When their Anointed One (Hillary Clinton) lost the election, big television news networks and primary newspapers coined the term “fake news” because they were angry at alternative media for eroding deep into their domain. It was time to expose these fakers because audiences were fleeing to alternatives to establishment media as certainly as they fled to alternatives to establishment politicians.
So, to launch a war on their competition, the mainstream media employed their standard sound-byte strategy that has worked well for them in the past. They simultaneously started circulating the new talking point “fake news” to try to stop the migration of audiences toward alternative news sites. It was time to point out how they, the mainstream media, do a superior job of editing out the baloney for you, LOL!
MSM launched the term “fake news” millions of people readily grabbed the useful moniker and hung it like a lead collar around the necks of the MSM. They didn’t see that coming! Now, the members of the establishment media are beside themselves because they can’t claw the collar off.
Besides losing their audiences, the fake-stream media also finds they now face an incoming president who doesn’t even pretend to put up with their bulls*t and who is willing to simply ignore them as being too wishy-washy to be worthy of his time. Instead, he refuses to take their questions and turns to their competitors.
This really marks the End of Corporate Media and they will never recover, they are broken without remedy!
