SHARYL ATTKISSON HEROICALLY EXPOSES THE BIASES OF SELF-PROCLAIMED “FACT CHECKERS”

masc graveyard newWHO CHECKS THE “FACT CHECKERS?” It’s no secret that the Democrats have transformed every aspect of life into an ugly political situation. “The personal is the political” is the shallow line that they have pushed for decades now in order to justify the insertion of their political prejudices into the lives of everyone around them.

“Education” (LMAO), news reporting and Social Media fell to Democrat power politics long ago, especially the Democrats’ discriminatory hiring practices and tendency to want people fired or censored for expressing ANY opinion with which even the most emotionally fragile Democrat disagrees. Therefore it came as no surprise that Teacher’s Unions, media outlets and Social Media tycoons make their political donations almost exclusively to Democrat candidates. 

One of the biggest downsides to this has been the death of ANY attempt at objectivity. No “experts” or “authorities” or – most ridiculously of all – “fact checkers” are to be trusted anymore. Self-proclaimed Fact Checkers serve no purpose except confirmation bias for their target audience.

Sharyl AttkissonSharyl Attkisson, the Ida Tarbell of the 21st Century, has done a deep dive into the biases and prejudices of “fact checking.” The link is below, but first some excerpts:

“That discord is likely to persist because in large part the fact-checking solution is illusory. Many such efforts fail because they amount to a circular feedback loop of verification. The fact-checkers are like-minded journalists or often liberal Silicon Valley gatekeepers, who frequently rely on partisan news sources and political activists to control narratives on a wide variety of issues and controversies. This small group of players exerts an oversized influence, using fact checks to shape and censor information.” 

In that same article Attkisson covered one of Twitter’s absurd “fact checks” … about a hypothetical situation that hasn’t even happened (or not happened) yet – 

“Like many questionable “fact checks” at issue, Twitter’s critique wasn’t really a fact check at all. It used past reporting from selected partisan news sources to claim that a prediction about what could happen in the future is untrue — before it even happens or doesn’t happen. It was, in short, a Democratic Party talking point.”

” … today’s brand of “fact-checking” is rarely cut and dry, such as verifying the date an event occurred. Now, fact checks are frequently used to litigate matters of opinion or debate, and to proclaim the truth about facts that are unknown, or cannot possibly be known, at the time. They commonly provide what they call the “context” they claim is necessary to assess a factual claim, rather than a simple assessment of whether a statement is correct or incorrect. As a result, many factually correct statements are deemed to be “half true” or “mostly false.”  “

“Keeping this in mind, the biggest inherent flaw with efforts to fact-check information may lie in the qualifications, bias, and conflicts of interest among the ranks of the fact-checkers themselves. One example is the fact-checking nonprofit First Draft, started by Google at the beginning of the 2016 election cycle. Google is owned by Alphabet, Inc. Alphabet executives and employees comprise a politically active group that ranks among the largest political donors to Democrats in the country. During the 2016 campaign, Alphabet was led by an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter and campaign volunteer, executive chairman Eric Schmidt.” Continue reading

SHARYL ATTKISSON’S LIST OF 107 NEWS MEDIA MISTAKES IN COVERING TRUMP

Sharyl AttkissonIt’s no secret that Sharyl Attkisson is one of the few actual journalists left in the United States.

Her lawsuit over illegal action against her by the DOJ is ongoing but she continues to bravely follow the truth no matter where it leads her. 

mascot new look donkey and elephant headsAttkisson has been compiling a list of the most egregious errors (some might call them intentional misrepresentations) committed by “reporters” in the last few years. Again, she just covers the inaccuracies from alleged “news” sites, not the ramblings of shallow, uninformed and emotionally unstable entertainers. Her list would be much longer otherwise.

To quote Attkisson, who is considerate enough to lump herself in with her colleagues, who have lapsed into much lower standards than she herself maintains: Continue reading

SHARYL ATTKISSON’S REMINDER OF PROOF THAT HILLARY’S 2016 CAMPAIGN COLLUDED WITH UKRAINE AGAINST TRUMP

Sharyl AttkissonSharyl Attkisson, the Ida Tarbell of the 21st Century, weighed in with some more clarity in the midst of all the bizarre anti-Trump fascism coming from the Democrats. On social media she posted a reminder that even the Democrats at Politico had run an article about Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign colluding with Ukraine against Trump’s presidential campaign. 

Sharyl Attkisson🕵️‍♂️

@SharylAttkisson

One of the strangest phenoms the last few days is those who insist Russia not Ukraine interfered in our elections, as if it’s impossible to be both (?) One succinct article documents it quite well, has firsthand accounts, and has never been “discredited.” https://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/ukraine-sabotage-trump-backfire-233446 

And for a Politico video (link below) about all this, titled “UKRAINIAN EFFORTS TO SABOTAGE TRUMP BACKFIRE” with a sub-heading “Kiev officials are scrambling to make amends with the president-elect after quietly working to boost Clinton.”

