Fake News Shooting Itself in Left Foot While Aiming At Trump
This coming Thursday Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of the Boston Globe will make it easy for readers to make a list of which newspapers are Fake News.

Rather than just being lumped together by Chief Fake News Fighter President Donald Trump, they will be listed by name.

Deplorables: Get your PC’s copy and paste function ready to roll.

Bloggers: Prove you are not social media suppressed by posting each and every one of their names—in bold.

“As of Friday, Pritchard said about 70 outlets had committed to editorials so far, with the list expected to grow. The publications ranged from large metropolitan dailies, such as the Houston Chronicle, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Miami Herald and Denver Post, to small weekly papers with circulations as low as 4,000.”

Pritchard is only proving the president’s point. The MSM, which provides an estimated 93% negative coverage on President Trump, is now “coordinating” it.

By their conspicuous absence, we will now be able to find newspapers who report the news.

From all of those who were never sure: Thanks, Marge!

“We are not the enemy of the people,” said Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of The Boston Globe, referring to a characterization of journalists that Trump has used in the past. The president, who contends he has largely been covered unfairly by the press, also employs the term “fake news” often when describing the media. (Boston Globe, Aug. 10, 2018)

The Globe has reached out to editorial boards nationwide to write and publish editorials on Aug. 16 denouncing what the newspaper called a “dirty war against the free press.”

“The newspaper’s request was being promoted by industry groups such as the American Society of News Editors and regional groups like the New England Newspaper and Press Association.

“It suggested editorial boards take a common stand against Trump’s words regardless of their politics, or whether they generally editorialized in support of or in opposition to the president’s policies.”

Where are newspapers generally editorializing in support of the president’s policies?

Cats got their tongues?

“Our words will differ. But at least we can agree that such attacks are alarming,” the appeal said, acknowledging that newspapers were likely to take different approaches.” (Boston Globe)

How is ganging up and piling on in negative anti-Trump coverage now being coordinated taking “different approaches”?

How can the MSM prove they’re not biased by showing coordinated bias?

While the fading and failing newspaper industry may think they are playing whack-a-mole with President Trump, millions among the masses sincerely believe a “dirty war against the free press” is the free press’s “dirty war against them”.

Many are plum tired of being attacked for merely being supporters of a duly elected president.

They’re mad and NOT WILLING to take it anymore.

“Pritchard, who oversees the Globe’s editorial page, said the decision to seek the coordinated response from newspapers was reached after Trump appeared to step up his rhetoric in recent weeks. (Boston Globe)

“At an Aug. 2 political rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Trump told his audience that the media was “fake, fake disgusting news.”

“What ever happened to the free press? What ever happened to honest reporting?” the president asked, pointing to journalists covering the event. “They don’t report it. They only make up stories.”

“Pritchard said she hoped the editorials would make an impression on Americans.

“I hope it would educate readers to realize that an attack on the First Amendment is unacceptable,” she said. “We are a free and independent press, it is one of the most sacred principles enshrined in the Constitution.”

 


To borrow on an oft-repeated expression of Canada Free Press (CFP) reader Paul Bush: “Oh, Lardy, Lardy!”,  the same “free and independent press’ who remained silent during the eight years while now ‘Resistance Leader’ Barack Hussein Obama was tearing apart the Constitution are now claiming rights to “sacred principles” enshrined in it.

Notice how the call to coordinate anti-Trump newspaper coverage is happening at the same time that the socialist social media is ganging up and piling on conservative voices?

Most social media have jumped into the Blue Wave Tank with the progressives, with whom they’ll gag all Conservative opinion until after Midterm elections.

They’re all dog paddling in the same tank now, where they’ll remain until November 7.

But what good is a hide-y-hole when most everyone knows you’re in there?

Message to them from the masses: We’ll still be here when you crawl back out after Midterms.

Meanwhile, deplorables will be doffing their caps to Marjorie Pritchard for outing all purveyors of Fake News.

MAGA ones.
