Re: Fake news

I can't help feeling that we are pussyfooting around with all these 'soft-touch' names. Fake news is lies, road rage is ABH or GBH, end of.

It cannot go on like this, I am near the stage where I disbelieve anything in the mainstream newspapers.
It is driven by the desperation to catch the readers attention, even to pandering to and inflaming their unreasonable fears and prejudices, all to sell advertising! Is said advertising the root of the problem and is it time to try and reign in the excesses of our lying, cheating news sources?
Yes it's a bit like the latest Dragons Den Bitcoin write-up and video, and just because there are pictures of the dragons and a story-line does not mean to say that it is necessarily true, and lets face it I don't think it's a new article either.

Someone else is now doing similar to sell a pill that is supposed to make the blue pill redundant. The same story line, all the Dragons competing with each other to make investments. The storyline says that this happened on the Irish edition of Dragon's Den. However the usual picture of the five Dragons standing in a line showed the Dragons from the English series. These crooks can't even get their lies right. There will always be enough mugs to swallow it.

Yes and Debra Meaden swallowed t hook-line-and sinker with the Bitcoin-code scam, but strangely enough not much news on her taking them to court or anything, maybe she doesn't want to rake up old wounds by letting too many people know that she got scammed!

Re: Fake news

Don't know why people get so easily fooled by fake news

It's simple

If the Russians say anything, it's lies. If the US led by that honest decent and intellectual giant Trump , say anything it's true.

Aren't Trump and Putin both devotees of whataboutism that sacred tactic that's "practically a national ideology" of Russia, according to the Guardian.

You're a pretty good pupil of it yourself reading your past posts eg the NK thread, or to think of it any thread critical of Russian policy.


For the people that don't know 'whataboutism' was a Communist-era tactic of deflecting foreign criticism of say, human rights abuses etc, by pointing, often disingenuously, at something allegedly similar in the critic ’s country or choice with a .... 'Ah, but what about…eg the US.
