If the 2016 election taught us anything as Americans, it is that the mainstream media is no longer trying at all to be discrete when it comes to their blatantly biased and dishonest reporting. Thanks to several emails released by Wikileaks throughout the election cycle, we learned that the mainstream media has been actively colluding with the Democrat Party, and rather than attempt to win back the public trust after being caught, the mainstream media has chosen to double down in their role as the propaganda arm of the Democrat party.
If you’ve been following social media over the last several days, the surely you’ve noticed that one of the most trending stories on all of social media has been a story based on ANOTHER Washington Post piece that is total “fake news.” The following is just a handful of headlines I happened to see on the subject:
While the mainstream media and their online social media counterparts have continued to push that narrative in an attempt to make President-Elect Trump look like he has no idea what he’s doing, they have completely ignored the threats of violence that continue to build from far-left groups as a direct result of those groups who are buying into such propaganda.
The story that has been circulating the last few days thanks to the Washington Compost has been a total lie and distortion of the truth as people should come to expect from that liberal rag at this point.
In the video below I review the truth of what actually happened with the commanding General of the D.C. National Guard, General Schwartz, and some of the REAL dangers the mainstream media is continuing to throw gasoline on with their dishonesty. Where have the “fact checking slobs” over at Snopes been to debunk this nonsense? Isn’t that their job now?
The issue of “fake news,” and the amount of dishonest propaganda pouring out of alleged “real news” outlets, is bordering on an epidemic. If some of the groups that plan to cause chaos in Washington or elsewhere are successful because the public isn’t adequately informed, surely people will be injured or some will die… and that is NOT acceptable…
The move was announced Tuesday by Szilárd Németh, Vice President of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s ruling Fidesz party, who said the activities of Soros-affiliated groups were linked to the promotion of mass migration. Németh stated he will introduce legislation to effectively ban their activities in Hungary, the Budapest Business Journalreports.
“Fake civil organizations of the Soros empire are paid in order to encourage the spread of political correctness and global capital overcoming national governments,” Németh said. He added, “Every means must be employed to hold back such organizations, and I believe they should be cleaned out of here. And to this end, I feel, the international opportunity has arrived with the election of the new U.S. president.”
Mr. Soros has admitted that he and his NGOs have directly had a hand in promoting mass migration and in a reply to a statement from Prime Minister Orbán he said, “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle”.
Leaked documents last year proved also that the interests of Soros were not purely altruistic, as the Open Society Foundations claimed that the migrant crisis could be exploited to raise more money for the group and its agenda.
Gregg Hunter puts the main stream media in the hot seat by exposing their blatant deception by highlighting the big picture of false reporting with Obama lies, the Clinton track record, how the outgoing administration is pushing for war, the ongoing financial collapse and MSM failure to report real news. Please watch and give Gregg a thumbs up.

On December 26 the UK Independent revealed that five people had been arrested in Egypt for faking footage of civilian suffering in east Aleppo. The Indy commented:
Five people in Port Said allegedly making fake videos purporting to show the wreckage of air strikes in the Syrian city of Aleppo have been arrested, the Egyptian Interior Ministry has said.
The videographer, his assistants and the parents of two children who appear in the footage were detained after police managed to trail the would-be camera crew to a building site awaiting demolition, a statement on Monday said.
The team reportedly admitted they had planned to distribute their work on social media, pretending it showed scenes of the injured and destruction in Aleppo, the embattled northern Syrian city which has just fallen back under government control after four years of fighting between the regime and Sunni rebels.
Meryl Streep’s speech at the Golden Globes embodies this institutional malaise perfectly. Listen to it and despair. In her rictus-smiling circle the war criminals Obama and Clinton are angels of peace and progress, the foreign wars and dronings aren’t happening, the murders and brutalisations aren’t happening, the dangerous persecution of Russia and concomitant risk of nuclear war isn’t happening, the fragmentation of American society through poverty isn’t happening. In her circle only Trump is happening; the single threat to the Progressive Utopia they believe they are inhabiting.
