The Left is Busily Planting Fake Red-Meat Conservative News Sites

Many of the fake stories conservatives are tricked into sharing have been planted by the left to make fools of us.

By Rachel Alexander Published on September 2, 2016

Almost all of us have been a victim of accidentally spreading fake news at one time. A trusted friend emails you a link to an article that is red meat for the conservative base; it sounds legitimate, and the name of the site even sounds official. You forward the article and post it on Facebook and Twitter — and then the backlash is embarrassing. Multiple people point out you’re wrong, and you feel like an idiot. But how were you to know, especially in this information overload, social media era? It has become normal to quickly skim articles and headlines. And why would you suspect your most trusted, intelligent friends would be sending you false news?

It used to be The Onion was the only satire news site. And the site makes it very clear its news is satire. But within the last year, multiple sites (there is a list compiled here) have sprung up that do not make it clear they are satire, if at all. They brazenly post fake news that isn’t even funny, like The Onion, but sounds like legitimate news.

By posting these outlandish tales, the sites attract many page views, which allows them to make money from advertisers. Even more nefarious, some are run by Democrats in order to make conservatives look like radical extremists. The strategy, an insider told me, is to fool so many conservatives into spreading a ridiculous, fake article that finally a prominent elected official falls for it. Then the left pounces on the official and makes them look foolish and/or an extremist.

As I’ve written previously, putting out heroic stories about Donald Trump that turn out to be false doesn’t help Trump when people discover they are false.

Some of the worst offenders are sites that rip off names from legitimate conservative news sites. World News Daily Report is a typical example. It sounds very similar to the conservative site WorldNetDaily, which recently renamed itself to WND. The disclaimer on the site says nothing about the news being fake; instead, it disingenuously states that the site is not responsible for inaccurate information. The fake site’s “About us FAQ” page pretends to cater to conservative Jews and Christians with a strong defense of Israel. Yet how are fake news articles helping Israel? The site has become so successful that the myth-debunking site Snopes now lists it second on its “Field Guide to Fake News Sites and Hoax Purveyors.”

For some of these sites, the proverbial chickens have come home to roost. The gossip website Gawker was recently sued by celebrity wrestler Hulk Hogan for posting a sex tape of him, which put the company into bankruptcy and forced it to shut down a week ago. There are many ways these sites could be sued out of existence, such as for libel or the unauthorized use of images. Facebook has started removing these articles from users’ news feeds. Perhaps a developer can create an app to add to browsers that will specifically block these sites.

The people who run these sites are nothing more than cruel bullies who should get a taste of their own medicine. It is one thing to identify a story as parody, but to deliberately print false news to trick innocent people in order to make them look bad and destroy their credibility is dishonest, a nuisance and an abuse of the press. If they knowingly put false news about a crime or catastrophe out over TV, they would be prosecuted, due to the dangers of creating substantial public harm such as a mass panic.

Until these sites are curtailed, conservatives must get into the habit of looking up news articles regularly on myth-debunking sites like Snopes (granted, that particular site leans to the left). If The New York Times isn’t breaking some huge story, but a site called Your News Wire is, that is a good indication it may be a fake article.

    The fundamental propositions of lefty-liberalism are bogus. That’s why the propagation of these ideas, which don’t correspond to fact and reality, must rely on dishonest ways and means. Fake news reports and blocking the expression of conservative opinion in the public square, are just a couple of the many ways in which the lefty consensus is being imposed.

    It takes moral courage to defy the lefty consensus by speaking the truth in public, and by holding the conservative line under pressure – especially when it’s unpopular to do so.

  • jnsesq

    Nothing new. The Left has had the lying media doing this for decades. Truth is a stranger to the Democrat Party, just as Alinsky instructed.

    • PhonecardMike

      The mainstream Democratic media reports Republican rumors and hides Democratic facts.

      • Seriously

        The mainstream democrat media CREATES the republican rumors! ….

        • PhonecardMike

          Sounds like a Disney movie! Lets all sing “The circle of the Rumor!”

  • William M. Bayne III

    LMAO. All liberal media news is fake. We’re already immune to the lies. Next. Desperation is breading more regressive stupidity. I have to admit, it is entertaining.

    Because all the left has are lies.

    • lostinnm

      Desperation on HRC’s part is no reason for anyone to jump thru their rear end.
      Be ready for them to throw even the kitchen sink at the voters…
      HRC best move would be many news conferences, but we all know that ain’t happening and why!

  • Basically, a lot of huffing and puffing….then some marginal story story appears with no real weight. The fact that heavy-weights like the NY Times and WaPo aren’t able to compete anymore or conduct real investigative reporting (same as the 60 Minutes crowd) also falls into this ‘pit’.

    • lostinnm

      Well said! The news aka MSM screwed them selfs, they deserve everything that is coming their way and more. IMHO

  • Richie Rich

    Playing fair is foreign to the democrat Freeloader Party

  • Tony

    I thought the fake news was called “fox”…huh, who knew.

    • Richie Rich

      Think better

      • Tony

        advice your mom always gives you?

        • Tony

          hey rich boy….know why fox news is banned in canada?

          • Richie Rich

            Because you’re an idiot?

          • Tony

            why do you keep responding with quips your mom made to you in your youth?

          • Richie Rich

            To humiliate you

          • Tony

          • journogal

            Fox News lives rent free in your head, doesn’t it? Why do you assume every conservative/Republican watches it?

          • Tony

            you do.

  • ronfromflorida

    The fake news sites are NBC ABC, CBS, CNN and MSNBC and we already know about their partisan hatred.

    • Just A Clot Away

      PBS and NPR too.

        Fake stories planted by FAKE Americans !!

    • Snipaho

      Those news sites are DIRECTLY tied in with the US Military in order to change reality. They have thousands of military and civilian personnel dedicated to changing reality. This is no longer “conspiracy theory” it’s a public fact: US military operation being conducted to manipulate US social media

      The US military is developing software that will let it secretly manipulate social media sites by using fake online personas to influence internet conversations and spread its propaganda. A Californian corporation has been awarded a contract with United States Central Command (Centcom), which oversees US armed operations in the Middle East and Central Asia, to develop what is described as an “online persona management service” that will allow each chosen US serviceman or woman to control up to 10 separate identities based around the world. The project has been likened by web experts to China’s attempts to control and restrict free speech on the internet. Critics are likely to complain that it will allow the US military to create a false consensus in online conversations, change the narrative, crowd out unwelcome opinions, and smother commentaries or reports that do not correspond with its own objectives. The discovery that the US military is developing false online personalities – known to users of social media as “sock puppets” – could also encourage other governments, private companies and non-government organizations to do the same. The Centcom contract stipulates that each fake online persona must have a convincing background, history and supporting details, and that up to 50 US-based controllers should be able to operate false identities from their workstations “without fear of being discovered by sophisticated adversaries”. Centcom spokesman Commander Bill Speaks said: “The technology supports classified blogging activities on foreign-language websites to enable Centcom to counter violent extremist and enemy propaganda outside the US.” Google it.

      • HarryObrian

        Actually you can see the result in action in many of the comment sections of real news articles. When a story is released that goes against the Butcher of Benghazi aka, Killary, the comment sections get taken over by whomever that change the entire topic of conversation relative to the article and run with it and many people fall for it.

