Subtitle: Inflammatory Copy
At the beginning of July 2017 I commented that I was to start a Trump News Blackout. It has been in force for about 2 weeks now.
- Not reading any article that is pro or anti Trump
- If Trump appears on any TV or Youtube broadcast, immediately switch to something else.
Coverage on Donald Trump has now reached the stage were both sides present maliciously titled copy.
But I'm not talking about the Established Press. I'm talking about the Web based press. Of the 12 Based Political News feeds I read daily one has become a virtual cesspit of inaccuracy and inflammatory titled and contented writing.
I made some other checks. Of the 54 fees on Religion that I read daily (!!) at least 2 have inflammatory copy. Nearly all articles they publish are offensively titled (and arguable contented)
In the UK the Obscene Publications Act and a variety of associated defences (see linked article) deal with printed and UK web hosted material that is liable to
deprave and corrupt
Unfortunately this is aimed at Pornography and not the torrent of Fake News stories, again set forth by the NON traditional press (in other words CNN, BBC they are the good guys), that IMHO also should fall under this category
Repeat: Not Mainstream Media
Fake News: This is not news that you don't agree with
Fake News: the 99.999% of it is coming from Internet Based News sources. Relatively, the Established Media is not only clean, but squeaky clean and more over, accountable.
Fake News: Is pandering to and supporting the closed not open minded people who need to read again and again why their [mostly] hate filled ideas are justified.
Of the 1000 titles in feeds that were reading candidates for today here are some examples. A few disgust me, whilst many are legitimate. Can you categorise them correctly? The titles are quite proportionate the level of vitriol and bullshit contained within them (google exact title to content check)
