SHOCK LIST: Last Week The National Media Spread THIS MUCH Fake News
It seems like only last week that Donald J. Trump was sworn in as our nation's 45th president -- oh, wait it was last week! And yet, look at all the outrageous Fake News our national media has managed to generate in just seven days.
1. MSM Lies About Trump Having 'No Evidence' To Back Up Illegal Vote Claim
In 2014, no less than the leftwing Washington Post published a study backing up Trump's claim about potential illegal voters.
Nevertheless, this has not stopped every lying freak in the media from declaring Trump a liar. And that includes lying freaks who work for … The Washington Post!
2. To Hurt Trump, ABC News Deceptively Edits Ari Fleischer
Ari Fleischer, former Press Secretary for George W. Bush, praised Sean Spicer, Trump's Press Secretary.
ABC News intentionally used magic editing to lie, to make it sound as though Fleischer blasted Spicer.
3. Media Falsely Claims Trump Removed Bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from Oval Office
Time's Zeke Miller, who was serving at the time as the entire media's pool reporter, used his Twitter feed to publish the incendiary lie that Trump had removed the bust of the civil rights leader from the Oval Office.
Without checking, the MSM ran like escaped lunatics with the Fake News.
4. CNN's False Claim About Nancy Sinatra
Apparently, without discussing it with her, CNN went ahead and claimed that Nancy Sinatra was "not happy " about Trump using the song "My Way" at his inauguration.
Nancy Sinatra herself declared the CNN report an outright "lie."
5. The Atlantic Falsely Claims Fetal Heartbeats Are "Imaginary"
The leftwing Atlantic is apparently upset that ultrasounds might convince expectant mothers to see their unborn child as something other than easily-aborted goo.
In a humiliating correction, The Atlantic was forced to toss away its junk science and admit, "This article originally stated that there is 'no heart to speak of' in a six-week-old fetus. By that point in a pregnancy, a heart has already begun to form."
6. MSM Spread Phony Picture of Trump's "Sparse" Crowd Size
Remember all the white space on the ground in the Trump photo?
7. Media Deliberately Misrepresents Sean Spicer's Claim About Inauguration Audience
On Saturday, Sean Spicer punched the MSM bully dead in the nose with a statement that included the following, "This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe.”
In an attempt to make Spicer, and by extension Trump, look ridiculous, this statement was spun by much of the MSM to make it sound as though Spicer was talking about the physical crowd at the Inauguration. See this BuzzFeed News tweet as an example.
Clearly, Spicer was talking about the overall audience, the physical crowd and those viewing at home. And on that particular point, the leftwing Entertainment Weekly (that knows something about television ratings) says he is probably correct:
Trump’s numbers are all the more remarkable considering he’s entering into office with rather low approval ratings compared to past presidents and sparked protests worldwide along with vows to not watch his inauguration.
And actually, Trump could have been seen by more viewers than either Obama or Reagan. Nielsen ratings do not account for online viewing, which has grown sharply in recent years and is far more commonplace than even four years ago.
8. Hysterical Claims About the White House Website
An incoming presidential administration remakes the White House website to reflect the current president's policies, goals, and vision. This is standard operating procedure. The news media know this. This is also common sense.
9. The New York Times Lies About Rick Perry
Last Wednesday, just prior to his confirmation hearing as energy secretary, The New York Times lied. The so-called Newspaper of Record, spread the Fake News that Perry didn't understand what his job entailed.
10. USA Today Uses Parody Account to Attack Rick Perry
Just last week, New Media debunked false reporting from back in December by USA Today. This Fake News was not corrected until last Thursday.
11. Media Attacks Trump Nominee Over Prayer
The leftwing Washington Post attempted to make Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue, Trump's nominee for agriculture secretary, look like some kind of anti-science freak simply because he once prayed for rain.
12. Washington Post Lies About White House Website Promoting Melania Trump's Jewelry Line
This was just a flat-out lie.
The American National Media is the most dishonest and deceitful mob of intentional liars I have ever come across.
And they are just getting started.
