The Left’s “Fake News List” is FAKE

(Before It's News)

http://google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?tpl=safari&site=theblacksphere.net&hl=en-us Anyone surprised to learn that Breitbart is considered “fake” news by Leftists? Check out who else is on the fake news list.

Once the door is opened for the government to determine what is real news and what is “fake” news, that door can never be closed. To draw up a fake news list is a PRAVDA-like action and must be put to an end.  This Assistant Professor, whose list is on a Google Doc, states that she gets her news from “mainstream, corporate owned sources (The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes) as well as National Public Radio,”  

NYT?  NPR?  Those are her trusted sources?  That should make us all feel secure and trust her every word. 

One of her criteria for putting a site on the fake news list is “If the story makes you REALLY ANGRY”. Um, what if a story is true and makes you REALLY ANGRY?  These days, that is not such an odd thing.

According to The Daily Caller,

Among the sites listed by Merrimack Assistant Professor Melissa Zimdars are Breitbart, Independent Journal Review (IJR) and The Blaze. Articles from those outlets may require additional scrutiny, but they still produce authentic news reports. Even so, Zimdars includes them alongside objectively fake news websites like abcnews.com.co and MegynKelly.us.

The list circulated widely on social media while Facebook executives discuss whether they should become censors by banning “fake news”.

A glaring omission on the fake news list is that of the Huffington Post. So we list Breitbart as fake but Huff-Po remains completely legit?  Isn’t Huff-Po the rag that said they did not take Trump’s candidacy seriously, and therefore they were putting all Trump stories in the entertainment section ?  Question for the Huff-Po: How did that work out ?

There was an editor’s note on every Trump story that had been used by the Huffington Post for much of Trump’s presidential campaign.  It states:

“Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S”

Huff-Po may as well declared that “EVERYONE WE DON’T LIKE IS LITERALLY HITLER!!!” as they stomped into their cute little play-house. Well, Trump Huffed and he Puffed and he blew their house down.

So the left’s answer? This insane fake news list.

Brietbart News is naturally ticked off about all this:

President Barack Obama attacked “fake news” during the election, and irate Hillary Clinton supporters have blamed Facebook for costing her the election by allowing users to share information from “fake news” sites.

As Breitbart News’ Chriss Street reported this week, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has vigorously denied that Facebook cost Clinton the election.

Some fear the attempt to paint a broad range of legitimate websites as “fake news” indicates a desire to censor free speech.

Suggestion to Breitbart:   Publish a list of fake educators and educational institutions.

It was the Alt-Right media that made the difference this time – not FOX, or any other cable network, or any author of fake news sites.  It was the Alt-Right media and the vast right wing conspirators,  otherwise known as patriots, who spread the truth throughout the nation, mainly via internet.  Now the right man will soon be in office, thanks to no small degree to sites like Breitbart.

We all know that Trump’s real margin of victory had to far exceed the margin of fraud. Or as one conservative commentator said, “beyond the margin of lawyer”.  Under Trump’s choice for DOJ, states will now start the process of cleaning up the voter rolls, implementing voter ID, etc. without Federal interference.

We believe Facebook and Twitter need some competition.  I am currently in Facebook Jail for sharing The Black Sphere blog posts on conservative groups I belong to – I guess, but I’m not sure since FB metes out the punishment without ever explaining what the crime actually is. I currently can’t post to any of my Groups, so I assume the crime has something to do with posting to Groups.

I’m looking into a replacement for Twitter called Gab. It is still in Beta but looks promising.

And If you are tired of Facebook censorship, Join the Tea Party Community!  It’s time we made a mass Facebook exodus.
