A Fact Checker's Delight: Trump and Conservative Media (Broadcast and Internet)





Image result for trump reality tv president

Donald Trump has moved the United States to little more than a reality TV show. He campaigned with promises comparable to a carnival barker, knowing full well he was selling million swampland and in Death Valley. Even more pathetic are the millions of nonvoters who broke non-voting records via their non-votes (the socially and politically apathetic, Hillary haters and the GOP Voter ID disenfranchised).

Even though the majority of GOP voters support Trump at the 80% level, it is important for liberals and the highly informed independents to follow Trump and his supporters daily promulgation of lies. Why is it important? 

Trump is suffering nightly tsunami sphincter puckers as he and his communications cadre watch liberal media. Sean Hannity and Laure Ingraham's (Fox News) propaganda is well known to the Trump team and what watch your own propaganda when it is possible to see and hear real news segments? In much more simple terms conservative fake news is delivered to entertain Trump's supporters and whacked out conservatives who find Trump a palatable person and effective national leader. Yet there are media which far surpasses right-wing propaganda: Right-wing social media and websites with the sole purpose of feeding gullible people lie for distribution on social media. Some of the non- broadcast fake news is created and published at times seem to have origins in foreign lands. The false reports are so way out they defy sanity. 

Let's check three stories from reputable fact checkers.  We could spend many hours publishing pieces with themes about Trump and conservative lying. You would grow weary of too many such pieces, so we take the lies in short blurbs.

The Witch Hunt finds no Collusion with Russia - so now they’re looking at the rest of the World. Oh’ great!

As for Congress, the GOP-controlled House intelligence committee concluded in March there was no coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia. Its final report came over the objection of committee Democrats, who said the panel had not interviewed enough witnesses or gathered enough evidence to make a definitive assessment.

The Senate intelligence committee is expected to issue a detailed assessment on Russian interference, including the question of collusion, in the coming months.

We are certain the wee hours the remaining hours of tonight and the wee hours of tomorrow will provide the opportunity to visit Tump's land of lies.
