NYT Fumes After Conservative Media ‘Appropriated’ Fake News, Turned It Against MSM

Image result for fake news new york timesThe New York Times’s Jeremy W. Peters isn’t happy that conservatives took aim at the mainstream media after “appropriating the term” fake news and turned it against them.

He whined about it in the opening paragraphs of one of his latest pieces:

The C.I.A., the F.B.I. and the White House may all agree that Russia was behind the hacking that interfered with the election. But that was of no import to the website Breitbart News, which dismissed reports on the intelligence assessment as “left-wing fake news.”www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/new-york-times-toi..." alt="Image result for fake news new york times" class="align-right"/>

Rush Limbaugh has diagnosed a more fundamental problem. “The fake news is the everyday news” in the mainstream media, he said on his radio show recently. “They just make it up.”

Some supporters of President-elect Donald J. Trump have also taken up the call. As reporters were walking out of a Trump rally this month in Orlando, Fla., a man heckled them with shouts of “Fake news!”

Until now, that term had been widely understood to refer to fabricated news accounts that are meant to spread virally online. But conservative cable and radio personalities, top Republicans and even Mr. Trump himself, incredulous about suggestions that fake stories may have helped swing the election, have appropriated the term and turned it against any news they see as hostile to their agenda.

Peters said in doing so, conservative media has “dilute[d]” the original meaning and is “capitalizing on the declining credibility of all purveyors of information.”

The media is a total joke and they know it

I think Rush has the more accurate depiction of fake news, it's news that is simply made up by the mainstream media, yea you NYT. We all know from as far back as the Clinton administration that lying is ok if you receive the desired outcome.
What ever happened to journalists that investigated, researched and accurately reported a story regardless of the outcome?

New York Times Q3 profit plummets by 95.7 percent

This may have been reported last month, but it’s still joyous news to be spreading during the yuletide.

The New York Times Co. reported an astounding 95.7 percent drop in profit in the third quarter, Reuters reported.

Buried way, way down in the Nov. 2 article, the third-to-last paragraph to be precise, it states

Net profit attributable to the company fell 95.7 percent to $406,000, or break-even per share, hit mainly by restructuring charges related to headcount reductions.

In other words, profitability for the parent company of the rotten, anti-American New York Times was more or less eliminated.

Wow.

I always used to wait for the book to come out before taking in much about about a subject. The Political Class has always made their living on nothing but lies because in realtime, we couldn't refute them but nowadays, we can trash them and relegate them to their special place in hell before the sun sets. 

LMAO!
The MSM Anti-Trump media doesn't want America to understand that THEY are the purveyors of "PRO DEMOCRAT PROPAGANDA".
They think we are stupid.
It's not true.

Once again the liberals the left the Anti-Trump are doing everything possible to get the American people to be against President Trump

Years ago I bought the NYT every day during the week & read it with coffee and/or breakfast before work.  The only thing it is good for now is a bird cage liner.

I see the DNC Propaganda Ministry's NY Times Affiliate Propaganda Minister Jeremy Peters is alive though not well.

"Diluted the original meaning?" How does one dilute "fake"? The main stream media better face up to the facts quick here that the ONLY place voters had that DIDN'T spin fake news was the conservative news/media outlets! Here's some fake news: the inability of the media to accept the behind-the-scenes machinations and corruption of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation...because the emails were "stolen". And the media blamed Russia, when Wikileaks said it was NOT Russia and went so far as to basically "name" its source as a DNC employee! (who Assange put up a sizable reward for the capture of his murderer, because as Assange said, "we protect our sources.")   Hands up, don't shoot....that was fake and was a mainstream media hit! So are the fake allegations of the Muslim woman blaming conservatives of attacking her; and the prankster who got himself booted for speaking Arabic on the plane.  What about the fake news for over a year that Hillary was going to take this election in a landslide! With polls to prove it! NYT has quite a ways to go before it claims it's hands are clean! 

A self inflected dumb dumb round has been pumped into the chest cavity of the msm filthy fake news media which is quickly passing away. Good bye, you collective chumps.

Not to worry! Trump will silence the liberal media and their fake news. He will make sure that only the correct and honest news will be published. He cannot tolerate any dissent when he will make America great again.

Obama promised transparency and delivered marxist imperialism. Trump delivers transparency via his Twitter account and morons think that he will control the news.

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