  • zombietimeshare

    How are the fake news sites any different from the left wing mainstream news sites (or is it left-alt now?) that purport to be delivering ‘real’ news?

  • Richie Rich

    Canadians are idiots?

  • Anthony

    Guess Hillary’s IT guy found new work.

  • Krypto Skriptoi

    There is no such thing as a real news site anymore.

  • Seriously

    I’ll bite, why? Muslims? Sharia? And Savage is banned from the UK, but not muslim terrorists… W.E…..

    • Tony

      nope. they consider it entertainment and will not allow them to present themselves as news…..look it up.

      • Seriously

        But they allow the others a free pass? Canada is full of bleeding heart lefties, doesn’t surprise me.

        • Tony

          just revealing the truth…you should try it sometime.

          • The_REAL_Voice_of_Reason

            That Cunnucks are morons? Next you’ll tell us there’s gambling in Casablanca Capt. Renault…….

      • DariusPicard

        So, entertainment is not permitted in Canada. Nice to know. What about MSNBC?

        • Tony

          entertainment disguised as news…man, are your really that dim? now go do your own work research monkey.

  • ronfromflorida

    Fake news like Trayvon Martin (so cute back in the 5hth grade), just innocently going for some skittles when he was set upon by an African hating White Hispanic man of low character.
    Or was it a fake story like Michal Brown Hans up Don’t shoot.
    We know who spreads the manure.

    • Tony

      farmers?

      • Richie Rich

        democrat farmers

          • Richie Rich

          • Tony

            Sure sounds like you do. No comment goes without a retort.

            Rent free in your dome sounds like Richie Rich’s current residence. Think I’ll pay him a visit…..haven’t been slumming in a while……

      I’m not sure I can go in with you 100%…….I think the real empowerment that has occurred is the one where we’ve empowered the talking heads in the media to do our thinking for us.

      Night after night, day after day I am exposed to instance after instance of some “obviously smarter than me because they got a degree in taking notes versus my engineering education” sophist telling me that I shouldn’t believe my lying eyes or ears. I didn’t really hear or see that…..it was something else.

      Is doesn’t mean is……it means something else…….

      Part of it I do agree……a large swath of Americans truly have ceded their critical thinking to Hitlery and her toadies.

      I just think lowfo empowerment has two heads…..no offense intended.

    • barney59

      Welcome to the American Liberal Media Complex!

    • rjsmd

      You must be referring to the Russia that Mitt Romney referred to as the biggest geo-political threat during the debate that Obama made fun of him and laughed that he must be stuck back in the 50’s & 60’s and the Cold War was over. Obama was sooooo much smarter, wasn’t he?

      • The_REAL_Voice_of_Reason

        Actually I think it was the “SHINEY LOOK OVER HERE” version of Russia that he was speaking about. The one Hitlery and her toadies want you to fixate on rather than look into her malfeasance.

            No, only republicans seemed to put the idea out that racism would end or that Obama was a savior. Its a cheap way for republicans to act like Obama can’t deliver on promises he never made in the first place.

    I am not surprised as their is no dirty trick that the left wont do.After all it is not about a better country that they want, they only want more power and the ability to steal more money from the American tax payer.

    • The_REAL_Voice_of_Reason

      Not everyone is as tech savvy as the rest. Many do not understand that anyone can create a website and then fill it full of lies. My 84 year old mother-in-law was flummoxed to find out that Dan Rather regularly lied straight to her face on national TV nightly. She was raised and lived much of her life when jerks like you didn’t have a platform and had to stand on a soap box on the corner raving about the end is near…..fossil fuels are killing us!!!!!!!

      Now you pay a couple of bucks for a domain name and off you go.

      But your plan for the UN to regulate the internet should cause all of this to be just a bad memory right Comrade?

  • Ms. Alexander: you make an excellent point. Wisdom and a skeptical mind are required when one reads anything on the net these days. In fact, even the author of Acts, in the Bible, encouraged a thorough cross-check of anything an alleged prophet or teacher said, by his highlight of what the Berean Jews did in Acts 17:10-12. Instead of just accepting what Paul the apostle taught (who was famous/infamous by then, with a well-known gift of miracle working), they cross-checked his teaching with their scriptures (the OT). Only when Paulian teaching was validated by scripture were they willing to accept it.

    This will get worse. A correct description of virtual reality is “fake reality”. Soon, and even now, men are drawn to live in and give their hearts to fake lovers’ domains (porn), and the sex industry is about to pioneer mind-blowing versions of this using all 5 senses. Fake news, fake love, fake life… equals only one thing.

    Real death.

    If Trump wins, and I think it likely, the “Media” will go the way of castor oil.

      Fox news beats all other “mainstream” media outlets by double, yet somehow you think their is a conspiracy…

      • libertyfirst1776

        Of course, the other 90% of the media self-identifies as liberal. And we know now, by way of DNC email hacks, that the MSM is in fact in bed with the DNC. So stop with your lies.

        • cooliest

          Lies? If anything it shows that conservative ideas dominate the news and radio, and they still lose elections.

      • Bill Boinkr

        Yeah FOX beats them with like 3 to 5 million viewers as opposed to the 500K to 1.5million of the others. FOX is still MSM!

  • Sisyphus

    Why do Clinton and her supporters attempt to brainwash us all into believing that Clinton’s extreme carelessness with sensitive and highly classified information, bad judgement and her habitual lying are wonderful and outstanding leadership qualities?

    Clinton may have a mental illness because she comes across as a brilliant speaker, while having been totally stupid and incompetent with national security.

    If elected, she will likely become much worse and the only cure for stupidity is to be honest about it. That is something she cannot ever do.

Don’t be fooled – today’s Progressives are Communists with a flowery name. The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) sued the Democrats in 2010 for stealing their platform, and today CPUSA openly endorses Crooked Hillary.

    We have gone to war to rid countries of the likes of today’s Democrat party. Remember in November! Hold your nose if you have to, but a vote for a Democrat is a vote for the Communist party. Trump is the duly nominated opposition candidate, and the only viable option to the evil, lying, corrupt, traitorous Hillary Clinton.

  • Bill Sims

    We are already on to you. Sites that claim conservative headlines then when you click on them they just rip Trump. Not working. This only hurts the Dems and confirms the lying, cheating suspicions we already have. This isn’t even a Dems agains Reps race. It’s has turned into elites and their media influence against the PEOPLE. You know, the one that were once referred to as “We the people in order to form a more perfect union” We were busy working and taking care of our loved ones and when we looked up the Rich and elite had almost stolen our country from the original purpose. For government to SERVE the people. Not the other way around.

  • anonymous_economist

    Fake news sites? As opposed to what?

    • Bill the Cat

      Precisely. I’ve just stopped listening, because the vitriol of the MSM and assorted mandarins of the Republican and Democrat parties hit nosebleed levels weeks ago, and has been getting worse.

  • Atlas Shrugged

    Don’t use Snopes anymore – they’ve been busted too many times for lying about political items in order to benefit the left.

    Simple rule of thumb for ANY news is ‘trust but verify’ with some liberal news outlets having a lower trust rating.

    The left is infamous for spreading disinformation but fortunately much of it can be debunked via a simple web search – beware of Google as it has joined the disinformation market to support the left.

    Things to be aware of are sourcing a story – fake stories are easy to find because you’ll notice that every website has the same text to the story and that all of the reference links provided either lead to each other or back to the same, non-news website.

