Not shocking at all! Two thirds of all Americans – regardless of political orientation – believe the mainstream media is fake news, according to a Harvard University study. Mainstream media are the fake news thugs of the Democrat Party.
From The Hill :
Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.
According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media.
That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.
“Much of the media is now just another part of the partisan divide in the country with Republicans not trusting the ‘mainstream’ media and Democrats seeing them as reflecting their beliefs,” said Harvard-Harris co-director Mark Penn. “Every major institution from the presidency to the courts is now seen as operating in a partisan fashion in one direction or the other.”
All right, now, here’s an example of I think a pretty significant achievement, at least effort, and a fake news attempt to destroy it. Story from the Wall Street Journal: “Saudi Arabia, U.A.E. Pledge $100 Million to World Bank’s Women Entrepreneurs Fund — Donation announced at event with Ivanka Trump, an advocate for businesswomen who proposed the fund.”
…Journalists are spreading fake news about Ivanka Trump on this particular issue. It was big on Twitter over the weekend. It was totally fake news.
There is no Ivanka fund. Neither she nor her family manage, benefit, or have any control over this fund that they are setting up. It is totally unlike the Clinton family and its foundation. The money will actually go toward a fund called Women Entrepreneurs Fund, which is run by the World Bank. It’s not gonna be run by Ivanka. Now, look, I know, we can talk about it being run by the World Bank. My point here is that this is something that no previous president has really seriously tried, is to tackle the cultural inequality that exists in this part of the world.
The fake news on Twitter was that Ivanka Trump was engaged in pay-to-play with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Stored it in the Wall Street Journal story I just headlined for you. “Saudi Arabia, U.A.E. pledge a hundred million dollars to World Bank’s Women Entrepreneurs Fund.” It says that Ivanka proposed the creation of the fund, but she didn’t.
She doesn’t control it. She doesn’t raise money for it. Some were even tweeting that its name was Ivanka’s Women Entrepreneurs Fund. Reporters picked up that tweet; CNN wrote that this is virtually identical to what Trump and others in the GOP criticized the Clinton Foundation for. It’s not even close. So there has been an attempt at fake news, but it blew up.
So sensitive 😦 CNN refuses to run a pro-Trump ad because of ‘mainstream media’ fake news show with graphic using CNN and MSNBC reporters. Sad 😦
Trump tweets in response: ‘CNN EPITOMIZES MEANING OF FAKE NEWS, CENSORS TRUMP CAMPAIGN AD’
Last night, fake news CNN finally decided to report on Susan Rice ‘unmasking’ scandal by calling it fake news and telling their viewers to ignore it. Networks like NBC, ABC and CBS remained ZERO coverage until today. Same with liberal Huffington Post. I bet they finally got their marching order last night to defend Susan Rice surveillance of Trump team as obviously ordered by her boss Barack Obama who is currently in some island in Tahiti frolicking with his boyfriends .
“So President Trump wants you to believe that he is the victim of a ‘crooked scheme.’ Those are his words. And here are our words: There is no evidence of any wrongdoing.
And, in fact, if anything the [national security adviser] asking for identities was a reflection of exactly how much traffic there was involving Trump people and foreign players. The White House blasting the press for not reporting on another fake scandal being peddled by right-wing media.”
CNN’s Don Lemon:
“So let us be very clear about this, there is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team was surveilled or spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the President’s original claim and on this program tonight we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people trying to misinform you, the American people by creating a diversion. Not gonna do it.”
FAKE NEWS! TRUMP NEVER SAID THERE WAS TERROR ATTACK IN SWEDEN BUT HE WAS RIGHT ABOUT MUSLIM CRIMES IN THE RAPE OF THE WORLD
VERY FAKE NEWS CNN led the charge against Trump last Saturday claiming the President said there was terror attack in Sweden the night before the rally when there was not. Trump did not say that. Trump mentioned Sweden, according to him, ‘in reference to a story that was broadcast on Fox news concerning immigrants’, which happen to be true. Sweden is the rape capital of the world and that’s not because of their natives. Crimes skyrocketing and are being committed by Muslim migrants they imported from Africa and Middle East but are now living in no-g0 zones even their own police won’t dare enter.
Here’s Trump’s speech:
VIDEO: TRUMP EXPLOSIVE PRESS CONFERENCE AGAINST DISHONEST MEDIA: CNN ELEVATED INTO ‘VERY FAKE NEWS’, MEDIA DISHONESTY OUT OF CONTROL
( New York Post ) President Trump took his message “straight to the people” Thursday in a wide-ranging and at times contentious press conference that covered Russian relations, leaks to the media, immigration policy, the final fate of ObamaCare and a multitude of other subjects.
Trump complained at the White House presser that he “inherited a mess” from President Obama, but nevertheless pledged to fulfill his campaign promises.
“I’m here again to take my message straight to the people,” Trump said. “As you know, our administration inherited many problems across government, and across the economy.
“To be honest, I inherited a mess — at home and abroad — a mess,” said the president, who has served for less than a month, adding that “ISIS has spread like cancer. Another mess I inherited.”
Trump also used his nearly half-hour introductory statement to take a stinging shot at the press corps.
“The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people,” said Trump.
“The press is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control,” he added.
The president dismissed reports of chaos within his administration. “It is the exact opposite. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine,” he claimed.
The president even touted the crowds expected at an upcoming weekend rally in Florida. “I just heard that the crowds are massive,” he said of the event scheduled for Saturday.
Speaking of his campaign promises, Trump pledged to deal with the drug problem ailing America, claiming that “drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars.”
Trump also said he’d issue a new executive order related to a travel ban next week — and knocked the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals for blocking his last one. “That circuit is in chaos, that circuit is frankly in turmoil,” he said.
“I keep my campaign promises,” Trump said.
“There’s never been a presidency that has done so much in so short a period of time,” he added.
Trump v ‘fake news’ CNN: the rematch. President spars with its White House correspondent – then rebrands it ‘VERY fake news’
Trump called on CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta, whom he lambasted at a previous press conference, during a performance heavily laced with attacks on the ‘dishonest media.’
‘Just because of the attack of fake news and attacking our network, I just want to ask you, sir…’ Acosta began as he caught Trump’s attention.
Trump responded that, ‘I’m changing it from fake news, though,’ before announcing he would call the network ‘very fake news.’
Ouch! CNN cuts off Bernie Sanders for CNN fake news joke: “Maybe he was watching CNN fake news. What do you think? It was a joke!”
( Gateway Pundit ) CNN interviewed Bernie Sanders on Friday and asked him about General Flynn’s talks with Russia before taking office. They played a clip of President Trump saying he was unaware of the reports on General Flynn and asked Bernie Sanders if he thinks that’s a problem.
Bernie responded, “Well I don’t know. Maybe he was watching CNN fake news. What do you think? It was a joke!”
CNN’s Erin Burnett responded awkwardly saying, “I, I know it was a joke…I’m saying you don’t buy what he said obviously”
At this point Bernie Sanders couldn’t hear the CNN anchor and he kept asking, “Are we on?”
