PizzaGate explained

from RollingStone article Anatomy of a fake news scandal.

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

A good twenty minute read here.

Actually it was the fake moon landing that cost Hillary the election. Workers in Blue Wall states (under the spell of Russian chlorinated water - POE!) wanted to stop Hillary from faking a touchdown on the Red Planet - but only because she planned on exporting all the related fake jobs to TPP nations and China.

Here's how to keep safe in this post-truth era: the only way you can know a news story or op-ed is True News™ is if it comes from corporations spinning Russian conspiracy theories! (Trump is really a closet communist/lizard person and Soviet Russia only PRETENDED to end the Cold War 25 years ago!)

Perils of shopping online

Thought I'd try that new millennial thing this year. You know that online shopping thing using your computer, that the kids are all into today.  Saved a ton of time, however there were a few drawbacks.  On boxing Day I had to spend a half an hour with my eleven year old granddaughter explaining how Trump called Clinton nasty in the second debate and this girl in Kentucky wrote a slam poem about it and then Ashley Judd an old actress heard it and performed it at the women's march following Trump's inauguration and that the word Nasty on the black tank top I bought her from the Young Turks web store was actually a positive thing, in fact a shield for women to protect themselves from the assholes of the world.  Next year I'll try not to do my online shopping at three in the morning after a joint and couple single malts. Other than that it's been a pretty good Christmas season. Hope you are having a good time too.