    The fact that liberals need to do this proves that they know that they know they’re selling snake oil – after all, if your cause was just then you wouldn’t need to deceive people now would you?

    • 94c2500

      Snopes is an absolutely leftist and establishment website.
      They’ll also run cover for republicans,… if they are establishment.
      Snopes is an organized defense of the political “Uniparty.”

      Any site that refers to everything and anyone challenging officialdom as conspiracy theory or conspiracy theorist, shouldn’t be trusted by anyone.

      • Rascal69

        Wasn’t it Snopes that confirmed Hillary Clinton actually did take sniper fire in Bosnia? Or is this a fake story?

    The motto of the left is “The ends justify the means.”

  • Yaboo

    The New Yorker published a piece of attempted comedy last week about Vice Presidential candidate, Mike Pence “escaping” the Trump campaign bus for some unnecessarily-long and unfunny reasons. Yahoo jumped all over that steaming pile of unfunny text and linked to it. The California-kiddies were all over it, until someone finally put down the bong and realized that they had been duped by a false story. The link went away soon afterward.

    Occasionally believing what you read is not just a fault of the right. It’s just that there is nobody at THE STREAM reporting about how dumb it is when someone on the left falls for a planted fake story.

  • Schlag

    “If the New York Times isn’t breaking some huge story”…. it must be about Hillary Clinton

  • American Voter

    As they’ve said every four years since I’ve been around, “this election is too important.” That means journalistic ethics be damned – our particular issue is too important to allow the truth to be heard. Whether it be Global Warming, the War on Women, Si Se Puede, or whatever – every issue is too important to tell the truth and let the American people make up their own minds. The simple truth is, if the true agenda of the left was published in full, they’d lose in a landslide – and everybody knows it.

  • LBacchus

    This really is nothing new or surprising.
    The only people they will fool are millennials who have parents that are not involved in teaching their children.
    All my children are of voting age and we discuss political issues not people. I set the people aside and open up the issue to it’s fullest and we discuss. Sometimes an issue may be discussed for days or weeks depending upon the depth of the issue.
    The problem the left is going to have is that the internet itself will provide the facts they may decide are not worthy of revealing.

    Teach your children about propaganda and how it works. This will prevent either ideology from complete control of the hearts and minds of the citizenry.

    • Wrabble

      “The only people they will fool are millennials…”

      Unfortunately it’s not just millennials.

      Some older conservatives fall for fake stories. The really frustrating thing is that when one points out their errors even in a polite fashion, they are likely to become defensive and assert that “it could be true.”

      • LBacchus

        True. They are still of the mindset that their government would never do such an evil thing.

        • 3rdPartyNow

          Those older liberals would never believe that the Clintons are corrupt. Their mindset is the correct mindset.

      • 3rdPartyNow

        But older liberals are really savvy. Right?

  • 94c2500

    Referring to leftist New York Times as the “go-to” site for accurate news is as equally deceptive as any fake news outlet.

    I’ve learned to distrust all mainstream media and treat ANYTHING written, with suspicion.

    • Rascal69

      Likewise…I have become totally incapable of watching either the National or Local news for the major networks. For instance, the local NBC affiliate here the Detroit area has “news” stories everyday that are based on “studies” done by such and such groups. They present the information as if it is completely without bias but all you have to know is who processed the study, then you know what results will be provided. To think that these people are considered journalists is beyond humorous.

  • Smiddywesson

    Simple rule of thumb: If the site doesn’t have a comments section, you are reading propaganda.
    No comments, I don’t return to their site.

    • Wrabble

      Um comments can be propaganda too. Having a comments section does not ensure legitimacy.

      • Smiddywesson

        Sure, it doesn’t “assure legitimacy” but it multiplies your opportunity to hear the other side of the argument and have inaccuracies pointed out to you. It’s up to you to discern what the truth is from the available discourse. Your argument is absurd, it amounts to an assertion that comments are useless because they don’t do all the work for you. Maybe you’ve been hanging out at MSM sites where the comments are censored.

        Considering most leftwingnuts believe their own azzhole is a think-tank, you have a lot of nerve to speak of an “echo chamber” since that’s where you live. Barack “the pathological and sociopathic liar” Obama lies so much and on such a grand scale, he is the ONLY president to ever win “Liar of the Year” and for multiple years. Bill Clinton came close but he’s running second only to Barack.

        Hillary “the bald faced liar” Clinton has told so many lies, the leftwingnuts just accept them as being part of her personality without any regard for the consequences of such a liar potentially being POTUS.

        And we have the true leftwingnutjobs like Harry Reid who stood in front of the world and knowingly lied when he said Mitt Romney has not paid taxes in years. And the leftwinnguts like “SkyGuy” thought that was just fine.

        And “Gary Miller” wants to refer to anyone on the Right as a “nut job” when you have idiots like Nancy Pelosi stand up and admit NO ONE has even read the ACA / Obamacare yet “we have to pass it to see what’s in it” like it’s just one of her routine stool samples.

    Another reason these crap sites exist with the fake news articles is for the ad revenue from the million ads that are all over these pages. Just look at the headlines – gross exaggerations and outlandish claims, anything to get a naive reader to open the article and hopefully click on the ads.

    • Warren

      Some of the legitimate news sites aren’t much better. Legitimate organizations such as Teaparty[dot]net seem to be in bed with westernjournalism[dot]com and conservativetribune[dot]com.

    Even fake news is interesting at least. I love the Onion. I once listened to the War of the World on a replay, and thought, how could anyone believe in aliens like that, and laughed. Nearly every major news has printed something of an alien type, bogus evolution stories in the New York Times to their “Islamophobia” article written by “Ali Akbar”, and a photoshopped picture of Iran’s Ahmadinajad holding a dove on the front page of the NYT… (Saw that exact picture of him holding up a canister of enriched uranium months before.) Do we know who is really telling the truth? Even the fact checkers do not check the facts.

  • ronfromflorida

    I learned my lesson after Trayvon Martin ( the innocent little Black kid just out for a few skittles) that most everything coming from the mainstream news media is a pointed lie meant to cause controversy and harm to this nation.

    • The_REAL_Voice_of_Reason

      After some time had passed, I found a site where someone had done VERY extensive research and put together a pretty comprehensive detail of what likely happened that night. I found the layout (from overhead) of the area very enlightening. Most of the stories I had read painted a very different picture of the surroundings. Once you plugged in the 911 call and its timeline……it became fairly clear what had transpired.

      It’s a shame that we have to be our own journalists. I guess that’s why most of print is nearly dead and TV is not far behind.

      • ronfromflorida

        They deliberately obfuscated the story, the cell phone calls, and the timeline, Fake News.

        • The_REAL_Voice_of_Reason

          Yes sir! I was flabbergasted to see some of what they provided. I had consumed a lot of info on this and from multiple, multiple sources.

          Then i went through their report, complete with diagrams and distances marked off etc. and I was shocked. Most of what I thought I knew was made up BS from the liberal media….in spite of the fact that I had consumed a ton of info from sources outside the MSM.

          Makes me sick.

  • Prelusive007

    It used to be called “satire” when stuff was simply made up for the sake of lying about it. Now the leftwingnuts do it so often, practically ALL leftwingnut media is filled with lies. They can call it “satire” if they’d like but it’s lies just the same.

