Most Americans don't believe the news media

Congratulations, boneheads.

You had the Most Respected Press in the World, but you blew your credibility propping up Obama the Inept and trying to elect Hillary president

Most America now believes you peddle Fake News.

And they are right. You do.

From The Hill:
Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.
According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media.
That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.
“Much of the media is now just another part of the partisan divide in the country with Republicans not trusting the ‘mainstream’ media and Democrats seeing them as reflecting their beliefs,” said Harvard-Harris co-director Mark Penn. “Every major institution from the presidency to the courts is now seen as operating in a partisan fashion in one direction or the other.”
And guess what? The people are absolutely correct.

The media lies.

Take for instance this week's lie that Ivanka was shaking down sultans to donate to a non-existent Ivanka Fund. Reporters from CNN and other news outlets spread this lie across Twitter.

Why?

Because they are a bunch of Marxist monkeys who can lie without ever being held accountable by their bosses.

Daniel Payne at the Federalist just cataloged "13 More Major Fake News Stories In Just Five Months Of Trump’s Presidency":

They range from the mildly amusing:
On February 1 the U.K. Daily Mail reported that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch had “founded and led a student group” known as the “Fascism Forever Club” in high school. The story made waves at news websites and on social media: U.S. News and World Report, The Nation, AOL, the AV Club, Salon, and Vice all fell for it, while writers and media personalities such as Bill Maher, Heer, Gersh Kuntzman, Millhiser, and Olbermann all eagerly and credulously tweeted about it.
As it turns out, it wasn’t true at all: Gorsuch had simply included the club as a joke in his yearbook entry. Much of the media couldn’t simply wait to confirm this, however, leading to yet another hysterical fake news media cycle.
To the why-do-we-allow-this?
Not to be outdone by the fake beer party hysteria, the Internet feminist machine decided to do the hysterics one better. On May 4, the feminist group Ultraviolet Action tweeted out a graphic that claimed the AHCA “made being a rape survivor a preexisting condition.” Media outlets ran with this claim, with astronomical social media shares quickly following: Mic (shared a staggering 248,000 times on Facebook), New York Magazine (13,000 shares), CNN (24,000 shares) and HuffPost (nearly 40,000 shares), among many others. The coverage was sensational, outrageous and terrifying.
It was also wrong. The Washington Post gave the claim four Pinocchios: “[T]his claim relies on so many factors — including unknown decisions by a handful of states and insurance companies — that this talking point becomes almost meaningless.” It was a falsehood from the start, but that didn’t stop prominent media outlets from running with it. Just another fake news event in the Age of Trump.
This is indeed the Age of Trump, and it will not end well for the News Fakers at CNN and elsewhere.

Remember what Hulk Hogan did to Gawker with Peter Thiel's money.

Thiel is a Trump supporter.





On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  1. The lying lap dogs of the media have peed and pooped in their pool, which is why so many of us won't go anywhere near there any more.

  2. Why do the owners of these outlets, and they can be named as human beings on one sheet of paper,allow this to happen? That is the only question of real interest.

    1. Because they're leftist liberal progressive Democrats, and they're beholden.

  5. Those numb nuts don't peddle Fake News, they pedal it.

    There's two flat tires, the handlebars are wobbling, and the bike has commenced to disintegrating beneath them.

    They need some Tender Loving Editorial Care from someone who's chucked and ducked a manual typewriter or three in his day.

    Front and Center, Don.

    P.S. The 24 hour wait period ... I'm calling it "The Surber Day" ... has joined the Stanislavsky Moment and the Month of Sundays in my lexicon.

  6. More and more of Drudge's links are to British newspapers - and yes, by and large, those guys keep the editorializing out, which is nice. You'd think our guys would get the message. Nah. I blame Barack, who did an awful lot of doubling down on his abject failures. Well, the Titanic was once considered unsinkable. We know how that turned out.

  7. How long has it been since we had "the Most Respected Press in the World"? Seventeen or more years, by my calculation.

  8. When your top stories are Trump getting two scoops of ice cream while his staff gets only one or Melania flicking away Donald's hand in Israel you are at the level of the National Enquirer (or lower!). They truly are the propaganda arm of the Dimocrat Party. Goebbels smiles. Journalistic integrity has become an oxymoron. GOC
