A List Of Some Of the Fake News Stories By the Media Against Donald Trump


The next time you get into an argument with a Trump hater about Fake News, and they say "give me one example", here's a dozen examples, and this is a very partial list:

False ABC NEWS report on former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn meeting with foreign leaders during the campaign

(ABC corrected the error when it was pointed out and Ross was suspended for four weeks and then reassigned by ABC. The report was also linked to a temporary drop of 350 points in the Dow Jones, but stocks recovered quickly)

CNN Report claiming Trump campaign had early access to hacked WikiLeaks documents.

(CNN forced to issue a correction)

NY Times falsely claimed that 17 US Intelligence Agencies concluded that Russia meddled in the election to help the Trump Campaign

(The NY Times later corrected the story and admitted it was just 4 individual analysts and that “the assessment was not approved by all 17 organizations in the American intelligence community”)

TIME Magazine posts a tweet claiming a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. had been removed from the Oval Office.

(Later a correction and apology issued by TIME)

WASHINGTON POST REPORTER Tweets a misleading photo suggesting a rally for Trump in Pensacola was not 'packed to the rafters.'

(The photo was taken while the audience was still entering the arena. The reporter was forced to apologize)

CNN published a video giving the impression Trump carelessly overfed fish in a koi pond during a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister

(The video was doctored. Full video showed that Trump was merely copying what Abe was doing; the report accompanying the video actually portrayed Trump's actions in a positive light.)

A Totally false report by CNN claiming then-White House Communications DirectorAnthony Scaramuccihad ties to Russia.

(Report later retracted. Three CNN staff members – Pulitzer-Prize nominee Thomas Frank; assistant managing editor Eric Lichtblau (who had recently joined from The New York Times and is a Pulitzer winner himself); and Lex Haris, the executive editor in charge of investigations – resigned)

NEWSWEEK Article falsely claimed Polish first lady Agata Kornhauser-Dudawould not shake Trump's hand.

(Forced to issue a correction hours after publication)

CNN Report that former FBI director James Comey would dispute Trump's claim that he was told he was not under investigation.

(CNN forced to issue a correction)

NY TIMES false report that scientists were afraid of the Trump administration planning not to publish a climate-change study.

(The study had actually been available to the public for seven months. In a correction, the New York Times lied, claiming that the report "was uploaded to a nonprofit internet digital library in January but received little attention until it was published by the New York Times", though the study had been previously reported on by the Washington Post.)

ALL MEDIA - Claims that the Trump campaign "colluded" with Russia.

(the greatest fake news hoax ever)

WASHINGTON POST FACT CHECKER claimed President Trump has made 12,019 false or misleading claims

(this ridiculous number comes from including jokes and even campaign slogans, for instance the rally slogan ‘this is the greatest economy ever’, and then counting each time he said it in a rally, so that one slogan was counted as 700 lies)

The NY TIMES claimed there was a new allegation of sexual misconduct by Bret Kavanaugh while a student at Yale University

(there was NO accuser and the Times was widely criticized by even the other Fake News outlets)

The BOSTON GLOBE falsely reported that Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test proved that she was native American and that Donald Trump was wrong.

(the Globe later issued a correction, admitting she was 1/1,024 Native American, that means 0. They blamed it on a math error)

One of the biggest fake news stories ever was that President Trump said about Charlottesville that there were good people on the white supremacists side. Never Happened. That is a doctored quote. Here is the full quote:

"you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.....I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally.

Here's the complete transcript of President Trump’s remarks on Charlottesville:
