Washington Post – Instrumental In Coining The Term “Fake News” – Now Wants It Gone

fullofIt looks like the propaganda wing of the establishment has decided to pull the plug on the whole “Fake News” thing they worked so hard on. Apparently their carefully crafted psychological priming mechanism designed to scatter Orwellian seeds of doubt regarding non-approved news agencies has gone awry – their own invention turned against them. Hmm. I wonder how that happened? It’s as if the left and their minions have a credibility problem or something.

Media columnist Margaret Sullivan writes:

…though the term hasn’t been around long, its meaning already is lost. Faster than you could say “Pizzagate,” the label has been co-opted to mean any number of completely different things: Liberal claptrap. Or opinion from left-of-center. Or simply anything in the realm of news that the observer doesn’t like to hear. WaPo

Sorry Washington Post, you had really bad material to work with but you tried your best. Not only did you dutifully participate in bashing President-elect Trump the entire election while downplaying Hillary’s record, you were the first ones to the punchbowl to let America know (right before the Electoral College voted) about the CIA’s evidence-thin conclusions in the Russian hacking scandal. You also tried to sell us on that whole “Russia hacked the electrical grid” thing, only to have to issue two retractions.

It should also be noted that the Washington Post was instrumental in planting the phrase “Fake News” – along with Buzzfeed, factcheck.org, and The Guardian. Once it gained momentum throughout 2016, Facebook’s new fact checkers Snopes and Politifact, along with Vanity Fair, helped push the phrase into unaware and compliant minds towards the end of October.

Take a look at this google trends search:

Given that the inflection point where “Fake News” skyrockets is approximately the last week in October (into the first week in November), let’s look at which major outlets had been using the phrase “Fake News” earlier in the year.

April 2nd, 2016: A search for “Fake News” sorted by relevance (Google’s default) for results prior to 10/29/0216.  What do we have here? Oh my, if it isn’t the CIA’s trusted source for leaking national security rumors, Jeff Bezos‘ Washington Post:

Searching for “Fake News” by date vs. relevance:

April 11th, liberal propaganda site Buzzfeed stokes the fire by following up on Facebook’s commitment to eliminate hoaxes.

September 2nd, factcheck.org uses the phrase “Fake News” factcheckj

October 5thThe Guardian reports that Buzzfeed was allegedly hacked on October 5th by a Saudi teen named Ahmad Makki, who defaced the Buzzfeed website with a message that read “Don’t share fake news about us.” Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg was hacked by the same “Fake News” hackers.ourmine2

In fact, a whole bunch of tech CEO’s and celebrities were apparently hacked by “fake news” Ahmad Makki, who conspicuously shares the same name as a famous Pro-Assad blogger who was [nsfw] murdered brought to justice by the Free Syrian Army (the jihadist rebels Hillary planned to support in toppling Assad).

October 7th, two days after The Guardian storybuzzfeed turns around and posts a story about a “Fake Hillary Clinton Speech Transcript” emanating from a “fake news” website.

October 8th, Snopes gets in on the Fake News action:

October 19th, our old friends at the Washington Post jump into the fray once again:

After the election, Google and Facebook (re?)-declare WAR on Fake News!

November 17th, WaPo publishes a story from a “Facebook fake-news writer” who thinks he got Trump elected.

wapoass

December 9th, Hillary Clinton gives her “Fake News” speech in her most victimy purple outfit, the same day propaganda seed-planting Buzzfeed was caught citing fake data in their fake news story.

So there you have it – the carefully woven phrase “Fake News” was trotted out by the MSM to try and discredit non-approved sources of information, only to collapse under the weight of their inability to lie to the general public.

    Thank you for reporting on these modern-day book burners who seek to filter news. There’s plenty of slanted news from all sides, people simply need to read it all with a critical eye.

    The Right Wing propagandists are the most successful propagandists on earth obviously. So they control the dialogue– and they used that control to make people believe that “fake news” was any Left of Center opinion. Of course Left of Center mainstream media now has to admit that the term has been made meaningless by Right Wing propagandists.

    Right Wing propagandists have gotten control of the presidency, both Houses of Congress, soon SCOTUS, most state governorships, and most state legislatures. And they delivered Putin’s choice to us as our president. This guy here:

    whom they paint as honest and truth telling, LOL.

    For Right Wing propagandists, making a term like “fake news” mean what they want it to mean, was a piece of cake. Of course, responsible media like the WA Post had to abandon the term, as it was consistently being used to unfairly bash them.

    Everything is about liberal bashing, now that we are immersed in Right Wing propaganda 24/7/365. And so the term “fake news” has been made to be about liberal bashing too.

    I hope everyone enjoys G W Bush’s 3rd term, which is what DJT’s presidency will turn out to be. But I’m sure Right Wing propagandists will try to paint it as wonderful. Will you believe them? Or will you believe your lying eyes?

    While Right Wing propagandists have been spending their time bashing liberals and accusing them of “fake news” whenever they tell a truth that is not convenient for the Right Wing, the Right Wing Congress has been trying to make it easier for themselves to get away with corruption.

    “Monday (Jan. 2nd) House Republicans voted in favor of Rep. Bob Goodlatte’s (R-VA) proposal to gut Office of Congressional Ethics of its independence. The proposal would have placed the OCE under the control of the House Ethics Committee . The proposal removed the OCE’s ability to accept or investigate any anonymous reports of alleged wrongdoing by members of Congress; barred the panel from reviewing any violation of criminal law by members of Congress, requiring it be turned over to law enforcement; gave the House Ethics Committee the power to stop any investigation at any point; and barred the ethics office from making any public statements about any investigations.”

    http://factsdomatter.com/index.php/2017/01/03/trump-didnt-kill-house-ethics-amendment-but-msm-gave-him-credit/

    This proposal was stopped, or actually only postponed, after the outraged public– that is, Democrats– Everyone else is too busy bashing liberals 24/7/365– jammed Congressional phone lines demanding that it be stopped.

    This is what the Republican party is like. The Dem party isn’t perfect. But the Republican party is the one that has all the power right now, and is using it to try to enrich themselves and destroy the nation. While the Right Wing Congress does this, the Right Wing press keeps people constantly focused on liberal bashing.

    Frog,

    Da wing lover.

    You seem to forget who coined the term. Odd no?
