fake new has always been part of the United States
how do you think the US Empire was built?
how do you think the people have been fooled since 1776 and prior?

almost the entire world knew George W. Bush was lying about WMD
but the US news media went along with that horrendous lie
result was destruction of Iraq and chaos in the Middle East

fake/propaganda news played a major role in US war against Spain in 1898
(newspapermen William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer
were the founding fathers of yellow journalism)

Trump is a born liar
his lies per day have been on the rise
probably it’s proportionate to his fear of losing power
2017 saw Trump making 2,140 claims that were fake or untrue
it just about doubled in the first six months of 2018
any genuine criticism of his cruel actions or brutal policies
is countered by Trump as “fake news”

undoubtedly, Trump has been lying openly and limitlessly
whereas the dominant media lies in a sneaky and controlled manner
