Looks like a popular right-wing blogger named "Jenna Abrams" turned out to not actually exist. She is a fabrication of Russian propaganda artists.

[edit] Looks like even Faux News parroted the "antifascist revolution" fake news that was spreading in right-wing circles recently.

Remember when the president threatened to shoot down the ATT-Time Warner merger if CNN kept being critical of him?
http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer...ck-merger.html
The DoJ is now trying to pressure ATT into selling CNN (along with the rest of Turner Broadcasting) before they'll allow the merger.
https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/08/att-...ertain-dj.html
On a related note, the Sinclair-Tribune merger which would spread Sinclair's "must air" right-wing propaganda stories to even more households is still on track.
Funny how that works.

"Federal regulators rolled back decades-old rules on Thursday, making it far easier for media outlets to be bought and sold — potentially leading to more newspapers, radio stations and television broadcasters being owned by a handful of companies."
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.d4a2e035a53b

Maybe we'll get lucky and, after Net Neutrality dies in the next month or so, Comcast will move to protect its subsidiary MSNBC by blocking things like Fox News, etc.

Everyone will only be happy if by some miracle only the things that they hate get damaged. This hurts everyone.

I just want people to feel the consequences of their actions. This is what happens when you vote Republican.

That chucklefuck O'Keefe of "Project Veritas" (which is partially funded by the "Trump Foundation") has been busted trying to dupe The Washington Post into running a fake news story while fishing for quotes regarding opinions on what effects the story might have. It seems like it was an attempt to discredit WaPo and the accusations against Roy Moore. In the process, all they did was prove that WaPo is apparently good at vetting sources.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/inves...=.8a98f2a4b8c1
"In a series of interviews over two weeks, the woman shared a dramatic story about an alleged sexual relationship with Moore in 1992 that led to an abortion when she was 15. During the interviews, she repeatedly pressed Post reporters to give their opinions on the effects that her claims could have on Moore’s candidacy if she went public."
"'During the interviews, [Phillips] repeatedly pressed Post reporters to give their opinions on the effects that her claims could have on Moore’s candidacy if she went public.' [...]
'Phillips also repeatedly asked the reporter to guarantee her that Moore would lose the election if she came forward. [WaPo reporter Beth] Reinhard told her in a subsequent text message that she could not predict what the impact would be.'"
"Because of our customary journalistic rigor, we weren’t fooled."
The video interview with her is solid gold, though. I highly recommend watching it.

Welp. They'll have to learn that the rest of the liberal world is not as easy to embarrass as Planned Parenthood.

I think PP just didn't expect someone to be shitty enough to use hidden cameras and clever editing to push falsehoods.

Anyway, Faux News is refusing to aid this ad for some reason:

Faux News has been busted yet again, this time pushing the fake news that his signature in the yearbook of one of his victims was forged.
http://thehill.com/homenews/media/36...rgery-headline
Other right-wing outlets are still pushing it as fact.


This is interesting...

And now Fox is calling to purge the FBI of those who are investigating the president.
"There have been times in our history where corruption and lawlessness were so pervasive that examples had to be made. This is one of those times. I for one am tired of investigations, politicians posturing. Something more has to be done."

The Wall Street Journal published an anti-NN op-ed that was literally written by a Comcast attorney. They decided that wasn't important enough to mention along with it.

Reaching new levels of projection, Fox News accuses the ongoing FBI investigation of being a coup.

So when will we hold the right-wing media responsible for their actions?
The organizer of Unite the Right was a Daily Caller employee. Tucker Carlson's Daily Caller put out a video celebrating and encouraging the running down of liberal protesters with cars. A "lone wolf" then murdered a woman in a terrorist attack. Fox News pushed those edited Project Veritas videos claiming that Planned Parenthood was selling baby parts for cash, and a "lone wolf" guy went and shot up a clinic, killing people. Before that, Bill O'Reilly spent weeks exhorting "somebody should do something" about a doctor who performed late-term abortions, calling him "Tiller the Baby Killer". Eventually, yet another "lone wolf" followed through and killed him. Then there's the idiot who got riled up over the Pizzagate conspiracy theory and went in shooting to the supposed pizzeria/dungeon.
Where does it end?

The right-wing "media" propaganda machine is going apeshit because CNN caught the president golfing on duty for the 86th time this year.
