Political Collapse: The Center Cannot Hold

Fake News

Facebook May Face Another Fake News Crisis in 2020

Interfering in our Elections

Israel-Based Group is Behind Bigoted Facebook Smear Campaign Aimed at Rep. Ilhan Omar

Donald Trump to IAC: Some American Jews 'don't love Israel enough': The president spoke at the Israeli-American Council annual event. This was Trump's first time speaking for a non-political Jewish organization.
How can they claim to be a "non-political organization" when the name is Israeli-American Council and they have Trump speaking like this. 
Also, I agree with Atrios  "..if a prominent Democrat said something like this "we'd" be talking about the Democrats' anti-Semitism problem for the next 25 years."


Now if Trump had said the Occupation should end,. well then he'd be in some trouble.

How the Schiff Report Deals with Disinformation
Writing in BuzzFeed News, reporter Ryan Broderick argued that that House Intelligence Committee hearings were really two hearings at once—one Democratic hearing focused on establishing the facts of the Ukraine scandal, and one Republican hearing “seek[ing] to create not just a counternarrative but a completely separate reality,” designed to produce “bite-size Facebook posts” and clips for Fox News.
This is a pretty good post about how the R misinformation machine works.
