    Poll Confirms 77% Think Traditional Media is FAKE NEWS

    A new Monmouth University poll finds that over three quarters of Americans believe that the old media, that being the likes of CNN and The New York Times, regularly report fake news.

    The survey asked respondents Do you think some traditional major news sources like TV and newspapers ever report fake news stories, or not?

    A majority of 77 percent replied in the affirmative, an increase of 14 percent on last year.

    Further breaking down the figures, 31 percent said the believe it happens regularly, while 46 percent said they think it happens occasionally.

    Less than a quarter, just 21 percent, said they do not believe the legacy media reports fake news, a drop from 32 percent on last years findings.

    The survey also probed further, asking Do you think these sources report these stories on purpose in order to push an agenda or do they tend to report them more by accident or because of poor fact checking?

    Most respondents, 42 percent, said they believe it is to push an agenda, while 26 percent went with poor fact checking, and only seven percent answered both equally.

    In addition, the survey found that 83 percent believe special interest groups are intentionally trying to implant false information into the news cycle. A further 87 percent said that they believe those interest groups have tentacles in social media sites and YouTube.

    It isnt just Conservatives who are expressing these views. Even a majority of Democrats believe the legacy media is putting out fake news. A majority of 61 percent of Democrats are in agreement, an increase from 43 percent a year ago. A whopping 89 percent of Republicans answered in the affirmative, while 82 percent of independents agreed old media is fake news.

    These findings are troubling, no matter how you define fake news. Confidence in an independent fourth estate is a cornerstone of a healthy democracy. Ours appears to be headed for the intensive care unit, Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute, said in a statement.

    The findings come in the midst of a back and forth between traditional media and broadcasting giant Sinclair, which recently had local news anchors warn about the spread of fake news in the media.

    President Trump again waded in on the matter Tuesday, saying that the Fake News Networks have a sick and biased AGENDA.

    To maintain control over how the mainstream thinks and behaves, those who are actually pulling the strings use "traditional" media to spread fake news.

    Don't believe anything you hear these days. And be skeptical of everything shown to you.

    This reminds me of what Oswald Spengler observed decades ago: The press today is an army with carefully organized weapons, the journalists its officers, the readers its soldiers. The reader neither knows nor is supposed to know the purposes for which he is used and the role he is to play.

    Fake news media is the enemy of the people Trump

    US President Donald Trump has once again taken to Twitter to air his grievances with US news outlets, claiming that fake news which constitutes a large percentage of the media is the enemy of the people.

    The presidents comments were in response to a statement made by his daughter, Ivanka Trump, who said earlier on Thursday that the news media is not the enemy while expressing sympathy with those who took issue with misleading or inaccurate reporting.

    They asked my daughter Ivanka whether or not the media is the enemy of the people. She correctly said no. It is the FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the media, that is the enemy of the people! Trump tweeted.

    Trump has been on a crusade against fake news since before he took office, going so far as to refuse questions from journalists and news outlets that he takes issue with. In a recent and notable example, the US leader singled out NBC, which he called possibly worse than CNN, and denied CNN correspondent Jim Acosta a question during a joint press conference with UK Prime Minister Theresa May.


    R T.

    Its WAR against the White Race.
    Education is complete cultural marxist indoctrination.
    Media is just propaganda, social engineering and the enemy of the people.
    The financial system is run by a corrupt cabal of jewish bankers.
    All the politicians are bought.
    Even the food and water are poisoned and contaminated.

    ' Clear the Swamp Donald.
    Trump may not be perfect but hes a big and very welcome change.

    If Donald Trump were to disappear tomorrow his legacy would be to have exposed the (((mainstream media))) for what it is and to have made the term 'fake news' synonymous with it.

    Waking up millions of Americans to the propaganda they've been subjected to for so long is perhaps one of the greatest achievements of any US President in modern times and his message has already spread to most other countries throughout the Western world.

