    Regardless of the arguments attempting to deny the existence of fake news or down play its impact, the truth is that it has infected both journalism and social discourse. The business of propaganda or creating false news for the purpose of manipulating public opinion is not new. People like Dan Rather have made a career of it, the New York Times built an empire using it and CNN created a worldwide brand, making the use of fake news an accepted format in the process. ~snip~ The first amendment guarantees both free speech and freedom of the press. It is fundamental...
  • South Florida QAnon Cop Gets Demoted From SWAT Team

    12/03/2018 2:33:06 PM PST · by MNDude · 44 replies
    This past Friday, Broward Sheriff's Office SWAT member Matt Patten wore a QAnon conspiracy-theory patch while greeting Vice President Mike Pence at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Today Patten was reprimanded and demoted from the SWAT team and BSO’s Office of Homeland Security. For the uninitiated, QAnon is the staggeringly dumb internet conspiracy theory that claims Donald Trump is secretly working to arrest a coterie of high-level pedophiles in Hollywood and the Democratic Party. In reality, NBC News has proffered convincing evidence that the people behind the conspiracy theory are actually a group of online con artists on YouTube and 4chan.

    WHEELING — More than 100 members of the 305th Military Police Company of Wheeling were deployed to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Saturday, following an official ceremony at Triadelphia Middle School’s gymnasium. The 400-day deployment is in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, according to Sgt. First Class Reginald Pickett, with the 305th. He said the troops will be performing various military police duties during this period. Several speakers, including Lt. Col. Jonathan Bennett, commander of the 400th Military Police Battalion, spoke to the troops and their families about the hardships involved with a long deployment.
  • Broward County Sheriff's Office investigates deputy's #QAnon patch

    The Broward County Sheriff's Office is investigating after one of its deputies was photographed wearing a #QAnon patch while meeting Vice President Mike Pence. Broward County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said the deputy -- identified as Matt Pattern in the photo -- was not authorized to wear the patch, which read "Question the Narrative." #QAnon is a far-right conspiracy theory popular with a small group of supporters of President Donald Trump. At a July Trump rally in Tampa, some rallygoers sported #QAnon shirts and signs. The movement has been called everything from “a deranged conspiracy cult” to a grassroots...

  • The Acosta-Trump dispute: TV or not TV? That is the question

    The Star Ledger of Newark ^ | 11.15.18 | Paul Mulshine
    A lot of my fellow journalists are upset that CNN's Jim Acosta was banned from White House press conferences. Not me. I would prefer that all press conferences be restricted to the press, by which I mean the print media. I've been a print journalist since before Acosta entered kindergarten. For the first five years or so of my career I never attended a press conference that included TV and radio people. That made for a much more informative interchange between journalists and politicians. The reporters wanted simply to have their questions answered. The answers could then be incorporated into...

    FULL TITLE: America, Did You Forget About The Created “Fake News” Legalization from 2016 Which is Being Played Out Today? Look to who released the “fake news blacklist.” It was the Washington Post. Who then fueled the fire? The same media that 94% of Americans say they do not believe in, and rightly so. They want to knock everyone over by force while they are left standing. Who then gains from all of this? “For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at...

Keith Ellison, D-Minn.; Barbara Lee, D-Calif.; Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; Danny Davis, D-Ill.; Andre Carson, D-Ind.; Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y.; and Al Green, D-Texas.
