The context of this one is actually far more absurd than anything implied by the visual.

This was from CNN's Missing Plane Fangirl phase and they were wondering if a black hole could have swallowed flight 370.

I know, that's what makes it so funny.

Sorry that I'm not here to stare at the forums all day


Also given that the the second paragraph of the OP literally explains it thusly:

I give you Shit CNN Says because we all know CNN is the king of fake news. This thread is not for political discussion it is for posting fake news, bashing the media, and memeing.


Yes...? Fake news, bashing the media and memeing. Not every single post has to be under the literal definition of fake, now does it?


You don't have a lot of room to act pedantic about the OP's supposed noble intentions.


I could care less about such trivial nonsense. These guys already do a good enough job making fools out of themselves complaining about every little thing the president does that they don't agree with, I think this balances things out pretty well if I do say so myself.

Then perhaps don't be so eager to comment on the state of them. >.>

No, but the prevailing intent was to bash CNN and focus on fake news. The OP then presented a bunch of examples. None of which were "fake". Also, the political shitposting. Which, despite the OP's claim the thread is not for politics he immediately made it political in the first reply to his own thread. -.-

Again, there is virtually no point in making a pedantic argument over this thread.

For those that have not seen it though, the context does help to highlight the sheer stupidity of it.

Pope Frances endorses Trump for PotUS:
http://endingthefed.com/pope-francis-shocks-world-endorses-donald-trump-for-president-releases-statement.html#.WABSrlpJhmw.twitter
whoops, they seem to have deleted the article... I wonder why

Remember the time Fox News said there were no-go zones in England and France? But when people that lived in the areas mentioned were asked about it, they had no idea what Fox was talking about?

How about the multiple times they claimed a guest was a CIA analyst when he never worked for the CIA. Or the "Swedish Defense Advisor" the Swedish government never heard of.

What about the time Fox claimed Sweden was reinstituting the draft over refugees?

Should I keep going?

This story's actually true though. My Mom was telling me about it because she was listening to Marketplace on Public Radio.

Yeah I don't watch CNN anymore, but Fox is just as bad, I just watch TYT or BBC.
Tired of Americas bullshit news.
They really need to report REAL news without any political agendas, just facts and what is going on.

Not too many years ago, I would have agreed re: BBC.

Sadly, for at least the past 3-5 years, they too have been heavily politically propagandized. They're hardly better than the US networks now.
