… show me how it’s being done.
Since there seems to be a suprising amount of support for Trump here, and distrust for the mainstream media, maybe someone can help me understand this. (I have asked about this in a number of forums in the past 2 years but never gotten a satisfactory answer.)
First: I’m well aware that there are sloppy, unethical and stupid journalists. As in any field, there are people who should not be there. I am also aware that media bias exists (and has always existed), and that certain individual media outlets that have pretty obvious agendas.
What I don’t understand is the idea that “the mainstream media” is in the business of creating “fake news.” And by “fake,” I don’t mean biased, or spun, but fabricated, false narratives.
If this is happening, then how is it happening, logistically?
For the sake of argument, I will accept it as a “given” that the Washington Post, the New York Times, MSN, CNN, etc. etc. etc. are all lying about Trump.
I’m simply asking how these elaborate, detailed narratives are being created.
When I say I have never gotten a satisfactory answer, it’s been because people have provided examples of errors or bias (which isn’t “fake,”) or said, “MSN (or whichever) makes up something and they all go along like sheep.”
I’ve already provided the “given” that they are lying. I want to know HOW:
✓ Tens of thousands of journalists, at thousands of competing outlets worldwide;
✓ the AP wire;
✓ present and past WH staff;
✓ elected officials across the nation;
✓ the FBI and our justice system;
✓ Pew, Barna and Gallup;
✓ old friends, business partners and employees of Donald Trump;
✓ dozens of random women;
✓ world leaders (including our allies);
✓ citizens in other developed nations;
✓ and the majority of economists, historians, political scientists, scientists of all stripes, physicians, patient advocacy groups, urban planners, climatologists, environmentalists, military strategy experts, educators, etc etc etc…
… are collaborating in a massive stage show to destroy and discredit this President.
How are different journalists inventing these stories simultaneously and updating them dozens of times each day?
Are they interviewing sources that don’t exist? Fabricating transcripts? Falsifying video, audio, court documents on everything?
How is it that no one has veered from the script?
And who is WRITING the script? Because somebody has to be “in charge” of all this.
Show me how this Rube Goldberg machine works.
Take the question OUT of the realm of ideology or even Trump. Articulate this conspiracy, which makes the JFK Assassination look like a game of Candyland.
