President Obama and other Clinton supporters — including their media/propaganda organizations (CNN, owned by Time Warner; and MSNBC, owned by Comcast) are trying to blame "fake news" websites for spreading false and misleading information about Queen Hillary Clinton — and that's why Donald Trump won the election. Of course, it's totally laughable. The Clintonite cult members, the ALT-LEFT radicals, George's Soros's Purple Revolution, and their corporate media have all been in complete denial and in an hysterical upheaval ever since November 8th.
Yes, there are some fake news sites on the internet, and there are some parody sites as well — such as The Onion (which some people have been fooled into believing was "real" news). But the vast majority of us can discern real from fake most of the time if we did the minimum of research. Hint: If you see an ad for Japanese porn, the content could be questionable. And if you see a PayPal button asking for donations (like on this page), you can assume it's a personal blog where someone is only offering commentary and opinion (like the corporate media does 90% of the time when discussing politics and polls).
Christiane Amanpour (pictured above) is the chief international correspondent and anchor at CNN, and she just received the Burton Benjamin Memorial Award for "her extraordinary efforts in the cause of press freedom". During her recent speech (while mentioning those "fake news" websites) she severely bashed President-elect Donald Trump and everyone who didn't believe CNN — the cable news network that dishonestly colluded with the Clinton campaign and repeatedly and often falsely reported on both Senator Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump to get Hillary Clinton elected as the next U.S. President. (That isn't fake news, that is the truth. And the election was also about Trump's views on "Americanism vs. Clinton's "globalism".)
* The Burton Benjamin Memorial Awards dinner was held at New York's swanky Waldorf-Astoria hotel. It was chaired by Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide and hosted by David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker and a Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) board member.
The video below includes excerpts of Christiane Amanpour [propaganda] speech -- along with my insets -- followed by a Fox News report from Tucker Carlson. NOTE: There were professional paid protestors at Trump's rallies. That isn't "fake news". We learned from Wikileaks and other sources, because the media has their own agenda.
Christiane Amanpour's FULL 2016 Burton Benjamin Memorial Award acceptance speech is here at YouTube. (Burton Benjamin was the former head of CBS News who passed away on September 19, 1988.) CBS had recently omitted a plea from Donald Trump for non-violence in a recent 60 Minutes interview that they aired on TV while the media was condemning him for not saying anything about the riots. (Is that honest and truthful media?)
CNN's Christiane Amanpour thinks only SHE knows the REAL truth — and she was very displeased that Trump had bypassed the media and talked directly to the people. WOW! Christiane Amanpour believes that only the lying and biased media hacks like herself should be the "gatekeepers" to the REAL TRUTH. She hysterically warns us about the rise of the "alt-right" and Hitlerism / White Supremacy / anti-Semitism — both here in the U.S. and across the world (like England's #Brexit movement) — as though only the political ideology of the ALT-LEFT and globalism will set us free. Amanpour sounded exactly like a foreign communist propagandist (or a Tokyo Rose) — as though ONLY SHE and others like her in the elite corporate left-leaning media conglomerations are supposed to know the REAL TRUTH. (We can handle the truth, but Clinton cult members can not.)
On a day in which Donald Trump had pounded furiously away at one of his favorite themes — the "rigged" and "crooked" and "dishonest" media (which they are) — the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) got scared and issued a scathing statement labeling a possible Trump presidency as a Satanic threat to Freedom of the Press (the freedom to lie and cheat and influence voter sentiment and elections). In New York on October 13, 2016 The chairman of the board of CPJ (Sandra Mims Rowe) issued the following statement (full of BS) on behalf of the organization. Full text below:
Guaranteeing the free flow of information to citizens through a robust, independent press is essential to American democracy. For more than 200 years this founding principle has protected journalists in the United States and inspired those around the world, including brave journalists facing violence, censorship, and government repression.
Donald Trump, through his words and actions as a candidate for president of the United States, has consistently betrayed First Amendment values. On October 6, CPJ's board of directors passed a resolution declaring Trump an unprecedented threat to the rights of journalists and to CPJ's ability to advocate for press freedom around the world.
Since the beginning of his candidacy, Trump has insulted and vilified the press and has made his opposition to the media a centerpiece of his campaign. Trump has routinely labeled the press as "dishonest" and "scum" and singled out individual news organizations and journalists.
He has mocked a disabled New York Times journalist and called an ABC News reporter a "sleaze" in a press conference. He expelled Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from a campaign press conference because he asked an "impertinent" question, and has publicly demeaned other journalists.
* MY NOTE: The Democrat's and the media's claim about Trump mocking the disabled was totally fabricated by the Democrats and the media. Story and videos here by Catholics For Trump. Today I notified CPJ via their contact page about this and asked that they revise the statement. I doubt they will, because they are dishonest.
Trump has refused to condemn attacks on journalists by his supporters. His campaign has also systematically denied press credentials to outlets that have covered him critically, including The Washington Post, BuzzFeed, Politico, The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, Univision, and The Des Moines Register.
Throughout his campaign, Trump has routinely made vague proposals to limit basic elements of press and internet freedom. At a rally in February, Trump declared that if elected president he would "open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money." In September, Trump tweeted, "My lawyers want to sue the failing @nytimes so badly for irresponsible intent. I said no (for now), but they are watching. Really disgusting."
While some have suggested that these statements are rhetorical, we take Trump at his word. His intent and his disregard for the constitutional free press principle are clear.
A Trump presidency would represent a threat to press freedom in the United States, but the consequences for the rights of journalists around the world could be far more serious. Any failure of the United States to uphold its own standards emboldens dictators and despots to restrict the media in their own countries. This appears to be of no concern to Trump, who indicated that he has no inclination to challenge governments on press freedom and the treatment of journalists.
When MSNBC's Joe Scarborough asked him in December if his admiration of Russian President Vladimir Putin was at all tempered by the country's history of critical journalists being murdered, his response was: "He's running his country, and at least he's a leader, unlike what we have in this country... Well, I think that our country does plenty of killing, too."
Through his words and actions, Trump has consistently demonstrated a contempt for the role of the press beyond offering publicity to him and advancing his interests.
For this reason CPJ is taking the unprecedented step of speaking out now. This is not about picking sides in an election. This is recognizing that a Trump presidency represents a threat to press freedom unknown in modern history.
We call on Trump to ensure that journalists are able to cover his campaign and his rallies without interference or impediment; to condemn threats against journalists made by his supporters; and to ensure that his statements and actions in the balance of this campaign are consistent with America's First Amendment tradition.
CPJ is a nonpartisan advocacy organization that does not take a position on this or any election. At the same time, we cannot be silent when we believe the conduct of the campaign does damage to America's standing on free press issues around the world, and to CPJ's ability to protect global press freedom.
We hold all candidates and political leaders to the same standard. In 2013, CPJ published a critical report on President Obama's press freedom record. No matter who is elected president, CPJ will hold the administration accountable for the highest standards at home and for strong advocacy for the rights of journalists around the world.
Clinton's cult members are also now saying the Trump/Clinton election was rigged . . . even when a member of the Clinton cult (Obama) says elections can't be rigged. These wack jobs are going to have to stop whining some day . . . and stop blaming fake news and stop offering career criminal candidates for President.
