Epic – Very Fake News CNN Host Don Lemon Cuts Interview When CNN Called “Fake News”…

The term “Lyin’ Ted” stuck, because Ted Cruz lied.  The term “Little Marco” stuck because Marco Rubio belittled himself.  The term “Crooked Hillary” stuck because Hillary Clinton was crooked… etc.  The truism within the behavior is what embeds the term.

Similarly the multi-million brand of CNN is following the same path with the term “Fake News”; and the more they put fake news into their broadcasts, the more it sticks.  If you want to know how self-aware CNN executives are that this term is factually killing their reputation, you only need to see the desperation of CNN to try and avoid it.

Cue Don Lemon:

“Fake News” isn’t just false news, it’s also the intentional manipulative manufacturing of actual news to create false narratives. Ergo, “very fake news”.

    I don’t like Lemon defining “fake news”. To me, Fake News is sometimes completely untrue stories or unverified stories or half true stories or stories inspired by real events but actually not the reality of the situation. Fake News is not just False News, Inaccurate News or Purposefully Lying News. Fake News does not have to be the opposite of reality, a clear cut lie, to qualify as Fake News.

    Fake News is All of the above but more often Fake News takes a quote and makes a story up that is not there based on the quote. The Quote is real, or the Opinion of Someone is Real but the spin results in an alternate reality news that is created via liberal, biased, agenda driven spin. They will spin a Nothing into headlines and hours of air time. They will do so with body language, tone and facial expressions that are Not “just” reporting the news but that are intended to come across as Official and that this is Real. MOST Of their reporting of reality is a parallel reality that they attempt to create via Fake News.

    We can watch the press conference for ourselves, read the facts and Know that they are spinning like a whirling dervish, trying to create a dust storm from nothing. They are now frustrated at President Trump’s ability to calm the winds and speak reality into their narratives.

        Donnyboy, just gave us a fake definition of fake news. Excuse me, I call them Liars fabricating All the so-called News of the Day we can Lie about. And do not go on The Liars News Network unless you are a really good liar. CNN will be vetting only liars on their station to give their opinion. Call it like it is, stop being politically correct, if we are, we are Liars also.

          Back in 1980, I voted for Jimmy Carter KNOWING he was a bust as a president, that the USA was in the doldrums, that the economy was a mess because I believed the media when they informed me Reagan (Ray-Gun) was going to start World War III, put women back in second class status and reverse civil rights for the blacks. Yes, they were just as uncorked then as they are now — it’s just there was no alternative news. Once Reagan won, became (until now) my favorite president, I saw the light. I turned against the MSM like a duck on a June bug and believed NOTHING they reported. NOTHING! Had they told me the earth was round, I’d have joined the Flat Earth Society. There are people out there now — people like me in 1982, watching what’s happening and watching what’s being reported and they’re catching on just as I did. And they’ll come away just as I did of never believing the media again.

          The media’s feeding frenzy right now is understandable. They understand that they are on the cusp of losing everyone except the dedicated Left (many of whom don’t watch the news anyway only march as they’re instructed by their community organizer). But, as in sharks’ feeding frenzies, the crazed shark will sometimes gut itself and then eat its own intestines. That’s what the media is doing right now. The smart ones will catch on — a few have already — but the Don Lemons will continue to eat their own guts.

          The big surprise to me this year was Fox News. I thought I was cynical enough NOT to be taken in, but until that first debate, I WAS taken in. I couldn’t understand their antipathy to Donald Trump, however, until that first debate it didn’t occur to me that they were part of the DC Establishment — the distaff side that was supposed to keep us focused on he “little things” (taxes, education, abortion) while the Republicans in the House and Senate (Ryan and McConnell) focused on joining the Democrats on the “big things” (open borders, amnesty, one world government).

      • It’s what they do! They set definitions for their agenda.


    • kathyca says:

      He was actually using the definition of defamation under Sullivan v. NYT. According to Lemon, it’s not fake news unless you intentionally lie. Which just goes to show you that CNN is okay with saying absolutely anything and pushing an agenda (as opposed to being journalists) so long as they can’t be found liable for defamation. That’s why Trump wants to change the defamation standard back to what it was before that stupid case.

    CNN attempts to establish their false narrative by having a panel of so-called “experts” (read Marxist liberal political hacks) offering their opinion, without presenting any facts, data, etc… thereby giving the viewer the impression that it must be true…. when actually, it’s not… In a nutshell, they use the old “perception vs. reality” tactic to perpetuate the lie…

The BBC clip with Gorka and the interviewer asks what measures President Trump plans to take against the press, implying that he will actually try to use law reduce freedom of the press, something he did not say, is a great example. They are asking questions to plant seeds, to shape the reality/perception of all of those listening. They are trying to Make the news v. reporting on the actual accomplishments, issues and statements made by the Trump Administration.

