Fake News

Trump accuses the traditional news outlets: NBC (National Broadcasting Corporation), CNN (Cable News Network), CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), ABC (American Broadcasting Corporation) of producing fake news. But their news consists mainly of video of Trump and his surrogates speaking, interviews with white house staff, and Trump’s tweets, which anyone can verify. Just how do they pull off fake news? showing Trump impersonators delivering fake speeches? In contrast, Breitbart makes up the news without sources and without backing video.

Sometimes the media air leaks, labeling them as anonymously sourced. Trump labels these simultaneously as leaks and as fake news made up out of whole cloth. He can’t have it both ways.

Trump accuses all mainstream media of broadcasting fake news all the time. He never gives an example. He never offers evidence any particular news story is made up. The closest he comes is claiming the spin on some particular story is not positive enough to satisfy his sensitive ego. Trump loves to claim the Russia scandal is fake news even though there are four non-partisan official investigations underway. He so astoundingly confident in his ability to bamboozle his base.