The Hollywood and media elites really believe this and view those of us who don’t as dangerous heretics who need to be controlled. Screaming “fake news” at any fact they can’t bear to believe is just Donald Sutherland pointing and howling in the closing shot of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
The rumours that swirl hither and yon in this day and age of deceit and deception are finding no greater friend than the mainstream media. They could not bring down the Donald in the election and so now they are resorting to a rearward action and starting rumours that once again have no substance.
The latest swill that we are expected to swallow is that the communications of President – elect Trump were compromised by the Russians. Now let me stop that one immediately and with some authority.
The reporters who are spreading the malicious untruths that Mr. Trump’s communications have been compromised are nothing more than gutter snipes and liars with an agenda that has nothing to do with reporting but more about smearing and undermining our next leaders ability to do his job well.
The reports by CNN and Buzzfeed sent other news organizations, including The New York Times and The Washington Post, scrambling to publish their own articles, some of which included generalized descriptions of the unverified allegations about Mr. Trump. By late Tuesday, though, only BuzzFeed had published the full document.
BuzzFeed’s decision, besides its immediate political ramifications for a president-elect who is to be inaugurated in 10 days, was sure to accelerate a roiling debate about the role and credibility of the traditional media in today’s frenetic, polarized information age.
And the punchline, where the NYT essentially accuses both CNN and BuzzFeed of stooping to the level of “fake news” disseminators:
Of particular interest was the use of unsubstantiated information from anonymous sources, a practice that fueled some of the so-called fake news — false rumors passed off as legitimate journalism — that proliferated during the presidential election.
It then continues its scathing critique of what now passes as “journalism”
On Tuesday, president-elect Trump tweeted about General Motors, stating the GM was building its Chevrolet Cruze in Mexico, importing them to the US tax-free, and selling them at US car dealers:
GM quickly denied Trump’s tweet, and in a press release that same day, the company claimed that all Cruze sedans sold in the US are “built in GM’s assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio”, and that GM builds the Cruze hatchback for global markets in Mexico, with only a small percentage being sold in the US…
…and the MSM and other liberal outlets were quick to pounce on GM’s statement, using it to slander the president-elect. US News, ABC News, and many others, including the Wall Street Journal, all published articles containing the information in GM’s press release. US News went out of its way to post a clickbait headline which alluded to “the truth” about Trump’s tweet, with the following quotation:
General Motors Company (ticker: GM) is pushing back after President-elect Donald Trump early-morning Twitter attack, in which the incoming president took aim at GM for making its Chevrolet Cruze in Mexico and shipping them tax-free to the U.S. for sale.
That’s not the full story, says GM.
“General Motors manufacturers the Chevrolet Cruze sedan in Lordstown, Ohio,” a General Motos spokesman told U.S. News & World Report in a statement Tuesday. “All Chevrolet Cruze sedans sold in the U.S. are built in GM’s assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio.”
GM says it also builds the Cruze hatchback in Mexico to sell in global markets, and only a “small number” of those are sold in the U.S. It did not clarify the number. The hatchback model went on sale in the U.S. for the first time this fall.
Mangling facts for the benefit of U.S. government’s anti-Russia, anti-Trump propaganda campaign, yet again corporate media published an article — which subsequently went viral — claiming that, in an interview, Julian Assange ‘praised’ Donald Trump but ‘blasted’ Hillary Clinton because, essentially, he’s working for The Russians.
It simply isn’t true.
In short, corporate media is guilty of publishing fraudulent clickbait — Fake News — the exact thing it claims to be waging a war against.
Claims by unnamed officials from the CIA alleging Russian agents hacked the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s emails have been presented by the corporate press as if proven true — yet no evidence has surfaced to back the allegations.
CNN, one of the media outfits that regularly complains about “fake news,” ran a fake news story of its own when it claimed that Russia was closing an Anglo-American school in Moscow as retaliation for President Obama’s sanctions.
However, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova responded swiftly by denying that the school had been closed.
The misreported story is an embarrassment for the network, which has run a series of articles over the past month complaining about so-called fake news.
