There has been fake news long before the past year.
There were the news of
Pearl Harbor. That we learn later the heads of our
government KNEW there were Japanese ships heading for our country.. But the government wanted to get into the
World War ii. But the people were so
against it. This left the door open with on the way to our country. Knowing
full well the American people would not take our shores being bombed.. And they didn’t.. Japan
That is why they let the Japanese diplomats cool their heels in the lobby, waiting to see our government officials, so they could declare war on
. But our government, let them cool their heels
there while they got word that USA
had actually been bombed. Hawaii
Same thing in the Vietnam war… we were lied to as General Westmoreland told the reporters we were winning battles that we weren’t and that he lowered the count of deaths.
And then there is the ship called the USS Pueblo, that got us in to another citizen protest war.
So many things have been printed over the years, only to be found out later that it was not true.. Fake news..
And sadly I doubt it will be better, more likely worse.
