    So How Fake Is Fake News?

    The MSM Published 500,000-Plus Stories About Russia Collusion
    .
    Mueller's work is done, Trump's been vindicated — yet some outlets still want readers to take them seriously?
    .
    Now that we know the Trump-Russia “collusion” story the media have been obsessed with for two years was all a hoax, exactly how many stories did they put out about it?
    .
    Over half a million.
    .
    Axios reports that since May 2017, exactly 533,074 web articles have been published about Russia and Trump-Mueller, which in turn have generated “245 million interactions — including likes, comments and shares — on Twitter and Facebook.”
    .
    Axios determined these findings by compiling data from social media analytics company NewsWhip.
    .
    Think about it. The same liberal mainstream media that constantly mock conservative news as not credible or unreliable have now published over 500,000 stories that have generated nearly 250 million social media interactions — and they still think we should take them seriously?
    .
    The mainstream media have proven themselves to be the biggest conspiracy theorists out there.
    .
    How about TV time? It gets worse, though, in our view.
    .
    The Media Research Center (MRC) said that major media gave 2,284 minutes of coverage to the Russia probe.
    .
    “From January 20, 2017 (Inauguration Day) through March 21, 2019 (the last night before special counsel Robert Mueller sent his report to the attorney general), the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts produced a combined 2,284 minutes of ‘collusion’ coverage, most of it (1,909 minutes) following Mueller’s appointment on May 17, 2017,” MRC reports (emphasis theirs).
    .

    From January 20, 2017 (Inauguration Day) through March 21, 2019 (the last night before special counsel Robert Mueller sent his report to the Attorney General), the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts
    .
    “That’s an average of roughly three minutes a night, every night, for an astonishing 791 days — a level of coverage normally associated only with a major war or a presidential election,” MRC notes.
    .
    Astonishing indeed. Shameful, too.
    .
    The fake news media won’t stop. As if that weren’t bad enough, fake news outlets like CNN are still camped outside Robert Mueller’s office.
    .
    When will these reporters go away?
    .
    This is a new low for the media from which they might never recover.
    .
    Conservative news is needed more than ever to inform readers based on fact — and not partisan witch hunts.
    .
    And who knows what the next media Trump witch hunt will be.

    CNN Misses Top 25 as MSNBC’s Top Hitters See Double Digit Ratings Dive
    .
    MSNBC’s top three shows all suffered a double digit ratings drop in the wake of the Mueller Report’s exposure of the Russia Collusion Hoax.
    .
    Meanwhile, hapless CNN (a far-left fake news network that encourages political violence against the right), failed to place even a single one of its show in the top 25.
    .
    Seven Fox News hours and three MSNBC hours comprised April’s top ten cable news shows. Per TV Newser, here is top ten with the average number of total viewers and how those numbers compare to April of last year:
    .
    Hannity: 3,086,000 / -5%
    Tucker Carlson Tonight: 2,834,000 / +9%
    The Rachel Maddow Show: 2,630,000/ -13%
    The Ingraham Angle: 2,455,000 / -2%
    The Five: 2,398,000 / +10%
    The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell: 2,081,000/ -10%
    Special Report with Bret Baier: 2,043,000 / -8%
    The Story with Martha MacCallum: 1,811,000 / -8%
    America’s Newsroom: 1,609,000 / -1%
    All in with Chris Hayes: 1,547,000 / -20%
    .
    As you can see, some Fox News shows were down a bit (Hannity down five percent, Ingraham down two percent) and some were up (Tucker up nine percent, The Five up ten percent), but all three of MSNBC’s top shows saw a double digit dive.
    .
    Rachel Maddow is down a pretty serious 13 percent in total viewers, but she also nosedived 33 percent in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, more than any other show in the top ten … except for Lawrence O’Donnell, who sank 33 percent in the demo and ten percent in total viewers.
    .
    Chris Hayes lost a full fifth of his total viewing audiences and didn’t even make the top ten in demo viewers, so there is no number to compare to last year.
    .
    Until the Mueller Report hit, Maddow was in a death match with Hannity for the top spot in cable news. He almost always won, but the possibility existed she could overtake him. In fact, MSNBC was romantically close to snatching the overall crown from Fox.
    .
    Those possibilities have all since vanished.
    .
    For a whole host of reasons, MSNBC is faring much better than CNN, which lost a full quarter of its already minuscule audience last month. And now we know that CNN could not even place one show in the top 25, even though it is only competing against two other outlets.
    .
    CNN’s top rated show was Chris Cuomo’s hour, which came in at number 26 and averaged only 887,000 viewers. Hannity nearly quadrupled Fredo. How humiliating.
    .
    Jake Tapper’s average total viewers collapsed to just 732,000, and he is supposed to be the lead-off hitter into CNN’s primetime line-up. What a fall.
    .
    CNN chief Jeff Zucker is supposed to be a genius at producing morning shows. Well, no more. CNN’s terrible morning show New Day averaged only 452,000 viewers, less than a third of Fox and Friends’ 1.46 million.
    .
    MSNBC deserves credit for being openly left-wing. Unlike CNN, MSNBC puts on the uniform and steps into the arena. That does not, though, alter the fact that for two years MSNBC deliberately misled its audience with the Russia Collusion Hoax, that for two years MSNBC assured and reassured its left-leaning audience President Trump’s arrest and impeachment were imminent.
    .
    You can’t do that, you can’t get people’s hopes up with fevered lies and hope they will all still tune in.
    .
    All this stupid kabuki surrounding Attorney General Bill Barr and Dirty Cop Robert Mueller’s crybaby letter is basically the last stand of the Russia Collusion Hoaxers, the last gasp to set the hook in Trump. But as we saw from Barr’s testimony Tuesday, it’s all for show, all nonsense, just a bunch of sore losers elevating the art of sore-losering to a whole new level primarily to try and tie Trump up in knots and sucker Maddow and Company’s suckers once again.
    .
    Nevertheless, MSNBC’s rating dive is no small thing. The network betrayed its audience and is paying for it.

