Fake Newsmen

This one needs to be fleshed out a bunch. But Fake News and Fake Newsmen are nothing new. Some claim to be commedians, or commentators, many pretend to be serious New Journalists. But real Journalists are trained to just give all sides of a story and trust their readers. Anyone that decides what parts to omit, and if they don't edit both sides equally, is not a real newsman -- even if they're treated as one.

David Lettermen


Bill Maher


Edward R. Murrow


Dan Rather: CBS

Main article: Dan Rather: CBS
Dan Rather has it all, fired from CBS for failing to vet forged documents, suing CBS and losing, and still defending his actions to this day. To a career of sloppy rumormongering, from reporting JFK's death before he could have it verified, taking the Vietcong's side in the Vietnam war, dressing up as a mujahideen fighter during Afghanistan war, his career is a parody of Ron Burgundy.

Jon Stewart

{TBD} - Even his name is fake: Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz.

Brian Williams



Fake Newsmen - if it was one or two Newsmen that had an opinion that occasionally slipped out, you could understand. People are allowed diversity of opinions, and Newsmen aren't perfectly unbiased. But when majority of them inject their Gun Control opinions into everything, and dwell on it (knowing that sensationalizing mass shootings gets more shootings), that all their bend and errors goes one way (against Guns, 2A or NRA), they make never correct errors of guests that are anti-gun, often argue with guests that are pro-Gun and know more, and it starts to paint a picture. It's not just outliers, there's no diversity of opinion, being ignorant about guns and have strong opinions against them, and propagandizing against guns, is virtually a requirement of the industry.
