Fake News

Recently there have been a bunch of silly notices about Fake News.

Ahem, let me just say this once: I KNOW IT IS A BAD AND NOT VERY CREDIBLE SOURCE.

So there are two reasons fake news could have gotten big: one is that every single person on earth is an idiot and will believe any information put in front of them. The failure of communism proves this is not true. The other option is, people have discerning tastes. Go into any wine store and this becomes evident.

So why have the news stores of olde become the Zinfandel Shangri Lah of modern times? Why do people go to the cheap boxed wine of Fake News in order to slake their thirst on the ‘daily news diet’?

Simply put: Modern Media put too much pee in their wine and now the boxed wine of fake news, without getting any better, is a much finer product.

This will be put in simple, short terms in order to make sense to the average ding dong.

Last year fake news told me that chemtrails are a government plot, trump had a chance of winning the nomination, and a secret army of lizard people runs about 2/3rds of our world government(no reason why). Modern Media told me that airplanes leave vapor trails, trump has no way to win because he will never win more than one or two states, and that only 1/3rd of our world government is operated by lizard people.

Then around Christmas, fake news told me that chemtrails are a government plot, trump had a really narrow chance of winning the nomination, and a secret army of lizard people runs about 2/3rds of our world government(no reason why). Modern Media told me that airplanes leave vapor trails, Trump, even if he got the nomination, would never pull any swing states, and that only 1/3rd of our world government is operated by lizard people.

Then a month before the election, fake news told me that chemtrails are a government plot run by Hillary Clinton, Trump was going to win because he was up 9 points in Ohio, and a secret army of lizard people runs about 2/3rds of our world government on behalf of the Democratic Party. Modern Media told me that airplanes leave Russian Mind Chemicals to make you vote for Donald,  that 1/3rd of our population is operated by lizard people who plan to vote Trump, and that Ohio never really mattered in Presidential Elections.

Now that is a bunch of baloney. Do you know how embarrassing it is to go to Info Wars on election night because they are actually more credible than CNN?

The ‘fake news sites’ are not an indicator of how poor research is, they are the high tide mark of places legacy media has now become less credible than.

It’s like the National Inquirer in that movie Men in Black, where Tommy Lee Jones says, “yeah they get it right every now and then.” That’s where we are at.  Fake News has not gotten better, it is that so many traditional sources have gotten it wrong so spectacularly and so often that these jokers are actually more accurate. Don’t tell me they are fake news, I know they are fake news, and I am going to keep going to them where at least the garbage is totally noticeable from a distance while you up your game to the point I can trust you again.
