Fake News

This is a topic that gets brought up plenty. it needs a thread.

Plenty of fake news out there. Plenty of dishonest reporters as well.

Anyway, I will start with the Der Spiegel writer Claas Relotius who either resigned or was fired for fake news. This guy made shit up for years. He won awards. Lots of them. He wrote an article about a Midwestern town in the wake of the Trump victory. Well, you can guess the result, but not the extent of the fiction.

i posted a few links

Wall Street Journal article

This article is a rebuttal from local citizenry.

Spectator article

The man is just following in the footsteps of MSNBC's Mike Barnicle and The Boston Globe. Barnicle take a back seat to nobody when it comes to being expert in Fake News. That's why he has such an important spot on MSNBC.

Barnicle is a godfather of Fake News.

No they won't.

Trump ended the Timber Sycamore program, which is where they were getting their money, weapons, training, and supplies from. All he has to do now is get out and let the Russians and Syrians finish them off. Without US backing, they're as good as dead. That's why the White Helmets evacuation plan went into effect.
