So I’m guessing you heard the cry about Fake News. Today when we are talking media our first thought is the so-called real news sites like ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NY Times, Washington Post, etc. But now we have to add in news aggregators Facebook, Google, and Twitter with their “moments” feature.
Here’s a very quick look at the evolution of news gathering and why they’re calling it fake.
Most notably Donald Trumps fingertips. He saw that his Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts get a quicker response, cost a lot less than running commercials, and reaches a whole lot of people.
So what’s the problem? Ad Buys, the amount of advertising purchased from Trump in some states were NONE! As opposed to the traditional model that Hillary Clinton took, spending much more than Trump. Trump was proof that Traditional Media is hurting. They had a 64.6% market share, in 2016 down to 60.9% and is projected to go down to 57.5% in 2017. In contrast, Digital Media had 35.4%, 39.1% and in 2017 will be 42.5%. We’re talking BIG BUCK? for the old world of advertising in TV, Magazine, and Radio.
Here’s an Adweek headline that sums it up. Their freaking out!
Ok, so now we know the monetary motivation behind the headlines.
But who other than the tabloids showing alien babies started Fake News?
Well, It’s actually the news organizations that are complaining about it, the mainstream media. I never would have started this website had I been able to depend on their reporting as we all thought we could.
But while we thought we were being informed we were being directed by lies designed to manipulate millions of people who don’t have the time to find out what we all now know. Through Wikileaks, Project Veritas, Foxnews, One America News Network and all of us citizen journalists our eyes are now open. What they did unleash was a lot of angry people, some reacting with lies as they did, others trying desperately to spread the truth like for blogging out loud)).
So now Facebook is looking to cut advertising to the ones they consider fake news. Considering that Facebook, Google and Twitter lean left how can they be the ones monitoring anyone? For that matter who would monitor the biased news?
What difference is an alien baby vs. telling us that the Clinton Foundation is honest? Or that Hillary doesn’t lie. As Hillary Clinton said at the Benghazi hearings “What difference at this point does it make?” Well, you reap what you sow, there is no more turning back from the fact that we now know everything they do is to alter our minds. This sounds like words from a book like 1984.
January 22, 1984, Apple ran a commercial where this cool new computer was fighting Big Brother, IBM computers. Apple wanted to symbolize the idea of empowerment. The idea that a single person with their little computer can do what big companies were only able to do.
So this chick throws a hammer at the screen and the clones (you and I) wake up, she represented Apple, and they were on their way to mimic big brother, but a cooler one. The first stage of making John Doe the town crier.
Hmm? I, now as a content creator and aggregator of news feel EMPOWERED! I will resist Big Brother news corporations as they try to make me one of those mindless drones in the Apple commercial. I can find my opinion of news by viewing the same story from different news sites and make my own opinion. And that is what the for blogging out loud)) website does. They made me scream as loud as I could, for as long as I could, until I couldn’t take it anymore and before I became insane I created this site. I am EMPOWERED!
So, Who you calling FAKE?))
