“Fake News” is a problem, really?

The 7 Worst Examples of Fake News From the Mainstream Media

Hillary Clinton spoke out against “Fake News” after her election loss, blaming it in part for her failure to be elected.

Who would have ever realized that the woman who lied about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia, receiving classified emails on her private server and about a million other things cared so much about honesty?

The story lists seven examples of stories by the liberal media and show the lack of responsible journalism and honest reporting at work.

What these examples can’t show is the personal damage, the numbers of lives lost and the security of our country damaged by these and so many other biased, partisan stories and targeted ‘hit’ pieces.

From the ‘Flushing the Koran’ lie to the ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ fantasy; real people suffered and died because of the media’s desire to damage the military, the police, conservatives and whites.  (Bonus points if one story hits all of the above!)

The case of George Zimmerman is, in my opinion, the worst.  This man’s life was threatened by a worthless, violent thug, but it was destroyed, deliberately, by the media.

3) NBC And CNN Lying About The George Zimmerman Tape: “We mentioned the other day how during a Today Show segment NBC had edited the 911 phone call of George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin. The edited version made him sound like a racial profiler.

Here’s the transcript of the audio NBC played:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Here’s the actual transcript:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.

That’s no accident or ‘Editing for Clarity’.  That’s character assassination, that’s evil.
