Lying, Crooked Hillary Clinton Blasts Fake News Calling it an “Epidemic” that Congress Should Take Action Against
FUNNY HOW HILLARY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT FAKE NEWS WHEN THE MSM SAID THAT DONALD TRUMP COULD NOT WIN …
Hillary Clinton bemoaned the “epidemic” of fake news and called on Congress to take action against it. Of course Hillary, Democrats and her minions blame fake news for her colossal, electoral college landslide loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton and her people blame every other than themselves and a candidate that stood for nothing and could not connect to John Q. Public. Hillary lost two elections that she was supposed to win because she was a terrible candidate.
So let’s understand this, she wants the government to determine what is and what is not fake news? ARE YOU KIDDING? Be very careful what you ask for, especially when it goes against the U.S. Constitution and the 1st Amendment of Freedom of Speech. I rarely, if every agree with the opinions, beliefs and ideology of The Young Turks, but I do on this one. Is there fake news, of course there is. Did it decide the election? Not a chance. Oh, because the MSM never spread fake news and propaganda to boost Hillary Clinton. Now you get a good look what a Hillary Clinton presidency would have looked like. She wants government to go after the 1st Amendment. Not only NO, HELL NO!!!
Hillary Clinton on Thursday decried the spread of fake news online, calling it an “epidemic” that Congress should take action against.
“The epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year — it’s now clear the so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” Clinton said during a speech on Capitol Hill.
Some Democrats have argued the spread of anti-Clinton fake news online contributed to her electoral loss to Donald Trump.
The issue has received renewed attention this week after a gunman entered a pizzeria in Washington that was at the center of a false viral conspiracy theory that alleged it was home to a pedophilia ring operated by Clinton and her inner circle.
Dick Cheney Says to CNN’s Barbara Starr: Trump Took Us To Point Where We “Don’t Need You Guys Anymore”
WILL TRUMP MAKE THE MSM IRRELEVANT OR HAVE THEY ALREADY DONE THAT TO THEMSELVES?
Over the weekend, former Vice President Dick Cheney and Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta discussed the new era of foreign policy under President-elect Donald Trump with CNN’s Barbara Starr at the Reagan Library. The media seems to be worried about Donald Trump’s tweets. That is when Cheney provided the following comment as to why maybe the MSM is in such a huff over Trump’s tweets, do they feel that they will be made irrelevant and not needed anymore? Funny line. I bet the media never thought they would miss Dick Cheney.
Honestly, since it is pretty much obvious, especially after the last election cycle that journalism is dead, maybe it is the media that made their own-self irrelevant.
“I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn’t have to rely upon, uh, rely upon — this is the modern era, modern technology. He’s at the point where we don’t need you guys anymore.”
FMR. VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY: One of the most important things [President-elect Trump] can do is exactly the opposite of what his predecessor did. With respect to Iran and nuclear weapons, and don’t make the mistakes that the situation he is inheriting from the Obama administration represented. With respect to our status in the world, the capabilities of our forces, the belief on the part of I believe many of our friends and allies that they can no longer trust the United States or count on our guarantees. I think we need to do major progress and reverse the Obama policies and not that’s not a place for President Trump to start.
BARBARA STARR, CNN: But Secretary Cheney, Mr. Vice President, you are someone who has a long history of being very precise in your words, in your thinking and your analysis. I’m not aware of anytime you ever said anything very casually. [Laughter]
CHENEY: Oh, now, Barbara.
STARR: At least that I can’t recall. I heard that Air Force general that you fired. Um, that’s another story we’ll get to later.
So, c’mon, let’s hear it. What are you — what is your, you know, you hear this casual language. And when I say that don’t go out tweeting that I am anti-this or anti-that. The language of tweets is not necessarily as nuanced and contextual as U.S. foreign policy is. I think that is something that we can all agree on. So when you see this, seriously, what concerns does it cause you? If you were sitting with him and could give him some advice about all of this — about language, about meaning of words — what would you say? What would your advice be?
CHENEY: Well, I, first of all, am not sitting with him.
STARR: Would you if asked?
CHENEY: Would if I asked?
STARR: Would you?
