Fake News

In Support of Information Clearing House:

“Fake News” is itself a misnomer. Using the term implies journalists are liars and the news is something made up out of thin air. And to say it’s not fake, suggests one believes it’s the truth. The term only serves those attempting to keep the public divided.

A better term for today’s corporate story of events would be propagandized news: Using political bias to select one story over another, presenting an incomplete accounting where emphasis is skewed, and creating an either-or argument that manipulates the public toward the editor’s position.

But regardless of what we call it, corporate news is not where anyone wishing to be informed should be basing their stance.

I recommend Information Clearing House as your first stop when looking for expert nonpartisan opinion and analysis to help clarify and better understand the issues driving our world today.
