​The Mainstream Corporate Media Complex And Their Obsession With Fake News

There has been much talk about fake news. Most of this talk comes from the Main Stream Corporate Media Complex. While establishment old media sources like The New York Times or The Washington Post have repeatedly published articles that have proven deceptive at best and in some cases downright incorrect, they have thrown around the term fake news in a way that would make any totalitarian government that wanted to control the narrative proud.
In addition to the printed page, the terminally dead portion of the MSCMC, the television broadcast part has decided to follow the same road. While it fools those that do not pay much attention to the real facts around what they are reporting and delights those that are true believers in the Anti-American leftist philosophy which they promote, it has also helped bring the profession the greatest degree of disapproval by the general population that they have ever experienced.

People do not trust that the media is honest. Could any rational thinking person blame them?

In their dishonesty to advance their agenda they have been the most significant factor in turning people against the very thing they promote. Not that people were ever on the same page with them, to begin with, but by them exposing themselves for being the propaganda tools that they are, it was the last straw for people becoming sick and tired of being manipulated.

Last but not least when the MSCMC throws around the term fake news we never actually are told what it is. What stories in this election cycle were fake? How much traction did these fake stories get? What did they have to do with any of the issues of the election?

How much more did some of the other stories in this election affect the American people’s decision? Such as the DNC’s rigging of the Primary for Hillary Clinton. The private emails server that violated the spirit of the law if not the law itself, or even each candidate’s positions as laid out on their very own websites.

Moreover, what if these stories were reported on by all the MSCMC accurately? Would they have had an even bigger impact?

It is easy to blame an undefined, vague concept especially if you never have to identify it.

So instead of the MSCMC throwing around a false narrative we at The Far American challenge them to do their job and perhaps investigation several stories and dig deep into the facts. Report the facts, and leave out the leftist conclusions.

Journalism is supposed to be – Writing characterized by a direct presentation of facts or description of events without an attempt at interpretation.

Is proper journalism being taught in today’s schools? If it is, it seems soon forgotten when these journalists enter the real world. Is it even possible for them to fulfill the exact definition of journalism? Hard to say.

In our next part, we will look at the stories this election cycle that the media should have investigated. Not covered with DNC talking points, but delved into, uncovered, and honestly reported.
