It's true, the US economy is clearly accelerating.

http://themiddleground.sg/2017/03/19/q1-economy-signals-brightening-outlook/

That article cited NO data to support the contention that the economy is accelerating!

Employment and stock market for sure.

Stock market now has highest P/E ratios - Stock market is not an indicator of the economy, but rather Fed policy.
Growth over the past five years has been tepid but the stock market roared

She raised rates because the economy was accelerating.

Not sure that is the case-
Helen Hayes from CNBC asked her why she was raising rates into a tired expansion- she had no good answer

It's not so much fake as in false, but selective and partisan.

Some of it is partisan and some of it IS FALSE.

Stories like this are FALSE http://fakenews.news/2017/02/03/ap-reports-fake-news-trumps-intention-invade-mexico/

I keep hearing that Donald Trump called the media the enemy of the people. This is also FALSE when he said FAKE NEWS MEDIA was the enemy of the people, not the media.

Who would even think about gold?

The CIA's seemingly pedestrian discussion of the gold market was labeled SECRET for decades

The rosy scenario of economic wonders from a Trump administration that predominated after his election. Now as his inauguration approaches the uncertainty is weighing on the markets.

Actually it's pretty clever on his part as well since if things don't go according to plan, Trumpligula can claim he wasn't correctly quoted etc. over and over and over louder and louder until it's believable and further discredit WaPo more than they have done to themselves.

The WAPO, NY TIMES CNN FB opened this can of worms- if they had just stuck to reporting the news they could have held readership and the journalistic higher ground. the contrast would have been clear.
Instead they went on an offensive, and it blew up on them because they publish a fair amount of fake news themselves

This is what's true. By taking sides and determining that the fate of a so called democracy is within their preview, not only did these main stream organizations un...

The issue is that govt grants the broadcast licenses so the media outlets are less likely to criticize

First mistake with WaPo is selling to bezos, who has ax to grind with trump.

They had to sell to someone with deep pockets who would support continued losses other wise they would have gone out of business with their current propaganda approach

Seems the WAPO would just like to forget all about fake news!
BayAreaObserver says

As for the reason I look at various sources such as Infowars, Breitbart and the like I do a quick headline scan every day to get prepared for what's coming on the forum or to catch up on what I probably missed if I'm pressed for time and not able to get here to see it with my own eyes.

I have a short list of left and right wing sites to scan every day but lately it's the right wing sites that keep showing up in the posts/comments.

That's all...

Have a nice afternoon - I gotta take the pup to the groomer..later

Seems like the WAPO would like to forget all about fake news

The NYTimes mentioned last year it was their duty to stop trump and The CNN reporter acted like a protestor not a reporter at trump's press conference
