Ever since Hillary Clinton lost the election, so-called “mainstream” media journalists have pinned her defeat on “fake news sites”.
Liberal journalists claim these news sites published information in contradiction to the left-wing narrative the media tries to press upon voters is “fake”.
But Ron Paul just published a list of the real “fake news” news sites – and you won’t believe who made the list.
The Ron Paul Liberty Report wrote:
“We’ve seen the make-shift “fake news” list created by a leftist feminist professor. Well, another fake news list has been revealed and this one holds a lot more water.
This list contains the culprits who told us that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and lied us into multiple bogus wars. These are the news sources that told us “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” They told us that Hillary Clinton had a 98% of winning the election. They tell us in a never-ending loop that “The economy is in great shape!”
The Trump campaign certainly did expose a fake news media.
But the fraudulent news media came from CNN, MSNBC, Politico, New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC and CBS.
Wikileaks emails reveal “journalists” at these networks colluded with the Clinton campaign to leak debate questions, “tee up” stories, ask for questions to pose to Republican Presidential candidates, and run their work by Clinton campaign officials to make sure it matched the party line.
These outlets also published fake news pieces by lying to their readers about the true state of the race.
Their “journalists” published pieces mocking the Trump campaign’s claims that they could win.
Phillip Bump of the Washington Post published a fake news article, claiming a map that showed a path to a Trump victory, which was emailed to supporters by campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, was a “joke”.
The only problem is that the foundation of Conway’s argument — that map — is so bafflingly distant from reality that it’s hard to think this isn’t somehow an inside joke. “
Bump even lectured his readers about what the electoral map should look like.
He claimed Hillary would win Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
Bump concluded his piece by mocking the Trump campaign with sneering copy, saying he fully expected Trump to declare he still won the election, even after he had lost:
“But on Trump TV, viewers didn’t get any of this “spin.” They just got the unvarnished truth, straight from the people responsible for getting Trump into striking distance: Trump’s in striking distance. On Nov. 8, I fully expect Trump TV to say that Trump actually won.
After all, Conway said they would. Unequivocally.”
Another outlet that routinely published fake news about the Trump campaign was the New York Times.
On October 11th, the Times published an article claiming that it’s only the Trump fans who live in an alternate-reality bubble that believe he could win Pennsylvania:
“They dismissed the F.B.I.’s recommendation that Mrs. Clinton should not be prosecuted over her use of a private email server as secretary of state. They faulted the news media for not highlighting that Mrs. Clinton had deleted thousands of emails after receiving a congressional subpoena, as Mr. Trump charged in the debate.
Mike Pisano, 65, a factory worker, echoed Mr. Trump’s contention that Mrs. Clinton had escaped indictment because Bill Clinton had met privately with Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
“He was on the plane with her fixing that,” Mr. Pisano said.
Still, outside the bubble of such devoted followers, Mr. Trump’s prospects in northeastern Pennsylvania are less certain.”
The Times also ran “news” articles claiming a surge of Hispanic voters would bury Trump’s chances in Florida, North Carolina, and Arizona.
Trump won all three.
The paper’s data vertical and Upshot all published a daily tracker of the percentage likelihood a given candidate would win the race.
Clinton was routinely the favorite and even topped out at a 91% chance to win.
Trump’s campaign – and subsequent victory – has revealed the true “fake” news media.
It was the so-called “mainstream” media outlets that acted like political partisans and routinely lied to their audience.
And many believe it was a coordinated scheme to tip the election to Hillary Clinton.
