Fake News.pngSad and Foolish


As this image confirms, most supporters of TRUMP THE CHUMP do not draw a distinction between the truthful reporting of a fake event versus truthful reporting of an actual event.

 

Trump supporters have co-mingled FAKE and REAL just as TRUMP THE CHUMP  has so as to confuse and confound the electorate.

 

Most of his followers can't distinguish real from fake anymore.

 

To make it easier on themselves, their idea of real is anything reported by FOX and fake is anything reported by any other outlet.

 

And then, of course, there is also the problem of the founder of LEGALINSURRECTION, the origin of this image.

 

He was removed from youTube for violating copyright laws.

I agree. What on earth could he have been thinking to believe he wouldn't get caught?


Now - as has been revealed to be the truth on another thread on this site - a bunch of republican degenerates and liars have been caught creating fake news sites posing as the real thing - and the fools that voted for trump won't ever suspect that it's all republican/conservative generated lies and fake news - they will swallow it all hook, line, and sinker and wash it down with trumpaide...

ManicProgressive:  

In this case the media reported the truth. Smollett claimed he was attacked, what he claimed circumstances were, the fact he filed a police report, and that the police were investigating. The fact that the police uncovered a different plot. The media did its job. It did not make up news. The fault is Smollett’s, not the media’s.

 

 

Too too many people don’t know the difference.

 

 

You are correct, but they don't do nuance so it won't penetrate.

Not sure about the relevance of this cartoon, but if it’s commenting on fake news, how about commenting on the fake news that the DHS secretary is trying to create that kids on the border are not kept in cages?

@Manic...............If that is the take on it, I am good with it. I still think it is sad and very foolish of a man who may have had a good career to do something like this. I wonder if he was influenced by others? I have wondered what he was thinking.

It’s actually not fake news. Fake news is what media purposefully try to report false things. 

 

In this case the media reported the truth. Smollett claimed he was attacked, what he claimed circumstances were, the fact he filed a police report, and that the police were investigating. The fact that the police uncovered a different plot. The media did its job. It did not make up news. The fault is Smollett’s, not the media’s.
