Democrats have come completely unhinged with the election of Donald Trump. Not only is the far left ready for straitjackets, their cohorts with bylines in the mainstream media are equally unhinged.
Ron Paul hits the nail on the head in an article on his website when he goes after mainstream media sites who wouldn’t know the truth if it hit him on the head. I’m pretty sure CNN, the broadcast media, the New York Times, and the Washington Post still haven’t dealt with the idea that Donald Trump is President-elect of the United States.
The mainstream media, in an effort to distract viewers and readers from their bias and incompetence, is on the warpath against “fake news.” They are – surprise, surprise – attacking any news outlet that doesn’t agree with them. Breitbart News happens to be at the top of their list.
So Melissa Zimdars, a radical leftist feminist professor, has produced a list of news sites that she doesn’t think either Google or Facebook should allow people to access.
On his website, Ron Paul goes after her list with a list of his own “fake news” producers and at the top of his list is CNN with nine stories that were seemingly made up out of whole cloth. The New York Times and MSNBC tied for second with six each.
Thanks to Wikileaks, we know, as Ron Paul points out, that the mainstream media was working hand in glove with the Democratic National Committee and with Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
A Washington Post reporter requested opposition research information about Donald Trump from the DNC. Donna Brazile at CNN routinely fed debate questions to Hillary. When she got caught, because of WikiLeaks, she thought she was being discriminated against when CNN fired her. A New York Times “reporter,” Maggie Haberman was also working closely with the Clinton campaign to make sure that Hillary was presented in the most favorable light.
One of the things the far left is the most upset about is that many of the news sites on their “fake news” list lead their stories with headlines designed to entice people to click and read the story. In a lot of instances that’s true, but the thing that really fires up the mainstream media and their Democratic Party overseers is that the information in the stories is accurate, unlike their reporting.
So, what happens next?
Well it seems that at least one person is paying attention, and that would be Mark Zuckerberg who runs Facebook. He said that Facebook is investigating using third parties to filter new sources. Facebook is a privately owned site and as such, is not subject to the First Amendment, so Mr. Zuckerberg can do as he pleases.
Facebook and Twitter are famous for censoring conservatives and anyone else that doesn’t agree with their far left spin. It’s going to be very interesting to see what happens over the next few months as Donald Trump is inaugurated and starts to Make America Great Again. I’m pretty sure the people who run social media – not just Facebook and Twitter, but across the board – are going to do their level best to make sure that their users know that “Donald Trump Elected President – Women and Children Suffer.”
It’ll be interesting to see the reaction of the marketplace.
