OMG what’s going on here? Fake News?
I watch all the different major networks I think CNN seems pretty reliable and the just celebrated their 40th anniversary. They must be doing a good job to stay on reporting the news.

We are so fortunate to live here in The Villages where most people have lived long enough to see through most scams and can filter out what is good and bad. People choose to live here because of our reputation of being wise and traditional and patient and smart.

We have a majority of like thinking folks here and they see through the words and find the meaning and know what to believe and what to discard.

It has been erroneously called "Fake News" by someone we all know who is not as articulate as others.

What it is, is OPINION instead of factual reporting that irritates most thinking people these days. And what is chosen to present in the news and what is left out.

The wonderful thing is that having lived a long time, most older people can sift through the missing or hyped information, and enjoy living in this country which is in an economic good place that gives jobs to those who seek them and puts us all in a better place. Words are words, but a paycheck puts food on the table of the hungry.

Articulate talk is often a way to get some folks to drop their drawers as we all know. Who knew such lack of something like smooth phrases could serve us well?

Your use of the word ARTICULATE caught my attention.

I did a bit of research on what the word you used a number of times actually means.

Interesting that no definitions mention lying, simply an inability to speak fluently.

So, how do you explain away lying ?

Worth a conversation because fake news seems to be, to some, not related in any way to articulation, but actually what is a lie and what is not. When in the service or working, everyone avoided liars, but learned to understand those who articulated poorly. It was easy to tell the difference.

and while you are explaining away lying, how about trying to explain the use of the word HATRED in the first para of your rebuttal. Where is the HATRED in anything that any one of us posters has used?

The OP talked to RT and somehow this was hijacked to attack CNN, not surprising, but to the thread topic...

Does nobody object to RT intruding OPENLY into our systems that used to be protected and honored...

Each time this theme is brought up, as if no foreign country who openly opposed our democratic system, openly speaks to how they intend to divide us and even tells us how they will do it.

YET, somehow we attack our own, as intended of course, but no concern shown about any of that.

Until this thread, NEVER heard of RT Network. And I have never seen a glimpse of it on anything onTV I have watched. Never on Facebook.

RT (TV network - Wikipedia)

Where do you all see it???

I have watched RT because and old reporter from Miami was the reporter. I didn't agree with some of it but it was not as annoying as FOX.

Annoying is a general term. They have become (did not used to be) the seat of conspiracies.


What is amazing, the watchers do not seem to care that the conspiracies fostered on there are not true, have NEVER EVER be proven to be true, and have caused so much harm (see suits against their late night star, and the shooting at the pizza place supposedly a den of oedophiles) both of these reported as factual and totally made up but repeated by our government.

Again, this thread was about RT, not any other netwaork.

Not sure of the motive of those who ignore the OP, but assume they are all fans of RT and their message.

I believe you mentioned you are on Facebook.....well, they certainly were a major topic during our country's investigation.....sure were the subject of much questioning during Facebooks visit to the capital, and have been in most news reports about the manipulation of news on Facebook.

Now, the controversy continues....

RT attacks Facebook for suspending In The NOW, Soapbox, other pages - Business Insider

Not sure how a Facebook user can not be aware.

Facebook ad platform made it easy for Russians to manipulate users

https://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...8fe_story.html

https://www.intelligence.senate.gov/...rt_Volume2.pdf

Note the date on much of this.....most were reported well before the current harrangue

Most people use Facebook without any kind of interaction with the people or the policies of who run it. They simply use Facebook as a way to see what their friends and family members are doing and to laugh at their cleverness and some like to argue politics on it as well. The kid who owns Facebook and the decisions he makes doesn't enter into our Facebook experience. During the period you mention, all of us could and many did just erased strange political news posts and reported them. We are a lot smarter than you think.

Just on this forum, we have no interaction with the webmaster or the website maker or sense his/her presence or views.

Most people I know TRY to read the news without opinion and fewer watch the opinion talkers on any of the major networks.

I am not sure that the Nielsen ratings are something you understand but here is how the public views the three major networks according to Nielsen.

neilsen ratings on news networks - Bing

Google the same phrase...……..

I certainly appreciate your bow to my lack of understanding but I understand and comprehend much more than you know, but nice of you to be concerned about my understanding.

Yet the thread is about RT....are you happy with the acknowledged thrust of twisting facts on Facebook among others ?

Did you read or at least the congressional hearings on the subject ?

I realize Do not understand, as you alluded to, but I do read quite a bit......cannot believe there is an American who never heard of RT.

You said you "never heard" of RT before today.....THAT alone says a lot ("Until this thread, NEVER heard of RT Network)

Never heard of RT.

You ever heard of Baby Yoda?

There is a big world full of fun and good things in this wonderful economy that feeds people who used to be hungry.
