Less than two weeks in to 2017, and this year is already beginning to be known as the year mainstream media died. The shit show, that is FOXSNBCNN, is imploding — and the resultant devolving circus is nothing short of hilarious.
As the “Fake News” ploy to discredit alternative media backfires and exposes corporate media’s lies, Americans are quickly finding out that they’ve been duped.
On Tuesday, the media outfit, Buzzfeed, published an entirely unconfirmed and outright laughable hit piece against president-elect Donald Trump. (No, we are not endorsing Trump by calling attention to this.) And, on Wednesday, during a press conference, Trump slammed both Buzzfeed and CNN.
“A dossier, compiled by a person who has claimed to be a former British intelligence official, alleges Russia has compromising information on Trump. The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors,” the collaborative BuzzFeed article asserted.
Zero Hedge summed up the ridiculous nature of Buzzfeed running such a specious report,
In a story that is getting more surreal by the minute, a post on 4Chan now claims that the infamous ‘golden showers’ scene in the unverified 35-page dossier, allegedly compiled by a British intelligence officer, was a hoax and fabricated by a member of the chatboard as ‘fanfiction’, then sent to Rick Wilson, who proceeded to send it to the CIA, which then put it in their official classified intelligence report on the election.
During the press conference Wednesday, Trump slammed Buzzfeed for the report, saying “Buzzfeed which is a failing pile of garbage … will suffer the consequences.”
Then, in a massive pile of apparent butthurt, Jim Acosta yelled out, “Since you are attacking us, can you give us a question?”
“Not you,” Trump said. “Your organization is terrible!”
Acosta continued, “You are attacking our news organization, can you give us a chance to ask a question, sir?” Trump countered by telling him “don’t be rude.”
“I’m not going to give you a question,” Trump responded. “Don’t be rude. I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!” Trump responded.
The entire debacle unfolded in a matter of seconds and the result is nothing short of epic. See for yourself below.
