#GoldenShowerGate: 4Chan Trolls the CIA with Fake Intel, Mainstream Media Publishes Fake News About Trump with Prostitutes and Pee

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(Before It's News)

You can really tell the next four years are going to be fever dream insane.

So this happened.

#GoldenShowerGate is trending on Twitter after users on 4Chan trolled the CIA with fake intel that ended up in our fake mainstream media.

It’s being reported all over the place that a 35-page dossier of “intel” from an unnamed supposedly British intelligence source came out discussing Trump in compromising sexual situations involving prostitutes and pee and that Russia knew about it and didn’t release the info.

This has been publicized to the point that both Trump and Moscow have officially responded.

That’s what’s going on. That’s a thing that is actually happening in America right now. (Probably to distract everyone from Tillerson’s horrifying Secretary of State confirmation hearing, but I digress…)

BuzzFeed ran with it first. The outlet obviously knew they were likely reporting totally fake news and hedged themselves with their Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith sending this message out:

But you know it must be bad when even CNN wouldn’t verify that the dossier was real, stating:

But while CNN and other outlets did not publish specific details from the memos because they could not be independently verified, BuzzFeed published the memos in full.

However, as it turns out…

Yep.

This is apparently how it went down:

Other journos weighed in on BuzzFeed’s decision to break this “story”…

John Podhoretz of the New York Post wrote that BuzzFeed took fake news to a whole new level:

“Readers of this newspaper know well not to include me among Trump’s supporters. But the scurrilousness of what BuzzFeed has done here is so beyond the bounds of what is even remotely acceptable it should compel even those most outraged by Trump’s political excesses to come to his defense and to the defense of a few other people mentioned in these papers whose names are also dragged through the mud.

There is literally no evidence on offer in these memos or from BuzzFeed that any single sentence in these documents is factual or true. What’s more, we know most major news organizations in America had seen them and despite their well-known institutional antipathy toward Trump, had chosen not to publish them or even make reference to them after efforts to substantiate their charges had failed.”

He also made this salient point:

I’ve been a newspaper and magazine editor for 31 years, and like many in my profession, have had occasion over the course of four decades to work with people linked to intelligence agencies both domestic and foreign when they are retailing stories injurious to one or another politician or cause.

In my experience, there is no source of whom you need to be more skeptical, and whose information you need to verify to the letter before you can even begin to think of publishing it, than an “intelligence” source.

Just… how sad is this?

Regardless, the hashtags #GoldenShowerGate and #PEEOTUS are trending on Twitter, and even celebs are Tweeting about it.

Wonder how many more “gates” like #GoldenShowerGate we’re going to see in the next four years. The man isn’t even sworn in yet…

Still. Isn’t this reminiscent of the FBI’s plot to smear Martin Luther King Jr. with salacious sexual scandals that were completely made up?

Kind of creepy considering this other fake news recently reported about Trump.
