    taken from another website:

    The citizens of the former Soviet Union had a saying: “There is no Pravda in Izvestiya and there is no Izvestiya in Pravda”

    Pravda (meaning Truth) was the name of the official news organization of the Communist Party and Izvestiya (meaning News) was the name of the official news organization of the Soviet government. So “There is no Truth in News and there is no News in Truth.”

    What was true for the Soviet Union is true in America today.


    The orwellian propaganda of the msm is designed to direct your thinking toward a particular conclusion in order to mold your opinions. It's not to simply give you an unbiased look at what is going on in the world.

    Anyone with their opinion especially a "sporting goods store" will not get my business

    What the hell is the public (National TV) news for Rich? This is the only thing the public has to go on. If you can't believe what they say, when will a person ever be able to believe anything, You only believe want you want to and how can you tell who is telling the truth? Maybe you are wrong, can you show me proof every time when you say something? If you say yes then your the one that's not telling the truth! I should have said that the news is reporting that his ratings are going down. People have got to make up their own minds about what is true and what is not. I only was stating what the news was saying and everyone has got to make up their own minds as to what is and isn't true. I guess I should just ask you because it seems your always right.

    Patriots need to get into the ownership end of the news business like the socialists have.

    Spinoza said "He who would distinguish the true from the false must have an adequate idea of what is true and false."

    So the short answer is that a person must be absolutely grounded in factual history; they must have an unshakable moral compass, and a knowledge of how the rest of the world works.

    That way when they try to sling the propaganda BS, you'll pick up on things that just don't sound right, and look into it more deeply.

    Agreed: Just making the point that not all of the news is fake, some can be assumed fake, but unless you see something or have seen something contrary to what is being broadcast what is being broadcast could possibly be true. Also there are many people with busy schedules that don't have as much time to watch the different news channels and take what they do get to see as fact. I still have to say that between the different news stations I believe FOX above the rest. I have been watching them for years and they also have shown in many cases that what the other major networks say are lies that Trump has told are in fact true, and Fox's claims to that nature have been confirmed in the news papers and that is good enough for me and that settles it period. Others can believe what they want.

    Just to make clear my statement that Fox has shown in many cases that what the other major networks say are lies that Trump has told are in fact true, meaning that what he said was the truth and not lies. I saw where that could have been seen the wrong way.

    The old saying...If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't. I think it translates over to this. If it sounds like it could not be true, it probably isn't. Trust your life experience and good judgement.

    I try to watch the other news channels and just can't. I watch Fox and listen to talk radio.

    I can't watch the others myself, knowing how they have been proven to lie. And that morning Joe guy I can't stand to even look at him. Good luck hunting and shooting in 2018.

    You seem to not be able to think for yourself and depend on others to tell you what to think. Like I posted: Don't believe any Democrat or any Elite Republican. Don't believe anything the "main stream media" tells you and you will be better off.
