NBC Caught Lying About Chevrolet Trucks Exploding: Fake News? Here's some from NBC back in 1992.

"We acknowledge that the placing of the incendiary devices under the truck was a bad idea from start to finish."

I mentioned this right here within the past year, in response to a more recent incident where NBC got caught lying again. (Katie Couric?)

NBC is about the best place to make an example of in the new idea of holding entities accountable for their words and actions. SLAM em with a $1 Bil restitution fee, payable immediately, and the others will get inline pronto.

Fake news my ass, outright fraud!

Can we at least give NBC credit for inventing the IED?

The new term "Fake News" is perfectly Orwellian. But it doesn't take a genius to see that it is the old order's attempt to pull rank on the new-fangled internets gang.

"Why, in my day, we faked news with remote controlled explosives. Boy-diddly did that look good! Nowadays, you got that Photshopper or whatever it's called..."

Thank God for American Digest, and the bloggers present. We blog; you decide.

Jewel: to be sure.

Derision is our middle name.

Deciding to deride would be 'descrision'. Another good neologism I picked up from the Onion is 'frustrageous'.

I recall many years ago at the start of the fears of the Clinton assault weapons ban, one of the BIG 3 networks (don't recall which) spoke on the subject with of course, a fully automatic AK47 spraying in the background. The Clinton gun ban had NOTHING to do with fully automatic firearms. Misleading, certainly. Liberal pukes, MAKING the news.

@Snake: 4 words

"shall not be infringed"

The tyrants crossed that line long ago.