    Think about Brian Williams . . . . . and Soledad O’Brien . . . . and just imagine how many people really believed Hillary Clinton when she claimed to have been fired on by sniper fire . . and had to zig-zag across a tarmac after being attacked as her craft was landing . . . . ALL of which were lies. But lies don’t count when they are uttered by the left wing. Matter of fact, the left seems to love lies. Look at the lies from Barack “the pathological and sociopathic liar” Obama and that is evident.

    The left loves them some liars.

    “I did not have sex with that woman.”

    “If you like your doctor . . . . ”

    “If you like your insurance plan. . . . ”

    “I was fired on by sniper fire . . . . ”

    “Chelsea was jogging around those very buildings when 9/11 occurred. . . . ”

    “That depends on what your definition of is, is. . . .. ”

    “Mitt Romney has not paid taxes in years . . . . ”

    The list of lies from the left would fill a library.

    • HarryObrian

      Trump is out there in the flesh and making speeches that no one can re-write nor deny. No one has to go to any news site, just listen to the truth from Trump, anywhere. BTW, you’ll never hear anything Killary says because she is too sick to speak.

  • vinny

    What dumb liberals will never understand is conservative are not slaves to a party particularly a party that lies as easily as we breath air. Create all the phony news you want we will verify the sources before we blindly act like dumb liberal democrats. Please all you leftist spend more of your money on garbage like this but for all you “intellectually dishonest” liberal fools have you asked yourselves this: Why would they need to do this if your side is “Always right”?. A bigger question: Why would these leftist idiots do this with supposedly their own money?, could it be they get their money where Hillary and the Clinton’s get their foundation money? or are they using special tax loophole that allows them to recoup that money?, you idiots would know it as capitalism, something you morons hate………….supposedly.

      • Cool Whip ll

        She has never lied to the public. I heard her tell Scott Pelley.

  • Stephen

    Even sources that were legitimate in the past now lie right up front. In the wake of yesterday’s wide-ranging immigration speech by Trump, AP boiled it down to the headline: “Trump To Deport Millions” when, in fact, nowhere among his 10-point approach did Trump cite “millions” to be deported. He does propose to remove the baddest of the bad and make an attempt to protect us from importing more who would harm us. If the Associated Press thinks it’s a good thing to keep people like that in America, they should simply be honest and come out of their little closet and say so.

  • Stephen DeVoy

    The author is on to something, but has defined it to narrowly. The purpose of Hillary Clinton’s fake news campaign is to create the illusion that there really is a “vast right-wing conspiracy” behind all allegations against her. This is a psychological operation. The real target is her own followers. By planting fake negative stories that can be easily dismissed, and by watching the right-wing and far-left media repeat those allegations, she can say to her followers that ALL ALLEGATIONS against her are false, after all, look at this BS being passed about.

He managed to elude capture, certainly another Clinton hit that did not go as planned if you ask me. It was at 2:47 am London time.

      Rigged, how? There are equal Dems and Reps overseeing the election process

  • Cod Fish

    Since these morons live in a world of fake news, it’s not surprising..

    • Steve Doll

      It’s already been proven Faux News watchers are the least informed and most lied to viewers. Nice spin try though

      • wri7913

        more fake news lol

      • Libertarian_Thinker

        Proven how?

        • Steve Doll

          Its a little thing called fact checking

          • Libertarian_Thinker

            apparently you are unable to back up your specious claim. Typical lefty.

            Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so. — Ronald Reagan

  • PeteRoeder

    CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, and most newspapers, a la New York Times, are all fake as well and have been for decades.

    • Sigint

      Don’t forget Fox, which has been at least 75% fake as well these days.

      • PeteRoeder

        I doubt whether there are any popular media companies which are much more than stenographers for the current Regime. Journalism is dead.

  • William Jones

    They might tell people about God…..Oh, they think they are God….
    or at least royalty….endowed to not explain about emails….

  • John Campbell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ

    This is the same MO that leftists and globalist traitors used to try to smear the National Rifle Association and gun owners around the nation who stand by the Second Amendment. Instead of faked news articles it was faked alleged quotes from the nations founding fathers. There’s no way that anyone can claim this wasn’t intentionally done for that very evil purpose and those behind it should be exposed to public scrutiny by name.

  • Tin Can Sailor

    I wonder if these leftist understand that in the end, they only destroy themselves. Cry wolf enough times and no one will believe you.

    • John Campbell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ

      LOL
      No one believes them now! :oD

  • Josh

    This author does know that quick google search of the website can show if it is fake or not right?

    • Mtpage

      You assume that the people posting fake articles are doing it unknowingly. Maybe they post it because it fits their narrative, and they don’t care if its true

  • Josh

    Also hilarious that people are blaming others for not verifying something on their own. Somehow its the left’s fault that a conservative would share something.

  • Jack Coyote

    I know i just visited Bright Bart.

  • David Colpo

    Ms. Alexander: I guess it’s far too much asking people to do a little research and sharpen their BS meters to make such a suggestion in your little piece. Nah, that’s too much like individual responsibility – how quaint and untrendy is that!!

    • concerndcitizen

      My experience is that conservatives are too trusting and kindhearted. As if that’s a bad thing. Just shows how upside down our society has become.

  • muckraker

    Lefties frequently post fake news and have to go no further than CNN, NBC, CBS or ABC for their stories.

  • Groo

    The leftists continue to shoot themselves in the feet. Keep it up!

  • Charlie

    Typical Liberal tactic. If you can’t win fairly cheat or win by trickery. If you can’t win an argument insult others, talk over others, raise nonsensical off-topic arguments.

    • Amos10

      It’s the Saul Alensky strategy for winning.

    • Steve Doll

      Funny. That’s the definition of the entire Republican Party

      • Barbara comingtogetyou

        We’ve always been at war with eastasia.

  • Amos10

    These sites will have a field day now that the Kenyan Obama has appointed Homeland Security to take charge of the November Presidential Election. I can just see the news flashes now: “With 0.0001 of the vote in, Obama declares Grandma the winner in all states except Guam.” Wasn’t that one of King Obama’s 57 States?

  • Mtpage

    People who post fake conservative news are usually liberals who know fully well what they are doing. Usually they are encourage by the social media outlet where the post is made. We already know this. Thanks, come again.

    • Jess Mee

      It wouldn’t happen nearly so much if it didn’t work so well.

  • Mtpage

    Can you smell that? It’s liberals %$#@ing themselves

  • MarvLS1

    Couldn’t expect honesty from libRats.

    • Steve Doll

      Like Faux News?

      • jaz

        what did they lie about, Stevie?

      • libslie

        Faux news? You’re an original.

  • Electromatic

    The people running these sites aren’t really bullies. They’re the class clowns of journalism. But they know they’re part of the Ministry of Disinformation, and disinformation is an element of warfare. I do see people falling for this daily, posting and reposting obvious fiction.

    It is incumbent on the reader to use some logical discernment to not be fooled by fakes.

  • Steve Doll

    Republicans/Conservatives post fake stuff all the time. Now you are made because you found out some of the sites are not legitimate news?

    • jaz

      like what?

      • RTUT

        Exactly! Example please?

