Except that it didn't work.

Please. Most provide very good links to why they rate things the way they do. I don't always agree with their opinions 100%, but pretty close to it, and they've never misled me on WHY they rated something the way they did.

It wasn't fake news that lost Her the election it was fake Hillary.A power hungry money hungry liar who would say anything you wanted to hear true or not. She forgot about the other half of Americans except when she called them unredeemable deplorable idiots she would put out of work.She thought there were enough angry American voters to put her over the top.Fact is she created more angry American voters with her mouth than she had voting for her.

No fake stories. I know that the director of the Clinton Foundation resigned and disappeared for several weeks and then got a job at a Google Billionaire's foundation. The Podestas had to leave that foundation before he signed on. Hmmm, something spooked that friend of Chelsea's or disgusted him. At least he didn't end up like Seth Rich.
Speaking of that, the DNC scandal and Pizzagate weren't fake, either. They DID hurt Hillary big time.
Her health is bad, too. That hurt her big time.

Google is your friend.

This isn't really about Trump and Billary. it is about how technology will influence everything we think and do.




The question is not that there are fake stories. There are fake stories about every candiate. The question is that they swung the election like liberals claim



From what I remember the mainstream media was far more anti Trump than Clinton

Well, what wasn't fake news was the on board meeting of Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch at the airport in Phoenix.

That more than anything contributed to Hillary not wining the election.
Everyone knew she was under investigation by the FBI, and that meeting was nothing more than a bribe to stifle any further investigation.
That did not bode well for Ms.Clinton.
It smelled of payoff.
I can't believe Bill was that stupid.
Perhaps he knew it would mean defeat for her, and he didn't want her being President in the first place.

Bob.

Funny you should mention that. Liberals have been constantly singing their own praise on being highly educated. It can't help them when they use it to talk down to people. They are rejected by the people they need most, as arrogant and entitled.

The uneducated is exactly the kind of people they have to win over to win elections in the future. The winning message they have to have must appeal to the most uninformed.

Before rejecting this idea to quickly let me say : Its not my idea. It comes from a liberal. Gautam Mukunda who is a political scientist and business school professor written about in the Harvard Review. Also author of the book "Indispensable". Another thought provoking question is : Are "leaders" made by history, or do they make it ? How does Trump fit in when that question is ask ? What do the voters say about it ?

Conservative don't have to do much but let liberals talk. They shoot themselves in the foot. Unable to learn from it, they keep shooting trying to blow off all five toes. Then ask, why do I have but one leg to stand on ? Conservatives look on and ask ; Are you hoppy now or do you need more ammo ?

Even the most uninformed will remember what CNN has done with the Russian story nonsense.

I doubt most liberals think fake news lost Hillary the presidency, it did hurt her however most liberals are upset Russia interfered with our election period. Everyone should be concerned about that
