Fake News

CBS News uses a picture from a Trump rally to illustrate a Biden rally. Did they think no one would notice the signs, hats, and so on?

Of course, when you look at the pictures from the actual Biden rally, it's understandable. The media are desperate.

Snopes covers for convicted terrorist on BLM-linked fundraising org

Both Snopes and BLM just lost all credibility. Not that either had any credibility in my book to start with.

Fake Hate

Daily WireThe letter Lopez claimed he received read, in part: “Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other f****** Mexicans in the area!” The letter ends by stating, “Sincerely, America!”

Lopez previously ran for a commissioner seat in Umatilla County but lost in the primary. He reported the letter to Hermiston Police, who investigated Lopez’s claims and determined that, yet again, someone who publicly claimed to be the victim of a hate crime was not, in fact, a victim.

KEPR-TV News reported Tuesday that police determined Lopez sent the letter to himself and that Lopez verbally and in a written statement admitted to fabricating the letter.

At this point I'm just keeping track of these so I can explain why my default position is to disbelieve claims of racism until proven otherwise.

An odd twist on Fake Hate

Fake Hate usually involves someone faking an incident of racism, supposedly for the purpose of fighting racism (and, without admitting it, feeding their narcissism and desire for attention). But there is another type of fake hate, apparently.

It appears someone is hiring actors to portray armed and militant Black Panthers.

Fake News

Star TribuneA photographer at the house Thursday morning appeared to stage a shot in the officer’s driveway by encouraging two people to spray “Kill Pig Cops” on the garage door, according to Jennifer Kennetz of St. Paul. She said the woman claimed to be a magazine photographer and tried to persuade Kennetz and others to pose for her near the home.

Kennetz said she later saw the photographer persuade a young couple to spray paint the garage door while recording it with her cellphone. Police confiscated the phone, Kennetz said, and an Oakdale police spokeswoman confirmed the incident was under investigation.

The media are not just lying to you, they are literally inciting people to violence. And then trying to lie to you about the violence not happening.

So just to be clear in how I characterize this: The reporter standing in front of a burning building describes it as "mostly a protest, not generally speaking unruly" while different reporters are egging people on to vandalize police buildings or bring pitchforks and torches to a Trump fundraiser.

Also, reality check: when you burn down someone's home or business, riot in their city, loot the stores they shop in, and then they hate you... that's not racism. That's cause and effect based on your actions.

NYTimes claiming Russians hacked Burisma

This is going to be their excuse for any embarrassing data about the Biden corruption. They will just claim it was faked by the Russians to interfere with the 2020 election. Never mind that Biden's on video bragging about shutting down investigations, it's all going to be called fake news.

About that media bias that doesn't exist...

ABC News tries to pass off Knob Creek machine gun shoot video as real combat footage from Syria.

UPDATE: The talking head twice uses the uncomfortable terminology "appears to show" when describing the Knob Creek video as depicting the Turkish assault. That sounds to me like he knows it doesn't even as he airs the video.

Caravan filled with men who are not seeking asylum

Ace of Spades"From what we've seen, the majority are actually men and some of these men have not articulated that need for asylum. Instead, they have talked about going to the United States for a better life and to find work," Schwartz added.

It's hard to fake the news when you're reporting live from the scene and there's video. It's also hard to fake the news when people have internet access to your archives.

Fake News

PJMediaSen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked if the companies were addressing "micro targeting to discourage voting," what he called "one of the most powerful tools in the propaganda arsenal" that has "certainly been used in the past with the Russians to discourage minority Americans from voting."

"So what are you doing to prohibit this micro targeting?" Wyden said. "I mean, what about ads that share false information about the date of the election or the location of a polling place or ads that tell people they can vote with a text message from their phone."

We've read about what "the Russians" did with their Facebook ads. It wasn't this. This is just Dem Senator Ron Wyden saying something to rile up his minority constituencies.

To be sure, there are jokes about that sort of thing all the time. They are obviously jokes and are not microtargeted to anyone, unless "anyone in earshot" counts as microtargeting.

But that is not what the Russians did, and what the Russians did did not change the outcome of the election, because it was absurdly ineffectual.

PJMedia (quoting Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey)"We didn't have enough communication going out in terms of what was seen and what was tweeted, and what people are falling in to," the Twitter boss elaborated. "...We need to meet people where they are, and if we determine that people are subject to any falsehoods or any manipulation of any sort, we do need to provide them the full context of that. And this is an area of improvement for us and something that we're going to be diligent to fix."

Well, I fixed the falsehoods in this Congressional hearing for you. Will you please direct everyone to my website so they can get the full context?

More seriously, it seems Twitter (along with the other social media giants) has decided to take a more... editorial stance on the content from its users. That stance invalidates the legal protections associated with being a common carrier type platform.