        Fake media is major media corrupting society for the advantage of the democrat party. When FOX started it exploded because it told the truth. the other outlets: When Bill Clinton was caught lying and cheating on his wife the media takes lead defense for him coming out with stories whose sole purpose is to say that everyone does what Bill Clinton does. Forget that the president is the highest leader in the land and, one would hope, an example of a good man. But democrat politicians and the media have to continuously define deviancy down in order to meet them in the gutter where they reside. And democrat voters follow them down into the gutter, accepting their excuses.

      • Chipsie

        wait for it…..,

        wait for it…..,

        crickets.

  • Elaygee

    Boo hoo, the Creepublican party of lies has the sadz over comedy posts that only a moron would believe

    • jaz

      why do democrats like to give themselves prostate exams with their noses?

      • RTUT

        Because it smells like a good idea? I am just guessing.

    • RTUT

      Why do democrats revert to fascistic and Marxist tactics that only a corrupt moron would do? Starting fights, killing cops, trashing cities, burning and robbing, starting race wars and race baiting. Why? Is this liberal fascism ideology so poorly thought out that all they have is to behave like two year olds having a fit? Why aren’t they ashamed?

    • Chipsie

      If you’re believing anything Killary is saying at this point in time, then consider yourself a moron of the highest order.

  • Libertarian_Thinker

    The truth is irrelevant to communist, islamists and democrats

  • concerndcitizen

    When people knowingly lie, they get karma. It’s an even bigger problem for people who intentionally get others to unknowingly spread their lies.

  • Joe333

    Yeah I don’t know who except for liberals are tricked by fake news stories
    They can’t even figure out that CNN is fake

  • RockyRaccoon

    Simple solution: stick to sites you know and trust.

  • RTUT

    The fake news is major media so much of the time and democrats fall for it every day.

    • wri7913

      So so so true!

  • Morris Minor

    Sounds like it’s time for Drudge or Breitbart to run a list of known fake news sites for the benefit of all their readers.

    • Libertarian_Thinker

      ABC
      NBC
      CBS
      CNN
      PBS
      CNBC
      AP
      NYT
      LA TIMES
      And so on…

    • HD

      Drudge or Breitbart? That’s hilarious.

  • Andrei Vyshinsky

    I have to wonder if THIS isn’t a “fake news story” itself.

    • MamaCat

      With the suggestion of looking things up on Snopes, I’d venture to say, yes

  • The Bohemian Romantic

    I was cheering until I got to “Look it up on SNOPES”. C’mon Lady. Do your homework. Horrible advice!!

  • Teachem-Twice

    Soros has told MSNBC years ago that their news outlets are NOT to be ratings oriented! That he’ll supply the paychecks no matter what ratings reveal.!.!

  • Libertarian_Thinker

    Just a reminder, remember Democrats and Hillary supporters election day is Wednesday November 9th this year. See you there!

    • FlyntLoc

      That is the first thing that popped into my mind. lol

    • LLinLa

      That’s a nice gesture LT! You forgot to mention the free car giveaways at every dealer for one day only on Tuesday. All you need to do is arrive before 6 am and stay until 8pm to qualify. Then on Wednesday to qualify for free gas for a year, you need to ferry at least two voters (dead or alive) to the nearest polling precinct and if they won’t let you in, protest and burn the place down to show them who’s relevant. (/sarc off)

  • Joe Firewood

    All I hear you say is that we shouldn’t have to take responsibility for our own gullibility, and that it’s fine to take everything in the world around us at face value without thinking. The world is full of lies. Companies, government and the news lie to us every day. I think people who can’t understand sarcasm or jokes, who take themselves too seriously are at a great disadvantage. Our only protection is to learn how to separate lies, marketing, jokes and sarcasm from reality – to think for ourselves.

    • Mike McChesney

      BOOM! There you go! I was thinking the EXACT SAME THING. When I see something that looks inflammatory, I always check the story out before spreading it. If everybody else did (at least) a minimum amount of due dilligence, 99% of those bogus stories would disappear.

  • Matchstick

    If you want the truth, listen to the words coming out of the candidate’s mouths. Every time we hear Hillary, I hear nothing but the same old tropes from years ago, supposed solutions that have been tried over and over again, and always the claim that she cares about the children. The same talking points we’ve heard for years. Then the pundits come on and lavish her with praise about how brilliant and thoughtful she is. When you listen to Trump, he brings up issues no one else wants to talk about, such as trade deficits, defense of eminent domain, corporate tax reform and true border control. His speeches are followed up with the talking heads saying “nothing to see here, he’s just a racist.”. The media is in total failure because they no longer serve the principles of the profession, they sell their souls for money. They buy access to the candidates in return for giving unpaid advertising for the candidates they choose. No news outlet is truly unbiased any more, but the candidates will tell you their plans.
    Watch C-Span, that’s about it.

  • Davole

    Confidently and realistically disregard all lame stream media reports which state that numerous polls prove that Hillary Clinton has an insurmountable lead in her run for the presidency.

    Donald Trump aptly demonstrates on a daily basis that America would not benefit from a sleazy last century democrat HillBilly presidency!

  • BigKnuckles

    I thought most Americans got their news from People Magazine and TMZ

  • MoBetta Jenkum

    How can we forget that Colbert Report guy… and The Onion d0t com… They are traitors against the US Constitution and need to be hunted.

    • Red-Pilled Conservative

      The Onion and Colbert are obvious parody, though. I don’t see any need to hunt them down. In fact, what they do is protected by the Constitution, so why the hell would you want to persecute them for expressing their constitutionally protected speech?

      • MoBetta Jenkum

        you are right… Patriots should prolly spent their time better by hunting trolls like you.

      • MoBetta Jenkum

        Speech should only be protected by the Constitution that is allowing for it; people like you who seek to overthrow this land’s Constitution for the sake of an anti-sovereign globalist power-grab need to be dealt with harshly. How dare you try to use this land’s Constitution against this land!

        • Jess Mee

          Who gets to make that call? Who decides which speech does or doesn’t “serve” the Constitution?

          • MoBetta Jenkum

            You have to support the Constitution to receive the free speech in that Constitution. It is not that hard to figure out…

          • Jess Mee

            And exactly where in the document does it say that? Who gets to decide whether or not someone supports the Constitution? Funny thing about Constitutional rights, they apply to everyone regardless of what they believe.

          • MoBetta Jenkum

            So you support “biting the hand that feeds”?… What a dumas

          • Jess Mee

            Some people will use their Constitutional rights in was that others don’t like. That’s how it has always been. And before you call someone else a “dumas”, work on your spelling.

      • MoBetta Jenkum

        Move somewhere else, you troll posing as a Conservative! You conserve NOTHING!… All you demand is change like a spoiled activist minority. Die!

      • MoBetta Jenkum

        If you think this land is so bad, THEN GO IMMIGRATE SOMEWHERE ELSE!… You seem to support immigration, right??? Then practice what you preach, traitor!

  • DeathMerchant

    Leftists belong in the rumored FEMA camps.

  • tomoba

    So very funny. The only ones who can not detect a satire site is the conservatives. I do appreciate that ignorant and gullible are the order of the day for conservatives, but in a way it is sad for the acknowledgement of the current status of the trailing edge of humanity.

    • Chipsie

      You sound like THE expert of the trailing edge of humanity.

      And democrats and liberals can not discern irony.

      • tomoba

        I have been studying you huckleberries for some time now. Although fun to examine, your primal existence is very dangerous to humanity.

