Fake News Fuckery.

Screen grab from Trump campaign ‘First 100 Days’ commercial (YouTube).

Oh, that 100 Day stuff that the Tiny Tyrant pretended to dismiss as not important. Apparently, it was important enough to work up a propaganda spot, touting the great achievements of Trump. Christ, nothing is going to improve my mood this day. Now the regime henchpeople are having a fit because CNN won’t air the ad. Oh my.

President Donald Trump’s campaign apparatus on Tuesday lashed out at CNN for allegedly refusing to air a commercial touting accomplishments made in the president’s first 100 days.

The 30-second ad, which began airing on Monday, praises Trump for the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and for proposing the “biggest tax cut plan in history.” It also blasts the media, flashing the words “FAKE NEWS” over the faces of anchors, reporters and broadcasters.

A memo from the Trump-Pence campaign announced on Tuesday that CNN had refused to air the commercial.



According to Politico’s Hadas Gold, CNN is refusing to air the spot until the Trump campaign removes the words “fake news” from the faces of network anchors.

“CNN requested that the advertiser remove the false graphic that the mainstream media is ‘fake news’,” a statement from the network said. “The mainstream media is not fake news, and therefore the ad is false and per policy will be accepted only if that graphic is deleted.”

    When I see the shouting about fake news I have a crawly scared feeling that it’s probably been fake all along and one of the many reasons Trumpenfuhrer is so unpopular in certain quarters is that he’s ruining the carefully constructed consensual surreality. It’s going to trigger a race to the bottom, just watch.

    We’ll disseminate your propaganda for you if you just don’t make us look bad in it.

    Reminds me of the open letter from the Russian journalist to his American peers. He said something about how your ‘friends’ will step over and around your bodies and keep chasing access nuggets as if you never existed.

    Journalists need to understand that this is divide and conquer, with an added layer of disarm and subjugate. They need to be sticking up for eachother -- Solidarity! That’s the last thing anyone can expect from to scoop-crazy bloviating crowd.
