Let's Talk about Fake News

Interesting segment last night on 60 Minutes: How fake news becomes a popular, trending topic.

Scott Pelley interviewed a HECK of a guy named Michael Cernovich. Cernovich is a Southern California lawyer who describes himself as “right-of-center politically,” but who has become a magnet for readers with a taste for stories with no basis in fact. He describes what he does as “What I’m doing is, it’s punchy, it’s fun, it’s counterintuitive, it’s counter-narrative, and it’s information that you’re not gonna see everywhere else.”
It's also a deliberate intention to deceive. To put it bluntly, Cernovich and others like him are lying liars who lie.
One such liar describes this as “It’s kind of almost an addiction, right? You kinda see something really take off, and then as it’s coming down you’re kinda lookin’ for that next high, I guess.”
Manipulation, power trips, addiction, and belief that what the prevaricators are doing is justified. Unbelievable.

It's a trick to distract.

Donald Trump is the candidate of the Feds(the FBI and DEA).
Media is a tool of the Feds. Trump stole the President seat, part help was from media.

Now they are playing a soap opera of "fight between media and Trump" to fool people. At the purpose to distract your attention from the main issue - Trump to cut budget from civilian's living for arm and war. And the real threat to US economy - huge debt. 3/15 is the date US reaches debt ceiling - that means US government has no money to spend. Yet few words you hear from politicians and media. They cover up a big crisis.

Take this "fake" news:
Trump Staffer Grateful To Work With So Many People He Could Turn Over To FBI In Exchange For Immunity

WASHINGTON—Fully mindful of the privilege he enjoyed, Trump administration staffer Greg Potreski told reporters Friday that he was grateful to be working with so many individuals he could turn over to the FBI in exchange for immunity.

“It’s such an honor to be surrounded by almost countless people who, if it ever came down to it, I could hand over to the authorities in order to escape prosecution,” said Potreski, adding that he never imagined he’d find himself in a workplace that was staffed wall-to-wall with professionals whose comparatively more serious crimes he could expose to save himself.

“I’ve held positions in government before, but I’ve never had an experience like this—there’s an opportunity for me to do no jail time in every single office. I learn so much just by talking to these folks.”

When asked by reporters, Potreski’s colleagues said they were equally grateful to have someone like him at work.
Or this story: Snowy Conditions Proving Hazardous For Nation's Idiots"

Snowy Conditions Proving Hazardous For Nation's Idiots | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

Satire isn't fake news, and satire is way different from the stories published by assholes who duplicate web sites, who do their best to make people think their stories are real. These guys are criminals.
