NYT Suggests CNN, BuzzFeed
Peddled "Fake News"

Zero Hedge, by Tyler Durden

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2017 8:52:28 AM

In a fascinating retort by the NYT to the story of the day, namely the CNN-BuzzFeed narrative based on an unverified 35-page memo allegedly prepared by a UK intelligence officer, even the paper of record takes the two media outlets to town, and in an article titled "BuzzFeed Posts Unverified Claims on Trump, Stirring Debate" essentially accuses them of doing what CNN has accused so much of the ´alternative media´ in doing when distributing "fake news." Here are the key excerpts: The reports by CNN and Buzzfeed sent other news organizations, including The New York Times and The Washington Post,

You know it´s really, really bad when the NYT is calling them out for fake news. If even they didn´t buy into it you know there´s something really wrong about this. People should be fired for this outrageous, defamatory behavior!

No hesitation on it from NPR!

Mentioned it was from a "private firm", and then did not name the firm, but they got Al Franken on the air about it!

Stay classy NPR!!

"Fake news" is created, peddled and BELIEVED by the very same donkeys that are braying night and day about it.

What a strange time in which we live.

For the good of the country, the media needs to lay off this story. Not that I think they will.

It is absolutely hilarious that the disgraced presstitute Julia Ioffe -- she of the "incest with Ivanka" slur -- now sanctimoniously says "Raise your hand if you too were approached with this story." If the enemedia had any integrity, they would both identify the "MI6" author of the "dossier" and disclose who has been trying for months and months to peddle this fake news to them. Don´t hold your breath.

Now, the Enemedia sharks begin to bite off chunks of each other in the feeding frenzy. Blood in the water, but it is their own.

Fun to see, and not harming Trump at all, but they are shredding the Enemedia and their Fake News machines.

A very OLD Supreme Court decision forbad taxation of the press stating, ´the power to tax is the power to destroy´. But that rightfully was an expression of First Amendment rights belonging to the press. This current ´fake news´ political abuse of that privilege should rightfully be called entertainment. If a news outlet cannot back up its content it should be taxed the same as movies or comic books. THAT would quickly restore responsible behavior to our ´free press´.

With midnight regulation, Obama Energy
Department just outlawed your three-way bulb
Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/19/2017 9:29:36 PM     Post Reply
In the last full day of the Obama administration, the Department of Energy just issued a final rule that will outlaw even more light bulbs. The 2007 light bulb ban in effect outlawed most incandescent light bulbs by imposing efficiency standards on ordinary light bulbs. Congress exempted a few types of light bulbs, including bug lights, three-way bulbs, "rough service lamps," and some decorative bulbs, such as globe-shaped bulbs. But that law gave DOE the right to expand the class of bulbs covered by the mandates. In a new rule published today, DOE redefined the words in the law, "general service lamp,"

George Soros: Trump Is a ‘Would-Be

Thursday in Davos, Switzerland, at the the World Economic Forum speaking with Bloomberg’s Francine Lacqua, Soros Fund Management Chairman George Soros said President-elect Donald Trump is “an imposter and con man and would-be dictator.” Soros said, “I’ve described him as an imposter and con man and would-be dictator, but he is only a would-be dictator. The Constitution and institutions of the United States are strong enough, the division of power is in operation. He would be a dictator if he could get away with it. But he won’t be able to.” Discussing the markets, he added, “It is impossible to predict exactly

Reporters apologized for spreading a bogus New York Times hit piece on Rick Perry Thursday, after new facts came to light that completely undermined the central assertion of the story. “I’m about to delete this tweet, which spread the rumor about Perry not knowing what energy sec does,” New York Magazine writer Jesse Singal tweeted, referring to an earlier tweet sharing the story. “I think it’s false.” The New York Times reports Perry had no clue the energy secretary is in charge of safeguarding the nuclear arsenal when he accepted the nomination for the position in Donald Trump’s administration.