    When will these reporters go away?
    Sorry, reporters?

    This is a new low for the media from which they might never recover.
    It's not a new low if you know history. A recent low perhaps.

    Conservative news is needed more than ever to inform readers based on fact — and not partisan witch hunts.
    Unbiased news is needed. Fox comes close but what they really have is both lefties and righties tainting it. If you listen carefully you can tell which is which.

    You can do real news in less than an hour a day. The other 23 1/2 hours is opinion and filler.

    And who knows what the next media Trump witch hunt will be.
    Tax returns.

    What's really important here is not the minutiae of whatever "story" they might have. It's that the majority of our alleged news media has become once again a tool for a political ideology. Be it the USSR, the Third Reich, Venezuela, Cuba, China or whatever, this is how thugs try to take power.

    Our forefathers saw the need for 2A for a reason. I don't advocate violence, but you have to know why jerks like Swalwell want your guns. They could be your last line of defense. I prefer not to reach that line, so keeping our constitution intact is the goal I have. It's better to never have to use the force you have. Our current president talks about that. I agree.

    CNN Buries Truth As Poll Shows Overwhelming Support For Obama Investigation
    .
    CNN, the far left ‘news’ outlet that has been caught in a number of lies over the past few years, conducted a poll concerning Americans’ opinion of the Obama administration’s actions against then-candidate Donald Trump.
    .
    The results were stunning, so the outlet buried the information.
    .
    Breitbart reported:
    .
    More than two-thirds of Americans want an investigation into the Justice Department’s handling of the Russia Collusion Hoax.
    .
    This is very bad news for Barack Obama, the corrupt Deep State, their minions in the establishment media, and Democrats.
    .
    According to an April 25-28 poll of 1,007 random adults taken for CNN, a full 69 percent “think Congress ought to investigate the origins of the Justice Department’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including 76% of Democrats, 69% of independents and 62% of Republicans.”
    .
    And the “origins” of that inquiry means the Obama Justice Department.
    .
    Naturally, CNN buried this inconvenient bombshell in its own report on its own poll.
    .
    What’s more, public opposition to the non-stop, Democrat-led investigations into President Trump is growing.
    .
    The people are sick and tired of a witch hunt that only serves to expose more democrat collusion, lies, and entrapment plots.
    .
    The outlet continued:
    .
    In the middle of March, only 38 percent of adults polled believed “Democrats in Congress are doing too much… to investigate Donald Trump.”