    Just look how the MSM all came out to point out Tommy was guilty, yet the highest judge in the land found otherwise and he was released.
    Our beauty is our power, our strength. We cant allow them to change us, to lessen us. I will never grant them that satisfaction, and neither should you!

    Beluga whale found in Norwegian waters 'may have been trained by Russian navy'


    A BELUGA WHALE wearing a harness found in Norwegian waters has prompted questions about whether the sea creature may have been trained by the Russian government.





    The whale was found by fishermen off the small village of Ingoya with local news outlet VG reporting that it was wearing a harness bearing the words Equipment of St. Petersburg.


    One of the fishermen told VG that the whale appeared to be quite tame and swam right up to them. The white whale swam right up to the boats and we thought it was a bit fascinating to watch, so it came all the way to our boat and rubbed up to the boat, Joar Hesten said.

    The apparent Russian origin of the whale has led to questions about where precisely the whale had come from.

    Norwegian marine biologists have said whale training is not something carried out in Norway and that if it is Russian then it is likely not for scientific research. If this comes from Russia and there is great reason to believe it, then it is not Russian scientists, but rather the navy that has done this, Martin Biuw of the Institute of Marine Research told broadcaster NRK.

    Joergen Ree Wiig of the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries says the countrys military has taken great interest in the harness.

    Audun Rikardsen, a professor at the Department of Arctic and Marine Biology at the Arctic University of Norway in Tromso, northern Norway, believes it is most likely that Russian Navy in Murmansk is involved. Russia has major military facilities in and around Murmansk on the Kola Peninsula, in the far northwest of Russia. Rikardsen said he had checked with scholars in Russia and Norway and said they have not reported any program or experiments using beluga whales. This is a tame animal that is used to get food served so that is why it has made contacts with the fishermen, he said. The question is now whether it can survive by finding food by itself. We have seen cases where other whales that have been in Russian captivity doing fine.

    Solid proof that the Russkies are rigging the US Presidential elections.

    Todays mainstream media a sinking ship






    June 28, 2010

    The Internet is fraught with worried liars seeking to confuse and mislead independent thinkers. Their motive is clear ~ scatter decoys and throw people off the path of discovery. They want to obscure the real news, knowing that truth has a flavour.



    Once you get a taste of truth
    ~ youll know what it is.



    Todays media stands at the threshold of cataclysm. The modes of media that survive, even thrive, shall be those who make bringing truth to the people their hallmark. High-impact writing, devoid of slant, spin and evasive mumbo-jumbo is what todays reader expects from a journalist. Gone are the days of the news room team-player.



    Gone are the days also of controlling
    who can and cannot access information.
    Get yourself a Macintosh.



    There is a new awareness on the streets today. It comes to the chagrin and worry of those who would bar the ordinary citizen from the power of knowledge.



    This thought police has published their concerns in an academic journal whose words fly 200 miles above the Middle American radar. The writers of this discussion are worried about new technologies that are not just cheap but sometimes even free.



    These technologies are user-friendly,
    accessible, and fast.
    More harrowing, they are global.



    Based on these new developments and digital technologies, the average citizen, given the desire to learn, can educate himself to threatening new heights. This makes the news reader of the future a different animal. He will expect more from his news media because with access to high speed Internet, he will be able to get translations of news from around the world.



    Conducting his own research,
    this new animal can compare notes,
    check facts and bounce what he has learned
    off the daily feed of his local media.



    The fog of the last century is lifting. But there is a gathering storm encroaching on every major newspaper. Their readerships are getting their news from all over the world now and it does not jibe with what they are reading in their local papers. The billion dollar question for the mainstream media is and why is that?



    A journalists credibility,
    once lost, is gone forever,
    a professor recently taught.



    So too is gone forever the reputation of one whose character has been assassinated by the press. The professor added, A journalist is in the business of truth-telling.



    If it is the truth, we get to print it. There are basic elements of a news story that should always be answered.



    Given the answers to who, where, what, when, and how,
    the why may be discerned.



