The term did not originate with President Trump, as commonly believed and repeated by the Mediacrats, but by orchestrated “corporate, political, news, and special interests,” according to investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, “who want to dominate the narrative and crush information that’s contrary.”
She says it was launched in September, 2016, and “quickly followed by an October announcement from President Barack Obama, in which he claims there’s a burning need to ‘curate’ news on behalf of the public. From that point forward, the topic of fake news dominates headlines on a daily basis. It’s as if the media has its assigned narrative and is marching forward…it isn’t the public that’s clamoring for content to be filtered, censored, or otherwise ‘curated.'”
Trump soon picked it up and made it his own in February, 2017, by denouncing the anti-Trump “fake news” of the NYTimes, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and ABC and dubbing them the “enemy of the American people.”
Since then the Mediacrats have dropped Trump’s specificity and claimed that he called all of the news media the enemy of the people. That, my friends, is real fake news.
