Someone should write a book about the things people try to pass off as news.

Right? The popularity of such a book would almost assuredly launch a political career. Don't know why no one's tried it yet.

The "disclaimer" they added to the site after being questioned by AP reporters is in fine print on gray-on-gray at the very bottom of the page:

Yet another example of Republicans falsely accusing their opponents of some kind of evil, and then saying to themselves "You know what .. that just might work!"

And so "The media is biased and lies to you and can't be trusted" becomes "Hey, look at this great new shiny media source and please don't ask who the men behind the curtain are."

This is actually reminiscent of an even older tradition of the political parties publishing their own newspapers, which goes back to the Founding Fathers. The Hamilton-Burr duel was a response to Hamilton slamming Burr in his papers.

"What we know about audiences is they factor in the source of information when judging that information," she said. "If you are denying the reader, the listener or the viewer information you know the reader uses, the question is why do you feel the need to do this?"

TL:DR - "If you have to lie to make your case, then maybe you should just shut the fark up."

We need our own party controlled news outlet in order to establish that we're not really fascists

That phrase automatically replaces any reference to a certain class of individuals that certain website operators don't want anyone talking about. Because they don't exist. Honest!

Careful now.  You don't want to invade someone's safe space and hurt their feelings.
I'm pretty sure making almost the exact same comment yesterday got me a few hours timeout.

Free Telegraph? Sounds like commie talk.

What-the-market-will-bear Twitter sounds more accurate.

You know, drew, if that little saying bothers you so much, how about actually doing something about those trolls (yes, they are trolls and they're ruining your site) instead of these childish filters. We'd stop using it, then.
 
2017-09-19 03:50:53 PM  
This is a real problem. People are going to mistake this for real news. And when you point out they're being gaslighted, they won't care because Free Telegraph is spoon feeding them what they want to hear.

The GOP is going for the jugular of the county and they're not even pretending to do otherwise. They're seizing control and before long they're going to have a constitutional convention.

There are no trolls on Fark.  Only people with different opinions.

Quoting because funny, and also to let you know I answered your question in the other thread, but it had the record corrected, which should tell you all you need to know about the veracity of my claim.

Okay, thanks.

That image isn't mine btw, I bookmarked it when I saw it in one of the other threads. If we use it enough I'm sure it'll disappear, that happens sometimes

Unfortunately, our children is learning.

Russian bots by the 100's of thousands, spread fabricated news stories aimed to damage Democrats across Facebook and twitter, .

GEEoPEE sees nothing wrong with this as the results were in its favor.

Onward and downward!