        • Libertarian_Thinker

          Careful now you wouldn’t want to expel any excess co2.

        • Chipsie

          You mean YOUR existence could be dangerous to humanity, particularly as you support crooked Killary. And your post once again is evidence of how irony is lost on the likes of you.

        • Red-Pilled Conservative

          Did you forget to “chortle”? I’ve been studying you regressive liberals for some time, too. It is your lot that, more often than not, leads to gulags and extermination camps. Talk about being dangerous to humanity!

          By the way…chortle? Is that the sound you make while choking on Obama’s “sack lunch”?

      What? You think that maybe conservatives are trying to jerk their fellow conservatives around by planting fake news?

      Sure thing, Wilbur.

      • C. S.

        I can’t tell as easily what is real or not real. I do understand that Hillary Clinton lied about classified emails on her private server. I understand that WIKI-LEAKS released something damming enough about favoritism of Clinton over Sanders for Wasserman Shultz to step down. I understand that Clinton took in money to her foundation while she always Secretary of State. That’s all I need to know.

      • HD

        They’re looking for clicks – full stop.

    • flyboy

      You didn’t even read the f__king article, did you leftard? Idiot.

      • HD

        Kindly direct me to the location in the article of the evidence that any of these sites are liberal or Democrat fronts.

  • Chipsie

    I saw one of these sites the other day….had a name like “Business ……(something)” which claimed D. Trump had made racist remarks about black Americans, fried chicken and watermelon. I knew it was fake and that who ever came up with the “story” was quintessentially racist. It’s easy to determine a phony site because because if something this blatant is being reported on only one barely known media outlet, you can be sure it isn’t true, otherwise anything to hurt Trump would be running 24/7 in all media. The worst part was seeing that people just lapped it up unquestionably and posted their reactions with no questioning whatsoever.

  • Jason

    Is MSNBC and CNN on the list?

    • Snailmailtrucker

  • Red-Pilled Conservative

    While I dig the vibe of this article, it must be said that everyone must take responsibility for their own naivete. If you see an article with controversial subject matter, it is your responsibility to exercise some measure of due diligence before spreading such an article through your social media.

    The left has always been about dirty tricks like this. This article tries to absolve one from not realizing it as a matter of course, but we are all responsible when we get duped. Be smart.

  • HarleyYost

    Always get a secondary source before spreading information.
    Journalists are supposed to, but don’t.
    So you have to do it yourself.

    This has taken place in the past 2 presidential elections. I’ve gotten a few of them to shut down simply by engaging them and asking the sort of simple question that any Conservative would plainly understand to be a core interest.

    • HarryObrian

      Everyone already knows those fake news sites, like ABC, CBS, NBC, MSM, CNN, anything with the word Washington in front of it or .gov at the end of it… they’re all well know to be fake.

    • VMSmithe

      Not a ‘nothing story’.
      People need to be reminded often of the low levels to which the left will go to to destroy anyone who disagrees with them. Not everyone has the time to research a story, they count on writers to be honest. That’s not too much to ask.

  • cwat

    The New York Times completely ignored the leaked memos/emails from George Soros. So, apparently, they can not be used as the measuring stick of what is “real news.”

  • party-defender-slayer

    do not paste, or repeat, anything from, Salon, Vox, Yahoo news, Huff Post, Washington Post, NYT, CSM, Reuters, AP, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, and you may be alright. PS. I never mentioned CNN, because it is good joke material. I also never said to avoid reading liberal news media– if I had, I would be a guilty of censored information. Thats a liberal mentality.

    • Gideon Waxfarb

      Add Breitbart and a host of conservative blogs to that list too. In short, do not post ANYTHING on social media that is remotely controversial, until/unless you have confirmed it from multiple sources.

  • jnsesq

      From this Site, tooly boy-

      The Ten Principles

      Every human being has equal value and dignity
      We are inherently and specifically social.
      Marriage and the family are the fundamental social institutions.
      We can know God and moral truth.
      Judeo-Christian religious faith guards our freedom.
      We’re all sinners.
      We need a state strong enough to protect and maintain the rule of law but limited enough not to violate it.
      We are meant to be free and responsible.
      When we’re free, we can create wealth and value.
      Culture comes before politics.

      Not a bad platform, I’d say. But then again, most proggies like you have no discernment, so it’s lost on you.

  • JBRoux

    If it seems too good or too bad to be true, it may be. Don’t take the hook, just do you own research. If it’s news, look for legit news sites carrying the story. We can’t blame the left for nefarious activities, it’s in their creed. Ends justify means.

  • Guest

    Most often, it’s paid per post trolls who post links to phony sites and they post the links on different conservative site comment sections.

  • RightStuff44

    These fake sites are the reason that the numb-and-dumb Hillary followers think that all the REAL scandal that surrounds Hillary is just a bunch of made-up rumors. Conservatives, having some discernment, reject the false stuff.

  • Frank

    “…some are run by Democrats in order to make conservatives look like
    radical extremists. The strategy, an insider told me, is to fool so many
    conservatives into spreading a ridiculous, fake article that finally a
    prominent elected official falls for it. Then the left pounces on the
    official and makes them look foolish and/or an extremist.”

    HAHA!! So Rachel Alexander

  • 57Bootsy

    I think anybody who reads news sites, and has done so for more than 10 minutes, knows how to check to verify before sharing. If you can’t prove its legit, move on.

  • rayg

    If the New York Times isn’t breaking some huge story, it is pretty much status quo especially if it might make Hillary or Democrats look bad. You need a more plausible example.

  • stevepidge

    This article assumes that fake news does not already exist.

  • Crowdkontrol

    This is actually a serious problem with the media in general. It seems like less and less fact checking is important if it fits a narrative. It’s so bad that nobody believes anything, but what they want to believe which is the worst when you can’t even agree if the Earth is round. It started with climate change, 911, and got followed with 08 reminder of just how much the taxpayer is valued by financial elite.

    What you have today is extremely low confidence in the establishment as they have proved to be too human, too fickle, too greedy, enevitably valuing themselves above all else. In other words too stupid to do their jobs right and too arrogant to even realize it.

  • David Collins

    More evidence that liberalism is a mental disorder that will lie, cheat, steal and commit fraud to advance its candidates and agenda. Anyone who calls themselves a liberal or supports the democrats is making themselves a per se liar, cheat and fraud. Liberalism is basically a religion, it seems.

  • Computer

    Not sure what the point of making fake conservative news sites. We already get our news from trusted sites. The only thing I can see coming from this is pansy liberals in HuffPo circle-jerk commenting sections citing this material as “proof” of how “stupid” conservatives are and if that’s the case it really makes no difference.

  • LordElrond09

    Heck, most of the left wing news outlets are fake media organizations so one could argue that anything we quote from ANY lefty news side is a fake news article

    Wrong! Nixon and his associates did this sort of thing to the Democrats. Watch the movie, “All the President’s Men.”

    These are highly developed strategies to trash their opposition. Here, in Nevada during the primaries, we had people trying to discourage Trump supporters from voting. In one meeting, the speaker told everyone that finding the location for voting was next to impossible. I found my voting location using my smartphone in 3 minutes. I mentioned this during the meeting. The speaker got very nervous and suggested we discuss this after the meeting. No discussion occurred.

    This is a very elaborate system of voter disenfranchisement. It is NOT always some lone cruel bully.

