Sarah Palin’s Should Focus on “Fake News” She Promotes


palin-rage-three

It was just three days ago that I devoted an entire post to Sarah Palin’s promotion of “Fake News”.  She highlighted a story about a reporter with the Washington Post that never happened.  She never issued an apology or retraction.

Today she climbs onto her soap box to suggest that the media is guilty of promoting “fake news.”  The story Palin complains about was a story of two students who faked an assault on a Muslim girl.  If reporters were deceived, the students involved intended that result.  If the students involved were criticized, it was their intention to gain attention.  Perhaps they should apologize to the media for staging the assault?

Palin said:

“Talk about fake news.

Think Lawrence will issue a retraction?

Doubt it.

We aren’t exactly dealing with the most classy guy in the world.”

 

The video, titled “Welcome to Washburn,” went viral since it was posted to Facebook, with more than 6.5 million views, more than 161,000 shares and more than 29,000 comments — many supporting the girl, who appears to be defending herself.  The realityis that the video was staged and has now been removed.  Perhaps this is a commentary on the effect of social media.  When something is posted on Facebook or appears on Twitter, there is a real possibility that the story is false.  Thus the very politicians, like Trump and Palin, who communicate through social media, are the very reason that stories like this are believed.  Trump and Palin can create news that has no basis in reality or fact, but people believe them.

  1. Did Putin teach sara? or did sara teach Putin? and did both teach trump? or did trump teach both? as we know McCain had a special look on his face in 08 when sara resigned suddenly. We know stinky little sara rigged her little elections in Alaska by fake news, emails and attack the attacker type campaign. Sweet pos too far away to help rig trump election….

    Trying to follow her comments and trying to make sense of them is impossible. It is as if she types out every strange and incoherent thought that floats through her head.

  4. Fake news requires research and creativity. Palin’s verbal projectile word vomit is pure batshit from her cranium. In the old days we said someone who rambles like Palin has bats in the belfry.
