    An Example of Fake News: Cryin' Chuck and Crazy Nancy

    This is supposedly a news story. It isn't. It is a liberal, Progressive propaganda piece.


    Pelosi questions Trump’s fitness to stay. He calls her crazy


    By LAURIE KELLMAN and ZEKE MILLER
    36 minutes ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi openly questioned President Donald Trump’s fitness to remain in office Thursday, suggesting a staff or family “intervention” for the good of the nation after his dramatic blow-up at a White House meeting with Democrats. Trump responded by calling her “crazy.”

    Neither Laurie nor Zeke were present. Crazy Nancy and Crying Chuck told the two leftist stenographers for the Democratic party what to write in the alleged news story.

    Other people who were present in the meeting say President Trump calmly walked in, told Cryin' Chuck and Crazy Nancy why he was postponing the meeting, then calmly walked out. Two minutes later a very calm President Trump held an impromptu press meeting.

    The AP is Fake News.

    Both the Republican president and Democratic leaders dug in a day after Trump stalked out of the Cabinet Room

    The AP is Fake News.

    Laurie and Zeke are hand puppets.

    You disagree with the subject but why is this Fake news?
    Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I digress....

    I made no claims about the story. I critiqued the very poor reporting in the so-called news article. Look at the bolded words. Then review my comments. If this was a class on reporting the news I would have failed both hand puppets.

    I guess it's not fake, just another example of the liberal partisan cheerleading we get from the vast majority of the American media.

    While it's not necessarily fake, it's not news either. It's editorializing an event and taking sides.

    It is the worst form of fake news. It mixes fact (news) and editorializing (propaganda).

    It is a lie.

    A fake story must be borne of total fabrication. No facts just a big lie. By this criteria it must be judged. Using Trumps word "fake" does not make it so.

    No. It is propaganda, Jim. When you leave the story you walk away with an image of Trump out of control. That is fake news. Propaganda.

    It means AP lacks journalistic standards.

    OK misreport then use that misreporting to editorialize for the purposes of satisfying a political agenda. Better?



    Which by the way, would qualify as propoganda.
