I don't blame Sean Spicer for answering this entrapping and speculative question from the press this way. He nails it when he says there is more evidence that CNN colluded... [Read More]

It did not escape Seth Meyers—or anyone, really—that Donald Trump seemed to pilfer from Chevy Chase's playbook in a recent Time interview when he declared: "Hey look, in the mean time, I guess, I can't be doing so badly, because I'm president, and you're not." Aside from the "holy-shit-can-you-believe-the-man-in-the-Oval-Office-actually-said-that" quality of the statement, it also egregiously copies Chase's famous Weekend Update sign-off. And Meyers is pissed. "Okay, I didn't mind when you talked dirty with Billy Bush or told Russia to hack Hillary's emails, but when you start stealing bits from Weekend Update anchors, it is on," he... [Read More]

Propaganda's a dirty word, casting a shadow of fake news and wily psychological manipulation onto shape-shifting political events. America is hardly immune to the word, or its practice. In the World War II years several of Hollywood's directors engaged in the gathering, staging (in some cases) and dissemination of wartime propaganda, some of it thrilling and good for war bond sales, some of it stark and painful, some of it grimly racist.

A North Carolina man pleaded guilty on Friday to opening fire in a Washington pizzeria that fake news reports claimed housed a child sex ring linked to 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Edgar Welch, 28, of Salisbury, was accused of firing at least three shots from an AR-15 rifle inside the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in December and pointing the gun at an employee after showing up to investigate the online conspiracy rumors. No one was hurt. Welch pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to a federal charge of interstate transportation of a firearm with intent... [Read More]

FCC chairman Ajit Pai continued this week to stick with historic comments about the value of free media but not weigh in on the recent comments of Donald Trump that the media are the enemy of the people. Pai had said last week in a letter to congressional Democrats concerned about the President's view that Trump had been referring to "fake news."  But a reporter following the FCC's public meeting March 23 pointed out that just this week the President had included ABC and NBC, whose broadcast content the FCC regulates, in the fake news category, as he earlier...

It hopes this will prevent such content from crowding out factual, accurate and trustworthy information in the top search results. "We're explicitly avoiding the term 'fake news,' because we think it is too vague," said Paul Haahr, ... [Read More]

The latest poll emailed by Trump HQ to its mailing lists asks supporters to click based on whether they "stand with President Trump" or "believe Democrats and Fake News": click the former and you're taken to a donation solicitation, click the latter and you are taken to a page where you're informed that "Democrats, the media, and the entire opposition have tried to take down President Trump by attacking him, spreading fake news and fake polls, and spreading fake news."

Long before there was the expression "fake news" — or, as the president tweets it, "FAKE NEWS" — there was the National Enquirer. This was pretty much understood to be the definition of fake news. The Lindbergh baby might have been carried off by the Loch Ness monster — that sort of thing. While the president labels many outlets "fake news," he speaks with nothing but respect about the National Enquirer. He did so in his recent interview with Time magazine, whose Washington bureau chief brought up the tale of the Cruz family and the JFK assassination. ... [Read More]

You've probably read some of the stories. Maybe it was the one about thousands of fake ballots being stored in a Columbus warehouse for the 2016 election. Or one about President Obama signing an executive order to ban the Pledge of Allegiance in schools. They're all fake. [Read More]
