Fake News is well-known but what is it and who is behind it? Who knows that better than former CNN anchor Sharyl Attkisson? She was also formerly an Investigative correspondent in the Washington bureau for CBS News.
She came out with a new book yesterday titled: The Smear – how Shady Political Operatives Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote.
It`s very strange. I have asked many kids about Donald Trump. Do they know him? What do they think about him? They all know him, and all of them said he is an idiot. Trump is stupid they said. All of them. How in the world can a kid know that?
The answer is very simple: MSM (Main Stream Media).
MSM is putting him down every day. It`s all negative, but worst of all; they are still lying. It is still Fake News out there. Why in the world are they digging their own grave? According to Sharyl Attkisson, President Donald Trump is a big threat to the establishment.
The news media is suffering a credibility gap in general because it has decided to blur together like never before. They said Trump was under investigation, but he wasn
t. Trump will lose. Trump will never be President. Iraq have weapons of mass destruction and so on. Its all Fake news. A big lie.
Author Sharyl Attkisson reveals the dirty tricks those in power use to influence your opinions.
Behind most major political stories in the modern era, there is an agenda; an effort by opposition researchers, spin doctors, and outside interests to destroy an idea or a person.
The tactic they use is the Smear.
Every day, people are influenced by the Smear without knowing it. Paid forces cleverly shape virtually every image you cross. Maybe you read that Donald Trump is a racist. A nazi or so on. The trick of the Smear is that it is often based on some shred of truth, but these media-driven «hit-pieces» are designed to obscure the truth.
Success hinges on the Smear artist`s ability to remain invisible; to make it seem as if their work is neither calculated nor scripted. It must appear to be precisely what it is not.
Attkisson exposes the diabolical tactics of Smear artists, and their outrageous access to the biggest names in political media-operatives who are corrupting the political process, and discouraging widespread citizen involvement in our democracy.
CNN headquarters are in panic after getting busted for fake Russia news and three journalists has resigned. This is not an unique story for CNN. It`s happening other places too. That being said; many people have already labeled broadcast journalism as dead.
On top of that: the future of traditional printed media becomes more and more uncertain with over a million blog posts published daily and a long line of freelance writers competing to pitch the juiciest story to top online publishers.
Last year, Sharyl Attkisson posted a video on Facebook that reveals the man being interviewed was a CNN camera man. Wow. That is embarrassing.
Before the election last year, the Media Research Center/YouGov poll found that, «7 in 10 (69%) voters do not belive the news media are honest and truthful.
