Death Rattle of Mainstream Media


Multiple Corporate Outlets Now Labeling Each Other “Fake News”

Thanks to CNN and BuzzFeed, a war now rages among corporate media outlets, a true study in irony, as the New York Times and Guardian hurl accusations the two outlets are guilty of publishing Fake News — the same Fake News all of the aforementioned have cited in unabashed attempts to discredit legitimate alternative media.

CNN first published an article citing without including information ostensively ruinous to President-elect Donald Trump’s political career — but BuzzFeed took that ball and ran — publishing documents believed to have originated from an unnamed British intelligence officer and admittedly unsubstantiated and unverified.

Careless reporting by the mainstream press, in other words, has reached critical mass — and known publishers of Fake News are now calling each other to task for egregiously vapid journalism.

“BuzzFeed Posts Unverified Claims on Trump, Igniting a Debate,” the Timesheadline asserts, while — going a step farther — the Guardian’s article is entitled, “BuzzFeed publishes unsubstantiated Trump report, raising ethics questions.”

CNN first reported on the dossier allegedly obtained from the unnamed British intelligence official, but left out the more lurid and revealing details from the 35-pages BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith later decided were fair game for publication — despite “serious reason to doubt the allegations.”

  1. Yesterday, BuzzFeed published a story claiming that Russia had secret video tapes of Donald Trump engaged in bizarre sexual activities with prostitutes, and that this compromising material had turned Trump into a Manchurian candidate, a Russian spy essentially.

    Who would believe that bizarre story?

    The answer, of course is: Deranged liberal journalists who want to believe anything, or make up anything, to try to harm Trump. In this case, both BuzzFeed and CNN ran this story without checking some basic facts.

  2. Middle America, every day folks who live and work to try to better their lives and those of their family have STOPPED buying into all of this liberal media and by extension overt P.C. culture. The fake news/mainstream media has prostituted itself to near irrelevancy. It has what is akin to a media STD.

    The POTUS campaign of 2016 and the election of Donald J. Trump is a marker among many for 2016 that the U.S. society but also much of the western society is changing. Middle America and the likes globally is waking up to cronyism of elitism, through globalism and its socialist (cultural Marxist) mantra that in the west has been dressed as liberalism.

    The liberalism of a classic nature, espousing a general free idealism was hi-jacked by socialists over the last 30-40 years.

    President Trump is a manifestation of PUSH BACK! Fake Media as in mainstream media is INCAPABLE of seeing its culpability in the disintegration of our great, especially post WWII western society values and is fighting a losing battle.

    Ironically President Trump is shining a bright light on the mainstream media, by showing his discontent to how they are propagandists to the flawed and failing elites and are not credible news media. If they’d heed his discontent they could remake themselves back to credibility today, but they are too stubborn, too bought and paid for by what is a dying class of global elites who champion their success through socialistic ideals which only try to keep us plebs at bay. The mainstream media will not likely stop itself from its growing irrelevancy in time. The modern connected world has moved past it and we no longer need it to be informed in some ways.

    A new counter culture is being formed and push back is the rally call. Trump, Brexit, other pro western, traditional valued ideals are being carried by every day folks in American and abroad. Agenda driven, elite socialists, P.C nutters and their minions of zombie stooges will soon suffer their deserved plight.

    Donald Trump as POTUS is only the beginning and not the end. One by one eyes open up, minds are freed from overt propaganda and P.C. brainwashing to then begin to empower us all to DO WHAT IS RIGHT! The struggle to re-embrace western culture values, notably post WWII values may only be in its infancy but in time it will prevail. MSM in with us or not!

  3. The liberal media has manipulated and opinionated itself into non-relevancy, they just don’t (or stubbornly refuse to) realize it. Like Hollywood, they’re living in a fantasyland bubble in the middle of their ivory towers, ignorant as ever of John Q. Public – and it was that attitude that landed them where they are now and where they’ll remain.

  4. Its amazing how the fall from grace can happen. The days of Cronkite Rather et al are long gone. Corporate ownership of news media has not yet come to grips with the fact that HRC did NOT win the election. They really dont know what to make of the DJT win. As Les H pointed out people all over are pushing back against the norm. PC is becoming a past practice.
    Somehow the MSM is going to have to become centered and start to realize that the public isnt all tree hugging left wingnut, carbon taxing, bike lane loving , soft on crime , save the (fill in the blank).
    Every day I spend 8 to 10 hrs in a truck. Not being a music fan I force myself to listen to the NDP fan club at NW 98. The millennials that produce the daytime shows are so left wing biased that its laughable at times to listen. Note to Dickers, Allen and others. DJT won the election fair and square. Come to grips with that and move on.

  5. Message to 13. I stopped listening to CKNW some time ago for the exact reasons you mention. I couldn’t stand the obvious bias and immaturity of the on air people and their “producers”. I got an internet radio and now listen almost exclusively to U.S. talk radio stations. One good one is WMAL in Washington D.C.. I would suggest you get one for your truck, or a good data plan for your cell phone and listen to stations like that.
