CNN Says Calling Them “Fake News” Is The Same As Using The “N-Word”

By Matt Agorist

It appears that CNN has launched a war on those who attempt to call out the mainstream media’s lies by comparing those who use the term ‘fake news’ with those who use derogatory and racial slurs like the ‘n-word’.

Late last year, as the presidential election was coming to an end, the Washington Post launched a full on attack against anyone who dared question the establishment narrative — the term ‘fake news’ was born.

For weeks, the Post and other outlets waged war on supposed ‘Fake News’ outlets even going so far as to put out an arbitrary list of dozens of sites they deemed ‘fake’ — including the Free Thought Project.

After their attempt to weaponize news blew up in their face in the form of a myriad of cease and desists, and the resultant shit show spawning from mainstream media referring to each other as ‘fake news’, the Washington Post then attempted to take the high ground and “retire the tainted term ‘fake news.’”

However, it was too late. After being caught peddling their own ‘Fake News’, the term was co-opted by those calling out the mainstream media for their blatant lies and disinformation — Donald Trump even jumped on board.

Of course, the term ‘Fake News’ has become so bastardized that it essentially lost what little substance it ever had. On the right, Trump has no problem labeling everything critical of him as fake news, while on the left — we see the same scenario unfolding with Media Matters and the like.

The reality is that corporate media and the establishment have been lying to the people for so long that public has no idea what to believe.

We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false. — William Casey (CIA Director)

As we have reported, both the corporate mainstream on the left and right, and the White House have all been caught — multiple times in just the last few weeks — dumping lies and disinformation onto the American public.

Twice in a single day, the White House put out two false stories of attacks on the US that never happened.

On the day of Trump’s inauguration, CNN claimed Nancy Sinatra was “not happy” with the fact that the president and first lady’s inaugural dance would be to the tune of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way.” The problem? Nancy Sinatra had never said any such thing. CNN later updated the article without explaining the mistake they had made.

And these only a drop in the bucket.

The trash talking mud slinging shit show that is the establishment narrative is effectively imploding as they are caught in lie after vicious lie. And now, it appears, they are taking action to stop this dissent.

Instead of using facts and logic to defeat an argument, corporate media and the establishment like to employ the association fallacy and appeal to emotion by creating a red-herring and equating those who disagree with them to this red-herring.

The latest case of the employment of the association fallacy is now appearing on CNN as Chris Cuomo took to the air — not once but twice — to associate anyone who questions the establishment narrative as a racist.

Cuomo dared to compare the term ‘fake news’ with the ‘n-word’.

“‘Fake news’ is the worst thing you can call a journalist. It’s like an ethnic disparagement. You know, we all have these ugly words for people and that’s the one for journalists,” asserted Cuomo on Thursday.

Cuomo was also heard on the radio saying the same thing, but this time, he actually used the term ‘N-word.’

“I see being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the ‘n-word’ for journalists, the equivalent of calling an Italian any of the ugly words that people have for that ethnicity. That’s what ‘fake news’ is to a journalist,” Cuomo said.

Sadly, this association fallacy is nothing new. Within the two-party paradigm, asinine labels are thrown around on people who simply don’t fall into the same political category. The left loves to use term ‘racist’ for anyone who dares question the welfare state, while the right refers to those who question the warfare state as ‘terrorist sympathizers.’

It is nothing more than ‘us vs. them’ tactics. Sadly, the American people have yet to wake up to the fact that the establishment has been using this form of divide to keep society conquered — so it continues to work.

Please share this article with your friends and family so that they can see the manipulation first hand — once you see it from outside the two-party dynamic, both the left and the right are seen for what they really are — two sides of the same coin that represents pure oppression.

  1. ““I see being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the ‘n-word’ for journalists…’

    No, the difference is one is a deliberate decision to lie, misquote, distort, etc information; while the other is something one is born into.

    When the information you lie, misquote, distort, etc information to see to it that the people are NOT informed when the protected duty that you perform is that the people have access to real information it is an action AGAINST our legitimate government, our nation, against the American people. It has caused deaths (lies to get us into wars), maiming, loss of property, etc which places it in the position of treasonous activity. To be a traitor against the American people is a CHOICE one makes. Seems like it is a choice YOU made.

  2. OK Chris, then you have the power to remedy that situation by telling the truth!!!!

  3. They are really reaching on this one hey? The n, c, p, b, q, words have become victimization words for those who are n, c, p, b, q’s.

  4. This is beyond rediculous. CNN and other MSN are NOT the victims here ! No one in their correct mind should feel pity or fall for this nonsense. The populace is the victim of the MSN & CNN propagating fake news to prop up two of the worst devils to ever run for office! So I say loud and clear: “F A K E N E W S !” They are supposed to be the 4th Estate yet they have failed to provide truth and have acted against the American populace and our government of, by, and for the people. They actually chose to do this to please their corporate masters and enslave us all under a false paradigm of a rigged two party system and now that they are caught they want to play victim when they are in fact traitors to all that they once represented.

    Keep saying it, keep writing it, & teach your kids.

  6. Good piece Matt!

    FTP could use a lesson in reporting “fake news” itself. But misquoting, distorting and excluding the facts seems to be the norm with a few of their writers. Most of their stuff is pretty good though. I’ll advise them to clean it up, or lose in the end.

  7. There is a reason why the firewall for my computers and for my modem have CNN entered on the blacklist. It works great! Even if I accidentally click on a CNN link, all I get is ‘page not found’!

  8. So yellow journalism is good?

  9. For those who didnt know, the CNN reporter is Chris Cuomo, son of former
    Governor/Wiseguy Mario Cuomo, and brother to current Governor Andrew
    Cuomo, who as of two weeks ago just finished putting in facial
    recognition cameras at the bridges and tunnels of NYC….Just another
    day for the NWO…

  10. CNN is the N word – 10Xs over

  11. CNN,NBC,ABC,CBS,MSNBC, you are all dead.
    Long live ALT.

  12. Actually I do think the N-word is appropriate- they have revealed themselves to be neo-nazis without the ‘neo’.

  13. I ceased watching or reading the MSM over 12 years ago. The straw that broke the camel’s back for me was the total lack of information about the Downing Street Memo. I searched mainstream site after site to no avail. It was as if the memo had never happened. I was able to find all the information I wanted to about the subject on foreign websites but nothing from US mainstream sources. That was it for me. Censoring important news is as bad as telling lies. The whole thing started with Faux “News” and spread like a communicable disease through the US media!

  14. Hey Chris,the truth hurts!

  15. How dare you compare “fake news ” as being the same as the N word .Are you an idiot? One is used to degrade a race of people to belittle them. Yes CNN has been wrong on some occasions but that doesn’t give you the right compare the N word to Fake News .

  16. I think the term ‘Presstitute’ pretty much sums up the function of the LSM.

  17. CNN is fake news, fake news, fake news.

  18. Actually CNN, Huffinton post, Mother Jones, Politico, etc are great joournalism!!! they show the reality that monster Trump is

  19. When information peddlers decend to level of the mainstream media today (especially CNN), we should force them to add the term “propaganda” to their televised name. So “CNN” would become “CNN propanganda”.

    Calling the MSM “news” is false labeling.

  20. I kaint call them the n-word enough.Nasty agenda driven crapola.
