As 2018 comes to a close, it’s time to review the year’s worst cases of media misquotes, misleading narratives, major corrections and straight-up fake news.

While last year’s fake reporting largely occurred during the media’s relentless pursuit to prove Russian collusion, this year’s list is much more varied. However, some themes emerged: stories about then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the U.S. border were routinely flagged for misinformation.

Without further ado, here is the list of 2018’s worst examples of fake news:


1. WAPO BLAMES BORDER PATROL FOR DEATH OF 7-YEAR-OLD MIGRANT

2. CNN AND THE HILL SPREAD RETRACTED SEXUAL ASSAULT CLAIM AGAINST KAVANAUGH

3. BOSTON GLOBE CORRECTS LIZ WARREN STORY — MAKES HER LESS NATIVE AMERICAN

4. NYT ACCUSES NIKKI HALEY OF PURCHASING EXPENSIVE CURTAINS

5. MEDIA STILL BLAMING REPUBLICANS FOR STEELE DOSSIER

6. CNN ANALYST PUBLISHES DUBIOUS REPORT ON ADDITIONAL KAVANAUGH ALLEGATIONS

7. CNN ACCUSES TED CRUZ OF BEING AFRAID TO APPEAR ON THEIR NETWORK

8. CNN SPREADS FALSE STATISTIC ON SCHOOL SHOOTING

9. NBC SAT ON INFORMATION THAT CONTRADICTED KAVANAUGH ALLEGATIONS

10. MCCLATCHY CLAIMS MUELLER HAS EVIDENCE THAT CORROBORATES PIECE OF DOSSIER

Here Are The Most Egregious Fake News Stories Of 2018

Please feel free to discuss any of the 32 examples listed in the link above.

And, feel free to discuss exactly why the Citizens of this Great Nation SHOULD NOT see the fake news MSM as the enemy of the American people.

I saw yesterday that the award winning German fake "journalist" could be facing charges.

And, that would be a good thing.

His paper, Der Spiegel, said that he had fabricated interviews and facts in at least 14 articles.

That means there are 14 that they know about...and who knows how many more?

Charges could include fraud for soliciting donations for Syrian orphans to his personal bank account.

Yep, 2018 has been the Year of Fake News, all right.

All 32 fake news stories are linked in the article in the OP.

Perhaps you could discuss any of the 32 fake news stories listed, even if it is to dispute they are not fake, instead of your usual trolling BS.

The guy you are referring to was awarded CNN's Journalist of the Year which tells us that 100% of his articles were fake news.

There is a reason the fake news MSM is considered the Enemy of the American people.

There is also a reason only the Low/No Information Sheeple still believe the fake news MSM.
