Axios does a piece on how the above three things are twisted by Trump, the President of the United States….
Up to now we had President’s who were politicians….
They mostly read from thesame script on how the American Government and the World operated….
Those who voted for a guy to ‘shake things up’ have gotten what they voted for….
Donald Trump operates on a different wave length of reality ….
The King of Choas is NOT what the majority of Americans want or like according to polls …..
His quest to emulate other politican’s who ‘rule’ rather than govern increasing has us worried….
There is constand pushback….
The media moves to state the ‘facts’ , as they see things…
In doing so , despite Trump’s ‘fake news’ rants?
The media IS more trusted than he is…
Things will get no better in the near future as Trump muddles thru a second term…
But there are those who actually believe the guy….
And THAT IS scary….
The Russian’s have been very succesful in tricking a fool who leads a country the world has counted on …..
Russina President Putin is winning the openings of WWIII….
His techniques — especially claiming bad or unwanted news is “fake news” — are getting copied worldwide, just as evil actors like Russia are getting better at spreading misinformation. Here’s a snapshot:
- Despots use fake news as a weapon: Leaders or state media in at least 15 countrieshave used the term “fake news” to try to quell dissent or defuse questions about human rights violations.
- In the U.S.: Within seconds of any major attack or shooting, fake news (real fake news: news that is actually false) starts circulating about the suspect and victims, forcing tech platforms to apologize for surfacing news from faulty sources — think Vegas shooting, Grand Central bombing, etc.
- Elsewhere in the West: In Spain, Russian state-backed news organizations and bots “promoted digital misinformation and outright fake news” about the politically charged vote in Catalonia, according to the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab. That’s in addition to fake news campaigns to meddle with elections this year in the U.S., U.K., France and Germany…..
