You are reading page 3 of Fake News. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Okay, that's now nine accounts that have been discredited (the young woman in NYC, plus eight additional accounts noted in the Reason article), out of several hundred that have been reported. We're making real progress now.

Is there any actual data of an actual crime being committed? We already know from wiki leaks of the hate that was being instigated at Trump rallies by the Clinton campaign and now more and more of these fake stories about minorities and assorted left wing crazies claiming victim status because of Trump.

We don't "know" anything of the sort. That creep O'Keefe put out another of his heavily doctored, faux "expose'" videos in which he claims to show that somebody who worked for somebody who worked for somebody who worked for the DNC was coaching people on provoking crazy Trumpies at their rallies, but, since everything else O'Keefe has reported has eventually been completely debunked, it's hard to give that too much credence. And many of us don't put nearly as much stock in Wikileaks as you do, esp. since it has become increasingly apparent over time that most of the campaign related Wikileaks info was an intentional pro-Trump propaganda campaign implemented by the Russians. (But I guess the Russians manipulating our elections doesn't bother you, as long as your guy ended up winning. Keep drinking the Kool-Aid ...)

How would you define "actual data"? There have been hundreds of reports of incidents of harassment, property damage, assault, etc. Some of them have been videotaped, there have been photos of racist and anti-gay graffiti defacing buildings, etc., but I'm sure your response is to assume that they have all been faked by individuals "claiming victim status." Maybe it will turn out that's true, but given the level of hate, racism, and every other kind of bigotry shown by many Trump supporters during the campaign (and since), I have a hard time believing that none of these things are actually happening.

I could post all sorts of sources of lists and descriptions of the hundreds of incidents that have been reported, but I don't really see the point, since you will simply continue to believe that everyone is lying, and, apparently, you refuse to acknowledge anything that isn't published by a far right website.

Sheriff Refutes Breitbart Report Linking Wine Country Fires To Illegal Immigrant

A right-wing news agency article claiming that an illegal immigrant was arrested in connection with the deadly wine country fires is being called "false and misleading."

At a Tuesday afternoon press conference, Sonoma County Sheriff Robert Giordano directly addressed the false claim.

Sheriff Giordano said. "Cal Fire is doing an investigation to see how these fires started. We don't even know if it's arson."...

Did you hear that the BIG IMPORTANT news is that the Clinton campaign paid for the dossier?

Oh, and there's another House investigation into Clinton. I feel like there's a wildfire tearing through a neighborhood and the fire department is reviewing last season's fire response, in a 3 day seminar.

Why can't I add my NPR link?

Well *I* heard that Bill fell asleep during Hilary's acceptance speech for the nomination at the DNC, and it's because he has either Alzheimer's or Parkinson's.

GASP!

The whole fake news thing has got so out of hand that you really don't know what to believe any more. Even some mainstream news sites are having issues with fact checking. others, are just blatantly being trying to gets clicks with sensational titles. I'm interested to see how Facebook's new fake news measures will actually work.
