Killing Fake News - Can Trump do it?

"The forces of Darkness are very strong"

TRUMP DECLARES NATION'S BIGGEST ENEMY IS 'FAKE NEWS'... 

  • President Trump tweeted that 'fake news' is America's 'biggest enemy'
  • He passed judgment just after returning from a summit with North Korea's brutal dictator Kim Jong-un
  • Trump has long-hated news outlets that he sees as unnecessarily harsh to him
  • He singled out CNN and NBC on Wednesday for special scorn  
  • Contentious fights with the press are a centerpiece of Trump's PR strategy since he has higher approval ratings
  • Shortly after taking office he told reporters: 'I want to see an honest press; the public doesn’t believe you people anymore'

 

Meantime, back at the Lie-Mills...

ZUCKER RENEWS AT CNN THROUGH 2020...

The veteran broadcast executive, who has served as president of Time Warner’s cable news channel since 2013, signed a new deal several months ago that will keep him at CNN through the 2020 election. CNN’s wall-to-wall coverage of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign juiced ratings, and the network’s adversarial coverage of the Trump presidency has infuriated the president, with Trump and his cronies frequently attacking Zucker’s army of journalists.

IF you Ran a Media Empire...

"The problem, of course, is that everything can — no, will — change again overnight. Instant Articles will come. Instant Articles can go. And future phenomena — augmented reality, the power of audio to deliver targeted information, natural language processing, artificial intelligence — hang out there with uncertain impact. That is why... I’ll try to take what we know and see coming today and propose a path, focusing primarily on the relationship strategy."

Q breakout? A whole new ballgame for Pro-Trump news distribution

    QAnon related theories hold that a cabal of elites, including celebrities, Democratic Party leaders, and the deep state, are the source of all evil and that Trump will conquer them all.   The complex set of interwoven theories revolve largely around promoting a positive interpretation of Trump's leadership.

How 'QAnon' emerged

In October 2017, an anonymous person who claims to have access to top-secret information (and a so-called Q-level government security clearance), began posting cryptic messages on an online message board known as 4Chan. The vague notes are written in poem-like verses, which "QAnon" followers call "breadcrumbs," or clues to understanding Trump's secret counter-coup against evil.

Followers believe there will be a "Great Awakening" before a "storm" — an idea derived from the president's unclear reference last year to " the calm before the storm " — during which Trump will conquer elites, globalists, and the deep state. And Democrats including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will ultimately find themselves locked up in Guantanamo.

People like Scott Adams are NOT believers in the idea that Q is real.

DRUDGE is Winning ! (the Media Wars)

TRUMP: CHECK DRUDGE!
'Captures stories that people want to see'...

“I saw a headline on Drudge, I think, this morning,” Fox News host Steve Doocy told Trump Friday. “Unemployment at a 44-year low.”

“Drudge is great, by the way,” Trump said on “Fox & Friends.” “Matt Drudge is a great gentleman, who really — I don’t know, he’s got an ability to capture stories that people want to see.”

“But that was the number-one story on Drudge — 44-year low, unemployment,” he continued.

Drudge is the founder of the influential Drudge Report website, which posts links to news stories from around the web.

Trump Urges Washington Post Staffers to Strike

e0193c2a55742550a5ae808e423e1f9f

President Trump on Sunday took aim at a news organization he routinely accuses of fabricating stories with a made-up claim of his own. “Washington Post employees want to go on strike because Bezos isn’t paying them enough,” he wrote on Twitter. The comment was met with amusement and dismay by Washington Post reporters, many of whom took to Twitter to dispute the claim.

FILE - In this Jan. 10, 2017, file photo, pharmaceuticals billionaire Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong waves as he arrives in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York for a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. T

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A biotech billionaire who purchased the Los Angeles Times with an eye toward restoring its independence and vigor will officially take control of the news organization Monday, the newspaper reports .

Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong (soon-shong) is spending $500 million to buy The Times, San Diego Union-Tibune, Spanish-language newspaper Hoy and some community newspapers from Chicago-based Tronc.

The deal, announced Feb. 7, returns The Times to local ownership after nearly two decades under rocky Chicago control. The newsroom has been led by three editors in 10 months and five publishers in four years.

Soon-Shiong, 65, will become executive chairman of the California News Group.

