Why are you posting old shit? Posted Dec 13, 2016
The "Fake News" belongs to CNN and the rest of the Nets, and beyond getting called out for it, there is no concerted effort to ban anything, that's just a tool for distraction from the real perpetrators in leftist media.

"Oh look, a youtube video lying about Obozo, we need to ban it" POure BS and they got called on it, just like they claimed it was a video that started the uprising in Libya.
No one on the Right is falling for this shit anymore, the left lost, it's that simple.
Let's make an attempt to avoid ole leftist talking points and focus on the here and now with topical events of how the left loses at every turn, shall we?

Yes we have freedom of speech under the First Amendment; yet there is a fine line between inaccurate reporting and accusations and freedom of speech; one can get into trouble for defamation of character.  IMHO those entities that continue to report fake news or have a reputation for reporting fake news become irrelevant and deemed as unreliable; yahoo is a prime example.  Snopes is another source that I now consider complete garbage.  CNN has been called out for their inaccurate reporting.  You perhaps see it as a so-called 'war' on fake news, I see it as simply refusing to buy into the liberal mental midget media hype.

Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us all.

I don't consider pointing out inaccurate reporting as 'fake news' as restricting free thought and free speech. If you hand me an article that I disagree with and I call it 'hogwash' am I limiting your thoughts or freedom of expression?  I don't have to believe or agree with what you write.  In the same light, I don't have to agree or believe with the MSM spews.

People who like to play 'the devil's advocate' actually are, 'the devil's advocate'.   What a ridiculous statement, even the founding fathers said the only way government would survive is if the nation's people and the elected officials had moral standards - which naturally implies their 'thoughts' were guided by Biblical/Godly principles.   Here's a 'freebie thought' fer ya, your posts demonstrate you're a slave to stupidity and ignorant of history.

I hope he doesn't leave, I believe he can benefit greatly from this forums collective wisdom.

Where is this happening?  The press was supposed to be a free press -- not a propaganda arm of the globalist Marxists.

FREE!?!?!  Free Press???   Seriously trying to figure out this chicken/egg scenario, which came first, the Liberal politician or the Liberal press? 
Who is leading whom?   Is the press reporting on the politicians, or crafting stories to give the politicians their marching orders?

I see it as an asexual, symbiotic leech/host relationship, where either side easily changes sex to adapt to the situation.
This would explain their support for trannys. :biggrin:

You know the US is doomed when Americans would rather attack those who defend freedom instead of criticizing the government that is enslaving them.
