Political Fake News and Biased Coverage.

Biased Coverage?

Apparently there is nothing about this fake news that is news at all.

Politico is it real or is it just another fake. 

Warning what you are about to see might be offensive to some people.

The truth shall set you free but biased news coverage could be considered a shackle around your feet.

Can you imagine what it would be like if the freedom of the press extended to covering the truth instead of lies and biased presentations of nothing?

A so called news story was published on the 12th of this month you can read it here if you dare?

source.

Case in point.

When you begin to digest this drivel you begin to see just how twisted and messed up some of these so called journalists actually are…

Seventy-five years ago, tens of thousands of white Southerners responded with agitated concern when they learned both by word of mouth and in some regional newspapers that First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was traveling widely throughout the former Confederate states, quietly organizing black women into secret “Eleanor Clubs.” The club motto, “A white woman in the kitchen by 1943,” portended a dangerous inversion of the region’s longstanding racial patterns.

Looking at the missing facts of this particular fake news story you have to wonder what are they thinking?

Then you see a little later in the story what they are thinking and it is both alarming and seriously messed up thinking.

The internet is a faster and wider distribution channel than anything that was remotely imaginable in 1942. Once heralded as a powerful agent of democratization, in more recent months, it has provided a powerful platform for purveyors of rumors, hate speech and fake news. But an empirical study that appeared recently in the Columbia Journalism Review 

suggests that the internet has not infected Americans equally or indiscriminately with fake news.

Attacks a group of people here?

Republicans tend to be easier marks for conspiracy-laden sites like Breitbart News (which recently claimed, without a shred of evidence, that former President Obama tapped then-candidate Donald Trump’s phone lines) and Infowars (which played a prominent role in promulgating Pizzagate); conversely, Democrats tend to absorb both left-leaning opinion outlets and mainstream outlets that adhere to standard fact-checking and editorial quality standards.

Calling Republicans Racists…

That apparently is what this alleged fake news story is about.

The only problem here is that none of this connects to fact…

Then you have this…  source Politico.com

“Just as a particular subset of Americans proved unusually receptive to fake news and conspiracy in the 1940s, it may be time to acknowledge that a particular subset of Americans, today, has grown unhinged from reality.”

Is it true?

Are Republicans racists ?

Because of how the information is presented here this article is pretentious and inventive certainly but lacks any basis in fact therefore it is an alarming thing to read more so when you consider how “realistic” they attempted to make it sound.

They offer “not a shred of evidence” to support this theory that they bring up creating a juxtaposition between southern white bigots in 1942 and white republicans who look to the internet for information  in 2017 when news organizations are so biased that in order to receive any other view point the internet is the only other source of differing opinions.

Apparently that is a Racist thing?

They pretend that the NSA and other Intelligence Organizations do not engage in (Intelligence Gathering) thats what they do if they were not doing that what good would they be?

Please…

So, Who do you believe?

The News Media that “Pretend that no wiretapping happened?” Or do you believe that it did happen because there was a warrant obtained and that it was executed.

Im curious really because when you have people in the media that deny the obvious in such a partisan way but then get upset about irrelevant news when the story does not suit their agenda, what is it that makes theses people believe that they are bringing news worthy subject matter to the table.

Lets see so wiretapping was happening…

Washington (CNN)A federal appeals court ruled on Thursday that the telephone metadata collection program, under which the National Security Agency gathers up millions of phone records on an ongoing daily basis, is illegal under the Patriot Act.

The government has argued it has the power to carry forward with the program under a section of the Patriot Act, which expires in June. Lawmakers are locked in a debate on whether or how to renew the authority, which was first passed shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on New York and Washington, but has been renewed by both Presidents Bush and Obama in the intervening years.

But now (there is no evidence) that Trump was wiretapped.

Amazing…

Documents confirming the program’s existence were first revealed in June of 2013 with the leaks by former government contractor Edward Snowden.

But then I guess everyone must be white bigots with a history of white southern racists?

The real question here is a simple one.

Is this freedom of the press?

Is this what the constitution protects?

OR is this something very different than Freedom of the Press.
