Do we still use the -gate suffix?

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Sometimes FakeNews is the sin of omitting the truth.

Image

CNN and some talking heads went bananas when Trump saluted a North Korean General.

Of course, the General saluted him first (as it should be) and the return salute is an act of respect and not an act of submission.

But since the left can't meme, they are trying to turn this FakeNews into a thing and thus pointing out the stark difference.

Trump gets saluted, Obama kow tows.

What if someone thinks both criticisms are silly?

I think you took the wrong point gnome. My point is that trumpists are setup for an easy win by this rotgut. Not that they are correct.

The righties were having a field day when this happened. "Look, even the NK generals salute Trump, lol. God emperor confirmed."

The lefties dont realize these memes don't affect the Trumpists, they just drink the salty tears.

Finally a great way to fight the scourge of fake news (for a mere 300 bucks for the less expensive option)!

Better than FakeNews.... Recycled FakeNews!

The Supreme Court has CNN dusting off ye olde "Muslim Ban" lie.

The ACLU which should know that immigration is under the executive branches' control, but decided to tweet the narrative (tm) anyway!

We need to prevent all of the Muslims coming in from North Korea.

Chad, apparently, got rid of their Muslims. Send them to Holland I think.

In a Dan Rather-esque ‘fake but accurate‘ manner Time Magazine has issued a retraction for their fake news story that liberal hand-wringers world wide republished and spread by social media
.
The Daily Mail reports: Quote:
Time magazine has issued a correction to a controversial cover story about a Honduran migrant girl who they said was taken from her mother by US border patrol agents after it was revealed that the pair were never separated at all.
...
As millions shared Yanela’s photograph on social media and attached to fundraisers for other children who have been separated from their families, Time used it on its cover. The magazine photoshopped an image to place her at the foot of a towering Donald Trump and the words ‘Welcome to America’ appeared next to it.

In the story, despite Moore having told the magazine that he did not know what became of the girl after he took the picture, the journalist wrote that she had been taken away like the thousands of other children who have been.

Time issued its correction on Friday after US and Honduran officials, along with the girl’s father, confirmed that this was not the case.

‘The original version of this story misstated what happened to the girl in the photo after she (was) taken from the scene.

‘The girl was not carried away screaming by US Border Patrol agents; her mother picked her up and the two were taken away together,’ the magazine said.
Then Skank Of America could start in...

How is that a "fake-but-accurate" statement? It sounds like a straight retraction.

I agree how foolish in the first place but that's an odd claim.

If I see a crying child on my screen, it means someone is trying to manipulate me into giving more power to their favorite faction.

It is a standard generic propaganda thing to do.


Later, I may look for an example of one done by ... you know ... :godwin:

CBS also issued a retraction for what Dan "fake but accurate" Rather did.
