Why do so many people think that FAKE NEWS is something new?
Is it because you’re just now reading about it?
It’s probably because we’ve put such blind trust in what our media overlords have been spoon-feeding us for decades.
You’ve probably heard this before: “Well, I saw someone on TV say that…blah, blah, blah.”
And because they saw it on TV or read it in the TIMES it must be true, right?
Fake news has been around even before Gutenberg invented the printing press.
Ironically, the father of our modern-day “fake news” has the most prestigious journalism award named after him. It’s caused the Pulitzer Prize.
Yep! That’s right.
Joseph Pulitzer along with William Randolph Hearst, CREATED the Spanish American War.
They did it by using “Yellow Journalism” to fan the flames of war over the mysterious sinking of the US Maine in a Spanish harbor in Cuba.
What a joke! In fact, it’s laughable.
Think about this. Today, it’s considered an honor to win the award given by the man who championed Fake News.
So, what does that say about the integrity of today’s media?
You can choose for yourself but I rarely believe ANYTHING I see in the Lame Stream Media. Especially when it comes to financial news.
That’s the reason why we publish Simplifying Wall Street in Plain English.
We break down investing and financial news into simple and easy to understand terms.
And we back it up with real life experiences.
