    ^ More like the above story is a non-news story than a story about fake news.

    What difference does it make that CNN used an eye catching screenshot from a game to illustrate hacking? Real hacking screenshot has to very dull.

    So now that the rest of the world is catching onto, and utilising, the very same technologies that the US has been using for many years- such as mass media propaganda, cyber warfare, on-line surveillance, and hacking- the US cries foul. Funny thing that.

    I'll give you some Foul- what's good for the gander is good for the geese. Anyone heard of Stuxnet? Or the NSA, or Julian Assange, or that Amerkin geek now exiled in Moscow, or b'lehhhh.

    You lead by example- now deal with it. Yours is not the only voice, and never was.

    this latest tech bubble has been driven by these IPO's which are more about making the original venture investors rich with money from pension funds and retail investors

    it is another trillion dollar wealth transfer from the rapidly deteriorating middle class

    the tech bubble will burst when nasdaq ipo's run out of suckers

    TBH, fake news, fake advertising, propaganda, opinion posing as fact, the false assumption of veracity give to lies from 'authority figures', celebrities being used to sell bullshit, hired 'experts'- all of these things are part of the same syndrome, and have been around forever.

    All that has changed is the methods of communication, their audience reach, and an explosion in the amount of people that have access to, and knowledge of these same techniques. IE the Technology. Their is no cozy oligopoly on mass communication, or the audience that you reach any more- and that is as good as it is bad.

    Exactly what the Russians want us to believe. Muddy the waters. Accuse the US of doing something that can be sold as equivalent. Create the belief that everybody does it so everyone is corrupt and democracy itself as an institution is corrupt. Amplify the illusion that Putin, a former KGB agent and murderer of his political opponents, and Russia a country where free elections are a joke, is a legitimate role model for nations to align with and reject the US.

    Could you put up a link from either network stating Hillary was sure to win?

    Don't fall for Earl's little games. He likes to change the subject to Hillary because he doesn't enjoy being on the defensive all day. Time for his nappy pretty soon.

    Clinton's chances for the White House on the rise - CNNPolitics.com

    Hillary Clinton's odds of winning the presidency rose from 78% last week to 91% Monday before Election Day, according to CNN's Political Prediction Market.

    They never said "Sure to win" and stated the poll results were just a few points different.

    Well, there you go....tell another lie.

    So, you don't think 91% chance to win is NOT sure to win? These are the same statistics, points, that were blasted everywhere, for months, usually followed by comments on how stupid Trump supporters are when they said that Trump was gonna win or had a chance to win.

    Lets cut the bullshit. Worldwide, most people and media thought Trump was gonna lose. It was flaunted all over the place by polls, fivethirtyeight, MSM, talking heads, insulting opinion pieces, ad nauseum.

    Hell, even myself, I thought HRC was gonna win.

    So no, there is no word of a lie and you know it. This isn't even really debatable as its just ridiculous to do so.

    Why say 91% change to win, if, in fact, they don't mean 91% chance to win?

    Love the revisionism going on, cnn was giving clunkton something like 269 seats, and trump a little over 200. According to them trump had to win all the toss up states to have a chance.



    They are just a fake news site.

    Sure to win = 100%

    Not 100% = Not sure to win

    Likely, probably, maybe are the adverbs that were used...never "sure"

    And again...the CNN report you quoted also pointed out the small differences in the polling percentages.

    This means while CNN is saying there's a 91% chance of HRC winning, educated people would have read this from that article:

    With one day to go before Election Day, CNN's Poll of Polls shows Clinton leading Trump by a narrow 4-point margin: 46% to 42%.
    Which means that anything could happen.....

    That's the difference...educated people read the details, fuckwits only read the headlines....

    yeah, let's cut the bullshit.

    every legitimate polling company had clinton winning but that doesn't make their polling results "fake news". and it doesn't make the MSM reporting on those results, "fake news" it just turned out the polls were wrong. not by much ( the results in WI, MI and PA were very close), but wrong all the same.

    fake news is when some organization deliberately publishes misinformation.

    Well longway, the report hasn't been disputed in Snopes so it must be true, right.
    Let's use your standard for believability on this one.

    Just the opposite dumbass. Snopes didn't touch the catheter issue as it's true and they are biased towards Clinton. If they don't do this one, then they have lost all integrity and don't want to debunk a meme made up in reddit to troll the lsm and is now part of an cia report.

    You waking up to the bs finally, or are you still a is bitter clinger?

    The death throes of a desperate establishment; have they reached rock bottom or can that sink lower.

    Keep it up please, it's like they are intent on slitting their own throats. Who is going to believe them now? It's sad as the media are an integral part of a free society, but they are not up to the job.
