Wanna talk about fake news?

Sinclair's script for stations. Fake news media warning viewers about believing fake news. This is propaganda at its finest. This video keeps getting deleted from the webs.

Owner of three Utah TV stations orders anchors to read statement denouncing ‘fake news’

The Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns three television stations in Utah — KUTV, KJZZ and KMYU — is requiring its local news anchors to read on-air statements decrying “fake stories” on social media and “national media outlets,” according to CNN.

This is the latest move from the right-leaning media company that has ordered its stations to carry anti-Barack Obama infomercials, political commentary by former Donald Trump spokesman Boris Epshteyn and stories that promote a pro-Trump political agenda — including a Sinclair-produced “Terrorism Alert Desk.”

As you can see from the video it isn't just the Utah stations that are telling their viewers that.

with reporters from various local stations, across the country, describing the same 'story' almost word for word.

Very odd viewing. Suffice to say, I haven't watched local news (aside from weather alerts) for over 20 years.

So many of them have pretty much the same headline which tells me that that is what they want us focused on. This is more obvious since Russia Gate started. Assange exposed how most of the media owners and the big named anchors are members of the CFR. I posted a link in one of the essays here yesterday.

The donor class doesn’t want it, and Americans elect the bribed. So suck it up.

Humans must not submit to policing by machine.

corporate media like CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, Fox, etc. The problem is, they as well as Trump, infer their news or in Trump's case, Fox news, is not fake news. It's a battle of the corporate fake news organizations that support the duopoly and represent different factions of the oligarchy.

Fuck, thinking about the people who fall for this shit, it makes me think that saying, "you can't fix stupid", is right.

The following is why the Atlanticists hate Putin with a passion that knows no bounds. Russia was to have degenerated and disintegrated after the collapse of the USSR. Despite the outright rape and pillage of the nation in the 90's, Putin gathered the people and the few resources that had been left and rebuilt the country. It is now a proud and viable nation, strong and free, that puts many in the west to shame.

The Man Who Made Russia Great Again

In the discussion of the results of the Presidential elections in Russia, Sen. John McCain claimed the result was an insult to all Russians. Israel Shamir on the pages of The Unz Review claimed they were rigged just a little. Some pro-Western Russian critics argued that that the very fact that Putin received over 75 per cent of the vote proved that the election results was not normal, because in normal countries there usually are two candidates who run in close proximity and then follow in a run-off. In the view of this speaker, that in itself is proof of the democratic nature of elections.

The overall reaction of Western media is disbelief, suspicion of foul play or at best reluctant and cold reception of the fact. The smashing victory this landslide shows exactly the opposite. Russia is normal, rallied around its leader, and the West is in a deep domestic crisis. The run-off in France or close results in the USA or Germany or Italy are symptoms of a serious malaise or as one political scientist put it, turbulence in Western Democracy as a system.
...
When they were in power, the Westernizers, the friends of America, the free marketers, in the early 1990s, they plunged the country into shock therapy: prices skyrocketed, people lost their life savings. Factories closed, salaries were not paid, and starvation and poverty hit the country. Criminal gangs divided up the peoples’ property. A bunch of oligarchs privatized what was built over the Soviet years. Suddenly, there appeared huge corporations with Western participation that began to own Russian natural resources: Russian aluminum, steel, everything. Tens of billions of stolen assets were moved overseas through a myriad of off shore schemes. The Westernizer rulers of Russia proved themselves to be stooges of Western companies, thieves and robbers of natural resources. Elections showed a dozen parties of all kinds including for example the Love beer party. In the provinces, power was usurped by mafia bosses, criminal gangs, who terrorized opponents, killed journalists, turned kindergartens into private mansions, created private armies that disregarded local police. In some places they turned police into auxiliary criminal force.

The country descended into chaos, rape, murder skyrocketed, birthrate fell, pensions unpaid, education collapsed, army was taken over by a selling spree on a worldwide scale. Military plants stayed idle, and so many talented engineers left the country.
...
What Putin has accomplished or what Russia has accomplished since 2000 is astonishing. It amounts to a political, economic, and moral revolution. Any aspect of Russia’s existence you take, you see measurable progress. The standard of living has grown, pensions are payed, factories are working, and unemployment is lower than in most European countries. Life expectancy has steadily increased, birth rates have increased, and incomes have increased. Education is back, Russian research and development is back again, one of the best in the world and not staffed by foreigners who flock to Silicon valley, but staffed by Russians educated in Russia.

Military technology made a breakthrough of historical significance. For the first time ever Russia has weapons superior to those of the US, not to mention Britain, France and Germany combined.
...
So Russia under Vladimir the Savior has accomplished unimaginable. When I was young in the 1970s Soviet Union we dreamed of a Russia free from aging gerontocracy of Soviet regime, free from censorship, a country of freedom, prosperity and democracy. Well now the dream is pretty much come true. Russia is free and sovereign and proud and strong, everything one can dream of. One has to be either stupid or blind not to see it.

@CB with a list of accomplishments, like Putin's, but without identifying country or person, many people in our pseudo-democracies would be screaming for such a candidate. The Bear is going to put us in a bear hug. Take a deep breath.

Psychopathy is not a political position, whether labeled 'conservatism', 'centrism' or 'left'.

A tin labeled 'coffee' may be a can of worms or pathology identified by a lack of empathy/willingness to harm others to achieve personal desires.

but they will be crushed by their own stupidity, eventually.

All that was missing was Trump flags flying as they repeated their shtick.
