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.

Until now, that term had been widely understood to refer to fabricated news accounts that are meant to spread virally online.

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.

The Fall Of Fake News!! Quiet Shake-Up At MSNBC After Station Hemorrhages Viewers Following Mueller Debacle 

Reports are surfacing about a quiet shake-up of personnel at MSNBC after the cable news station lost more than 30% of their audience after the Mueller debacle.

Apparently MNSBC doesn’t think their financial woes are newsworthy given that they didn’t run any breathless stories about their own failings.

News of MSNBC’s collapse can’t come as a surprise to insiders who undoubtedly are fully aware that their audience no longer trusts them.

One source familiar told Mediaite the changes came amidst mounting complaints from NBC News chief Andy Lack about a dip in MSNBC’s ratings following the end of the Mueller investigation. In May, ratings for the network in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demo were down 32% year over year.

MSNBC viewers were asked: How much do you agree that MSNBC regularly reports made up or fake news about Donald Trump and his administration?

The responses were devastating! While 35% or respondents agree that MSNBC pushes Fake News, only 24% disagreed. That’s a ratings death sentence!

What do you expect from a channel that boasts disgraced liar, Brian Williams, and race pimp, Al Sharpton?

MAJOR SHAKEUP AT MSNBC - Ratings crater after Mueller Report Debacle! 

MSNBC Shakeup: Jonathan Wald and Dan Arnall Take Dayside

MSNBC quietly implemented a sweeping shakeup in programming this week, Mediaite has learned, appointing SVP of programming and development Jonathan Wald and MSNBC executive editor Dan Arnall to lead...

Flashback: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Plummet To Yearly Low

MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow brought in her worst weekly ratings of the year last week.

Her show last week averaged 2,324,000 viewers, with an average audience of 337,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, both of which mark yearly lows for the liberal television host, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Maddow first saw a dramatic drop in ratings following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Her previous low for a week in 2019 was the last week in March, the first full week after Mueller submitted his conclusion to Attorney General William Barr, where she averaged 2,458,000 viewers with 392,000 in the demo.

She spent two years dissecting every aspect of the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election. The night Mueller submitted his findings to Barr, Maddow appeared to hold back tears over the fact that neither the president nor any family members were indicted.

Compared to Maddow’s low ratings last week, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, whose program is often the most-watched among all cable news shows, averaged 3,108,000 viewers with just under half-a-million viewers in the key demographic.

She also nearly tripled CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s weekly ratings. His program only had 880,000 viewers with 225,000 in the key demo.
