Reading Fake News, Pakistani Minister Directs Nuclear Threat at Israel
By RUSSELL GOLDMAN

A fake news article led to gunfire at a Washington pizzeria three weeks ago. Now it seems that another fake news story has prompted the defense minister of Pakistan to threaten to go nuclear.

The defense minister, Khawaja Muhammad Asif, wrote a saber-rattling Twitter post directed at Israel on Friday after a false report — which the minister apparently believed — that Israel had threatened Pakistan with nuclear weapons. Both countries have nuclear arsenals.

“Israeli def min threatens nuclear retaliation presuming pak role in Syria against Daesh,” the minister wrote on his official Twitter account, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State. “Israel forgets Pakistan is a Nuclear state too.”

Republican aide terminated after masterminding anti-Clinton fake news site
James Tennent, International Business Times

An aide to a state delegate in Maryland was fired on Wednesday (18 January) after being outed as the mastermind behind an anti-Clinton fake news site that spread fabricated articles accusing the Democrat nominee of vote rigging. Cameron Harris, an aide to David E Vogt III, was fired after the Republican delegate for Carroll & Frederick Counties' 4th district discovered Harris's role in creating the fake news stories. Vogt told the Washington Post that he was "shocked", adding: "he seemed like a bright young man that was interested in getting involved in politics." Harris was interviewed for a feature in the New York Times in which he admitted to creating the fake news site ChristianTimesNewspaper.com ...

Russia’s Facebook Fake News Could Have Reached 70M Americans
BY Ben Collins, Kevin Poulsen, and Spencer Ackerman
Facebook acknowledged that Russian propagandists spent $100,000 on election ads. It neglected to mention how many millions of people those ads reached.

Donald Trump Counters 'Fake News' With 'Fake Friends'
President Trump and Mitch McConnell held a press conference to make it seem as if the two leaders get along, but a new report from Politico shows Trump and the White House are blaming all of their legislative issues on the Senate and its Majority Leader: McConnell.

Trump Suggested Access Hollywood Tape Was Fake
Trump has reportedly made the suggestion in light of the allegations against Roy Moore.

President Donald Trump has reportedly suggested at least twice in private that the so-called Access Hollywood tape—which shows him bragging about groping women—is fake. “He suggested to a senator earlier this year that it was not authentic, and repeated that claim to an adviser more recently,” The New York Times reported, in a story about Trump’s risky political move to back Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate who is mired in sexual misconduct allegations. Trump, of course, issued an on-camera apology shortly after the comments were published last October, and admitted to making the remarks.

One does wonder... Why did it take him so long to come out with this "the tape is a fake" defense? wonder

The Year Shepard Smith Went Rogue at Fox News
While his network daily parrots every absurd Trump talking point, Shep Smith has turned into Fox News’ vestige of fact-based news reporting—much to the chagrin of Fox viewers.
BY Andrew Kirell

In the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency, we witnessed Fox News’ right-wing morning gabfest turn into the most politically influential program in America, its prime-time lineup transform into three hours of non-stop Trump sycophancy, and its own contributors and supposed “hard news” reporters dabble in conspiracy theories that would make Alex Jones proud.

And yet, among all that predictable muck—after all, Fox News practically created Trumpism—Fox’s most famous news reporter has stood out as the voice of reliable reporting, fact-checking, and reason.

While the rest of his network bends over backward to appease a Republican president who religiously views their programming—and an audience that views “mainstream media” as a personal affront—Shepard Smith and his midday news show, appropriately titled Shepard Smith Reporting, has, in some sense, gone rogue.

It’s no surprise, given Shep’s long history of unfiltered, un-Fox-like on-air banter—“We are America! We do not fucking torture!” he famously shouted during a 2009 digital show—but in an era where the president and his most devoted followers constantly screech about “fake news” while praising Fox News’ loyalty to Trump, Smith stuck out like a sore thumb in 2017.

Days before Trump took office, Smith came to the defense of CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who engaged in a shouting match with Trump during an early press conference. The then-president-elect refused to answer the reporter’s questions about the Russia dossier, repeatedly calling CNN “fake news.”

“Though we at Fox News cannot confirm CNN’s report,” Smith snarked from his studio, “it is our observation that its correspondents followed journalistic standards and that neither they nor any other journalists should be subjected to belittling and delegitimizing by the president-elect of the United States.”

Several weeks later, in February, Smith couldn’t contain his frustration with a Trump press conference, in which the president dodged multiple questions about Russian government’s election interference and alleged ties to his campaign.
