richlind33: "Fake news" strikes again. o.O

kohlrak: I'd like more info. What we do know is that the rebels were indeed using Sarin, but the question is whether or not Assad used Sarin, or if one of the targets was a Sarin gas producing lab.
You know, fake news has been around for a long, long time. The only thing that's new is that the establishment has competition now, thanks to the interwebz, so they have to work harder to manage the flow of information. Which is a turrible, turrible shame, innit?

So fakenews rights hit-pieces on their rivals, and blackmails their platform to silence their rivals and also give them preferential treatment.

It used to be a lot more subtle. To give an example, the New York Times would do hit-pieces on dictators that had fallen out of Washington's good graces. 3-4 paragraphs and a photo juxtaposed with a story about a pedophile ring, or some such thing.

If you're thinking that isn't very subtle, you're right, but it is compared to how it's done today. Today everything is blatantly partisan and doesn't even bother to maintain the pretense of objectivity.