HEROIC JOURNALIST SHARYL ATTKISSON CONTINUES THE FIGHT TO EXPOSE EVEN MORE OF OBAMA’S CRIMES

Sharyl AttkissonSharyl Attkisson, the Ida Tarbell of the 21st Century, is virtually the only journalist left in the United States. She courageously continues her lawsuit demanding full disclosure of Barack Obama’s illegal targeting of her for electronic surveillance. (So many other reporters were just Democrat publicists happy to write Obama Fan Fiction, meaning there was no need to harass them like Obama harassed Attkisson.)  

In addition to that she has been at the forefront of detailed reporting on Obama and Hillary’s illegal collusion with Russia and their total corruption of America’s “Intelligence Agencies” (LMAO) in whitewashing investigations of Hillary while conducting plots to destroy the incoming Trump Administration.

Clearly, Obama and Hillary paniced when Crooked Hillary lost to President Trump and it became clear that all of these scandals would come to the surface without Hillary in office to cover them up. Deciding the best defense is a good offense, Hillary and other Trump foes have been playing their ridiculous game pretending the president colluded with Russians. 

For people who still have trouble following all the misdeeds of Obama and Hillary and the assorted thugs who did their bidding here is a link to one of Attkisson’s items providing a handy guide. CLICK HERE

THREE FOR SUNDAY

Sharyl Attkisson

SHARYL ATTKISSON’S LATEST BOOK – Balladeer’s Blog has often praised the courageous Sharyl Attkisson as the 21st Century Ida Tarbell and as the only journalist left in America.

In her latest book Smeared, Attkisson examines the overwhelming political bias – often corporate-motivated – that afflicts television news operations. Click HERE 

Obama laughing2016 SAW A SIXTY-ONE PERCENT INCREASE IN POLICE OFFICERS GETTING KILLED IN THE U.S. – The Obama Legacy at its clearest! Barack Obama thrived on hatred and division. He always ignored the fact that the overwhelming majority of African-American murders are committed by other African-Americans.

The poverty and crime that spawn that tragic reality are too difficult to tackle, however. Instead, Obama and the Democrats always made heroes out of African-American criminals who killed innocent African-Americans – especially if they also killed cops. To Little Barry innocent African-American children gunned down by gangs in Chicago and elsewhere might as well not even exist.    

George W Bush chimpGEORGE W BUSH: STILL GARBAGE AFTER ALL THESE YEARS – No matter how you feel about President Donald Trump you have GOT to admit it is great that we did not get another Bush or Clinton in the White House. Listening to the impotent sniveling of Jeb Bush, George W Bush and the rest of the repulsive Bush Family is great entertainment.

Conveniently forgetting how hated and despised his own criminal family is, George W “I think it would be FUN to invade Iraq on flimsy premises” Bush dared to show his face in public this week. “Dubya” called for key players in America’s cesspool of political corruption to circle the wagons to block any hope of reforming our pathetic system. He accused people who wanted to end the White Privilege of people like the Bushes of being “racists” and did it with his usual blank, compassionless Paddington Bear expression on his face.

FAKEBOOK: THERE’S A REASON IT’S CALLED THAT

Sharyl Attkisson

America’s sole remaining journalist.

Sharyl Attkisson, the 21st Century Ida Tarbell, recently interviewed Data Analyst Kenneth Brown regarding his recent study that revealed how over roughly 60% of Fakebook Facebook’s posts trying to defend Obamacare are FRAUDULENT.

Brown’s study found that 226,000 Facebook posts pretending Obamacare worked were generated by just 40,000 profiles and behind those profiles he further narrowed activity down to just ONE HUNDRED PAID POSTERS.

The link is below but first some excerpts about how such phony “grassroots” online posts are done …  

” …by digital activists pretending to be regular people.

“Digital activists are paid employees; their purpose is to attack anyone who’s posting something contrary to the view the page owner wants expressed,” he told Attkisson. 

Brown: “Sixty percent of all the posts were made from 100 profiles, posting between the hours of 9 and 5 Pacific Time.”

Sharyl: “Which means what?”

Brown: “They were paid to post.” Continue reading

NEWSGATE 2016: SHARYL ATTKISSON ON WIKILEAKS AND PRESS-TITUTES

Sharyl Attkisson

America’s sole remaining journalist.

Reporter Sharyl Attkisson is the Ida Tarbell of the 21st Century and may be the last actual journalist in the American media. Careers could be made covering the countless scandals of the bought and paid for criminal Hillary Clinton, but instead reporters are openly covering for her.

Sharyl Attkisson has been persecuted by the Obama Administration for uncovering some of Barack’s own crimes. Meanwhile Hillary’s supporters – better known as “accessories after the fact” – pretend it’s “brave” to obsess over Donald Trump. (By the way, America’s corporate media has made me wonder if Trump is the most honest billionaire in history given the absolute nothings that they try to make Trump “scandals” out of.)
