Fake news all the time
Well, I like it on the Comedy Channel when it is done openly, with a sense of humour and actual factual information as the base.
Last night our local NBC affiliate (WJAC out of Johnstown Pa. 11pm news) ran a top of the hour "Consumer Alert", explaining that the AARP was ripping off its members...
Story was an interview with a Mr Jarvis of USA Next.
Problem is, it was fake news. A precanned tape, I believe; an attack ad run as a news story. By an organization that is essentially a republican party front for damaging the AARP. How stupid is this.
