Yep, sounds Or-Whellian.

Unilever threatens to pull ads from FB and Google unless they clamp down on the fake news. Seems to me they ought to broaden the threat to Fox “News”.

Journalists lashed out at a White House spokesman on Saturday after the aide to President Trump claimed that news media and Democrats have caused more "chaos" than Russia.

White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley made the comments during an interview on Fox News while responding to special counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of Russian nationals for meddling in the 2016 election.

"There are two groups that have created chaos more than the Russians and that’s the Democrats and the mainstream media,” Gidley asserted on Fox News.

"[They] continued to push this lie on the American people for more than a year, and frankly Americans should be outraged by that."

So, fellow American citizens have done more damage than a now-indicted Russia and Trump lying 5-6 times a day while ignoring Russian threats to our country. Who knew (other than Whell, of course)?

He's right, we should be outraged, and I am. At his filth-spewing, deceptive mouth.

Well, yeah. And here's more evidence to that effect:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.d3fd16c304af

For example:

It was very strange when your media started to look into the groups. It was almost like a competition, you know. “We found out that this group was operated by Russians!” but then you’d look at this group and you’d find it only had 100 members. For some time, it looked a lot like your colleagues were just going after facts and not really analyzing it.

Also:

They organized anti-Trump rallies also. Yes, they were active against Hillary [Clinton], but they were not always pro-Trump. They were also active after the election. The story about the Black Fist movement — fake movement self-defense classes for black people — they started this story in 2017, after Trump was elected.

In other words, the story about Russian meddling took on a life of its own in the news media to support a narrative, and lacked any analysis. Facts that didn't support the narrative were downplayed or not reported. Narrative, rather than facts, become the news. And fake news is born.
