The godfather of fake news
« on: November 27, 2018, 12:49:11 PM »
This is a lengthy article. I'm not sure of all the ins and outs. He may have written articles not beneficial to the Democrats but the main fellow in the article, the portly Christopher Blair, is a registered Democrat and seems to be from Maine.

"Blair, a committed liberal Democrat, was being lumped in with a whole host of people accused of peddling lies to inflate support for President Trump."

The godfather of fake news
Meet one of the world’s most  prolific writers of disinformation

By Anisa Subedar

Christopher Blair takes a sip of his coffee.

Then he carefully focuses on one of the three screens in front of him.

He’s in his home office, 45 minutes outside Portland, Maine, on the US East Coast.

Stroking his thick beard, he looks at his bookmarks bar.

He takes another sip before his coffee goes cold, inhales long and hard, then logs into the back end of one of his many websites.

He begins by choosing a subject. Which “lucky” politician will be on the receiving end of his attention today?

Bill Clinton? Hillary Clinton? One of the Obamas?

Or maybe the subject of his story won’t be a person, but a policy. Gun control? Police brutality? Feminism? Anything that will push buttons.

The USA has defeated great powers in Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan and Communism. What sometimes happens, is the worst enemy is the one within and progressivism is on the march.

I've put on my twitter profile for folks to come to this forum, the more the merrier.