He plans to move the newsroom from its iconic downtown headquarters to a modern building under construction 12 miles (19.3 kilometers) south in suburban El Segundo. The property will include a Times museum gallery, event and retail space.

Soon-Shiong takes on a storied yet diminished news organization that once had more than 1,200 journalists and more than 25 foreign bureaus. Now, The Times employs about 400 journalists with bureaus in Sacramento, Washington and some foreign and national outposts.

Newspapers across the country have struggled as readers and advertisers flock to the internet. Soon-Shiong has promised to rebuild The Times.

50 Media Mistakes in the Trump Era: The Definitive List...

PEW: Americans grapple with recognizing facts in news stories...

Only a quarter of U.S. adults in a recent survey could fully identify factual statements - as opposed to opinion - in news stories, the Pew Research Center found in a study released on Monday.

The survey comes amid growing concerns about so-called fake news spread on the internet and social media. The term generally refers to fabricated news that has no basis in fact but is presented as being factually accurate.

Facebook Inc , Alphabet Inc's Google and other tech companies have recently come under scrutiny for failing to promptly tackle the problem of fake news as more Americans consume news on social media platforms.

. . ."There is a striking difference in certain Americans in distinguishing what are factual statements and what are not and that depends on one's level of digital savviness, political savviness," Amy Mitchell, director of journalism research at Pew Research Center, said in an interview.

The study also found that when Americans call a statement "factual" they overwhelmingly also think it is accurate. They tend to disagree with factual statements they incorrectly label as opinions, Pew said.

Welcome to America, the home of the Lie-Stream Media

DAD: GIRL ON 'TIME' COVER WAS NEVER SEPARATED FROM MOTHER...

EXCLUSIVE: 'They're together and they're safe.'

4D7EB36200000578-5869829-image-a-18_1529

Father of Honduran two-year-old who became the face of the family separation crisis when she was photographed in tears as her mother was searched by U.S. border control speaks out

    Denis Javier Varela Hernandez spoke out about the status of his wife Sandra, 32, and daughter, Yanela, 2
    Yanela became the face of the immigration crisis after a Getty photographer snapped a photo of her in tears
    Speaking to DailyMail.com Hernandez said he has still not been in direct contact with his wife Sandra because he does not have a way of communicating
    He says all he can do now is wait, and says he is happy that 'they are safer now than when they were making that journey to the border
    Sandra was part of a group that were caught by Border Patrol agents after making their way across the Rio Grande river on a raft
    She set out on her journey from Puerto Cortes, Honduras to the U.S. at 6am on June 3 and allegedly paid $6,000 for a coyote
    Hernandez  said he did not support his wife's decision to make the journey with their young daughter in her arms and never got to properly say goodbye

ALL FAKED! Fake photo, fake news, fake media and the engineering of fake outrage to push an open borders invasion of America

The now-infamous “family separation” photo you see below, taken by John Moore and licensed by Getty Images, has become the emotion-infused rallying cry for fact-devoid Leftists to demand unlimited open borders that would flood the United States with illegals.

It has now emerged that the photo is “fake” in the sense that the girl wasn’t separated from her mother at all. Young girls cry for a million reasons: They’re sleepy, they want more ice cream, they don’t like the food, and so on. But the deceptive left-wing media claimed this girl in particular was crying because she was forcibly separated from her mother by U.S. Border Patrol.

That claim, we now know, is a complete lie.

LIE EXPOSED by WH

White House accuses Democrats and media of exploiting toddler photo

(Reuters) - After weeks of criticism over the separation of immigrant families, the White House seized on a photo of a Honduran toddler seen sobbing at the U.S.-Mexican border to accuse Democrats and the media on Friday of exploiting the picture to push their agenda on immigration.

The photograph, taken by Getty Images photographer John Moore at the scene of a border detention this month, became a powerful image in the media coverage of the separation of families at the U.S.-Mexican border.

Dozens of newspapers and magazines including Time and the Washington Post published the image.

The image, widely seen as showing the girl crying over being parted from her mother, helped swell outrage at home and abroad that pushed President Donald Trump to back down on Wednesday on his administration's policy of separating children from their families while the adults were prosecuted for illegally crossing the border.

