I think that I agree that "Moderate Rebels" and "Vice Magazine" are a source of propaganda along with the MSM.
But that is called freedom of the press, so what can we do but put bumper stickers on our cars that say:
FIGHT THE FAKE NEWS
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

Those motherfuckers sold out hard. They didn't just sell the brand, they stuck around to suck corporate dick. :lol:

Russia Hysteria Infects WashPost Again: False Story About Hacking U.S. Electric Grid
Apparently, the Post did not even bother to contact the company before running its wildly sensationalistic claims, so Burlington Electric had to issue its own statement to the Burlington Free Press, which debunked the Post’s central claim

WashPost Is Richly Rewarded for False News About Russia Threat While Public Is Deceived
Whether the Post’s false stories here can be distinguished from what is commonly called “Fake News” is, at this point, a semantic dispute, particularly since “Fake News” has no cogent definition. Defenders of Fake News as a distinct category typically emphasize intent in order to differentiate it from bad journalism. That’s really just a way of defining Fake News so as to make it definitionally impossible for mainstream media outlets like the Post ever to be guilty of it (much the way terrorism is defined to ensure that the U.S. government and its allies cannot, by definition, ever commit it).
