(Freedom.news) Struggling to remain relevant in the Information Age, the so-called ‘mainstream media’ is looking for some reason to explain how they could have been so wrong about Donald J. Trump and why, after dedicating their hearts and soul to Hillary Clinton they couldn’t push her fainting, wobbly behind across the finish line.
Well, the MSM seems to have found its culprit: Fake news is what got Trump elected. In fact, there was so much fake news that despite trashing Trump 24/7 and singing the praises of the most criminally investigated, national security-compromised presidential nominee in the history of the planet, the MSM just couldn’t break through it.
And if you believe that, we have several thousand acres of beachfront property in Montana to sell you.
The MSM is correct in that there was quite a bit of phony reporting this past election cycle. But they are wrong in trying to lay the blame on the so-called “alt-right” and alternative media. If anyone is guilty of publishing fake news, it’s the mainstream media. From skewed polling favoring Democrats to publishing every outrageous (and false) claim made against Trump, the MSM went all-in for Clinton, leaving any shred of journalistic integrity behind.
And to that end, former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, himself a multiple presidential contender, has just released a list of the most fake news reports and reporters:
This list contains the culprits who told us that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and lied us into multiple bogus wars. These are the news sources that told us “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” They told us that Hillary Clinton had a 98% of winning the election. They tell us in a never-ending loop that “The economy is in great shape!”
As expected, the usual suspects are listed: Reporters and editors from The New York Times, the Washington Post, ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN, Huffington Post, and so on. As evidenced by emails released by Wikileaks, these “journalists” all colluded in some way with the Clinton campaign.
CNN is Paul’s biggest alleged culprit, with nine entries, followed by the NY Times and MSNBC, with six each, Infowars reported.
The point is, yes – there is fake news out there. But it’s not coming from the sources you’re being told about. It’s coming from those who are pointing their fingers.
