    But it is true gdf, every bit of news is getting passed through some type of filter. Its all shit all the time. I find very few articles telling the unbridled truth. Take the BS on the lower tax returns..that was all over the other day now that the story has flipped it's nowhere to be found. The only reason it was out there was to put stink on the tax cut.
    The reality is there is plenty enough true shit out there to tell but they won't because it paints the Democrats bad also so they don't they pick and choose.

    And as much as you hate it, it's a very relevant statement and I suspect that is what really burns your tail feathers

    Staining has nothing to do with it. Trump has used the term "false news". I simply provided a solid example of why he does that. Whether you like Trump or not has nothing to do with the efficacy of the comment.

    No, the last 7 words hammered the point home. I went to college for journalism 30 years ago, and the business was already full of people who were saying,"I want to be a reporter because I want to make a difference." Wrong, you go into journalism to report the truth. You want to make a difference? Become a teacher, or a doctor, or a cop, or - heaven help us - run for office. Now those idiots with their skewed sense of what the business is supposed to be about are running CNN, MSNBC, etc. "Fake news" is about defending an agenda, not reporting the truth.
