As the Washington Post began to realize they were clearly losing the battle for the American Mind–a battle of which they started–also known as the “War on Fake New,” they have now decided to throw in the towel. The Post has declared the widely overused term “Fake News”(predominately overused by WaPo and its deceptive ilk) as “tainted” and announced its use over, as if it were some decree that all us peasant-folk must adhere to.
Well, some bad news for you WaPo; this battle is just getting started. You see, those of us in the alternative media that you called out, journalists with actual moral integrity and a desire to inform the people, do not just run away when the going gets tough. We rise up, push on and brace for the consequences; we don’t just slink back to our corner when the battle begins to turn. Those true champions of the alternative community that you so halfheartedly called out, do not do this for glory, or for riches, as both are frequently absent in this profession, but rather for the good of the American people; for the good of everyone.
As foreign as that altruistic mentality may be in the mainstream mockingbird media, it is flourishing within our ranks, and we are coming for you; not with accusations, threats, or manipulation, but with your worst enemy … the Truth.