Getty's caption on the June 12 picture taken at the Texas border town of McAllen said the photo showed a 2-year-old Honduran asylum seeker crying as her mother was searched and detained. The caption said the detention could lead to possible separation, not that this had occurred.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Friday the mother and child had not been separated, and accused Democrats and the media of exploiting the picture.

"It’s shameful that dems and the media exploited this photo of a little girl to push their agenda. She was not separated from her mom. The separation here is from the facts. Dems should join POTUS (the president) and fix our broken immigration system," she tweeted.

. . . For its cover this week, titled "Welcome to America," Time magazine cropped the picture to show just the girl, juxtaposing it with a picture of Trump, as though he were looking down at her.

On Friday, Time published a correction saying: "The original version of this story misstated what happened to the girl in the photo after she (was) taken from the scene. The girl was not carried away screaming by U.S. Border Patrol agents; her mother picked her up and the two were taken away together."

Fake News Fights back

Just looks at the Propaganda on the Cover of TIME Magazine...

(they should change their name to: LIE magazine, perhaps):

Time magazine’s ‘creepy’ Putin-Trump cover is what media subversion really looks like

5b50c734fc7e9352108b45e7.png

Staring out from the front cover of this week’s ‘Time’ magazine is a striking, unsettling picture of Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump morphed into one. The hidden, yet unsubtle messaging behind the image is equally unsettling.

Time describes the image as “meaning to represent this particular moment in US foreign policy, following the pair’s recent meeting in Helsinki, Finland.”  However, what it really represents is the way that a major US media outlet wants its readers to see these two men.  As strange and creepy figures who are in some way linked.

The publication cannot write a story which backs up allegations that the two presidents have some kind of conspiratorial relationship, but it can print an image which insinuates it, demanding your attention and entering your subconscious. If investigators want a textbook example of how the media attempts to subvert and influence, then look no further.

How many other morphed images of world leaders has Time featured on its famed front page?  None. There is no Trerkel, no Macrump not even a Tru Jong-Un. With these leaders there is no conspiracy to sell and no bandwagon on which to jump.

The US is still wrestling with the reality of Trump as president and claims of election interference. The mainstream constantly debates how it was allowed to happen at all, and here Time wants to provide the answer in one unsettling picture. It must have been Putin, the two are so close they could be one person the image suggests, they’re two sides of the same coin.

RT can exclusively reveal that the two do, in fact, have extremely serious connections: they both currently find themselves as the leaders of the two biggest nuclear powers on Earth. That is an incontrovertible fact and, as Trump said in Helsinki, he decided to take a political risk by meeting Putin in an attempt to reduce tensions. In America’s current political climate that is more than enough to get you an insidious Time magazine front page.

At least Trump is able to still TALK to the people who own & run the NYT

" must dismantle this architecture and replace it with one that is in synch with its mode of operation "

20agprofile1-jumbo.jpg?quality=90&auto=w

Arthur Gregg Sulzberger took over as Publisher at the NY Times less than one year ago.

9 hours ago

Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the New York Times. Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, “Enemy of the People.” Sad!

(this is from a 2017 article about the TRUMP Insurgency):

Front One: Communications Infrastructure.

.... the first step of any conflict is to disrupt the enemy’s communications and control infrastructure.

Our legacy sensemaking system was largely composed of and dominated by a small set of communications channels. These included the largest newspapers (e.g., NYT and Washington Post) and television networks (e.g., CNN, CBS, Fox, etc.). Until very recently, effectively all sensemaking was mediated by these channels and, as a consequence, these channels delivered a highly effective mechanism for coordinated messaging and control. ...

..... Rather than endeavoring to establish control over the legacy infrastructure, the Trump Insurgency is in the process of destroying it entirely and replacing it with a very different architecture. ....

....They are simultaneously attacking the legacy power structures on multiple fronts (access, business viability and, in particular, legitimacy) while innovating entirely novel approaches to the problem of large scale communications and control (e.g., direct tweets from POTUS). ...

.... The Trump Insurgency .... form of governance is structurally incompatible with the legacy media architecture. It is intrinsically dissonant with the kind of top-down, slow, controlled, synchronized approach of the old media. It therefore both must dismantle this architecture and replace it with one that is in synch with its mode of operation and, thereby, benefits massively by hamstringing any collective intelligence that works in the old top-down fashion (i.e., all existing forces currently at play).