    In the local paper there was a story about how Palestinian refugees had been taken in by Chile. The Spanish-speaking, predominantly-Christian country embraced these Muslims with a warm welcome. The refugees joined an already thriving population of 300,000 other Palestinians who now call Chile home.



    There were several quotes from one Palestinian family that the story featured. They spoke of their two-year ordeal living in squalid tents, fearing for their lives from harassment and attacks.



    They fled after one of their neighbors was killed in front of them. In each quote describing the atrocities suffered by this Palestinian family, the pronoun they was used to describe their attackers. This leaves a reader curious as to who they were. Never once were they identified.



    What kind of news-writing is this?
    Todays reader demands all the facts
    ~ not just some of them.
    He does not want the doctored facts
    or the censored facts.
    He wants the unaltered whole of it
    and he wants it now.



    A concern for those who own todays news media is what Howard Rheingold refers to as smart mobs in his new book. Rheingolds phrase has been adopted by sociologists who discuss in their journals the threat of self-educating new citizens who might begin to think for themselves.



    This could bring about a social revolution.
    Why such an upheaval is not good news to everyone is piquant.
    Why would such a revolution not be good news?
    It entails none of the carnage of the French, Cuban
    or Bolshevik revolutions, for example,
    so what is not to like about it?
    Why would it not be good news to have a smarter readership?
    What sinister efficacy would ignorance
    serve the captains of industry?
    Perhaps this is a feature story
    that mainstream newspapers could take for action.



    No doubt aiding the medias tailspin are exposes about historic news spanning the last century. This historic news is full of holes. What is watertight; however, is testimony.


    People who have been heretofore silenced, imprisoned and smeared by the press are coming out of the woodwork to tell their stories. Some of them have grown old and infirm enough to no longer have anything to lose. So they have given recent interviews. The fear of death has loomed over such witnesses as the truth has been kept from the world.


    Was the news media in cahoots with those to whom truth is a threat?



    What passed for news on such matters suggests that this is the case. If so, it is a scandal worthy of more than public pillory.



    That is not the kind of media Lady Columbia wants in her news rooms. This is at the heart of why newspapers are taking a nosedive.



    They have lost credibility with their readerships on a global scale.



    The muckraking that is going on today outshines Nellie Bly in that it transcends the hack-mentality of a beat reporter. There seems a higher purpose to this movement. It has taken on a life of its own, like MicroSoft-ware, except it works for the good of the people.



    A force to be reckoned with, the modern muckraking movement is rocking the foundations of the worlds belief systems, infiltrating every knowledge-base. There is no stone it leaves unturned. The literate world is experiencing a shockwave of illumination devoid and despite of the mainstream media.



    It appears that this phenomenon is beyond the scope, reach, policing and control of the current establishment ~ and much to their dismay.



    It has gone too far, too fast for retraction. It has flung forth like a strike fighter from the catapult. It has been launched like an Exocet or righteous, rollicking round.



    To the jailers of truth, to the gatekeepers of knowledge, to the barons of education ~ the Internet is the biggest nightmare of their lives.



    The World Wide Web makes what used to be viciously-guarded available to anyone who can read.



    For purveyors of half-truths, propaganda and filler gibberish, it tolls the knell of their sinking ships.



    The Internet
    has awakened
    the sleeping lion of lucidity.



    Newspapers who want to survive will need to walk a straighter line. What has passed for news is no longer holding water. People have stopped buying lies, subterfuge, ruses, cover-ups and propaganda.



    Hearsts snow-jobs have gone the way of the whale-bone corset.



    People want a media with credibility.



    Americans are waking up, wising up and bucking up. They are hungry for new caliber.



    People are tired of a press who couches and breaks bread with corrupt politicians. And crawls up the bomb-bay of Bilderberg.



    Good writing is a craft, but lying should not be.
    America does not need another Stephen Glass.




    Todays mainstream press is in deep kimchi. People are being informed by maverick muckrakers that big media has lied to them on the hard news for not just a decade, but for over 50 years.



    Things are coming out in the wash to the disgrace of big news organizations.



