An example of fake news the demonstrates how powerful it can be

I get a copy of an email from a Wall Street Insider who is highly regarded as a brilliant market analyst. I’m not supposed to get it because it’s just for members of the Wall Street elite, but I have my sources.  In today’s email he demonstrates that he believes the CNN fake news about Rep. Tom Price’s supposedly unethical stock trading. This is why the legacy media invented fake news. It works. It bolsters their political agenda.

The daily email to all the other Wall Street Moguls reinforces their left-wing bias and relieves them of the need to be correctly informed. It’s easy to believe fake news if you think all of your colleagues believe it. It’s also confirmation bias for what you are predisposed to believe. It’s why millions of worldly dumbbells believe the nutbag hoopla over climate change.

Uninformed voters have no desired to become better informed, so they will forever believe that Rep. Tom Price made an unethical stock trade. It’s why CNN and most of the rest of the legacy media plant false stories in the news cycle and aren’t going to stop anytime soon.

That segment of the American public who are informed grow to hate the legacy media more every day. The legacy media could not care less. They think, and they could be right, that the credulous outnumber the skeptics.

Fortunately for those of us whose political point of view includes reverence for the truth, even when it fails to support our preconceived notions, as of tomorrow we will have a president who won’t stand still for this nonsense.  Unlike most other Republicans, he fights back. Kellyanne Conway has decided to take a job that will keep her in a White House, and she doesn’t suffer fools lightly. It’s going to be a good ride.
