More #FakeNews from Former News Magazine Newsweek

CNN, for once, has the real story, rather than Newsweek's fake news.

Short story: The tree is in danger of falling unexpectedly. It is currently only being held up by artificial support (cables, etc.), but those cables aren't enough to keep the thing from crashing to the ground and maybe killing someone or damaging the White House.

Specialists at the United States National Arboretum were brought in by the White House to assess the Magnolia grandiflora, as it is specifically termed. According to documents obtained exclusively by CNN, the tree must be removed, and quickly, despite efforts to preserve it over several decades. The documents read in part:

"The overall architecture and structure of the tree is greatly compromised and the tree is completely dependent on the artificial support. Without the extensive cabling system, the tree would have fallen years ago. Presently, and very concerning, the cabling system is failing on the east trunk, as a cable has pulled through the very thin layer of wood that remains. It is difficult to predict when and how many more will fail."

The decision to remove the tree was ultimately made by first lady Melania Trump after she assessed all of the professional information and accompanying historical documents.

Now, here's how "News" Week clickbaited it:



The story now says it's been "updated" with new information from the CNN article, which suggests the original story did not note that the tree crumbling and was an actual hazard.

Selena Zito is ashamed of her profession:



MZ Hemingway, who is branded by the liberal Republican "Resistance" as being a propagandist for Trump because she points out that the liberal media often lies, is similarly critical:



How many lies does the media get to tell and still whine about their loss of credibility?

And say-- remember when CNN altered its video to make it appear that Trump decided on his own to dump the food into the koi pond, selectively zooming in the video so you could not see he was merely following President Abe's lead?

23 Its odd, how bad the news has gotten. I mean its always been pretty bad -- notoriously they never got a story right -- but lately its like they're deliberately trying to be awful. Pointlessly so, as well.

I remember well January of this year with major news outlets like the New York Times declaring that since Trump is such a monster they were changing the rules of journalism and going to straight out anti-Trump work rather than just news coverage.

It was a jaw-dropping admission. I mean they had been doing it already, but to come straight out and admit it in print was shocking. It was a direct admission that they didn't view their job as informing but as shaping and controlling.

President Trump has been great at kicking them in the teeth for this. The internet has made it very, very difficult for them to get away with what they used to routinely.

Remember this story: Ronald Reagan cuts free lunch budgets in schools, claiming Ketchup is a vegetable, remember that?

It was just a BS rumor. Someone told a reporter that's what he said, and they ran with it. But in the 1980s there was no internet, there was no voice for anyone to gainsay their rumors and lies. So now its presumed fact. Its treated as historical proof of Reagan's stupidity and evil toward kids.

Now they can't dot it so much any longer but they are trying it even more

37 But that tree has historical significance!

About 200 years ago, in the year 1919, a family of newly freed slaves set up a camp on the White House lawn. There they planted a tomato tree so they could feed their family. President John Tyler, weary from the Spanish-American War and relieved at its recent end, took pity on the family, invited them indoors in order to share Swiss Miss, and allowed the tree to stand.

Now the Trumps want to destroy the tree and all that it represents.

They can chop down the tree, but they cannot erase the history it represents!

41 Almost every single fake news story starts out with a rumor or a tip by someone that the news then just runs without checking or asking. Because it says what they want said, or implies something they find politically useful.

An editor in the 1980s even would have spiked these stories instantly as being unsubstantiated and not news. it is not news that "someone says somebody says something" That is hearsay, it is rumor. Not news.

I would love to start up a Twitter account and do nothing with it except edit social media news posts like an old time editor would: strip out that opinion, strip out that leading word, strip out that passive voice, strip out that unsupported claim. But I don't have the time and energy and don't know the newspaper lingo to make it really effective.

I'd love it if someone else would, though. Not partisan, not political, just straight business: this is poorly written. Doesn't matter who it affects, what the story is, or where the source is. Just savage them for incompetence, not bias.

But nott all of it. Some of it is flat out lying because they think they can get away with because they have for so long.

Whenever CNN reports about anything to do with Russia dossier remember they have known since last year that it was fake because they have contact with Fusion GPS. Evan Perez who does most of the Fusion related reporting is good friends with the founders of Fusion.

