From the good people at The Gateway Pundit, here’s yet another example of MSM fake news leading to REAL consequences:
“Evidence that has been central to the two Federal judges instrumental in the March 15th revocation of President Trump’s travel ban was recently found to be false. The leaked Department of Homeland Security document first came to light via the Associated Press, where it was detailed in a February 24th article and has been cited as integral to the decision making process for the judges.
OH YEAH: RT REALEASES NEW SITE, DEDICATED TO FACT CHECKING FAKE NEWS!
“In a post-truth world, it’s sometimes hard to distinguish between what is real and what is fake news. RT’s new special project, FakeCheck, helps you to separate fact from fiction and transit into a post-fake reality.
With the proliferation of social media channels, few people find or have the time to dig into the source of information they are being fed through their Facebook and Twitter feeds. Unknowingly and against their will, they often fall prey to hoaxes, propaganda, and disinformation masquerading as real news.”
IRONY! Just in from the Washington Examiner:
“A few conservative critics predicted early on that the recent obsession with fake news would lead eventually to right-of-center newsrooms being lumped with the bad actors.
It looks increasingly likely that those critics were onto something.
Harvard University’s library website currently features a page titled, “Fake News, Misinformation, and Propaganda.”
The page URL even has the word “fake” in it.
Breaking, from Legal Insurrection:
“Tensions between legacy Washington, D.C., media and new-entrant reporters who have been granted access under the Trump Administration came to a head Friday in an alleged attack leveled at Gateway Pundit’s Lucian Wintrich by Fox News Radio reporter Jon Decker.
As reporters entered Friday’s White House press briefing, witnesses reported that Decker loudly, and allegedly physically, accosted Wintrich personally, calling him a “Nazi,” and saying of the site, “they hate blacks, Jews, and Hispanics.”
Wintrich asserted that Decker physically blocked him from entering and that he will be pressing charges against the Fox reporter.
