THE ASSAULT OF TRUTH IS ON THE ORIGINAL
by Cody Robert Judy, ©2017
(Jan. 17, 2017) — Why have we been inundated with the “Fake News” Phenomenon? It seems almost strange based upon the consequences of the 2016 Election. All the predictions, polls, and pundit prophesies were stacked in on a Big Win for Hillary Clinton balanced with heels of cheep gas and the neo-fascist populism of Barack Obama. Donald Trump pulled off what Politico and in NFL Terms would be considered the Biggest Upset in World History. The result was a shaking of not so much Fake News, but of the Main Stream News not having the power it once did, and in the vacuum trying to make some sense or label the interception of the public trust that won the Electoral College Super Bowl.
Even interpretations from Nostradamus got in on the action – [The Masculine woman will exert herself to the north She will annoy nearly all of Europe and the rest of the world Two failures will put her in such an imbalance That both life and death will strengthen eastern Europe] The interpreter figured Hillary Clinton as the “Masculine Women,” where perhaps Lady Liberty may have provided a broader, safer stroke of the prediction.
I thought it would be interesting to find out exactly what “Fake News” constituted before I went any further. A story by Amol Rajan authored at the BBC News was intriguing with three types or categories that you may not have even expected. I found them satisfying especially given the Fake News Category labeled the third kind which I find fits best for those who like to deny Obama’s Long Form Birth Certificate is not an original constantly withstanding the three Press Conferences and Reports of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse headed up by experienced detectives and show casing experts in forensic documents that the mainstream news seems unable and unwilling to digest and report.
BBC News entitled Fake News: Too important to ignore
[Nor am I under any obligation to be impartial about truth, as against lies. The possibility of truth is a necessary condition for democracy.
Fake news is an assault on truth. Therefore it behoves all right-thinking journalists to combat fake news.
- First, false information deliberately circulated by those who have scant regard for the truth but hope to advance particular (often extreme) political causes and make money out of online traffic.
- Second, false information that is circulated by journalists who do not realize it is false.
- The third kind of fake news isn’t really fake at all. It’s simply news that some people don’t like to acknowledge, and wish to silence]