CHENEY: Certainly, if the President of the United States asks for advice. I would have been happy to advise Barack Obama but he never asked me. [Laughter]
STARR: So, again, language and words. [Laughter]
STARR: You see, the man never says anything casual.
CHENEY: I think he needs to be careful but he’ll learn as he goes along. I think he is putting some brains and good people with him. I am a big fan of Mike Pence. I know Mike well from his 12 years in the House and I think he’s a great choice as Vice President. He’s going to play a major role. I think Mr. Trump is taking very, very seriously the job that he has gotten now. Staffing up the administration.
I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn’t have to rely upon, uh, rely upon — this is the modern era, modern technology. He’s at the point where we don’t need you guys anymore.
ARE YOU KIDDING … TEEN SUES PARENTS FOR POSTING EMBARRASSING PICS ON FACEBOOK WITHOUT HER CONSENT …
In an age of social media narcissism where teens do nothing but post embarrassing pics of themselves, an 18 year old Austrian teen is suing her parents for posting photos of her without her consent. The teen claims that since 2009 they have made her life a misery by constantly posting photos of her, including embarrassing and intimate images from her childhood. It is the first of it’s kind case in Austria. No kidding? Why does this sound more like the whining nature of today’s immature millennials who can’t seem to cope with anything and think they can sue for being uncomfortable? Believe it or not, if it can be proven that the images have violated the teen’s rights to a personal life, her parents could lose the case and they could have to pay some financial compensation for her pain and suffering, and will also be liable for her legal costs. UNREAL. According to accounts, when the teen girl asked her parents to take them down, they refused. She stated, “I’m tired of not being taken seriously by my parents.” BINGO!!! There lies the issue. A frivolous lawsuit because a teen feels slighted by her parents.
A 18-year-old woman from Carinthia is suing her parents for posting photos of her on Facebook without her consent.
She claims that since 2009 they have made her life a misery by constantly posting photos of her, including embarrassing and intimate images from her childhood.
Her lawyer Michael Rami says that to date, her parents have posted 500 images of her on the social media site without her consent, and he believes she has a good chance of winning in court.
The shared images include baby pictures of her having her nappy changed and later potty training pictures.
“They knew no shame and no limit – and didn’t care whether it was a picture of me sitting on the toilet or lying naked in my cot – every stage was photographed and then made public,” the 18-year-old said. The photos were shared on Facebook with her parents’ 700 friend.
Despite her requests, they have refused to delete the photos – prompting her to sue them. “I’m tired of not being taken seriously by my parents”, she said. Her father believes that since he took the photos he has the right to publish the images.

MTV plans to put the MUSIC back in MTV …
As reported at the LA Times, What’s old is new: MTV plots a major return to music. Wow, imagine that, MTV finally realizes after a terrible past 25 years of programming that the “M” in MTV actually stands for music. I have to admit and I am about to date myself, I remember the very first day and song that MTV hit TV. How can you forget the music video, Video Killed the Radio Star by the Buggles. In 1981 it was a ground breaking event when a 24 hour music television was born. And yes, I had such a crush on Martha Quinn
Then MTV decided to go the way of the dodo and do everything and anything except music. They had an opportunity to ride the wave and they went the wrong direction. However, for MTV is probably too late and too much innovation has taken place since 1981, because just as Video killed the Radio star, the Internet and social media may have killed MTV.
MTV’s original show
For much of the modern era, the word music in the MTV acronym has been an afterthought, a vestige of an earlier time and identity.
That’s all about to change.
Under the guidance of new President Sean Atkins, the youth network is embarking on a redo that will put music at its center.
With ratings flat or down in a number of time periods, MTV is turning to songs as its savior. The network is prepping a new version of its classic “Unplugged”; a music competition show in the world of hip-hop produced by Mark Burnett; and an L.A.-set live-music series titled “Wonderland.” The last one is MTV’s first such program in about two decades.
Though much of the network’s success this century has come via nonscripted series with little connection to bands (“Jersey Shore,” “The Hills”)–and though original scripted programming remains the rage across much of the cable dial — MTV believes it will fare better by returning to its roots.
“The thing that kept coming back when I first started this job was, ‘Why doesn’t MTV do more music?” Atkins said in an interview. “Music is our muse, our spirit animal. And it’s a great muse to have. So we’re leaning into it.”