He is knowingly lying to the American public about stuff far more important than dead trees.

Well there's a lot of crappy writing and poor journalism that's positive toward President Trump and conservatism as well, and that should be savaged. My concern is the quality of journalism, its craftsmanship.

The media has always had its bias, but at least in years past there were enough people that cared about the job of being a reporter that they would try to do it well.

We need that, we need reporting, we need the news. Its critical that we are informed about events and policies and ideas and peoples. And we're not getting that now, except by tooth and claw. We shouldn't have to bludgeon the truth out of news sources, they should sell it to us.

Around 1970, it's believed one of the leaders broke off from the other two and was removed, and its cavity was exposed, leaving the entire tree susceptible to decay. As such, the cavity was filled in with cement, a procedure not advisable today, but which at the time was deemed the proper course of action. The concrete did irretrievable damage and in 1981, it was removed and replaced with a large pole and cable system, which remain today, holding up the remaining leaders.

The people need an education in propaganda. Of course they're getting it now but how many realize what's going on?

Its really quite pathetic.

I mean, if President Obama had married Iman or something I'd have had to admit, wow she's very pretty and classy looking. That doesn't mean I cannot oppose Obama's policies. But no, he married Michelle and they had to pretend she was this lovely fashion plate despite being nothing of the sort.

Some day I hope you'll come to understand that being better is actually... you know, better. That there is virtue and morality that matters more than victory, and that some paths, some tactics are not worth doing even if they seem effective. To take the road of doing anything that seems most useful and likely to succeed no matter what it entails is bad for everyone, particularly ourselves.

This is where you claim white knighthood and high moral ground while we lose blah blah false dichotomy. There are things we can and must do that might be morally troubling in more peaceful times or times of health and stability. That much is obvious to all but the weakest intellect. But that gray area does not mean that we should engage in wholesale family slaughter, at any time.

Trump is the greatest present ever, the press lose their shit over anything he does, it's incredible to see.I didn't like Trump but my god, he is like a light that got turned on and you realize that the press was always lying to us, now we see it in real time. I watched an old video of realtime coverage of when Reagan was shot and it's night and day.

I don't think it is incompetence. I'm starting to think journalists are being trained to do this. As if as an exercise they are presented with a list of facts comprising a hypothetical story and then have to come up with a headline and article for "how to slant things to make party A in the story look good?" "how to slant things to make party B look good?"

You keep suggesting this is a competence issue, as if people aren't aware of what they're doing. I think the bias is a skill that is being intentionally honed.

187 @140 I think the media is really torn on Melania. She's literally an immigrant, she speaks a bunch of languages, she's gorgeous and classy, she's clearly a good person and yet, to praise her makes her husband look good by comparison so they are mostly just mum about her like she doesn't exist.
-------------------------

I don't think it's that. There's a certain degree of contempt toward any woman who's an attractive foreigner, marries an American man, and lives in the States with him. Regardless of her actual status and accomplishments, she gets tarred to a certain degree with the "mail order bride" thing. I suspect the media holds her in contempt because of the two items I mentioned (as well as the fact that her husband is a Republican, of course), and as a result will refuse to allow anything that might cast her in a positive light.

He sounds like a teenage girl.

They are incensed at Trump because he doesn't have their approved pedigree. That undermines their elite position, almost as if all their expertise is a sham and that real-world experience actually counts, not their sheepskin from the Right School, not their imported ties, not their tailored suits with the Right Name on the inside pocket.

It's all about Class and Pedigree to these people, and Trump is just Unclean.

There's no living with people like that, not when they seek control. The entire Ruling Class is going to have to be deposed and run out of town or they're just going to rebuild their monopoly when they (or term limits) finally get him out of the way.

No, the reason why you take out the family is not simply because they are "related" you not only wipe them out but them, their neighbors, their shrink, the guy who made their sandwich...

You make even being around these Alpha Hotels such a terror that they deny them and want nothing to do with them.

Failing that, they will do as we have seen throughout history and even as recently as the ROE in AF and IQ.
