Fake news channels and newspaper suffering credibility crisis
by Alex Bruce
It’s been weeks since the Mueller Report was released, showing no Russian collusion in the bogus case against Trump, yet the Resist movement within the Mainstream Media continues full steam ahead to impeach the President.
Despite their viewership having dropped by one third in the past month and despite CNN receiving one sixth of the viewers of FOXNEWS, they don’t seem to be correcting themselves in any way or adjusting the tenor of their hysterical broadcasts. This is odd, also considering that they were hit by a $375M lawsuit from “MAGA Teen” Nick Sandmann, similar to the $350M lawsuit he filed against the Washington Post and the $275M case he filed yesterday against NBC/MSNBC, after these woke stalwarts of the MSM all piled on this innocent boy and irreversibly damaged his reputation with false accusations, simply because he was wearing a MAGA hat.
Sandmann will win these cases and several similar cases yet to be filed. Neither CNN, Washington Post nor NBC have expressed any contrition over their recklessness and their abject debasement of any semblance of journalism. They appear prepared to continue propagating malicious, Fake News and Sedition indefinitely. These household names are all courting the revocation of their broadcast licenses. It’s an extremely bizarre moment in US broadcasting history.
Tim Pool tells us that the same is true on the Internet, with this report that Google-YouTube’s parent company, Alphabet has lost $70 billion in in market capitalization, due to collapsed ad revenue from propagating their malevolent censorship algorithms upon us.
As someone who prospered for 5 years with online advertising but whose advertising revenue was cut by 90% from one month to the next, without any explanation or any hope of one, I feel somewhat vindicated today with this news. I knew that the small businesses that advertised on my site through Google’s AdSense platform had targeted my niche and were happily getting results. This policy, which hit me at the beginning of the 2016 election cycle and which was supposed to be about forcing the creation of content that was more “advertising friendly” was really about limiting the kind of content that the advertisers could choose from.
I want to get to the bottom of how all of these companies stay afloat, since they completely flout real market forces. Who is paying CNN and WaPo to lie hysterically like that, day in and day out? How long can this crazy state of affairs persist?

Another week, another opportunity for the corporate media to send the Internet into a frenzy and divide the nation over a fake controversy based on sloppy news reporting.
For the last week the “mainstream media” and their loyal followers have been freaking out over a video purporting to show a conflict between a group of Catholic boys attending the anti-abortion March for Life and a group of Indigenous people celebrating Indigenous People’s Day in Washington D.C.
The situation became even more toxic due to the fact that the boys were wearing Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats and allegedly shouting “Build The Wall!”.
Meanwhile, Nathan Phillips, one of the indigenous marchers, walked into the crowd of high school teenagers and eventually stood face to face with a student named Nick Sandman. Phillips played his drum and sang his prayers while staring in the face of the smirking teenager.
Like clockwork, the pundits obsessed over whether the boys smirk was racist and whether he should be crucified. On the other side of the fence we saw Internet sleuths tracking the movements of Phillips to see if it was him who initiated the conflict by forcing his way into the group of innocent Catholic boys. And within days the whole narrative fell apart.
As typical, we now know that the situation was more complex. In fact, it appears a third party – the Black Hebrews or Israelites – caused the most trouble by hurling bigoted epithets at the boys and the Indigenous marchers.
And, once again, the corporate media proves they are not to be trusted (and neither are some of your Facebook friends, apparently). But, rather than simply complain about the lack of accountability and quality of the corporate journalist hacks, I choose to focus on individual personal responsibility.
I want to encourage all consumers of news to hold yourself to a higher standard. Rather than simply reacting to new information and immediately posting on social media, take a few moments to breathe, reflect, and research.
One last point: It seems the true reason the two groups were in Washington D.C. has been lost in the drama surrounding the interaction between Sandman and Phillips. The Catholic boys were there with their school in support of the March for Life, an annual rally that protests the legality of abortion.
Nathan Phillips and the Indigenous marchers were in D.C. to raise awareness on environmental issues facing Indigenous communities, as well as the thousands of Indigenous women who have gone missing in the U.S. and Canada.
The boys and other supporters attending the March for Life likely felt the same sense of urgency the supporters of the Indigenous People’s Day expressed. Both groups feel strongly about their causes; but instead of talking about those issues, the media has been focusing on whether a smirk was racist. Turn off the television and take control of your own mind.