      • Self_Destruction

        I don’t even know if you can call it liberal lemmings. Lemmings are lemmings. I find it really interesting seeing something like the Wisconsin Fair race attacks and look it up on MSNBC. Locally it is there in Wisconsin. You use MSNBC site search and simply cannot find it.

Credibility could be an issue since I am assuming the news is factual and ignoring the potential of bias. There could be more to the issue then what was released.

Although lame-stream media wants all to believe that everyone is in the tank for barry and the witch (over-sized government w/ no checks and balances) it’s just not true.

  • Suaso

    This is a game that doesn’t play both ways. False stories that Conservatives may latch onto can later be exposed to shame Conservatives for believing. this first requires a lying Progressive Liberal to come up with the false story. The average Conservative isn’t wired to create false stories even for the intent of fooling a Liberal. Even so, if such stories were devised by Conservatives to fool liberals, the Liberals would simply continue spreading the lie even after learning it wasn’t true. For Liberals, repeating the lie long enough makes it true.

    • ranwolf76

      then explain the “Planned Parenthood are selling baby body parts” story conservative kept spreading months after the story was proven false.

        planned parenthood AKA the African American Population Reduction Program.

        • ranwolf76

          yeah, because the video wasn’t proven to be heavily edited…

          • Amau Thomas

            Ranwolf76 You are correct! The video was not heavily edited whatever that really means. It was a series of videos put together into one video so, define heavily edited versus lightly versus none when it comes to assembling a video. More importantly, there was a disclaimer that told people what was “edited” for television and length but not factual information.

        • Amau Thomas

          Lib_Thinker Don’t know if you’re interested or have seen any discussions on International Planned Parenthood and the “noble” works in Haiti and Africa. They have been strongly supported by the Clinton Foundation in creating and funding clinics that do help with birth control products (that’s fine in my opinion) but most importantly they provide other “services” to the citizens. They spoke proudly on one site that I went to about their Mobile Sterilization Team in Haiti. I haven’t looked into it more yet but it sounds like a science fiction story.

      • Wayne Cook

        that Ranny boy, was proven true…by both PP and their clients…stop being obtuse,

          is that why PP was cleared, but the people who made the video were indicted?

          • Amau Thomas

            ranwolf Stay tuned for additional PP issues in the not too distant future. As far as the video makers and their indictment, you should look up the reason they were indicted and the outcome of the trial.

It’s not these satire or even fale news sites who are to blames for the spreading of misinformation; it’s morons who share things without even fully reading the article/story and without doing a quick, simple internet search to check the validity of what they’ve just read, before sharing.

      Theses billion dollar profit per year networks (lame-stream media) are starting to realize that they have just about 0 credibility with US citizens.

    • Jess Mee

      Good luck with that. So may people are so entangled in their hatred of Obama/Hillary/Democrats/liberals that they just swallow every story they hear, no matter how ridiculous or absurd or outright stupid it may be. I wonder if some sites just want to see how far they can go in their “news” before even the most rabid can’t swallow it.

      • Amau Thomas

        Jess Mee The same things also happen with people seeking to find the magic talisman that will destroy Trump. Elections in the past have been nasty to watch but in comparison to this election, they were like a walk in the park. It seems worthy of debate whether our social media sites and their widening of the divisions between people are beneficial, both in general and for our election process.

        • Cynthia Brown Christ

          The truth is Trumps policies, beliefs and values are so clearly wrong for the liberal voter that we did not need a magic talisman or to look deeply to find anything that would destroy Trump.

          Trump’s beliefs, and values were aimed right at the heart of conservative values, and voters. Most of us are in shock, we feel hopeless for our country, our people, our place in the world where everybody in every other country sees the truth, and knows what we stand for now is not what we claimed for many decades.

          Most of us had concerns for some of the things that Hillary stands for. I know nobody who blindly followed her, or pledge unwavering love and support for her.

          I could really understand if the voters for Trump did so reluctantly, or with reservation or because of deeply committed values on abortion and anti-gay’s. But I am ashamed to be an
          american among those Trump lovers who have not one bone of discernment in their body! Not one reservation. Not one thing they care to realize, or mention that concerns them.

          That is a dumbed down electorate.

          I just purchased a book on Spiritual Activism, and will work even harder for the organizations that care for the causes that I deeply believe in. But I am also searching for a country to retire in that has voters who actual care for and live a life taught to us by Christ and most of the other great prophets.

  • Michael Anderson

    Any evidence that it is the “left” behind WND and other sites you’ve listed elsewhere? The headline on this piece doesn’t match the content, and Gawker doesn’t belong to the category of sites to which you are referring. There is a very interesting story to be written about these sites, but you need to report on what you are here only speculating about.

    • johnmcc

      Did you even read the article?

    • Cynthia Brown Christ

      no evidence. On the contrary the research I did, indicated that the sites mentioned were created and are owned by conservative people.

      • And this research you allegedly did…surely you can cite a couple of your sources, right?

  • Shae Weatherall

    It’s very ironic as well as negligent and libelous that this site would publish a list of “fake” news sources without verifying each site’s veracity first.

    • Wayne Cook

      Not ironic at all. Remember the IRS illegally publishing the contact info of thousands of people who had supported conservative causes?

      Fakery has been the cause du jour of the left for the last two decades.

      • Cynthia Brown Christ

        You are clearly unaware of the truth, and have no real real world knowledge, and most likely are more comfortable blaming “the other” than attempting to learn anything new.

        This article on fake liberals was a lie created by fake right wing journalists.

        The web pages cited as liberal deviousness – are owned and operated by CONSERVATIVES.

        In addition the site most quoted in this article has a link under their about us tab called disclosure – telling its ignorant readers who cannot see satire when it is presented to them – that THIS PAGE IS NOT TRUTHFUL. Like the Onion the stories are meant to be funny!

        So what can we conclude? Obviously, you appear to be unable to make conclusions based on obvious information. BOTH LEFTIES AND RIGHTIES are engaging in lies, and fakery to get us to fight among ourselves, rather than pay attention to the laws, and policies they are enacting which ultimately will screw our nation, make us weaker, allow corporations to rape all our natural resources, make the lives of regular folks have a lower and lower standard of living.

        If we attempted to carefully research and source our information – and realize that the truth is a sacred and essential commodity that we must search for – like the Holy Grail, while dismissing that the US and THEM are the voters who vote differently – but rather we are the SAME – THE OTHER IS them – OUR POLITICAL LEADERS!

        • God, you were SO CLOSE! Then you cited the Evil Corporations® and your whole argument fell apart.

  • johnmcc

    Its funny, they can’t beat us on the issues, so they have to plant fake stories to try and rope a dope conservatives into re-posting and promoting the stories only to then be called gullible and stupid for believing them. Don’t worry… won’t work… we’re smarter than you are.

    • Cynthia Brown Christ

      This article is a blantant lie. I posted a highly detailed link to factual information.

      And you know what – if the left was creating bogus website news pages – and your people didn’t vet them – because you are obviously too lazy to do so yourself – it would be only the fault of the reader of the lies for not vetting his sources.

      You say that we cannot beat you on the issues. The absolute truth is that the issues that the left value are quite different than the issues that the left values.

      There is no “beating each other.” There once was an effective government that got stuff done – by reaching across the isle, working together – for the greater good and security of the future of democracy for our children and their children.

