Fake News.

The new catch phrase of late.

Lets be real, fake news has been broadcast as the truth for years on all the big mainstream news media outlets. Only those who have no brains, actually believe everything they read & hear. Oh, I'll bet you know a few, I certainly do.

I have tried to engage them in intelligent discussion over some of the stories I just plucked out of the air, but they are so closed minded, they remind me of the idiots who went ape shit during the broadcast of The War of The Worlds back in 1938.

All the major networks & their cable offshoots have been telling you all year how Trump was going to loose & their pick was queen bee. Dewey Defeats Truman, should have woke up people who read the Chicago Daily Tribune back in 1948, but it still prints crap to this day that people believe as gospel.

If they started fining these sources of  "news" every time they were proven to have printed lies, they would be out of business in no time. Joseph Pulitzer invented Yellow Journalism & all the competing papers joined the banana boat, because he was kicking their ass in selling papers. People were not interested in the truth, they wanted sensational stories & didn't care if they were made up or not. Not much has changed in that arena it seems.

Pulitzer ( a liar who profited by doing so) became a leading figure in...You guessed it...The Democratic party and was elected congressman from New York. He crusaded against big business and corruption (except, he was big business & corrupt)

I think it is ironic & humorous that the Pulitzer prize was created in his name, to recognize artistic and journalistic achievements in the United States. Born by the originator of fake news.

I wonder how bat boy is doing.
