News behind the news. This picture is me (white spot) standing on the bridge connecting European and North American tectonic plates. It is located in the Reykjanes area of Iceland. By-the-way, this is a color picture.
Today Breitbart posted an article listing nine recent news stories that were blatantly false yet made it into the mainstream media. Please follow the link to the article to see the details on why each story is false, but here is the list of the stories:
Facebook flags Breitbart’s 100 percent accurate story, does not flag CNN’s fake news.
Washington Post handwriting expert debunked by Moore accuser.
New York Times falsely claims Secretary of State Tillerson will be forced to resign.
None of these stories are true, yet all were reported by the mainstream media and theoretically believed by the Americans who depend on the mainstream media for their news. We have reached the point where you are more likely to read accurate news on the Internet than on the major networks. That is sad.
The article shows the initial ABC tweet (which has since been deleted):
Well, that wasn’t quite what happened.
This is the correction later issued:
The article concludes:
In short, Flynn was ordered to make contact with the Russians after Trump won the election when he was president-elect. According to ABC News now, Flynn was told to see if the United States could work with Russia in order to fight ISIS, among other issues.
The correction changes certain ideas that many were originally hyping up.
It is a shame that Americans cannot depend on their mainstream media sources for honest reporting.
No one ever suggested that fighting an entrenched Washington establishment would be easy. My husband used to have a sign on his desk at work that said, “When you are up to your neck in alligators, it is hard to remember that your objective was to drain the swamp.” That is a very accurate picture of what the Trump Administration is dealing with.
Yesterday The Conservative Treehouse posted an article about the latest attempt by the Deep State to bring down the Trump Administration.
The article reports:
Always remember the basic rule that has been proven accurate 100% of the time:
When the CIA wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with the Washington Post and ABC. (and vice-versa).
Tonight using “unnamed” and the most vague descriptions of “anonymous sources” The Washington Post creates a fake news story specifically timed to release at the 5pm hour to hit President Donald Trump.
This is the tweet the Washington Post used to begin the attack on the Trump Administration:
The article at The Conservative Treehouse provides the timeline:
Transparent Media Agenda:
First indication is the timing of the Washington Post news release (5:02pm EDT).
Publication motive/intent – The Washington Post never contacted anyone in the White House for questions, nor did they ask McMaster, Tillerson or Powell for comment before publication. All three call the Post article – fake News.
Please follow the link to read the entire article. It provides a lot of insight into how the media manipulates facts to create a narrative that may not be true. The good news here is that those in the Trump Administration responded to this attack quickly, and it was quickly revealed to any thinking person that this was fake news.
It is very obvious that the long knives are out to get Donald Trump. The good news is that the people attacking him are becoming desperate and more blatant in their attacks and their disregard for the truth. If the media continues in this direction, they will lose whatever following they have left. That is good news.