On the eve of President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, singer Barbra Streisand pens an essay for the Huffington Post in which she writes that she “cannot respect” the new president and is “deeply concerned” for the direction of the country. Streisand writes in the Huffington Post: There have been giants who served as president: George Washington helped found the country; Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves; Teddy Roosevelt established the national parks; Franklin Roosevelt pulled us out of The Great Depression and defeated fascism; Lyndon Johnson established Medicare; Bill Clinton gave the nation a budget surplus; and Barack Obama provided access to

President Obama logged his final world-leader phone call Thursday, thanking German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her husband, Joachim Sauer, “for their personal friednship” and partnership, the White House announced. Michelle Obama joined her husband on the phone call, according to a readout from the White House. “The President thanked Chancellor Merkel for her strong, courageous, and steady leadership,” the statement added. Merkel is up for re-election this year, trying to avoid a wave of nationalism that has swayed elections in Europe and the US. “Given their eight years of friendship and partnership, the President noted that it was fitting that

For her first inaugural weekend appearance Thursday afternoon, Melania Trump dressed with respect in joining the president-elect for a wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. Wearing a Norisol Ferrari military-inspired knee-length coat and coordinating sheath dress, the incoming first lady’s ensemble was meant to pay homage to American military service members. The occasion was particularly meaningful for the New York City designer whose biological father is a wounded veteran who sustained lifelong disabilities in the line of service. In an interview Thursday, Ferrari said her first thought Thursday morning was, “God, I hope we can be a less angry

The protests are being organized by the Alliance to Reclaim our Schools. On its website, it details the plan: — A rally at a school, or district offices calling for more

28% of federal employees may
quit their jobs when Trump
assumes office: Poll

Almost two-thirds of federal employees voted for Hillary Clinton during the presidential election, according to a new survey. The poll also found that six of 10 felt that the election itself gave Americans a negative impression of federal service. So it may come as no surprise that some federal employees are considering leaving their employment when President-elect Donald Trump assumes office. “More than one in four federal workers, or 28 percent, will definitely or possibly consider leaving their jobs after Jan. 20 when Trump is sworn into office and becomes leader of the executive branch,” according to the survey conducted

President Obama issued a farewell warning to President-elect Donald Trump, saying he would jump off the political sidelines if Trump goes against certain ´core values.´ At his last scheduled news conference before leaving office on Friday, Obama said if there was ´systemic discrimination,´ efforts to ´silence dissent´ or to ´roll back voting rights,´ he would be ´speaking out.´ It was among his most activist descriptions of his next act, and indicates Obama may be rethinking his post-presidency role and heeding the urgings of some activists to play a stronger function in the leaderless Democratic Party as it navigates the Trump

In the first days of 2017, Washington D.C. was empty. It was a city holding its breath. Secret Service police officers in balaclavas waited at the White House as a black SUV carrying departing staffers passed. It had not been so long ago that they came into the city as if they owned it and the entire country. Now the same men and women who ran and ruined the lives of millions were scrolling through job postings on their smartphones. They watched Obama speak from faded screens at sports bars and they cried. They knew it was coming. Day 1. The parties

With the announcement that he was nominating former Georgia governor Sonny Perdue to lead the Department of Agriculture, Donald Trump´s Cabinet is complete. There´d been rumors that Trump was looking to find a Hispanic candidate to fill the position, but that didn´t happen. Which means, as our Ed O´Keefe notes, that Trump´s is the first Cabinet since 1980 in which no member is Hispanic. That´s interesting in part because the country itself has gotten so much more diverse since Ronald Reagan was elected. In 1980, about 6 percent of the population was Hispanic and about 80 percent of the country

This is it, the last full day of President Barack Obama’s tenure. Damn, it feels better than I thought it would. Forgive my smile as I type. As President Obama makes his way out the door like a drunk who has been tossed from a bar and is determined to smash every glass on his way out, it’s important to take a moment to reflect upon all the good he’s done while he occupied 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Yes, you read that right – thank you, President Obama. No man has done more to both discredit Democrats and elect Republicans than he has over

Hillary Clinton fans are urging her to make a political comeback after a poll showed how she would trounce Bill de Blasio in a hypothetical race for New York Mayor. Clinton, who has given no indication she will run for office again, won 49 percent of the hypothetical vote over de Blasio´s 29 in the survey. The poll sparked calls among her fans to revive her political career. They started a ´Hillary for Mayor´ hashtag on Twitter and told de Blasio to ´watch out´. The poll, conducted by Quinnipiac University, asked: ´If the election for Mayor were being held today, and the candidates

With less than 48 hours left as First Lady, Michelle Obama spent much of her day on Wednesday soaking up the White House before she is forced to move out. First, she walked through its halls with family dogs Bo and Sunny, sharing a video of their jaunt on Twitter. The stroll appears to have ended in the Executive Residence where Mrs Obama cuddled up to her husband to take in the view from the Truman balcony for one of the last times. She shared a photograph of the special moment on social media to thank fans for their support, writing alongside it:
