Sharyl Attkisson Explains The Origins Of The 2016 'Fake News' Narrative In TedX Talk
"Attkisson pointed out that "fake news" in the form of tabloid journalism and false media narratives has always been around under different names. But she noticed that in 2016, there seemed to be a concerted effort by the MSM to focus America's attention on the idea of "fake news" in conservative media."
I agree. If you look back, you'll find this narrative building collusion between journalists and other leftists has been going on long before it was called "fake news."
Remember The JournOlist from 2010? It exposed "journalists" coordinating articles with each other to cover up obama scandals in order to get him re-elected. Two names on the JournOlist, Ben Smith and David Corn, were also first to publish the fake Steele dossier at BuzzFeed & Mother Jones. Sounds like they're still colluding.
Just as a rose by any other name smells as sweet, a scandalous agenda-driven attempt by "journalists" to control the views of the citizenry, smells like a cesspool no matter what you call it.