This is probably* the first time they ever mentioned Obama’s vacations and it was only done so that they could call Trump a hypocrite. They still didn’t mention BHO’s > $85M vacation bill paid for by us. (* In the interest of full disclosure, note that I haven’t watched every minute of CNN for the last 8 years so it’s just an opinion on my part based on their bias – I am not a ‘news’ source 😉

    And since the subject was Mar-a-Lago I think it’s fine that the president goes there all the time. The same with Trump towers. While both probably present challenges for the secret service. Continual use of them probably make easier over time for the secret service to keep the president safe.

    Here’s some interesting info on information warfare from Professor George Stein of AWC–thought it was kind of interesting that it even goes to mention CNN and the Hollywood technologies that are now available. –Makes me think of all the staged events we’ve been seeing in recent years (CNN staging photo of Syrian kid in ambulance, staging of photo of refuge kid washed ashore in Europe to make Europeans feel sympathy, and staged photos of rescues in Syria by PR group White Helmets)


    It’s important to keep in mind what Professor George J. Stein wrote in his 1995 essay “Information Warfare”:

    Information warfare, in its largest sense, is simply the use of information to achieve our national objectives. Like diplomacy, economic competition, or the use of military force, information in itself is a key aspect of national power and, more importantly, is becoming an increasingly vital national resource that supports diplomacy, economic competition, and the effective employment of military forces. Information warfare in this sense can be seen as societal-level or nation-to-nation conflict waged, in part, through the worldwide internetted and interconnected means of information and communication. […]

    Information warfare, in its essence, is about ideas and epistemology- big words meaning that information warfare is about the way humans think and, more important, the way humans make decisions. And although information warfare would be waged largely, but not entirely, through the communication nets of a society or its military, it is fundamentally not about satellites, wires, and computers. It is about influencing human beings and the decisions they make. […]

    A major new factor in information war is the worldwide infosphere of television and broadcast news. Information warfare at the strategic level is the “battle off the battlefield” to shape the political context of the conflict. It will define the new “battlespace.” We face an “integrated battlefield,” not in the usual sense of having a global positioning system (GPS) receiver in every tank or cockpit but in the Clausewitzian sense that war is being integrated into the political almost simultaneously with the battle. Many people suspect that the national command authorities (NCA) are in danger of becoming increasingly “reactive” to a “fictive” universe created by CNN, its various international competitors, or even a terrorist with a video camera. This media-created universe we live in is fictive rather than “fictional” because although what we see on CNN is “true,” it is just not the whole, relevant, or contextual truth. Nevertheless, this fictive universe becomes the politically relevant universe in which the government or the armed forces are supposed to “do something.” […]

    Fictive or fictional operational environments, then, whether mass-targeted or niche-targeted, can be generated, transmitted, distributed, or broadcast by governments or all sorts of players through increasingly diversified networks. […]

    Let us take just one example of how current technologies could be used for strategic-level information warfare. If, say, the capabilities of already well-known Hollywood technologies to simulate reality were added to our arsenal, a genuinely revolutionary new form of warfare would become possible. Today, the techniques of combining live actors with computer-generated video graphics can easily create a “virtual” news conference, summit meeting, or perhaps even a battle that would exist in “effect” though not in physical fact. Stored video images can be recombined or “morphed” endlessly to produce any effect chosen. This moves well beyond traditional military deception, and now, perhaps, “pictures” will be worth a thousand tanks. […]

    When we put this into perspective- Trump is incurring travel expenses for himself/family while honestly striving to improve security, wealth, freedom for our entire nation. Obama’s, on the other hand were traveling in excess with friends/family for their own personal enjoyment. The media never squawked about that.

      He brushes himself off and walks on. But a few feet down the celestial highway, John Marshall steps into the road and slugs him, then proceeds to beat the crap out of him. Marshall disappears.
      Shaking and frighting, Blind Sheikh dusts himself off and goes on, trying to reach the celestial harem. A few more feet and Thomas Jefferson appears and he, too, beats the dickens out of the Sheikh, then disappears.
      This goes on. When he finally reaches Allah, he asks what’s going on in Paradise to which Allah replies, “Weren’t you listening? I told you 72 Virginians were going to be waiting for you.”

Come to think of it , just like all their poles during election season from primary right to Trumps election . Remember the bitch ? ” why aren’t I fifty points ahead you might ask” yeah she was only twenty points up by some fake news reports and poles. These same globalist banksters are still at it lies lies and more lies. America is waking up daily more people are realizing how the fake news are the enemy of truth and America .! That’s right
