I think you are confused. The news was not fake, but they are using stock image. Do you understand?

Lala can't trust someone who denies the truth. Children are being sold like fast food.


I have all the paperwork that proves I'm the owner and stuff. It's all legit.

CNN misrepresented the data, so Lala thinks that makes it as fake as fake news gets. All it achieved was hurting the image of Japanese people. Mainstream media, a.k.a. legacy media is a fake news machine.

it's call 'clickbait'. To get readers attention to read the article, and it looks like it has. Not considered fake news, compared to what you see on facebook.

It's not click-bait, the data was misrepresented in the content beyond the click. Lala has seen legacy media do this all the time. They also did something similar for Jimmy Savile, billionaire pedophile who raped over 400 children.

Just stop this. Bringing this up as your pet example of something you think is not Fake News even though though most reasonable people think it is, is one thing, but then going on and on about it steering the thread to be about this one issue is very troll-like and you've been asked before to stop this. Do not post again about "pizzagate" or other alleged pedophilia incidents on any thread, even if you think it might be slightly related.

It makes sense to do this, at least on a business level. Mainstream media, who's sole purpose is to gain watchers and money from advertisers aren't going to sit around and let a few people hanging out in a rented co-working office put them out of business. Therefore, they're going to be aggressively attacking these sites while mimicking the worst of behavior from them - the click bait, the editorial "journalism", and near-conspiracy theorist level of antagonism against "other" news sources. They (all mainstream media, not just CNN) is assuming that their 24/7 coverage of "the news" will continue to appeal to their market demographics.

Fox News is struggling due to their core demographic is dying off and the younger generation is refusing to pick them up (either because they've found a less mainstream conservative-bias news source or they're liberals and think that Fox News panders too heavily towards the conservative mindset). The average viewer for CNN is around 59 years old... Fox? 68 years old. MSNBC? 63 years old. The younger generation (15-50) get most of their news either from social media (Facebook/Twitter/Reddit) or independent news sources.. Let's just say this is their "Hail Mary" when it comes to trying to pander to the younger generation (all of mainstream media).

I don't agree with it; just understand why it's happening and will continue to happen. CNN will only be one of the first, of many, media outlets that will follow this line of reasoning.


Fox News: wrong.

Fox news has been the big winner this election cycle because they were the MSM that reported the most factual news with the least amount of spin. CNN viewer ship has been dropping every quarter while fox has been picking up a lot of those viewers. This election cycle has started a campaign to kill CNN because they are so biased and slanted we might as well call them a propaganda agency.

There are better links out there but it shows the basics.

That sounds very insulting, cool down a little I'm not sure what your trying to accomplish with that.

Well hello there Mr. Sarcasm.I hope you don't seriously think I think that. I do advocate tolerance but it does not come at all from a belief in people's goodness or sweetness.

Though I do quite like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlIUXvAdpcw (The Best of All Possible Worlds) as a song, I am not myself, nor have I ever been, such an innocent optimist.

CNN Lies about Japan's Virginity

Why would CNN purposefully misrepresent facts? Why would they out right tell lies? Why is it alright for CNN to give fake news, but not alternative news sources?


who exactly said it's ok again?
