Broadcasting and Print companies that call themselves “news” is a pet peeve on mine.  It is a pet peeve because I do not believe we will be able to heal the huge amount of partisanship in our society if we continue to have companies that call themselves “news” report demonstratively false or “fake” “news”.

This is not a left or right issue, this is not a Democrat or Republican issue, this is not a far left or far right issue; this is a fairness issue.  We hear every day over and over again about fairness in our society by the left.  If they are so concerned about fairness, and we all should be, why do they not appear to be too concerned with fairness when it comes to reporting by their “news” outlets?

The Daily Caller is reporting about one of these fake news stories.  CNN posted a tweet that stated:

Lynne Patton, a longtime Trump family associate who appeared at the House hearing with Michael Cohen, says she has the President's blessing to follow in his footsteps as a reality TV star, even as she serves as a high-ranking federal housing official (link: https://cnn.it/2Twg40p) cnn.it/2Twg40p

Lynne Patton is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development official and she is now accusing CNN of lying about what she said and she has audio proof to prove it.

Someone asked her if it was true that the President gave you his blessing to pursue a reality TV show, she said “no where did you hear that…I do not know who your source is”?

If CNN will report something that is so demonstratively opposite of what they reported and there is proof to show that what are they reporting that cannot be so easily disputed or corrected.

All of us should be against these companies who claim to be reporting news but in reality they are just reporting things to shape the opinions of everyone to meet their unstated agenda.

Once we can get all “news” outlets to fairly report on the political and societal issues of the day we will be on a path to solving our society’s partisan views.