 I fully expect the Insurgency to win this fight. .... I expect the memetic efficacy of the New York Times, CNN, the Washington Post, MSNBC and related channels to be near zero within the next two to four years. I would not be surprised to see several of these entities actually out of business.

The Empire of Fake strikes back (again)

New York Times publisher and Trump clash over president's threats against journalism

President Donald Trump and the publisher of The New York Times, A.G. Sulzberger, engaged in a fierce public clash Sunday over Trump’s threats against journalism, after Sulzberger said the president misrepresented a private meeting and Trump accused The Times and other papers of putting lives at risk with irresponsible reporting. 

Trump said on Twitter that he and Sulzberger had discussed “the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, ‘Enemy of the People.’ Sad!” 

In a five-paragraph statement issued two hours after the tweet, Sulzberger said he had accepted Trump’s invitation for the July 20 meeting mainly to raise his concerns about the president’s “deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric.” 

“I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous,” said Sulzberger, who became publisher of The Times on Jan. 1. 

“I told him that although the phrase ‘fake news’ is untrue and harmful, I am far more concerned about his labeling journalists ‘the enemy of the people,'” Sulzberger continued. “I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.” 

This is particularly true overseas, Sulzberger said, where governments are using Trump’s words as a pretext to crack down on journalists. He said he warned the president that his attacks were “putting lives at risk” and “undermining the democratic ideals of our nation.” 

Sulzberger’s lengthy, bluntly worded rebuttal was a striking rejoinder to the president by the 37-year-old publisher of a paper with which Trump has had a long, complicated relationship. And it apparently touched a nerve: The president fired off a series of angry tweets in the afternoon, accusing newspapers of being unpatriotic.

Carl Bernstein: CNN to Trump era what WASH POST was to Watergate...

NYT: How Donald Lost Re-election in 2020...

...as Trump seethed — and tweeted — in defeat late Tuesday and President-elect Elizabeth Warren celebrated, the arc of the Trump story is starting to make more sense than it has for much of his chaotic presidency:

The normal rules of politics do apply to Donald Trump, after all.

Four years ago, he became the fifth man to win the presidency while losing the popular vote. Now he becomes the fourth of those five — along with John Quincy Adams, Rutherford Hayes and Benjamin Harrison — to serve only a single term, and to be unpopular during most of it. The exception is George W. Bush, who benefited from being a wartime president...

. . .Warren’s liberalism, meanwhile, did make some voters anxious, exit polls showed. But most swing voters do not follow the minutiae of policy debates, and many simply decided that she understood their problems better than Trump.

She and Holder consciously borrowed from the populist strategy of Obama’s 2012 campaign against Mitt Romney. Rather than emphasize Trump’s personal behavior, as the 2016 Clinton campaign did, they cast him as a greedy billionaire who corruptly used the presidency to enrich himself further. They also largely ignored Trump’s repeated criticisms of the ongoing N.F.L. national anthem protests.

(you can smell the stench of Old discredited ideas rotting in the article)

Elizabeth Warren?  The writer must be joking/

Trump tweets are Truth-telling, more than they are seething.

How is Trump "enriching himself"?  It was corrupt Dems like the Obamas & Clintons, who did that.

The Mainstream Media’s Anti-Trump Rhetoric is Increasingly Dangerous

The publisher of The New York Times warned President Trump during a private meeting that his “inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.”

(the lefty scumbag, Sulzberger, needs to look in the mirror, if he wants to see a monster)

A.G. Sulzberger said he was concerned about the president’s “deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric” and warned his statements are “dangerous and harmful to our country.”

“I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous,” Sulzberger wrote in a statement. “I told him that although the phrase ‘fake news’ is untrue and harmful, I am far more concerned about his labeling journalists ‘the enemy of the people.'”

President Trump responded with...

When the media - driven insane by their Trump Derangement Syndrome - reveals internal deliberations of our government, it truly puts the lives of many, not just journalists, at risk! Very unpatriotic! Freedom of the press also comes with a responsibility to report the news...

The truth is that the Mainstream Media is out of control. They have lost all sense of reality in their quest to take down the Trump Administration.

 

And frankly, the Mainstream Media’s anti-Trump rhetoric is increasingly dangerous and I fear it could lead to violence against the First Family.
