a big pet peeve I have these days is when people adopt this as a joke phrase or try to turn it around on Republicans.

especially when it's not even used the same way. dem's might use it sarcastically (or intentionally) for news that is in fact not true, while a lot of times republicans use it to dismiss news they dislike.

if the latter uses it that way, they prob think the former is using it that way too, and not actually pointing out it is in fact not accurate.
well that was intense

nail it to the church is such a cool phrase/use

The thing that annoys me the most about "fake news" is it was originally meant in regards to the blatant lies Trump kept telling before the election, then he took it and forced it to mean the opposite.

edit: I see that's been covered.

Trump just retweeted the article about our galaxy being twice the size it was 2 years ago and equal to the size of Andromeda. And added "You're welcome."

the issue is Republicans learned a long time ago they can shape policy and win elections by blatantly lying and creating dumb soundbites. it dosent matter if something is true or not. if you say it in front of a camera and broadcast to a low information base that actively rejects science, reason, and critical thinking they will vote for you.

the other issue is democrats are completely spineless and will spend all day trying to pick apart the logical fallacies of a raving lunatic who is appealing to a base entirely on primal impulses.

they’re also good at messaging that assures people that they’ll be able to keep their money/way of life and if they aren’t rich and are white they’re good at blaming others for all their failures at achieving it

The coinage of "fake news" is an own goal of epic proportions by Dems. Great idea to adopt a phrase that can so easily be turned around by Republicans to perfectly express their decades-long campaign against the credibility of mainstream media.

and they created the entire notion of "mainstream media" to attack its credibility and lend credence to the notion that outside, fringe, or conspiratorial voices are the actual vessels of truth

When I say originally, I mean with reference to the 2016 election. Obviously the term had been around longer than that

I don't think "the democrats" had anything to do with the coinage of fake news. it was a term used in the media in a few stories shortly after the election to classify the actual fraudulent news that circulated on facebook, twitter, and phony websites. the term was immediately turned around by the alt-right and infowars





then it made its way to Hannity



and then DJT started using it shortly thereafter

That was poorly worded. I should've said lies Trump was spreading from Breitbart, etc.
