and lickspittles believe in the vast array of conspiracy theories surrounding this idiot of a POTUS.

Says the person who does not even attempt to refute a single fake news story posted in the OP.

Yep ...

They don't call it Willful Ignorace for nothing.

Errors in journalism have been around for millennia, so also have been corrections and opinion pieces, but the construct of”fake news” to dismiss anything you don’t want to hear is a construct of Trump Cult and won’t outlive his rancid presidency

This was the first thing that came to mind too. Remember 2016 when Shrillary was a sure bet to win.

The sounds of Democrats shaking their fists and howling at the moon will be deafening 11/04/2020.
