Fake News

News services like CNN and BBC are complaining about social media today, Facebook helped to elect Trump they say. So much opinion reported in news, facts dispersed for good measure. Hillary apparently had 3 million more votes fake news tells me but Trump won because of the college voting system! We should always remember that... Continue Reading →


So much for fake news, Trump is taking alternative facts the next level. There is news today of an unconfirmed meeting with the president of Canada (unconfirmed because they don't know if the meeting happened, he said it did) where Trump makes the false claim of a trade deficit with Canada. I suspect the real... Continue Reading →


As reported on CNN, Amnesty International is presently saying a big threat to human rights is the United States of America. I never thought I'd see the day that the US made their list of concerns. America's answer to the US gun problem is more guns, give guns to teachers and good people? They should... Continue Reading →


You must be a famous person to be president of the United States these days. CNN now reports Oprah Winfrey might be next, she would come after reality TV star Donald Trump, before him movie star Ronald Reagan. Probably the right thing for a country so focussed on the individual and during the time of... Continue Reading →

It has happened in every position of power, all vocations including acting, politics, education, hospitality etc. Even in normal life such concepts take over, I sometimes said to myself  in the...

There are several news stories about fake news of late, just saw one on CNN, oops it was BBC, this is fake. They talk of technology companies like Google, Facebook, Wikipedia among others providing fake news. All these sites merely provide opinions not fact, people choose to say something on them. Perhaps they should use... Continue Reading →


Alternative facts are not a genre of facts like alternative music. A victim of the US election has been fact, the truth. Indeed media has reported facts that have been challenged by Trump. A hallmark of western democracy is independent media. In some countries media is controlled, Russia and China come to mind. CNN now says people should Google it to check... Continue Reading →


The US government itself sounds more like Nazi Germany than the media Donald. Indeed you are transforming US politics into a dictatorship. You are acting like a dictator by trying to control the media as you say the Nazi’s did, and Russia, China today. So much for the 1st amendment and freedom of speech. Let’s... Continue Reading →
