Paid protesters? Your Average standard news outlet, CNN,

MSNBC, Fox News, The Washington Post, the New York Times and many more news outlets are reporting FAKE NEWS given to them by elected representatives of the people. Republican Senators and Congressmen say things like, the protesters are being paid to attend Our Town Halls and causing disruption. That is a lie. It is fake news. Fake news created by someone who is not anonymous so it seems more reputable.

A representative of the government who speaks in front of the camera and says things like protesters are being paid or any other lie that you hear such as voter fraud is rampant and perpetrated by millions of people. That is fake news that is picked up by the mainstream media and speculated as possibly being the truth. This s*** has to stop. I think from now on every time a senator or congressman lies like that we should call it FAKE NEWS as opposed to a lie.

FAKE NEWS is the new buzzword, the new meme. The news media always considers a non anonymous political representative or surrogate standing in front of a mic blabbing anything as news. We need to start blaming elected officials as being the ultimate creator of FAKE NEWS. Simply because they know the media will pick up their words and report it as the truth.
It's not always some teenager in a secluded part of the world creating fake news. Sometimes it's the very face you see on television paraded out as the Arbiter of Truth.

Epic lying hypocrisy. Sean Spicer says Trump is not fear mongering then procedes to fear monger.

Trump said he knows more about terrorist threats than anyone. Fear mongering.
Reporter: Should the terror threat be elevated and an alert issued?
Spicer: We just need to be ready for any future threat. Fear mongering again.
Taking advantage of our innate human fear of flight, say from a fire, and using it to make us fearful is fear mongering.
Fear mongering is bullying. It is also a tool fascists use to control the masses.
