UPDATED: Fake News, Some CNN Examples… (A List I Found)

Howdy, folks!  Happy Saturday!

I’ve been beating a certain drum for years now – the drum that says the media and our politicians are inextricably linked and collude daily to increase the size and scope of our “grand experiment in self-Government”. There are a lot of folks who certainly over the years have picked up on the fact that many major figures in the media (and the corporations that pay them) have a definite bias towards what we collectively refer to here as “the Left”. What started out as vague allegations of bias have certainly over the last few years become the norm – it is undeniable now that these organizations serve to push their (corporate) agendas. Whether it is looking the other way when their favored party commits an egregious act, or attacking without mercy when the unfavored party transgresses, these media corporations just keep right on doing what they do.

So what?

Folks like James O’Keefe and Project Veritas keep pointing this bias and attitude out, and the media naturally keeps acting as if someone’s accused them of hiding Hitler in their basement. Every argument over fake news generally degenerates to the point of “well, show me a list”, followed by someone sticking their fingers in their ears and refusing to believe that their beloved Fox, MSNBC, or CNN has been literally lying (or maybe just distorting the truth a little, and leaving out a detail when absolutely necessary to preserve their narrative). For those of us who watched the media’s behavior during the “scandal-free” (puke) Obama years, it’s just accepted as fact. Making a list of things like this takes a lot of time, and a lot of folks have just become so accustomed to the lies that they’ve tuned out these sources of “news” altogether.

I Found a Fake News List!

And without further ado, here is “The List”, courtesy of Reddit User Vicious43. I’m going to be reformatting each of the links as I validate them today and tomorrow so that everything is captured here on akula51.net as well.  There will be a post for each media outlet found in the original.
