Nearly 50% Of Americans Think Government Should Take Action Against “Fake News”

censorship UKBy Kurt Nimmo

The Pew Research Center reported on December 15 nearly half of polled American believe the government should take action against what the establishment media calls “fake news.”

Fully 45% of U.S. adults say government, politicians and elected officials bear a great deal of responsibility for preventing made-up stories from gaining attention, on par with the 43% that say this of the public and the 42% who say this of social networking sites and search engines.

The survey also shows many Americans are confused by supposed fake news. “About two-in-three U.S. adults (64%) say fabricated news stories cause a great deal of confusion about the basic facts of current issues and events.”

Prior to the focus on supposed fake news and the establishment media’s effort to link it to some grand and menacing Russian plot to take down America, most people made up their minds without government or media interference on what is real and what is not.

  1. It is not the governments job, it is you sheeple, read, learn, then you decide what is real and what is fake.

  2. Murrkans are really dumbed down huh?

  3. Which fake news are they talking about? The ones I’ve been using the term for the last 10 years or the ones that the fake news has been claiming to be fake the last ten days? I can see the reincarnation of Paul Joseph Goebbels The Obama Reich Minister of Propaganda.

  4. ‘Fake News’ PARODY spreads everywhere, and the BIGGEST JOKE IN ALL OF IT IS, that Fake News existed for decades and nobody was talking about it so much. One solution to this dilemma seems to be good working BRAIN, after good cup of green tea or coffee (infused with clove, anise, cinnamon, cocoa, reishi, cardamon and more, according to individual likes) and starting to CONNECT THE DOTS BY LOOKING AT PHYSICAL FACTS. The latter would be:
    1. tyranny of medical establishment (Rockeffellers et al.), suppressing ALL NATURAL, the ONLY ONES, cancer cures, forcing vaccinations, which lead to a nation of slowly but TOTALLY handicapped
    3. tyranny of all WARS in the past and most recent ‘presence’, in particular ALL 9/11 LIES and their consequences!!
    4. OIL TYRRANY by Rockeffellers et al. and suppressing all alternative energies capable of rescuing this planet!!!
    Now ask yourself, who played the biggest role in all of that??

  5. This should also include MSM. There was no WMDs to begin with and look how many deaths were attributed in this globalist war. Thank you CIA who profited greatly by tricking everyone that there were WMDs. Heck, the poison gases that Saddam used on his people came freely from the US government with best wishes.

  6. What these guys posted.
    Take this fakery MSM.
    blahablahblah, turn off the boob tube and decide fo’ yo’self.

  7. if fake news is such a horrible, life threatening issue media why don’t you spend your time educating people on how to verify news sources? Or we could censor and alter our constitution. Hmmmm which option makes more sense?
