It is pretty sad to not have one unbiased news source in a country of 318 million people. Media outlets are just tools the rich, powerful, and elite use to control what the people think.

RE: Examples of Fake News
Even so, you do have some influential resistance like Breitbart and Fox (cuckservative for sure, but they do provide a different perspective at least). Imagine what it's like in a country of 4 million people where Soros/Rothschild can control all public opinion with what amounts to a rounding error.

From the linked article:

With one day before Election Day, Hillary Clinton has a four percentage-point lead over Donald Trump, according to the final Fox News national pre-election poll of likely voters.

She’s ahead by 48-44 percent, while Gary Johnson receives 3 percent and Jill Stein 2 percent.

In the two-way race, it’s also Clinton over Trump by 48-44 percent.

RE: Examples of Fake News
The monthly inflation and unemployment statistics have been fake for decades. The methodology has been changed numerous times - in every single instance leading to lower figures than would have otherwise been the case. Who really believes that unemployment in the US is less than 5%?

Here's John Williams of shadowstats on the fake US employment statistics.

http://www.shadowstats.com/article/c810x.pdf

Here he explains how the inflation figures are faked.

http://www.shadowstats.com/article/no-43...asurement.

The faked inflation figures automatically mean that economic growth figures are fake. For example, if the economy grows in nominal Terms by say 5% and Inflation is ssumed to be 3%, then real growth comes in at about 2% (5-3). If Inflation is however really 6%, then real growth is -1% (5-6).

I agree with John Williams, though in terms of growth - the inflation numbers are correct when you take into account the real economic activity of the bottom 95%, since inflation hits them disproportionately, thus in your example they actually get a -1% growth. As for the top 5%, there may even be a plus of 7%.

Cannot find the vid, but there was even a big ratings chief who came out on CNBC TV and said that the employment numbers are so fake, that he would risk his life if he started to talk about the real numbers there.

The top people are of course closest to the money spigot at the Fed, the BoE and the ECB. They get the new money first and invest it before it loses value. By the time the plebs get their Hands on it it has been devalued.

RE: Examples of Fake News
I always knew the media was biased, but I thought the reporting was real and commentary biased.

Then there was the George Zimmerman recording where the states that the intruder (Trayvon was black) but the media edited out that the police ASKED the race of the intruder.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/...ws-outlet/

NBC News:

On March 27, the “Today Show” would air audio of a 911 call that they had maliciously edited.

Here is what NBC broadcast:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Here is the actual conversation:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.

After the fraudulent editing was discovered (first by Breitbart News), NBC News issued a full retraction and fired a number of the producers involved.

From Facebook Newsroom's "News Feed FYI: Addressing Hoaxes and Fake News":
Quote:A few weeks ago we previewed some of the things we’re working on to address the issue of fake news and hoaxes. We’re committed to doing our part and today we’d like to share some updates we’re testing and starting to roll out.

We believe in giving people a voice and that we cannot become arbiters of truth ourselves, so we’re approaching this problem carefully. We’ve focused our efforts on the worst of the worst, on the clear hoaxes spread by spammers for their own gain, and on engaging both our community and third party organizations.

The work falls into the following four areas. These are just some of the first steps we’re taking to improve the experience for people on Facebook. We’ll learn from these tests, and iterate and extend them over time.

Easier Reporting
We’re testing several ways to make it easier to report a hoax if you see one on Facebook, which you can do by clicking the upper right hand corner of a post. We’ve relied heavily on our community for help on this issue, and this can help us detect more fake news.

[Image: reporting-a-story-as-fake.png?w=960&h=860]

Flagging Stories as Disputed
We believe providing more context can help people decide for themselves what to trust and what to share. We’ve started a program to work with third-party fact checking organizations that are signatories of Poynter’s International Fact Checking Code of Principles. We’ll use the reports from our community, along with other signals, to send stories to these organizations. If the fact checking organizations identify a story as fake, it will get flagged as disputed and there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why. Stories that have been disputed may also appear lower in News Feed.

[Image: disputed-story1.png?w=408&h=757]

It will still be possible to share these stories, but you will see a warning that the story has been disputed as you share.

[Image: sharing-disputed-story1.png?w=405&h=752]

Once a story is flagged, it can’t be made into an ad and promoted, either.

Informed Sharing
We’re always looking to improve News Feed by listening to what the community is telling us. We’ve found that if reading an article makes people significantly less likely to share it, that may be a sign that a story has misled people in some way. We’re going to test incorporating this signal into ranking, specifically for articles that are outliers, where people who read the article are significantly less likely to share it.

Disrupting Financial Incentives for Spammers
We’ve found that a lot of fake news is financially motivated. Spammers make money by masquerading as well-known news organizations, and posting hoaxes that get people to visit to their sites, which are often mostly ads. So we’re doing several things to reduce the financial incentives. On the buying side we’ve eliminated the ability to spoof domains, which will reduce the prevalence of sites that pretend to be real publications. On the publisher side, we are analyzing publisher sites to detect where policy enforcement actions might be necessary.

It’s important to us that the stories you see on Facebook are authentic and meaningful. We’re excited about this progress, but we know there’s more to be done. We’re going to keep working on this problem for as long as it takes to get it right