      Now your leaders, and Fox News has trained you to focus on hating us. This division among voters is how they are deceiving us, and taking away the assets of this great nation right in front of our faces.

      It is not the liberals that ruined this country. It is not the conservatives. It is the lies that have been propagated by influential people who are benefiting by dumbing us all down, and making a whole lot of people value really hateful, irrelevant issues, while not thinking twice about the important things that actually reflect a people with values.

      The sure way I know that a poster is an unknowledgeable voter without knowledge of the truth, and reality of our times is when they use the word “libtard, or “republitard” while casting blame to them for things that couldn’t possible been done without bi-partisan involvement.

      • “There once was an effective government that got stuff done” No there wasn’t. Not on these shores. Now they got lots of stuff done in the Soviet Union and China. Lots of stuff. But here in these united States we’ve always been at odds with each other. It’s the way the Framers framed it.

    Background brief:

    The Smith-Mundt *Modernization* Act of 2012 (passed as part of the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act) went into effect on July 2, 2013. It allows the CIA to *officially* flood America with government propaganda.

    The original Smith-Mundt Act, passed in 1948 as the national security state was taking shape, authorized the State Department to unleash a tidal wave of propaganda outside the United States while supposedly forbidding its dissemination inside the country.

    But, despite the promise of the Smith-Mundt Act – that a firewall stands between foreign and domestic propaganda – the CIA, throughout its entire 69 year history, never has honored its charter (prohibiting domestic operation) and has, instead, consistently used the corporate media as a propaganda machine in the US.

    CIA office memos released under FOIA revealed the placement of ‘important assets’ inside every major news organization in the country. This cozy relationship was revealed by Frank Church and the Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities in 1975. It was not until 1982 that the CIA openly admitted that reporters on the CIA payroll have acted as case officers to agents in the field.

    • Cynthia Brown Christ

      The sickest thing is that stuff like this is getting passed all the time by the corrupt elected officials on both sides. And that there is no press for even one politician to go to to give the scoops to, because the american press no longer has integrith. They are told what to report on, and they seem only to care about their hair, big salaries, and fluffy pieces.

      It is one of the first things that signal the downfall of an empire – no care in the truth, disrespect for the media. It allows the lies to be believed, which makes the people brainwashed idiots – ready to do the fodder of authoritative, dictators – think Hitler (Trumps favorite author – BTW), and master of propaganda.

  • Dave

    Perhaps conservatives would not be so gullible if their own news outlets posted the truth once in a while. When sites like WND, infowars, CNS and Breitbart are considered truthful in your world, that sets a low bar for such theatrics. According to those sites Obama is a gay muslim who was born in kenya, and his wife is actually his male lover in drag. So yeah, if you can believe that kind of stuff, you can probably believe just about anything.

    • BHOs_Gotta_Go

      • Dave

        I am not publishing an article, so I have no obligation to cite sources. Besides, are you really going to deny that those things are said about the president all the time? Every one is demonstrably false. WND, specifically cited in the article, is chief among the birther sites. Their top headline today is about a coughing fit hillary supposedly had. Another is about how the Spacex rocket may have been sabotage. They exist to spread BS. They are no more truthful than satire, and the other sites mentioned are the same.

        At least fox news has the pretense of real journalism, though they are nearly as bad. And no, I am not a fan of CNN or MSNBC, they are just as crappy. But there are real sources available, just not WND, CNS or breitbart.

      • Thatguythatknowsstuff

        I actually posted a rebuttal to this article on WND and it was removed. In fact not one of the responses from disqus was disagreeing with the author, this is obvious censorship and not an example of non-bias, honest journalism.

        Banned excerpt:
        “This article is hilarious. The most egregious creator and distributor of fake news is by far and away is Brietbart and the Blaze. Both air false and misleading stories daily that spread through social media and spam mail like wildfire. Conveniently this article ignores these obvious liars and tries to blame the stories on unsubstantiated claims that liberals are creating the sites to make conservatives look stupid.

          • lukuj

            What! We have proof of more lies Hillary has told than we have proof of Trump lies. At least Trump didn’t lie to the parents of murdered patriots, at least his emails couldn’t have led directly or indirectly of people when his unsecure server was hacked. I could go on and on and on. Maybe you need to sit and read Wikileaks for a few hours. It turned my stomach. Even those in Hillary’s campaign talk about what an awful person she is and how she can’t be trusted to know what she is doing. How revealing that is!

  • honesttoGod

    Well, I’ll be. The Stream calling for its readers to check out the truth of things before they repost, and blaming the Left (!?!) for the fact that conservatives will repost the most ridiculous stuff imaginable. Goodness. A vast left wing conspiracy to make right wingers look foolish by nefarious means… like letting them talk. The reason that folk do that is that there is a constant drumbeat– and The Stream is one of the drummers (like saying to look at Snopes, but saying in the same breath that it is biased toward the left)– that all media and opinion outside the right wing echo chamber is not just couched in a perspective (what statement is not?) but is slanted, and really, just a downright lie. Truly, what crosses the line for you? For his entire Presidency, Obama has had his citizenship denied, has been called a Muslim, a terrorist, supporter the Muslim Brotherhood, and coming around to get your guns tomorrow, the day after tomorrow at the latest. When has this site critiqued these criticisms which make the right look like straight up kooks to most of America? And don’t tell me that you don’t say those things– you have a moderated comments page, and those with much worse and more inflammatory (and even nuttier) stuff is posted here everyday. Clean up your own house– that might make you look sincere and truthful yourselves. I ain’t holding my breath, though.

  • honesttoGod

    Your appeal seems to be falling on deaf ears (and blind eyes). Everything that disagrees with their position is “fake” news. So, The Stream, they will keep right on posting nutty stuff from right wing sites, because the real news sources are “fake.” As I said in my earlier post, you helped create this situation. It’s your bed to sleep in.

    ” Even more nefarious, some are run by Democrats”
    And the evidence is coming from an nameless “insider”. News for you, breitbart is the biggest creator of fake news. Liberals don’t need to make up B.S. for conservatives to look like fools, they do a fine job on their own.

      No, CNN/MSNBC/ABC/CBS lie constantly, just like Breitbart does.
      It is all propaganda and you are just another sucker.

    Snopes?!? NOPES! It is run by left wing hacks and no more creditable than MSNBC or the NYT given their blatant bias.

    Oh the stream has to approve of my last posting. Anybody want to bet they don’t allow views that actually are well researched,and proove that All Americans are soon going to be no better than Stepford Wives if they don’t wake up.

    Since when has World Nut Daily been a legitimate news source? They are one of the worst offenders of fake news. And while we’re talking about fake news sites , Town Hall , and Rightwing News also regularly print garbage.

    What a great smear campaign! CNN was handing off debate questions to HRC. MSNBC/CBS/ABC/CNN all lied about Sanders knowingly. Where is their “fake news” status??
    Not to mention your own fake news status! Damn hypocrite propagandist.

  • “conservatives are tricked into sharing have been planted by the left to make fools of us.”

    So shouldn’t conservatives stop making it so easy to be made fools of?

    What really pisses me off about both sides of the political landscape is how dead set they are that their side is right and the other side is wrong, yet neither side knows squat about the other! Quick conservatives, explain the difference between a republic and a democracy. No plagiarism allowed.

    Yeah that’s what I thought.
