Inspired by something I read or heard somewhere.
I forget where I heard of such things.


TW for anyone Googling this. Remember kids, question everything and always think for yourselves.

(I hate the whole Drumpf thing...it's like the cheapest possible joke and there is soooo much more to legitimately criticize about him.)

Anyway, it's pretty obvious what he's doing. It's a Nixon trick (older than that, but Nixon is the best contemporary example).
Discredit the people reporting bad things about you, rather than rebut the things they're actually writing (usually because you can't, because they're actually true). Erode faith in the fourth estate to the greatest extent possible. The next step is direct or indirect threats to reporters' lives and safety.

It's fascinating to read modern pieces by reporters like Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward. Every president hates the press to some extent, but the parallels between what Nixon did and what Trump is doing are crazy.
(The fact that Roger Stone was heavily involved in the Trump campaign is definitely part of this.)

You forgot the third option:

It's hilarious.

They are constantly airing sound bites of his out of context.

Truly. No politician in history has been treated worse than him.

I mean, that whole grab em by the pussy thing was taken waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of context.

Referring to a Congressional Budget Office report as "fake news" suggest that Trump has a disconnect from reality.
He's done a few other things that seem unwise, too.

A few.

I'd like Bird's list so we can see how large the word few has grown.

is there an entire list of outlets trump has called fake news? i know they all push a narrative, but i doubt they would deliberately make something up with no factual backing.

I don't have any sort of list relating to this, unless you just mean the list of stuff I personally remember happening.

I wasn't aware Trump called everything fake news. When he referred to CNN as fake news he was rather accurate.

appealing to nationalism, identifying a scapegoat, undermining the press.
check, check, check

CNN has already had to retract at least one story that they admitted was just a lie to boost ratings.

I think it's accurate to call most news sources 'fake news' or at least call them crap. Even the ones that broadcast 'truth' only do a portion of it in order to make you lean the way they want you to.

I'm not saying I'm for Trump, this just isn't one of the things I care so much about him doing.

Who's drumpth? And honestly alot of UNITED STATES media is pretty fake news. You have to look at media from multiple countries and sources to even get close to truth. Some content yeah it dont matter other content though you really have to investigate

So, if he's saying everything is fake news, is he saying that the news of his election is fake and he's not really the president?

I think it's a great mantra for people who think the POTUS should be their only source of information.

Huffington post and all sites under vox media are fake.

But so are infowars and fox.

it's interesting how effectively he appropriated the term coined to describe how inaccurate rightwing internet clickbait is
