CNN.. the Communist News Network

 

Kim Jong Un's sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics

https://www.google.ca/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/02/10/asia/kim-sister-olympics/index.html

(CNN)If "diplomatic dance" were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un's younger sister would be favored to win gold.

With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea's presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.

Wow.  It's 'good' to see that:

- the original post was so thoroughly checked and verified

- handwaving and ad hominems, rather than actually addressing each 'fact', are the preferred debating tactics

{sarcasm} .. where's the 'sighs wearily' icon....

I'm sure everyone's position has been reinforced by their views about what's fake and what isn't.  Now that it's all sorted.... let's move on!

From the commy Washington gone postal:

The ‘Ivanka Trump of North Korea’ captivates people in the South at the Olympics

By Anna Fifield

February 10, 2018 at 6:57 PM

GANGNEUNG, South Korea — They marveled at her barely-there makeup and her lack of bling. They commented on her plain black outfits and simple purse. They noted the flower-shaped clip that kept her hair back in a no-nonsense style. 

Here she was, a political princess, but the North Korean “first sister” had none of the hallmarks of power and wealth that Koreans south of the divide have come to expect. In looks-obsessed South Korea, many 20-something women list plastic surgery and brand-name bags as life goals.

There's many more so-called western news media who have ran similar articles as CNN and the Washington Post drooling over a dictators sister, comparing her to Ivanka, it's appalling.  

This monsterous regime is nothing like America.

The Korea's are polar opposites when compared... And they are the same people.

Capitalism vs Communism.

And she is somehow according to our western media, a princess???

Give me a freaking break.

Eh, NHK news and the like are posting similar stories.  So she made an impression.  No reason to be upset about it.

Maybe it will keep her from being assassinated when she falls out of little Kim's favor.

So you want the news to be government controlled propaganda instead of reporting what they see?  Isn't that the very definition of fake news? 

Anyone with half a brain knows where she comes from and what she stands for.  If she goes to the Olympics and behaves in a tasteful and classy fashion, it should be reported as such.  If it was reported otherwise, people would question other media coverage of North Korea. (Like how truly horrible they are.)

What are you afraid of anyways?  That positive or negative media coverage would influence opinion or an election?

I played a lot of them but now I am having my hands full with Diggy's Adventure and Hero Wars.

Okay this is going to take a lot of time but one of the first things in your link, iirc, was the Politifact said that Greg Gutfeld's statement that Ted Kennedy met with the KGB to try and steal the election away from Reagan was false. I did a quick google search and came up with this as a possible (?) rebuttal:

http://dailysignal.com/2016/12/14/ted-kennedy-made-secret-overtures-to-russia-to-prevent-ronald-reagans-re-election/

"Sen. Edward “Ted” Kennedy had “selfish political and ideological motives” when he made secret overtures to the Soviet Union’s spy agency during the Cold War to thwart then-President Ronald Reagan’s re-election, a Reagan biographer said in an interview with The Daily Signal."

I'm going to try and research some of the others but this is going to take time....

It looks like Politifacts is right on the 2nd, that Seth Rich's murder had nothing to do with Wikileaks of the DNC emails....bad on Fox, I admit...going to check some of the others now....okay another one claimed false: Podesta's password was "password" (not even acceptable on some sites). Some sources say it was p@ssw0rd...  meh....imo many of his (Watters')  comments are not meant to be taken seriously anyway...

Nothing to show for the ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvesment Act). I'm tempted to give this one to Fox because, athough it did extend unemployment benefits, among other things (which is a debatable boon considering many times extending unemployment just extends the time recipients decide to seriously look for work), there is this:

https://nypost.com/2012/01/29/how-the-800b-stimulus-failed/

"In reporting on the stimulus over three years, I traveled to 15 states, interviewed hundreds of people and read through tens of thousands of government documents and project reports.

What I found is that the stimulus failed to live up to its promise not because it was too small (as those on the left argue) or because Keynesian economics is obsolete (as those on the right argue), but because it was poorly designed. Even advocates for a bigger stimulus need to acknowledge that their argument is really one about design and presentation."

Okay taking a break for now will get back on this....

"Mao and Stalin looked dapper in the stands." This shows why the Democratic propaganda news outlets are more concerned with the Russians than with the Chinese. This shows why they are more troubled by 2018 Russia than by the 1980 USSR. It's disgusting, but it's not surprising.