    The government is likewise losing credibility with an increasingly research-savvy and skeptical public.



    When it comes to the press and the government these days, people are questioning everything.




    Unlike the years prior to 1995, people are no longer limited to their sources of information. The world is now at their fingertips. If they can read and have time, they can learn about anything without setting foot into a library or leaving their homes.



    Perhaps it is time for a media renaissance.
    Change is good when things are bad.



    The time has come for a strident evaluation of the Federal Reserve. No private bank should masquerade as a Federal anything.




    So too should an in-depth analysis of our mass media be conducted by neutral outsiders who have no vested interests.



    Citing the castes of Indian princes Buddha, Krishna, and Mahavira, for example, their credibility was heightened by having nothing to lose or gain by what they taught. They were born into wealth and could not be bought. So too should evaluators of a system be enlisted, lest the truth be compromised or twisted.

    The bottom-feeders of the press who hound celebrities and smear non-threatening famous people are what The Project for Excellence in Journalism calls exploitative jackals.



    These same jackals know better than to snap at the heels of a Rockefeller or shoot telephoto of a Rothschild.



    One must pose the question, why do you think that is?



    Such jackals hounded Princess Diana and Dodi al Fayed to their deaths.



    What made Fayed a yellow press target whilst Mr. Rockefeller enjoys immunity?



    A plausible factor for the yellow presss inconsistencies about whom they hunt, harass and lampoon is either a secret loyalty to those they leave alone or a fear of tit for tat in the shooting game. What paparazzi gadfly wishes to find himself in the cross-hairs of Heckler and Koch?



    Some people are clearly above the law and the press knows it. Not exposing what they know to be the truth does not win the mainstream media points with a public who is growing more informed every day.



    Ask those babies they burned at Waco. Where was the press when they needed them?



    You want a story? Go interview Janet Reno. She should have more time to give interviews these days. Burning all those innocent people should not only be fresh on her mind, it will hound her for the rest of her days. If this was our Department of Justice at work what does it say about the rest of our government?



    There is enough real news breaking in the world without prying into the personal lives of public figures for sport and lampoonery. If some people are game for scrutiny then they should all be game for scrutiny. Inconsistencies like these are a telling wall for the dishonesty and corruption that drive todays media. Let the tailspin of the press be a sign of the times. Let it write into the sky poetic justice for a media gone wrong.



    The press has long lavished a pillory on certain people while giving others a wide berth.



    Vicious character assassinations have been made of people on flimsy premise while more questionable folks get away with murder.



    William Randolph Hearsts newspaper helped sentence a man to death in a speedy trial ~ a man whose widow protested his execution unto her death of old age. Hearsts news deliberately fanned the flames of suspicion against a man who has never been proven guilty. Once the press drags a name through the mud, it is indelibly mired. The uneven hand of the media is suspicious in a profession where blind justice is required.



    Why would anyone spend two cents on a newspaper like that?



    Given all this news it is less difficult to figure out why the entry lobby of the Miami Herald employs maximum security and uses a decoy building to distract visitors from its location.



    Why would a newspaper office have to resort to the security of Fort Knox?



    What does it have to fear from its public that merits this kind of fortification?



    The answer to these questions will reveal what can be done to save the sinking ship of todays mainstream media.



    2010 , 17 X 2019.



    2010 and little has changed. MSM is as rotten as ever. The more 'aware' you are the less you have to do with it.

    They got caught twice this week lying to the public.

    ABC News reported on fighting and bombing in Turkey or Syria showing massive amounts of machinegun fire, explosions, etc., when in actuality they were showing footage of the annual machine gun shoot at Knob Creek in Kentucky. Bastards.

    The second fake news clip was about a mother supposedly holding her dead child up to the cameras reporting about Kurds being killed. It was a clip of the aftermath of an earthquake and the child was very much alive and moving about and looking about.

    I can't believe how these bastards get away with this behavior without consequences. Slanting the news at every chance they get, showing fake film clips they know damn well has nothing to do with what they claim to be 'reporting' about.
