Joke?

Please say you're joking...

I'm not. Why don't you think CNN is reliable? 

Check out The Knife Media. You'll see how often CNN and other major news outlets spin and/or slant the news.

EDIT: I also moved the thread to the politics section.

Sure, I trust the guy complaining people are mean to Trump, Jordan Peterson, the Nazi pug lad and all the other clowns, to provide a thoughtful and evidence-based report on the rise of fake news 🙄

Edit: WOW, he is really mad about that nazi pug guy!

So you believe a man making a joke should be fined and/or go to jail, which would have been an actual strong possibility had he not gotten support online. You sicken me. And not once was Tim ever on anyones side on those matters, he interviewed them and very rarely does his own opinion get interjected, if it does it is a slip. Maybe you should watch it and perhaps you should view Pools work and learn something about "the nazi pug guy" before making judgement. The fact that you call him the Nazi Pug guy, I'm also going to assume you know nothing of Jordan Peterson but the character assassination by the media, same with Trump. This video is pretty much directed at people like you. 

EDIT: Pool is about as far left as you can get without crossing into the new, crazy left. He was an occupy wall streeter, ffs.

As somone mentioned research just how much they twist facts and use false information to clickbait as well as cause cultural outrage and the silently rework their "news" without explaination or notice. You'll be disgusted at ever listening to what you believed was fact. There is no media immune to this and if you search "sinclair media script" you'll see even small and local outlets are controlled, scripted and outright lie.



 

A really good breakdown. It's sad to see what the news-media has become where getting Trump on every little thing is more important than facts. To me the whole thing with his comments on M-13 was pretty pathetic, the way news-media twisted his words



Nothing to see here, move along

I thought you were joking as well, bc CNN is known as the worst culprit of misinformation when it comes to liberal news stations. 

OT:  I completely agree with you, OP. I seriously loathe the media. No one is unbiased; they twist any story that is even remotely political to meet their agenda and increase viewership and money. It’s beyond disappointing; it’s disgusting and pathetic at this point. If there was any justice, there would be rules and the potential for repercussions for lying and manipulating the truth in the news. I’ll keep dreaming.

The most frustrating part of the last few years is finding myself playing devil's advocate for Trump.

Exactly this. I’m not a Trump supporter and didn’t vote for him, but seeing every freakin news outlet beside Fox News team up against Trump has almost made me feel like I want to defend him—like I’ve felt when I’ve seen someone being bullied. There’s not a person in the world that is without a single redeeming quality, but the media would lead you to believe otherwise about Trump. I mean really? Are these people that pathetic and juvenile? I’ve watched one or two of Trump’s speeches early on in his presidency and walked away feeling like he said a lot of fair and even positive things. Said to myself, “I don’t see how anyone can find much fault in that speech.” Sure enough, I turn to the news, and they were absolutely lambasting him.

Fox does the same thing with liberal/Democrat politicians, which is equally pathetic; but, they’re just one station. It’s just different when there’s a ganging-up/bullying situation.

And this is not even hyperbole. AFAIK, there is no news outlet, whether mainstream or alternative, that maintains consistent integrity in their reporting. Every once in a while, they report something with relatively little bias, but it's followed by a slew of heavily spun, slanted, or even outright dishonest articles.

I didn't vote for him either and this brings me back to another thread about people who are obviously far left acting indignant when they are presented with facts. Makes me want to make my Facebook profile picture  ofTrump. And post far right memes out of spite. Their go to now is calling everyone Russian trolls and trumpanzees
