Fake News Alert

You simply can not make this up.





It almost reminds one of this blast from the past.

Funny stuff!

Reminds me of a couple of weeks ago when the forecast included wind speeds as high as 27 MPH and the Kroger in Madison was full of sheep getting “prepared.” Probably some of the same sheep that were heading to their favorite football campus the Saturday after Katrina in 2005 when gas stations everywhere were running out of fuel.

As for Fake News, it’s always been fake. The Clarion Liar was lying 30 years ago just like it does today. But, the internet and sites like these have made it probable that we will catch them and given us the ability to call them out.

Journalism 101…you don’t report the news, you “make it!”

How so, 11:11?

Or how about this bit of drama from NBC?

Very funny. It’s sad how tv media likes to think people buy into all their hype. I guess gullible people are everywhere. It’s also a shame you can’t find real news on the TV. Trump is 100% right on target about fake news. I call TV news (local & national) the nursing home news. If you want real news you have to search it out online by using your brain. You can find it on social media if you put your mind to it and THINK.

Old news. The weather channel would piss on a tree and call it acid rain if it brought in more ratings. They were bought out.

Get Wunderground

@7:13
You realize that wunderground was bought out by The Weather Channel right?

They do this with all news. It's in their DNA to lie. Wake up sheeple!

News is sold as a commodity. That means it's part of the "free enterprise system" and it's life therefore is dictated by the marketplace. They must give people what they want. Not necessarily the truth. Nothing more disgusting than a dyed in the wool capitalist complaining about "fake news".

the medias favorite thing to report on is themselves

Hurricanes support an industry, including weather reporting, clean-up contractors, FEMA, etc. It's big business.

MSM media is systemically rotten to the core. The Internet exposed it all for everyone to see. Now they want to censor and control the information available on the Internet.

So you miss the days of America having only three TV network gatekeepers?

8:18 is truly a socialist. What makes you think all Capitalists want to watch fake news? Some of us don’t invest in media, unlike you if you have a 401k that does. This is just the beginning of what communism is about. Feed the people all the fake news. Tell them everything is a myth and shove the major networks down our throat with their version of what they think is right for you. HRC would love to tell everyone that she is not a liar and you all would believe it.

I wish Walter Cronkite was still able to report. They don’t make them like that anymore. Our generation screwed the media up very bad just for money and ratings. Reporters should tell the truth even if it hurts. If they are good at it then they will succeed and climb the ladder. If they are bad then they won’t. Simple. Maybe I see it wrong but I don’t think I do.

Local news is poorly disguised advertising. National news is 5 minutes of content wrapped around 20 minutes of pharmaceutical sales.

Go back to bed, 4:00 a.m. Football games in Mississippi were cancelled when Katrina hit. Although many of us did sit in gas station lines for over an hour.

Walter Cronkite had us all fooled. He was the original liar but we never knew it. He was totally complicit with the fake news from the administration via Westmoreland. Every night we listened to Cronkite lying about Nam numbers.

Is that Brick from the movie Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy? @8:18 I have no problem with them producing a product for sale. The problem is that product is presented as truth, and their fake outrage if they are called on it. The main sources of "news" has been propaganda for over 100 years. Yes @11:21, even Walter Cronkite. It is usually the gullible, the young, naive, or the supposed progressives that take this propaganda at face value. The progressives claiming to be open minded. My experiences with these progressives, it appears they are so open minded their brains have fallen out.

Think about all the corruption reported on here at JJ that none of the other media in the metro+state doesn't cover and hasn't EVER covered.

What is the best source of online news? (excepting KF, of course)

10:59 AM, I suppose I was dreaming on that Saturday after Katrina on September 3, 2005 during the fuel shortage while seeing SUVs full of sheep heading to Starkville?

But then why do we get this via Wikipedia?

September 3 (2005) MSU beat Murray State (Jr. College?) 38-6 in Davis Wade Stadium, Starkville, MS with 41,143 in attendance. “Allegedly” the game started at 6:00 PM.

Looks like somebody is guilty of more FAKE NEWS.

Cronkite was a Martha's Vineyard east coast elite liberal, but he kept his left leanings to himself on the air.

I don't recall him censoring the battlefield news from Vietnam, but I do remember the graphic battlefield videos on the evening news which fueled the violent protests and terrorist acts back home.

Sho Nuff said...

Let me say first, that I in no way supported the Vietnam police action. This comment concerns propaganda passed off as news. Cronkite is the one which really began to present something other than facts, and events. It was damaging enough, the previous 50 years or so, with the news media, mostly print versions, later radio, of course television, selectively reporting and slanting the facts and events. Cronkite opened the doorway to where we are now. I remember as I watched Cronkite say, not in so many words, that we, the U.S., was not capable of winning this engagement. History has shown this to not be true. This man had not the knowledge, or expertise to make this judgement. Yet, he took his prominent position, used the trust of the American people to sway the decisions of the leaders of that time. It was a troublesome time. Evening, after evening giving death tolls for the day. Showing the body bags of our fine young men being brought home, with the right vocal tone inflection giving the viewer a feeling of discouragement, and defeat. The unrest in the streets, and college campuses. Yes, I remember, but I digress. The propaganda machine has been a well oiled mechanism. It had been being built for several decades, Mr. Cronkite, bless his anti American heart, put it in operation.

10:22 You do not have to be a socialist to understand that the marketplace, i.e. supply and demand dictate production, be it cars, corn, soft drinks or news. The truth is one thing (go to church and pray for it) the news is another. If you want the news to be nothing but the truth you will have to establish a non-profit organization probably state controlled (impossible?) which most people will probably find boring anyway. And it will obviously be considered socialist. The news business has never, never, presented the real truth. People would not buy it.

The social media comic parodys are best..about 7 out there..the one made by the firemen...using a hose, leaf blower, chairs and bicycle pulled across by rope, debris thrown at the reporter is best...its on Kelly Lacour ladt tweet about fake hurricane coverage...Wolf Blitzer also got caught with a fake wind gate coverage on Florence

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
