CNN is just getting petty now:

MELANIA TRUMP ORDERS REMOVAL OF NEAR-200-YEAR-OLD TREE FROM WHITE HOUSE

Actual story:

Quote:...specialists at the United States National Arboretum, which determined the magnolia tree must be removed.

I am afraid that women appreciate cruelty, downright cruelty, more than anything else. They have wonderfully primitive instincts. We have emancipated them, but they remain slaves looking for their masters all the same. They love being dominated.

This was fake news. They also got Breitbart and Alex Jones. It was quite convincing. For me, a big tip-off was that there is no "ABC 14" in the Morgantown area.

I don't want to post the story (PM if interested.)

A junkie scumbag I worked with for two weeks was arrested after holding a door for a cop.

The news item was "man arrested for holding door for cop."

Leaving out the 20 or whatever convictions (domestic violence, larceny, shoplifting, possession of hard drugs etc etc etc)

Basically an anticop story (for arresting someone who belongs in jail.)

RE: Examples of Fake News
Anyone remember ex-New Yorker Fact Checker, Talia Lavin, who falsely said something untrue about an ICE Agent's tattoo? Well, NYU Journalism School just hires her to teach an undergraduate fall semester course, "Reporting on the Far Right”.





What a shitshow it's going to be. A worthless Journalism degree at NYU.
Lolwtf

Quote:NYU Journalism School Hires Ex-New Yorker Fact Checker Who Falsely Said ICE Agent Had Nazi Tattoo

Talia Lavin’s undergraduate course “Reporting on the Far Right” will kick off in the fall semester of 2019

Jon Levine | March 20, 2019 @ 9:08 AM

New York University has hired Talia Lavin as an adjunct journalism professor less than a year after the former New Yorker fact checker resigned after falsely accusing an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent of having a Nazi tattoo.

Lavin’s undergraduate course “Reporting on the Far Right” will kick off in the fall semester of 2019 at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. In its official faculty bio, the university billed Lavin as an expert in “far-right extremism and social justice.”

At least one current NYU journalism student questioned the decision to hire Lavin. “I sympathize with Lavin’s politics, but I don’t know why someone who had to quit their journalism job for falsely implying someone is a Nazi should be teaching at NYU,” said the student, who requested anonymity for fear of academic reprisal. “I know there are plenty of reporters out there in need of work who haven’t made a mistake like that.”

Lavin declined to comment for this story. Reps for NYU, the school’s journalism department and university president Andrew Hamilton did not respond to requests for comment.

After leaving the New Yorker last June, Lavin was hired by the liberal media watchdog group Media Matters for America less than a month later to focus on “far right extremism.” Though her LinkedIn profile lists that she currently works there, a spokesperson for the organization confirmed that she was no longer employed there. An additional person with knowledge of the matter said she left several months ago.

Neither Lavin’s three-year tenure at the New Yorker nor her stint at Media Matters are mentioned on her official NYU faculty bio.

Lavin’s career promptly blew up last June after she accused Justin Gaertner, a wheelchair-bound ICE agent, of having a Nazi Iron Cross tattoo over his left elbow. Lavin made the charge in a tweet after viewing a photo of Gaertner online. She later deleted her tweet after she said a number of people responded and informed her that the tattoo in question appeared to be a Maltese Cross — a symbol commonly used by members of the U.S. Veterans of Foreign Wars.

That, however, was not enough for the critics. The story blew up on social media and Lavin even earned a lengthy rebuke from ICE itself as well as The New Yorker. “The personal social-media accounts of staff members do not represent the magazine, and we in no way share the viewpoint expressed in this tweet,” a magazine spokesperson told National Review. “The tweet has been deleted, and we deeply regret any harm that this may have caused Mr. Gaertner.”

In a Twitter thread, Lavin soon announced her resignation from the magazine and apologized to Gaertner over the error. She also criticized ICE, saying it was not “acceptable” for the agency to attack her personally over her mistake.

“This has been a wild and difficult week. I owe ICE agent Justin Gaertner a sincere apology for spreading an rumor about his tattoo,” she said. “However, I do not think it is acceptable for a federal agency to target a private citizen for a good faith, hastily rectified error.”

I found it hard to believe that she's a "journalist" who's about to teach an undergraduate journalism course at NYU by filling young students' minds with propaganda garbage. Lavin sounds more like a radical SJW/Maxist than a journalism teacher.

RE: Examples of Fake News
Let's talk about the "fake frame," which is just as insidious and dishonest as fake news. The "fake frame" is when someone has a point to make, but lies about the larger context their point lies within. The readership is so busy focusing on the main point that it misses the bigger lie.

Here is an example.

Today the new editor of GQ magazine wrote an introductory letter to the readership where he discussed what it's like to head up a men's magazine in today's culture. But within his piece, he also wrote that we have a "society ha(s) been wearing blinders that shielded a pervasive culture of sexual intimidation and violence and blatant gender inequality."

That's statistically false.

If you Google "statistics sexual violence in the U.S." (no quotes) even the left-leaning Google has this to say on its main page: "According to a March 2013 report from the U.S. Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Statistics, from 1995 to 2010, the estimated annual rate of female rape or sexual assault declined 58%, from 5.0 victimizations per 1,000 females age 12 or older to 2.1 per 1,000."*

If you do a little more research, you can find scads of articles backing this up, most notably the classic Slate article from 1996 that tells of how Internet porn caused the decline in rape (link).

* This is off-topic, but I think it's important to note WHY the hysteria about sexual assault is rising as the numbers plummet. There is an entire economic infrastructure built around this: Hotlines, books, self-defense courses, magazine articles and ads, government grants for studies, women's support groups, YouTube video channels, women's studies courses, etc. If they report sexual violence is plummeting, they're out of jobs. This is why Yale just came out with an analysis of sexual assault on campus that rigs the numbers so the campus comes off as more dangerous than Detroit (link).
