    So,if the mass media puts out fake news while complaining about "fake" news sites, who wins?

    As we are all aware of, the mass media of CNN, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, Facebook, Google, the Associated press are worried about "fake" news sites.
    But, they themselves put out "fake" or extremely biased news that  tells just one side of the story, usually lauding the liberal agenda while attacking Constitutional news sites like Ron Paul's website.
    Recently a Muslim woman claimed she was attacked, which proved to be false - with no similar headlines of a retraction.
    Trump supporters are attacked on video, but no coverage by the left leaning mass media.
    Are we just pawns for propaganda?

    Pretty much. I have known we were not getting ALL of the news for years. It has continually gotten worse.

      Why do you think that is, Becky?
      Sign of the times?
      Has the U.S. government turned into a propaganda machine?
      Certain bias has taken over everything that has to do with reporting the "news"?

      I think we are being fed news according to the news company. It is proven that U.S. news is different than the news from the U.K. They give more unbiased news and we get told what whoever thinks we should know

    It has gotten worse as reporters and media companies changed their view from reporting with a bias toward Democrats to propaganda for Democrats.
    The watch dogs became lap dogs, refusing to report what made the hand that fed them look bad, eager to bark at those who annoyed the owner and said see, I'm still a watch dog because of it.

    CNN, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, Facebook, Google, the Associated press ARE the fake news sites. When cable news was created it was the slow and agonizing death of journalism.

    They took the news, and made it an editorial.
    Reporting the news is factual, editorializing the events is opinion, and therefore not real and not news.

    "FAKE News" is another PC, liberal created red herring.
    The truth is that the average person is more sheep than people, and they have proven to be useful in being manipulated by the politicians.

    PC is only unilateral, as it only applies to what the right, and not the left are doing. Basically, if the left does something it is OK by definition, and even if the right does the same thing as the left, it is WRONG by definition.

    That is where FAKE NEWS exists in the world of PC.
    The liberal left is the chief manufacturer of RED Herrings. Distract, confuse, distort to lead the pack off the real scent, we call the truth.
