Last month my brother and I did a periscope on the Ides of March relating the significance of the Ides of March back in the days of Ceasar and after his assassination. We talked about how the Ides was a celebration and in the Age of Trump, how he is making the Ides great again. We talked about the good news of this administration that MSM will not cover.
We are doing it again on the Ides of April or rather a couple of days before. The Ides doesn't always fall on the 15th. In April it is on the 13th. We will be doing our periscope tomorrow around 7:00 PM.
We will be discussing some of the great news that is happening under the Trump administration but also some issues that have been around it seems at least as long as the MSM has been around...like fake news...that coincide with the Ides of April.
While Deep State is once again trying to get us into another war in the Midde East, it would be wise to make yourself familiar with how fake the news is and how long it has been fake.
Most of you know about Walter Duranty and his Pulitzer Prize for his propaganda regarding widespread famine in the USSR and more notable his denial of genocide in the Ukraine.
1932 he won that award. The New York Times continues to "correct" and "update" their fake news today meanwhile all the big tech companies are targeting alternative media and censoring them when they tend to be the ones to call out MSM fake news and often the reasons the MSM has to "correct" their false stories. Great scam they have going on!
How many of you have ever hear of Janet Cooke? The Washington Post has their own Pultizer Prize for propaganda story. “Jimmy’s World” A heart wrenching story about an 8 year old addicted to heroin. The only problem is the entire story was made up.
"Jimmy is 8 years old and a third-generation heroin addict, a precocious little boy with sandy hair, velvety brown eyes and needle marks freckling the baby-smooth skin of his thin brown arms.
"He nestles in a large, beige reclining chair in the living room of his comfortably furnished home in Southeast Washington. There is an almost cherubic expression on his small, round face as he talks about life — clothes, money, the Baltimore Orioles and heroin. He has been an addict since the age of 5.
"His hands are clasped behind his head, fancy running shoes adorn his feet, and a striped Izod T-shirt hangs over his thin frame. 'Bad, ain't it,' he boasts to a reporter visiting recently. 'I got me six of these.'"
FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE
She was awarded the Pulitzer Prize on the Ides of April (13th). Two days later it was withdrawn. Just like with the fake news now, they printed 1st and asked questions later.
The person who submitted her work was the infamous Bow Woodward of Watergate fame.He was the assistant managing editor for WaPo. When reading about how badly this story was done, you wonder how one of the most reputable journalists in America could have missed the fact that the whole story was a lie.
How did the story begin to unravel? She had lied about her college education saying she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Vassar College. Officials from Vassar college called Ben Bradlee, the editor of the Washington Post, and told him she had only attended their college her freshman year and then graduated from Toledo University. Oh what a mighty web we weave....
The story isn't just about Janet Cooke and her fraudulent Pulitzer but about a a broader systemic failure of vetting stories before they go to print, much less before they are submitted for awards.
Fake News is nothing new. It is still going on today. See today's "correction" on the big breaking news story about the unlawful raid of POTUS attorney's office. Yesterday the big news is that the unlawful raid was approved by a Trump appointed attorney at the SDNY. Today we learn this attorney was recused from the Michael Cohen investigation and that it was actually an Obama appointee who approved of the raid that will have wide ramification for the state of attorney client privilege. Quite the "correction"....
Sooner or later we are going to have to deal with the fact that this fake news problems is done with intention whether it be fake news by omission or fake news by misinformation. It's a huge problem and Lewis and I will be talking about this tomorrow.....see you then!
Sam here below says hello and highly recommends you tune into tomorrow!
