The Biggest Day in "Real Media" Fake News This Year?

Today was a truly epic day for Fake News from our very professional, very conscientious professional press corps which would never lie to us or pump out clickbait lies for money to save their dying industry.

A NYTimes "reporter" accuses Dan Crenshaw of not voting for a 9/11 victims compensation bill. Then questions his patriotism.

Because New York Times reporters are known for their selfless patriotism and love of country.



That's an x-ray of the shrapnel that took one of Dan Crenshaw's eyes when he was out there not being a patriot in the US armed forces.

The "reporter" then deleted the evidence of his error without offering an apology, and in fact trying to explain why he was right, from a certain point of view:



Next:



How much did they spend?

Oh yeah, right: All combined, they spent less than foreign governments or foreign banks gave to Hillary or Bill Clinton for a single "speech." (Read: Access to the levers of American political power.)



Next: If you like your scandal-free administration, you can keep your scandal-free administration:



No negative commentary or fact-check from the Hill on that. How interesting.

Next: The proudly ignorant press corps, a group of arrogant, uneducated know-nothings, dog-pile Trump for complaining that farmers can't connect tractors to the internet.

How silly!



Other journalists pounced:


Did not a one of them think to do a quick google search before proudly displaying their pathetic ignorance?

Because if they had, they would have seen that, as can be guessed at proceeding from the example of autonomous cars and GPS, that in fact tractors can be connected to the internet, where software management increases efficiency of harvest:



They should have guessed that, or at least suspected it.

This is obvious. If you'd asked me, without context, "Are tractors now often connected to the internet?," without knowing a thing, but just based upon what I know about everything else being connected, I would have said, "Yes, probably. Most likely."

These people live on the internet -- are they not aware that most machines are now connectable to the internet?

And the joke newspaper, The Hill, Vox Written By People Who Should Know Better, strikes again. This time, they claim that Trump is sending illegal immigrants to a site that was once used as an internment camp in World War II.



All of the media soon amplified this fake news, omitting two facts from readers.

Fact one, which they were either ignorant of or deliberately hid from readers: that site is just an army base, which has been an army base continuously since the civil war. The fact that it was used briefly for internment does not change the fact that it has been used, and will continue to be used, for many disparate security functions.

Fact two: Immigrant children were also sent there in 2014 -- under Obama.

Because it's fairly routine.



Hit the twitchy link starting this section to see ALL THE MEDIA run with this fake news.

But they'll fear no deplatforming from their leftwing Silicon Valley political allies. The media is permitted to propagate clickbait, divisive, RUSSIAN-esque fake news. They're credentialed to do so!

Finally, let's go back to Fat Joker and Highway Rest-Stop Habitue Brian Stelter, who's just in a dizzy panic over questioning the mental health of a presidential candidate!



Once again, I refer you to Brian Stelter himself, suggesting that all of his Democrat friends and media colleagues know Trump is crazy but can only talk about it "in whispers," and invoking the need for the 25th Amendment:

No deplatforming expected here, either.

And the cucks will applaud. They are very supportive of their liberal allies taking away the right to free speech of their conservative enemies.

Is this what the media will be doing from now until the election day?

Will Google and FaceBook continue giving them preferential treatment and allowing them to decide what "Fake News" is, despite them pumping out more Fake News than a dozen Macedonian Content Farms?
