Fake news is a painful toothache that can only be cured by extracting the rotten tooth that causes all the pain.

If you’ve ever had a toothache, my friends, you know how painful they can be. If you’ve ever seen fake news—and I’m sure you have—you know how utterly tortuous it can be.

I say ignore it. Change the channel. Delete from the people you may follow on Twitter, fake news pundits.

I do think it is worthwhile to SHOW you, to DEMONSTRATE fake news in all its malevolent glory. So let’s get started.

From Politico:

“Democrats begin attacking Biden’s performance.”

No, they are not. They are standing behind him, as you may have heard:

Obama, Pelosi, Jeffries, Senator Warnock, and many others have said they stand with Biden.

Let’s look at some of what this fake article says.

“Rep. Jim Clyburn, a vital ally of the President, told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that he would back Vice President Kamala Harris if Biden stepped aside.”

WRONG!

All wrong!

Clyburn said—and I saw it in real time—that he’s standing with BIDEN. He said he’d happily have Harris’s back, but that time would likely be in the FUTURE.

See how they can twist the facts?

See it for yourselves.

“Nancy Pelosi said it’s completely legitimate to question Biden;s debate performance.”

NANCY PELOSI has said OVER AND OVER that she stands with President Biden.

The media has heard the answer once, twice, thrice, and hundreds of times. They just asking the same questions over and over, undoubtedly hoping for so much more dirty Laundry to gin up their failing ratings.

I am not even bothering to link to this absurd article. But understand that fake news is merely that—and that this too shall pass.

As soon as the media, like the carnivores they are, find a new meal to tear into, they will let this go and focus on the shiny new meal.

We saw this as the media proudly and wickedly used Senator John Fetterman’s debate performance, after he had a stroke, against him, turning him into a sort of human punching bag as they breathlessly speculated on when he’d drop out of the race.

He didn’t. He laughed at the media all the way to the Senate as he beat Dr. Oz in a landslide.

By the way, Senator Fetterman, too, is standing with Biden..

Sadly, the media has fallen (far, far,so far, much further than Icarus ever could.)

It IS sad, but it only shows us that WE need to turn them off, tune them out, and get our message out.
