And no, I am not kidding.
As California’s debt explodes, businesses flee, illegals drain and trash the state and are encouraged to vote illegally, as San Francisco is turned into a piss-and-shite-filled excrement dump and Los Angeles borders on bankruptcy due to its policies and the lawsuits filed against it (wait, I thought LA was Leftist Central and violated no one’s rights), Sacramento decides that this issue demands its immediate and pointed focus.
From the Guardian.com:
California lawmakers propose bills to teach students to identify ‘fake news’
by Alan Yuhas in San Francisco
The bills aim to teach high school students how to detect misleading, fabricated or inaccurate reports in the wake of the 2016 US election
Two California lawmakers have proposed bills to fight “fake news” by teaching high school students how to detect misleading, fabricated or inaccurate reports in the waves of information flooding into their daily lives.
“The rise of fake and misleading news is deeply concerning,” Dodd said in a statement. “Even more concerning is the lack of education provided to ensure people can distinguish what is fact and what’s not.”
“By giving students the proper tools to analyze the media they consume, we can empower them to make informed decisions,” he added.
But wait; let’s hearken back to this incredibly insightful and correct quote by Josef Stalin.
Because, after all, who determines an election? Who decides whom is insane? Who decides what is fake news?
Tessa Jolls, president of the nonprofit and nonpartisan Center for Media Literacy, said that such measures were long overdue. “Now that powers have shifted, with citizens as producers [of information], people are suddenly saying, ‘Oh wow, this is something we need.’”
Well just hold on there, cowgirl. Perhaps you ought to go back and evaluate the origin of “fake news,” why and when the meme was created. And who determines “fake news.”
“Fake news” didn’t exist when NBC, ABC, CBS and other “mainstream media” sites were historically lying their arses off to the American public. They were and are what I term the American Media Maggots, for obvious reasons.
Fake rape stories on any number of occasions, AMM? Cars that tip over, AMM? Dan Rather lying about George Bush? Hundreds of false discrimination stories? Rick Jones? Sharmeka Moffitt? Reza Aslan? Tahera Ahmad? Anti-gay tip receipt? Duke University? Michael Nifong? Oberlin KKK hoax? Tawana Brawley? Grand Valley State University black chick? Rolling Stone magazine? Joseph Baken? CAIR’s staged videos? CNN interviewing their own cameraman, claiming it was an anti-Trump protester on Don Lemon? “Trumpers violent” when it was in fact Leftists who burned, hit, stabbed, cut, destroyed property around the US? HRC having a “98% chance of winning”?
The “Fourth Estate” exists only as, now, a PR firm for Leftists and Demorats. We’re on to you. You are in fact naked.
How shallow be thy memory, American Media Maggots. Where an anti-conservative meme exists, you jump on it and provide vast amounts of time, headline space and copy inches. Because you have an anti-conservative theme to catch.
More importantly, just who fact checks the “fact checkers”? Were you, my dear readers, cognizant that the staff of Snopes.com is comprised primarily of Leftists? Would you even remotely be shocked? What about Facebook?
Facebook routinely buried conservative news and topics from trending on the site and artificially made liberal topics part of the national discussion, former Facebook employees admitted last May. TheDC previously reported that the former Facebook trending news team was filled by liberals. It has since automated the Trending Topics section of its page.
Jolls makes an admirable statement:
“What we want is skepticism, not cynicism,” she said. “Cynicism is when you don’t believe anything. Skepticism is when you have discernment, judgment you can rely on.”
In a vacuum, the quote is sensible. In reality, I go back to my Josef Stalin quote.
Just who determines what is what?
In Fornicalia, come on.
I think you know that answer.
I say: go ahead. Prove to me you’re not insane.
By what standards?
Ultimately: who creates and holds those standards?
Fornicalia is as impartial as a Chinese judge at the Beijing Olympics.
