This seemed as good a place as any to drop this.

Moronic rightwing Louisiana state legislator cites a satirical article in the Daily Currant as real.

Fox News accidentally displays graphic showing it is least trusted cable network

https://www.theguardian.com/media/20...-cable-network

Fox “News” accidentally tells the truth for once. Hilarious.

New York Times editor says Trump attacks on press are out of control

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...t-donald-trump

Baquet said: “I think the press will keep doing what it does, but … if [Trump] creates a culture where Fox & Friends and Jesse Watters are regarded as serious journalism, and the New York Times and the Washington Post are not, he will have done longstanding, harmful effect on the country.

“It’s out of control. It’s out of control and his advisers should tell him to stop, because it’s actually affecting the civic life and debate of the country.

“When I first heard it, I thought, OK, a year ago, it felt like an exaggerated version of what we’ve heard from presidents forever. But it’s out of control.”



Most of us here understand just how out of control Donny is. Sadly, 30% of the country still believe every word the idiot spouts. Like Whell, they have no understanding of the First Amendment.

Ironic that it is the First Amendment that lets media organizations like Fox get away promoting Fake News. Wonder if a class action lawsuit can or will ever be brought against them.

Led by Fox “News”, pro-Trump media fuels false narrative to accuse Facebook of censorship

http://money.cnn.com/2018/04/15/medi...ews/index.html

Whell and his fellow wingnuts swallow the lies without blinking.

Yep, the Post wins 2 Pulitzer Prizes for reporting on Alabama election, Russian interference.

Why didn't Fox get one for its reporting on the Seth Rich murder (for which they're being sued)?

Nice coincidence that this occurs on the day we learn the Sean Hannity, Trump cheerleader #1, is revealed to be a client of Trump's fixer.

Great reporting requires patience, grit and a willingness to follow a story wherever it leads, whether Alabama or Moscow. Proud of @washingtonpost #Pulitzer winners! And big congrats to the @nytimes, as well! #DemocracyDiesInDarkness


...or the Oval Office. Up yours, Donny! — Bezos

Mr. Fake News (Whell) is eerily quite on this thread.

WaPo reporters bagged two Pulitzer awards. WaPo can sure fake it out with the best, not bad for a two bit rag.