    Six weeks later, that number jumped to 44 percent.
    .
    Only 25 percent believe Democrats are doing too little, while 28 percent say the “right amount,” a drop of six points from last month.
    .
    The poll also shows that a mere 37 percent want to see Trump impeached while a clear majority, 59 percent, do not. Last September, that number was nearly tied with 47 percent wanting Trump removed from office while 48 percent did not.
    .
    The president’s overall job approval rating sits at 43 percent, up from 37 percent in January. This includes 46 percent of Independents approving of the president and a robust 86 percent of Republicans.
    .
    What’s important to keep in mind about this poll is that it is a random sample of adults (with a sampling error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points) is a polling method that almost always skews against Republicans, which is why a left-wing outlet like CNN would utilize it.
    .
    A more accurate poll screens for “likely” or “registered” voters.
    .
    A poll of random adults is really only useful in looking at trends, and this poll shows that the trends are almost all moving in Trump’s direction. Exceptions are that 48 percent believe President Trump obstructed justice, while 45 percent disagree. Fifty percent believe “things Trump has said publicly about the investigation have been mostly false.”
    .
    That 69 percent number, though, that is the real news here. What we have, even during these polarized times, is the unified belief the Department of Justice needs to be investigated, which is exactly what Attorney general Bill Barr and Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have promised to do, which is why the media are already working overtime to smear Bill Barr.
    .
    That 69 percent number is also a massive media fail.
    .
    For two years the media have been lying to the public hoping to convince us Obama’s Department of Justice did nothing wrong (they did), did not act improperly (they did), did not spy on the other party’s presidential campaign (they did), did not wiretap the other party’s campaign (they did)… But as you can see here, even Democrats haven’t been convinced by that fake news.
    .
    The truth is coming out. Democrats are the liars, cheaters, and colluders. Trying to shift that title to the president has failed.

    My Thoughts:
    .
    Of course, it doesn't fit in with their hysterical overreaction for the last 3 years with their Trump Derangement Syndrome that we see 24/7. They can’t admit that they have been wrong in so many ways, in regards to everything Trump.
    .
    PEOPLE GOTTA GET THE TRUTH AS TO WHAT BARACK ACTUALLY DID TO THIS COUNTRY!

    Liberal Outlet Gets FACT CHECKED While Interviewing at the Border
    .
    The illegal immigration issue is still alive and well, as LIberals, despite getting Trump to sign an executive order, are still complaining. Now they are saying his executive order is not enough.
    .
    But if they wanted a detailed plan they should complain to the Democrats who won’t come forward and sign off on any republican backed immigration bills. But MSNBC was looking to do another guilt Americans for their bad policy piece when they ran into a snag. They accidentally interviewed an informed family that wasn’t sympathetic to their cause.
    .
    The interview takes place about 60 to 70 miles from the border where the Cage family claims illegals are constantly walking through their property. The Cage Family are Cattle Ranchers that are Pro-Trump. MSNBC Host Kerry Sanders had the honor of interviewing this informed family. The Cage’s gave the reporter something he wasn’t looking for honest answers.
    .
    Kerry: “When you see parents and children separated, why do you support a policy that, appears to be, to many people, heartless?”
    .
    Presnell Cage: “Well, it’s basically the laws of our land. Trump I believe is going in the right direction, this I think would be a deterrent to keep this from happening. If people would adhere to the laws of our land, there wouldn’t be a problem right now.”
    .
    Kerry switched over to the Mother Cage, Stephanie, hoping to get an answer that better fit the narrative. As you can see he was loading that question with plenty of cues to direct her answer.
    .
    Kerry: “Stephanie you are a mother, a grandmother of seven. How do you react when you see that the families are being split apart? We’ve heard what we believe to be the audio of children crying for their parents.”
    .
    Stephanie Cage: “Of course it is very upsetting, but I am as equally upset with the parents for exposing their children to the dangers of smuggling their children across the border.”
    .
    Kerry seeing that the interview was getting away from him, tried to appeal to their sympathetic side but they were not having it.
    .
    You can tell Kerry Sanders was not expecting that. He was counting on the ranchers to feel angry because that is what the MSM has been selling. If MSNBC would report like this more often it might even become watchable. This has to be the best interview I have seen from them in a while.
    .

    My Thoughts:
    .
    As the MSM, CNN & MSNBC try to push their misinformation on the border crisis; it’s the real people who live there that are the ones who really know what is going on down there.
    .
